In each family a story is playing itself out, and each family’s story embodies its hope and despair.
Family therapy is based on the belief that every family has its own sets of values and principles and thus is unique. The personalities of all the family members and the influence of the extended family( grandparents, aunts and uncles) determine the family structure and their pattern of communication.
Sometimes illness in one family member maybe a symptom of a larger family problem. In such cases it becomes necessary to treat the entire family. Any change in one member of the family affects both the family structure and each member individually. Thus family therapist works on the whole family.
A Family therapist has many roles namely it teaches the members about how a family functions, helps the family to focus more on the family as a whole and less on the member with a illness , helps the family to resolve their internal conflicts and teaches ways to cope with the anxieties.
On a whole .it enables the family members to care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives


It’s a beautiful thing when a career and passion come together.
Academic life is a bewildering maze marked by intense competition, peer pressure and stress, not to mention the dilemma of making right career choices. Students are plagued by confusion, doubts and negative thoughts. In this scenario, the education counselor provides valuable advice. Education counselors not only just build careers but also work as a support system that helps youngsters grow as individuals and professionals
In olden days the only ones to guide the like minds were the parents and other senior family members. Therefore, we see a large number of cases where type of job and basic qualification a person possesses are totally divorced. This sometimes has raised serious concern about the utility of education per se.
In the last decade things have changed. Today’s youth are more focused, inquisitive. Knowledgeable and ambitious. Educations counselors help to channelize these attributes for the betterment of the youth and its environment.

They assist students in making career decisions after evaluating their abilities, interests and skills through interviews, personality and aptitude assessments. The mutually chosen career path is best suited to the candidate’s profile, interests and limitations. Counselors work with students also to develop organization, time management, stress management, effective study habits and other such vital skills.

Today, counselors also have to be involved in helping students deal with learning disabilities, substance abuse, death, suicide, divorce and other crisis situations. Not just limited to students, educational counselors also collaborate with parents, teachers and other school staff in a bid to monitor and evaluate educational progress, update them about individual growth so that the student has the best chance of success.



Many couples get caught up in spending time planning their weddings without developing a plan for their marriage. The early stages of a relationship, when the feelings you have for your partner are usually positive, is the ideal time to become more conscious and intentional in the ways you interact and work together. Counseling can give you insights into where your particular relationship dynamics might be heading in the wrong direction.
Premarital counseling deals with how past relationships might impact the marriage and how to manage these influences, how to improve communications toward deeper levels of intimacy, how to express love to each other, how to balance roles and responsibilities, and other issues important to the couple. Premarital counseling will help minimize surprises and prepare couples for a marriage that can survive even the most difficult seasons of life
Once upon a time marriage was a ‘forever’ commitment. Today, however, it’s a completely different story with some marriages being as short lived as just a few days or months. Divorce is no longer an alien or feared word among couples.
Couples counseling is a form of therapy that looks to improve communication and resolve issues within an intimate relationship. It’s a talk therapy for two people within a relationship.
Common relationship problems faced are lack of trust, betrayal, jealousy, lack of communications, financial issues, abusive behavior, sexual problems, family conflicts and other life changes. The aim of the counselor is to help them understand external factors such as family values, religion, and lifestyle; reflect on the past and how to operate the present, communicate in a more constructive way, understand the source of the argument, negotiate and resolve conflicts where possible.
Counselling will offer you the space to grow and decide what you would like the future to hold for both of you.

“Occupation” refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure. –
Occupation is subjectively experienced. For example:to one person the occupation of “shopping” feels like “a real chore”, to another it’s “fun”, to yet another it’s “a chance to relax”. Activity can be classified into cultural categories such as “work”, but each occupation is experienced as blend of productivity, pleasure and restoration.

Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages to help them overcome the effects of disability caused by physical or psychological illness, ageing or accident. Occupational therapist advice you on how to approach a task differently how to use equipment or assistive technology, how to adapt your living or working environment, and help you find strategies to reach your chosen goals.

Many people have a problem with sex at some point in their life. Some people deal with these problems themselves but, for others, sexual problems can cause a lot of distress and unhappiness.
Individuals living with long-term sexual problems are often too ashamed and embarrassed to discuss their concerns with anyone – not even their partner – and this can take a toll on their sex life, relationships and well-being. Psychosexual therapy provides an outlet for people to talk about their issues with a trusted and supportive therapist who specializes in resolving all kinds of sexual problems.
A sex therapist will listen to you describe your problems and assess whether the cause is likely to be psychological, physical or a combination of the two.

Talking about and exploring your experiences will help you get a better understanding of what is happening and the reasons. The therapist may also give you exercises and tasks to do with your partner in your own time.

Some of the problems faced are lack of desire, difficulty in keep an erection ordifficulty having an orgasm, premature ejaculation or other ejaculation problems, pain during sex or inability to have penetrative sex.
