Below are some of the areas where our trained counsellors, coaches and psychologists at The Sanctuary can help.

Family
Marriage Counselling

Marriage rates supposedly are on the decline. While it’s an oft-repeated statistic that 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce, that number has remained unchanged for the past 30 years. 

Marriage counselling, sometimes called couples therapy or counselling, is a type of psychotherapy that helps couples to explore, recognise, and resolve conflicts.

Family
Children Counselling

Child counselling aims to help children cope better with their emotions, understand problems, develop necessary coping skills and make positive choices. With divorce, children may experience negative effects such as denial, feelings of abandonment, anger, blame, guilt, preoccupation with reconciliation, and acting out. Counselling gives the child the opportunity to talk about how they feel without the fear of judgement. 

Family
Teen Counselling

Adolescence has been called the most confusing, frustrating, challenging and fascinating phase of human development. There are a number of factors including physical changes, sexual changes, interpersonal changes, morals, values, religious beliefs, self-esteem and future concerns that contribute to adolescent problems. Teen counselling is aimed at helping young people make sense of their feelings, thoughts and behaviours. 

Grief
Loss/Death Counselling.

Bereavement and grief encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger. The process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another. It often depends on a person’s background, beliefs, and relationship to what was lost. Counselling is an opportunity to explore your feelings and memories without judgment. No loss is too big or too small to warrant support. You do not have to endure your grief alone.

Grief
Divorce Counselling

The end of a marriage is one of the most stressful events a person can experience in his/her life time. Divorce is likely to bring up a range of very painful emotions such as grief, guilt, anger, confusion, fear, shame, and anxiety. 

Counselling can help you or your partner decide whether to stay in a marriage, whether to leave a marriage, or how to transition from married life to single life. 

Grief
Depression Counselling

Depression, characterised by sadness or despair, is linked to many mental health conditions and may manifest in mild or a chronic form. Unlike the occasional bout of feeling sad, depression affects your daily life, making it hard for you to find enjoyment in day-to-day activities. Living with depression can be incredibly difficult, for both those suffering and those around them, however, depression is a very treatable condition. Get help today. 

Trauma
Addiction Counselling

Recovering from addiction is difficult, as many individuals with alcohol or drug dependency fail to recognise their own patterns of abuse, or have ambivalent feelings about seeking treatment. Substance abuse counsellors provide a necessary support system for individuals recovering from eating disorders, drug and alcohol issues, gambling addictions, and other behavioural issues. 

Trauma
Abuse Counselling

Abuse is a misuse of power intended to harm or control another person. The maltreatment can be physical, verbal, or emotional. All types of abuse can cause pain and psychological distress. Survivors of abuse may have intense, negative feelings long after the abuse has ended. Anxiety, flashbacks, and trust issues are common in people who have experienced abuse. Yet the effects of abuse do not have to be permanent, thats where we can help. 

Trauma
Suicide Counselling

Suicidal ideation is a common medical term for thoughts about suicide. Thoughts may be fleeting in nature, or they may persist and resolve into a formulated plan. People who find themselves experiencing suicidal thoughts or behaviours may find that they do so as a result of conditions such as depression, hopelessness, severe anxiety, insomnia, or panic attacks. All suicidal ideation and behaviour should be taken seriously, its important to identify the warning signs.
