Individual Counselling is aimed at helping you to cope with the ups and downs of everyday life that can cause stress, anxiety and depression. It is a collaborative effort between you and your counselor. Our goal at Journeys of Life Counselling Services Inc., is to provide an open, supportive, and confidential environment for you at our counselling office to address the matters that are concerning you. We all need some help sometimes.
There is no such thing as a perfect relationship, but it is certainly a reasonable expectation to have one that includes safety, security, respect, compromise, friendship, closeness, comfort, intimacy, passion and fun. If your marriage or relationship has become a struggle, or you’re concerned it could be taking a turn for the worse, couples counselling might be your best option. Journeys of Life Counselling Services is here to help.
Sometimes when you and your immediate/blended/extended family members are struggling, the road ahead can seem confusing and intimidating. When you begin to reach out for help it may feel as if you are struggling to put the pieces of a puzzle together. Through family counselling at Journeys of Life Counselling Services Inc. in Fort McMurray, AB, we can help you begin to solve that puzzle. Together, we can figure out possibilities.
