Relationship Counseling

Since we are all living in a society and have relationships in our families and extended families, some or more amount of discord between members in a relationship is bound to occur. At times this may become rather acute and take extreme connotations. The following different types of counseling are offered in this regards

  • Marriage or Couples Counseling. This includes pre marital as well as post marital counseling and includes the issues like coping with transition, expectation management with each other as well as extended families and conflict resolutions.

These problems manifest themselves as chronic depression and anxiety and also have secondary effects at other places in society and workplace.


Parenting can be a terrifying responsibility to take on for most of us. Being responsible for bringing a child into the world and raising him/her right is something many of us might feel unprepared for. With Parent counseling we ensure that the bond between parent and child is strengthened by understanding parenting styles and adopting changes as per the child.

What children do or achieve in their lives has direct and an overbearing connection with the kind of parenting the child has been subjected to.
