Counselling, based on the grace of God, provides a professional relationship between a professional counsellor and counselee to overcome life challenges in any form: personal, marital, social or psychological. Counselling is not preaching or advising of what to do or not to do; it is a team effort to explore the grass-root issues, relevant causes, and optimal ways to overcome them. Success of counselling depends, not only on the counsellor’s personality and skills, but also on the counselee’s willingness to understand issues and change unhealthy behavior.
Counsellors meet with individuals, couples, and families to discuss personal, marital, family, social and psychological issues. They listen to issues, analyze situations holistically and devise a treatment plan for optimal resolution. This team effort aims at securing the counselee’s commitment to work on a treatment plan and assessing progress going forward.
Counsellors are independent practitioners and they provide their professional services at SMSV. Counsellors are either volunteers or paid practitioners. All counsellors adhere to the professional code of ethics and confidentiality.
The Counselling office at SMSV is located at the lower level near the entrance of the underground parking. During the current pandemic, counselors conduct all counseling sessions virtually on different online platforms.
If you would like counselling help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment or you may contact counselors directly.
