Relationship Counselling

It’s common that people in a relationship need assistance from time to time.

Good relationships involve honesty, respect, open communication, the language of love. It may be a partner, parent, sibling, child, work college or friend.

There can be disappointment, hurts, abuse, and brokenness. Enriching your efforts, attending to concerns, forgiveness, and building more fulfilling relationships will be nurtured in the counseling sessions.

Carer and Foster Counselling

Mental health is staying well within the abilities a person has to cope with everyday life. Anchor counselors have a passion to support carers, aiming to lift them up. Often Carers have high demands and increased stress. Lack of relief, isolation, trauma, loss, daily complications.

Through mindfulness and several therapeutic caring models, the outcomes will be to benefit you and those you care for.
