Often times, individuals seek counseling in order to work on specific struggles that hinder their quality of life; struggles such as depression, eating disorders, the effects of childhood sexual or physical abuse, compulsive behaviors, gender confusion, relational problems, or other personal concerns.
Couples who are planning on marriage seek premarital counseling for a variety of reasons. Some couples want to better understand issues of compatibility, individual strengths and weaknesses each partner brings to the relationship, communication and relational styles, and personality differences. Other couples have specific concerns they want to address before marriage.
Couples generally choose to enter marriage counseling in order to work on pressing problems in the marital relationship that either robs of satisfaction, joy, and closeness, and/or that threaten the foundation of the marriage.
Groups can be powerful venues for change. Groups allow a person to practice what it means to be in relationship by giving and receiving help, feedback, and encouragement from others. Several types of therapy groups are offered at Drennan & Associates Christian Counseling. Please check with our office to see which groups are currently available.
The focus of life coaching is on personal growth and improvement. Consider life coaching if you are functioning well, but want to overcome obstacles that keep you from greater fulfillment.
