INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING SINGAPORE:
A Path to Self-Discovery

Share Your Thoughts – Without Feeling Judged

 

Through 1-on-1 sessions, counsellors help guide clients through a step-by-step discovery process. With the right outlook and given time, these sessions can help you internalise your inner thoughts, sort out your personal feelings, and introduce a steady sense of support and calm in your life.

Purpose of Counselling

 

Some questions you might be trying to find your personal answers to might include:

 

• Why am I unhappy with my life?

  • How can Marriage Counselling help in Affair Recovery?
    Affair recovery is a complex and challenging process that requires commitment from both partners. To help couples recover from infidelity and rebuild trust in their relationship, counsellors can offer support and help them navigate the specific challenges they face. Through creating a safe space for both partners to express their emotions, fear, guilt, shame and concerns openly, counsellors guide the couples in the following: Understanding the reasons and impact caused by the infidelity. Rebuilding trust - a critical component of infidelity recovery. Having an open and honest communication by both partners - learning active listening skills, empathy, and effective ways to express their feelings and needs without resorting to blame or defensiveness. Restoring emotional intimacy and rebuilding emotional connection. Addressing underlying issues, exploring unmet needs, improving conflict management skills, renegotiating roles and responsibilities, or addressing other relationship dynamics that contributed to the infidelity. Developing a new relationship foundation based on trust, honesty, and mutual respect.
  • What can I expect during a marriage counselling session?
    During marriage counselling sessions, you and your partner will have an open discussion regarding your issues, actively listen to each other and provide constructive feedback. A licensed counsellor facilitates these conversations, helping you identify underlying patterns and equip you with tools & techniques.
  • Can my partner and I see each other's answers?
    No. The assessment is done separately where each of you will receive a unique login and password. Neither of you can access the other’s information at any time, and we encourage you not to share your login information with your partner in order to preserve the integrity and effectiveness of the questionnaire.
  • Will I get a copy of my results?
    A summary report will be given to you and the detailed results will be given to your therapist to review, interpret the analysis, and more importantly discuss with you ways for improving your relationship. You can choose to continue engaging us to work on this aspect or seek other forms of help.
  • How long does it take to complete the assessment?
    Typically, it takes between one to two hours to complete. The length of time is dependent on the complexity of the issue. You can choose to either complete it in one sitting or in parts if you like. The system will save your input and allow you to continue from where you left off.
  • What happens after we complete the questionnaire?
    When you and your partner have completed the questionnaire, a report will be available on your therapist’s dashboard with the complete results and suggested therapeutic interventions.
  • I am interested in the checkup. How do I proceed?
    Great, you can get in touch with us by email at info@lifeaffinity.com. We will invite you and your spouse for a first consultation before you get started with the tool.
  • Who created this assessment tool? How reliable is this tool in helping our relationship?
    The tool is developed by Drs John and Julie Gottman in collaboration with The Gottman Institute. Dr. John Gottman is a clinical psychologist known for his work in marital stability and relationship analysis. Dr. Julie Gottman is a clinical psychologist who has extensive experience in private practice and teaching settings. The tool is developed from 40 years of research with thousands of couples and relies on intensive, detailed, and evidence-based information on why relationships succeed or fail.
  • What is pre marriage counselling?
    Pre marriage counselling helps couples prepare for marriage. It intends to guide you and your partner in discussing important issues like raising children, finances and potential conflict areas before settling down. With the guidance of a trained counsellor, you will both understand each other's beliefs, goals and values. You will learn how to navigate family dynamics and keep the romance alive through good communication & problem-solving skills.
  • When should we start pre marriage counselling?
    We highly recommend that you book a pre-marriage counselling session several months before the wedding day. This is to allow enough time for assessments, discussions and making changes that will address or fix both of your concerns.
