Life coaching is to develop one’s potential and live a fuller life. The coaching process allows one to feel “seen”, “heard” and appreciated as a unique individual. More importantly, the processes will deploy a person’s strengths and talents, so that the development is organic and sustained.
Misunderstanding and unmet needs between intimate partners can transform that which was once termed the ‘perfect relationship’ into one that is unhealthy. Often the course of the sessions, the psychologist can help couples structure a new interaction pattern, and by so doing, restoring back and even improving the quality of the relationship.
Crisis or trauma is any event that is unexpected, and which can be threatening. Very often, the experience is subjectively intense and overwhelming. As a result, a person could feel helpless and dysfunctional. Suitable and appropriate interventions would be needed to mitigate risk of post-traumatic stress disorder, and other serious pathological responses.
Loss is very much a part of life. When we hear the phrase “grief and loss”, we tend to think of death and dying. But there are many kinds of losses. There can be loss of relationship, jobs, home, youth, responsibilities and health. Such losses can evoke equally strong sense of grief and deep sadness. Therefore getting professional help can help a person develop greater coping resources.
Depression affects the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things. A depressive disorder is not the same as a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal weakness. People with a depressive illness cannot merely "pull themselves together" and get better.
Anxiety is a normal response that we experience in daily life. Anxiety can be useful in helping us avoid dangerous situations, making us alert and giving us the motivation to deal with problems. However, when such feelings are intense and sustained over a period of time, it can lead to an anxiety disorder that can interfere with one’s day-to-day living. The impact can be devastating and disruptive to that person’s personal, emotional, social, physical and occupational life. Psychological intervention includes being knowing about the condition, overcoming avoidance, and controlled breathing and relaxation techniques. It may also involve making lifestyle changes that reduce stress, and enhance problem-solving skills and ongoing supportive counselling.
