Rather than tiding it over and leaving things to chance, we decided to seek professional help through marriage counseling.
He played an important role of a neutral party as he listened to our grievances and sorrows. I feel that a neutral party plays an important role in allowing us to share each other’s viewpoints without getting into a heated dispute.
He has taught me so many things for the past one year like emotional intelligence, how to deal with social anxiety, how to not live in the past and how to think positively in life by doing it step by step.
Anxiety was a staple in my life once upon a time. I tried all sorts of self-coping techniques but they did not seem to work so I just wanted to give up. However, I told myself that I would give counselling a try before that and so I met Joseph.
Joseph gave in his 200% effort in helping us, and the effort went a long way in helping both of us work through our traumas, both separately and collectively. Working with Joseph really gave us the internal strength to continue on, and for us to even consider taking our relationship to the next step.
My improvement came after a few sessions and the rest of the sessions were spent on behavioral situations with my current (multi cultural) relationship.
I for one, will definitely not lose faith on myself so easily ever again. Sometimes, we all just need to change our outlook on life.
I came to SCC during my darkest period of time when I was 17. I was afraid of judgment from my social group of friends and I felt I was not good enough to express any of my opinions and felt that everyone was out to get and hurt me.
After the next four or five sessions I saw the changes in me. I became more positive, less miserable and at last I could look forward to doing things rather than having a negative outlook all the time.
