Restoring a Marriage

When we first approached Joseph in late 2018, I felt that our marriage was not salvageable because of all the problems we seemed to have.

But through a series of very quick individual sessions, Joseph had managed to peg down some of deeply recessed problems that we had been suppressing for a very long time. And he managed to build a strong rapport with my wife so she had the courage to finally speak her mind so we could resolve the issues that had always been deeply buried in her heart.

With his guidance, our couple sessions were very fruitful and we were able to start having proper genuine conversations again and we were able to start holding each other accountable for our actions without it descending into blame fighting.

By 9 months, we had gone from having cold wars and fighting, to being able to have discussion about proper parenting of our daughter and how to address her developmental needs. We continue to see Joseph regularly as his experience and jovial nature help to keep conversations on topic and focused on resolving problems.

We still want to keep seeing Joseph, so if you are reading this, please go pick a different counselor.
Joseph is already hard enough to book an appointment with as it is. Thanks.

Thank You Note

I’ve laughed and cried in those sessions with you. I was angry and hurt and ashamed, but most importantly, I’ve healed. Thank you for helping me cope with the pain and also how to see things differently.

Powering Up to Face Upcoming Challenges

Finding a Safe Space and Overcoming Unhelpful Thoughts

I came to SCC hoping to find a safe space to share my thoughts and feelings surrounding the difficulties I was experiencing. Rafeah was able to create that safe space for me where I felt comfortable to open up and trust her.

Overcoming a Past Relationship

After the break up, it was even harder to accept reality and how things had turn out leading me to getting disturbed sleep and losing my focus in a lot of things. To be honest, at that moment, crying, feeling helpless, not wanting to accept any help (feeling that I am not even worth helping) and committing suicide was even on my thoughts.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

I’m happier than I was a couple months ago. I feel less afraid of the constantly-changing world and how I thought I needed to fix everything that was wrong and evil going on all the time, if not I was just wasting my life. I have a lot of gratitude for Rafeah because she sat with me through all of this, and helped guide me towards a lot of insight and revelations about myself.

Looking Forward to Creating The Life I Desire

Now, I have the ability to do things I could never have done previously since my mind is clear without unbearable amounts of repressed grief, anger and extreme feelings of injustice clouding my justice and hampering my ability to focus and prioritize.

I felt overwhelmed at first but step by step she guided me through and I overcame my negative thoughts and got rid of toxic people in my life who I previously thought were not affecting me at all.

[Testimonial] Discovering My Own Identity and Understanding Myself

I have gained a better understanding of myself and learned to be better than who I was previously after attending the counseling sessions. I'm very grateful to the counsellor for everything which he has done to help us as we wouldn't have made much progress without him.
