Understanding My Past and Equipping Myself for a Better Future

I never thought I would go for counseling, as I felt there was a stigma against it. However, a major life event put me through a period of depression and made me want to make a change to the person I was.

Since I was young, I have always had emotional problems; I was called a problem child. I grew up with a bad temper and had a lot of insecurities about myself. I survived most of the thirty years of my life this way, making up for what I lacked by pursuing achievement for achievement’s sake and getting into relationships that did not make me happy.

Through the many sessions, I learned to be more self-aware and reflective of my emotions and actions. I also understand better why I am the person I am today, and how I can take steps to change myself for the future. I take comfort knowing that I am better equipped to handle myself as a person, though I also know that this is only the start of the journey. There are still stones left unturned, that I will need to face sooner or later.

Thank you for being a good listener, mentor, and for being a friend.

[Testimonial] Dissolving Anxiety

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.

[Testimonial] Restoring a Relationship

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.

These sessions have always been my favourite part of the week. I'm not sure what I am going to do without you, you've been my best friend, my biggest supporter and saw something special in me. Thank you.

I walked into the room for my first session with Joseph as a unbalanced and volatile individual who had witnessed his wife cheating on him, and I walked out 6 months later as a composed and mentally enlightened individual.

[Testimonial] Resolving anger issues

My improvement came after a few sessions and the rest of the sessions were spent on behavioral situations with my current (multi cultural) relationship.

[Testimonial] Once overwhelmed with negative thoughts, I am now blooming with optimism

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.

[Testimonial] Knowing how to handle my anxiety better

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.

[Thank You Note] Client M

Just wanted to let you know that I'm thankful that our paths have crossed. Wishing you good health, happiness and peace always!

[Testimonial] I Look at Life Differently Now and Appreciate Myself More

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.
