Counselling & Case Works

We provide individual case counselling and group support services from the perspective of women, for women who are faced with marital problems, abuse, or emotional stress.

BackEnquiry

We help counselees examine their issues in individual meetings and group activities so they can gain a better understanding of who they are and explore their personal strengths. We also assist women in need with assessing their situations and helping them learn of new resources available to them. These in turn raise their ability to face adversity and contribute to their physical and mental health. We also refer counselees to other social service agencies should the need arise. We also organised support groups for women experiencing marital problems, women experiencing psychological problems, and carers. The groups provided various means of support – by learning music, exploring one's self, and providing a "filling station for the soul". Women can relieve their distress and establish close bonds, while also advising their peers and sharing community resources. With the group's focus on empowerment and self-reliance, women are able to improve their difficult circumstances.
