People seek counselling for a variety of reasons. They may be looking for strategies to manage life and relational issues, parenting challenges, or workplace concerns. Sometimes they are involved in a conflict and need support to resolve it. Whatever the reasons for seeking counselling, Human Connections can help clients explore a wide range of issues and assist in developing strategies and a plan to work through it. At Human Connections therapy is client driven. In each therapeutic session, we encourage active client participation in the process, goals and outcomes, meaning that clients set therapy goals and outcomes.
Some of the topics Human Connections can with clients include (but are not limited to):
- Workplace issues
- Grief and loss
- Substance use/abuse
- Low self-esteem
- Body image
- Relationship concerns
- Family responsibilities

Even strong relationships can experience difficulties and challenges somewhere along the way. Economic hardship, job loss, life transitions, infidelity, or family illness can impact how couples interact and relate to one another. Couples often seek counselling when they cannot resolve conflict, have difficulty communicating or need help with parenting. Counselling provides an opportunity to restore and enhance positive ways of relating.
