Guiding change, acceptance and compromise

Life Changes & Challenges

 

Change can be challenging: ill-health, tension, trauma, grief and loss, difficulties in the workplace, family and relationship challenges, life transitions, career changes, personal circumstance changes, relationship breakups, and divorce can all impact one's psychological wellbeing. As much as change can be fundamentally transformative, it can also lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief or trauma.

 

These particularly challenging life situations that arise can create a need to find better solutions, to problem-solve, or to make emotional adjustments.

Mediation

 

Differences and disagreements can be part of everyday life, but in some cases, stubborn conflict can build up, emotions escalate, and effective communication can start to break down, resulting in an impasse where the parties involved need some impartial support to move things forward.

 

This is where Bozena can step in to help. With over 15 years of experience in mediation, she has helped de-escalate conflict, clarify and identify the underlying issues, and work with both parties to facilitate a mutually acceptable and workable solution. 

Couples Counselling / Relationship Therapy

 

Being happy in our relationships are an integral part of our overall happiness. By the same token, when our loving relationship doesn't bring us the closeness and romance we hoped for, we feel lonely, sad, disillusioned, and miserable.

Bozena is trained and experienced in the field of relationships and restoring harmony and closeness. From pre-marital counselling to post-baby disconnect, same-sex couples or blended families, Bozena's kind and impartial counselling can bring healing. Couples counselling is unique to every couple. Some of the issues that might be addressed are understanding the default dynamic of your relationship, communicating effectively, cooperative parenting styles, in-laws, nurturing closeness, connection, and friendship.
