- Overseas deployment preparation for aid/development workers, and mission workers
- Debrief on return for leave or termination for aid/development workers, and mission workers
Many of the concerns in our life involve other people. Whenever possible, a collaborative approach is used, involving partners, friends, and family members when appropriate. Children, adolescents, adult men and women, couples and the elderly are included. The session format could include individuals, a couple, families, or children. When working with children, I incorporate art therapy, play therapy or sand tray. Parents and siblings are encouraged to be a part of the session when this is appropriate.
I am accredited to use PREARE/ENRICH. This is a useful online survey for a couple preparing for marriage, or for a couple who would like to take stock of their relationship.
Currently I am not taking new couples who are in crisis for relationship counselling.
For anyone preparing to work overseas in aid and development, or Christian mission, I have personal experience from living as an expatriate for over 20 years, and I would consider it a privilege to assist in preparing them for such ventures, and for debriefing on return.
