A general counselling practice that provides individual, couple, and family counselling services. We assist people in improving their well-being and reaching their desired goals by providing education, guidance and support.
Our mission is to support our clients through their every day life challenges. We help them find workable solutions so they can feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.
Counselling is designed to improve your mental and emotional health, and your relationships with others. When you’re feeling troubled by a situation at home, work, or in your relationships, and you’re struggling to find ways to move forward, it's important to reach out and seek assistance. Counselling offers you a private and confidential space where you can take time out to work through any life issues that have you feeling emotionally out of sorts or mentally drained. Counselling supports you by helping you gain emotional awareness and mental clarity, thereby giving you a better understanding of your problem and ways to resolve it. After working with you to create new ways of managing, you'll be well on your way to increasing your sense of wellbeing and achieving your desired goals.
Length of session: 50-60 mins
Creating a harmonious, rewarding relationship with your partner doesn't always come easily. Many of us have not been taught all the skills required to relate in a healthy, assertive way, particularly when it comes to managing disagreement, resolving conflict and maintaining intimacy in the relationship. Couples counselling is a great tool to help you develop these skills. Learn how to identify and validate needs, how to respectfully communicate and diffuse conflict, how to effectively problem solve, how to balance your lifestyle to allow the relationship to grow. These skills ultimately lead to greater relationship intimacy, resilience & longevity.
Length of session: 80-90 mins
If you're experiencing difficulties in your relationships with family, friends or work colleagues, group appointments can be arranged. This can be a wonderful forum for all members to speak their point of view and feel heard. Participants are taught how to communicate effectively, and work towards creating their own solutions in a safe environment with the help of a facilitator. Learn healthy, assertive communication skills along the way that assist in creating more harmonious family, work and social relationships.
Length of session: 110-120 mins

"I highly recommend Counselling Resolutions to anyone seeking to improve their well being. Rayma's widsom, guidance and support means each session is productive and leaves you feeling equipped with the skills to handle any situation. In my time at counselling I have gained my confidence back and keep a positive outlook on life and all it throws at me. I will be forever thankful for my time with Rayma." Chloe
“We first contacted Counselling Resolutions to get an independent view on a number of issues in our marriage which we didn’t seem to be able to resolve ourselves – the usual things like cleaning, communication, money and the like. While Paul was initially reluctant to speak to a counsellor, we both found that the perspective that Rayma brought to our situation and the tools and resources that she made available to us helped our communication and allowed us to better work through issues. We sought her advice again when other issues arose and had the same positive experience. While we continue to be faced with the challenges of marriage on an ongoing basis, we are better equipped to work through issues and communicate more positively with each other. We couldn’t recommend Counselling Resolutions more highly to other couples who want to build a stronger relationship.” Paul and Jody
"I am a long time sufferer of panic attacks and anxiety……. That is how I met Rayma Adams. From the moment I walked into her office I felt completely at ease and ready to start my new life, I just needed to know how. With the help from Rayma I have been able to retrain the way I think and have changed my thought process to avoid going into a state of panic. Believe me this is something I have to work on every day but Rayma showed me that I could do it and not to be afraid to try. I cannot thank you enough Rayma, you really are an angel." Liesa
