Successful Client Stories
One of Tabitha’s clients was a couple client with young children, who were on the brink of divorce. They would get into frequent quarrels due to their different expectations towards their roles & responsibilities. Through counselling, Tabitha was able to help the clients gain greater awareness & understanding of their differing expectations. They also learned how to communicate love and care to each other, and gained better communication skills to convey their needs to one another more constructively. As a result, they were able to mend and build up on their relationship.
Another of Tabitha’s clients was a couple client, who were struggling in their relationship due to the wife’s fear of infidelity. Tabitha provided a safe space for the couple to share their stories, and also helped the couple to understand the underlying reasons behind these fears. Through counselling, the husband learned ways to acknowledge & alleviate his wife’s fears while the wife also learned how to regulate & manage her own emotions. On top of them, the couple also learned how to communicate love and care to each other, strengthening the connection between them.
