Group counselling is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. This type of counselling is widely used to address issues at mental health clinics, rehabs, and community centres.
Group counselling helps individuals develop communication and socialization skills and allows clients to learn how to express themselves and accept criticism from others. Individuals participating in group counselling are able to listen and identify with others having similar issues, thereby developing self-awareness and confidence.
In many problems, the person may feel shy or stigmatized in talking about his or her issues – the group makes them feel that they are not alone and can be part of group seeking similar solutions.
Group counselling is useful on many levels. The two most prominent are:
Sisterhood will be running online. You and the counsellors will be meeting once a month to share your struggles and get your questions answered.
Every month we will be discussing a theme. The theme would either be most relevant to you or your least struggle.

Once per quarter we will gather. Meet, talk and mingle.
What you need to join the session:
Sessions will run for a few days a week. Participants will be able to select available slots upon registration.
According to research, an individual who possesses a high level of self-efficacy can achieve personal success as well as behave positively.

When your world is moving slowly and the weight on your shoulder is heavy, you would lack motivation. Especially when the things in your life does not spark joy anymore.

It has become a necessity these days for women to work and contribute to the household financially. Working would mean that you would be compromising your time with the children and in doing the household chores.

Usually, the relationship with the spouse suffers.
It is either right or wrong, black or white, fantastic or awful and perfect or failure. It is never in between. You are more at peace and harmony when you live it balanced. To get things perfect all the time will need you to be a failure first and for some this is unacceptable. Is it wrong to have it this way?
The thought always comes to mind if you are diagnosed with certain disorders. Unsupportive friends and family will label you as insane. Are you really insane?
In this modern world, there are varieties of addiction from chemical and behavioural addiction. With addiction it is only of two things; either we are aware or unaware of it.
For most victims, when it happened the first time, they made excuses telling themselves that it will not happen again and that she/he did not mean to do it. Then it happened again and again and once you come to realize, it has become a ritual. An abusive relationship is not just limited to physical abuse, it can also be sexual abuse, domestic violence, emotional abuse, discriminatory abuse, and financial abuse. But how do we snap out of it? Coming out and telling people we trust can sometimes become costly to our relationship with the abuser, family, and people around us.
Some of the challenges that one may struggle with is that they are not able to get married even if they want to. Not that there are no suitable candidates around or available, but the responsibility of ‘being responsible’. Caring for the parents, or responsible for the siblings, working multiple jobs.

Communication is vital in daily life. When you have ‘no one understands me’ in your mind, most of the time it is because how we communicate with people.

One of the skills is to strike a balance between all the roles that a mother holds, daughter, sister, wife, mother and professional. Juggling these roles can influence many.

Some of the common problems that a family will face are divorce, illness/disability of a family member, financial constrain, unemployment, favoritism, addiction and many more.

On the other hand, some might find their family to be toxic for them as these issues are the thing that constitute to their well-being.
One of the customs of certain cultures is to live with the in laws, never mind that you can afford to live on your own. In certain circumstances, it is a responsibility to live with the in laws.
