Tackling our modern-day life involves a lot of stress which affects our physical and emotional functions. Illness, communication problems, infidelity, family and marriage problems, sexual issues and anger— all can contribute to distress in marriages/ families and human relationships.
However, family and Marriage Counselling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds. Many developing societies, such as in some Gulf countries, are living through vast transitions that put us under a lot of distress. At times life can be extremely difficult to cope with. We may have had a lonely childhood or as an adult, we may seem to be always dealing with the wrong hand. We may have lived with many family issues and family problems. We may want to live happily but do not know-how. Whatever is the reason, life is tough and on occasions, we need a little time and a helping hand to gather our thoughts so that we can think clearly and make healthy life choices that are essential to us.
Moreover, as the world changes at a rate unimaginable even a few years ago, it is increasingly difficult to stay connected to fundamental skills and values. In our modern societies, no one is going to slow down the world, nor would many of us want to! Life issues are common problems, issues and crises that happen to normal people living normal lives. Examples include managing one’s relationships so that they are healthy and functional; surviving disabilities, coping with grief, loss, self-esteem issues, and raising or caring for a sick family remember or a sick child. Access to health care alone is not enough to cope with the stress people face on a daily basis. Such a fact is often missing in most developing populations in the world. For example, in some places in the Middle East and among people living in developing societies, some tend to think that a stable and healthy lifestyle is impossible to achieve. However, there is increasing evidence establishing the effectiveness of counselling and psychotherapy on reducing levels of conflicts and damaging stress chemicals in our brain, which in return lead to successful coping methods and healthy living. Recently, more people are seeking better and healthy lifestyles and seeking psychological advice to cope with conflicts they normally face. These conflicts often make it hard for us to manage our lives and achieve our goals.
The goal of Family, Marital, Child and Adolescents Counselling is to help attain insight into the repressed conflicts which are the source of the difficulty. Through professional psychiatric evaluation, psychological counselling and assessments, individuals can gain more control and a strong sense of emotional support and belonging. This in return will have profound effects on these individuals’ psychological and biological systems. Since successful coping also depends on having a sense of the future; the emotional aspects of a person can make a difference and need professional attention

"Counseling helps you understand who you are. Yes I will go again to Dr. Amari."
" We saw dr amari 3 times for my little girl issues. We could not handle our daughter and did not understand why she acts the way we saw. Dr. Amari saved my family. We did not have full fee and she was kind enough to give reduction of fee to continue coming and not stop. She has a very big heart. When my daughter grow up I wish she can help people like her.”
" counseling is good especially with strong doctor. Dr. Amari very serious and passionate about what she do. Talking to her is so easy. Sometimes session finishes and I still talk to her. I strongly recommend her.
