Corlia Erwee, Registered Counsellor & Mediator at Aquila
I believe that people can overcome difficult circumstances. We never, ever have to stay where we are. My life story is a testimony of restoration and healing. Sometimes we just need someone to come alongside of us to help us see the open doors and realise that our mountains are not that big. I also believe in a systemic approach. We are made up of our past and our present, we are body soul and spirit and we find ourselves in living breathing systems – families, marriages, friendship circles and workplaces. All of these influence our thinking and our believing. This is where a second pair of eyes – that of the counselor – can be so helpful. Counseling is not fixing. Counseling is helping a client dig deep into their own set of resources to find their own solutions.
The discussion is centered around the importance of communication, acceptance, and a shared vision for the future, emphasizing that it's possible to create a thriving family unit despite a divorce.
The talk on raising boys vs. girls emphasizes the importance of understanding and embracing differences in parenting styles for each gender. The focus is on practical tips and strategies for parents to best support their children's growth and development.
