Life Enhancement

As human beings, we are designed to live happy lives. And we are designed to actualize becoming better beings. Therefore, it is natural that we always look to better ourselves.

On this path, we can stumble and fall, we can cheer with great achievements. Whichever way, we sometimes need a pat on the shoulder to move on, a reflection on our distracted path, or just someone to help with clarity. This is what the Companions offer.

Parent as Coach

Oh dear! How to deal with my teenage son!
I hope I can better support my children’s development!
by a mother with two kids

While we are happy to be parents, parenting is indeed a daunting task – not to mention the very competitive schooling that children are having in Hong Kong or children who have some special education needs. When children become teenagers, parenting is even more challenging: simply dealing with everyday conflicts with teenage children can be exhausting already.

Some parents have better luck that their children are easier to “manage”, but they may also hope that they can provide better support for their children’s development, not just monetary, but understanding, nurturance and guidance. With thoughtful coaching, their children can become more resilient, have secure attachment, develop positive relationships, and eventually lead a flourishing and meaningful life.

So parents, whether your children have special education needs or not, you may want to equip yourself better to face these parenting challenges through working with experienced coaches who can understand your concerns and wishes, and more importantly, who have effective means to facilitate your parenting.

Pre-marital Counselling

Am I finding THE ONE?
I want to know how compatible we are.
by a pre-marital couple

When people decide to get married, some people consider it as an item on a must-do list while others try to fulfill the expectations of others, be it their parents or partner.  What is the reason for you and your partner to get married?  With the use of personalized assessment, various aspects such as relationship dynamics, communication style, financial management, and spiritual belief, etc., are covered.  The strengths and growth areas will be discussed with the facilitation of an experienced counsellor.  The understanding of the couple’s differences would give you more confidence and preparation when entering into marriage.

What makes the couple compatible and know that they are finding the right partner for their life?  By understanding the different values, communication styles and interaction patterns of the couple, they are able to see beyond the external behaviour of their partner to have more understanding of each other’s vulnerable feelings and good intention behind the scene.  With the facilitation of an experienced counsellor, more sensitive topics can be shared in a non-judgmental environment to foster positive communication and conflict resolution.  This is crucial for a healthy and loving long-term relationship.

Long term relationship enhancement

Find a person, get married, have children, then what?
I want my married life to be more enjoyable!
by a person who is planning for future

Love desires a commitment to get married.  However, it takes more than love to have a long-term intimate relationship.  For a relationship to grow, it is like growing plants which needs water, sunlight and nutrients on an on-going basis.  When people are going through different life stages, different challenges arise.  Other than knowing the communication techniques, it is important to be reminded how the couple were attracted in the first place.  With the facilitation of experienced relationship coach, the couple would grasp a better understanding of their values, interaction pattern and their unique communication style for them to walk their paths hand-in-hand with love and commitment.

“My spouse used to cuddle me whenever he saw me, but he does not do that anymore.” “My partner used to giggle or laugh joyfully at my jokes, but she just rolls her eyes when I joke with her now.” What has happened?  Other than feeling secure in a relationship, having common interests and emotional connection are important in a long-term relationship.  By facilitating the couple to share their values and unique needs, the experienced relationship coach enables the couple to have empathic understanding of their partner’s behaviours and learn how to be intimate in different situations, even in the bedroom.

“What can I do as second life other than taking yoga lessons and golfing 5 times a week?”
by a person who will retire soon

When we google “retirement”, we will find images of smiley silver-haired individuals or couples enjoying life, taking relaxed holidays, or experiencing adventures that the youngsters envy. Even ads exemplify retirement life as endless enjoyment and freedom.

Yes, this can be what a lot of retirees look for. However, few people truly attain that fully. Regardless of how planned your retirement may be, physical change of status or habit of your daily life does pose challenges. The reality sometimes can be different from how you had imagined it. Therefore often times, a stress sets in without you consciously knowing it.

Some may find the hours feel longer than they anticipated a day. They may gradually feel bored about the lack of activities to kill time. There will be an obvious shrink in the friendship circle, eroding one’s sense of importance, or developing thoughts of uselessness. If you are being forced to retire, the sudden drop in recognition and status will take some time to digest. Anxiety and depression are common in this group.

Some retirees feel a lost in direction of the next perhaps 20-30 years, desperate or eager to seek a meaningful second life. Some may begin to divert their thoughts to worrying about health and benefits and resources. Above all, most will simply experience communication breakdown with family as their time spent together expand.

As our life circle sometimes decrease with age, and our ability or energy to digest issues lowered, stress at this stage can be double harmful. Whichever group you belong to, it is important you look after your psychological health. A mature counsellor will be helpful to you at this juncture.

Relocation and migration can be more stressful than the plan in our head
by a person who will move to another country

Relocation and migration are one of life’s most stressful events. Hong Kong as an international city, attracts individuals from all over the globe. Many plan to stay for a short period as a step on career development. Some find themselves making HK their “home away from home”. Regardless of where “home” is, adjusting and adapting to a new culture, relationships (workplace, friendship), often with minimal social support from back home, can be very challenging.

Aside to dealing with the basic physical resettlement of finding a place to live, schools for children, health and other services, meeting and making new friends.

It can be challenging for couples when the one who prompted the move is absorbed with the challenges of the new workplace and culture. The spouse on the other hand, may also be occupied with finding a new job, perhaps dealing with professional accreditation issues, children adapting to new schooling environment. Pre-existing personal, familial and relationship issues prior to the move often get exacerbated with stressors associated with relocation and migration.
