New counselling groups

Two new counselling groups are available to the public: Positive Anger Management for Men, and Couples Clinic

The Upper Island Assessment and Resource Service Society is a not-for-profit employee and family assistance program that has been operating in the Campbell River, Comox Valley, and Port McNeill areas for more than 23 years.

The agency provides employees and families of their member organizations with access to counselling services.

They are now announcing two new counselling groups that are available to the public; Positive Anger Management for Men, and Couples Clinic.

Positive Anger Management for Men looks at how anger is a response that activates when we feel a lack of control over ourselves, our environment or other people.  When left unchecked, it can be a strong emotion that ruins ties with family, friends, and co-workers, and destroys self-esteem.

This five-week course will help men develop more insight into their emotions and the thinking patterns that are creating inappropriate anger in their lives and offer them tools to deal with strong emotions in a much more healthy way.

Next Campbell River group starts on March 22 at 6:30 -8 p.m. Cost is $85 (plus HST).  Call 250-287-2266 for registration details.

The Couples Clinic focuses on communication, connection, and conflict resolution.  Do you and your partner seem to be always arguing about something? Or, perhaps you never argue but feel distant, lonely, more like roommates. Here is an opportunity to change that.

The newly developed six-week Couples Clinic will help you and your partner; understand one another more intimately, meet each other’s needs, learn new skills, and enhance your love, respect, and appreciation for one another. Contact the UIARS for next start date: www.upperislandars.com.
