Counselling


People who have an intellectual disability have a range of issues where assistance and education can result in further development of life skills.
"Many people have personal issues including grief, and relationship issues which can lead to a restriction in life activities and productive relationships"
The aim of the counselling and group work is to reduce some of these issues and increase quality of life.
