At Transforming Life Christian Counselling Inc, we offer a wide range of counselling services.
Grief and Loss Counselling
Most of us will be subjected to ‘loss’ at some point in our lives. The physiological reaction of grief accompanies any form of loss. Bereavement is a type of grief that comes from the death of a loved one.
Grief and bereavement encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger. The process of adjusting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one individual to another. It often depends on a person’s relationship, beliefs, and background to what was lost.
What we Do at TLCC
Grief counselling is done with the purpose of helping individuals work through the thoughts, feelings, and memories associated with the loss of a loved one. Although grieving can be a result of other types of loss as well, for example, loss of goals, and relationships, the focus of grief counselling is generally towards positive adjustment following loss after the death or departure of a loved one.
For some individuals, grieving may initially be so extreme that psychological and physical symptoms may be experienced, while others might not appear to have any symptoms whatsoever, similar to the numbness described earlier. Activities of daily living may appear overwhelming to a person who has experienced a loss. In these cases, grief counselling may be directed toward specific coping skills to help the individual resume some normalcy in his daily routine. For instance, if sleep patterns are disturbed, grief counselling may comprise of consultation with the individual’s physician to come up with temporary strategies to improve sleep pattern.
Stress in life is inevitable. However, how we cope with stress can promote well-being and adjustment to life’s daily challenges. AT TLCC we will help you analyze the impacts of stress by examining ways in which we respond to life. Coping strategies that are emotion-focused prepare us for facing life challenges that will drain our system.
What we Do at TLCC
I believe in Jesus’ teachings, instructions and examples that is recorded in the holy scriptures (see Matt 5:1-12). Turning to Scripture for guidance from our great, all-wise God who is the world’s greatest expert on how to handle stress and anger. The world does this in its approach to these issues, and it shouldn’t surprise us, but the worrisome element is that many Christians are not aware that the Bible contains the most authoritative, valuable, and trustworthy information about how to handle ungodly anger and stress. Confess your sins and ask God and others you have sinned against for their forgiveness, and seek the help of God to change and put the principles of this book into practice in your life. You don’t have to be destroyed and overcome by ungodly anger or stress. With God’s grace, you can be an over comer.
Anxiety by itself is not an illness or disease but turns into disorder when anxiety interferes with a normal lifestyle. Anxiety disorders persist only because the underlying elements that cause them aren’t properly acknowledged. Identifying and addressing these underlying factors is the most effective way to treat anxiety disorder.
What we Do at TLCC
Emotions greatly impact how we live our lives. They are a gift from God, provided to help us enjoy life and relate to those around us, but how we express them determines whether they are detrimental or beneficial. Either we control them, or they control us.
As multifaceted and complex as anxiety is, it is still something we can define and therefore, manipulate, through tools such as medication and cognitive restructuring through counselling.
Recovery starts with the shift of a perspective and the understanding of the realization that God is totally and completely in control to silence this spirit and poke holes in the lens of anxiety that is trying to blind and disorient us. We can learn to subdue anxiety’s effect on our bodies and minds. With God’s help and through the support of family and friends, we can gain mastery over this debilitating issue. We can heal from past and current hurt, and strip away fear and lies. Prayer and encouragement are invaluable weapons! The evil that we observe, sense, and experience daily is miniscule and dwarfed in comparison to Gods unexplainable, unmeasurable, and perfect Love.
Contrary to the occasional bout of feeling sad, depression has an impact on your daily life, making it difficult for you to find fulfillment in daily activities. Living with depression can be unbelievably difficult, for both those suffering and those around them. This is why most people tend to delay seeking help for it.
What we Do at TLCC
The Bible gives many instances of people experiencing darkness, depression and even frustration with God. He isn’t infuriated by honest words – He considers them holy. God wants our relationships to be authentic with Him. His mercy rules even in our brokenness.
He can handle our frustrations, doubts, failures and darkest moments because He is a remarkably gracious God. He loves us through all of it since that is purely who He is. Eventually, God will always use us to bring hope to others who are aching, because we’ve been where they are and managed to get to the other side. Hope means the most when it comes, stumbling out of the dark places.
The goal behind anger management is to help a person navigate anger. It reduces the physical and emotional arousal that anger can cause. It is generally impossible to avoid all settings and people that incite anger. But an individual may learn to control reactions and respond in a socially appropriate way. The support of a mental health expert may be helpful in this process.
What we Do at TLCC
In their ignorance, an angry person does not realize that their anger is against God. They do not want God over, and above them, standing in judgment of God, instead. An angry person chooses to function in a parallel universe and decides that God should leave them alone. To conceive management of your anger issues, you must look towards Jesus Christ, the one who shatters the self-generated madness. When you look to Jesus, you see the Creator, King, Savior, and Redeemer who is to be revered. You see Jesus as the one who had true self-giving humanness and seeks to take refuge in him
Relationships/ Marriage Counseling
Deciding to go to relationship counselling can be tough. For people who have a troubled relationship, however, seeking help is more fruitful than ignoring your problems or wishing they get better on their own. Sometimes admitting the relationship needs help is the toughest part. Most individuals find the experience to be empowering and insightful.
What we do at TLCC

The pressure to continuously deliver results causes leaders to ignore things that don’t lead directly to them. Because executives are talented achievers, they tend to rise on their abilities but bump against the ceiling of those abilities as they move up in the company. Our powerful program offers practical perceptions to help you maximize your potential every single day of the year.

The Bible is bursting with parables about how to live a healthy life involving God. It also entails how the evil attempts to snatch victory from Christians. Addiction counselling is essential to help Christians begin mending their relationship with God.
“For God who said: ‘Let there be light in the darkness,’ has caused this light to shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.”
- 1 Corinthians 4:6 in the Life Recovery Bible
Even the smallest amount of light disperses darkness. Addiction likes to be bounded by darkness, so Christians turn away from God when they are vigorously using alcohol and drugs. Jesus would never turn his back on us; He is simply waiting for us to return to Him.
in all its forms, domestic abuse represents an uncivilized departure from how Scripture portrays biblical marriage, including the example of self-sacrificial love demonstrated for the church by Jesus.
Abusers often find ways to hurt the person as a whole. They shred the sense of self-worth of their victim, violate their bodies and crush their wills; The effects are catastrophic and widespread—including emotional, social, physical, psychological, and spiritual damage. If left unattended, these effects will be ongoing, no matter how long ago the abuse occurred. This is why it is important to deal with them honestly.
