I’m in crisis NOW?
If you are worried about your safety and feel at risk of harming yourself please access help immediately.
When a crisis happens.
A crisis is something that happens out of the ordinary which causes physical and /or emotional shock. A person’s thoughts, feelings, values, habits and even behavior may change, temporarily or permanently.
People are often surprised by how much they are affected. A crisis may affect not only people directly and indirectly involved, but also those close to them – family, friends, and colleagues.
Every time I leave counsellor Afia’s soothing office, I am glowing with gratitude. I always remind myself of how lucky to have such a wonderful person/ resource in our midst. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to find peace and joy in their relationship with self and others.
I can’t say enough good things about the body scan and energy exercises. I am using these tools all the time, both at work and in my personal life. Counsellor Rita more blessing.
-David., Marketing Manager
I have been able to calm the inner turmoil and find strength to keep moving forward in a very difficult time in my life. You have helped me to learn that it is the negative and the positive experiences in life that shape the person that I am and that I don’t need to be afraid or ashamed of the negative. I am able to confront the negative self-talk and work through to a place of strength. I really appreciate your ability to listen deeply and to help me control the whirlwind that has been going through my mind throughout this trying time in my life. It is truly a lifeline.
After our first session I found my nearly overwhelming inner turmoil reduced to a manageable level. Since then, I’ve found myself more able to say what I’m thinking, and I’m not self-censoring internally any more. For probably the first time ever, I feel like I’m growing as a person, and although it’s sometimes overwhelming and scary, I feel a sense of confidence and anticipation that makes it all worth it.
I am becoming more confident in my own skin, happier about the decisions I make, more positive about the future and my boundaries are stronger.

Thank You, Counsellor Afia. I really appreciated your gentle, grounded process which provided me with peace of mind, clarity and a new perspective on an issue that was troubling me. I was left with a feeling of energy and love.
-Johnson O, Akosombo
You are the first professional with whom I have developed the comfort level to “be myself”. You provide a safe, non-judgmental place for me to explore my ongoing feelings and thoughts. Thank you for that.
-Name Withheld, Lawyer, Tema
I noticed that I was really comfortable around you…I didn’t feel judged at all, and really felt like you knew what you were talking about. This enabled me to open up and be more honest than I ever had before with anyone else.
-S. P., Radio Host, (station withheld)
Simply put, Counsellor Afia has helped me. Her phone therapy option allowed me to receive counselling when I might not have otherwise. Counsellor Afia has a knack for knowing when to ask the right questions and an ability to uncover issues in a safe and comfortable way. I would recommend her to anyone who need some support.
