What is family counselling?
Family counselling is talking therapy services provided by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland. The Centre offers professional guidance to couples and families who experience challenges in family life or who are in crisis due to a difficult life event.
We specialize in couples counselling and relationship issues, but also individuals are welcome. The therapists and the secretary are bound by professional secrecy and the counselling sessions are strictly confidential.
The visits are free of charge for the clients. The local parishes pay for the services. You do not have to be a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church or be a Christian to use these services.
The areas that we serve: Vaasa, Vähäkyrö, Mustasaari, Laihia and neighboring areas on the coast.
