Young women's Counselling
Becoming a woman is not a simple task in today’s times. In between social media, body image, and gender stereotypes, young women often struggle with adjusting to their identity in a healthy and positive way.
Dr Azri specialises in counselling young women from 13 years old with issues such as difficulties managing healthy relationships, sexuality, school pressure, home tension to ensure they have all the tools to grow into strong, independant, and resilient young women.
Counselling women is an important calling as women often carry the weight of multiple responsibilities. From pregnancy to parenting, and managing careers amongst household tasks, our sisterhood often faces issues with limited time, resources, and/or support. Dr Azri offers women’s counselling for issues such as life coaching, relationship/separation counselling, family coping, sexuality, and women’s health that aims to foster hope, strength and resilience.
Navigating relationships can be taxing, especially when we experience relationship difficulties. Marriage counselling, also known as couples counselling or relationship counselling is a form of therapy designed to improve communication, negotiations, trust, and/or intimacy between partners. Dr Azri offers marriage counselling designed to develop a deeper connection, problem solve particular issues, and/or experiencing a satisfying level of emotional and physical intimacy.
Sometimes partners are confused as to whether they want to stay married, and/or whether couples counselling is even what they want. For these partners, relationship therapy can actually be quite stressful and counterproductive.
Dr Azri offers Discernment Counselling, a short term therapy that allows partners to work as a couple and individually until they are certain of which path they want to take (Separate or remain together).
Post Separation Counselling
Adjusting to a new life without a long term partner can be extremely traumatic, whether it be through death, affair, or mutual decision. Feeling of loss, betrayal, and definitely fear can surface and managing all these emotions while trying to keep a household, a family, or a career afloat can be difficult.
Dr Azri specialises in assisting individuals in recovering from divorce and separation in a way that leads to a positive new beginning while respecting an important history.

Every session comes with a complete plan from greeting to closing down, and includes illustrations, photocopiable activities, worksheets, games, colouring-in sheets, and reflective content for children to think about their own views on the issue addressed in each section.
The Prenatal Bombshell is a warm and understanding companion guide for parents who have received an adverse prenatal diagnosis.

In sections on pregnancy, labor, and on the death of a child, the author provides a wealth of advice for dealing with the practical, ethical, and emotional issues that can arise in the different stages of these experiences of pregnancy.
