Safa Counselling Centre is a project by the Sri Lanka Muslim Women’s Conference which is an umbrella organization of many Muslim Women’s Associations. It is a service oriented organization, which strives to assist the community in the way of counselling, awareness programs and pre-marriage workshops.
Safa launched many projects- namely marriage workshops which were to prepare young men and women for marriage. Due to the severe increase of divorce rates in the country, the Safa team, as counsellors felt the need to try to address this issue and help the community. The aim of these workshops is to not merely to minimize the rate of divorce, but to build, and improve and maintain healthy relationships between husbands and wives.
The counsellors at Safa Counselling Centre also help individuals and families to overcome obstacles, heal from emotional distress and achieve personal growth and satisfaction in their lives. We offer self-enhancing workshops, such as: anger management workshops, stress release workshops and Safa also offers marriage counselling, family counselling, parenting, and addiction counselling and stress and anger management services.
