Counseling

Counseling takes place when a counselor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress he/she may be experiencing or perhaps his/her dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be 'sent' for counseling. MFPWA offers counseling on Contraception, Sexuality, Family matters, Reproductive Health issues, Menopause, Infertility, Teenage Pregnancy/Abortion, Breast and Cervical Cancer, Sexual Dysfunctions of male (Urinary Inconsistencies) and females and HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections by allowing the user to make an informed choice.
