No. A counsellor is a trained professional who is able to assist you and your family during times of transition involving difficult issues. Often, mental health is lower on the priority list when dealing with conflict. I recommend you review your benefits package and contact a local counsellor to discuss their services. Most Employee Assistance Plans (EAP) or Employee Health Benefit packages have an allocation for counselling and Mental Health. The more resources you have, the better off you will be. Counsellors are able to discuss your situation and provide advice and techniques you and your family can employ to work though your situation.
