My Passion

The high divorce rate in Northern Nigeria has been something of concern to the founder and this encouraged her to specialize in marital therapy in order to guide young couples to build healthy marriages. As a young bride in 2015 the founder found the marriage institution complicated and sorted a professional marriage counselor who understands the northern culture, all searches yielded no result and it was at that instance she started thinking about becoming one. Later she took the Strengthening Families relationship program and the knowledge of the training was applied to her own home which yield great results this encouraged her to share this knowledge with other young couples to enable them to build healthy marital relationships and attain their full potential as individuals. The Northern Therapist through its services will create an enabling environment for couples to have open and honest conversations, learn the skills of negotiation and compromise, and also assist individuals to achieve good health and well-being and gender equality which are in line with the SDG 3 and 5
