Dolly and Associates is a professional organization, which has combined experiences in providing services for both the Private and Public Sectors. A number of benefits are available from participating in psychotherapy. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Therapy can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. Many people find therapy to be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, and the hassles of daily life. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Through our array of service offerings, we can help you meet those challenges
Individual therapy or psychotherapy involves working on a one-on-one basis with a therapist to plan and to create positive changes in your life. Often it is helpful just to know that someone will listen and understand. Therapy can provide a fresh perspective on your concerns and point you in the direction of a solution. Therapy can empower you in your personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns and transitions and daily life challenges.
Relationship Counseling services are designed to help you gain insight into your relationship, resolve conflict and improve relationship satisfaction. Through relationship counselling, partners learn to understand and meet each other’s need, learn tools to negotiate differences, problem solve and work through conflict. While relationship counselling can resolve a problem, it can also be an asset in a healthy relationship to support partners through life transitions or during times of increased stress.
When a person experiences an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds their ability to cope they are often experiencing trauma. At these times, persons typically experience a range of emotions such as anxiety, anger, depression, uncertainty and feelings of loss. Trauma Management and resolution services help individuals to address, cope with and/or resolve these feelings.
These services are geared towards assisting individuals, teams and other work groups and organizations to identify and manage stress optimally. Stress is a part of life. When not managed well, stress becomes distress and is often debilitating to individual wellbeing. We help individuals understand the source of their distress and their stressors so that they develop the tools and strategies to enhance their functionality.
Family Therapy services are geared towards creating harmony in your home. Family relationships are vital to the well-being of individuals. When families can respond to each other’s emotional needs, respect differences, improve communication and work through difficult feelings families become stronger. Our counsellors work with your family so that your family is empowered to be at its best.
Crisis Management services are geared towards to assist in identifying a crisis, planning a response to the crisis, as well as confronting and resolving the crisis. Crisis intervention is focused on minimizing the stress of the event, providing emotional support and improving the individual’s coping strategies in the here and now.

Employee Assistance Program
An Employee Assistance Programme is a Confidential Service which provides assistance to employees in dealing with personal and work related issues, which may affect their job performance or well-being. Dolly and Associates Limited assists organizations in developing and implementing EAPs through provision of services such as assisting in policy formulation, orientation and training of employees and supervisors/managers, individual and family counselling and supervisory/managerial consultations. An important preventative function of our EAP work is doing psycho-educational programmes that assist employees in understanding and planning for common everyday life challenges.
School Based Programs
Ultimately, the goal of school based programmes is to create healthy environments for learning. At Dolly and Associates we do this by partnering with schools in developing prevention and intervention strategies that promote academic and life success for all of the students. We also work with teaching and administrative staff to support them in creating healthy working environments to meet the school’s educational mandate.
Community Based Programs
Community Based Services are implemented in the community to assist in the development of skills and techniques to facilitate behavioural change to enhance the lives of members of the community.
Community Based Services are developed to provide skills and techniques to facilitate behavioural change at individual and at community levels. These programmes are implemented in the community and are targeted to age and gender specific and mixed groups. We annually offer camps and workshops by providing services that are designed to assist disadvantaged youth and teens. We actively seek out ways to educate our community on mental health and relationship topics and would love to speak for your community group.
Dolly and Associates recognizes that trauma can have an organizational impact and provides debriefing for incidents that directly impact employees. This category of service is called Critical Incidence Services Debriefing (CISD).
Dolly and Associates facilitates a range of programmes and workshops that support the health and wellbeing of indivudals, groups and organizations. We are well known for the use of participatory and highly interactive methodologies in addressing individual, team and organizational concerns and in achieving desired outcomes. Programmes are tailored to meet the specific needs of the organization or group.
Psychometric Testing Services
Psychometric tests are powerful and versatile assessment tools used to provide information to address issues such as educational and developmental concerns and emotional functioning. Educational testing includes diagnostic tests that give an idea of intelligence and achievement potentials. Psychological evaluations address social and emotional functioning that includes exploring your interests, values and motivations. Personality tests also analyse your emotions, behaviours and relationships in a variety of situations. Dolly and Associates covers a wide range of tests to meet individual needs.
