Counseling Center

Welcome to REALIS Christian

counseling center

From the day REALIS Christian Center opened its doors, hundreds of people were able to receive help. Many clients from the guided support groups ask for individual counseling as well. Counseling, both Christian and secular, is extremely underdeveloped in Ukraine, and, in some ways, we are pioneers in this field. One statistic that we are especially excited about is that 80% of our new clients heard about us from previous clients.

Types of counseling:

  • individual counseling

  • marriage and family counseling

  • premarital counseling

  • group counseling

What we offer: 

  • Counseling sessions are 50-minutes in length (groups are 2 – 2.5 hours)

  • The Center is open 7 days a week

  • Sessions are held in a comfortable office

  • Everything that is said during the sessions remains confidential

  • If necessary, we can refer clients to a psychiatrist

  • Meetings are held in a cozy office in Kiev

"It takes an average of 15-20 sessions for a woman who is being physically abused at home to realize what is happening. She starts calling things by their name. She recognizes her poor choices and learns to react differently to her husband. She becomes capable of making healthy decisions."
