The M-Solution Consulting International (MSCI), a marital counselling outfit, is set to graduate 15 trained and certified marriage counsellors who participated in the maiden edition of its “Training the Trainers” programme.
The highly anticipated event is billed for Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at the institute’s head office in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.
Professor (Mrs) Mopelola Omoegun from the Department of Educational Foundations, University of Lagos and Commander Mikdad Gidado, Director, Islamic Affairs of the Nigerian Navy are the invited Special Guests at the event, which is slated for 12 noon (no African time).
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Muslim News, one of the facilitators, with over 20 years of marital counseling experience, Mr. Ogunmuyiwa Olagoke said the 15 graduating marriage counsellors are now certified to handle different marital issues after going through six weeks intensive training of both theory and practicum in Basics of Marriage Counselling.
Mr Ogunmuyiwa said there are only a few trained professional marriage counsellors to curb and manage different cases of challenges facing many marriages in the society.
“It therefore becomes pertinent for us, through this institution, to train more people towards becoming marriage counsellors. It is our strong belief that the first set of graduates will make us proud,” he said.
Some of the graduating counsellors who expressed their happiness to be certified noted that the task ahead of them is huge and as such, they are at their best to proffer solutions to marital crises.
Don’t die in silence – Mr Ayorinde
Mr Ayorinde AbdulGhaniyy said, at the end of the training, that the society should expect the best from them.
“We are here to provide solutions on how to manage, marital issues. The society should expect better service from us. My advice to people is that they should not die in silence. Marriage is made up of issues, understanding and coping with ourselves. We have been trained on the cores of counselling, couple counselling and issues that arise, causes, solutions and how to manage them.”
