Marriage Counseling

I would Like to know if there is anyone here in Peru that has any information on Marriage Counselors. Does not seem to be any in Lima or the surrounding subburbs and if there is I have no way of knowing how to find them. Nor does my wife and she is Peruvian. We have asked friends and what little family she does have and no one seem to have a clue. Most common reply is. "Why would you need one of those?" In any event if someone happens to know where one is or could recommend one that would be great! Preferably one that speaks both Spanish and English. Any help would be fantastic. I am currently working abroad and do so on a rotational basis. I am 28 days overseas and 28 days back in Peru. I am scheduled to return home to Peru on the 25th of February and would like to have some information prior to that so me and my wife can make an appointment the following week.

Thank you

Regards

I'm sure they exist but don't know of any. Any psychiatrist in Lima should be able to give you a referral. People who need marriage counseling but can't afford a specialist do it through their church.

Psycologists also work as marriage counseling.. I think it is a sort of specialization in this area..

Hi,

I recommend you go to http://www.ifasil.com/staff.html
They are experts in marriage/family counseling, I'm sure you will find a bilingual speaking counselor among the staff.

Also, you can call Verónica Gulman, she's also a marriage/family counselor. Her Centre's phone is 368-2974. She's Peruvian, but does speak English.

You can also contact the Centro de Psicoterapia Psicoanalítica, they offer individual and couple's counseling http://www.cppl.org.

These recommended professionals are Psychologists, Psychiatrists don't always provide marriage counseling, it is more common to find Psychologists who do.

Please feel free to PM me if you need any additional info. I am a psychologist, but don't do clinical work. I can surely help you look around.

I hope you find a way to work things out.
Antonella

That's great!
I would try calling on Monday, though. Just to make sure you communicate with them.

All the best,

On Avenida Larco in Miraflores, there's a introduction agency called [mod edit]
If you contact them, they will help you to find a marriage counceller. The manager her name is Sarah and she speaks English.

This is for Antonella. The phone number you gave for Veronica Gulman (368-2974) is not a working number. My wife tried it many different ways and she knows how to dial Peru numbers. But with no luck on this one. Would you happen to have another number for Ms. Gulman. Thank you

I've decided I'm now a great fan of euroman. He always gives utterly bizarre advice that I would recommend everyone avoid putting into practice, but his telling people to go to a mail-order bride agency in order to fix their marriage has officially changed my opinion from disdain to approval.

It's not a mail order bride agency. It's a descent agency that has been running for 10 years.
It will not the first time anyone asks them for this kind of advice.

But your advice to sent people to church to solve their marriage???? That's bizar advice. Yeah, actually it might be a solution, sent them to the confession box and when they come out all problems and sins are forgotten. Good advice.

I have to echo iskndarbey, i went to the website and was horrofied at the idea of sending someone there to find marriage counseling.

The service offers a package deal to provide tours to foreign countries to meet single women packaged with a fiancee visa lawyer service.

They have an office on Avenida Larco. A friend of mine used their service and met someone through them. They are getting married in March.
Ok, they offer tours too to others countries.

Fiancee visa lawyer advice??? Never heard about that. Anybody who's married to an EU citizin is entitled to live and work in Europe without restrictions. A visa will and must always be granted.

A fiancee is not married.

And the lawyer was American...

and the website offers IMBRA disclaimer, as required for any marriage broker.

I wasn't recommending that people go to church, just mentioning what 90% of people in Peru do in this situation. I imagine your parish priest will at least be familiar with the registered professionals in your area as it's something he deals with on a daily basis, although I too would be a little wary of getting relationship advice from someone who believes that divorce is a sin and who has made a lifelong vow of chastity!

Divorce is not a sin. People divorce all the time. It's normal that after some time people get enough of each other divorce.

I think he misunderstood and thought that the OP needed help getting married, like finding a wife. That's what it sounds like to me.

Was sarcasm intended in this response? :? I'm confused.

No sarcasm was intended. I meant it as a compliment. You have read eromans posts with a truly discerning eye and saw what many had not. Too many people are unable to see past their own nose, you seem not one of them.

oh okay :) I wasn't sure. Thank you!

I know that English isn't his first language, and a lot is lost in translation... especially on a message board.

probably cheaper to just hire a good divorce attorney and be done with it, www.mujeresabogadas.com will be fraction of what a shrink charges

I am sorry your marriage is going through difficult times. I can give Dr. Jorge Calderon Marttini the highest recommendation. I have seen him for over 3 years and I am bipolar.
