A CASE FROM THE COUNSELLING SESSIONS: AMANEE
Amanee was looking for advice since her patience was running low. The poverty of her family created a negative atmosphere, and her husband was constantly worried and it affected her and the children a lot. Amanee considered going back to her home country and taking the children with her. The counsellor asked her if she could imagine herself as a single mom in a home country, and how it would be for the children to grow up in a new country? Then the counsellor talked to Amanee about the possibility of completing the language school and start an education in Denmark, that could lead to a job. In that way Amanee would be working to secure the future for the family instead of being a home-staying mom. At first hand Amanee couldn't see this as an possibility. She had exhausted all her teaching at the language school, but the counsellor told her that she could pass the exam by studying on her own. We found Amanee a mentor (network-friend), who supported her during her studying to pass the exam and she help her stay motivated and believe that she could do it. She finished school with high grades. This was the first step. Now the next step is to apply for the wanted study.
