At Rapha Counselling Concepts, our ultimate goal is to see that young people lead healthy and happy lives, and enjoy a smooth transition into productive and responsible adulthood. Thankfully, we are glad to announce that over the years, we have recorded outstanding success in this regard. Through our psychotherapy services, we have helped countless number of young people who suffered from trauma due to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, bereavement and others, to heal and recover from trauma / Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

We have helped many others to cope with and recover from other mental health conditions such as depression, phobias, social anxiety and problem gambling.
We have helped many young people to unlearn problematic masturbation and compulsive viewing of pornography.
We have also helped children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and those with bullying behaviour
We have ‘seen ‘ children who were labelled with lie telling, pilfering and laziness become sources of pride to their parents after our experts took them through sessions of psychotherapy.
We have also provided intervention for several children who experienced underachievement, and we saw them improve their academic performances and come tops in their classes after their encounters with our educational psychologists and counsellors.
Through our personality enhancement and personal growth package, which we dispense through our school guidance and counselling services, in over 100 schools within and outside Lagos, we have helped thousands of young people to enhance their personalities.
Since 2003, we have provided career guidance and counselling for young people some of whom we have mentored through secondary and tertiary education levels, who are now professionals in their chosen fields and contributing their quota to societal development.
- Over the last 17 years, we have used our parenting counselling services and publication platforms to strengthen parenting skills among the parents and guardians of our young clients while enhancing intimate parent-child relationship. To further push our goal of strengthening parenting skills, Rapha Counselling Concepts, on the 21st of March, 2021, launched a radio talk show on parenting, known as ” Parents and Youngsters”. The show discusses parenting and how it influences child’s behaviour, personality and self-actualisation. “Parents and Youngsters” is aired on ” Voice Radio” every Sunday at 2:00pm-3:00pm WAT, and it is presented by Rapha Counselling Concept’s founder and lead therapist, Dr. Rosemary Oshiomah Ogedengbe with her cohost, Miss Naomi Ododo Oshiomah. You can benefit from this programme on www. thevoiceradio.com.ng.
- We have equipped over 500 teachers with classroom child handling skills, so that they would be more effective and efficient not only in terms of impacting knowledge but also in terms of child care and child protection within the school.
- Through our comprehensive sexuality education guidance services which we dispense through schools and religious settings, we have equipped over 4,500 young people with age appropriate information about their sexual development and related challenges, to enable them make informed and beneficial choices about their sexuality and avoid sexual abuse.
