About

About
 
     My name is Graham Abley ...
 

I am a Christian Individual/Family Counselor. 
I was born near, (then grew up in) Liverpool,
England.  In 1977, I moved to the USA; a short
time after I arrived in the States, I met Bonise,
who became my wife the following year.  God
blessed us with one child, a daughter--who is
now married.  She and her husband have given
us
four precious grandchildren--three boys and
one girl.

We are abundantly blessed!

 

In 1992, I found out I was losing my eyesight to complicated glaucoma.  Shortly thereafter, I spent five
months at the Criss Cole Rehab Center for the Blind, in Austin, Texas.  On the advice of my vocational
counselor there (who was aware that I had counseled and was able to help some of the staff and clients
at the Rehab Center), I decided to study toward a degree in the field of counseling.  Using a closed-circuit
TV, reading two words (or less) at a time, I earned my Ph.D. in 1998.  I have been doing counseling as a
ministry since 1994.  Because I am legally blind
(I do have a very small amount of vision), I have a counseling
office in my home.  My office has a private entrance with restroom facilities.

The focus of my counseling ministry is primarily in the following areas:

  • Marriage Enrichment;
  • Troubled Marriages;
  • Divorce Recovery/Adjustment;
  • Pre-Marriage for engaged couples;
  • Anger Management;
  • OCD;
  • Drug and Alcohol Abuse;
  • Parenting / Child-Rearing;
  • Children experiencing situational pain;
  • Teenagers coping with myriad issues;
  • Depression;
  • Bereavement;
  • Crises situations--adults, youth, and children;
  • Individuals hurting from loss—of a relationship, 
    of health, of focus, of purity, of assurance, of resolve …

 

Over the years, God has seen fit to bless my counseling ministry and I have seen a number of marriages
restored, parent/child relationships healed, and individuals--both young and older--whose lives have
been changed for the better.
