Most of us are looking for a fulfilling and healthy relationship with that someone special. A true team where each of you grow together thanks to the love and support you provide one another.

A healthy relationship takes practice and a willingness to be open and vulnerable, this takes skill that can often be difficult and uncomfortable. The beauty of couples counselling is that you have a supportive space with an experienced counsellor to be open, learning how to best work together.

 

Who Is This For?

Couples counselling is extremely helpful if you are a couple who are:

  • wanting to strengthen your emotional bond
  • needing help navigating disagreements or are feeling caught in unhealthy patterns
  • wanting to improve your communication
  • going through major life transitions like marriage or parenthood
  • wanting to deepen intimacy to understand each other better
  • wanting to work on trust
  • looking to create positive patterns of behaviour
  • seeking to enhance the overall health and satisfaction of your relationship

Relationship counselling provides you and your partner with tools and strategies to address the challenges you are facing, helping you to move forward. Having a counsellor you feel you can trust to help you and being willing to put in the effort to work through the challenges and solutions will determine how successful counselling is for you. To get the full benefits of relationship counselling it is important that you and your partner are open to working together.

Counselling can be a confronting process and it's important each individual has the option to choose if they would like to attend or not. If you've decided you would like to work on your relationship through counselling but your partner is not ready we recommend you book an initial appointment for yourself to discuss options to help you get to where you want to be.

Not every relationship lasts forever and finding the right way to end things can sometimes be challenging. If you and your partner have decided to end your relationship our experienced relationship counsellors can support you to do this respectfully.

Trust is important to build and maintain in the relationship and can be a goal you both work towards in counselling.
