What You Can Expect from Couples Counselling

Relationships are hard work. You try so hard to understand and meet each other's needs but it still feels like its not enough. When you come to couples counselling you can expect us to remain a neutral third party invested in the health of your relationship. We will give each member an equal opportunity to share their perspective and experience. We'll help you learn to approach conflict respectfully and fairly, to understand each other's unique emotional needs and to respond effectively to each other's wounds. We'll help you create your own unique lovemap to a satisfying relationship that is grounded in friendship, growing in trust and guarded by mutual respect. 

We can help! 

Couples seek counselling and therapy for a number of reasons. These may include:

  • Communication concerns

  • Conflicts about money, household responsibilities or parenting

  • Coping with life transitions

  • Protecting the relationship from the interference of others

  • Differences in sexual desire or sex drive

  • Infidelity

  • Coparenting concerns

  • Negotiating a separation 

LGBTQ+ Couples Counselling

It's likely that you didn't have any role modelling of healthy queer relationships in your family of origin. It's also likely that the relationships you were surrounded by were heavily saturated in outdated gender norms that aren't a fit for you, your relationship or your values. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and non-binary people experience unique challenges in their relationships and need unique solutions. We are pleased to have a number of counsellors who are members of the queer community and look forward to helping you achieve the loving relationship you've always deserved. 

   

Non-monogamous Couples Counselling

We understand that not all intimate relationships are monogamous and affirm all forms of consensual non-monogamy. We are honoured to help couples that consist of three or more members communicate their boundaries, their expectations, their hopes and their needs. 

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
