Evidence suggests that addressing a problem early gives couples and families a greater chance of incorporating strategies to help them manage differences and build strong, healthy relationships. Our counsellors are well trained to assist couples, individuals and families experiencing relationship difficulties in a range of ways:

  • We help couples understand relationship dynamics and help them review their expectations of themselves, each other and their relationship.
  • Family counselling helps a range of family units – including extended families, blended families, families of same sex couples, sole parent families and separated families – to understand how to relate to each other and deal with change.
  • Individuals can seek help in looking at how to strengthen their capacity to develop healthy relationships and deal with the grief of loss or change to a relationship
  • Separating or divorcing couples can receive help with dealing with feelings including grief, shock, anger and uncertainty and coming to terms with the changes involved in separating.

Children can also receive specific counselling to understand and respond to other losses or changes in their lives, deal with feelings, worries and hopes about family transitions.

Our counsellors will respect you regardless of culture, religion, age, gender, sexuality or life situation.  They are qualified and committed to work with you to take appropriate responsibility for safe and healthy relationships.  While counselling is partly funded by Government, some fees may apply – please contact us for more information.
