Relationship Counselling

Looking for help for your relationship?

Relationship counselling works most of the time, because most of the times couples in counselling want to improve things. But there is more to it than talking about issues. So, here are some things to consider before starting relationship counselling.

1. Are you reading the same book?

You and your partner may not be on the same page about things. But are you both reading the same book? In other words, are you both willing to try and improve your relationship, so it feels more fulfulling?

2. Is safety an issue?

If you are looking for counselling because your relationship is unsafe, please call a domestic violence support service. Click here for a list of services.

3. Can you commit?

Counselling works best with a reasonable level of commitment from all parties. I usually suggest fortnightly or weekly sessions, tapering to monthly as things improve. 

4. What makes me an expert on your relationship?

Nothing. I am not an expert on your relationship. My role is to help you listen to yourselves, stay curious about your experience, avoid unhelpful patterns, and discover more capacity for romance, attunement, self-awareness and commitment.
