Relationship counselling is a specialised type of therapy that is designed to help individuals in a romantic relationship to resolve conflicts, improve communication and deepen intimacy and connection. We aim to provide you with a safe and supportive space for you to work through your issues and strengthen your relationship.
Whether you are experiencing a crisis or significant challenges in their relationship, counselling can be helpful for couples who want to improve their communication, deepen their connection, and work through any issues or conflicts they may be experiencing in their relationship, as well as addressing the impact of factors such such as addiction, infidelity, mental health issues or where one or both partners have a diagnosis of ADHD/ASD.
Research has shown that relationship counselling can be effective in improving relationship satisfaction and reducing relationship distress. Studies have found that couples who participate in relationship counselling report significant improvements in their communication skills, increased feelings of intimacy and closeness, and a reduction in conflict.
Overall, the effectiveness of relationship counselling depends on a variety of individual factors. If you are considering relationship counselling, it is important to work with a qualified therapist and to approach the process with an open mind and a willingness to actively participate in the process.
If you and your partner(s) need relationship counselling it's important to work with a counsellor who is familiar with the language, concepts and dynamics of non-monogamous relationships and has experience working with clients in similar situations.
We offer specialised relationships counselling for those currently in an ethical non-monogamous (ENM) relationship as well as couples who are just beginning to navigate the complex dynamics and unique challenges off entering into this type of relationship.
Ultimately the goal of relationship counselling for non-monogamous relationships is to improve communication, build trust, and strengthen the relationship. With the right counsellor and a commitment to open and honest communication, non-monogamous relationships can be just as fulfilling and successful as monogamous ones.
Getting married/moving in together
Entering into relationship counselling before married or even just moving in together can help couples prepare for a lifetime of love and commitment. A relationship counsellor can help couples explore important issues like communication, conflict resolution, and shared goals before you move into the next stage of your live together.
This program consists of a pre-questionnaire followed by 2 x hour sessions with a counsellor. Should you require more sessions to explore any specific issues that arise from these sessions these are additional cost.
