Couples Counselling

We appreciate that modern day living can be very stressful, resulting in difficulties arising in our key relationships. Sometimes these difficulties can become repetitive & couples can become stuck in a pattern of communication & interaction style that is unhelpful or counter-productive. Couples counselling can help couples to identify these relational patterns of interaction that underlie or exacerbate difficulties & explore ways to respond differently.

Our clinicians provide a warm, supportive and neutral space to explore relationship difficulties from. They adopt a non-judgmental, optimistic and encouraging stance, enabling them to help couples to identify their strengths and identify proactive solutions and techniques to move forward.. 


The initial sessions typically focus on an assessment and formulation of the predisposing and precipitating factors that may have contributed to the development of difficulties, as well as the perpetuating factors that may be maintaining difficulties once present. This assessment and formulation then underpins the intervention sessions, which may include some of the following aspects:
