Couples Counselling

A fresh perspective, skills and knowledge 

Are you feeling stuck, at a crossroads?


Confused about what to try next?


Feeling tired going over the same issues in the same way?


Finding it hard to communicate and be understood?


Struggling to manage conflict effectively?


Wondering how to move forward so you can enjoy each other again?



Better Skills

Having a secure, connected, loving relationship doesn’t happen simply by trying harder. If that was the case you’d probably by really happy already.  For a successful relationship you need the right knowledge and skills to address the inevitable issues that come up in any relationship. 

Unfortunately most of us were not taught the relational skills we need before we dived into dating, living together and marriage. Yet, somehow we expect we should just know what to do if we are with the “right” person.  It’s just not a realistic expectation. Love alone is not enough.  We need help to learn how to effectively navigate communication, conflict and connection.

Whether you are looking to deepen the love you have, seeking to revitalise love that has faded, or wondering whether to move on, we can provide you with the skills,  clarity and confidence to move forward into a better future.


Why Couples Counselling?

Everyone deserves the happiness that comes from secure, healthy, deeply connected relationships

Relationship experts agree, secure, healthy relationships require self-awareness, dedicated attention, and key relational skills.  People in successful relationships actively work on the qualities and skills they need to ensure a loving, connected relationship especially during challenging communication and conflict.  Our couples counselling aims to provide you with those skills.  

Our counselling approach is informed by attachment theory, relational theory and neuroscience, to guide you to create a vision for your relationship and provide you with the crucial relational tools to deepen love, revitalise love or move on from love with dignity.
