Relationship and Marriage Counselling
You would fix the roof of your house if you needed to.
Similarly, it is wise to invest in the emotional well-being of those who live under that roof.
We specialise in relationship therapy and marriage counselling. Come to us if you:
- are dealing with conflict with your partner
- have problems with children or relatives
- or someone is having an affair
- or your partner feel misunderstood
- are angry or have an angry partner
- are worried you might break up
- are needing support through a break-up.
Two of our psychologists, Rachel and Jenny, have trained in Emotion-Focussed Couples Therapy (EFCT) and also in the Gottman Method. Both hold Level 2 qualifications in relationship counselling from the renowned Gottman Institute.
Arguing never transforms conflict. Couples counselling can.

Having an unsatisfactory relationship with your mother is deeply disappointing. You cannot change her, but you can change how you react to her. It takes some work but it is worthwhile. You can have a peaceful relationship with your mother.
If you have a fear of flying, look at the statistics here that outline your chance of dying in an air crash. You may feel reassured. If you don’t, you have control issues, based on a fear of death, and you need to learn to surrender.
Many people have a fear of flying. Some feel claustrophobic, some feel out of control and quite a few suffer from both. Our approach may seem counter-intuitive, but when clients come to us with a fear of flying, We often take them into the fear. In many years of...
How realistic is family togetherness at Christmas? How many of us realise the dream and have loving, positive interactions with our relatives without any tension or discord? And how many of us have all the important members of our family present? Christmas can bring grief, sadness, estrangement and conflicts.
Overspending at Christmas can turn a good time into a stressful time once all the celebrations are over. Emotionally healthy people do not overspend. They work out what they can afford and stick to it. They are over creative in their gift giving. Lack of money can actually drive creativity.
Alcohol addiction is far too common. Alcohol relaxes our tense muscles and helps us forget our problems. It’s easy to see why it is so addictive. But it also damages our bodies and kills off our brain cells. If we really want to avoid discomfort, especially in the long term, we will value our health.
How we receive gifts can reveal some of our innermost feelings about our self worth. Some people have to reciprocate. Some do not. Some accept graciously and some are critical of the gift. How do people with high self worth respond?
Over the last two years I’ve been dating different guys. None of them felt right. Then I met the one who did. There was a real spark between us and I never doubted for a minute that he wouldn’t call when he said he would. He wasn’t one of those smooth operators, in...
I noticed some men leave a long-term relationship for a younger woman. It seems so wrong. What do you think? Imagine you have devoted the last twenty years to raising your family and you are looking forward to finally spending some quality time with your husband....
District Court Judge, Ian Wylie, in a case of domestic violence, handed down a controversial decision. In doing so, he reminded us of the futility of making a virtue of victimhood. The judge reduced the compensation awarded to a woman who lost her eye when her defacto...
We think we influence our children by what we tell them. Of course, this is important. But we influence our children much more by how we say what we say, by what we don’t say, and, most importantly, by what we actually do. In effect, we are communicating to our children every moment of the day, not just when we sit down with them to have a deep and meaningful.
Jealousy is one of the most difficult emotions to live with, whether you are the one who is jealous or the target of the jealousy. A jealous person harbours a deep inner insecurity. Digging this out and resolving it is possible but only if the jealous person is willing to look deeply inside him or herself.
