Relationship, couples & marriage counselling, Geelong

“The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives.” Esther Perel

Relationships form the foundation on which we build our lives. As inherently social creatures who seek connection and understanding from the people in our lives, we thrive on relationships, so when they suffer, so do we. Healthy relationships foster love, trust, intimacy and support. Unhealthy or broken relationships can be toxic, stressful, create a lack of emotional safety and breed resentment. Even the healthiest of relationships go through difficult times.

When the relationships in our lives are strained, the quality of our life is negatively affected. Relationship counselling can help with working through many problems that arise in relationships of any kind, whether it be married couples, new couples, same-sex partners, business partners, friends, or any other important relationships. The longer that you wait to get help, the more entrenched negative patterns become.

  • Pre-marital counselling
  • Becoming a blended family
  • Conflict resolution
  • Identifying and resolving unhealthy patterns
  • Improving communication
  • Marital discord
  • Broken trust
