Relationships difficulties can be painful and confusing, negatively affecting the rest of your life.
Very few of us have been taught how to have a good relationship. Most of us are doing the best we know how, but lack the knowledge on how to create a better relationship.
When you are suffering from Relationship difficulties, usually you feel you have lost that loving feeling and sense of connection with your partner. Sometimes you may feel that you have lost yourself in your relationship.
As a result of these, communication problems further erode your sense of relationship happiness and contentment, making the negative override cycle very difficult to escape from.
Relationship problems usually evolve through a number of Stages as they progress. You can find out what stage your relationship is at.
As Psychologists specializing in relationships, we are highly experienced and can help you with all kinds of relationship difficulties, including:
- Controlling behaviour
- Verbal abuse
- Imbalance of power
- Lack of intimacy
- Poor communication
- Loss of love
- Relationship neglect

Our approach to Relationship Counselling
We pride ourselves in taking a very positive approach to our relationship counselling.
We feel it is important to really understand the problems and perspectives of each of you, and at the same time, we find that most couples are looking to find a positive action plan and way through their problems to make changes which have a positive impact and a real sense of hope for their relationship.

Some of our clinics also provide after hours and Saturday sessions for your convenience.
Communication in a relationship is a vital skill.
Most people find that their methods of communicating with each other are what get in the way of a happy healthy relationship. Effective Interpersonal Communication skills are not something that we are usually taught. But for almost everyone who is having difficulties in their relationship, they feel that they are trying to communicate their thoughts and feelings but that their partner is not listening.
Most people then find that they, themselves don’t want to listen when they experience their partner as not wanting to listen to them, so the net effect is that neither person gets listened to, and both are frustrated.
So learning how to communicate your honest thoughts and feelings in a way that your partner does truly listen is a crucial skill for you to feel that you are in a fulfilling relationship. We can show you some simple but effective principles on how to do this with each other.
Insight about your Relationship patterns for Individuals
We can also assist you if you want individual help and guidance on your relationship, so you can learn what the patterns in your relationships are showing you about yourself.
If you have been in a number of relationships and have found yourself repeating the same kind of experiences, which is often the way our relationships play out, we can help you discover the patterns that you might be unwittingly setting up, so you can change these and move into more rewarding relationships in the future.
