Trusted & Reliable Experts in Couples & Relationship Counselling
Are you in Perth and looking for relationship counsellors you can trust? We’re more than happy to help.
Couples today face many stressors – juggling work, home, children, and trying to live up to expectations of their spouse and extended family. As a result, many marriages break down, and couples end up on the brink of divorce.
Furthermore, the never-ending adjustment and challenges that couples face in the early years of marriage – adjusting to their new partner, in-laws, expectations, differing life goals, work, or merely managing differences – pose a threat to them.
As counsellors, one of our goals is to make sure that we can help save couples’ relationships professionally. The only thing we require from couples is their commitment.
What is relationship counselling?
Relationship counselling is one of the most effective processes that can help couples understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses. It dramatically involves an in-depth and honest conversation with the counsellors about the relationship challenges each couple is facing in their relationship.
When do you need couples or relationship counselling?
✔️ You do not communicate well with your partner
✔️ You feel angry with your partner
✔️ You do not feel a sense of intimacy with your partner
✔️ You think that you love your partner, but believe that something is somehow “missing” in the relationship
✔️ You felt that your partner doesn’t value your opinions
More often than not, both parties find that they love each other deeply, but do not know how to move on in the relationship constructively. In cases like this, it would be beneficial to seek professional counselling to revisit and understand why circumstances have developed to the present state throughout the relationship.
What are the 3 A’s in a relationship?
The three A’s in a relationship are Acceptance, Accommodation, and Assertiveness.
Why is acceptance important to a relationship?
If there’s acceptance, each couple will have the ability to tolerate and value his/her partner’s differences.
At the beginning of a new relationship, couples often go through a phase of happiness, excitement and curiosity. As they get to know each other better, each other’s strengths and weaknesses reveal more and more.
While some partners hope the other party may accept their differences, other partners may choose to turn a blind eye on their partner’s weaknesses, or hope changes may occur with time.
However, such a relationship tends to become passive as time goes, causing couples to be on crossroads of their relationship. If you’re in a messy relationship, and you’ve been yearning for acceptance, let us know, and we will help you.
What is the significant benefit of couple counselling?
The primary benefit of couple counselling is it Enhances marital relationship.
Couple sessions generally focus on enhancing the marital relationship by allowing the couple to understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses better.
As each couple’s issue are unique, the challenges that they face vary. Hence, the therapy we provide is focused on providing a secure and safe space for the couple to bring up their concerns. This allows for better functioning of the marital relationship as the triggers that cause dysfunction in the relationship can be managed by fostering greater understanding.
When adequate understanding, awareness and insight is gained, the couple can regain the new-found knowledge to move forward their goals in their lives.
