A Safe Space for Open Communication

Relationship counselling, also known as couples therapy, is a form of therapy that focuses on supporting couples to address and resolve conflict, improve communication and strengthen their bond.

The main goal of relationship counselling is to foster healthier and more fulfilling relationships. When you commence your counselling sessions, your psychologist will give you a chance to openly communicate your goals for yourself and your relationship.

Support and Guidance from a Qualified Psychologist

During relationship counselling sessions, your psychologist is responsible for creating a safe and supportive environment where you and your partner can openly discuss your thoughts and feelings. At someone.health, we recognise that everyone’s relationship is unique – and we know it can feel difficult (and intimidating) to discuss private and intimate details. Your psychologist is there to listen without judgment and offer guidance tailored to your relationship’s individual needs.

Exploring Relationship Dynamics and Patterns

Psychologists are trained to help you understand the dynamics of your relationship, identify underlying issues and explore patterns that may be contributing to conflict in your relationship. Your psychologist will approach these topics professionally and sensitively, using a range of evidence-based techniques.

Nurturing Understanding, Empathy, and Collaboration

At someone.health, we believe nurturing understanding, empathy and collaboration between partners is key when undertaking relationship counselling. Our psychologists are skilled in helping couples develop effective strategies to overcome challenges and build a stronger foundation for their relationships. During your session, your psychologist will focus on promoting healthy communication, rebuilding trust, and enhancing intimacy.

Personal Growth and Strengthening Relationships

Participating in relationship counselling can provide an opportunity for personal growth, to help strengthen the foundation of your relationship. It’s not about taking sides or placing blame but rather about fostering mutual growth, understanding, and support. By working together with a qualified psychologist, you can gain insights, develop coping strategies and create positive and sustainable changes within your relationship.

If you’re considering relationship counselling, it’s important to find a qualified and experienced therapist. At someone.health, we have a team of psychologists to support you in your journey towards a healthier and happier relationship.
