How Does Couples Counselling Work?

Our couples counselling sessions are conducted by experienced and accredited counsellors who specialise in relationship dynamics. The process involves both partners openly discussing their feelings, concerns, and challenges within a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Key aspects of couples counselling at Private Medical Clinic:

Safe and Supportive Setting

We provide a safe and supportive setting for you to express your thoughts and emotions towards each other. This setting encourages open and honest communication.

Respecting Individual Differences

In relationships, it’s essential to understand and respect each other’s individuality. Our counselling helps couples recognise and appreciate their differences, reducing conflicts caused by blurred boundaries.

Addressing Defensive Patterns

Some couples develop defensive patterns of relating, which often involve blame, attack, and withdrawal. We work with you to develop constructive communication skills and break these patterns.

Exploring Deeper Patterns

Relationships can be influenced by early relationship patterns from our past. Counselling helps uncover and understand these deeper patterns and insecurities, allowing you to work through them.

Couples counselling is beneficial for anyone experiencing difficulties in their relationship. Whether you are in a romantic relationship, marriage, or have other types of relationships, our counsellors are here to help.
