COUPLES COUNSELLING

Are you confused, exhausted, or maybe even a bit hopeless regarding your relationship? Couples counselling teaches you skills and shows you the steps to break the frustrating and relentless cycles that you can sometime experience in relationships.  

Complex issues such as communication breakdowns, loss of physical and emotional intimacy, jealousy, emotional affairs, infidelity or power and control issues often lead to a crisis point where it can make communication increasingly difficult.

Relationship counselling can help you to understand each other’s experience of the issues and encourage new ways of interacting with each other without being critical, blaming or getting defensive. It can provide an opportunity to resolve past hurts, build trust, discover new ways to reconnect and move towards the life you want together.

SUPERVISION

I offer professional supervision for mental health professionals, social workers and Drug and Alcohol Practitioners. I am a DAPAANZ accredited supervisor. I am aiming to empower and support the supervisee to grow, develop strengths and to make the best decisions they can. I work with a solution-focused and strength-based approach. Supervision provides a room to reflect on complex work situations and to develop effective tools. Risk management and safe practice is as important to me as managing work – life balance and integrating theory and practice.
