Online Relationship Counselling Services
I provide relationship counselling for individuals and couples by appointment online via Zoom videoconference.
Relationship and marriage counselling for couples
I've spent my career specialising in working with couples that are experiencing negative and destructive patterns of relating. I can help you develop the skills for maintaining a healthy and loving relationship. Visit my couples therapy page to read more.
Online counselling for couples
I provide online counselling for couples who are residents of Australia. Online counselling can be just as effective as in-person couples therapy sessions. Visit my online counselling for couples page to read more.
Discernment Counselling for couples
If you or your partner are ambivalent about working on the relationship and considering separation or divorce, I recommend time-limited Discernment Counselling so you can make a clear and confident decision about the future of your relationship. Visit my Discernment Counselling page to read more.
Couples sex therapy
I work with individuals and couples that are having sexual problems in their relationship. I use a sex-positive approach to help you reignite your intimate connection and get your sexual relationship back on track. Visit my couples sex therapy page to read more.
Length of sessions
I meet with couples according to their unique goals and needs. Together we decide what is best for you and your schedule.
Sessions are 60 minutes or 90 minutes for couples.
I recommend 90 minutes for the first couples therapy appointment.
• Initial sessions
In the initial session, I work with you to gain a full understanding of your needs and provide a thorough and comprehensive assessment.
In the initial session, you will experience how I work and have a strong sense of how we can work together. You may feel hopeful and a sense of relief because you have taken the first step in creating the relationship that you desire. Clients often report that they experience new awareness and insights from this initial session.
After I confirm your appointment, my receptionist will send you forms you can complete online.
• Subsequent sessions
For couples, subsequent sessions are 60 minutes.
I see most of our clients on the same day and time using a fortnightly enrolment system.
Couples in relationship crisis
I recommend that couples that are in a relationship crisis commit to six sessions before they decide to end the therapy or the relationship.
I have found this approach extremely valuable for couples that are close to ending their relationship as it gives you the time to explore what changes are possible to improve the quality of your relationship. If you or your partner is ambivalent about the future of the relationship, I recommend a time-limited Discernment Counselling process.
Length of therapy
This, of course, is a very difficult question to answer because every client is different and has unique needs. The length of therapy can depend on a number of factors, which may include the type of issue, the length of time that negative patterns have been ingrained, and the willingness and motivation you have to change.
On average, my clients can tend to have between 8-12 sessions. Some research suggests that it can take 3-4 months to start to experience long-lasting change. However, many clients report that they notice changes after only a few sessions. Some clients may require medium to longer-term therapy, which may last longer than a year.
Together we determine how often you will attend based on your needs and schedule, which may be weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.
In my experience, the clients that have the most positive outcomes from therapy attend sessions on a regular basis for at least 3 - 6 months.
I am currently working with all clients online via Zoom videoconference.
I see clients Monday through Wednesday from 11:00AM to 6:30PM with some appointments available after 6pm.
Please enquire with our receptionist on (02) 8968 9323 or book online to see my latest fee schedule.
Clinton Power + Associates is a cashless business. We use Ezidebit as our payment processor and will collect your credit card or bank details in the first session. You will then be debited after each subsequent session.
Ezidebit accepts VISA, Mastercard, American Express or we can debit your preferred bank account.
Relationship counselling for couples may be the best investment you make in your lifetime.
