Sydney CBD and Online Relationship Counselling Services
I provide relationship counselling for individuals and couples in-person and by appointment, at either my Sydney CBD office or online.
Individual relationship counselling
I have extensive experience and training in many areas of the counselling field, however my speciality is working with individuals that are experiencing relationship pain. Visit my individual counselling page to read more.
Relationship or marriage counselling for couples
I work with couples that are experiencing negative and destructive patterns of relating and help them develop the skills for forming and maintaining healthy and loving relationships. Visit my couples therapy 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.
Online counselling for couples
I provide online counselling for couples for any residents of Australia. Online counselling can be just as effective as in-person sessions. Visit my online counselling for couples page to read more.
Length of sessions
I meet with individuals and couples according to your unique goals and needs. Together we decide what is best for you and your schedule.
Sessions are 50 minutes for individuals and 60 minutes for couples. The first couples therapy appointment is 90 minutes.
• 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 download, print and fill out the documents you need to bring to the initial counselling session.
• Subsequent sessions
For individuals, subsequent sessions are 50 minutes and I see most our clients at the same day and time using a fortnightly enrolment system.
Couples in relationship crisis
I recommend that couples that are in 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 explore what changes are possible to improve the quality of your relationship.
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 need 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.
