Sydney CBD and Newtown relationship counselling services
We provide relationship counselling for individuals and couples in-person and by appointment, at either of our two offices in the Sydney CBD and the inner west suburb of Newtown.
Individual relationship counselling
We have extensive experience and training in many areas of the counselling field, however our speciality is working with individuals that are experiencing relationship pain. Visit our individual counselling page to read more.

Couples sex therapy
We work with individuals and couples that are having sexual problems in their relationship. We use a sex-positive approach to help you reignite your intimate connection and get your sexual relationship back on track. Visit our couples sex therapy page to read more.
Length of sessions
We meet with individuals and couples according to your unique goals and needs. Together we decide what is best for you and your schedule.
All sessions with our therapists are 60 minutes in length.
• Initial sessions
In the initial session we 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 we 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 we confirm your appointment, our 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 60 minutes and we see most our clients at the same day and time using a fortnightly enrolment system.
Couples in relationship crisis
We recommend that couples that are in relationship crisis commit to six sessions before they decide to end the therapy or the relationship.
We 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, our 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 our experience, the clients that have the most positive outcomes from therapy attend sessions on a regular basis for at least 3 - 6 months.
