Commitment, loyalty, communication and managing conflict all play an important role in ensuring its success. That’s why our couple’s counselling in Applecross and the surrounding South Perth areas are important to increase mutual respect, communication and parenting concerns within a relationship.

- Increase mutual respect, affection, and closeness between you and your partner
- Develop greater understanding
- Conflict resolution and communication
- Depression and Anxiety or other Mental Health concerns
- Anger management
- Sex difficulties
- Recovering from an affair
- Alcohol and substance abuse
What happens in Relationship Counselling?
You will first meet with your psychologist together as a couple then individually for the next few sessions. We first want to understand your personal and relationship history, the problems you and your partner might be facing, as well as establishing what you would like to achieve during your counselling sessions.
Our Perth based Relationship Counselling Psychologists are proud to be approved members of the Gottman Relationship Check Up assessment service. This service is a research-based assessment tool for counsellors to use with couples as a method for learning the strengths and challenges of a relationship, and to determine a treatment plan.
This world-renowned program uses assessment, therapeutic framework and interventions to help couples strengthen their relationships. The program helps couples learn to replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and to repair past hurts.
What type of Marriage Counselling therapy do you use?
Gottman method therapy, cognitive behavioural couple therapy and interpersonal therapy will all be available to use during your marriage counselling journey.
How long are the sessions?
The first session that forms part of your assessment and goal setting is 1hr and 20 mins in duration. The next one to two intervention sessions are generally 50 minutes each. From that point, you have a choice to continue with 50 minute sessions or 1hr and 20 minute sessions.
Most couples attend between 8 and 24 hours of therapy across a 12-18 month period. Contact our Applecross Office located South of Perth’s CBD, to make a relationship counselling session.
