What is Relationship Counselling?

relationship counselling BrisbaneRelationship Counselling may include problem solving activities, behavioural strategies and education. It may involve an individual, a couple, or members of a family or group.

Strategies used in Relationship Counselling

Self-Help Counselling:  Sometimes relationship counselling can involve taking workbook activities home, and this will usually involve talking about personal needs and desires with your partner. You are welcome to request information or worksheets that you may complete with your partner at home if they are unable to attend with you.

Behavioural Strategies:  Many behaviours can make family or the couples relationship difficult; identifying and making simple changes in behaviour can improve  relationship bonds.

Problem Solving:  Some problems can be addressed with a problem solving approach.

Education:  Many couples and families are unaware of the normal challenges faced by others.  What is “normal” can depend on many factors such as gender, culture, age, health and individual likes and dislikes.

Personality Testing: Some therapists will use personality profiling to help clients to discover their strengths and areas of vulnerability.

Cognitive Therapy:  Counselling that involves changing your thoughts about relationships can help in many ways.

Mindfulness and Relaxation:  Relaxation and mindfulness strategies can offer considerable help for tense and anxious individuals.
