At Positive Wellbeing Clinic we honour and respect all relationships and are committed to helping couples establish more rewarding, trusting and committed relationships with one another. We work with heterosexual, gay and lesbian couples of all ages to strengthen the bond that you have with your partner and address any issues that are getting in the way of you having a fulfilling and satisfied relationship.
Relationship Counselling is suitable for all couples at any stage of their relationship including couples that have only been dating for a short period, newlyweds or those preparing for marriage and those that have been in a relationship for a long time.
We are relationship advocates, which means we view the “relationship” as the primary client in the therapy process. This is very different to Individual Counselling, where the individual is the client and the focus is on addressing specific difficulties that are occurring for that person.
In order to work on the relationship, we need to have the relationship in the therapy room. Our approach is non-blaming, in that we are not interested in finding fault in either partner. We are interested in understanding what happens between two people to cause distress, rather than what each person is doing to the other.
At times, it may become evident that individual issues such as depression, trauma or anxiety are preventing the relationship from improving. In these situations, an individual may be referred for Individual Counselling to get assistance with these difficulties.
