Marriage counselling can help you learn new skills to help restore and strengthen your relationship with your spouse and your family. We provide couples with a secure space for reconnection, healing and restoring. Couples often come to Love Life Counselling experiencing despair, anxiety, deep wounds, anger, fear and bitterness. All couples experience pressures and conflicts in their relationships over time – this is normal and natural. How the couple manages these pressures will make the difference between those couples who thrive and those who struggle.
Love Life Counselling focuses on hope and strives to strengthen the couple’s love, their ability to trust, to act with respect, to deal with harms, betrayals and disappointments, to manage the pressures of life, to create pleasure and companionship, to practice healthy communication, and to find pleasure in a satisfying sex life.
Typical issues discussed during marital counselling
Marriage Counselling in Crises and Trauma
Sometimes crises can arise, such as a severe illness, trauma, abortion, miscarriage, the death of a child or loved one, infertility, a suicide of a family member, mental illness, job loss, and other trauma. This puts tremendous pressure on a marriage and marriage counselling can provide an essential space for empathy, wisdom and attentive listening.
Divorce and separation counselling
Unfortunately, divorce is common in Australia – especially at around the 12 years of marriage milestone. Divorce might be common, but that doesn’t make it easy. There are plenty of complications in divorce: relocating, reorganising finances, restructuring social lives, arranging custody, and re-entering the dating scene when you’re ready. Our divorce and separation specialists assist you to emotionally alter to the separation, offer you with safe surroundings, assist you to negotiate confidently, and make decisions about the care of your children.
