Marriage Counselling Psychologists in Melbourne
Would you like to strengthen your relationship or is your marriage in crisis? Our Melbourne CBD and Gisborne practices offer marriage counselling with registered psychologists and clinical psychologists who are experienced, passionate and equipped with the right training to help you work through your relationships struggles.
Our marriage counsellors will seek to work with you as a couple and an individual to improve your marriage. Seeking help for your marriage takes courage and commitment. Making that important step shows dedication and is the most important first step for couples who want to repair and strengthen their relationship. In session, our couples get the opportunity to talk openly in a safe environment to resolve underlying issues. Sometimes this involves working out together what has gone wrong, checking that both parties are committed to the relationship, and then teaching skills and tools to improve your relationship. The main aim is to heal past hurts, and focus on improving closeness and connection and intimacy.
As relationship therapists, our job is to be more than a mediator. It is to take you through a process. To make sure we’re heading in the right direction we track our progress as we go.
What can you expect in marriage counselling with a Mindview psychologist?
We do not use a one size fits all method in our sessions as we understand that each marriage and their circumstances will vary. This is why we have a look at each couple and develop an approach that suits them and will enable the best results. Some of our techniques include:
Emotions Focussed Therapy (EFT)
this is ideal for healing emotional hurt and resentment as we place focus on the emotions rather than the conflict.
The Gottman Method
John Gottman’s Evidenced-Based Principles for making happy relationships: aims to improve the intimacy of the relationship by giving the couple tools and skills to communicate with each other effectively
Overcoming sexual issues
such as lack of intimacy or desire, sexual pressure, incompatibility issues, problems with communication, etc. Sometimes individual therapy is needed at the same time.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
this allows the couple to develop future goals and get a sense of direction by identifying mutual values.
This is used to identify life-traps (we all have them!) that help people to discover why they act the way they do.
No matter what approach we use in marriage therapy, building a trusting relationship with our patients is our top priority. Considering relationship counselling in Melbourne is the first step towards a happier and healthier relationship. Please contact us for more information on sessions.
