Psychology Melbourne's couples program provides a fresh approach, and is often the last resort for many couples facing separation. You will be assigned to one of our highly experienced couples psychologists, who will develop a treatment plan for you. They will assess what your relationship requires to allow you to achieve what both partners want, and whether each partner would benefit from individual counselling.
If so, he or she will work with one of our highly-qualified psychologists to deal with personal issues that might be affecting the relationship, such as work problems, individual anxiety or depression and/or other social problems.
Our approach clears the way for more productive couples sessions with a relationships expert, who can help the partners identify and work out their difficulties, improve communications, stop the blaming and resentment, and find solutions.
This program has achieved outstanding results with couples who feel stuck and unable to improve their relationships. It has also been effective with couples who have been in constant conflict and those who have little support from family, friends and the community.
Research indicates that couples counselling is more successful when couples seek expert help early. US studies suggest that the average couple endures six years of unhappiness before considering professional help. Too often, they will simply opt to split up. The sooner you can start working on improving your relationship, the better. Find out how we can help you.
