Relationship Therapist Crows Nest
We specialise in providing relationship counselling in an open, non-judgemental and encouraging environment.
Located in Crows Nest, we use our professional training and life experience to equip you with the knowledge and skills to create healthy relationships.
We will start by identifying what’s causing your unhappiness – and then give you practical and realistic strategies to deal with it, so you can get the relationship back under control.
If you are in a relationship that is not mutually supportive, or defined by continual criticism, manipulation or worse – then these are all signs of an unhealthy relationship. If you are unhappy in a relationship, but are having trouble deciding if this is ‘normal’, want to work to improve the relationship, or make the call to end the relationship – then we can help!

Frequently Asked Questions
Wouldn’t ending the relationship be better than relationship counselling?
It depends on the situation. If the couple is having serious problems that they cannot seem to solve on their own, then ending the relationship may be the best option. However, if the couple is willing to work on their relationship and is open to trying new things, then relationship counselling may be a better option.
It’s important to remember that every relationship is different, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The best way to get advice on your specific situation is to book a preliminary session so that I can get to know you and your partner and understand your unique needs.
How is relationship counselling different from talking to a friend?
There are a few key ways in which relationship counselling is different from talking to a friend. First, relationship therapists, like me, are trained professionals who understand the dynamics of relationships and can offer specific advice and guidance. Second, therapy sessions are confidential, which means that whatever is discussed in counselling will not be shared with anyone else. Finally, therapy is typically focused on problem-solving and goal-setting, whereas conversations with friends are often more general and open-ended.
Why does relationship therapy take so long?
Relationships are incredibly complex, and as such, it can take a long time to identify and address the issues that are causing problems. Additionally, it can take time for couples to learn new skills and communication techniques that can help them resolve their issues.
When couples first enter therapy, there is often a reluctance to open up and share what is really going on. It can take time for trust to be established and for couples to feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings.
How can a therapist understand the dynamics of my relationship?
Therapists are trained to understand the psychology behind relationships. They can analyse most situations and see beyond the superficial to what is really going on. However, it’s also important for the couple to be honest and forthcoming about their relationship in order for the therapist to gain an accurate understanding of the dynamics.
Should I get individual counselling too?
It depends on your situation. If you and your partner are having difficulty communicating or working through problems together, individual counselling can help you explore your own thoughts and feelings and learn new ways to communicate with your partner.
If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues that are affecting your relationship, individual counselling can help you address these issues and learn how to manage them in a way that doesn’t put strain on your relationship.
It’s best to book an assessment so that I am able to evaluate your unique situation and make a recommendation based on that.
