Welcome to the Relationship Room

Couples Therapy at the Relationship Room is provided by registered psychologists and psychotherapists with extensive experience and training in working with both couples and individuals.

 

At the Relationship Room, our couples counsellors support couples in working through the range of issues arising in relationships including infidelity, trust issues, difficulty with communication and conflict, life transitions, parenting and infertility and also in making big choices about relationships and working through separations where necessary.

 

We recognise that while helping couples to do conflict well is crucial, having good conflict management skills is not enough to make a strong relationship and we are also able to support couples in coming to understand and connect with one another in meaningful ways and create strong, resilient family units.
