All Couples Go Through Tough Times
- Do you argue with your partner almost every day?
- Are you and your partner stuck in a rut-living more like flatmates than partners or lovers?
- Are you and your partner too focused on your own lives to spend time with each other?
- Have you and your partner stopped having fun with each other-or worse, stopped talking at all?
- Is your sex life unfulfilling or non-existent?
- Do you lie awake at night wondering how much longer your relationship will last?
If you have answered "YES" to any of these questions, then you are not alone. Although it is difficult to admit, relationship problems such as these very common.
Whatever the current state of your relationship, the good news is that you and your partner can create a better relationship. It may take a little time and work, but you can help you rekindle the love that bought you together in the first place and help you make your relationship the best it has ever been.
With one simple decision, you can have any of these-and more.
Relationship Counselling Will Help You:
Stop Anger, Abuse and Violence
Anger is a destructive force in many relationships. I have had 20 years experience teaching people how to manage anger and stop abuse and violence.
Good communication is essential for a good relationship. I can help you develop better listening and speaking skills, as well as ways to work through difficult issues in your relationship.
Overcome Affairs and Infidelity
Rebuilding a loving and trusting relationship is a major challenge after an affair (or infidelity of any kind). I can help you navigate this difficult and troubled journey.
Romance and passion can easily die off in a relationship. I can help you rebuild the romance that you felt in your early days with each other.
Avoid Separation and Divorce
Many relationships and marriages end in unnecessary separation or divorce. Talking about relationship issues can help you avoid this unnecessary outcome.
Develop Closeness and Intimacy
Feelings of warmth, love and intimacy can die down in a relationship. I can help you rebuild your levels of closeness and intimacy with each other.

What Past Clients Have To Say:
(Note: Clients names and photos have been changed to protect client confidentiality)
Over the years, I believe that I have seen a total of 7-8 counsellors. Without any shred of exaggeration, my experience with Alastair was by far the best. He was extremely helpful and he really truly did change my situation at the time completely into a positive direction. I have recommended him to many people since. I will never forget what he did for me, and all I need to do is think about him and it renews my faith in people and that they can care and make a difference and things can change.
Couples counselling has been one of the best experiences we have been through as a couple. I have learned how to control my anger in arguments and I am listening to my partner far more than I have before. We are much closer as a couple and look forward to our future together.
Alastair has helped me deal with my relationship separation. He has helped me realise that I do have a meaningful future and he has supported me while I have got my life back together. I cannot thank him enough!
Frequently Asked Questions:

I charge $160 for a standard relationship counselling session (50 minutes). “Extended” sessions of 80 minutes are available for $200. Extended sessions are great for first sessions or if you want to work more intensively on your relationship.

Most couples make considerable changes in their relationship in the first 3-5 sessions. Many complete relationship counselling within 6-8 sessions. Once you have learned the skills to have a happy, peaceful and loving relationship, you can apply these skills thoroughout your life!
