Couple Counselling
 

Therapy

Talk to someone at Nuway Counselling today! Couples Counselling helps clients to identify current and potential pitfalls in order to maintain a fulfilling relationship with each other. A therapist will work with two people simultaneously in a session with the goal to improve the two person's relationship with each other. Besides couples, the two persons can be siblings, parent-child or co-workers and other relationships.

A couple’s counselling involves working with both partners together to improve the quality of their relationship. Sessions could involve learning to set boundaries, learning to express yourself assertively or perhaps exploring how your childhood experience influences your current relationships, something we call the attachment perspective.

 

Traditionally, couples have only come to counselling when they are in conflict or experience difficulties communicating with each other but nowadays, as people recognize the importance of building a healthy relationship, partners can use couple’s counselling even when they start dating.

 

This can help stop any possible conflicts before they arise. By taking time to really look at a relationship, any unconscious behaviours can be discovered and discussed before they cause harm.

 

Counselling has been given as a gift for anniversary presents to help develop deeper and closer relationships, likewise, pre-marital counselling could be used to prevent future challenges.

 

 

Couples counselling

Here at Nuway Counselling, we understand that couples might seek counselling in times of crisis and that counselling can be a relationship-saving resource.

As with all of our counselling approaches, we believe that no matter how you have come to counselling, the fact that you are desiring to make a change is good and we would be happy to be involved.

 

It could be that you want to boost what is at the moment a very content relationship and see what new ways you can develop your relationship. In either case, couples counselling involves both people working together in the session.

 

We will discuss the family systems perspective, which is the idea that when we talk about our individual behaviours, thoughts or emotions, these are actually inseparably linked to those around us.

 

We can discuss trust, communication or conflict issues and look at strategies for seeing problems clearly and calmly and then ways we can overcome said problems.

 

For those hard times, we offer conflict resolution and when things are getting better we will look at strengthening existing bonds.

Infertility/fertility counselling

Fertility counselling provides tools and advice for intended parents to learn to cope with anxiety, stress, grief, and depressed feelings due to unsuccessful fertility treatments. Counselling also helps you to manage your IVF cycle and nurture your relationship with your partner and family. 

 

For intended surrogates and parents, fertility counsellors can provide clinical counselling reports for required applications or procedures. 

New parenthood Counselling

Becoming a new parent presents many different challenges, emotions and demands that you may never have come across before. This coupled with the physical demands of mood swings or a previous mental health issue can be quite stressful.

 

We can look at ways of understanding your emotions in this new part of your life and how to maintain good mental health.

 

For those not yet parents or maybe struggling with infertility issues, we can discuss how you cope and react to your situation and how best to move forward in difficult situations.

 

Pre-marital Counselling

For pre-marital counselling, we run a set course of 8 sessions. Over these sessions, common topics include:

  • communication styles

  • financial considerations

  • children and parenting

  • faith and values

  • family traditions

  • friendships and leisure time

  • dealing with past relationships

In 8 sessions, topics of finance, parenting values, life values, communication and conflict resolution, and readiness of commitment will be discussed. Free resources and videos are accessible through our website to engage couples for a long lasting relationship. This package also includes, for free, one of the following services:

  • genetic counselling

  • family financial planning and literacy education

  • family lawyer legal advice.

 

New relationships can be very exciting and dynamic and so when working in this setting we can be very interactive, innovative, and creative with how we explore these ideas. We understand that everyone is different and comes with their own philosophy and we can also provide faith-based pre-marital counselling upon request.
