Counselling

Topics in Brief:

Marriage Counselling

Marriage counselling addresses marriage problems as well as other issues experienced by married couples. Often couples feel that marriage separation is the only option when dealing with issues such as adultery or major communication difficulties. Divorce in Australia is at an all time high causing grief amongst many families. It is important to know however that there are options apart from divorce. Before a marriage breakdown becomes inevitable, a private appointment with Antonia at Counsellor's Room, for Marriage Counselling- Brisbane, can be of invaluable assistance in dealing with individual issues, couple and relationship difficulties, as well as family dynamics that have influenced your relationship. If ultimately no solution can be found, she can assist in discussing issues of family law, such as settlement options and custody of children. more...


Relationship & Couples Counselling

Relationships are about the way two people interact and relate to each other. Intimacy, communication, sharing the good, bad and difficult aspects in life are characteristics of a working relationship.

However relationships require effort and awareness to continually mature and grow with the time spent in that relationship. more...

Parents parent differently from individual to individual, therefore conflict is inevitable. more...

People with depression find it hard to function every day and may be reluctant to participate in activities they once enjoyed. more...
