Online Expert Relationship Counselling
Professional and private relationship counselling, online via telehealth.
No relationship is perfect. Often, we find that situations arise where small, unchecked relationship issues can evolve into much deeper and difficult to overcome problems.
Online relationship counselling provides a safe, supportive and collaborative environment where both partners can openly discuss problems in their relationship and highlight what is important to them.
The process of relationship counselling online involves meeting with a professionally trained psychologist to facilitate and navigate the complexities of a relationship.
The counselling is provided in an empathetic, non-judgemental and neutral manner.
We’ve seen many couples leave relationship counselling sessions thankful and appreciative for the guidance and support and going on to have a much happier and healthier relationships.
Incredibly – research has shown that relationship counselling has a success rate of around 70%, and whilst some relationships simply don’t work-out, the evidence suggests that relationship counselling is a proven way to improve your relationship.
Medicare rebated relationship counselling with a personally matched, experienced psychologist.
One of the misconceptions with online relationship counselling is that it’s not rebated through Medicare – this is not the case.
At Online Psychologists Australia our sessions are claimable through Medicare.
You’ll be individually matched with an expert psychologist that best meets your relationship’s unique needs.
What can you expect engaging in online relationship counselling?
What you will find in the first session of relationship counselling is that your professional psychologist wants to get to know you, your partner and to get to know your relationship.
In a completely non-confrontational and non-biased way, the counsellor wants to form an understanding of what has brought you to engage with a counsellor.
In some cases, one side of the relationship is content with how things are and does not wish to confront the issues – this is completely normal and can be helped!
Once the initial foundations have been built, together with the counsellor you will work through some relationship goals and build up ways to have more positive interactions. You may be given some tasks to complete at home or you’ll talk through situations in a calm and non-confrontational way – where both parties are able to freely and safely express themselves.
Online relationship counselling isn’t just a “venting” session however, it’s a place where relationship burdens can be deconstructed and lifted off your relationship’s back.
