Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.' -Thomas Merton

Relationship Counselling in Melbourne and Online
Feeling good about our life situation can depend greatly on having healthy relationships. Relationships give life meaning. The stronger our network of relationships and social connections, the more chance we have of leading longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
But relationships can also become painful and challenging. Everyone struggles with them at times, or searches for ways to make their relationships more fulfilling.
Regardless of the relationship situation you are in right now, All Relationship Matters can help. We are a specialist relationship counselling service which focuses on relationship problems.
You may question whether counselling is useful or necessary when you have friends to talk to about your problems. However, friends don't always help. Friends are usually well-intentioned but do not possess the training or necessary skills. They may have opinions about what you should do that jar with your inner sense of what is right. Or they may become judgemental. You may also feel ashamed or embarrassed about talking to them honestly. Sometimes, friends can make things worse by giving advise that is not well thought out or they may have their own interest at heart.
That is where psychology or psychotherapy comes in. When you talk to a professional counsellor, psychologist or psychotherapist you can be sure that you won’t be judged and that the conversation will be helpful to you. The agenda and focus is on you, on what you really think and feel and how you see the world. Most importantly, counsellors are trained to bring about lasting benefits for you. Moreover, relationship counselling sessions are confidential. In this private space, you can simply be yourself.
Our relationship counsellors are trained to be impartial and their listening is targeted to detect things that you are missing, to see unexamined emotions which are holding you back, and then to feed back to you other options. A counsellor won’t tell you what to do, but will help you explore alternatives. This means you can come to your own answers and make appropriate decisions which chime with your inner sense of what is right for you, and in your own time move forwards into a happier life.
If you would like to talk to one of our trained and experienced relationship counsellors about these or other concerns, please call us on 0400 999 918. We’re here to help.
