Hong Kong Based Relationship Counselling

Couple Counselling

Couples counselling is sometimes considered a last resort for when things in a relationship are at breaking point, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Couples counselling can help you strengthen the bonds of a relationship, gain a deeper understanding of the processes that occur within the dynamic of a relationship, and prevent minor irritations becoming much bigger problems.

If however you do find yourself at a point where problems have become “big”, there is still hope. Couples counselling can help to build the foundations of open, honest, non-confrontational communication in a safe, and professional environment.


Relationship and marriage counselling that can address a broad range of problems

Some of the issues that can be addressed through couples counselling can include (but are not limited to):

  • Infidelity within the relationship
  • Issues around childcare, division of tasks in the home
  • Money concerns
  • Bereavement within the family
  • Fertility problems
  • Addictions (gambling, sex, drug and alcohol etc)
  • Intimacy issues
  • Loss of emotional connection within the relationship

Counselling sessions are offered to both same-sex and hetereosexual couples, whether married or in a very new relationship. The session format will consist of an initial assessment with both parties, followed by a mixture of joint and individual sessions, depending on the goals of therapy. Therapy techniques used will be a mixture of narrative therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and family systems theory. Both parties will be treated with a non-judgemental and compassionate approach, irrespective of the issues brought in to the therapy space.


Post-Divorce Counselling

Sometimes couples reach a point where the marriage has broken down irretrievably and the only workable solution is to separate permanently. In this scenario divorce counselling can help couples or individuals grieve for a relationship, work through the trauma of the divorce process, and create a healthier platform from which to rebuild your life after the loss of your marriage.
