Domestic violence

I thought his jealousy and constant over-protectiveness was romantic at first I realise now that this was just another way to control me. I was only property.

- Survivor from an emotionally abusive relationship

There is no place within a healthy relationship for abuse of any kind.

Whether this is verbal, psychological or physical if you, or your partner, have become abusive, then don’t delay in seeking further help.Sometimes people under stress, behave in ways that they later regret and by learning to identify the triggers for their behaviour, they are more likely to find a better way to deal with these issues in the future.

Abuse towards your partner can never be condoned but counselling can help the abuser to change their behaviour and the dynamics of the relationship better understood. Where there is ongoing abuse during a relationship, couple counselling may not be appropriate. However, please talk to me about your options, and I will endeavour to assist you both in finding a way to change the parameters of the relationship.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, has advised that “ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do”. He has encouraged providers to continue vital face-to-face services where possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal and relationship issues continue to need assistance. My practice is still open for hypnotherapy and individual or relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.

If you are sick or have come into contact with the Coronavirus at any point, and/or if you have recently been overseas, please stay at home and contact me on 0407 009 050 to reschedule your appointment.

The safety of my clients and wider community is of utmost importance to me, and my home-based clinic is fully compliant with the new social distancing rules and hygiene practices. I have ensured that appointments are staggered so that you and your partner, where appropriate, are the only clients visiting my practice, at any one time.

Video and tele-consult sessions are available for both individuals and couples, including a program for couples to complete a Rekindle the Love workshop, online.

Please contact me for more information.

Coronavirus and social isolation will add to existing pressure points on relationships, so don’t let your marriage become a coronavirus casualty.

I thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times and know that together we will get through this.
