Our Services

At Perth Family Counselling, we work differently from other counsellors you may have visited in the past. Our unique counselling style is innovative, incorporates a range of techniques and modalities to help you connect with your emotions and develop new insights. We may use creative expression, mindfulness practices, movement exercises, and other methods to help you access your inner wisdom and find new perspectives. With sessions up to 6hrs for couples and 2-3 hours for families, we allow time to work together.

We believe that both the past and present need to be addressed in counselling, as they are interconnected and can influence our current behaviour and emotions. Through a step-by-step plan, we will work together to heal past wounds and break unhealthy habits in the present, helping you to become the best version of yourself.

We’re here to help.

family relationships and counselling with perth family counselling

Parenting can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. At Perth Family Counselling, we understand the unique challenges that parents face, from managing behaviour and discipline to navigating complex family dynamics.

We offer a safe and supportive environment for parents to discuss their concerns and receive practical advice and guidance.

We also provide family counselling to help families build stronger relationships and improve communication. We understand that conflicts and disagreements can arise within families, and our goal is to help you develop effective communication strategies and work towards resolving any issues that may be causing tension.

Our services include counselling for a range of family and parenting issues, including:

  • Parent-child relationships
  • Blended families
  • Single parenting
  • Divorce and separation
  • Communication between all members of the family
  • Conflict management
  • Managing emotions
  • Anger, anxiety or depression
  • Healing past hurt/ forgiveness

Our relationship expert will work with you to develop personalized solutions tailored to your family’s unique needs. We believe that every family is different, and we take a collaborative approach to ensure that our services are tailored to your specific situation.

Our sessions are usually 2-3 hours so that we can get to the core of the issues and then start building a pathway to stronger relationships.

At our counselling centre, we provide services for adults, older teenagers, and families who are experiencing conflict and seeking resolution. We also work with families of older dynamics; family conflict can be as detrimental when both parents and ‘children’ are all adults.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens In A Session?

Aside from the many proven tools, techniques and approaches available to help you, three key roles are often used in sessions:

Counselling Role:

People often need their experiences, feelings, and authentic story to be heard and totally accepted without any judgement, criticism or evaluation. What happened or is happening to them is 100% real in their world and the impact it is having on their life. In the Relationship Counselling or Marriage Counselling role, you can safely share what is going on for you. 

Coaching Role:

When coaching, many questions will be asked to help the person search for their own answers and insights. Often you will have the answers and may know what to do but there is something in the way that is either blocking or sabotaging your actions. So with Relationship Coaching or Marriage Coaching, the focus is on helping you get clear on what you want and to identify the resources you already have inside.

Consultant Role:

There are two key reasons that people are often not able to resolve relationship issues.

  1. Limited Options: You may have limited options to choose from when facing a relationship or marriage issue. Like only having a menu of three choices at a restaurant. So when you are faced with a relationship problem you will choose the best option available to you. Often these are the limited options you have used in the past. The same is true for the other person, they have a set of limited options that they are probably familiar with and continually use.
  2. Lack Of Independent Support: You may not have independent support to help develop new strategies and help keep you on track as you start to try out new ways. It takes time to develop new habits and ways of thinking. You may have experienced giving up and reverting back to an old familiar pattern or strategy.

As a Consultant, this role is to offer new customised strategies to help you with your relationship. This will give you more choices and awareness in handling relationship situations. These strategies will always be working toward getting your needs met as well as helping others get their needs met.

What Can I Do If My Partner Does Not Want To Come To Counselling?

When one person in a relationship changes, the dynamics in the relationship must change. So if you are looking to change your marriage or relationship, by you changing things around you will change also. The big challenge here is that your marriage or relationship will unconsciously want things to remain the same as this is what people around you are familiar with. This is where working with someone is critical to support you as you create and develop your new habits to become the more authentic you. The best thing you can do is start today with support.

How long is the waiting list for?

This can change from time to time. Usually around 4 weeks, however we do have cancellations and can put you on the list. Also, while you are waiting, Claire will give you some pre-tasks to get you started.

Can I claim our sessions through Medicare or Private Health Cover?

Claire's approach is different from your standard Counsellor and for this reason she is now independent from Medicare and private health funds. This being said, the legislation can change these days and we invite you to check this directly with your health insurance and see with them what can be done or claim under mental health, without a provider number. 

Thank you.

All we need to know about bookings and cancellations Fee?
