Couples Counselling Dandenong

Couples counselling, Dandenong residents already appreciate, is a proven way to repair or recalibrate a relationship which is not as healthy as it should be. This can be due to both internal and external, emotional and physical, factors.

Often, it is a cumulation of such factors which can cause a relationship to fracture. These can often hark back to issues in a partner’s own upbringing.

This is where it is wise to consider couples counselling. Dandenong-based partners are pleased that our Light Mind Counselling team are handily-placed to provide the even-handed and holistic help that can allow their relationship to move forward in a positive way.

Our team is composed of highly-trained and thoroughly-experienced individuals, ready to work with each couple to find, and deal with, the specific factors or considerations that are putting strain on the relationship. We are always non-judgemental, and bring a high degree of cultural sensitivity to each situation. With this approach, couples know we have placed their needs at the heart of each consultation.


A marriage counsellor, Dandenong residents already appreciate, can help provide a clear focus covering the current position of their relationship.

From this, therapeutic and holistic actions can be introduced to move forward together, with a goal to save and strengthen the marriage bond. This can be true for couples early in their marriage, as well as where long-established relationships are struggling.

We have found that the best approach is based on evidence, with the findings compared to valuable research. This is why we frequently make powerful use of the processes and actions, proven and honed over more than three decades, of the world-famous Gottman Institute based in Seattle in the US.

The starting point is to build a clear, non-judgemental, picture of the current situation by our marriage counsellor.

Dandenong residents have already found clear benefits when working from this starting point. Emotional and physical issues can be examined, as well as historical and other outside contributors, such as family, work, financial, health and other areas.

Moving forward, therapeutic actions can be put in place, always as part of a holistic approach. Couples learn how to better communicate, handle disagreements, and find the path to move forward together as they reset or repair their relationship.
