RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING IN PERTH
Our Relationship Counselling is a process of educating couples as to what is healthy and what is not, assessing where and why they fall down in your relationships, and then instilling the new skills, beliefs and actions that transform relationships to vibrancy and sustainability.
We are Richard and Helena Boyd, Directors of and Psychotherapists at the Energetics Institute in Perth. As a married couple for 20 years with a young family, we aspire to model to clients how to create and maintain successful relationships. We have faced many common relationship issues but our committed relationship and healthy family is a testimonial to our work.
HOW CAN OUR RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING HELP YOU?
As we are a husband and wife team at the Energetics Institute, either a male or female psychotherapist can see you for Relationship Counselling in Perth.
Early life mirroring and modelling of your parents forms your beliefs, attitudes and approaches to relationships and partners. In many cases, these unconsciously transmitted dynamics relate unhealthy dynamics in your relationship. There are things to be both unlearned and new things to be learnt that only a relationship counsellor or psychotherapist can show and ideally model to you.
Our Relationship Counselling in Perth is a process of educating individuals and couples as to what is healthy and what is not in your relationship, and then instilling new skills, beliefs and actions that will transform your relationship to vibrancy and sustainability.

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN OUR RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING ?
Typically we will work with both persons in a couple therapy session, but there may be reasons to do individual sessions with one or both persons to uncover individual issues, family of origin history, or other dynamics impacting your relationship.
In our Couples Therapy in Perth, we often find one or both of you are unaware that you unconsciously project unresolved childhood issues onto your partner. Likewise, you may fall or regress into a child to parent dynamic where you “make” your partner your parent, and make infantile demands to meet needs and wants that as adults you should attend to yourself. We analyse and make conscious these dynamics, and work to resolve them. Each individual is made accountable to your own issues and we work at the individual and couples level to rework your relationship into a healthy state.
We work with each person’s unique abilities and differences to love. We have each person express non-judgementally if they can receive the other person with acceptance, tolerance, forgiveness and compassion.
In some cases, the truth is your relationship is over but one or both of you may not be able to express that truth. We assist with relationship separation and grieving where that is the truth.
