A romantic partnership is an intimate bonding experience shared between two people. Your partner is the one you spend the most time with. The person you are the most vulnerable and open with. Conflict is inescapable but it is very important for the progress between you and your partner. Unfortunately, when the conflict has been avoided or handled insensitively, this can cause a breakdown to occur. In these cases, it is essential to seek online couples counselling right away. 

It is fairly common for romantic partners to experience hardship from time to time. In 2020, the divorce rate in Australia is 1.9 in every 1,000 with an average of 33% of married couples ending in divorce (ABS, 2020). Intimate partnerships have a major impact on our physical and mental health. Feeling disconnected from our beloved can cause decreased levels of energy, happiness, and can even put you at risk of developing diseases. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has placed a lot of pressure and stress on couples. In response to this, we are offering online relationship counselling across Australia in order to turn this around. 

How Partnerships Can Affect You?

Every romantic companionship has its own way of responding to a crisis. For some, they can get easily angered or upset by the tiniest of disagreements. Others may find themselves withdrawing from their partner, unable to share their true feelings with each other. This can cause one or both partners to feel depressed or anxious to be around each other. When a conflict finds you and your loved one not seeing eye to eye, this is the time where you might need an outsider’s perspective to step in. That’s where online marriage counselling comes in. 

There are many reasons why a couple may be feeling this way. It could be that you are having pressures such as financial or work issues. It could be that you haven’t had enough time to spend together, causing a decrease in intimacy and trust. Whatever the reason, it is important more than ever to book online couples therapy as early as possible.

How Can Online Couples Counselling Help You?

Online relationship therapy is an evidence-based form of therapeutic treatment that works to promote a healthy connection and rapport. There are many different avenues that a relationship psychologist online only can work on in the upcoming sessions. The main examples are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We also base our sessions on the Gottman Therapy method which uses a variety of strategies, in order to increase intimacy.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT can be used to treat anxiety, addictive disorders, depression, and romantic crises. It works to allow you to accept what you are feeling or thinking instead of feeling guilty. This uses a range of therapeutic tools that we’ll go over in our online relationship therapy sessions, including mindfulness and acceptance skills, in order to assist patients to start to behave in a way that aligns with their own values. ACT begins with a conversation involving the goals that the patient would like to achieve and how they are going to do this. ACT works to assist in teaching individuals how to forgive and accept feelings that affect intimacy such as insecurities and vulnerabilities. This model hopes to make sure you are well equipped to know how to handle times of distress to give you a better quality of life.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) 

CBT looks at changing the negative thoughts you may have, implementing a variety of different strategies to overcome this. This works to shape our thinking in order to help us live a better quality of life. In addition to changing your thoughts, CBT works to change negative behaviour. All these tools which we’ll use in our online couples therapy, will work to provide you with the ability to cope with your own romantic crises to understand how to better handle the situation.

Benefits Of Online Couples Therapy

Enhanced Communication

Every partnership consists of two different people, both of which have their own desires and needs. Because of this, a pair will have disagreements from time to time. When you are contradicting each other on every issue, this is the time where you might need a middleman to step in. Virtual marriage counselling experts will provide you with the tools to be able to communicate with each other effectively. Having the skill to know how to communicate with your significant other is a crucial aspect of any healthy partnership. There is evidence to make clear that couple breakdowns result from poor communication. During these online marriage counselling sessions, you will develop the core skills to learn how to speak successfully with your beloved, in communicate openly and vulnerably in your partnership. In this way, when a crisis hits you’ll know how to resolve the problem right away.

Improved Connection

During the beginning of any new partnership, it can be exciting with both significant others finding themselves spending a lot of time together. Soon after, the ‘honeymoon period’ starts to fade with people beginning to get dissatisfied in the relationship. Because of work, this may affect the quality of time that’s spent with each other. This may lead to couples finding less time to be intimate with one another or begin to find each other repulsive to spend time together. For significant others who have been together long term, it’s essential to find a balance of coming together and pulling apart as individuals. Online relationship counselling can help you get there.

What To Expect In These Sessions?

In the beginning of these sessions, both significant others attend the online couples counselling together. This is to put the partnership and connection between both partners as the focus. In another virtual marriage counselling session, the psychologist may split the partners up separately to discuss their own thoughts and feelings. During the session, the psychologist may give several exercises in order to help the two feel comfortable about talking with each other. These tasks include speaking about difficult topics, teaching techniques to develop communication skills, and analysing behavioural patterns in order to get an outsider’s perspective on the relationship. The duration of the online couples therapy session may vary based on the couple, with a crisis taking a few weeks to a few months to get an end result.  Each of these sessions is designed to build connection and communication between both partners in order to help them find themselves again.
