Couples Counselling

A Life Logic

We provide a safe, nurturing space for both partners to communicate openly and work collaboratively towards understanding one another, strengthening relationships and resolving conflicts.

Happy couple after couples counselling

Every relationship has its challenges, and a third-party perspective from a trained psychologist can give you and your partner a greater understanding of how to generate optimum resolution, improve communication, increase understanding, and minimise conflict. This will increase the quality and strength of your bond. A relationship does not have to be troubled in order to benefit from couples counselling.

Our approach to couples counselling

Ruane J. Lipkie, the founder of A Life Logic, has over 28 years of experience as a registered psychologist. Five of these years were spent working for Relationships Australia, and over this period, Ruane honed her skills and implemented methods and strategies specifically developed to improve many types of relationships. Above all else, Ruane’s approach to counselling focuses on understanding and compassion. Ruane will work with you and your partner to strengthen your relationship and devise strategies for conflict management, greater intimacy and clearer communication (using methods drawn from a range of proven psychology models).

Whether you and your partner have been together for weeks, months, years or decades, couples counselling can benefit your relationship in several ways. These improvements include, but are not limited to:

  • Improved communication
  • Development of tools and strategies to improve relationships and manage conflict
  • Reduced frequency of arguments
  • Enhanced understanding of self and each other

The three C’s of a solid relationship

Three of the most important aspects of a successful and solid relationship are:

  • Communication
  • Compromise
