Enhance your relationship with couples counselling


A relationship does not have to be troubled in order to benefit from 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 reduce conflict, generate optimum resolution and overall, increase the quality and strength of your bond.

A Life Logic approach to couples counselling

Ruane J. Lipkie, the founder of A Life Logic, has over 22 years of experience as a registered psychologist. Five of these years were spent working for Relationships Australia, and over this period, Ruane gained experience and developed specialised methods and strategies for improving relationships of all sorts. 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 a number of ways. These improvements include, but are not limited to:
