Resolve your issues and learn how to create a quality relationship.

A strong secure primary relationship is fundamental to health and well-being. Yet we get no training in relationships whatsoever! No wonder we all struggle.

It is so helpful to have someone not just help you resolve your relational challenges, but also to teach you what it takes to have a great relationship. At the LoveLife Clinic, we provide effective relationship therapy and coaching.

Our Principal, Jacqueline Hellyer, and her associates, Alain Moulay and Leslie Scholl, have studied and trained to the highest level to support you to cultivate a high-quality relationship - as team-mates, friends and lovers.

You’ll find that talking to us is a liberating experience. We do not need to judge or assess you; our only agenda is to enable you to transform and grow.

Couples Counselling & Relationship Therapy

The LoveLife Clinic approach

We take a holistic, integrated approach to relationship counselling. One that is transpersonal, psychobiological, somatic, positive and coaching-based:

  • Transpersonal therapy addresses the whole person: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual;
  • Psychobiological therapy utilises neuroscience, language and biological processes to aid in change;
  • Somatic therapy enables you to go beyond your mind and feel into your body;
  • Positive psychology focuses on your strengths rather dysfunctions;
  • Coaching is client-centred, solution-focused, dynamic and brief.

When applied to this fundamentally important part of life Relationship Counselling allows you to find real meaning and fulfilment in your relationships and your life.

How relationship coaching and counselling can help you

For couples in particular, unlike most relationship counsellors, we address all aspects of relationships, including sex and intimacy. Given how important this is in a relationship, we believe it is ineffective not to address it, and strongly believe it’s why an integrated approach is so effective to helping people in all aspects of their relationship.

The clinic is LGBTQIA positive and we welcome clients of all orientations and preferences.

Our relationship counselling process; we’ll guide you through

While the process will differ depending on your particular situation, essentially, the approach we’ll take is to help you:

  • Figure out how you would like your relationship to be;
  • Work out what changes you need to make in your thinking, behaviour and life-style to enable that to happen;
  • Assist you to make those changes;
  • Along the way, bust a lot of myths, give you real information and education, provide a lot of guidance and strategy;
  • And overall enable transformation at all levels of your being.

The relationship therapy and coaching sessions can be surprisingly enjoyable and freeing. The best things in life are fun, and sex is undoubtedly one of the best things in life, so we’ll talk, we’ll laugh and we’ll lighten you up about the whole sex thing. At the same time we’ll look at you, your relationships and your life.

The most common comment clients say at the end of their first session is: "What a relief!" and "I wish I/we’d come to you a lot sooner!"
