Welcome to Hills Couples Counselling

At Hills Couples Counselling we provide counselling services for couples, individuals and families.  We offer couples relationship therapy, intimacy training, discernment counselling, separation and divorce guidance and infidelity repair. 

Our suite of services includes highly detailed, in-depth relationship profiling and analysis via multi-level assessment tools, encompassing key areas within your relationship. We boast an array of profiling tools, including Prepare Enrich Inventory and Assessment, the Gottman Method Couples Checkup, and our own Hills Couples Counselling customised CHN inventory. 

Initial consultations are about discovering what has led you to your present relationship dynamic and how we may be able to equip you with the correct tools to enhance, repair or revitalise your relationship. In most cases, it takes quite some time to reach a level of discontent where you seek out help and it is implausible to believe that years and years of disconnection will be resolved in one 60 minute session.   Couples counselling is a process of peeling back layers and breaking down walls to allow you to reconnect.  Most couples require an absolute minimum of 3 sessions. 

All sessions and programs are designed to offer transformative solutions in relation to areas where there may be unrest, confusion, resentment and long-term conflict. 

After profiling, we are able to offer comprehensive take-home strategies and exercises to restrengthen and rebuild those areas in which you may be experiencing difficulties.

With our many years of Clinical experience, we understand that there is no one therapy that is suited to all couples. Hills Couples Counselling provides the most up to date and highly regarded therapies to ensure you receive a personalised therapy model, based on the unique challenges assessed during the various profiling. 

As expert relationship therapists we are also able to offer our UNIQUE and popular  LOVE DOCTORS Counselling sessions.  This highly regarded therapy will see you working Couple to Couple, with both Vicki and James in your sessions.
