 HCC Programs

At Hills Couples Counselling we offer dedicated programs. Programs allowing you to find your way back to love, happiness and equilibrium.

Hills Couples Counselling. Programs.

After your initial consultation and having discussed which therapy may be the most suitable for you, you may then decide to enter one of our fully customised programs. 

Undertaking a dedicated program allows you both to be fully accountable to work through the issues and challenges.  It's way too easy to have all the best intentions in the world to change things, but let's face it, intention doesn't make changes happen, accountability and actions do. 

This is precisely why we offer our clients PROGRAMS.  

Our programs are not one size fits all, neither are they formulaic therapy - nothing could be further from the truth.  Our programs are evidence based and having delivered them to literally thousands of couples we know without a single doubt they get results. 

The programs act as a mud map or a guide to taking couples through the assessed and established gaps in your relationship.  Our programs are targeted and precise.  

Clients also tell us they are fun and challenging. 

So, if you're really ready to change, if you're really ready to have the type of relaitonship that others will envy and admire - take action and book today.

Benefits of entering a Program:

Accountability.
  You've paid for it so in all reality you are much more likely to be committed to doing the work and completing the program. 

Structure.  We follow a methodical and proven formula. We don't get off track or distracted by the small stuff. 

Targeted and Specific Therapy Goals.  After assessing your relationship dynamic we can pinpoint the specific areas where you have become disconnected or conflicted.   This process then allows us to apply targeted and proven therapies to lessen or completely remove the toxic or unwanted behaviours and habits in the relationship.   

Emotional Stability.  Agreeing to weekly sessions via a program means you don't just come to therapy immediately after a fight or when in a highly emotive state.  Knowing that you have a weekly session affords clients an opportunity to recount and reflect on the week that was.  

Planned Activites and Exercises.  Part of entering into our programs requires couples to undertake weekly take home strategies, tools, exercises and activities.  Yes, some may call this homework!   This allows couples to practise and gauge how the tools work for them and their unique circumstances.  Knowing that you have an opportunity to discuss how effective, difficult or life changing the tools were in a safe and structured environment helps couples feel more comfortable with change.

Start and End Point.  We have a designated start point and likewise a dedicated end point.  We don't keep you engaged in therapy for the sake of therapy.

HCC Relationship Recovery
Program - 4 Week Intensive

HCC Relationship Recovery

4 Week Intensive Program

For couples seeking to reconnect, repair and revitalise their relationships.

The HCC Relationship Recovery Program is fully customised for each individual couple. 

It is our own program, designed and delivered by Industry Experts, Registered Counsellors and Certified Marriage Educators, Vicki and James Childs.

This program is perfect for couples seeking to:

• Reconnect and start the process of enjoying each other again. 

• Understand how disconnection, emotional check out and complacency enter a relationship and apply tools to ensure this doesn't occur again. 

• Start to view each other as individuals outside of the relationship, not simply as 'mummy and daddy' or a non sexual identity within a relationship. 

.• Reinvigorate the relationship, bring appreciation, gratitude and attraction back into play.

• Improve overall communication. De escalate fighting and conflict. 

• Practise the art of forgiveness and move forward into a better, enhanced and happy relationship. 

The Nuts and Bolts of the Sessions:

Sessions run for 60- 90 minutes over a 4 week period.  The program is best when delivered once a week at the same time over the month.

We have found that consistency is key. 

You will be issued a hard copy of the program Workbook. 

We expect you to do the work, this means completing homework tasks, employing the tools and resources you learn in the sessions. 

Sometimes the work we do with couples is uncomfortable and at times can be challenging; growth and change is seldomly comfortable, but as adults we understand that change requires honesty and commitment.  

Growth always takes place after we are challenged or moved from our comfort zone. 

Change takes time and the breaking of any habit takes a minimum of 30 days, so please be patient with yourself and your partner. 

We do the heavy lifting in the sessions, but, we also have fun and keep things as pleasant as possible. 

If nothing changes, nothing changes!
