It doesn’t matter whether you’ve just got together, been a couple for years, or are separated. Counselling can help you to communicate better, manage emotions, become better parents, or manage the end of a relationship.
If you and your significant other would like to work on your relationship, you can access the Family Relationships Counselling Service.
This service is currently only provided in the South of Tasmania.
To find out more information about the Family and Relationship Counselling Service, you can call us on 1800 243 232.
Fees for this service are adjusted according to your ability to pay.
As a guide, for every $1000 of annual family income, you will need to contribute $1 out of pocket towards each session. For example, if your combined family income is $60,000 per annum, your contribution towards each counselling session would be $60.
If you have a Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card there is no charge for this service.
We wanted a better relationship but we were arguing all the time. Sometimes we were just so mad that we wouldn’t talk at all. We were sick and tired and were thinking of separating. Because the kids were little, we didn’t have much patience or time. What else could we do? We were so unhappy and didn’t want anything to do with each other.
We really needed affordable relationship counselling, so Family Relationship Counselling really suited what we wanted. We now try to interact more positively. They helped us to act like we were on the same team, and to set aside time to talk. We built more appreciation and respect. We are now able to discuss the issues that we disagree on and we try to spend more time together.
We still have our moments, but doesn’t every couple? We’re better at working through them though, and we reckon the counselling saved us from an angry divorce. We’re more of a team now.
The Family and Relationship Counselling Service is funded by the Australian Government. Your enquiry will be reviewed and answered within 3 business days.
