Relationship Counselling Perth
Our Relationship Counselling is a process of educating couples. Our goal is to show you what is healthy and what is not, assessing where and why they fall down in your relationships, and then instilling the new skills, beliefs and actions that transform relationships to vibrancy and sustainability.
We are Richard and Helena Boyd, Directors of and Psychotherapists at the Energetics Institute in Perth. As a married couple for 20 years with a young family, our relationship is a model to our clients on how to create and maintain successful relationships. We have faced many common relationship issues but our committed relationship and healthy family is a testimonial to our work.

Relationship Therapy in Perth
We often find one or both of you are unaware that you unconsciously project unresolved childhood issues onto your partner. Likewise, you may fall or regress into a child to parent dynamic where you “make” your partner your parent, and make infantile demands to meet needs and wants that as adults you should attend to yourself. We analyse and make conscious these dynamics, and work to resolve them. Each individual is made accountable to your own issues and we work at the individual and couples level to rework your relationship into a healthy state.
We work with each person’s unique abilities and differences to love. We have each person express non-judgementally if they can receive the other person with acceptance, tolerance, forgiveness and compassion. In some cases, the truth is your relationship is over but one or both of you may not be able to express that truth. We assist with relationship separation and grieving in this situation.
