Lynne Rolfe Counselling Services

Safe, compassionate environment for the promotion of wellbeing

Counselling can assist individuals, couples and families to improve their relationships.

Lynne Rolfe Counselling offers Family and Relationship Counselling as well as a range of specialist counselling services. My main counselling services are face-to-face (within south-eastern metropolitan Melbourne and West Gippsland), but I also offer telephone counselling for people in rural and remote areas of Australia.

Family and Relationship Counselling

Counselling can help a couple to:

  • understand the relationship they have
  • discover why they chose each other in the first place
  • find out what they wanted from their relationship and from each other
  • understand how they contributed to whatever their relationship has become
  • discuss what they feel about each other now
  • discuss what they are prepared to do to make it work.

Counsellors do not make judgements on who is right or wrong, nor do they tell clients what to do.

Counselling for Separating/Divorcing Couples

Counselling programs also help people who are separating and/or getting divorced, deal with their grief and anger and to let go, so that they can move on with a new sense of purpose. This means discussing:

  • how relationships change
  • how to manage grief
  • what is the real value of anger
  • what real acceptance is and what it enables us to receive
  • discover a pathway for your separation
  • learning to be single
  • being able to consider moving on onto a new relationship.

Counselling and working through the problems of separation with someone who has no involvement or investment in the outcome can help people get through this difficult time. As a result, many people move on with their lives to live happy, fulfilled lives after a relationship breakdown.

Counselling Procedures

Normally counselling starts through an evaluation process. A number of decisions need to be made by both you, as the client, and me as counsellor. I will need to decide if I am able to provide you with best possible service to meet your requirements and you have to decide if you are comfortable with me. We both need to agree on your goals for counselling and how best to achieve them.

After an initial evaluation, and should you choose to continue, I will be able to offer my initial impression of what counselling will involve. Counselling generally involves commitment and it is your right to choose your counsellor carefully. If you have any doubts about me as your counsellor I will be happy to discuss these openly with you and, if necessary, help you to make an appointment elsewhere.

If you choose to continue I will normally schedule weekly one hour sessions with you though at a mutually agreeable time. The number of counselling sessions required will be dependent upon your situation but this can be discussed as part of the initial plan which is reviewed with you after evaluation.
