Got some lovely feedback today from a corporate client I have had for a few years; a Surf Club on the Goldie that send their staff to me.
"...thanks heaps, the staff speak very highly of you."
It is so nice that I can help their staff with stress, anxiety or relationship issues. I am a big supporter of the surf clubs because they do amazing work. I nearly drowned twice when I was young. I got caught in a rip in Coromandel, and one time as a toddler in the bay we lived in (because I couldn't swim yet). I will probably always live near a beach. (Don't tell, but I am totally hooked on Bondi Rescue.)
Ps. This is a photo I took of a Burleigh SLS tower.

As one the the busiest couples counsellors on the Gold Coast, I have noticed that there is a new trend in counselling. About half of my relationship clients are de Facto couples and I am also finding that lovers who are not living together are seeking help with their relationships too. Those who are in a long-term relationship, and are planning to be together and to eventually live together, are looking for help when they have miscommunications or a crisis in their partnership.
This is a wonderful trend to see. It was only twenty years ago that there was stigma attached to seeking help. I think that modern couples are more careful in considering their long-term plans before marriage or living together. A kind of pre-nuptial planning. Which is excellent. If couples can sort out values differences early, or plan how work, finances and raising children will work, they have more chance of having a successful partnership.
