    Jeanne is a Clinical Psychologist with many years’ experience with relationship counselling in Sydney as both a counsellor and psychotherapist, first in a voluntary capacity and then as a clinician. She works with adults and young people from different cultures and social backgrounds and particularly likes to work with couples and relationships.

    Jeanne believes relationships are so important. We are born into a relationship (the mother-child relationship) and we are programmed to attach ourselves to others, to want to give and receive love, and to expect that throughout our lives. We are social beings.

    No matter how strong we are as individuals we will cope better and be more resilient if we have the support and love of one or more significant others.

    And yet in our culture, with its emphasis on individual achievement and competitiveness, there is a lot of loneliness and difficulty in forming and maintaining relationships. Many people can benefit from a helping hand in this area…She believes that most people have the capacity to find healing in themselves and to make better relationships… if only they can access the help that they need.

    In addition to relationship/marriage counselling Sydney and pre-marriage counselling, Jeanne provides assistance for porn addiction and narcissism.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    24

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    1) Listening to and respecting my clients

    2) Intuiting what might be going on for them, what they might be feeling, what might have remained unsaid

    3) Helping clients to make their own decisions and find their own solutions

    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Seeing clients respond well in sessions and start to engage with and enjoy the process, Seeing them start to talk and relate to each other in a way that feels more positive and satisfying for them. Seeing their interest in, and their love for each other begin to rekindle.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    Mary was very bitter that John (not their real names) still visited and paid money to his ex-wife and children. It created a lot of arguments and intense fights between them. In sessions she came to realise that if she continued to opposed him on this issue, she could very likely also become an ex-wife who, along with her unborn baby, would be visited by him once in a while. She decided that if she and her children were to live with him, she needed to accept him the way he was. In fact she came to realise that it was actually not such a bad quality in John that he refused to abandon his Ex and the children that he had had by his Ex.

    The help that couples receive from counselling is not always as tangible and plain as this. I know that this was the outcome for John and Mary only because I ran into John in the street a year or two after they stopped seeing me and he told me that this was the outcome and thanked me for the help I had given them.
