Relationship Health Assessment
It’s time to stop the stigma around couples’ therapy.
Research shows that couples wait an average of 2.5 years before seeking help with their marital problems and that prevention is 3x more effective than intervention.
Do you think you might benefit from couples therapy now or in the future? Read on to understand more about booking a Relationship Health Assessment with Kristina and how it can help you and your partner identify areas to heal, grow, and move forward.
Kristina is a relationship and marriage counsellor based in Samford Valley servicing Brisbane Northside and further afield with online services.
Relationship Health Assessment
When Kristina starts working with a new couple, she will begin with a thorough Relationship Health Assessment over 4-5 hours to understand your unique situation and relationship goals.
1. Starting with the completion of an online assessment (about 90 minutes each, in your own time) before your first appointment, the results are sent to Kristina for analysis.
2. This is followed by around 3 hours with Kristina to understand your issues and how they have developed over time. You & your partner will meet with Kristina for the first 90 minutes conjointly, then you will see her individually for 50-minutes each.
3. The final phase of the assessment is a 1-2 hour detailed feedback session with collaborative planning for the therapy & intervention phase. This includes goal setting for your relationship and the future.

Relationship Health Assessment FAQs
What recommendations will we get out of the Assessment?
Depending on your unique relationship situation and what you are both looking for, Kristina will present a series of recommendations; these might be intensive or marathon therapy sessions with her, it might be therapy sessions with another therapist, or it may be a selection of resources, programs and workshops, or other materials.
At your Feedback appointment, Kristina will provide her recommendations and you can create a road-map for achieving your goals.
Do we get a report?
At your feedback session you will receive a Relationship Check-up Report outlining the results of the online assessments. After your feedback session you will receive this report including recommendations from Kristina tailored specifically to you & your partner and what will work best for you.
