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 5 hours to understand your unique situation and relationship goals.

1. Starting with the completion of an online assessment before your first appointment, the results are sent to Kristina for analysis. This online assessment takes approximately 90-minutes (completed in your own time).

2. This is followed by 3.5 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 2-hour detailed feedback session with collaborative planning for the therapy & intervention phases. This includes goal setting for your relationship and the future.
