Christine Weston

COUPLES COUNSELLOR

Christine’s intention is to provide couples with an opportunity to develop a conscious awareness of their relationship by discovering the elements that influence its happiness or its distress. Relationships do not come with a manual or handbook to provide guidance at challenging times and couples counselling can bridge that gap.

Christine helps couples explore their communication styles, psychological defences, stress responses, attachment styles,  ‘love languages’ and their psychological, emotional and physical attraction to each other; better understood by appreciating the influences of historical/childhood experiences in families of origin.

Christine’s approach to helping couples is informed by an integration of the Gottman Therapy model, Emotion Focused Therapy and Systemic Therapy. Christine’s experience as a Psychotherapist extends over 27 years, both in the Public sector (NSW Police and Women’s Health) and in private practice. She has over 11 years’ experience as a couples’ therapist. Christine holds a Bachelor in Social Science, Graduate Certificate in Psychotherapy Studies and training in Couple Therapy (Institute of Family Practice).

Clinical Registrant of PACFA – Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia. Christine is LGBTQI+ friendly.
