Building stronger relationships..


Rich Adelaide


Hi, I'm Richard.

I've been  working as a therapist on the Gold Coast, the Gold Coast Hinterland and The Scenic Rim for more than thirteen years.  I hold a Master of Counselling degree from the University of Queensland and I am a Level 4 member of the Australian Counselling Association. 

One of the earliest signs of a relationship in trouble is the constant presence of a heightened level of conflict.  Some conflict is a normal part of any relationship -provided it is managed properly, but when that conflict causes those involved to become more and more unhappy and detached, it's time to seek help. Don't wait for a crisis to occur!

Call or text me on 0490 749 930 to make an appointment.  Alternatively just complete and return the form below.


Every situation is different and the number of sessions required will vary from couple to couple. On average 4-10 sessions are sufficient to meet the needs of most couples. 

 $80 for 60 minute session ($120 extended session) Telephone and on-line counselling $60 per 60 minute session 


Issues frequently addressed in therapy include :-

  • Conflict and Communication
  • "Stuckness" with nothing ever getting resolved
  • Seeking comfort and support outside of the relationship
  • Feeling disrespected and unappreciated
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Emotional distancing and loneliness
  • Infidelity, betrayal and trust
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Anger management
  • Grief and loss 

"Richard has a wonderful way of getting to the heart of even the most difficult issues with compassion, understanding and patience. I highly recommend his services as both a couple and individual therapist." (Dan B. Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast)


"My husband & I had many marriage counselling sessions with Richard and I cannot say enough about how thankful we were to have found him." (Rhonda M. Gold Coast)


"Following devastating discoveries concerning my husbands infidelity and financial betrayal my doctor suggested I seek counselling and I was referred to Richard. Thanks to Richard I'm able to enjoy life again." (Judy J, Brisbane)


*I went to see Richard not knowing what to do with  my relationship as well as  the individual issues that I was having difficulty in dealing with.   ...  I don’t know how I would be coping the way I am today with out the benefit of his help .. " ( Chris, F; Gold Coast)
