Within the Imago framework, we identify two archetypes: the Turtle, who withdraws and contains energy, and the Tiger, who expands energy by moving towards their partner.
Marriage Counselling Gold Coast
Counselling with empathy by a qualified and caring therapist can begin the process of developing insight, self-awareness and personal empowerment. Close friends and family can sometimes help us through life's difficulties but their assistance may not always be enough.

Less than one year down the track, my life has transformed. Not only am I experiencing physical wellness, I feel spiritually enlivened and far more in tune and present with myself, others and life's precious gifts.

In the age of technology, our lives are intricately woven with devices that promise constant connection. Yet, ironically, this digital tether often leads to a disconnection within our most intimate relationships.

The sign of a healthy relationship is not that you do not fight or have conflict but is about how quickly you repair the rupture.

Tip no. 1: The Relationship needs to be your number one priority.

I have been having couples counselling with Jiselle now for a peeiod of time...she is a very astute counsellor and is very ethical and honest with extremely good skills in really effective couples counselling based firmly in the respected Imago relationship style.
I myself have worked in this area for about ten tears so any cracks in a counsellor would quickly be seen by me and all I can say is if you want to get to a healthy place with your relationship, learn effective communication skills and learn why and how you trigger each other and how to solve this go see her, do the exercises she goves and trust her to guide you to a happier more satisfying and healthy way to move forward. Although I haven't yet done her couples workshops I certainly hope to and friends also recommend this.
Jiselle has certainly gone beyond and above to support both myself and my husband and our marriage counselling and I can only give her my highest recommendation as a counsellor and as a couples counsellor...
May you find the love you want...

My husband and I did couples counselling and can't thank Jiselle enough for helping us to overcome some issues we were having. I highly recommend seeing Jiselle to help with communication and to strengthen the relationship.

The Imago modality is amazing, and Jiselle is an incredible counsellor. We have done couples counselling before, but nothing compares to Imago in its ability to get straight to the point and get you talking. Jiselle is a very thoughtful and creative person who brings a calm gravitas to the session. It has really helped us understand how my ADHD fits into our relationship. We highly recommend Innercalm Counselling!

My husband and I went to Jiselle for about 8 weeks, we had some things to overcome, learn, compromise and just needed some support. We have been together for almost 11 years and known each other for 21. With our history and bond it was hard for us to admit we needed some guidance and support, however, it was the best thing we did for our marriage and over all relationship at that point in time. Jiselle assisted us through some tangles that we had and worked with us to get through them and helped us understand what we were feeling and what we were going through. We saw Jiselle back in March April 2020. It has now been 7 months since then... I wasnt going to put a review until some time had passed and we were able to put our work into our relationship to give a true review back to our marriage counsellor. My husband and I got married 2 and a half years ago, we had stresses and mental health affected our marriage from some stressing times on my end, we were in a very difficult time when we approached Jiselle. After every single session, we were able to take home a different perspective, tools to communicate in a healthier way, listening tools and even better an appreciation to each other, which we didnt recognise at the time. Today, we are at the end of October, my husband and i are super connected, we feel like were 17 year olds in love again with a bit more maturity, we are pregnant with our 1st child and just came back from our honeymoon which we hadnt allocated the time or money prior to all of this. We are so thankful we met and stuck to our programme with Jiselle, she is amazing, makes you feel comfortable and doesnt judge any situation, if anything she sheds light and perspective over the situations. I would reccomend her 1000 times over we feel like she really helped us in a huge way and we absolutely appreciate all her time. Thank you so much Jiselle. Jess and Ryan =)

19/8/2020 - I started seeing Jiselle roughly one year ago, and I can honestly say it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made to this date. I first walked into her office beat down and extremely broken hearted from the hammering of contemporary life style and personal relationships. As frightening as it was for me to approach someone who I knew nothing about, Jiselle made me feel extremely welcomed, safe and comfortable the whole time. I was always greeted with a smile, comforts and clean, calm, peaceful surroundings. Time and money was never an issue, during hard times of Covid, she was constantly reaching out offering her services free of charge and always making sure I was okay and if times and dates suited me.
The feedback during sessions was practical and emotional, always suggesting new ways of thinking, assessing new and past relationships and improving my mental health outside of sessions (inc great books and meditation recommendations). Always empathetic and understanding of what I wanted. Was always listening and could understand everything I was trying to say internally and externally. Showed interest in what I was saying and feeling. She always checked in on my progress, but most importantly, she helped me find courage. The courage to find myself, to find a better place and help me believe I can improve my life and relationships....and I have. In summary, an investment, safe, kind, extremely educated, honest, open minded and has helped me beyond all belief and I'm now well on the way to a better place.
If you are seeking help whether it be for a broken heart, relationships with yourself, significant other or family, I couldn't recommend Jiselle enough.
The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.
