Stepfamily Counselling

Heike Berens Relationshop Coaching
Life is not the way it’s supposed to be, it’s the way it is.

The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. – Virginia Satir

Stepfamilies are unique and so are the challenges faced by all family members. Even the best of intentions are often not enough to conquer those challenges.

I have been training and working with Stepfamilies Australia now for a number of years and still run the highly successful couples courses “Making Stepfamilies Work” here in Melbourne.
If you are in another part of the world or can’t make it to one of the courses, I can lead you through one-on-one sessions based on the course face-to-face or by phone or Skype. 

During a typical session there will be some stepfamily education and together we will explore the different roles in a stepfamily such as: how to maintain a healthy relationship with your partner, finding your place in an established family system, past histories and their impact on relationships, dealing with blame and creating new family memories and traditions.

Most people that face a stepfamily scenario have high hopes and the best of intentions for their relationships to work out within a new blended family, as an “instant” parent or one where an ex-partner has re-partnered and children are part of two families now.

Experience has shown that more support and information is needed to meet the unique challenges in those family situations. Stepfamily Counselling provides a setting for support, interaction and education involving a range of issues faced by people in stepfamilies. Together we explore what it means to be in a stepfamily and together we find strategies to enjoy your relationships.

If you are a group of several couples in a stepfamily scenario in the Melbourne area and would like to experience your own “Making stepfamilies work” course, contact me to find out more. 

Spiritual Divorce Coaching has also been extremely successful with clients facing a blended/stepfamily scenario. Read more here.
