Counselling for Couples and Individuals
Hey, how are you?
I really care to know.
Whatever brings you here, I am sure you have special others in your life. And sometimes these relationships instead of nurturing you can make you feel hurt, lonely and lost. This does not need to stay this way.
I can help you navigate these challenges and learn how to build healthy, fulfilling relationships with yourself and others.
Aly, Professional Counsellor and Coach
When life gives us lemons...
..we can turn them into fresh lemonade together.
In a completely non-judging and confidential environment, we will untangle together the situations and life stories that brought you to counselling. In couples counselling we explore each piece of the story from different perspectives and without judgement.
Couples / Marriage Counselling
Couples / marriage counselling focuses on improvement of quality in your romantic relationship, intimacy and friendship, but also teaches crucial communication and conflict management skills.
In individual counselling we explore your personal journey and the challenges on your way. I can help you cope with a wide range of personal issues and navigate you to a better place.
In pre-marital counselling we explore your hopes and dreams for the future and learn how to navigate possible differences within your couple. You can choose to attend a few sessions or take a deep dive in our LOVE FOREVER 2-day intensive workshop.
New Parents Counselling
Having a baby is a dream come true for so many couples. So why do 70% of all new parents find themselves depressed, frustrated and deeply unsatisfied in the first 3 years after the baby is born? I can help you find an answer to this and many other questions sleep-deprived, tired and overwhelmed new-parent couples might have.

Alyona (Aly) Cerfontyne
Hi, I am Aly, short for Alyona. My life journey so far has been a very unusual one and taught me many lessons - but most importantly, it showed me that the most treasured things in life are people we connect with. They are our strengths and our challenges.
I have not met a person who was unhappy in life if they had great relationships: family and friends. My life belief is the secret to happiness lies in healthy relationships: with yourself and others.
I have a Masters Degree in Counselling, Diploma of Education (Postgraduate) and Bachelor of Arts with First Degree Honours. Further, I am a Level 2 Member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA).
I speak three languages and spent most of my life outside of my home country. And most importantly, I am a mom and a wife.
