Welcome to my website Relationship Counselling South Australia. This is Dr Thomas Dellmann.
I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor ready to assist you (and your partner) to provide Relationship Counselling and advice. Couples most commonly seek help for issues such as poor communication, re-establishing trust after an affair, or sexual problems. I hold a Doctorate in Counselling and am a certified practitioner of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT for couples). Relationship Counselling South Australia is the business name of my private practice in Adelaide.
For bookings or general inquiries contact the receptionist at Botanica Medica: (08) 8271 1827 during business hours from 10-5.
NOTE: There are currently no vacancies for new relationship counselling sessions until August 2019. However, you may put your name on a waiting list, and will get a call / SMS if there is a cancellation beforehand.
You can book Online sessions via Skype or phone session if you are living in rural areas, or are housebound. Generally, I prefer to have the first session face to face so that we can get a personal feel for each other.
Testimonials from Couples
Thomas is incredibly thorough and motivated to get to the core issues with his respectful, patient and nurturing manner
Seeing to the core of emotional dysfunction in my relationship/s is frightening and difficult work, but Thomas has provided the wisdom and care that has made this possible for me. He helped me to develop the patience so I can move through to a more loving relationship with my partner. Highly recommended

It was just over a year ago that my husband and I began our couples counselling with Thomas Dellmann.
Our twenty two year old marriage was in disarray and both of us were on the brink of abandoning it. Thomas was an extremely skilled and respectful practitioner who managed to tease out our historical emotional histories both as individuals and as a couple. From here he worked with us to address the unproductive elements. Most importantly , he gave us the skills to build on the strengths and the love which was still there between us.
Counselling can be uncomfortable and challenging, but Thomas provided us with a safe emotional place and most importantly the language to work through issues. I can honestly say if we hadn’t attended session with Thomas our marriage would not be in the happy state it is today.
Testimonials for Individual Psychotherapy
Thomas has a conversational style with the purpose to question the things that are difficult. Consequently he finds a way to do something about these difficulties. I liked that he shows interest in getting to the bottom of things.
Thomas paraphrases what I say in my language rather than in a counselling way. He listens to the tiny nuances and spots my blockages and misconceptions. Likewise, he stopped me from wandering on and asked me to go back, explore and deepen how I feel when I said…
Thomas is not patronizing, as he doesn’t impose solutions and doesn’t use a cookie cutter approach. He expresses his observations with great clarity. This has helped me to think differently about things and to talk to myself differently or made common sense suggestions. I appreciate that he gave me permission to talk about things, that I thought I was not allowed to express. Previously I thought that I would be judged, or I was to scared to express things. It was important to me that he helped me to see the positive and the negative aspects of my mum, without killing the memory of her or blaming her for all my problems.google4911b2f030b25d7d.html
