Welcome to my site, Aileen Smith, Counsellor.  I have been a Gold Coast Family and Relationship counsellor specialising in MARRIAGE, RELATIONSHIP and PERSONAL COUNSELLING for 24 years.

If you have any issues to be resolved, please call me now
Available for Saturday appointments

0755 733070  or  0405 331 575

My focus is to help you.

If you find yourself here, please trust that you were meant to find the help you need.  I have worked with wonderful people for many years now and one of the most important gems of wisdom I have gleaned from this experience is that if you are not feeling happy and fulfilled in your life, NOW is the time to address the issues that are upsetting you.

When we are unhappy it is often difficult to share our innermost thoughts and feelings with those close to us we may not want to burden them with our woes; they may be part of the problem or we may feel embarrassed to disclose matters of a private nature to them. 

Whatever the reason and no matter how supportive our family or friends may be, it is often preferable to seek an unbiased listener such as a counsellor to help clarify and bring new and valuable perspectives to the situation.

Many, many people have said to me that they wish they'd addressed their unhappiness earlier and not let things go until they were past the will to try to make things better in their relationships or personal lives.

NOW is the time to TAKE ACTION to make things better.

There is only NOW and TOO LATE!

Address your situation NOW and your tomorrows will be much happier.

I guarantee it!

Find your courage and  pick up the phone. 

Call me now on 0755 733070  or  0405 331 575

You'll be so glad you did!    I CARE ABOUT YOUR HAPPINESS!




Thank you so much for literally "saving our marriage."

After being together for 15 years, married for 10 this year and having 2 kids under 5 years old we had slowly let "life" get in the way of "us"

Taking that first step and booking a counselling session was very daunting for both of us, but from the moment we walked through the door with yourself we felt at ease.  You were there to listen, did not take sides, looked at all aspects and just focused on what we did have and that was LOVE - we just needed to find it again.  You helped us regain the respect for one another and find the happiness we had let get pushed to the back whilst work/bills/kids all took over.

Thank you for your time spent with us.

Aileen has changed my life and I am forever grateful! Going to Aileen is the best decision I've ever made as it led to asking my girlfriend to marry me, which would never have happened without Aileen and our sessions.

By meeting with Aileen every three to four months, she helped me grow as a person, form positive relationships and attract good people into my life. Aileen has provided me with the tools I need to make positive changes in my life.  She has helped me change the way I look at things and understand life and ways of thinking.

When I leave a session with Aileen I always feel on top of the world.

Aileen is a wonderful human with a wealth of knowledge and a very kind heart.


Dear Aileen,

I first looked you up some 6 months ago seeking grief counselling as I was suffering with severe grief relating to my father's  diagnoses with Alzheimers some 2 years earlier, for various reasons I never followed through. 

Later this year my husband and I have been married 25 years, however, it would be fair to say in recent times our relationship had become somewhat strained, this occurred due to a combination of several factors. We were advised by our long term GP that she could sign us off to see a clinical psychologist for marriage guidance,however, due to my previous research my personal gut feeling was to see Aileen a qualified Marriage Counsellor instead of a Clinical psychologist - I am here to tell you that my gut feeling proved to be 100 percent correct!

It would be fair to say my husband and I were both prepared to "come to the table" for help, however, Aileen was able to expertly guide us back to a very happy and fulfilled marriage, and for that we are truly very grateful. We are now off to Thailand to celebrate 25 years of marriage!

PS: On a personal note, I will be seeing Aileen myself over the next few months as I am now ready to go forward with my own personal counselling - timing is everything!

Hi Aileen,

I just wanted to let you know how amazing my husband is. Since he went to see you back in April, he has become even more amazing. Whatever it was that you said to him about dealing with alcohol has certainly worked wonders.

He is so controlled now and is always considerate towards other peoples feelings (mine and and our baby specifically). He usually has just 3 beers now and only has more if we have a chat about it and where he wants it to go for the night. The next day we always wake up so happy that we had a great night together rather than an argument because he was completely wasted.

He usually chooses to drive to most events anyway especially if he knows the guys he will be with encourage him past his means but either way, i always let it be his choice what he wants to do and honestly, we haven't been happier.

Thankyou so much for working your magic again.

That 40+min drive to see you is always SO worth it. Thankyou :)

The Valuable Benefits of Quality Counselling

Counselling is your positive choice to seek guidance with a view to regain balance and happiness in your life.

Counselling provides a safe opportunity to:

       Talk freely to an unbiased, caring and respectful, trained professional about your private and personal matters.
       Clarify issues to remove confusion.
       Express your thoughts and feelings.
       Explore and face the causes of chronic or acute unhappiness.
       Make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
       Make fundamental, positive and far reaching changes for a happier you and a better future.

Understanding creates the ability to change behaviours that may be sabotaging your happiness.

With specific guidance and commitment, you CAN achieve happiness and personal fulfillment.

Whatever your goals are, so long as they are reasonably realistic, I can help you to achieve them.  Whether they are practical, professional, personal, emotional, behavioural or to do with your relationships, I can help.
