Relationship conflict can leave you feeling your partner doesn’t love you. But you each lash out or retreat because you hurt, not because you don’t love your partner! Once you acknowledge each others’ hurt, you can move from fighting to understanding to caring.

About Nanaimo, B.C.

Nanaimo is located along the Eastern coast of Vancouver Island a ferry ride from the Mainland of Vancouver, British Columbia.  A recent controversial topic is the high density real estate development and the construction of a city-funded waterfront conference centre which ran over the proposed budget.  Critics are concerned about the waterfront views and increased traffic congestion.  The present council is hard working with a few difficult city issues, having security patrol the downtown core.   Nanaimo marriage counselling is a group therapy where husband and wife commit to a joint counseling process with a values based counsellor.

The beautiful scenic setting of the Malaspina University-College brings numerous international students to the city.  The school is renowned for the jazz program and is also well known for excellent teacher education programs.  Diana Krall and Elvis Costello live on the outskirts of Nanaimo with their twin sons.  They wrote “Departure Bay” (about their Nanaimo home) which is on Diana’s 2004 album “The Girl in the Other Room”.  Nanaimo has experienced job growth in the technology sector. Christian Marriage counselling Nanaimo BC is committed to restoring love and communication to both spouses for greater joy in life.  The famous “Nanaimo Bar Dessert” originated in Nanaimo which is named for the Snuneymuxw people.
