No relationship is perfect, and therefore couples may seek relationship counselling as a start to healing their commitment to eachother. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple, employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Helping couples involves identifying and reconstructing patterns of communication, conflict resolution, and decision making. Getting couples to work together is the main goal.

Couples counselling is the process of counselling for couples to gain effective tools in transcending repeating patterns of distress in their relationship. We approach therapy with the clients as solution focused couples therapy. Solution focused therapy supports the belief that change is constant and inevitable and the approach does not focus on the past, but instead therapy will focus on the present and the future. The counsellor uses techniques to invite the client to envision their preferred future relationship with their partner and then the therapist and clients start setting goals to move towards it whether these are small or gradual steps taken together by the couple and counsellor.

Over the years, I have worked with couples helping them improve their relationship, prepare for marriage, amicably separate or divorce, and do so in ways that are also healthy for their children. What I call the Building Blocks of Being a Couple, I help couples explore these aspects of their relationship: Acknowledging each other’s perspectives, Learning about the meaning of behaviours, Exploring the effects on emotional well-being, and Co-exploring stressors that are impacting the relationship. Building a healthy relationship includes: Improving communication, Working together as a team for problem-solving and a healthy family life, and Living with joy, intimacy, harmony, and love.

We are the biological product of our parents, but are no less the emotional product of the families we come from. By better understanding the hurts, fears, and insecurities, the roles, habits, and patterns that we have brought into our romantic relationships, we are permitted to give - and get - the most out of them. By better understanding ourselves and our partners, we open up communication, foster mutual respect in relating and stronger attachment, and find that collaborative solutions to couples issues are easier to find.

When working with couples, my focus is the "relationship". It is my goal to understand the relationship that two people have created; to explore what works and does not work in the relationship. My focus is to create awareness for a couple as to how they maintain and reinforce the existing relationship patterns that may not necessarily work. A new way of relating can then be formed once the relationship is understood. The goal in couples counselling is to create Intimacy in a relationship, yet this can only be formed with safety and vulnerability.

I provide couples counselling based on the Gottman Method (Ihave currently completed Level 1 and 2 o this certification). In sessions, couples will learn to manage conflict and build a healthy bond with their partner. I also utilize techniques from Emotion-Focused Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Interpersonal Neurobiology. Gay, lesbian, and transgendered clients are welcome.

Relationships can be very difficult and sometimes feel hopeless. They are often the source of our greatest joy and our most pain. If people are willing to grow and change relationships can be tranformed and distress can be turned into happiness. Often couples find it hard to really listen to each other, which leads to misunderstandings. In counselling couples have the opportunity to share their perspective in a controlled enviornment enabling them to get past defensivness and move to listening, understanding and healing.

In couple counseling I regard the clients both as two separate individuals as well as a unit. I am aware that they each bring their own fears and expectations to counseling. Together we focus on understanding the development of the problems and and the length of time these issues have been part of their relationship. Often the issues are related to lack or inappropriate communication. Using empathy and compassion and various therapeutic techniques I help the couple develop positive ways of dealing with each other in a safe environment. However, at times, we come to the conclusion that separation may be healthier for both and I help them through this very difficult process.
