Even couples who have weathered 50 years together report going through times of severe marital dissatisfaction. Through utilizing strategies and tools to communicate better, couples can learn to resolve or make peace with their differences. You will benefit by having a chance to practice new ways of relating to each other in session, and then taking exercises home to work on through the week. I create a safe atmosphere for each person to be vulnerable and honest about what changes you would like to see in your future, and then I help facilitate a conversation where you and your partner make small practical steps towards finding peace and happiness together.

Relationship counselling can comprise of issues related to: communication, conflict/ separation, commitment, blended family, infidelity, parenting, same sex, and more. The goal of couples counseling is to target the main concern for each or one of the individuals involved. Next, the couple will work with a therapist to identify each individual’s accountability for both positive and negative contributions to a relationship. The critical point is acknowledging ways each individual can make improvements alone and how the couple can work to progress together in the relationship. Most couples can benefit from a check-in and restructuring of wants and needs, before an intervention is necessary.

Our early experiences as children shape some of our attitudes and beliefs towards being in a relationship. Sometimes this modelling can help us in our romantic relationships, other times it can get in the way. Couples counselling can help you both recognize patterns, enhance communications techniques, and find ways to better relate to each other in warm, caring ways. Remember, it takes two to tango.

Couples often get stuck in negative patterns, or ways of relating to one another. These negative patterns can cause couples to attack each other emotionally, or worse, drift apart emotionally. It is vital to identify the emotions that drive this cycle, and through therapy, learn to create a dance that brings you close to your partner. There is great risk in being in a committed relationship, because there is no one else in the world who can hurt you as much as your partner can. But, on the flip side, there is no one else who can help you feel more loved. It is a greater risk, not to risk with your partner!

We all want to love, be loved, and connect with our significant others. Yet, it can feel daunting at times, due to repetitive relationship patterns (influenced by our childhood wounding), poor communication skills, cultural/gender differences, and inability to negotiate “me” with “we”. So be it past trauma, poor communication skills, inability to handle stress, different upbringing (thereby different ways of doing things), or sexual challenges, among other things, I help couples identify the areas/habits which challenge them, behaviors which destroy relationships, and anything else that stands in the way of them achieving an intimate connection.

Relationships are tricky and often emotionally charged. Communication plays an important role in couples relationships, but not to be discounted is the powerful role of emotions and feelings that may be unconsidered. I look forward to helping couples begin to understand themselves, the positive and negative cycles, and the process necessary to truly understand the core needs of themselves and their partner. I believe that couples often have the power to heal their relationships and even their partner when they begin to feel that their own needs are respected, and I look forward to working with you to achieve your relational goals.

Couples Counselling Most relationships will become strained at some point and will begin producing maladaptive patterns. Relationship problems are rooted in our distorted egos, insecure attachment, emotional immaturity etc., which create to the many issues that develop for couples - infidelity, financial stress, poor communication, ill health, sexual divergence, household responsibility conflicts, addictions, etc., .... or just simply growing apart. Relationships can often be restored if help is sought soon enough. A counsellor can help reorient perceptions and emotions (how we look at a situation and how we feel about it) and assist the couple in adopting conscious structural changes.
