Couples Counsellor

Marcey Heschel, B.A., M.A.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3H 3B8 - Nearby to Balzac.

I will work with couples to discover breakdowns in communication and put in place the scaffolding necessary to create more healthy patterns. Partners must be willing to go deep and re-connect as friends first and foremost. Learning to listen is a key part of this work as we often listen only to respond or to argue. Listening to understand someone else is a skill that can transcend relationships. We don't need to agree with someone in order to understand where they are coming from. Often couples need a safe space and a mediator to be able to communicate effectively. Practice and commitment to result in incredible re-connection.

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Balzac.

I offered structured and effective methods for working with couples whether the goal is to improve the relationship or successfully separation. I use assessment tools that highlight what is working and not working in troubled relationships where couples want to stay together. Strategies to target problem areas are chosen and practiced in sessions and at home. By improving communication skills, conflict resolution skills and deepening couple intimacy, couples are able to feel more successful in their relationships. When there is closeness and comfort in our most important relationships it can positively impact our overall wellbeing.

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Balzac.

Many of the couples I work with have difficulties that result from poor communication skills. The quality of a relationship and how valued and cared for each member feels is often a direct connected to communication. Couples benefit from exploring their individual needs and how to communicate these to each other in ways that create understanding and connection.

Joshua Adams, M.A., B.Sc., B.RS., R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 0S6 - Nearby to Balzac.

Most relationships and marriages begin wonderfully! Unfortunately, many gradually decline. It does not have to be this way--there are methods and tools which can be learned and used which can help couples develop stronger friendships, resolve conflicts through understanding each partners dreams beneath the conflict, and eventually, develop meaningful and mutually authentic shared meaning. I use the Gottman Method for couples therapy which is evidence-based.

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT
Couples Counsellor

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to Balzac.

Most people want communication skills. Granted, those are needed but improving a relationship, increasing connection and intimacy, and navigating difficult conversations around areas of differing opinions involves yourself - you are your most valuable ally in any relationship. Understanding yourself, your beliefs, reactions and having ways to 'show up differently' in the relationship are your best bet to feeling better about your relationship, no matter what aspect you want to work on. Through my therapy techniques, I invite you to understand yourself in relationship as well as learn more effective ways to know and be known, the incredibly courageous work of intimacy.

Couples Counsellor

Cathryn Hanssen, Psy.D., CSAT

Registered Psychologist

In T3E 7J4 - Nearby to Balzac.

Couples bring different sets of experiences into a relationship, with each person having their own needs and belief systems. When working with couples I allow each person's perspective to be heard. Communication and understanding are very important factors in a healthy relationship. Often when problems occur it is because communication breaks down - strengthening this aspect of the relationship as well as the connection between both partners are important focuses in my work with couples.

Sara Jungen, Psychologist
Couples Counsellor

Sara Jungen, Psychologist

M.A., R.Psych. - Registered Psychologist

In T2L 1L1 - Nearby to Balzac.

In a time and place where over 50% of marriages end in divorce, it is to be expected that couples need support in their relationships! Research indicates that couples often wait as long as seven years before seeking professional help. Don't delay, couples counselling can teach you new ways of communicating, so that you truly feel heard; can teach you ways to reconnect with your partner, and to stop replaying old arguments and other negative patterns.

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Balzac.

Dr. Val helps couples appreciate what they've got that's going well, and do more of that, but also, what's pulling couples apart? How realistic are the childhood dreams you had for expecting a knight in shining armour or a princess so divine. Dr. Val helps couples to love the unlovable, realize that the human race is fallible, define for themselves what is really love and how they can communicate that to their partner and why it's worth the effort.

Working with relationships, I respect each person's perspective and encourage both of you in the process of discovering how you can be more effective as partners in building a better life together. However painful your conflict or disconnection may be right now, there is room to develop interest and skills to enhance the relationship and work together to deal with challenges you face. How we work together depends on your goals and unique circumstances. We will develop a process of counselling which recognizes and values each of you and supports the building of a central, meaningful partnership.

Psychologist / Psychologue

In T2T 2B1 - Nearby to Balzac.

Couples Counselling All couples are faced with challenging times (e.g., stress, work, parenting, infidelity...) that makes the individuals worry or even question the relationship. Sometimes a couple can get stuck in circular repetitive arguments that never seem to go anywhere. Before you know it, you are arguing about everything and anything. Such an environment creates constant frustration but can also be a source for change. For more information or to set up your first appointment, you can visit my website at www.Verlyne.com

Through couples therapy you can learn to improve your relationship, work through past hurts, and move towards the relationship you desire.

Supporting Wellness Psychological & Family Services

In T2H 0M2 - Nearby to Balzac.

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Couples therapy can help address areas of difficulty such as communication, being able to relate and support one another, intimacy, demands of work and family, and understanding the differences between one another. By learning how to effectively address these areas a relationship or marriage can develop into a secured trust and friendship. Couples therapy is a unique way to talk to one another with the support of a counsellor. This type of mediation can help to support the process of change by redirecting old habits and creating new ways to embrace and support one another. Creating new patterns, allows for powerful outcomes.

I can help you improve the quality of your relationship, consider alternative perspectives, communicate your requests and your caring to your partner, learn and practice effective problem-solving, and co-construct your future. In our work together, I will also ask you to practice skills at home and perhaps do some reading as the work and benefits of counselling occur largely between, rather than inside, sessions.

If you're putting your marriage and future on the line, make sure you get the best counsellor you can find, one that's PRO MARRIAGE AND COMMITMENT.

In T2E 2Z6 - Nearby to Balzac.

One of the biggest problems with marriage counselling today is that counsellors use methods that haven't been proven effective by research. Many marriage therapists have worked with systems of therapy that they thought would be effective, but unfortunately they are not. This can then leave couples feeling like 'its them' when really it's just the therapy. Both Jennifer Watts & Dr. Patrick Keelan use Gottman-based marital counselling, which is based on 40 years of research and is proven to yield results.

Therapist/Counselor (MSW), Hypnotherapist & HypnoBirthing/HypnoMothering practitioner

In T3A 0Z9 - Nearby to Balzac.

Relationship can be one of our greatest strengths and sources of support. What happens though with our relationship becomes a source of hurt, anger and disappointment? I believe in the ability of relationships to survive and even thrive in the long term. In graduate school I studied and identified some of the key traits that 'successful' relationships have. Through counselling I help couples to improve their communication, address hurts, identify their hopes and come up with a plan of how to improve their relationship. When two people are willing to do the work in takes to improve the relationship, positive change will happen and I'm here to help.

Sherri Shergill, CCC, MA,

Registered Certified Canadian Counsellor

In T3C 0J5 - Nearby to Balzac.

Communication is key to any successful partnership, whether it be romantic or business. The ability to be honest and kind in what you are saying, while also being open to hearing truths or other people's experience and feelings sounds simple, but is tough. I work with couples to acknowledge that the "relationship" between themselves is a pot they both put into and take from. I work with the couple to see what they are adding (positives) and what they may be taking away (negative) to the relationship and how to find a balance, trust and harmony in their interactions and ultimately in their relationship.

Susan Leslie, M.Ed, R.Psych

Counselling Psychologist

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Balzac.

Being in a loving, caring relationship is one of the most desired life experiences. My specialty is helping couples recapture or create this. See FAQ on my website. Early on in the infatuation phase communication seems so easy. You feel special and understood by your partner. Overtime you may begin to feel misunderstood, taken for granted or unable to reach your partner. Disagreements become frustrating and repetitive. It is hard to know what to do. The good news is that there are newer and powerful advances in couple therapy that offer ways for real communication to become normal. Please contact me to experience a change in your relationship. I am happy to help.
