In a relationship, each member is responsible for an equal share of the dynamic. In a family, that means it splits between the amount of people, and in a couple it’s 50% created by each partner. This 50% is the result of the individual’s needs- both functional and dysfunctional. Functional needs relate to biological drives, culture, relationship goals, values, etc. Dysfunctional needs come from limiting beliefs, which are internalized in our childhood. They create needs like: the need to be in control, or the need to protect oneself. The needs, whether functional or dysfunctional, can balance each other out, creating a “stabilizer” or they can become unmet needs.

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.

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.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Tobias Mwandala, MSW, RSW

Therapist/Counsellor

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Balzac.

I perceive a couple as a group that is formed by practices/language that are used. In this context, I view a problem as ‘couple’s problem’ that is situated in the relationships/language between partners. Therefore, helping couples to address their problem(s)--I focus on addressing the language and relationship patterns that the couple has developed overtime. I use narrative and solution-focused therapy that is brief and effective. I discuss individual’s and couple’s needs, as well as relationship needs. I encourage my clients to effectively communicate their needs in a peaceable, positive and productive manner between one another.

Couples Counsellor

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.

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Balzac.

Throughout the course of any relationship there will be ups and downs. Some of these can be caused by your relationship, and others can be external and have a direct effect on your relationship. Couples counselling is not an admission of weakness or failure. In reality, couples counselling shows the courage and determination of the couple to work towards making the relationship more exceptional and even stronger than before. Couples counselling is not just for every couple experiencing a rough patch, it is simply put for Every Couple!

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.

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Balzac.

I work with couples (married, common-law, or dating, heterosexual or same-sex) to enhance relationships and build connection. I have training in, and utilize, a wide range of interventions and strategies from emotion-focused therapy, Gottman's couples therapy, CBT, among others. 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.

Glenn Rau, M.Ed., R Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Balzac.

Relationships can be measured on two levels: stability and satisfaction. Sometimes the first goal is to stabilize the relationship (like after an affair). But most of us want more than just stability: we actually want to get along with and enjoy our partner. Fortunately, there has been a lot of relationship research that points the way to the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to achieve this. I love working with couples, and seeing their dynamics improve. I know that things can get pretty bad at times, and you can feel like your relationship is spinning out of control in a negative way. It may take some time, but improvements are genuinely possible. I've worked with very young ....

For most of us, relationships are the source of some of life’s greatest joys as well as sorrows. All relationships, including romantic relationships, take a significant amount of work. Couples therapy can help improve connection, communication, and conflict management in your relationship. In my work, I combine an experiential therapeutic approach with the Gottman method [https://www.gottman.com]. Through couples therapy you can learn to improve your relationship, work through past hurts, and move towards the relationship you desire.

Relationships are both difficult and rewarding. Like most things of value, however, these intimate connections require intentional work in order to remain healthy and rewarding.

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.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Maureen Theberge, MACP

Registered Psychologist

In T3G 0B4 - Nearby to Balzac.

I offer counselling to couples who have experienced a loss and/or are facing transition. The loss of a child, family member, or friend can create unexpected stress on a relationship. Moving to a new city or country can mean the loss of a couple's supportive network. Job loss or retirement changes the dynamics of a couple which creates unique challenges. Transitioning to children moving away is another stage in a relationship which can introduce unexpected stress. I help couples mourn their losses and navigate transitions to create new meaning in their lives and in their relationship.
