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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Kevin Fleming, Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In T1X 0L3 - Nearby to Balzac.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Couples Counsellor

Kyla Margulies, MC

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Balzac.

In my work with couples I prioritize emotional safety and honesty. We all have patterns of interacting in our relationships, some healthy and some not. In our work we will figure out what your patterns are; how you move towards and away from each other and where communication is breaking down. Together we will find new ways of interacting that create safety, trust, and intimacy in your relationship. I use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you and your partner(s) communicate about the heart of your issues. I also use the concrete tools developed by the Gottman's, and have complete my levels 1 & 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Counselling.

Couples counseling can help provide you and your partner with skills to communicate effectively, manage conflict, and create a close, loving relationship that lasts a lifetime. My counseling approach draws from two highly regarded, research-based approaches in the world; Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) based on a theory of adult love and attachment, that help couples renew or create a close emotional bond and John Gottman’s theory of what leads to a satisfying healthy relationship.

Making sense of what of the mess is an important first step towards reconciliation and hope while being heard and valued in order to share the struggles, pains, good memories and grief of potential loss. As a trained Gottman certified counsellor, we will start by giving each partner an assessment in order to specifically pinpoint the areas of strengths, barriers and opportunities. A roadmap for the couple and therapist in order to assist in finding practical solutions while uncovering unhealthy patterns of behaviours and beliefs. My goal is to bring a couple to the point of reconciliation and restoration, while instilling hope, forgiveness and renewed passion in the relationship.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Balzac.

Precious few of us are naturally equipped with adequate relationship skills. All too often we find ourselves adrift in unhappy love relationships where unresolved issues and resentments have built seemingly impenetrable walls between partners. My model of choice for couples is relational therapy. I teach the partners how to become a safe, healing and loving presence for each other, building skills that allow the partners to reconnect through empathy and compassion (and let go of contempt and anger). It advocates self-leadership (i.e. each partner takes responsibility for his/her own feelings and to understand how each partner contributes to the conflict). My concept of relational therapy end....

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 ....

Carissa Muth, BSW, M.A. (Honours), RPsych

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Balzac.

Communication is not merely talking to one another. It involves empathy, attunement, and listening, which can be difficult for many to master. It also requires awareness of each person's triggers and expectations and what might make them defensive. During couples counselling, I facilitate healthy communication between each partner by teaching skills and guiding each partner to express not just their primary emotions but their deeper feelings. I will not pick sides in the relationship but will keep the relationship as my client with the goal of restoration.

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.
