Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1J5 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

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

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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....

Couples Counsellor

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

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3H 3B8 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

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.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction. The frustrated partners of addicts often despair when communication efforts and sincere efforts to help fail. It is critical for addicts to receive the rehabilitation they need, but without counseling for their spouses and partners, the addict will not return home to a healthy environment. At Valiant Recovery, we offer couples counseling and individual counseling for the spouses and partners of clients who need help processing the impact of addiction, and who are ready to embrace change moving forward.

Registered Psychologist

In T3E 7J4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Glenn Rau, M.Ed., R Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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 ....

Susan Leslie, M.Ed, R.Psych

Counselling Psychologist

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

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.
