Renew Therapy & Counselling - Online, Calgary, Alberta T3B 5K2 | (403) 870-9987

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!

Robert Hammel,

Registered Psychologist

202 4603 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta T3A 2V7 | 403-973-2174

I employ the well researched and proven approach from the Gottman Method to help couples learn about and develop new ways to appreciate and develop greater fondness for each other. I help clients realize that truly the core of an intimate relationship is really friendship, and not necessarily the all encompassing passion and always being "in love" that popular media/culture have led us to believe that marriage should always be about. Marriages naturally wax and wane, and aren't always perfect; sometimes people fight and disagree and that doesn't always have to end in separation or divorce. There are no perfect marriages -- just ones that are good enough to make us feel happy and content

Registered Psychologist

The Healing Space, 1407 10St. SW,, Calgary, Alberta T2R 1E7 | 403 278 7305

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.

I work with couples who are looking to explore their relationships, including what is working and what is not working as well. Couples are tasked with learning to communicate more effectively, advocate for their needs more directly, and navigate their challenges more empathetically and successfully. Couples learn how to maintain each person's sense of self, as they build their preferred relationship together.

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. Whether you are beginning a relationship or wishing to enhance an existing one, therapy can help you to discover and value each other's "owners manual" , communicate more effectively, and resolve conflict in a more timely and effective fashion.

6327 Crowchild Trail SW, Calgary, AB, Calgary, Alberta T3E 5R6 | (403) 454-1290

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....

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

Are you and your partner stuck in unsolvable arguments? Does one of you tend to ‘demand’ more while the other shuts down and withdraws? Are you feeling less connected and actually adding stress to each other’s lives instead of reducing it? While frustrating, these are perfectly normal patterns of partnership and there is hope. I would be glad to help you untangle the knots, learning to team up together instead of entering battles over who is right. In doing so, we will unpack past traumas and patterns of behaviour, learning to better communicate and to be safely vulnerable in a way that stands your relationship on solid ground.

1511 10 Street SW, Calgary, Alberta T2R 1E8 | 4033979925

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.

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Couple therapy (or relationship therapy) is a related and different process. It may differ from relationship counseling in duration. Short term counseling may be between 1 to 3 sessions whereas long term couples therapy may be between 12 and 24 sessions. An exception is brief or solution focused couples therapy. In add....

I work with couples (married, common-law, or dating, heterosexual or same-sex) to enhance relationships and build connection.

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.

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.

10 Discovery Ridge Close S.W. , Calgary, Alberta T3H 5X3 | 4032499337

Relational issues are central to the struggles and challenges that people bring to therapy. Many couples just want to enhance their relationship by learning better ways of coping with stress, increasing the intimacy that they experience with one another, or learning more effective communication skills. We often get stuck in patterns that no longer work for us and they get in the way of our relationships. Couples counseling can be a proactive way of changing the way you are doing relationship. Emotionally Focused Therapy is central to the work that we do in couples counseling. Identifying patterns of communication that no longer work and incorporating new ways is key.

Couple Relationship Specialist

226 - 2505 17 Ave. S.W., Calgary, Alberta T3E 7V3 | 403 264-6175

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.

Authentic Psychology - 1530 9 Ave SE, Calgary, Alberta T2R 0S6 | 4036907482

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.

The challenges couples face, including difficulty communicating, conflict, trust issues, blended families and work rotations can precipitate significant relationship distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.
