Over the years, I have worked with couples helping them improve their relationship, prepare for marriage, amicably separate or divorce, and do so in ways that are also healthy for their children. What I call the Building Blocks of Being a Couple, I help couples explore these aspects of their relationship: Acknowledging each other’s perspectives, Learning about the meaning of behaviours, Exploring the effects on emotional well-being, and Co-exploring stressors that are impacting the relationship. Building a healthy relationship includes: Improving communication, Working together as a team for problem-solving and a healthy family life, and Living with joy, intimacy, harmony, and love.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 0J3 - Nearby to Calmar.

Relationships need care and attention. When our relationship goes off the rails, it is hard to feel connected to feelings of joy, love, and enthusiasm. Each individual in a partnership contributes to the relationship’s health. When you come for couples counselling support, I work for your relationship, and address any individual behaviours that undermine its well-being. I help you find ways to clarify issues, communicate effectively and reconnect.

Love is the most mysterious of truths; therefore, to discover the mystery of love one has to acquaint themselves with truth. Relationships in general, but love relationships in particular (because of the greater physical proximity, psychological intimacy, and emotional intensity) will inevitably reveal you back to you. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that the purpose of relationships is to find out who you are, but the possibility of ever coming in contact with you and seeing you for what you are would be inexistent without relationships. This is because the way we first come to recognize ourselves is through the other.

Couples Counsellor

Linda Tilley, M.Ed, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T5G 0Y5 - Nearby to Calmar.

When faced with the challenges of everyday life, a relationship that began as loving and nurturing can start to feel draining and toxic. Instead of validating and strengthening each other, partners engage in a power struggle. It should not be surprising that this power struggle leads to loneliness rather than security, and to a loss of intimacy. In order to re-build the relationship, each partner needs to learn to take risks, to communicate directly, and to be clear about their needs and expectations in the relationship. In couple counseling I help couples to move towards more direct communication and resolution of old hurts so that safety and intimacy can be restored.

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 2L9 - Nearby to Calmar.

We are the biological product of our parents, but are no less the emotional product of the families we come from. By better understanding the hurts, fears, and insecurities, the roles, habits, and patterns that we have brought into our romantic relationships, we are permitted to give - and get - the most out of them. By better understanding ourselves and our partners, we open up communication, foster mutual respect in relating and stronger attachment, and find that collaborative solutions to couples issues are easier to find.

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Calmar.

I often work with couples who are struggling in an effort to develop effective communcation, express feelings appropriately, overcome infidelity, deal with parenting conflicts, address unresolved issues, establish more of a connection with one another, adjust to various life transitions (such as having a baby), and deal with day-to-day struggles (such as housework). I use a variety of techniques to address these difficulties, with the ultimate goal of establishing a sense of goodwill and connection, so that each partner has empathy and support for the other, and they can create a sense of being a true team as they navigate life together.

Loussa Counselling Centre, Therapists

Registered Psychologist and Counsellors

In T5J 3R8 - Nearby to Calmar.

Couples counselling is the process of counselling for couples to gain effective tools in transcending repeating patterns of distress in their relationship. We approach therapy with the clients as solution focused couples therapy. Solution focused therapy supports the belief that change is constant and inevitable and the approach does not focus on the past, but instead therapy will focus on the present and the future. The counsellor uses techniques to invite the client to envision their preferred future relationship with their partner and then the therapist and clients start setting goals to move towards it whether these are small or gradual steps taken together by the couple and counsellor.

Michael Handman, Ph.D
Couples Counsellor

Michael Handman, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

In T6C 2C8 - Nearby to Calmar.

In couple counseling I regard the clients both as two separate individuals as well as a unit. I am aware that they each bring their own fears and expectations to counseling. Together we focus on understanding the development of the problems and and the length of time these issues have been part of their relationship. Often the issues are related to lack or inappropriate communication. Using empathy and compassion and various therapeutic techniques I help the couple develop positive ways of dealing with each other in a safe environment. However, at times, we come to the conclusion that separation may be healthier for both and I help them through this very difficult process.

Emma recognizes that relationships are unique and complex, and that life changes quickly leaving relationships vulnerable.

Emma uses a non-judgemental, neutral approach and focuses on enhancing the couples' attachment, strengthening security and trust. Emma facilitates changing unhelpful patterns into ones that are supportive and allow the couple to work together. Emma helps partners identify their own needs within the relationship and how these can be met. Therapy may also address intimacy, communication, conflict resolution, boundaries, & parenting.

When two people come together, their individual beliefs and expectations form the background of what could eventually become a committed relationship. Couples therapy at Karunia helps couples communicate effectively their personal stance to each other. From there the couple can work on their common goals and strategies to work together effectively in their daily setting. Are you frustrated with your partner's behaviour? Hurt by expectations in the relationship? Unappreciated by your spouse? We can work with you to clarify what is most helpful to you and how this can benefit you both as a couple.

It is within our relationships that we experience the most joy and the most pain. Most relationships begin with a deep connection and people anticipate a future that continues to be passionate and fulfilling. It is inevitable, however, that disappointments and misunderstandings arise. Learning to communicate in an effective way that bridges differences and leads to respect and understanding are essential to a happy relationship.

Shift Psychological, R. Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T5N 1R7 - Nearby to Calmar.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Calmar.

You aren't supposed to get along all the time. My approach to couples work is not to erase the differences or the conflict, rather it is to create healthy discussion around healthy conflict. As different people, you should have different perspectives and as a couple, you are the strongest when those perspectives cover and support each other's areas of weakness. Counseling is more than just improved communication. It is improved understanding... of each other and yourself. It is about recognizing patterns in the relationship and learning to react to those patterns differently. You aren't supposed to get along all the time. But you should also be able to disagree without damage.

Priya Bains, M.A.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

In T5N 3W6 - Nearby to Calmar.

When working with couples, my focus is the "relationship". It is my goal to understand the relationship that two people have created; to explore what works and does not work in the relationship. My focus is to create awareness for a couple as to how they maintain and reinforce the existing relationship patterns that may not necessarily work. A new way of relating can then be formed once the relationship is understood. The goal in couples counselling is to create Intimacy in a relationship, yet this can only be formed with safety and vulnerability.

Registered Psychologist

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Sometimes our experiences from relationships in the past, including our own families, can make this even more difficult. It can be hard to love someone when resentment, fear, anger, and confusion stand in the way. As a couples/relationship therapist its my role to help your sort out these concerns and find more effective ways of communicating so that you might be able to love and care more freely with greater trust and openness.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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?

In T5R 3K2 - Nearby to Calmar.

I have a significant caseload of relationship therapy clients. I am comfortable with essentially any type of relationship taking place between consenting adults. I accept the orientation(s) of the parties to a relationship, and am as a rule able to come from there. If I have a bias, it is to preserve the being of the relationship, the "we" that emerges when one and another form a bond. My bias notwithstanding, I am able to assist parties to a relationship to achieve a more peaceful separation/termination when that is their choice.
