Sharing your life with another is one of the most difficult yet potentially rewarding experiences life has to offer. Creating and maintaining open and honest communication (learning to listen, summarize and validate are skills that must be taught and practiced) is key to the success with relationships of any kind. I can assist in helping build strong interpersonal skills that help break down barriers and strengthen connections.

We utilize the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, taking a “research-based approach to creating stronger relationships” in both couples therapy and marriage counselling. We develop concrete strategies to help couples effectively work through their relationship issues. To assist, in our first session we complete a thorough assessment to pinpoint exactly what issues the couple needs to work on, and together come up with goals and an action plan.

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

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

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....

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Is your relationship lacking intimacy or connection? Do you feel more like roommates than partners? Are you lacking the trust to communicate your true feelings?

Leanne Frederick, BSc, MC, CCC
Couples Counsellor

Leanne Frederick, BSc, MC, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Two people's life experiences are brought into a relationship: the good, the bad, and the ugly. These unique experiences are often not part of their dialogue as they are personal, emotional and bring out vulnerabilities and fears. Still, they are often at the core of the cause of distress in the relationship. The goal of therapy is to help the couple understand why there is this negative drama in their relationship, help them see the triggers of disconnection, and validate that these stressors make sense as to why they get stuck. Through this process, the relationship can get unstuck and become more secure, be mutually accessible, and positively engaged.

Living Well Counselling Services Inc., MA, MEd, RSW

Counsellors, Psychologist & Social Worker

In T2G 1B5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Kyla Margulies, MC

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2Z 3W9 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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 Counsellor

Maureen Theberge, MACP

Registered Psychologist

In T3G 0B4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2N 1P1 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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

Nick Bohn, MA

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Open, effective communication is of central importance to a healthy relationship but is not always easy. Conflicts we find ourselves in with our partner can often leave us in vulnerable state, and the associated emotions can sometimes make it seem impossible to open up. Instead, in order to protect ourselves, we may avoid, shut down, or lash out. While I do place emphasis on teaching effective communication skills in couples counselling, I will also help you gain a better understanding of your dynamic, and help you work through their emotional barriers so you can learn to trust each other with your vulnerability, and in turn, engaging fully in a loving, satisfying, intimate relationship.

Carol Fredrek, Registered Psychologist

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 5X3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Glenn Rau, M.Ed., R Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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 ....
