Maureen Theberge, MACP

Registered Psychologist

In T3A 2Z3 - 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.

Working with relationships, I respect each person's perspective and encourage both of you in the process of discovering how you can be more effective as partners in building a better life together. However painful your conflict or disconnection may be right now, there is room to develop interest and skills to enhance the relationship and work together to deal with challenges you face. How we work together depends on your goals and unique circumstances. We will develop a process of counselling which recognizes and values each of you and supports the building of a central, meaningful partnership.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 3C5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Val Kendall, Ph.D., M.A., Dip. Ed., C.C.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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

Lynne Goertzen, MA, CSAT, CMAT, RRT

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

I work with couples (married, common-law, or dating, heterosexual or same-sex) to enhance relationships and build connection. I have training in, and utilize, a wide range of interventions and strategies from emotion-focused therapy, Gottman's couples therapy, CBT, among others. I can help you improve the quality of your relationship, consider alternative perspectives, communicate your requests and your caring to your partner, learn and practice effective problem-solving, and co-construct your future. 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.

Registered Social Worker (AB., BC.,MB.)

In T3H 3C8 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

In relationships, there are times for couples to be together and apart. Sometimes the dream and aspirations that you first shared and you have changed. Whenever possible, conflict management approaches ranging from negotiation to mediation are preferable. These methods often require you to communicate with each other. At common law, settlement privilege is a rule of evidence that protects communications exchanged by you as you try to settle a dispute. It applies even in the absence of statutory provisions or contracts clauses concerning confidentiality [See, i.e. Union Carbide Canada Inc. v. Bombardier Inc., [2014] 1 SCR 800, 2014 SCC 35 (CanLII)]. We are pleased to discuss conflict management options with you towards bringing about a win/win situation for all concerned.

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Are you an emotionally-intelligent couple, or do you allow your negative thoughts and feelings about each other to overwhelm the positive ones? Let Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) make an innovative assessment of your relationship that will give you an in-depth analysis and inform you as to what it will take (effort and change required) to reach your goals. Dr Mervin’s contemporary therapy approach exposes the myths of outdated methods of couples counselling, and explores post-modernity models that work for you.

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?

Creating stronger relationships through the research- based Gottman approach. Couples who wish to develop a deeper awareness and connection in their relationships will benefit in using E- Counselling to enhance communication and bonding.

Couples Counsellor

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2P 3N3 - 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.

Do you or your partner suffer from social anxiety and it's affecting your relationship? Social anxiety is a fear of negative judgment from others and it can lead to reduced levels of intimacy, suppressed emotions, feelings of isolation and loneliness and lack of communication. If one or both of you feels anxious socially, your relationship may be suffering too. Contact me for ways in which you can move past social anxiety to a fuller, intimate, richer, relaxed more authentic relationship.

Robert Hammel,

Registered Psychologist

In T3A 2V7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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

Here at Virtuous Circle Counselling, we offer in-person and virtual sessions to couples in need so that they can find their way to a healthier future.

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.

Registered Counsellor

In T2T 2M1 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Being in a relationship can be difficult, particularly in a culture that has become increasingly individualistic. We fall into unhelpful relational patterns that leave us feeling angry, indifferent, or ashamed. We inflict emotional pain on our partners and we don't even understand why we are doing it. But it doesn't have to be this way. Using aspects of relational life therapy, internal family systems and more, we will go through a process of healing, designed to shift the relationship toward greater understanding, love, and connection.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Relationships can be difficult. Whether you wish to overcome a problem or simply improve your relationship, couples counselling can really help. I have 16 years of experience counselling couples. Many of the issues that can arise in a couples relationship may not even be of your making. We often learn flawed modes of communication, behaviour and attachment from our family or origin. For example, if you have never seen or experienced anyone setting boundaries you won't know anything about them. So, it is not your fault that you are not setting boundaries in your relationship. Reach out today for more information or to book your appointment.

Counsellors, Psychologist & Social Worker

In T2M 2N7 - 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.
