In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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....

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

In T2T 0A1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW
Couples Counsellor

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2P 3N3 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Robert Hammel,
Couples Counsellor

Robert Hammel,

Registered Psychologist

In T3A 2V7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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

Farah Kurji & Associates

In T3M 0N1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

The connection between two people can be incredibly powerful and when there is pain it can be incredibly devastating. Committing to work in a relationship can have many benefits including better communication, quality time, learning what your partner needs and how you are uniquely positioned to meet those needs, building trust, learning the pillars of a successful relationship between you and your partner - it's always a pleasure to work with couples and remind them that the young love they once had for each other is merely the beginning - there is an even stronger and deeper love you can flourish in together when you learn how. While I am a Gottman Certified therapist I also use EFT as well

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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?

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Philip Starkman, MSW, RSW

Registered Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

Loving, successful relationships need to be carefully and skillfully nurtured in the following five areas: Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Sexual, Financial. Couples who are ready to do ongoing work on their relationships are richly rewarded with a loving, meaningful and joyful life together. Committed relationships that have the possibility of morphing into long term relationships benefit greatly by being guided by the Gottman research on relationships as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Premarital Counselling prepares a couple for a new stage in their relationship by identifying potential areas of conflict and strength and developing tools to create a strong foundation.

In T3H 3C8 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.
