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.

In T2R 0S6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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. Often when we are in a face to face conversation we are thinking of our next response rather than allowing the other person to be understood. Using a secure and completely confidential web based Gottman trained counsellor will help break down the barriers of communication and improve relationship dynamics. Couples can expect more understanding, respect and intimacy in their relationship. LGBT relationships are welcome.

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.

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.

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

Over the last 12 years I have been working with couples and my passion continues to grow in this area. There are so many stressors that are placed on relationships. Oftentimes this leads to the development of unhealthy patterns in your relationship leaving your feeling stuck and disconnected with your partner. I am trained in Emotions Focused Couples Therapy which is an evidence based treatment model. This approach helps you to see the cycle between you and your partner that is preventing you both from having a secure connection. In addition, I am trained in Gottman institute Methods and trained through the Couples Institute. This allows me to bring a breath of knowledge to the therapy room.

In T2G 1B5 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.

Do you or your partner suffer from social anxiety and it's affecting your relationship?

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.

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.

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

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Leanne Frederick, BSc, MC, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In T3A 6E7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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.
