Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

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.

Most people deeply desire a warm and healthy relationship with a spouse or partner. However it requires work and effort, and is not an easy process for either individual in the relationship. On the other hand, the benefits of the effort put in are inevitably well worth it in the long run. If you're looking to work out differences and move towards a more harmonious relationship, I can work with you to find love, acceptance and the tools that work best for you and your relationship.

In T8A 3M7 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

The context of a relationship brings much more information to the surface then if we were alone. This can be very challenging and counseling can help sort this out. Couples counseling provides the opportunity to examine things as they play out within the couple. This arrangement can leads us to see first hand the strengths we have to connect with others. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of couples issues and look forward to working with you.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Geordy Murphy, MA

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T8N 5A8 - Nearby to Gibbons.

I work with couples from a Gottman Perspective which provides a good structure for the couple. They can purchase an assessment tool that I have them do online, and then we work on goals together that are related to the assessment. I work with the couple first together and then individually for a session each and then we come back for a combined session to go through the assessment together and come up with some goals. I like having the couple learn tools in session and work on them together in session so that it provides some hands on practice with a therapist present.

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.

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

In T8A 3X1 - Nearby to Gibbons.

Men and women deserve love and happiness in their intimate relationships. It is possible to be loved in the way you desire. When I work with couples I always talk about love languages and how you can help your partner meet your love needs. I use a Gottman approach to couple counseling. My goal is to help people strengthen their relationship, build connection, learn effective conflict resolution skills and repair their relationship. Most of us do not learn important communication skills growing up, and so we need to learn them as adults, so that we can have happy, healthy and enduring relationships.

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Gibbons.

In my work I am enabling couples to resolve disagreements, or agree to disagree, without becoming disconnected or abusive. Given that different couples might need different types of intervention, the mechanisms of change vary accordingly. Therefore, in order to achieve change and enable growth, I am using an integrative approach, which I tailor to suit the needs, experiences, and personal circumstances of the couple.

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.

Working with couples is a particular love of mine. Being in a relationship that continuously grows and evolves I know the value of a good relationship. When it does not thrive it can be miserable. Having an objective outsider who is skilled in pointing out negative patterns and helping you work through hurts and grievances can often save a relationship that appeared doomed. We always need to be able to express our wants and needs and feel heard and equally we need to do the same for our partners. The latter is not always so easy but that can be where the gold is! Of course we often feel its a one way street and then different strategies have to be applied.

I utilize the Gottman method when working with couples. Couples counselling can be of benefit for most couples, whether the couple is experience high or low conflict in their relationship. My approach is to strengthen the relationship through positive interactions. Couple's counselling is about providing a safe environment to learn how to interact in a healthier, more helpful way.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T8N 1H6 - Nearby to Gibbons.

I define a couple as any two people involved in ongoing interaction. When things go wrong the relationship is unfulfilling and may be hurtful to the participants. All too often things go wrong when the individuals focus on what they want from each other and they become enmeshed in a power struggle. In couples therapy there are no “rules of engagement” but there are skills which can be developed to make the relationship mutually rewarding and personally empowering.

Registered Psychologist (Alberta, #4832)

In T5K 0J8 - Nearby to Gibbons.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I help couples heal from the wounds that prevent us from feeling safe and secure in our relationships. These wounds sometimes happened to us long before we found our current partner, and sometimes there is betrayal in the marriage. I help clients recognize how these wounds affect our emotions and behaviors in a way that prevents us from getting what we are most longing for: connection in love.

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.

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.

Does your relationship seem like its hanging on by a thread? My work with couples is solution focused and client centered. This means you will have results after leaving my office from only 1 session. Each session you commit to includes psycho educational resources such as handouts and information for you to think about while we are not directly together. During the session, I work with various counselling styles such as CBT and psychoanalysis. Couples generally find that therapy helps alleviate stress in their marriage as well as helps their relationship reach new potentials.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Are you and your partner stuck in unsolvable arguments? Does one of you tend to ‘demand’ more while the other shuts down and withdraws? Are you feeling less connected and actually adding stress to each other’s lives instead of reducing it? While frustrating, these are perfectly normal patterns of partnership and there is hope. I would be glad to help you untangle the knots, learning to team up together instead of entering battles over who is right. In doing so, we will unpack past traumas and patterns of behaviour, learning to better communicate and to be safely vulnerable in a way that stands your relationship on solid ground.
