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.

In T5G 0Y5 - Nearby to Gibbons.

When faced with the challenges of everyday life, a relationship that began as loving and nurturing can start to feel draining and toxic. Instead of validating and strengthening each other, partners engage in a power struggle. It should not be surprising that this power struggle leads to loneliness rather than security, and to a loss of intimacy. In order to re-build the relationship, each partner needs to learn to take risks, to communicate directly, and to be clear about their needs and expectations in the relationship. In couple counseling I help couples to move towards more direct communication and resolution of old hurts so that safety and intimacy can be restored.

Over the years, I have worked with couples helping them improve their relationship, prepare for marriage, amicably separate or divorce, and do so in ways that are also healthy for their children. What I call the Building Blocks of Being a Couple, I help couples explore these aspects of their relationship: Acknowledging each other’s perspectives, Learning about the meaning of behaviours, Exploring the effects on emotional well-being, and Co-exploring stressors that are impacting the relationship. Building a healthy relationship includes: Improving communication, Working together as a team for problem-solving and a healthy family life, and Living with joy, intimacy, harmony, and love.

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

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.

Relationships need care and attention. When our relationship goes off the rails, it is hard to feel connected to feelings of joy, love, and enthusiasm. Each individual in a partnership contributes to the relationship’s health. When you come for couples counselling support, I work for your relationship, and address any individual behaviours that undermine its well-being. I help you find ways to clarify issues, communicate effectively and reconnect.

Emma recognizes that relationships are unique and complex, and that life changes quickly leaving relationships vulnerable. Emotional injuries, whether intentional or unintentional, can often leave issues unresolved and impact trust, emotional intimacy and security. Emma uses a non-judgemental, neutral approach and focuses on enhancing the couples' attachment, strengthening security and trust. Emma facilitates changing unhelpful patterns into ones that are supportive and allow the couple to work together. Emma helps partners identify their own needs within the relationship and how these can be met. Therapy may also address intimacy, communication, conflict resolution, boundaries, & parenting.

Love is the most mysterious of truths; therefore, to discover the mystery of love one has to acquaint themselves with truth. Relationships in general, but love relationships in particular (because of the greater physical proximity, psychological intimacy, and emotional intensity) will inevitably reveal you back to you. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that the purpose of relationships is to find out who you are, but the possibility of ever coming in contact with you and seeing you for what you are would be inexistent without relationships. This is because the way we first come to recognize ourselves is through the other.

Registered Psychologist

In T6C 2S1 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

Al Riediger, Ph.D., R.Psych.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Michael Handman, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

In T6C 2C8 - Nearby to Gibbons.

In couple counseling I regard the clients both as two separate individuals as well as a unit. I am aware that they each bring their own fears and expectations to counseling. Together we focus on understanding the development of the problems and and the length of time these issues have been part of their relationship. Often the issues are related to lack or inappropriate communication. Using empathy and compassion and various therapeutic techniques I help the couple develop positive ways of dealing with each other in a safe environment. However, at times, we come to the conclusion that separation may be healthier for both and I help them through this very difficult process.

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).

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.

In a time and place where over 50% of marriages end in divorce, it is to be expected that couples need support in their relationships! Research indicates that couples often wait as long as seven years before seeking professional help. Don't delay, couples counselling can teach you new ways of communicating, so that you truly feel heard; can teach you ways to reconnect with your partner, and to stop replaying old arguments and other negative patterns.

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 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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.
