Registered Psychologist

In T5K 0J3 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

The duty and function of a relationship counselor or couple's therapist is to listen, respect, understand and facilitate better functioning between those involved. The basic principles for a counselor include: Provide a confidential dialogue which normalizes feelings; to enable each person to be heard and to hear themselves; provide a mirror with expertise to reflect the relationship's difficulties and the potential and direction for change; empower the relationship to take control of its own destiny and make vital decisions; deliver relevant and appropriate information; changes the view of the relationship; and Improve communication.

Couples often need a little support as they navigate the challenges that exist in every relationship. There are many complicating factors that impact the success of a relationship - children, finances, and different childhood experiences can all create a rollercoaster ride of emotions that can add confusion to the love that two people feel for one another. Learning how to communicate clearly, how to argue appropriately, and how to demonstrate appreciation and value for one another are the essential building blocks to a loving and intimate relationship that will last.

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

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

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

Priya Bains, M.A.
Couples Counsellor

Priya Bains, M.A.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

In T5N 3W6 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

Jack Lewis, R.Psych., C. Psychol., AFBPSs.

Registered Psychologist

In T8N 6K4 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Justin-Claude Dumont, BSc, MA

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T6E 4R8 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

David Buhr, M.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction.

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.

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.

Linda Tilley, M.Ed, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T5G 0Y5 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 2L9 - Nearby to Mill Woods, Edmonton.

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.
