Michael Handman, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

In T6C 2C8 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

She takes a sex-positive approach and is genuinely non-judgemental. She will work with you and your partner to help identify your relationship goals and guide you towards achieving them.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Tom Burton, CTA, RTC, MTC

Certified Transactional Analyst and Master Therapeutic Counsellor

In T6E 1J9 - Nearby to Nisku.

I love doing couples therapy. Its exciting to see changes happen right in my office. I use the Bader-Pearson developmental approach. Every couple goes through several relationship stages, from a honeymoon phase, through disillusionment, to synergy. Conflict and anxiety is natural, but many couples get stuck repeating a hostile-dependent cycle or a conflict-avoidant pattern. I offer tools and a road map to help couples find their way through these stages. It is hard but rewarding work. My couples' sessions are normally one and half hours.

Paul Sussman, Ph.D., L.Psych.(AB), L.Psych.(GA)

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

In T5R 3K2 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 2L9 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

Registered Psychologist and Counsellors

In T5J 3R8 - Nearby to Nisku.

Couples counselling is the process of counselling for couples to gain effective tools in transcending repeating patterns of distress in their relationship. We approach therapy with the clients as solution focused couples therapy. Solution focused therapy supports the belief that change is constant and inevitable and the approach does not focus on the past, but instead therapy will focus on the present and the future. The counsellor uses techniques to invite the client to envision their preferred future relationship with their partner and then the therapist and clients start setting goals to move towards it whether these are small or gradual steps taken together by the couple and counsellor.

Couples Counsellor

Nancy Hurst, Ph.D

Registered Psychologist

In T6E 1T4 - Nearby to Nisku.

Relationships can be very difficult and sometimes feel hopeless. They are often the source of our greatest joy and our most pain. If people are willing to grow and change relationships can be tranformed and distress can be turned into happiness. Often couples find it hard to really listen to each other, which leads to misunderstandings. In counselling couples have the opportunity to share their perspective in a controlled enviornment enabling them to get past defensivness and move to listening, understanding and healing.

Couples Counsellor

Linda Tilley, M.Ed, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T5G 0Y5 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

No relationship is perfect, and therefore couples may seek relationship counselling as a start to healing their commitment to eachother. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple, employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Helping couples involves identifying and reconstructing patterns of communication, conflict resolution, and decision making. Getting couples to work together is the main goal.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T6C 0Z8 - Nearby to Nisku.

Sometimes we can lose hope in our relationships. Once this has happened, it can be very hard to stay motivated to invest in the relationship. What if... what if there was a version of reality where you are happy together? What if you could feel love for your partner again? What if you could feel loved by your partner again? What if it would require to learn a new skill? What if you didn't do this?
