Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.

Priya Bains, M.A.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

In T5N 3W6 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction. The frustrated partners of addicts often despair when communication efforts and sincere efforts to help fail. It is critical for addicts to receive the rehabilitation they need, but without counseling for their spouses and partners, the addict will not return home to a healthy environment. At Valiant Recovery, we offer couples counseling and individual counseling for the spouses and partners of clients who need help processing the impact of addiction, and who are ready to embrace change moving forward.

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.

Registered Clinical/Counselling and Forensic Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T8N 6K4 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.

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?

Licensed Psychologist, Alberta and Georgia

In T8A 3M7 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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 Strathcona County.

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.

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.

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.

AnneMarie Whitton, M.Sc. (MFT)

Registered Psychologist

In T6E 1T4 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

Couples counselling presents the opportunity for two individuals to come together and share openly and honestly their deepest longings and needs. I create a space where each can share openly while the other focuses on attempting to understand while recognizing and controlling any defensiveness. Couples often have unresolved issues and working through these issues creates a space where each can see the other more clearly and less clouded by past wounds. I find that attachment issues from family of origin often impact our most intimate relationships and a part of the therapy often involves each understanding and accepting self more fully.

Couples Counsellor

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

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

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.
