Thinking about getting married? Not the marriage type? Together learn more about yourself and the other you want to be with as we explore hopes, dreams, values, and beliefs. Master the art of negotiation and compromise in conflict, as well as the maintenance of healthy boundaries around those "big deal-breaker" issues. Couples of all types of configurations will learn about being an ally for each other as we work towards respect, love, collaborative problem solving and mutual understanding.

Many couples struggle with communication and "feeling heard". Over time a once happy and vibrant relationship can begin to decay through hurt feelings, anger, lack of attention, feeling valued, infidelity, the strain of children, childhood issues, and much more. We focus to heal the wounds of the past and rebuild the love and trust within the relationship. We work to equip both partners with a voice and ability to effectively listen and hear one another. We will work together to establish individual boundaries within the relationship, while creating a stronger and healthier connection. Our goal is to equip each couple with the tools they require for success, independent of counselling

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.

I very much enjoy working with couples as the benefits of this work are very rewarding. As a couple therapist my main task is to help couples understand the negative cycle that is formed in their relationship; help them see how they each contribute to it and how to develop new constructive patterns of communication: open, honest, compassionate, respectful, loving. Once we realize that our partner is trying their best to protect themselves from emotional pain (rather then have their mind set on hurting us), we have a better chance at feeling true and deep compassion for them, disarming ourselves and learning to find a way to contact them in love.

Being connected to our partners is a great thing – but this closeness can get so complicated! Intimate partners hold a lot of power to disappoint us. How do we get into sync, and get what we need to stay invested? It is hard to manage disappointment. We can sometimes give up too much, agree to things we don’t want – or we go the other way, and start bullying the other person. Both of those are strategies to preserve your connection. Is your strategy working for you? In counselling, I help you clarify what is going on for you, what you both want, and what you can possibly do to get there. I create a safe, easy space to check out your relationship – it may be more fun than you think!

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8T 2Y6 - Nearby to Central Saanich.

My approach to working with couples is largely attachment based. This means that I work with couples not only on the level of what is being said or not said, but also on the level of the types of attachment (and associated patterns) that couples have with each other and had with members of their family of origin, particularly the opposite gendered parent. In couples work it is very important for both members of the couple to feel that they are being heard and understood. Often this means slowing down the flow of the conversation very deliberately. I strive to help each member of the couple feel safe and understood enough to become increasingly vulnerable and intimate with their partner.

I work closley with couples dealing with a wide variety of issues. Regardless of the difficulties at hand, communication seems to always be a driving force in negative interactions within relationshps. It is imperative to me that each client feels respected, validated and safe while in couples therapy with me. I provide a non-judgemental plateform where I assist in developing a goal focused action plan for a healthy sustainable relationship.

Intimate relationships are the backdrop for intense personal learning and development! To have a better relationship with other, we often need to have a better relationship with self. I will help you and your partner be in relationship more authentically, with a stronger sense of self and differentiation that will ironically help you choose more closeness and intimacy. The relationship you desire is within reach.

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

In V9A 5S1 - Nearby to Central Saanich.

Dr Sloat's couples counselling is based on the belief that we are all in this world to be happy, and in order to be happy we must have our needs met. When in relationships, people sometimes fail to get their needs met, and when this happens there is conflict and discord. Dr Sloat helps people to clarify and articulate their needs in relation to their partners, and thus facilitates harmony between them. She does not take sides, but instead focuses on helping partners to renegotiate and/or redefine their relationships such that they become viable on both sides.

I believe couples counselling to be a healthy way to both prevent significant problems, and an important method of addressing and sifting through already challenging dynamics. Communication, intimacy, trust, respect and shared ideas, beliefs and life direction are some of what often bring couples to counselling. I am non-judgemental and objective in my work with couples. It is of the utmost importance that each person feels safe, respected, valued and able to express themselves during sessions. Strong healthy relationships add meaning and satisfaction to life. I hope to assist couples in their journey to remain connected to one another.

In V9C 1E7 - Nearby to Central Saanich.

All couples, gay, heterosexual, lesbian, or Bi-sexual are respectfully welcomed. Most frequent issues presented by all couples include sexuality, financial struggles, parenting issues and communication problems. Sexuality probably presents as the most common concern. Some issues are polyamory, impotence, lack of desire, sexual addiction, indidelity, sexual trauma and abuse and incest. Dr. Graham's clients find her easy to talk to and discussion is frank and respectful. Some couples are struggling with questions concerning whether or when to have children and infertily. Most couples have the goal to strengthen their bond but others need support to end an unhappy relationship.

Relationships can be wonderful, loving and supportive. They can also be frustrating, maddening and anxiety provoking to name a few. At any given time in a relationship each person may have a different interpretations or understanding of a particular event. Each person may feel that they have communicated clearly and are baffled by the outcome . Most people in a marriage or intimate relationship experience this dynamic at some point. Couples counselling maybe beneficial to learn step by step strategies that you can begin to incorporate right away. The goal being to move toward greater understanding, meaning and happiness. Tools that can be applied throughout your relationship.

Healthy relationships have many components: mutual respect, trust, intimacy, reciprocity, warmth, and compassion. Couples counselling is an opportunity to communicate openly with one another in a safe supportive place – a place where you can share ideas, concerns, feelings, and develop solutions and how you’ll achieve together what will enrich and improve your relationship. Change is possible! Many couples neglect to stop to ‘take stock’ of how the relationship is going and whether it is meeting one another’s needs. What’s working? What are the challenges and concerns? What would it look like if ‘things were better’? It is normal to get into a ‘rut’, experience conflict and resentment. Lives are busy and complicated and it’s not uncommon to take our...(view profile to read more)
