Dorion Dellabough, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8N 2C2 - Nearby to North Saanich.

It is common to hear, "the key to a better relationship is better communication." That's really not the main problem in most cases. People do know how to communicate - we're extremely verbal and expressive beings. More often than not, however, we don't like the message that's being communicated! When problems erupt in a relationship, it is more likely because there is little "relating" going on. I help couples identify their patterns, reinforce healthy communication skills, and most importantly, find ways to reconnect - to build relationship. When we are connected to another person, many issues and perceived problems cease to exist.

John Parker, MA RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9L 4L9 - Nearby to North Saanich.

John aims to create a safe, and supportive environment so that both partners feel they are truly heard and understood. Often when a relationship is in trouble, there are unmet needs and hurts which have not been addressed. John assists couples in making the space to explore and address these hurts and unmet needs. He works collaboratively with the couple to develop healthier, positive ways of communicating. Sometimes it is necessary to explore the underlying expectations and personality issues that have led to discouragement, alienation, hurt and subsequent anger. With a better understanding, and a willingness to change, the relationship can move to bringing out the best in each other.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8V 3K8 - Nearby to North Saanich.

Couples can get into cycles of negative interaction which lead to more and more pain and hurt. Through Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy couples learn to recognize their feelings and patterns of interaction, and to become more resilient and more empathic to themselves and their partner. With gentle challenge I will help you examine your own stuck places, and then to discover new ways of relating to your partner. Thus you will both shift to more positive patterns of interaction.

Couples Counselor

Patti Langlais, M.A, MPCC, CCHt

Registered Counsellor, Master Practitioner Clinical Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

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

Misha Gitberg, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

In V8N 1G2 - Nearby to North Saanich.

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.

Couples Counsellor

Guido Timmermans, MA (Couns. Psych.) CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In V9B 6R5 - Nearby to North Saanich.

If you find that you are fighting all the time, have lost confidence, want to hurt your partner, and this makes you miserable and feeling alone, you need to step back and take a fresh look. Many couples waste precious time in unsolvable power struggles resulting in broken communication and automatic negative responses. Although you may feel hopeless and don't know what to do, couples do manage to change every day. Couples have been studied extensively and this information helps us to look at where you are, to get a sense of the gaps that exist, and to explore systematically what is possible. This is often hard to do and takes time, but can also be magical and very rewarding.

Michelle Gay, M.A., RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Canadian Certified Counsellor, Teacher (BC and TESL Canada)

In V8V 3K8 - Nearby to North Saanich.

Seeking counselling for your relationship can bring you more clarity about habitual patterns, about your individual self and about your direction to move forward. I provide a safe and confidential place for you and your partner to talk to each other, explore your concerns and to be understood by each other. Sometimes this can involve learning communication skills to help you navigate conversations, tools to manage strong emotions and setting goals.

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD,  CPBC  #1666
Couples Counsellor

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

In V9A 5S1 - Nearby to North 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.

Geoff Williams, MA MSW RCSW RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor & Registered Clinical Social Worker

In V8V 4N5 - Nearby to North Saanich.

The first step with my approach to couples therapy is for us to establish rapport as you inform me of the problem that has brought you to therapy. I use a Choice Theory approach which includes defining more closely what each of you want for yourselves as individuals and the relationship as a whole. From there, we get to work on rebuilding trust in the relationship by enhancing communication skills so each of you feel listened to, heard, and respected. Then we can build on trust to establish the changes needed to restore the happiness that brought you together in the first place.

Couples come to therapy for a variety of reasons. The goal with couples therapy is to strengthen the friendship between the couple, improve communication particularly on ongoing conflictual issues and to create shared meaning and future plans together. My style is based on the Gottman couple therapy. The benefit of couples therapy is a stronger relationship based on trust and intimacy.
