Over time relationships can break down. Stressors enter our lives is communication becomes difficult. Loving couples get into a "blame game" of criticism, contempt and disdain; Respect goes out the window and in the end, the relationship "killer", resentment and all that it brings. If resentment begins to creep into your relationship, seek help. An experienced and trained counsellor can help guide you around the resentment "minefield", move communication to a healthy and more empathic place so that resentment turns into resolution.

Loving, successful relationships need to be carefully and skillfully nurtured in the following five areas: Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Sexual, Financial. Couples who are ready to do ongoing work on their relationships are richly rewarded with a loving, meaningful and joyful life together. Committed relationships that have the possibility of morphing into long term relationships benefit greatly by being guided by the Gottman research on relationships as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

Couples are the shuffling of two different sets of life experiences and expectations, and two different family cultures. Mix in a few kids and the normal stressors of life and the differences can become stark sometimes necessitating a little outside insight. My approach tends to be a narrative therapy one. Each of us has a story we tell ourselves about our relationship and my job is to help bring those narratives closer together.

In V9P 1S5 - Nearby to Port Alberni.

At The Centre For Expressive Therapy, the first step is to help you feel comfortable before beginning to talk about what is foremost on your mind. At your pace and in your own unique way, you are encouraged to share whatever may have brought you to counselling and thus begin to explore your thoughts and feelings. Gradually we can then shed new light on the obstacles you have come across, as we engage in a conversation that encourages self reflection leading to a perspective that opens new possibilities. Using Expressive Therapy, we reflect to find practical solutions to underlying issues we have uncovered. Then you can integrate these discoveries into your life and resolve your issues.

Couples counselling tends to focus on relationship issues between the couple. Types of issues range from enhancing relationships, seeking deeper connection, improving communications, preparing for marriage or living together, areas of disagreement, values, expectations, infidelity, pregnancy issues, family related issues, and joint decision making. My person-centered approach and solution focused therapy tends to be effective for most couples. The benefits to the couple can be wide ranging and include enhanced communications, greater intimacy and higher relationship satisfaction.

Relationships can be difficult to manage when there is a pile of problems. Couples therapy can improve communication and provide a safe environment to approach difficult topics. My practice is informed by The Gottman Method, the works of Dr. Brene Brown, and the Response Based Approach for those who are experiencing violence. I believe couples work can only be done when there is a space where all parties feel worthy and dignified.
