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.

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.

If you are coming to couples therapy, you and your partner have developed unhealthy patterns of relating. I will help you overcome your toxic communication patterns. If there has been an affair, I will help you recognize and acknowledge the deep emotional trauma it has caused. I will help you move from self-focus to partner-focus, and finally I will help move you from blame to understanding and empathy.

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

In V9A 5S1 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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.

Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9C 1E7 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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.

Are you and your partner struggling in your relationship? Do you argue a lot and want to learn better communication skills? Sexuality, finances and family are common stressors. Sexuality issues may include lack of desire, cheating, sexual addiction, porn, online sex or polyamory. There may have been sexual abuse, incest or other trauma. Many couples report that intimacy in their relationship is infrequent or has ended and they want to restore it. Anger, resentment, issues from previous relationships may be troubling you.

Registered Professional Counsellor

In V8N 1L6 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Couples counselling (gay, straight, male or femaie) addresses problems arising from adult sexual or intimate relationships. The couple may or may not be in a marriage relationship. Even conflicts between best friends can respond to couples counselling. Have you come to counselling to stay together or to break up? We first meet to answer this question. It' not about who is right or wrong. There are three clients in the session: each of the individuals AND the relationship. We work together to restore trust and communication when the strain of work, family, money and health takes its toll.

Couples counselling is about helping couples understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Tools are taught and modelled to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve, and even argue in a healthier manner. Therapy can be short term crisis work or longer term in order to build intimacy over time. Couples counselling can be about healing old wounds, rebuilding the relationship, learning to understand each other, and connecting in order to make thoughtful decisions about and for the future.

In V8V 4N5 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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.

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

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8T 2Y6 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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.
