My sensitive and compassionate presence allows couples to explore relationship patterns that cause tension and conflict. Drawing from the work of Gottman (The Marriage Clinic) and Dr. Sue Johnson (Emotionally Focussed Therapy), I help couples develop skills and strategies for repairing and strengthening their relationship and enabling them to feel more fulfilled.

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.

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 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.

Misha Gitberg, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

In V8N 1G2 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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 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.

Corrinne Allyson, PhD

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.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

In V9G 1A1 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Relationship are complicated and can be difficult. Each partner has had an upbringing, and life experiences that have shaped their values and outlook on life. These may differ from the outlook and values of their partner. Each partner also has their own methods of coping: direct, avoiding, exploding, running, and retreating. As your counsellor, I will help you both explore how your similarities help and hinder your relationship. You will gain a better understanding of why you and your partner 'do what you do'. You will learn effective ways of communicating, problem solving, managing emotions and conflict; in an effort for you both to achieve respect and love.

Kirsten Mueller, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

In V8N 1C3 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

As a couples counsellor, I draw from both my personal and professional experience to offer you and your partner skills, knowledge, and a warm and friendly LGBTQ environment. I firmly believe that there is no "right" and no "wrong" in any conflict. There is only your truth and my truth. The task is to learn both empathy and self-compassion, in order to move past the identified problem and towards a rediscovery of each other. I've been there, working like crazy to get over a crisis in my own relationship. As a mom of a non-binary transfeminine young adult, I am a voice for disenfranchised and stigmatized couples. Are the two of you ready to work? Get in touch today!
