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.

Derek Martin, PhD

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In V8W 2J9 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Our relationships are often the main reason many of us come to counselling. It is not that we couldn't use individual work to heal from our own past traumas and emotional difficulties. Our culture teaches us to stuff our emotions, and we all carry some degree of emotional baggage. But our relationships are dear to us. Even so, they can also hurt us. They don't always bring out our best. Unresolved baggage from the past often leads to difficulties in the present. And unfortunately relationship problems are also isolating, and communication is often the first casualty. Counselling is a place to start to get communication flowing again, and a safe zone to begin to rebuild trust.

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.

John Parker, MA RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9L 4L9 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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 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 Counsellor

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8N 2C2 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

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.
