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.

When your relationship is in distress and your gender or sexuality doesn't match what society thinks couples are supposed to look like, you need a counsellor who gets it. You're already vulnerable and the last thing you need is to have to educate your therapist about your context. I am queer-identified, LGBTQ+ affirming and knowledgeable about poly, kink, and trans realities. I function from a trauma-informed and anti-oppressive perspective, and I work hard to keep unpacking my own privilege and assumptions. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, so it doesn't cost anything to learn more about how we can work together to get your relationship back on track.

Mary Munro, MA, MCouns, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

1080 Meares, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 3J6 | 250-589-4172

Being connected to our partners is a great thing – but this closeness can get so complicated! Intimate partners hold a lot of power to disappoint us. How do we get into sync, and get what we need to stay invested? It is hard to manage disappointment. We can sometimes give up too much, agree to things we don’t want – or we go the other way, and start bullying the other person. Both of those are strategies to preserve your connection. Is your strategy working for you? In counselling, I help you clarify what is going on for you, what you both want, and what you can possibly do to get there. I create a safe, easy space to check out your relationship – it may be more fun than you think!

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

1124 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 3K8 | 250-412-5921

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.

Couples Counsellor

Corrinne Allyson, PhD

Registered Professional Counsellor

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 1L6 | 250-686-9601

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.

Laura Luz, MA, CFM, Reg. Psychotherapist

Registered Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Intuitive Guide

612 David Street ( in The Round Room), Victoria, British Columbia V8T 2E1 | 1-289-685-4420

Relationships teach us so much about ourselves and our Egos. The term "couple" for this purpose is defined as "two people" who seek assistance. Perhaps you are Friends, Family-members, Parent and Teen, Life-partners, Work-colleagues or Neighbors. Laura can assist with any relationship dynamics through the use of mediation, counselling or guidance.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

208-2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, British Columbia V8R 1G3 | 250-812-5634

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.

Couples Counsellor

Dorion Dellabough, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

4350 Woodcrest Place, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 2C2 | 250-857-8217

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor & Registered Clinical Social Worker

143 Moss Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 4M2 | 250-418-8500

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.

1533 Arrow Rd, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 1C3 | 2505081394

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!

Sarah G. Flynn, RCC, MA, MREM

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#7 - 1921 Fernwood Rd, Victoria , British Columbia V8T 2Y6 | 888-316-0819

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.

Counsellor & Registered Social Worker

Victoria, British Columbia V8P 3V5 | 250-686-3473

Healthy relationships have many components: mutual respect, trust, intimacy, reciprocity, warmth, and compassion. Couples counselling is an opportunity to communicate openly with one another in a safe supportive place – a place where you can share ideas, concerns, feelings, and develop solutions and how you’ll achieve together what will enrich and improve your relationship. Change is possible! Many couples neglect to stop to ‘take stock’ of how the relationship is going and whether it is meeting one another’s needs. What’s working? What are the challenges and concerns? What would it look like if ‘things were better’? It is normal to get into a ‘rut’, experience conflict and resentment. Lives are busy and complicated and it’s not uncommon to take our...(view profile to read more)

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.
