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.

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?

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.

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.

I work primarily from an emotionally-focused therapeutic approach. I can help you to regain your emotional connection and feel close again. We all want to feel safe, supported, loved and valued in our intimate connections, as well at to know that our partner is available, responsive and engaged. Love is no longer a mystery, and research in couple's counselling has shown that we can repair and restore relationships even after painful disconnection and betrayal. Healing is entirely possible if both partners are willing to show up and commit to the process.

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.

Couples seek counselling for multiple reasons – from fighting and frustration to affairs or intimacy. Sometimes partners sense their relationship could just be better. Virtually all challenged relationships can be improved with better communications. Together we will explore and expand our communication skills, and practice them in a supportive and safe environment. Talking through the personal issues that each partner brings to the relationship can help couples build intimacy and grow closer.

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 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.

If you’re considering marriage counselling or therapy, the most important decision you can make is choosing the right couples counsellor. I've been working with couples for almost 30 years and I've been featured on CBC, Reader’s Digest, Macleans, Elle Magazine, The Globe & Mail, the Calgary Herald and most recently in the August edition of Zoomer magazine. You know the consequences of divorce - it hurts, it costs money, it lowers your standard of living, it hurts children, it affects your person friendships and relationships. If you're putting your marriage and future on the line, make sure you get the best counsellor you can find, one that's PRO MARRIAGE AND COMMITMENT.

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, British Columbia V9A 5S1 | 250.884.9041

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.

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.
