For a relationship to really thrive, both people in the relationship need to thrive. I focus on the personal growth of each individual in the couple as the foundation for a healthy and happy life together. By bringing out the unique gifts and qualities of each person, the relationship can have its best chances. Once both people are ready for the work of couples therapy, we can work on communication, intimacy, vulnerability, availability, balance, and showing up for each other.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Hampshire, Victoria, British Columbia V8S 4T5 | 250-212-3986

Nobody gets married with the intention of getting divorced. Couples come together in love and connection and intend on creating a full, rich and meaningful life together. But people change. Circumstances arise and people behave irrationally or dishonourably. Over time, connection can be chipped away, little by little, by fights and disagreements, misunderstandings and disappointments. I can help you manage your relationship needs and goals and help restore connection and love in the partnership.

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)

Each relationship faces unique hurdles and holds unique potential for growth. By skillfully tuning in to each other's inner worlds, learning new ways of being together and strategies for navigating conflict, we'll resolve what is hindering you. We’ll get creative and collaborate on new possibilities. Intimate relationships can bring out the deepest parts of ourselves and ignite personal transformation. Learning about how we relate is key to learning about ourselves and each other.

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD,  CPBC  #1666
Couples Counsellor

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.

Alan Caplan, MA, RCC

RCC

2187 Oak Bay Ave, Suite 214, Victoria, British Columbia V8R 1G9 | 250-753-3706

i have over 30 years dealing with couples issues and have facilitated many healing relationships. The focus of this work is on recognizing some of the communications that create distance and resentments because members of a couple resort to protecting themselves from fear or pain rather than opening to the truth of what they are experiencing. Once a couple recognizes the value of sharing what is really going on and exploring their differences the intimacy and love returns. I also facilitate an active listening process where each person really listens to the other person without interupting or contradicting. After a bit of practise many couples report that this promotes postive changes.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

201-1600 Bay Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8R 2B6 | 250-508-5845

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.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

Loving, successful relationships need to be carefully and skillfully nurtured in the following five areas: Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Sexual, Financial. Couples who are ready to do ongoing work on their relationships are richly rewarded with a loving, meaningful and joyful life together. Committed relationships that have the possibility of morphing into long term relationships benefit greatly by being guided by the Gottman research on relationships as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
