Positive relationships have a remarkable impact on our lives. A sense of well-being and emotional health can be impacted heavily by relationships. Sometimes, when relationships are no longer positive, it can be distressing, leaving individuals feeling betrayed, upset, cut off and even angry. Working with couples in a supportive, caring way, together, we will explore your issues to improve communication and to discover a rekindling of your relationship.

Couples Counsellor

Luella Jonk, PhD, RP, C. Hyp., CPC

Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Hypnotherapist, Professional Counsellor

In R2M 0T5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I specialize in couple counselling. Many of us wonder how to make relationships work. I provide you with the answers that you can apply to your everyday life; not only with your spouse, but in any relationship. On the surface, it appears so easy and many therapists say 'communication is key' to building a strong relationship. This is true but it is not enough. One needs the tools to practice daily and when you begin to incorporate these tools daily, it becomes so simple. The single biggest mistake that I see couples making is to avoid conflict, thereby avoiding emotion. By doing this, one inevitably builds a great deal of resentment towards the other. I am a Level 3 Gottman Therapist.

Paula Newman, M.Ed. Psych.
Couples Counsellor

Paula Newman, M.Ed. Psych.

Counsellor Therapist

In R3N 1A3 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

My approach to couples counselling is very direct. I start with hearing both sides of the story without interruption. I like to get very specific because I believe that a lot can be discovered about how people communicate by exploring the details of even one disagreement. My mind is always as wide open with couples as it is with individuals because often the resolution of the issue is much different than the couple initially imagined. My goal, as always, is to help people as quickly as possible.

Murielle Jennings, MMFT, CCC, RMFT
Couples Counsellor

Murielle Jennings, MMFT, CCC, RMFT

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist; Canadian Certified Counsellor

In R3L 0N9 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I approach Relati,onal therapy as a system, based on attachment theory. This means that the individuals bring their family and previous relationships into the current intimate relationship - the positives and the negatives. These interactions change with every individual within this most intimate relationship - which is why every relationship is different, even if we see our own, and possibly the others patterns. We work collaboratively to find the most harmful interaction patterns, and then create and positive patterns providing new tools for sustainable change in the relationship. This process works with all intimate relationships, whether developing, continuing, progressing, or ending.

Couples Counsellor

Kristy Carroll, B.A, M.M.F.T

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

In R2H 1J5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Within a couple, there are three developmental processes occurring at any given time-that of each partner and that of the couple itself. A couple matures well when partners each feel able to define their thoughts, feelings, wants and desires, and can voice this in the spirit of knowing one another more deeply. I work with couples to uncover what patterns keep them from effectively self defining and maintaining a positive attachment with each other. To this end, I ask partners to decide their own autonomous goals, and then support them in this to develop their capacity to expand themselves while also growing as a couple.

If you are married or in a committed relationship, you know that relationships take work. It can be a source of great strength or great emotional pain. Often we devote minimal time to this very important relationship, and when it falters, we are stumped as to how to fix it. That is when couples counseling can provide the structure you need to communicate effectively. I approach couples counselling using Emotion Focused Therapy, which helps couples to uncover the root causes of distress, improve communication and reconnect with each other.

Couples Counsellor

Lindsey Walsh, MMFT

Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy

In R2N 1S7 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

As individuals we bring our own history, pain, fears and points of view into a relationship. We carry dysfunctional ways of communicating and relating to others which can manifest in the way we communicate our needs, leading to the self sabotage of our relationships. It’s often this struggle with communication that can drive our partners even further away. Arguments increase, the distance becomes wider, and we get caught in a cycle we don’t know how to stop. I’ll work with you in developing new and effective ways to bring clarity and resolution to your concerns. This happens when you and your partner speak the same language and actually hear and understand each other.

Couples Counsellor

Gerry Pettyjohn, MA, CSRT

Certified Sexual Recovery Therapist

In R2J 4A7 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I work with many couples who are going through the distress of sex addiction and infidelity. My approach is to begin the therapy with each partner individually. Once they have each gained some traction in the chaos, I bring them together to do couple's sessions. If separation is necessary or unavoidable, I guide couples through a conditional (planned) separation. When a couple is ready to reconcile, I use the six pillars of marriage to help them rebuild a brand new relationship.

Using biblical principles I help couples get to the core of the problems they are experiencing. Most marital conflict stems from inability to communicate effectively. I offer a safe environment where couples can be open and honest about their feelings towards each other and together we discover new and better ways to communicate. "However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." - Ephesians 5:33

Lori Kolesnik, MA, CCC

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In R2H 0G9 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

I really enjoy working with couples who are motivated to figure out a response to their unique relational challenges. I have training in both Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Gottman Method, both incredibly well-researched and effective in improving intimate partnerships. Couples get caught in negative cycles of disconnection which we can learn to interrupt to increase connection and intimacy. Disconnection creates conflict and we can work together to learn how to negotiate conflict in a way that builds up your relationship, rather than tearing it apart.

Relationships can be incredible AND incredibly challenging when there are issues. Therapy can help by introducing an impartial support person who's job is to help offer a fresh perspective, guide you through the process of highlighting strengths, clarifying areas that need work and brainstorming steps you can take to move forward into a more fulfilling relationship. It can also be a wonderful process to explore areas of personal growth and explore how that growth positively impacts your life and the lives of those you love.

Couples are under a lot of stress these days. Aside from the day-to-day challenges of making a living and/or raising children, relationships can suffer from infidelity, toxic conflict patterns and issue related to sex.

I can help provide new ways to connect and to approach issues between the two of you.

My approach to couple therapy is from an attachment perspective. Meaning that we have a need for others in our lives and because of that need we can experience distress. Distress is common and to be expected; however, high levels of distress and/or conflict are not common and can be addressed within an attachment framework, also referred to as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

Alan Vanderwater, M.A. /Registered MCSW

Counselling Therapist

In R3B 0W5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Couples so often drift into habits of not recognizing each other's attempts to connect. Sometimes a fresh look can help see the blind spots - the things you've stopped doing; the missed opportunities that are essential to a deep bond. I work with couples on identifying and recommitting to love - which is a choice of the will, at the heart of it all.

Couples Counsellor

Riverbend Counselling & Wellness Therapy, Coaching, Seminars, MA, PACCC

Counselling Therapist

In R2G 1L1 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Relationships can be the best of times, but also require copious amounts of effort. There are no "master-couples" who got where they are without putting in the time and hard work. We've all entered relationships with dreams and idealism, and then discover flaws that can be daunting. Although some divorces are inevitable, we believe that the rate of successful reconciliation can be much higher. Regardless of what your need is, to enhance an already good relationship, to mend problems, or to find a different path, we are able to help.

Karen Bourdon, MA

Counselling Therapist

In R2M 3T2 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

All of us were created for relationship. Marriage is the most intimate form of all relationships. It, therefore, can also be the source of our most agonizing pain. It takes maturity, dedication and insight to make such a relationship successful. Every relationship is imperfect and can benefit from deeper work. Sometines, we get very much off track. I can help by looking at communication, conflict, misunderstandings, betrayal, intimacy, wounding and abuse. I can help couples identify their individual personalities and love languages. I can help couples come to a place where each of their needs are being met. I also love to do premarital counselling where much prevention can occur.
