Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

In K2P 1V4 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Couple Counselling Therapy involves learning how to do the following and much more: love your partner and be loved in return, reconnect with that person you fell in love with, communicate and be heard, transcend the spoken words to truly understand the meaning and importance of your partner's communication. This process necessitates a vision that neither partner is right or wrong and that the other has very different needs that we will probably not understand but that we will need to make central.

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

In K2H 8P2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Most of my practice is working with couples. I have over 30 years of experience dealing mostly with couples. Many people, including therapists, believe that couple counselling is synonymous with "double individual" counselling. Clients coming to my practice soon learn that there is a dynamic set up with a couple that is quite different than when they just list all of their respective issues, challenges and potential solutions. I teach them how to negotiate on every level of their daily lives together. I share with them techniques of how to avoid falling into the "blame and shame game". I have 25 years of experience as a divorce mediator and so I can teach couples conflict resolution.

Can. Cert. Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In K1H 5T7 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Couples are sometimes stuck in their cycle of communication where the "dance" has stopped and no one can move smoothly. Negative patterns have taken hold and both partners are caught in a rut. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand and experience where they have been caught in their cycle, where they no longer hear or understand their partner. With new insights and understanding they become able to hear the music again, join the flow and move ahead with new choices in a clearer channel of communication.

Sandra Bernard, M.Div. Counselling, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In K2H 8T5 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Being in a relationship is exciting at first. But when the excitement fades we are suddenly faced with someone we may no longer love, understand or have little in common with. Each person brings to the relationship a unique past, and a unique personality. A goal in therapy is to help couples gain a deeper understanding and empathy for their partner. The therapist will help couples safely explore factors which may be contributing to their difficulties. When infidelity is involved they will be assisted in healing those deep wounds and what may have cause it in the first place. The goal is to help couples open the lines of communication and foster a deeper relationship.

In K2G 1G9 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

The couple relationship is a very close and intimate bond between two partners. When hurdles arise within a couple relationship, it can be very beneficial to seek the professional support of a third party to offer a fresh, unbiased perspective. Counselling support aims to strength the connection between partners while inviting each member to be curious about recurring patterns and behaviours in their lives together.

In K0A 1K0 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

The biggest thing I've noticed couples need help with is their communication. So I usually start by having couples identify their current problem-solving style and then help them shift to a more assertive style, with me as the mediator/coach in session. I also help couples to discuss their needs/wants with each other and to explore whether or not each partner will be able to get what they're looking for. As well, issues and resentments are reviewed and resolved using the newly learned assertive problem-solving communication.

Couples who are deciding whether to invest further in their relationship, who want marriage preparation, want to deepen their love, heal hurts or rekindle relationship are all couples we work with. At Sandra Forbes, Relarionship Solutions, we assess communication, emotional closeness, attachment, and trust. From there goals are defined and the purpose for the sessions is established. The walk toward a deeper love and closeness, healling a hurt or hurts, improving the way couples talk with one another or preparing for marriage is guided by a structured approach to the therapy. The head and heart are both the focus.

Catherine Stafford, M.Ed., C.Psych.

Psychologist/Psychologue

In K2G 6E2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

I work with couples in a variety of ways, depending on what the couple identifies as their priorities for work in therapy. As with my therapeutic approach in individual therapy, it's most important that both partners feel comfortable with me and feel safe to share their emotions and experiences. I offer a non-judgemental space in which couples can explore the complex feelings, patterns of behaviour, and strengths they share together as a couple. This process ultimately leads to couples achieving greater understanding, mutual compassion, deeper intimacy and informed choices.

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?

Registered individual, Couple & Family Relationship Therapist

In K2K 2E2 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Couples today have multiple challenges they must address to retain the safety and comfort of a trusting, intimate and caring relationship. With the pressures and time constraints of our dual career world, we can lose connection with each other. Couples therapy / coaching requires each partner to examine their own needs and dreams, to listen without judgement to their partner, and to take action that supports both their needs. We do this together with goal setting, planning and action that brings laughter and security back into your relationship, & solutions to specific relationship challenges. The process goal is to achieve a deeper connection that brings mutual respect and love for life.

Gerald Joy, RSW, RMFT, CD

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

In K2L 1M8 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

In my work with couples I adhere to the philosophy that relationships are at the core of human experience. Research indicates that emotionally fulfilling relationships are integral components of mental and physical health, and that emotionally focused interventions have the power to establish and re-create supportive bonds among individuals. I am therefore dedicated to the understanding and enhancement of couple and family relationships through an emphasis on emotions and their interpersonal impact. I believe that all people can maximize their potential given a nurturing social environment, which I endeavour to foster in my work with clients.

Secure connection to others is perhaps the most important aspect of our lives and it can be devastating when the bond between partners breaks down. I practise a form of couples therapy that directly targets that bond, helping the couple to take control of what is happening in the relationship and to create the type of connection where they can both feel safe, valuable and loved.

In K1H 5Y6 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

It is my privilege to have been helping couples of all manner work through relationship difficulties. As an attachment therapist informed by Sue Johnson Phd, and John Gottman Phd., Couples enter into goal directed, evidence based work toward improved attachment and friendship. Couples therapy is non judgement, supportive while also educational. Couples come to counselling looking for "skills", and reduced conflict. This is the focus while also seeking improved friendship and intimacy. It really is a privilege to work with couples and achieve these results.

Residential Addiction Program

In K0A 1K0 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

When someone in a relationship has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, their significant other is also affected by the addiction. The frustrated partners of addicts often despair when communication efforts and sincere efforts to help fail. It is critical for addicts to receive the rehabilitation they need, but without counseling for their spouses and partners, the addict will not return home to a healthy environment. At Valiant Recovery, we offer couples counseling and individual counseling for the spouses and partners of clients who need help processing the impact of addiction, and who are ready to embrace change moving forward.

*Please Note - I do not see couples together - I only see individuals looking for relationship support* If you and your partner are having concerns with your relationship, but you are not ready to sit down for therapy together, I can support you. We can work together to identify patterns of communicating and the dynamics of the relationship that are no longer working, and specifically work towards changing some of your behaviours in the relationship. We can also look towards developing some goals and aspirations for attending counselling as a couple should you choose to do so.

In K2P 1V3 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Much of life satisfaction depends on our ability to create and maintain meaningful and mutually satisfying relationships. Our attachments to partners can be a great source of love, comfort, soothing, and pleasure. Emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy together form the cornerstone of couple bonds. The CFIR couple therapist will create safety in the therapeutic environment. He or she will not ‘side’ with any one partner, but instead will explore how emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy has been blocked and how each member in the couple inadvertently may be contributing to the disconnection.

In K1P 5M9 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

The level of challenge a couple deals with in a relationship, and the ability that each couple has to overcome these hurdles depends on a number of factors. My goal is to help you both develop strategies in order to: better communicate; identify the direction you want to take in your lives as a couple; and most importantly, to grow together, as individuals in a relationship with each other, on your journey through life!

Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist

In K0G 1J0 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

Being part of a couple can be the most exhilarating feeling in the world. Paradoxically, It can also be the most lonely experience when things are not going well. Working from an emotionally-focused perspective, I help couples understand attachment needs and how these unmet needs can create difficulties in their relationship. It really isn't about the housework, children, or sex, it is about the connection a couple has (or doesn't have).

Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In K2L 3C8 - Nearby to Barrhaven.

In couples counselling, unhealthy or unhelpful relationship issues, such as anger, conflict, or communication issues can be explored. In this exploration, patterns of interaction are revealed and discussed. The first step for minimizing the unhealthy or unhelpful patterns of interaction is to identify them, understand them, and understand what triggers them. Couples counselling will examine these triggers and past experiences that have encouraged these triggers to develop.

Registered Psychotherapist Online

Available for Online Therapy

Our most intimate relationships are where we are often challenged the most to grow. Much of my work with couples is helping each person feel entitled to their feelings and feel able to advocate for their needs within the relationship. So often we have expectations of how our partner or spouse is supposed to be, how we are supposed to be with them and there are unspoken expectations to navigate between us. These assumptions can easily lead to very destructive patterns that we act out with the person we want to feel the closest to. Our work is to strengthen ourselves from the inside out so that we can meet our partner "full of ourselves" and then find ways to be together that are a win win!
