Registered Social Worker

265 Carling Ave, Ottawa, Ontario K1S 2E1 | 613-218-0249

Couples who care for a family member with a disability, special needs, or chronic illness experience both joys and stresses that other couples do not encounter. Couples caring for family members with special needs often have little time for themselves as individuals, let alone each other. There are times when couples may disagree about what type of care their loved one needs, how to care for their loved one, and plans for the future. I can help couples maintain a sense of togetherness while enhancing communication, negotiation, problem solving and collaboration skills to help couples manage difficulties that arise from caring for a loved one with complex needs.

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.

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!

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.

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

11 Basin Court (In Arlington Woods), Nepean, Ontario K2H 8P2 | 613-726-3636

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.

Relationships are important to our well being. Being together with another individual is not always easy and with the wear and tear of life’s issues and traumas it can be very difficult… Every relationship has its ups and downs but if you’re stuck in a negative holding pattern come and have a free consultation with me to see if I’m the right person for the two of you to rekindle your relationship. I have a Graduate Certificate in Couples Counselling from Saint Paul University (an affiliate of the University of Ottawa) and working with couples is my specialty. You establish your goals and I assist you in achieving them. It is possible for you to reconnect with your partner.

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

53 Shouldice Cresent, Kanata, Ontario K2L 1M8 | (613) 447-5041

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.

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.
