Couple counselling is available for heterosexual and homosexual couples who may or may not be married. Many people are choosing to live together and are finding themselves having relationship issues. Couple counselling will assist you in sorting through issues and making sense of the issues. Areas that often come up in counselling are communication, intimacy, trust, extended family, finances, problem solving, and parenting styles (if children are involved).

Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

201-219 Oxford Street West, London, Ontario N6H 1S5 | (226) 378-5515

There are many challenges to be navigated in the lifespan of a partnership. It can be difficult at times to sort through the conflicts, hurt, and upset on your own, despite your best efforts. The bond between two people navigating life together is one of the most important attachment relationships you will experience in life and is worthy of the support and guidance that can be provided by a compassionate and unbiased professional. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based approach to helping couples repair and grow their relationship. Unproductive patterns of interaction are identified, and new skills introduced with the goal of increasing safety, security and connection.

Couples counselling can be a little daunting to some, with the prospects of bringing out the skeletons in the closet can be scary and unforgiving. However, it doesn't have to be. My approach involves couples bettering their understanding of one another as individuals, strengthening their bond as a unit, and rekindling the spark that brought them together at the start. Through couples counselling, my goal is to help you improve communication, manage stressful times, and find appreciation for one another, regardless of the hurdles in your past.

My Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey will allow you and your partner to compare your individual emotional needs in your relationship. You first must understand each other's emotional needs before you can dance in synchrony. Clients often are surprised to learn which emotional needs their partner rate as high or low priority, for example, conversation, admiration, affection, power-sharing, emotional closeness, and sexual intimacy. Excellent enrichment exercise for couples!

We all strive to have healthy, loving, and supportive relationships where we can have the space to be ourselves, while also feeling connected to our partners. Our daily lives, major life transitions, and difficult individual circumstances can create challenges in relationships and leave us susceptible to getting stuck in unhelpful patterns. Working together, as a couple, in a therapeutic environment involves shifting these patterns of interaction and developing healthy communication to work together, as a unit to resolve problems and conflicts you may be experiencing while gaining deeper insight of ourselves and our partners. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if we are a good fit.

Over time we fall into communication patterns with our partners. Those patterns become most evident when we are stressed, as we can default to ways of relating to each other that doesn't serve us or our relationship. Learning to build new patterns of communication, more supportive and more connected communication patterns, can promote a healthier relationship, a deeper sense of connection and joy, and a more hopeful future.

8 Edward St, London, Ontario N6C 3H1 | 519-433-0918

Couple counseling in both hetero and homo sexual realtionships has the same starting point of communication, trust, and respect. As a professional using Interpersonal Communication techniques I would help the couple come to understand not only each other as a couple but also themselves as an individual in the couple's relationship. By role modeling an unbias position I will help lend a new perspective to the couple's relationship issues that may not have been seen through the day-to-day routine of their busy lives.

Registered Psychotherapist

40 Windsor Avenue in Wortley Village, London, Ontario N6C 1Z7 | 519 686 6822

Friend, lover, husband, wife, partner, intimate co-creator / intimate enemy: the options of what way couple therapy can help are many. I have over 40 years experience with couples of every variety (straight, lesbian, gay, swingers and so on) and have always found the balance both within each person as well as between the partners as key. Couples - even when in Big Time Conflict - can learn what other choices they have: as individuals and as a working team. The balancing of power between self and one’s partner is the key learning that is often needed. Inevitably both people have areas of esteem - but also areas of vulnerability. It takes risking, but change and healing are possible.

Chris Chmielewski, MSW, RSW,MA

Psychotherapist; Registered Clinical Social Worker

186 Albert St., Ste 206, London, Ontario N6A 1M1 | 519-235-4845

In our ‘significant other’ partnerships we want what we've always wanted: friend for life, passionate fulfillment, unconditional acceptance and love, loyalty, refuge from aloneness… So why do we stop ‘dating’ her/him? Getting this close to someone often has unexpected but predictable consequences: we eventually discover significant differences that ‘disturb’ us. How we interpret these then act toward one another accordingly, is key. However, this can be complicated. Good ‘Couple/Marital Therapy’ respects our complexity. And seeks to transform it from conflict into ‘richness and abundance’, (or end it gracefully). I bring many reliable methods/ resources to support couples desiring growth.

You might not be married but you are a couple. :) I believe relationships require empathy, openness and effort. I embrace diversity of all kinds and encourage a couple to seek therapy at any stage if they wish to increase their understanding of each other's needs. Even one visit to a therapist's office can help you see that change is possible and achievable with even a small amount of effort.

The coming together of individuals to form intimate relationships is more challenging than we may have been told or shown throughout our lives. You are not alone if you have found relationships challenging at times! Our own complex inner world, that of our partner’s and the many challenges life throws our way can create a metaphorical fog, creating distance between us and our partners. I strive to not only assist you in clearing the fog, but also creating a tether for you to find your way back to each other when fog sets in. Couple’s therapy can serve as a space to find clarity and connection, creating room for new possibilities within your relationship. Schedule a free consultation

Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

151B York Street, London, Ontario N6A 1A8 | 519 461-1221

I believe that a healthy couple's relationship is one of the most challenging types of relationships to develop and sustain. This is because a couple’s relationship requires that the couple juggle and balance well at least three types of relationship with each other. When all 3 types of relationships are functioning well between a couple, each individual will feel loved, valued, and respected; and the couple will be able to resolve conflict well and set and achieve common goals collaboratively. Through counseling, I can help you improve how you relate to each other as friends, partners and lovers. Instead of being and operating as individuals, you can be and operate as a true couple.

I see heterosexual, gay and lesbian couples, as well partnerships involving people with non-binary gender presentations. I also see couples in open and polyamorous relationships.

Conflict in a relationship is inevitable but finding ways to communicate constructively in the time of conflict is the key. When we feel unsafe we protect instead of connect so we hurt and we get hurt. At Inward counselling we work with couples to be able to find their patterns of fights, to develop self-awareness to understand their needs and to learn skills to be able to express their needs in a way that their partner listens and connects. In our work with couples we use emotion and attachment focused approaches as well as Gottman method couple therapy to learn new communication skills, to heal the wounds from the past and to feel safe enough to rekindle and reconnect.

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!

Just as J.F.K. said: "Ask not what you can get form your country, but what you can GIVE to your country", so is a couple's relationship. It is not what we can get from our partner, but how do we learn to love them and care for them in a way that makes us feel good, dignified and respectable. Love may not have much to do with this: do we LIKE each other? How do we co-create a safe heaven, a secure base in which we feel nurtured, liked, respected and protected, yet free to be who we really are? What kind of communication is most effective? Adela has been working with couples for over 10 years. Her creativity and passion for good, healthy satisfying relationships can be contagious,

Nothing is as rewarding or satisfying as a healthy, loving, intimate relationship and nothing is as damaging and destructive as an intimate relationship gone wrong. I offer premarriage counselling and I help heterosexual couples of all ages strengthen their relationship and increase trust. I also help couples repair and renew trust when it has been broken. While communication is important, trust is the most vital component to a healthy relationship. While my approach is eclectic.
