Couples Counsellor

Christian Counselling Ottawa

Registered Psychotherapists

303-63 Glencoe Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Several different professions can offer counselling to a couple. For example, when a couple is in conflict over financial issues, they might seek help from a financial counsellor or a pastor. These types of counselling may have similarities to counselling with a Psychotherapist, but the focus and approach are different. The psychotherapist focuses on deeply held core beliefs that each partner brings to the relationship, and how these contribute to the dynamic within the relationship. The emphasis would be on what is driving the emotional and psychological conflict within the couple relationship.

Couples Counselor

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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 Counsellor

Liesel Aranyosi, Registered Professional Counsellor

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, Ontario

Staying as a couple, like any relationship reqires work. There has been a lot of myths surrounding relationships that we have learned from our parents, grandparents, etc. Couples benefit from knowing what myths they may have incorrectly learned about relationships. Couples will greatly benefit from identifying the "shoulds" and "musts" in their heads that they are bringing into the relationship. Once identified, we can work on making replacement thoughts that would work for each individual when confronted with difficult relationship issues. And the best part is that they can use the skills they have learned in therapy for their lifetime, either individually or as a couple.

Couples Counsellor

Paul LeBlanc, MSW, RSW


1986 Fairbanks Avenue Back Door, Ottawa, Ontario

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.

Couples Counsellor

Stephanie Dugdale, M.A., CCC

Individual and Couple Therapist

451 Daly Ave., Lower Level 3, Ottawa, Ontario

Couples can often feel disconnected and can have long standing patterns of interaction which feel like they can't move away from, no matter how hard they try. Couples work can help unlock this feeling of 'lock down' and help people understand the pain and fear under the behaviours -their own and their partner's. Through exploring together couples can heal old wounds and begin to feel safe, understood, connected, engaged, and fulfilled bringing vitality back to the relationship.

Couples Counsellor

Michelle Berezny, M.A., RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist, Canadian Certified Counsellor

2081 Merivale Road, Suite 800, Ottawa, Ontario

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.

Couples Counsellor

Michael Hart, M.A., CCC

Certified Canadian Counsellor

1825 St. Joseph Blvd, Ottawa, Ontario

Whether it is a fight over the dishes or over an affair, it is important for a therapist to be able to identify and understand interaction patterns in a relationship. Our counsellors are trained in identifying and understanding interaction patterns between individuals in a relationship. Once couples are able to identify interaction patterns and understand how unwanted interactions develop, they are more able to make the changes they desire . Proper interaction allows each partner to feel heard and avalidated and facilitate forgiveness and restoration.

Couples Counsellor

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

Bank Street (On the Rideau Canal), 15 Aylmer Ave. (Entrance at the rear door, at 7 Galt St.) , Ottawa, Ontario

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.

Couples Counsellor

Centre For Interpersonal Relationships

Registered Psychologists, Therapists, Counsellors

267 O'Connor St., Suite 600, Ottawa, Ontario

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.

Couples Counsellor

Gill Reilly, MSW, RSW, RMFT

Registered Marriage and family Therapist, Certified EMDR

I have had 5 years of training in Emotionally Focused Therapy an Attachment based modal of therapy that has been shown to be highly effective with many couples. Helping couples understand the issues which are underneath most arguments. By learning about the 'Negative Cycle' clients learn to speak to each other about their attachment needs and to become a real 'team' as they go through life together. In some instances a Psycho-dynamic approach allows a couple to move forward more quickly. Each couple is assessed and the most effective model is used in resolving their issues.
