Clinical Counsellor

In L1N 1C4 - Nearby to Pickering.

The majority of couples seeking the intervention of a therapist for their relationship are motivated by emotional pain and frustration. They describe themselves as feeling disconnected from each other, or being on the defensive. They may no longer feel safe, and may be looking to therapy as a means of assessing where they stand with each other. My role in couples’ therapy is to help the two individuals to understand, resolve and move past the issues on which they have become stuck, and establish a positive atmosphere for healthy, ongoing dialogue.

Clinical Counsellor

In M6S 1P5 - Nearby to Pickering.

Couples counseling includes discussions of goals for therapy, learning to understand and clearly communicate your feelings, identify when and how problems arise and develop effective coping strategies. Great results have been found after 3-5 sessions. Couples report feeling better about themselves and their relationship and find that they communicate more effectively which results in less fights.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In L3T 4X1 - Nearby to Pickering.

I work with all types of couples, including gay and lesbian couples, to help them improve communication and problem-solving skills. Common issues include religious and cultural differences, problems with family, finances, trust and intimacy, conflict resolution, anger-management, abuse, fertility, sex, parenting and division of labour. I help couples understand each other's needs and feelings more deeply and treat each other with greater respect and compassion. The benefits of therapy include a more fulfilling and satisfying relationship and an improved environment for children if they are present.

Somatic Experiencing Psychotherapist, Coach, and Counselor

In M2R 2A8 - Nearby to Pickering.

In 2015, I began studying the PACT (Psychobiological) Model for Couples Therapy. Using this model, I am passionate about working with couples. Based on "secure-functioning", you discover exactly, what you wanted but didn't know how to get there. Increasing your awareness on many levels gives you many more options. Discover how you and your partner can feel the way you long to feel and experience a warm safe loving relationship. Rediscover the promise held within the love and attraction that brought you together.

Couples Counsellor

Kathleen Sutcliffe, BA, MDiv, RMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In L6E 1A4 - Nearby to Pickering.

In times of conflict we feel attacked and unsafe. We are flooded with emotions and act out of a sense of being overwhelmed: "Attack," "Run!" "Comply!" and "Hide!" are some of the ways we respond to conflict. In counselling, couples learn to see themselves as separate from each other and therefore less threatened. Once the emotional storm is diffused, couples can learn specific skills and perspectives that heal the relationship. But we do not seek simply to return to the status quo. Couples can then learn to hear, value and enjoy each other. Life with your partner can be fun and every day a day of discovering the pleasure of the person you are with.

Registered Psychologist

In L4G 7L6 - Nearby to Pickering.

Intimate relationships are an integral part of our lives, and the quality of those relationships has a considerable impact on us. However, relationships can be difficult. Couples therapy helps people to improve communication, develop new ways of solving problems, and increase emotional and physical intimacy. If there has been a significant breach of trust or marital infidelity, therapy focuses on coping with the event, increasing understanding of the factors that contributed to it, and if required, helping the couple decide whether to remain in the marriage or end it. When the couple desires to remain together, the focus is on helping the couple to heal and repair their relationship.

Mia Sheard, RP, BA, CAPT, Gestalt
Couples Counsellor

Mia Sheard, RP, BA, CAPT, Gestalt

Registered Psychotherapist

In M4K 3K8 - Nearby to Pickering.

I have worked with couples for over 7 years. Very often we are attracted to our partner because they have the qualities we don't possess. And we LOVE those things about them! For a while anyway. After a period time, those qualities become the very things that drives us the most crazy. "Why can't you be more like me!", we think to ourselves (or say out loud!). When I work with couples, I explore how our partner holds the very thing we need in ourselves. I help couples find a better way to communicate, as they explore "the elephant in the room" in a safe environment. I provide feedback on what I notice, so they can find new awarenesses and new ways of being with the other.

Registered Social Worker

In M4K 1P6 - Nearby to Pickering.

Being in an intimate relationship takes work. It is the relationship in which the highest peaks of both joy and pain can be found. I assist couples in working through the challenges to develop a deeper level of understanding, compassion and connection. My approach to working with couples is to create a safe holding environment in which couples can take risks to share their hopes for their relationship, hear each other and validate the feelings without judgment. I draw from a variety of treatment approaches including Relational Life Therapy.

In L0B 1A0 - Nearby to Pickering.

Do you or your partner suffer from social anxiety and it's affecting your relationship? Social anxiety is a fear of negative judgment from others and it can lead to reduced levels of intimacy, suppressed emotions, feelings of isolation and loneliness and lack of communication. If one or both of you feels anxious socially, your relationship may be suffering too. Contact me for ways in which you can move past social anxiety to a fuller, intimate, richer, relaxed more authentic relationship.

Couples Counsellor

Liane Odze-Silver, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In M6C 3H1 - Nearby to Pickering.

Couples benefit from working on communication, on practicing healthy skills, on unpacking the ways in which personal issues and triggers are interfering with active listening and healthy partnership. Clients benefit from being able to express their needs and feelings, from learning how to be assertive, and from witnessing that they are being heard, both by the therapist and their partner. Finding compromise without losing oneself, setting personal goals as well as relationship goals, learning to nurture oneself, as well as the relationship, are all benefits of therapy. Examining co-dependent patterns can lead to opportunities for growth. The therapist models respectful relating.
