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.

Registered Psychotherapist

In L3X 1W1 - Nearby to Pickering.

Relationships are similar to living organisms as they need to be fed and nourished in order to survive the outside demands of life such as work and children. My focus, when working with couples, is to first establish what their commitment to working on the relationship is as it takes both partners being present and willing for therapy to be effective. I use Emotionally Focused therapy with couples counselling as it based on attachment.

Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Counsellor

In L4G 5P3 - Nearby to Pickering.

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.

Having a soul-mate to share your life with brings such a joyful and fruitful experience. However, misunderstanding and miscommunication by your significant other can also make your whole world up side down. Through couple counselling, both of your feelings will be addressed and validated. In addition, you will understand how your communication styles create an unhealthy cycle and pattern that need to be broken in order to foster a long-lasting healthy relationship.

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.

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!

Elizabeth Hepworth, HBA, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In L4A 7X5 - Nearby to Pickering.

Working with couples is my passion. The first question most want to know is: can we be helped and how long will it take? The answer is tied to how long you waited to get help and how willing both parties are to work in making it better. I work with people to heal the damage that has been done and educate them on how to avoid hurting each other in the future. We explore effective communication tools; arguing styles and develop an intimate knowledge of needs and wants. When our work is complete you will have created a marriage, which is unique and customized to you. Marriage counseling is an investment; however when it is done correctly it is worth the work.

It can be difficult to rediscover your emotional intimacy with your partner when it seems to be buried underneath layers of hurt and anger and misunderstandings. I can help you to unpack these layers in a safe space that promotes healing and understanding. We can also work on better communication patterns so that misunderstanding aren't as likely to flare up again in the future. Conflict in a relationship is normal, but it is how you two manage your conflict that will ultimately impact the quality of your relationship.

If you are reading this page you are provably feeling that things are not going in the direction you want with your partner and you are starting to feel that your love for each other is not enough to make it work as you expected. Relationships are very complex and there are many conscious and unconscious dynamics we bring to our relationships which are very hard to objectively identify on ourselves even if you are a professional in this field. If you resonate with the situation I am describing I encourage you to contact me. I can support you on discovering how you two could be contributing to it and to gain the awareness and tools to make it better for the present situation and the future.

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

I often hear 'Why would I go to a couples counselor? I know the problem and will figure out how to solve it.' This is logical but does not work. Why? A lot of the information you need is in the unconscious and unavailable to you. As an example, you do not realize that when your parents did not respond to your emotional needs you decided, at a young age, not to let anyone know those needs as you would only be disappointed and hurt. This negatively effects your relationships. Since I offer a free consultation I suggest we meet to help you see areas, that you ae unaware of, that need to be worked on for the kind of relationship you deserve.

When we run into problems in our intimate relationships, there is usually a negative pattern that has evolved. This can be painful and undermining to our connection with our partner. My first job is to help you identify and understand this pattern. Then, I will help each of you to unpack the feelings and beliefs underlying it. In the safety of my office, I will help you learn to communicate on a more intimate level. In this way, you can begin to disarm the triggers that lead to misunderstandings. Once again, you will feel you are there for one another. And you will feel a renewed sense of security in the life you share together.

All relationships hit rough patches from time to time. However couples who have the skills to identify and talk in a mature and calm manner are able to manage these rough patches before they become mighty marriage mountains to scale. When couples struggle to communicate, be active and present participants in their relationship, take responsibility for their part of the problem and the solution we end up with a breakdown of the relationship. It is possible to learn the skills that will improve your relationship. Working on improving communication skills, conflict resolutions and negotiating skills, stress and self management skills and much more will help grow your relationship.

Couples counselling focusses on enhancing your relationship with your partner. You may do this type of therapy with, or without, your partner. Benefits to your relationship still can come from attending couples sessions on your own, such as, improving communication skills, developing assertiveness, overcoming resentments, improving intimacy, learning new ways to deal with your partner. When attending with your partner: * Learning how each of you are in relationships (early influences, patterns, self-defeating styles) * Increasing self-expression * Learning constructive ways to argue and fight * Better understanding of the each other (who you are really dealing with)

Couples Counselling can help you understand how some of your personal patterns may be negatively affecting your relationship. This is an opportunity to feel heard and understood by your partner and to open yourselves towards new possibilities of communication and understanding in your relationship.
