I have many years of experience working with both same sex and hetersexual couples. I create a safe space to better understand behaviours, intentions, thoughts and feelings. My goal is for you to learn communicate clearly, to understand your own needs and your partner's needs. With a greater awarness of the patterns and reactions you and your partner are involved in you can begin to take small steps toward healing.

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.

In N4G 4E3 - Nearby to Stratford.

I am very passionate about couples counselling. When my clients first walk through the door on their first session, I love to envision the day that their counselling has come to an end and to see the happiness on their faces. I believe every couple should do couple counselling as I have first hand experienced how much more fulfilling marriage after. I provide a safe and non biased environment for couples to be able to lay down all their baggage and talk about the hard stuff, but also celebrate the things that are going right and the small successes and changes they have made.

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.

I offer both couple and family counselling to help you learn to better navigate healthy relationships and experience the intimacy you need in your life. I am able to offer both short-term skill-building, activity-based couple counselling as well as a longer-term, dynamic approach that generally lasts 5-8 months, depending on the couple and scheduling. 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.

In N6H 1S5 - Nearby to Stratford.

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.

James Morgan, M.Div., M.A.Sc.

Psychotherapist

In N2H 1V2 - Nearby to Stratford.

Working with couples is actually working with two individuals. Each person brings their own unique personality to the couple relationship. Where those personalities clash, and a clash is inevitable, there is an opportunity to learn something about the Self. Why is it that I react the way I do to this aspect of my partner? Do I like this about my Self? Would I like to be able to respond rather than react? Moving into this territory is moving into the land of personal growth which is possible through being in a relationship. It's moving to a place where you have the opportunity to become the best person you can be and to move beyond the personality you inherited through your history.

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.

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,

Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In N6A 1A8 - Nearby to Stratford.

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.

Couples Counselling Most relationships will become strained at some point and will begin producing maladaptive patterns. Relationship problems are rooted in our distorted egos, insecure attachment, emotional immaturity etc., which create to the many issues that develop for couples - infidelity, financial stress, poor communication, ill health, sexual divergence, household responsibility conflicts, addictions, etc., .... or just simply growing apart. Relationships can often be restored if help is sought soon enough. A counsellor can help reorient perceptions and emotions (how we look at a situation and how we feel about it) and assist the couple in adopting conscious structural changes.

You deserve a relationship that is characterized by mutual respect, clear communication, and generous compassion.

Relationships ebb and flow, and couples counselling can help. Using the Gottman Method of couples counselling I'll help you learn to repair after a conflict, commit to one another's dreams, and build your own unique map to the relationship you desire and deserve.

Psychotherapist; Registered Clinical Social Worker

In N6A 1M1 - Nearby to Stratford.

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.

The relationship we have with our partner is what matters most to us. I work with couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy an evidence-based treatment based on attachment theory. Using the EFT model, we work together to de-escalate current conflict by identifying the negative pattern that is creating distance in the relationship. In accessing and heightening emotional presence I seek to support the couple in restructuring their sense of connectedness.
