Couples Counselor

Gill Reilly, MSW, RSW, RMFT

Registered Marriage and family Therapist, Certified EMDR

Within Driving Distance of Ottawa, ON

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.

Couples will be guided in finding a common ground in their relationships. They will learn about each others' communication styles and gain better understanding of each other along the way.

Couples Counselor

Abundant Living Counselling Group


Various locations in Ottawa, Ottawa, ON K2G 0G3

The single counsellor option is available as well as the CO-THERAPY MODEL: Two therapists - one man and one woman: a therapeutic square rather than the traditional triangle. This tends to provide a sense of equal representation in the therapeutic team and liberates each member of the couple in bringing his/her issues and positions forward. Each partner receives clinical attention and support as does the couple relationship.

Couples Counselor

Suzanne More Kerr, M.A. (C. Psych.), C.C.C.

Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

611 - 267 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, ON K2P 1V3

Couple Counselling Therapy involves learning how to do the following and much more: love your partner and be loved in return, reconnect with that person you fell in love with, communicate and be heard, transcend the spoken words to truly understand the meaning and importance of your partner's communication. This process necessitates a vision that neither partner is right or wrong and that the other has very different needs that we will probably not understand but that we will need to make central.

Jane Langmaid, M. Ed., RP

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, ON K1P 5M9

Usually by the time couples come in they are in significant distress. My approach to couple counselling is built upon Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, which is cutting edge in this field. The goal is to change the climate in the relationship, the safety, the way the individuals experience themselves, and therefore what and how they share with each other. This type of change is enduring. To supplement EFT, I offer other tools which help couples implement changes at home.

Couples Counselor

Gerald Joy, RSW, RMFT, CD

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

Within Driving Distance of Ottawa, ON

In my work with couples I adhere to the philosophy that relationships are at the core of human experience. Research indicates that emotionally fulfilling relationships are integral components of mental and physical health, and that emotionally focused interventions have the power to establish and re-create supportive bonds among individuals. I am therefore dedicated to the understanding and enhancement of couple and family relationships through an emphasis on emotions and their interpersonal impact. I believe that all people can maximize their potential given a nurturing social environment, which I endeavour to foster in my work with clients.

Couples Counselor

Paul LeBlanc, MSW, RSW


1986 Fairbanks Avenue Back Door, Ottawa, ON K1H 5Y6

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 Counselor

Liesel Aranyosi, Registered Professional Counsellor

Registered Psychotherapist

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, ON K2H 5Z1

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.
