Couples Counselling

Counselling and psychotherapy can help you resolve life issues and create strategies and supports for positive change.  Through a therapeutic process that promotes self-awareness, healing, integration and personal growth, clients develop a greater capacity for full and healthy living.

Couples Counselling

Couple counselling is helpful for couples who want to:



  • create healthier patterns of relating,
  • heal from a relationship crisis,
  • develop greater fulfillment in their relationship, and/or
  • have support in making relationship decisions and transitions



When couples first come to see me, one or both partners have a concern about their relationship but have been unable to resolve it on their own.  There may be a specific dynamic in the relationship that is problematic.  Other times, there are events that have occurred that have caused hurt or crisis in the relationship.





In each scenario, I work with the couple to:

  • identify and interrupt negative dynamics in the relationship,
  • develop healthier patterns of communication,
  • listen to and re-discover one another,
  • deepen their understanding of themselves and each other in the relationship, and
  • strengthen the capacity of their relationship so issues can be resolved effectively



My approach is focused on the relationship as my client; hence I am not a mediator between two individuals.  I serve as a facilitator, coach and therapist to the relationship.  I am committed to helping partners develop a respectful, healthy and mature base from which their hurts and problems can then be resolved.
