Whether marriage therapy, couples therapy, or relationship counselling, every couple needs something different

Has your relationship suffered and you feel like you and your partner have been drifting apart? Are you having the same fights over and over? Couples counselling is a start!

If you and your partner are seeking couples counselling, likely there’s a good reason.  Violence, anger, substance abuse, emotional distance, lack of communication, and infidelity can all challenge a relationship and if they’re a part of the picture, we need to get honest about that.

We view the premise of couples therapy as three individuals (each partner, plus the couples therapist) coming together to create a path to healing. When each individual is committed to doing the work, being open about the ways the relationship has been hurtful, there’s room for tremendous growth.

Does Couples Counselling Work & Is It Worth It

We work with clients to help them determine and meet their goals. What actions do you need to reach your goals? How can you and your spouse get on the same page if you have different plans? What tools do you need to develop and nurture your relationship? That’s where our couples counselling therapists can help you.

If the reason that brought you here is to understand a little bit more how couples therapy works and how it may help your relationship, this article is for you!
