Therapy for Couples

Most relationships face challenges at some point or another. Couples therapy can offer many benefits to partners at any stage of their relationship, whether it is a new relationship or you have been married for many years and are seeking marriage counselling.

Couples therapy addresses problems between intimate partners. These sessions provide a safe space for couples to speak, think and express feelings freely. Working with a couples therapist addresses obstacles and conflicts in order to move towards achieving the ultimate goals set by the couple. The psychologist or therapist works to care for the couple as a whole, rather than make judgments about who is right or wrong, so that each member feels equally supported. Working with a provincially regulated and experienced therapist and having an impartial and well-trained listener can help couples work through challenges together and come out stronger.
