Couples and Family Counselling
Guidance and Practical Tools
Regardless of sexual orientation, marital status, and lifestyle, any two people who seek enhancement in their communication and relationship quality can benefit from couples counselling. Providing guidance and practical tools to effect change, I strive to help couples improve their communication skills, address issues of intimacy, and overcome obstacles to relationship growth and personal fulfilment. In addition to being Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1 certified, I practice emotionally focused couples therapy and family systems therapy.
Family counselling facilitates better communication and understanding, repairs fragmented relationships, promotes connection and healing, and supports learning of successful parenting strategies. Importantly, it offers an opportunity for mediated discussion – for individual members to speak and really be heard – with the assistance of an objective third party. Applying technique from the theories of Bowen, Adler, and Satir, I strive to facilitate the needs of each member and equip families with skills, knowledge, and insight to better address and cope with future stressors.
