How do you do couple counselling?
Are you starting a new family?
Is your relationship changing or being challenged?
Is your developed family starting to pull in opposite directions?
Are you having "out law" "In law" dynamics?
Is this the natural time in your life where various identities are forming? – or storming!
How do you create strong families that can respectfully communicate and have each individual needs met?
Our sessions can help you to create the home you want – a home driven by values, meaning and respect.
Our evidence-based approach includes Family Systems, EMDR, Emotion-Focused, and Gottman Techniques.
The process we use follows evidence based practices:
First session: we meet with one partner
Second session: we meet with the other partner
Third session: we will meet with both of you and provide our professional, clinical recommendation (sometimes we suggest individual therapy prior to couple work)
*if you would like to do one session together before the individual work we are happy to accommodate
While this may feel like it takes longer we have found that the success rates for couples who follow this process are much higher. Research shows that allowing each partner the freedom, space, and time in couples counseling to develop therapist rapport, feel heard, provide privacy and explore dynamics leads to more positive outcomes.
Please note: if you are working with an individual therapist before you start couples counselling we believe that ethically it's a conflict of interest to have the same therapist provide couple work; instead one of our amazing team members will be happy to provide the couple counselling!
