Relationship and couples counselling

Do you need to talk about …

  • Regaining lost intimacy so that you can stop feeling like roomates?
  • Infidelity in your relationship?
  • How to communicate more effectively with your partner?

Whether you are straight, gay, queer, or define your sexuality in some other way, if you're thinking about attending counselling with your partner it's usually because you're having relationship problems and things aren't going as well as you'd like:

  • Perhaps you and your partner are struggling with some aspect of your relationship
  • Maybe you'd both like to regain some of your lost intimacy
  • Perhaps you want to develop new skills for solving problems.

I’ve been a couples counsellor for many years and have a wealth of experience: my clients tell me that I'm able to get to the heart of their problems quickly. And it's very helpful to have a safe environment for counselling, where you can both be heard and understood, and also where both of you are responsible for the role you play in the problem. This is exactly what I provide for you at rethink.

I can help you to work on better communication, how to be an effective partner but still maintain your own identity, ways to improve your intimacy, and your parenting skills. Counselling for couples can also be useful if you have decided to part ways but wish to work towards a healthy friendship or resolve co-parenting issues.

Free 30 minute consultation

If you’re not sure about counselling for couples, or about rethink, I offer a free 30-minute consultation. I don’t ask for any commitment: you just need to show up, ask questions, and determine whether you feel comfortable.

If you’d like to book a 30 minute session, call 604.803.2600.
