Couples & Families

Counselling can help you as a couple as well as a family by:

 

  • Empowering you with effective non-judgmental, non-reactive communications skills

  • Helping you talk about goals and how to balance each others’ desires

  • Ensuring that all voices and opinions can be heard within a safe environment

  • Strengthening and enhancing your and/or your family’s relationships and bonds

  • Using the Gottman Method Couples Therapy to help you and your partner manage conflict and deepen your friendship and intimacy

  • Employing art therapy to help couples and families communicate with each other when words can be too difficult

I have over 22 years of experience working with adults, couples and families. I am currently working on completing the Level 1 & 2 for the Gottman Method Therapy. I have training in Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation.  I can also provide skills and support to the individual members as well as the family unit, allowing them all the opportunity to develop a strong and healthy relationship.

 

I believe in a family systems approach which means that when one thing or person changes in the family, it affects the whole unit. I also believe that the strength of the family lies with the parents/caregivers. Strengthening the bonds of the parent/caregiver-child relationship and building a strong attachment and connection is vital to the well-being of the family system.

 

The strong connection between parent/caregiver and child is essential to the parent’s ability to understand and support their child. We would achieve this through a combination of parent/caregiver coaching, family counselling, and, in some cases, individual counselling as well.
