Couples Counselling

Even the best relationships can be difficult to sustain in ways that provide for the needs, expectations, and desires of both partners over time. Troubled marriages are even more difficult to maintain, and one or both partners often feel used, neglected, silenced, squashed, empty, or in the worst cases, abused.

Though being in a relationship is a norm in our culture, few are properly taught how to participate meaningfully in a relationship, including effective ways to communicate, dealing with conflict in fair and respectful ways, negotiating win-win outcomes, and balancing one's personal needs against the needs of the other.

Whether your relationship is new and you want to ensure its effectiveness and well-being into the future, or more mature and struggling under the burden of hurt, disappointment, or betrayal, counselling/coaching can help. Especially where both partners are committed and motivated to improve the relationship, vast improvements can be made to transform the relationship into one that is considerably more solid, stable, and mutually satisfying.
