There is no such thing as a "perfect" relationship.
Couples may seek relationship counselling or therapy at any stage, and for any number of reasons. Committing to the relationship is the first step. Getting help to make that commitment go smoother, is the second step.
Should We Get Couples Therapy?
Although every relationship is different, here are some signs to tell you when to ask for help...
Lack of sexual interest
A decrease in quality time together
Affair or betrayal
Decreased ability to manage conflict
Or you simply forgot how to love one another
Changes in your relationship can be scary! However, it also serves as an opportunity to grow individually, and together as a couple. In couples counselling or marriage counselling we will reveal unhelpful patterns that you have created in your relationship, and move towards a more positive experience. Sometimes people really are too close to their own situations to see things clearly. Having a third party be able to listen to what is happening and take an unbiased approach can he hugely beneficial. Sometimes people's relationship problems aren't as bad as they think they are... they just need a little guidance to get them back on track - that's where we come in!

What Is Your Couples Counselling Strategy Based On?
Our couples counseling therapy is based on the world-renowned Gottman Institute methodology of marriage and relationship therapy. This service begins with a thorough assessment; including interviews both together and individually, as well as a number of online assessments. The assessment takes 4-6 hours. After you have received feedback from the assessment we will work together to overcome weaknesses in the relationship. Treatment length varies depending on your unique relationship needs.
Do You Also Offer Marriage Counselling?
Yes. Marriage counselling and couples counselling are very similar. All marriages are couples but not all couples are married. Many of the same methods used to help couples in common law or longterm relationships are also used for couples who are married. Learn All About Marriage Counselling in our blog!
