Couples Counselling / Marriage Counselling and Premarital Counselling

I am trained in the Gottman approach to couples counselling which is based on 50 years of research into what makes relationships thrive or fail.

I use the Gottman approach combined with attachment theory and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy)  in order to help you and your partner resolve issues on a deeper level. While it is sometimes helpful to have someone to mediate a dispute between you and your partner it is often more effective to address and resolve core issues causing conflict in your relationship.

Common issues couples bring to therapy include:

  • Communication
  • Infidelity/affairs
  • Family of origin problems
  • Adjusting to life changes including new parenting
  • Loss of connection or attraction (not feeling in love anymore)
  • Sexual concerns
  • Conflict over day to day issues
  • Premarital Counselling or relationship enrichment

In my couples work I am open and inclusive and comfortable working with LGBTQ2S+ clients.
