Marriage Counselling / Couples Counselling
Our Guelph therapists can help you with your relationship in an individual setting or in a couples setting
Do you want to relight your passion in your marriage?
Are you struggling to like your partner?
Do you feel trapped in your relationship?
Do you miss the intimacy you once had?
Struggling in your relationship makes everything else in life more difficult. Couples often find themselves stuck in a cycle that seems like an infinity loop. Blame, contempt, shutting down, anger, criticism and defensiveness are often the result of past hurts, lack of communication skills and attachment fears such as “Am I good enough?”, “Are they good enough?”, “Do they really care?”
Seeking couples therapy when you notice any of these issues is wise and can be a game-changer in your relationship. Our skilled couples therapists can help you move towards a new cycle of love and connection that allows for increased intimacy and warmth.
How do we help? We work on communication skills, and we also explore the deeper vulnerabilities that may have led to the cycle of disconnection in your relationship. This is vital, as communication skills alone are often not enough to establish or maintain a healthy relationship. Our therapists integrate Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the Gottman model of couples therapy, as well as other models, to work towards positive outcomes in your relationship.
