What is Couples Counselling?

Romantic relationships can be hard work. They require regular care to keep them functioning well. Many couples expect romance to go on forever without doing the necessary work only to face the realities of relationships. Relationship issues become more magnified when one or both parties carry a history of trauma. 

Couples counselling can help individuals learn about one another, communicate effectively and grow as individuals while becoming loving partners.

The therapist is an unbiased party who is there to help both partners function together well as a unit by providing solution-based interventions.  

FAQ:

 

Do you offer in-person therapy sessions as well as online?

Yes. We offer therapy at our location, online and by phone. 

What are the benefits of online therapy?

Benefits to online counselling include accessibility, convenience, and affordability.  If you are travelling, or live in a rural or remote area, online counselling is available as long as you have access to the internet.  Being able to receive professional counselling and therapy from the comforts of your own home or office and not needing to pay for childcare, gas, or parking, are also benefits to online counselling. However, many clients prefer to interact with their therapist in-person. Only you can determine whether in-person or online therapy is better for you.

How many counselling sessions will I need?

The number of sessions depends on your goals for therapy, types of interventions, and your presenting concern.  Sessions are typically booked once every two weeks but that may vary depending on your financial situation and schedule.     

What are your fees?

Fees for sessions are based on a sliding scale based on your household income and range from $65 to $130 for a 50 min session. Please see the fees page for more information. 

Are therapy services covered by extended health care plans?

Yes, our services are covered by most insurance companies.

What are your hours and how do I make an appointment?

We offer daytime and evening sessions, Monday to Saturday.  Please contact us by phone or email to book your preferred date and time.
