Relationship & Couples Counselling

Relationship and Couples Counselling is for people who are working on repairing, building, strengthening, and maintaining their relationships. These relationships can between two or more romantic partners (open, polyamorous, consensual non monogamy, etc.) or it could be between friends, families, or colleagues. At AVERY THERAPY CENTRE, we use approaches like the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and other relationship counselling techniques. Our counsellors are trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and welcoming of all cultures, genders, orientations, and relationship structures.

Often times, people seek counselling to increase their connection, improve their communication, and find a sense of meaning in their relationships. There are many factors that can "disrupt" the harmony between people such as unhealthy communication or behaviours, feelings of disconnection, present betrayal, guilt, or hurt, healing from past relationships, fear and worries around intimacy and sex, inability to be vulnerable, and emotional blockages or misattunement, and a variety of other factors.

The process of relationship and couples counselling is a respectful, compassionate, and exploratory approach in working collaboratively to unpack both healthy and unhealthy ways of being with each other so that all parties can move forward with more clarity, confidence, understanding, and ease. Usually by the end of this journey, you'll not only learn more about yourself but also those around you. You'll be equipped with a new understanding of relationships overall and how to authentically connect with others in a way that aligns with your values.

Our Registered Clinical Counsellors offer complimentary consultations and we have both virtual and in-person appointments available. For more information, please contact us or book directly online.
