How Couples Counselling Helps

Every relationship is a work in progress

Sometimes you and your partner may need outside support in strengthening your love, trust, and commitment to each other.

Couples therapy allows you to work with someone who will respectfully listen to both you and your partner, helping you find new and better ways of relating to one another.

Discover how to communicate your needs and wants in more loving and respectful ways. Redefine how you work through conflicts, and come together as a team to make your relationship better than ever!

What if my partner doesn't want couples counselling?

Relationship therapy is a helpful tool, even when your partner isn’t ready to participate.

If you believe that couples counselling might help your relationship, but your partner does not want to join you, you can take the first step by yourself. Your counsellor will focus on the relationship, offering reflections on what both you and your partner can do to repair or improve the situation.

Even if your partner doesn't join you, couples counselling can help you:

  • Better understand how you and your partner respond to one another when times are tough
  • Explore what you can do to resolve your relationship problems
  • Identify and process personal issues you bring into the relationship
  • Have an impartial person listen and support you in making decisions about your relationship

Therapy for Infidelity

Regain the love and trust in your relationship

Have you or your partner been unfaithful in your relationship?

Are you wishing to heal your relationship from infidelity?

How would things be different if you restored the trust you once shared?

  • Regain the trust you once had between you and your partner
  • Use this challenging experience to deepen and strengthen the bond you share
  • Process difficult feelings in a safe space
  • Re-establish your needs and wants between you and your partner
  • Explore possibilities for moving forward beyond infidelity

How Counselling for Infidelity Helps

Infidelity can feel like an impossible hurdle in your relationship, but it doesn’t have to be a deal breaker.

It is possible to heal your relationship and become a stronger team.

A supportive counsellor can help you navigate the complicated process of healing.

Explore this challenge in a safe space, and begin to redefine your relationship. Become stronger as individuals, and as a couple. Move beyond infidelity and create the relationship you have always longed for – together!

Unsure if you want to stay in your relationship?

Sometimes infidelity is a way of creating a way out.

When a partner or couple chooses to end the relationship, counselling can still be helpful.

Partners who cheat can gain support in processing feelings of regret and guilt.

For those who have been cheated on, counselling can offer space to process feelings of hurt, betrayal, and anger.

Counselling can help both partners understand the reasoning behind the infidelity. A therapist can support you both in processing your grief over the loss of the relationship, learning from the experience, and creating space for preferred relationships in the future.


Sex Therapy

Revitalize your sex life

Do you wish it was easier to connect with your partner?

Have things in the bedroom become dull, or even a chore?

  • Explore new ways of being intimate
  • Heal past hurts and feel safe being intimate
  • Learn how to have your sexual needs met

How Sex Therapy Helps

Sex therapy offers a safe space to explore your sexual needs and desires.

It can help you and your partner find solutions to common issues in the bedroom that medical treatments haven't been able to address.

Feel comfortable getting support by working with a nonjudgmental, compassionate counsellor, who is knowledgeable and experienced helping people like you.

  • Learn new ways to pleasure yourself and your partner.
  • Rediscover how to set the mood in your relationship.
  • Connect more deeply.
  • Feel energized and excited again!

Who Seeks Sex Therapy?

Sex therapy is for any person or couple who feels that there is something lacking in their sex life.

Sex therapy can be done individually or with a partner. If you are in a relationship and are feeling challenged in your sex life, it can be helpful to bring your partner at some point during the therapeutic process.

It is recommended that you first seek conventional medical support for common physiological problems, including:

  • Difficulty reaching or maintaining an erection
  • Low libido
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Pain in any of the sexual organs

What To Expect From Sex Therapy

When working with a sex therapist, you will take a close and careful look at the challenges you are experiencing, and collaborate to find practical solutions.

This may include having helpful conversations to resolve emotional or mental roadblocks related to your sexuality or sexual expression. It can also involve education on particular exercises to work on alone or with your partner at home.
