“We have greater confidence in discussing the things that really matter in our relationship.”

It made us reflect on our styles of communication, and brought about helpful discussions to improve our relationship. It gave us great tips to repair from our blips and move on from them more easily. It even brought on some laughs. By better understanding our differences, we were able to work through them. Thank you Alexa for planting the seeds for a closer connection

Couples Counselling FAQs

How much do couples counselling sessions cost?

Couples sessions start at $240 (plus GST) per 75-minute session. Payments can be made by credit card or e-transfer.

How many sessions will I need?

The length of couples counselling can vary significantly from couple to couple. Usually, the first session will be spent getting to know one another, building trust, and establishing goals for the things you hope to accomplish in therapy. Depending on your goals and the extent of your issues more or less time may be required. For couples who are in the early stages a handful of sessions may suffice, whereas couples with more entrenched issues may choose to commit to counselling for months or years.

Are there any risks to counselling?

While counselling can be an excellent source of support it’s normal to experience stronger than usual emotions when exploring difficult topics and trying out new behaviours. If you feel uncomfortable with the interventions I suggest or with the pace, know that we can adjust things as needed.
