Emotion Focused Couple Therapists work with individuals, couples, and families as they deal with the stress in their lives. The counselling relationship is critical for success when working with individuals or couples. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist , I will provide an initial consultation free of charge. During this time you can ask me questions to determine your level of comfort. Your connection with me is vital to the therapy process and is open to ongoing discussion as you engage in therapy.
I will also provide information on fees, the therapy process, therapy options and an overview of your therapy agreement, which should be signed as you begin therapy.
Partners experiencing distress in their relationship may benefit from working with a couples counselor.
I am an emotionally focused couple counselor providing marriage counselling and couple therapy services via Online counselling to clients throughout Ontario and Nova Scotia.
Many people wonder what is a healthy marriage? Emotionally Focused Therapy can help couples develop and sustain a healthy bond. Take some time to watch the video clip below. Sue Johnson, developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and author of best selling books on couples relationships, discusses how to tell if your relationship is in distress. At times choosing couple therapy is the help necessary for some couples to create a secure and loving bond.
How can I tell if my marriage is in trouble, and what can I do to prevent breakup?
Often at the core of depression, anxiety, substance abuse and/or addictions are personal challenges.
These change points are frequently tied to emotions that are difficult to manage. Getting support with emotional challenges can make the difference between just "getting through" something difficult and growing stronger through something difficult.
I provide online counselling services to individuals throughout Ontario and Nova Scotia. I begin by thoroughly understanding your attachment history, as well as how you were supported (or not) through difficult challenges in your past.
This article by Sue Johnson helps explain the basis of EFT for individuals. Though written for therapists, it provides a general overview of how EFIT works in practice. This article explains how EFT creates a secure understanding of what previously had been emotionally shut down, dismissed or unacknowledged within the individual. Successful EFT creates a new awareness of one's needs and a secure connection with self and others so that you can feel alive and freed from rigid patterns that controlled your life.
