Private/Effective Couples Counselling
Couples therapy is for anyone in Windsor / Essex County seeking to enhance their relationship. Whether you are married or dating, a new or older couple, or living in a common-law situation, couples counselling can dramatically enhance your relationship. Couples therapy involves helping you to learn strategies that will assist you in creating and building a long-lasting relationship filled with love, trust, respect and satisfaction. You can vastly improve the chances that your relationship will progress in a healthy and natural manner resulting in a stronger bond that will last a lifetime.
People often enter into a marriage without realizing the challenges that they may one day face as a couple. Pre-Marriage Prepartion helps ensure that your relationship will be built on a solid foundation from the beginning. Learning to communicate openly, finding out who your spouse really is before marriage, and accepting them as they are now is often overlooked by newlyweds.
Couples therapy can help you determine that you are on the right path to a long-lasting life of happiness, love, and respect.
Changes in Family Dynamics
Changes in the structure of your family can be sudden, unexpected, and difficult to deal with. Even family changes that are expected and positive can create tension and emotional issues that are unforeseen. The death of a loved one, an unexpected pregnancy, and blended families are just some of the changes in family dynamics that can create friction in an otherwise happy relationship. Couples therapy can give you healthy strategies to help you deal with family changes smoothly, reducing stress and friction.
Major Life Events
Even the most loving, respectful relationship can be undermined by changes due to major life events. Deciding whether to take a job transfer, for example, may be an easy decision for one member of a couple, but not the other. The birth of a child, death of a family member, loss of a job, and chronic illness are just some of the major life events that can upset the most well-balanced relationship. Couples therapy can help you find ways to deal with these unique situations in a constructive manner that adds to your relationship instead of damaging it.
Unique Relationship Situations
Blended families, cultural differences and alternative lifestyle relationships all come with unique challenges. Forces and influences from both within and outside the relationship can affect the level of stress, happiness, and respect between you and your significant other. If you are in a relationship facing disapproval from children, ex-partners, parents, friends, or others, you need to create an even stronger bond to deal with your challenges together.
