Yes, we do. In fact, half of the people attending The Couples Clinic are individuals.
The Couples Clinic has helped couples who have had problem with communication, blended families, insecurities, infidelity, financial struggles, intimacy, mental health issues, and addictions along with many other issues.
It depends on the couple, as every person has different learning styles. Homework could be as simple as doing a check-in with each other.
This varies from couple to couple. We have had couples come in for two sessions and others for over a year. It's what best meets your individual needs.
Yes. Love is love.
Of course, we encourage any individual who feels they would like help with their relationship to come in. Often this can be a starting point for many couples as changes start occurring with the attending parties.
We fight for any relationship whether your dating, common-law, married, same-sex, interracial, second marriages, separated, those considering marriage and everything in between. We want to help everyone.
We fight for the side of the relationship and don't side with either partner. However, if certain words or behaviour that may threaten the relationship come up, we will bring your awareness to them to start the change process.
If your relationship is 'near death' then you, more than anyone, should consider coming in. We will educate and give concrete skills to start re-building your relationship.
Two excellent book we recommend are:
1. The Seven Principals for Making A Marriage Work by John Gottman
2. Hold Me Tight by Susan Johnson
When both partners feel heard and are able to learn how to talk without escalating, often this solves the 'issues' they are having trouble with. However, if one partner refuses to make any changes, than often this brings clarity around how willing the unhappy partner is in staying in the dysfunctional relationship.
Unfortunately no. However, we have a reception area with colouring books if you need to bring a child. Children must be old enough to care for themselves for the hour while clients are in session.
No, Unfortunately we do not.
If your benefits include a Registered Social Worker then yes you will be covered. If both you and your spouse are on the benefit plan then you may be able to use both of your benefits to increase the amount of sessions.
Cash, debit, credit, cheque and e-transfers.
