Couples Therapy, Counselling in North York, Scarborough, Markham & Toronto, ON
Nobody sets out to have a failed marriage or relationship but over time we can find the people we seemingly love the most create the strongest negative emotional reactions in us or we can feel like strangers living separate lives. In Couples Therapy there are often very serious issues such as violence and infidelity, however, most of the time the complaints that are brought to therapy are what I consider surface issues such as finances, managing the kids or sharing household responsibilities. However, the real issues have to do with our emotional connection and whether we feel our partner will be there when we need them and if they will put us first. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy or EFT which helps couples restore their emotional connection. Research studies have found approximately 90% of couples show significant improvements with EFT. In my work with couples, I help them to have the awareness to understand their negative cycles and have the communication skills to effectively communicate their deepest needs.
