Can Couples Counselling or Marriage Therapy Work for You?

Dealing with relationship and marriage concerns can be extremely stressful, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Couples counselling and marriage therapy will provide you with insight, clarity, tools and strategies, communication skills, support and encouragement to reconnect with your partner and build the relationship you’ve always wanted.

Susan’s approach to couples counselling and marriage therapy involves exploring new ways of thinking, communicating and behaving, emphasizes the importance of kindness, respect and admiration and focuses on your strengths as a couple as the foundation for greater trust, happiness, intimacy and a closer connection.


Couples counselling and marriage therapy sessions take place in a confidential, warm, supportive and non-judgmental environment which allows you to express yourself openly and work collaboratively toward your specific counselling goals as a couple. Your desired changes occur through shifts in perception, lifestyle changes and making your relationship a higher priority.

Susan’s approach to couples counselling and marriage therapy integrates emotional-focused therapy (EFT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), relationship counselling, parenting counselling and communication and trust-building skills. Areas of expertise include:

  • creating a closer connection
  • rebuilding trust
  • increasing intimacy
  • changing patterns of communication and behaviour
  • conflict resolution
  • overcoming infidelity
  • codependence
  • boundary setting skills
  • financial concerns
  • dating and relationship counselling
  • pre-engagement counselling
  • pre-marital counselling
  • parenting counselling
  • baby-proofing your marriage
  • extended and blended family issues
