We all encounter challenging situations at different times in our lives. Counselling can provide a supporting environment that allows you to explore changes you want to make in your life and provide solutions to help you get there.
Using approaches such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), your therapist will work with you to develop coping skills that will help you deal with difficult situations.

When it seems like your relationship isn’t working, you may be left feeling sad, hurt, angry, disconnected, and completely alone. Maybe something has happened and what used to bring you closeness now brings feelings of insecurity and distance. Maybe the relationship has slowly changed over time and you have pulled further and further apart. Maybe you are having feelings of hopelessness and wonder if the relationship is worth continuing. What has become certain for you is that no matter why or how you got to this point, you know that changes are needed.
Working with a therapist may help couples end the pain of relationship distress and find new ways to create secure, happy bonds with one another. Your therapist will support you and your partner, helping you to identify what may be causing the disconnection, and learn to communicate so you can turn to each other for comfort, healing and forgiveness.
Parenting can be difficult and family relationships are complex. As parents, we are doing the best we can to ensure our children are happy, healthy and flourishing. However, sometimes we need guidance, support, or reassurance to get to the relationship we want. During sessions, the therapist can help guide and support open communication with the goal of strengthening the family system.
