Research studies repeatedly demonstrate the effectiveness of marriage and family therapy in treating the full range of mental and emotional disorders and health problems … Over three-fourths of those receiving marital/couples or family therapy report an improvement in the relationship.
Quoted from the AAMFT website
Our emotions and behaviors often affect one another in significant relationships. In Family Therapy or Family Counselling, we meet with the whole family or a few family members to facilitate changes and to nurture development. One of the goals in family counselling is to facilitate the family finding a healthier balance within their family system. However, sometimes working with the whole family may not be always possible. Therefore, our registered clinical counsellors will also work with an individual in the counselling process from a family systemic perspective. The goal is to support an individual family member to explore how a relationship, marriage, partnership or family system impacts the individual emotionally or behaviorally.
Couples Counselling /Marital Therapy:
Couple counselling or Marital Therapy can help facilitate necessary changes within a couple relationship. Sometimes couples seek marriage counselling for nurturing further enrichment of their relationships. In some cases, couple may also seek counselling after a crisis or when their interactions are impacting their lives in hurtful ways. In couple counselling, we aim to create a shift in both partners’ interaction pattern in order to foster intimacy and more secure bonding between them.
While we are all excited about planning ahead for our dreamed family and may get overwhelmed with all the wedding details, pre-marital counselling is actually an important aspect for any couple who is planning to get married. Every relationship has its ups and downs. There is bound to be a time when a couple may face multiple challenges and transitions. In pre-marital counselling, couples will get a chance to explore their strengths as well as areas for growth in their relationship.
We also provide PREPARE/ENRICH certified pre-marital counselling for couples with Christian background upon request.
