Who Needs Couples Counselling?
Couples counselling Vancouver focuses on providing couples with an experience that helps them resolve the distance and conflict in their relationship and move towards a stronger connection. Clearheart Counselling Vancouver offers a safe, non-judgemental way to create a space where you can express yourselves better. You may like to consider counselling if you are constantly unhappy, dissatisfied, or frustrated in your relationship. It can also be of help if you are struggling to make sense of a breakup or separation.
Lets Work Together
Couples counselling works by re-opening and strengthening communication between you and your partner. During couple counselling, you need to work together with your partner and address disagreements, including infidelity, affairs, or any variety of past occurrences that may be leading to current distress in the relationship. The goal of couples counselling is to establish healthy communication between couples and build positive lines of interaction while exploring past behaviours. It aims at identifying the patterns to the behaviours and, if there are any patterns, it analyzes their root cause. Our clinical counsellors will work with you and your partner together and independently to reach a solution that works for both.
