Your partner forms your key relationship in life, and like most relationships, it’s not without its challenges.

Your past doesn't define you

When you spend so much time with someone, there’s bound to be occasional conflict, misunderstandings and sometimes disappointment. There can be bigger hurts, too. Fortunately, time together can be spent improving that bond.

 

Relationships are complex, and sometimes leave you feeling lost and alone. With some effort, they can also be extremely rewarding. We are committed to helping you and your partner build a stronger, more fulfilling connection. 

 

Our couples therapy can guide you and your loved one through a positive journey to better loving and understanding each other. Whether you’re working through a major conflict or simply want to be closer to each other, learn to communicate better, or provide positive role models for your family, relationship healing is possible with our help.

How Couples Therapy Works

We work with you to develop effective communication, conflict resolution, and empathy. We help you nurture a healthier, more loving relationship. Our goal is to help you feel more united as a couple, create a deeper connection, and provide you with the tools to navigate challenges with grace and compassion.

One of our major goals is to support partners in articulating their feelings honestly. Each person needs to attentively hear their partner's perspective. This is both the challenge and the aim of couples therapy, and our wide range of experiences in counselling will guide the way.

We can help those struggling with:

  • communication difficulties
  • trust issues
  • conflicts
  • feeling emotionally disconnected from your partner

  • These can all impact your daily life, causing feelings of sadness, frustration, and anxiety. Our couples therapy will offer you a supportive and safe space to work through your challenges, develop healthy communication skills, build trust, and address conflicts in a constructive manner.

    Therapy can help you set healthy boundaries and offer the tools and support you need to create the connection you crave. When you understand each other better, you can build a more loving, trusting and joyful connection. It’s worth it!

    With over 40 years of private practice experience, our approach at Better Life Counselling & Therapy centers around the belief that you are already whole. It is our job to provide the support and guidance you need to bring forth the best version of yourself.

    We help you connect with the right therapist for your needs in a safe and welcoming environment. Our experienced team provides the support, tools and evidenced-based treatments to build a life that feels better.

    Trauma may be part of your life story but it does not define who you are now or in the future.
