Our counsellors are all experienced, caring professionals with advanced degrees who have been accredited and certified by their professional associations.
In co-therapy, two counsellors (male and female) work together with the couple to resolve the issues that are troubling them. Alternating weekly sessions are the norm – one week with both counsellors and the couple together, and the next in individual sessions where the four break into teams of two.
This four person structure has many advantages: there is no sense of marginalization, isolation, or of the therapist appearing to favour one partner (common problems in traditional therapy); both genders are equally represented; and each partner is heard both individually and as part of the couple. Co-therapy also allows one therapist to direct joint sessions while the other fills the role of active clinical observer (alternating as needed).
Every couple has challenges, whether they're new or have been building for some time. We can help with:
