Couples

Counselling

Intimate relationships should be rewarding and fulfilling! Connection is at the core of every human’s basic need. It’s a matter of emotional and relational survival. Couples Counselling can strengthen mental and emotional wellbeing by deepening the love in your relationship. It can be truly terrifying when our needs are not met in our relationship or we do not know how to get them met. Couples Therapy can help deepen your physical and emotional connection with your partner.

BENEFITS OF COUPLES COUNSELLING

  • Deepen connection and intimacy in your romantic relationship.
  • Develop new skills for navigating difficult conversations.
  • Learn to communicate positively and assertively during conflict.
  • Gain the ability to touch your partner on an emotional level.
  • Feel calm and confident in your relationship.
  • Create a secure base with each other so that you can feel safe and secure taking risks outside your relationship in other areas of life.
  • Identify your unique “attachment” pattern, both individually and as a couple.
  • Find out what’s at the root of your relational distress and what’s getting in the way of shared dreams.
  • Increase your awareness of the patterns that are destroying your relationships.
  • Understand your own and your partner’s needs and triggers in the relationship.

Counselling can help relationships that are just a few months old or 60 + years in the making. Through counselling you can gain relational awareness – there is a science behind why relationships do not work and it has nothing to do with your partner being the “wrong” fit.

Relational conflict can lead to health issues, loss of sleep, separation, divorce, eating disorders, loneliness and ultimately unhealthy coping methods. Thankfully, there are other options and counselling can reduce these symptoms and treat the root cause within just a few months.

Children / Family Counselling

When it comes to children and youth, we understand that the young brain is developing and children are trying to make sense of their world. We know that often times this looks like experimenting behaviors, unwanted behaviors, or challenging behaviors. We approach youth as they are and understand they are undergoing deep levels of transformation. We seek to meet youth where they are and help them by being someone they can trust to guide their thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. We work with a variety of children, including autistic children and their families.

WE WANT TO WORK WITH THE WHOLE SYSTEM

Here at Converging Currents we strongly believe that counselling needs to happen on the family level when little ones are involved. We don’t want to replace your role in your child’s life and your ability to help them grow and be all that they can be. Often we find that change is most effective when the family is wiling to be involved in shifting along with their child and becoming more aware of what’s going on with their little one. We often discover that the home-life greatly impacts what your child is experiencing. We do not want to create children who are dependent on counsellors, but families who know how to support their child.

Family counselling is offered for whole family systems or to parents trying to figure out how to connect with or understand their child better. Family counselling supports the strengthening of individual relationships within a family unit. It can also help parents wanting to learn about or shift to attachment-base-parenting. Attachment-based-parenting will increase connection between parents and their children. Strong family connections are a protective factor that helps prevent child or teen mischief and misbehaviors. We work with all kinds of families, including those with autist children, to help them grow and deepen their cohesion with each other.

Who we work with

We love collaborating with clients through their journey of discovery, growth and learning. It’s a joy to partner with those who are seeking to understand their particular set of personal challenges and who want positive change in their life. Our passion lies in assisting clients to build understanding and awareness regarding who they are and what’s shaped their life and experiences. We truly believe that awareness and knowledge about yourself opens up new opportunities. These opportunities empower individuals to make choices and shape their own futures.

Fee Assistance

We understand not everyone has extended benefits or the means to afford the cost of counselling. For this reason we do offer a limited amount of sliding scale spots with our student counsellor for those who qualify for this assistance.
