Couple Therapy

Experiencing relationships the way you want to. 

Couple Therapy, Relationship Therapy/Counselling, Marriage Counselling all speak to the same service. This is where the therapist typically meets with individuals who are, have been, and/or might consider being in a relationship with one another. 

$160-$175 + HST per 50 minutes. Fees range depending on experience of therapist. Our Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Marriage Therapists who offer couple therapy are listed on our Individual Therapist page.

$90 +HST per 50 minutes. All therapists who are currently offering reduced rate couple therapy services are listed on our Affordable Therapists page.

The standard Couple Therapy session is for 50 minutes. Sessions can also be accessed for 80 minutes. In some occassions, sessions can be pro-rated at other lengths of time. The length of session depends on client’s preferences, therapeutic benefit and goals.

The centre requires 48 business hours notice (not including weekends or holidays) or the full fee per sessions may apply.

There is a common misconception that couples therapy, relationship counselling, marriage counselling is only accessed when things are ‘really bad’. However, there are several other stages where it may be helpful to pursue therapy and see a marriage and family therapist: 

  • Contemplating or committing to start a relationship
  • Making changes. to your relationship structure (ex. opening up the relationship, becoming exclusive, separating, divorcing, getting married, having children etc.)
  • Hoping to strengthen/better understand partner/relationship (ex. working on communication, intimacy, processing infidelity, preparing for transitions, working towards better parenting alignment etc.)
  • Committing to amicably ending a relationship. 
  • Discernment counselling (exploring whether you want to be in the relationship moving forward or not).

Our Approach To Couples Therapy

 When providing couples therapy and relationship counselling we will work together in creating common goals and exploring who partners are as individuals, and what their values, beliefs, hopes, expectations, strengths are that they each bring to the relationship. We will explore interactional patterns and identify and strengthen the helpful patterns while identifying and interrupting the distressing ones. With our marriage counselors we offer free consultations to help you begin your journey.

We will work diligently in containing and facilitating our dialogues in a way where we maximize opportunities for all partners in gaining greater clarity, knowledge, skills, techniques and resources.
