Couples Counselling Edmonton

Sometimes in a relationship, we don’t feel emotionally safe anymore. We grow apart. We stop communicating effectively. We struggle with intimacy. Maybe this is what’s happening in your relationship. We want to help restore that emotional safety, increase communication, and bring you two closer.

Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Counselling

Conflict is normal in relationships. However, unresolved conflict can result in communications and intimacy issues, throwing your relationship off track. When this happens, you may wonder, “Does couples counselling work?”

At the Edmonton Institute of Counselling, we utilize 2 proven-effective techniques and tools that improve communication, interaction styles, intimacy issues, and emotional blocks to restore closeness, trust, happiness, and satisfaction in couples. 

  • Gottman Counselling – The goal of the Gottman Method is to encourage couples to create love maps to enable them to uncover and understand each other’s worries, stress, joys, hopes, and history. It uses expressions of appreciation and respect to strengthen admiration and love. This couple therapy approach leans toward conflict management rather than conflict resolution.
  • Emotion-Focused Counselling – This couples therapy approach leverage the inherent power of emotions and potent motivations to allow relationships to develop and grow positively. Emotion-Focused Counselling is designed to disarm distress, conflict, and poor communication to establish a more secure and connected relationship.
