Edmonton Couples Counselling

What is Couples Counselling?

Couples counselling or marriage therapy is a form of psychotherapy designed to improve your relationship and resolve interpersonal conflict. Many Edmonton couples have problems in their relationship and may have difficulties in resolving them on their own. Some people have difficulty in expressing themselves, sharing their thoughts and feelings, or letting emotions get in the way of a healthy conversation.

We are experts in helping couples improve their relationships through couples counselling or marriage therapy in Edmonton. Many of our clients are monogamous couples that have problems in their relationship. Some of our clients are in polygamous or polyamorous relationships. We’re open minded and non-judgemental. Our relationship counselling experts are here to listen and provide support with expertise and compassion.

What are the Scientific Benefits of Couples Counselling?

We have specialized training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the most clinically validated model for couples counselling. Many studies have found that EFT is an effective way to restructure distressed couple relationships into safe and secure bonds with long-lasting results.

According to the American Journal of Family Therapy, EFT is equally effective at reducing symptoms of major depressive disorders from relationship distress compared to pharmacotherapy (i.e. desipramine, trimipramine, or trazadone).

Furthermore, an fMRI study conducted with a neuroscientist found that EFT reduces the brain’s response to threat in the presence of a romantic partner.

Another study in the International Journal of Fertility & Sterility found that:

EFT has a significant, positive effect on enhancement of marital adjustment. Life quality of infertile couples significantly increased via application of EFT. This approach improved the physical, psychological and social relationships of infertile couples and enhanced their social environment.

How Does Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Work?

EFT is based on the premise that human emotions are connected to human needs, and emotions have an innate adaptive potential that can help individuals and couples change problematic emotional states.

EFT includes elements of experiential therapy (person-centred therapy and Gestalt therapy), systemic therapy, and attachment theory.

Our emotionally focused therapy process begins with forming a safe space for you and your partner. We learn how to understand your dysfunctional conflict patterns and use the power of vulnerable emotions to help you get out of the gridlocked pattern and into a more supportive dynamic that meets both of your emotional needs.

We will talk about what you want out of your relationship and review your issues within the context of our cultural messages about relationships. We will also discuss your previous experiences in relationships and how those adaptations may be affecting you now.
