Counselling Services in British Columbia
Relationships can be very challenging and may not provide the support and satisfaction we would like. Difficulties arise for many reasons such as extra marital affairs and betrayals, ongoing conflict, addiction issues, past trauma, financial problems, parenting issues etc. The Gottman Method of Couples Counselling is based on over 40 years of research by John Gottman and offers an empirical based model of intervention starting with a full assessment of your current functioning -both strengths and challenges- and working towards a healthier relationship. We want you to enjoy the relationship you deserve. One that provides you with emotional support and the companionship you desire.
