marriage counselling approach

Ottawa Marriage Counselling Services

Our Approach

Our therapeutic method at Marriage Therapists Ottawa is focused on two lines of inquiry:

  • How emotionally connected are you to your significant people, such as your partner, kids, or parents, right now?
  • What childhood scars prevent you from having more solid and loving connections with other people?

We have a wholly original method of therapy called Attachment in Family Therapy (AFT), which draws on emotionally focused relationship therapy and family-of-origin therapy. Our therapists collaborate with couples to pinpoint the fundamental problems in their union and create workable solutions to enhance communication, fortify emotional ties, and increase trust and intimacy.

Addressing the Myths About Marriage Therapy

Despite the many advantages of marriage counselling, getting treatment for relationship problems still carries a stigma. Many people are afraid or embarrassed to confess that their marriage is having problems, and they may fear that going to counselling is a sign of weakness. But it’s crucial to understand that asking for help is a brave and proactive move toward repairing your relationship.

  • Marriage counselling is available for couples who want to improve their relationship as well as those who have major problems.
  • Therapy may help even the healthiest relationships.
  • Even while counselling may be an investment, the cost of divorce and the related legal costs may be significantly higher.
  • Seeking therapy is a show of strength and
    determination to repair your relationship, not failure.

We believe that by dispelling misconceptions and stigma associated with marriage counselling, more couples would turn to it when they need it. At Marriage Therapists Ottawa, we’re dedicated to offering a secure, encouraging, and judgment-free environment to assist couples in overcoming obstacles and fortifying their relationships.
