Couples Therapy

Do you find that you and your partner are stuck in the same negative cycle, having a hard time communicating and feeling disconnected? Relationships can be challenging and it can be hard to navigate these challenges alone. Blissful Balance Counselling has trained relationship therapists available to help you and your partner improve communication, heal from infidelity, increase empathy and more. Our therapists will work collaboratively with you and your partner to identify unresolved and underlying issues and create a treatment plan to restore balance and bliss in your relationship.

Not just for married couples

Couples therapy and marriage therapy are terms often used interchangeably, however, couples therapy can be beneficial to all couples. Blissful Balance Counselling provides an inclusive and safe space for couples of all backgrounds and family dynamics.

Hi, I'm Anna!

Registered Social Worker

I believe in developing a strong therapeutic relationship as the foundation for healing and growth and in cultivating a supportive and non-judgemental environment. I focus on Emotion-Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy to support couples with a variety of challenges. In sessions, we will explore attachment styles/strategies as we work to build strong emotional connections and repair experiences of disconnection, injury or betrayal.

Using approaches from Internal Family Systems, we will explore past experiences that influence our behaviour and perception in relationships. I aim to support both individuals in developing a greater understanding of themselves and their patterns of behaviour in relationships as well as
of their partner’s inner world. I bring an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed and strengths-based perspective to my work. I am a queer-identified person and I’m open to working with queer couples, as well as those in monogamous or polyamorous relationships. I have children and I enjoy working with people who want to explore some of the challenges and joys of parenting in a therapeutic setting.

Counselling Intern

Our ability to communicate and feel connected to those we love and share our lives with may sometimes be impacted by various challenges. Using an emotionally focused approach, I help couples identify old patterns of interacting that are no longer working and guide them to find new ways of communicating and strengthening their emotional bond.

Together, we will use Emotion-Focused Therapy techniques to explore the negative cycles existing in your relationship, past experiences, trauma, attachment styles, needs, and fears. The goal is to enhance bonding and attachment within your relationship.

Hi, I'm Danielle!

Hi, I'm Husainat!

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

With a therapeutic presence of attentiveness, respect, non-judgment, and compassion, I provide couples with a safe space to explore their relationship challenges. I use an anti-oppressive, intersectional, and culturally sensitive lens that recognizes and supports each client’s unique cultural identity and context.

In my work as a couple’s therapist, I work with couples to develop a relationship that thrives with secure emotional bonds, effective and respectful communication, and healthy conflict resolution. To achieve this, I primarily use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) which concentrates on the role of emotions and emotional communication in the ways we interact.

We will work on improving the compassion and acceptance that you and your partner (s) show each other to help all parties become more understanding of and responsive to each other’s needs. The goal is always for your relationship to become a haven for vulnerability, growth, and a safe and trusting emotional connection.
