"Leslie's personal style, calm, gentle, and careful insights zeroed in on our communication difficulties in such an expert way, that we could understand the areas of difficulty, without laying blame.  We came away with much to think about and try to practice.  There was no glossing over the issues, we were left feeling that you had exposed the weak areas, but we still felt good about the session, and each other. A heartfelt thanks".

"Leslie carefully and methodically unraveled our challenges for us and enabled us to see our situation, our difficulties and most importantly how love can enable us to work through these minefields. We always felt safe with Leslie. She was wise in guiding us and bringing us back to each other for strength and comfort. Our gratitude is immeasurable. It can be summed up in one work: SUCCESS" 

"Leslie brings many gifts to the profession, including well-honed clinical skills that are rooted in an elegantly integrated theoretical perspective and an unwavering commitment to ethical practice. Leslie offers clients authentic warmth and transparency, along with a high degree of professionalism." 

Couples Therapy & Relationship Counselling

Couples Therapy & Relationship Counselling

Couples seek therapy and relationship counselling for a variety of reasons. At times, marriages and relationships can be impacted by: conflict, transitions, emotions, loss of passion / intimacy, communication, and or infidelity.

I have helped many couples through these difficult issues, and seeking relationship, marriage counselling, or couples therapy for your intimate relationship is a courageous step towards to the best outcome. The good news is research has shown that couples relationship therapy works. Research also shows that couples’ who attend couple's relationship counselling increase the health of their relationship from the moment they enter into the therapy process. 

Below are a few of the benefits of couples therapy and marriage counselling:

• Feel more loved and connected
• Feel you can trust your partner
• Feel respected        
• Feel your partner gets you
• Fight less

How Couples Therapy and Relationship Counselling Works

Relationship therapy works best when each partner in the room is focused on themselves. Some of the time people come to couples therapy hoping their significant other/others will change, however, it is best to have personal awareness or shifts for yourself. Marriage counselling and therapy is not about advice giving or "lying on a couch". It is also not a way to get someone else to change, or a quick fix to correct someone else. Couples therapy is an active and collaborative process between you, your partner and your therapist. If you are coming for relationship therapy, your therapist will not "decide" who is "right" or "choose sides". Your therapist will work for the hopes and visions of the relationship. 

Couples are sometimes nervous to start therapy but find that they look forward to coming to sessions with me because it is a time in the week when they feel closer to their partner and look forward to talking about issues in a safe environment. Therapy works. See for yourself.
