Marriage Counselling, also called ‘couples therapy’ is a way to help couples – married or not – improve their relationship and resolve conflicts. Most couples seek couple therapy to improve communication. A trained couple therapist can help couples sort through important issues, discover alternative solutions and achieve the couple, lifestyle and family goals couples desire.” My approach has always been to coach and guide couples through talking to ‘each other’ instead of just ‘to the therapist’. I believe the real INTERFACE of change is Face-2-Face. ” (John H)
Meeting with a couple therapist can help couples:
- Improve communication skills
- Improve goal setting and financial planning
- Increase problem solving and negotiation skills
- Increase intimacy and connection
- Reduce conflict patterns and tension in the relationship

Couple-Mississauga: “It’s like John ‘got us’. He really made us feel comfortable despite our own tension. My husband was amazed at how John used humour in insightful ways.
