Couples counselling brings couples or partners together for joint counselling sessions.

Working with a counselor, you’ll learn skills to solidify your relationship. These skills might include communicating openly, learning how to negotiate, making agreements, and discussing differences rationally.

Together you will look at the functioning parts of your relationship as well as the parts that are not functioning as you pinpoint and better understand the sources of your conflicts.

At times there is a longer wait list for couples’ counselling.
Some options while you are waiting is to attend
Individual Counselling or our Essential Life Skills Winter & Spring 2022 Series

Once completed the application kindly send all Intake Forms to our email:

To be matched with a couples counselor both parties need to review the
Orientation Package 2022
and each partner must submit the VCP Couples Intake Form 2022

Please note our Couples Counselling wait list may be longer than normal, we are working as fast and efficiently to make sure you are matched with an available counsellor.
