Normally these sessions should be scheduled a week apart to discuss the couple before the next session. Special consideration will be made for those who live outside Edmonton and the area. Please contact the office for more information and to schedule the sessions.

Every couple is unique and might derive different benefits from counselling. However, some general positives that you and your partner can expect from our marriage counselling in Edmonton are:
Deeper understanding: Marriage counselling helps you identify positive and negative patterns by giving you a deeper understanding of your dynamic.
Objective advice: As your marriage counsellors, we can function as an impartial sounding board. We will listen to your and your partner's opinions and offer constructive feedback.
Safe space: Marriage counselling provides the ideal place to open up and discuss your opinions and feelings to navigate conflict. You might not be able to find this safe space without a marriage counsellor's assistance, which can prevent honest and meaningful discussions.
Coping skills: A marriage counsellor can equip you and your partner with effective tools to better manage future conflicts. Not only do we help you resolve current roadblocks, but we can provide you with a roadmap for the future.
