The change I experienced helped me in every aspect of my life. If you’re looking for a therapist for yourself or a family member, don't hesitate to call. I have no doubt they’ll be able to help you."

Vaughan Counselling 3Professional

We are proud of our reputation of providing quality counselling services in our
Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) gives priority to the emotions experienced by the people (family member or partner) attending the session. Evoking the primary emotions, while managing stirred up compelling responses, helps the couple (or family) better organize themselves and aids each person in responding more congruently with each other.

Our goal is to create a safe, egalitarian relationship with our partners. Emotional responses are shaped and constructed so each couple can feel safe when expressing themselves. We teach our couples how to respond in this way on an ongoing basis. Couples are taught to recognize that much of their behaviours are influenced by social learning and each of them participate in a ‘cycle’ that keeps them stuck from successful conflict resolution.

EFT meta-analysis studies suggest that 70-73% of couples describe themselves as recovered from marital distress and 90% report having significantly improved after treatment. EFT has also demonstrated success across cultures and social classes.  

Many relationships experience difficulty with conflict and excess negative emotion.  Being apart of a high-conflict relationship is exhausting and often leaves both partners feeling frustrated and miserable. Research suggests that being in a high conflict relationship can lead to increased rates of depression, anxiety and substance abuse.

Our goal at our clinic is to identify variables that may influence the dysfunctional communication you and your partner experience. Together, we will work with you in developing goals for treatment and ensuring you are on the right path to success. We do this by monitoring progress session-by-session and providing guidance every step of the way.

Our clinic will only teach you research supported communication skills and techniques. You will be exposed to material that will help you assess your own communication style (both healthy and unhealthy) and how to effectively use your new knowledge in best practice. We also help our clients learn how to listen and respond empathetically, use appropriate guidelines for decision-making, and teach skills to help deescalate a situation.
