Rebuild Your Relationship

Whether the core issues stem from mistrust, miscommunication, or attachment styles, long-standing patterns of conflict can be altered, even when that seems impossible.

All you need is the right therapeutic support and willingness to work together towards the goal of a loving relationship. Your therapist will guide you and your partner to facilitate emotional healing, restore mutual trust and deepen connections.

As experts in attachment-based therapies and mindfulness tools, we provide a safe environment to explore the deeper relational patterns and recreate a path towards mutual growth and togetherness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find some of the most common questions that couples ask prior to beginning a therapeutic  journey to improve their relationship. Please contact us if you have any further inquiries. 

Do you feel overwhelmed by problems or stress?

No. Not all therapists are qualified — psychologists or psychotherapists are required to undergo specific training for treating couples. At Bhatia Psychology Group, we do have a number of therapists with this particular background.

Should we still do therapy if we are considering separation or divorce?

Yes. It’s common for couples to attend therapy when considering a separation or divorce because it can help aid in encouraging an amicable split. If there are children involved, it can also help with the parenting process. Through therapy, a couple may also work through difficulties and decide to give their relationship another chance.

Should we still do therapy if one partner has an addiction/substance abuse problem?

When you start couples’ therapy, your therapist will complete an assessment to understand where each partner is in the process. If one partner has a substance abuse challenge, he or she may be required to receive individual support or addiction counselling, as well. When you sit down with a therapist at Bhatia Psychology Group, we strive to understand your relationship, the challenges, and guide both of you in a positive direction.

What if one partner doesn't want to attend the sessions?

Couples counselling only works if both partners are interested, agree to cooperate in the process and attend the therapeutic session(s).

Is couples’ therapy just for relationships in crisis?

No. Some couples come to therapy to work on enhancing certain parts of their relationship — whether it’s intimacy, connecting, learning to be better parents or processing life transitions. It can be a way to enhance communication, closeness or manage life’s changes.

Do we need to be married for couples counselling?

No. You are not required to be married, or even common-law.

How long does it take to see positive changes?

Each couple is unique, so it depends on where the couple is in their journey. Simply attending counselling is an excellent start. You may see positive changes as soon as your first session — simply by starting the process. Couples therapy in general has been shown to be an effective form of treatment.
