Online Counselling for Couples
Today’s technology allows counsellors, such as myself, to provide valuable therapy and support to couples through email, real-time chat and video conferencing.
And providing counselling from a distance is not a new concept! Even Sigmund Freud used letters to communicate with his clients and online self-help groups emerged as early as 1982.
Online therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for a number of emotional and psychological struggles, especially for those in rural areas who cannot easily access treatment.
This type of therapy is not just limited to individuals – couples can greatly benefit from online therapy sessions.
Read on to find out how online couples counselling can benefit your relationship – and how I can help!
How Can Online Couples Counselling Help You?
Are you and your partner seeking ways to fix serious issues in your relationship?
Rest assured that you are not alone. Many couples seek out counselling from licensed therapists to help resolve major issues in their relationships.
Most of the time, that therapy is sought in a face-to-face setting in an unfamiliar environment with an unfamiliar therapist.
When it comes to online couples counselling, both partners can discuss their struggles and issues in a safe place, better facilitating an open and honest conversation that can lead to real and lasting solutions.
It’s important to understand that all couples hit rough patches in their relationship – it’s an inevitable part of sharing your life with someone else.
Receiving online couples therapy can teach you and your partner new coping strategies to help guide you through the conflicts in your relationship.
Here are some of the benefits of online couples counselling:
- Re-engagement in the relationship.
- Help build a new foundation of mutual respect.
- Gain perspective on each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
- More effective communication.
- Clarify the feelings in the relationship.
- Resolve relationship issues before they become deal-breakers.
- Deepen intimacy and connection.
- Promote self-awareness and growth.
- Constructive and unbiased advice from a licensed therapist.
You don’t have to settle for an unhappy relationship but you don’t have to call it quits either. Online couples counselling can help you rediscover what attracted you and your partner in the first place.
What’s Different About My Approach:
Some people may shy away from online couples therapies because it does not happen face-to-face. However, studies have proven that the benefits of online counselling are just as effective as in-person therapy sessions.
1. Attachment-Based Therapy
Attachment therapy is a new type of therapy that has shown great success when it comes to counselling couples by examining and working with each individual’s attachment style and needs.
2. Normal and Down-to-Earth Approach
Even if we can’t meet face-to-face, I can relate to you like we are friends having an online chat. I also understand that not all couples have perfect relationships and can relate to you in a genuine and realistic way.
3. World-Class Expertise and Resources
In addition to providing online couples counselling, I also produce videos, write articles and host a psychology-related podcast. I’m also the clinical director of Empire Psychological in Hamilton, Ontario. To keep my knowledge and expertise up-to-date, I regularly take part in continuing my education related to the latest in attachment therapy.
