Pillars of Positive Relationships

The relationships in our lives are very important. Whether they are relationships with family members, spouses, friends, coworkers or supervisors, they all have an impact on us. Learning how to successfully navigate these relationships can be difficult and sometimes even stressful. When we don't know how to handle conflict or understand what is going on in someone else's mind, it can be hard to know what to do when things get tough.

Setting Boundaries

Setting boundaries is essential for healthy relationships and personal growth. We can help you identify and set boundaries that work for you, so that you can feel more comfortable in your skin and more confident in your relationships.

Good Communication

Good communication is necessary in healthy relationships. But sometimes we don't have the right skills. With counselling, you can learn how to express yourself more clearly as well as listen to others. It will help you feel better about yourself and your relationships.

Respect is important in any positive relationship. As with most things, respect can be learned, practiced and built upon. Our counsellors can help you recognize bad behaviours, learn how to respect others in your life, and know how to ask for it in return.
Codependency Couples Therapy


Relationships can not function without trust. If trust has been broken or abused, it is very difficult for someone to move past that. With counselling, you can slowly take the steps towards regaining trust and building a foundation to the relationship that can last a lifetime.
Intimacy Couples Therapy


Intimacy is not limited to romantic partners, it can include platonic hugging, words of affirmation, holding hands, and any other behaviours that expresses affection. Counselling can help you find the balance between receiving intimacy and giving it while respecting boundaries.

Personal Well being

Relationships with others can never come before your own personal well being. It is important to take care of yourself and ensure that you are not suffering as a result of your relationships. With counselling, you can learn to prioritize your needs while also managing the bonds in your life.

Family Counselling

Family counselling is a safe space for families to openly share their thoughts, feelings, needs and experiences. It’s a place where you can talk about the things that have been bothering you and get advice from a professional who understands the intricate bonds within a family. Counselling can help members learn to resolve conflicts, respect boundaries, improve communication, and build positive relationships together.

Work Relationships

At work, relationships are different than in any other part of life. In this setting, you are working to build a relationship with your coworkers that is also built on professionalism and respect. You want to be able to be friendly with your coworkers at work, but you also want to make sure that the relationship is professional. There's a balance that you need to maintain.

Resolving Conflict

Conflict at work is inevitable. Whether you're having a disagreement with a colleague, or you're trying to handle a conflict with your supervisor, it's important to know how to handle these situations in an effective way that leads to resolution. Counselling helps you resolve conflicts so that you can move on without any lingering resentment or tension between you and your coworker.

Setting Boundaries

It is all too common for supervisors and coworkers to tighten deadlines unexpectedly, drop new work on your desk or call in sick thereby expecting you to pick up the slack by working evenings and weekends. When this happens, it is important to set boundaries and make sure everyone understands the expectations while respecting your time and needs.

Managing Expectations

At work, it can be hard to know what's expected of you. It's easy for your manager or coworkers to overload you with tasks and then get upset when you don't complete them in the time frame they expect. This can lead to resentment and burnout. Counselling can help you learn to manage their expectations and stand up for your needs without jeopardizing your work.

Finding a Balance

When you're working with people every day, it's easy for your relationships to become blurred. You might find yourself confiding in someone more than you should, or sharing personal details that really should be kept private. If you find yourself having trouble with this balance, counselling can help you figure out how to keep your professional and personal lives separate without hurting either one.


Codependency refers to a relationship dynamic where one person is controlled by the other. It is often seen in romantic relationships, but can occur in any type of relationship, including family and friends. Codependent people tend to be extremely loyal, supportive and nurturing towards others. They often feel like they are responsible for making their partner happy and fulfilling their needs.
Codependency is a learned behaviour that usually begins in childhood. Codependent people were typically raised by parents who were excessively needy, controlling or abusive. As a result, they learned how to take care of others at their own expense and lose sight of their own needs. Counselling helps people with codependency by exploring their feelings about themselves as well as their relationships with others. Through counselling sessions, clients learn how to identify what makes them feel good about themselves and how to take care of themselves in ways that don't involve getting validation from other people.

How Can Counselling Help?

Counselling is a safe space where individuals can work through their relationship issues with a professional. Counsellors will provide support and guidance as you learn how to navigate difficult situations, set boundaries, increase trust and create more intimacy in your life. They will also help you work on yourself by encouraging you to self-reflect and prioritize your own wellbeing without compromising your relationships. With time, you will develop a deeper understanding of what these relationships mean to you, how they affect your well-being, and how you want to manage them going forward.

Domestic Violence

It is understandable that when you are in an abusive relationship, it can be incredibly difficult to get the help you need. We are here to support you and guide you through the process of leaving your abusive partner, whether that means going back home, moving out, or staying put if your children are still at home. We'll give you practical advice on how to keep yourself safe while you're still living with them, as well as help you find resources for getting legal assistance if necessary.
