No Relationship Is Perfect

Relationships have peaks and they have valleys. Wild passion can be followed by boredom. The feeling that you’re perfect for each other is occasionally followed by the revelation of differences in core values and beliefs. Through a series of unintentional offenses, even the most loving relationships can become poisoned by manipulation, lack of accountability, and eventually anger and contempt.

Then the arguments become more frequent, and leave you both emotionally drained and unsure of how to move beyond what look like intractable differences. This is where Capital Choice couples counselling can help, providing the couples therapy specific to you and your relationship. These arguments are really a dance of wounds, which you can read about in our free e-book here. If you believe you’re relationship is experience a stand still in the bedroom read our blog about the 5 signs that your ‘private’ life needs more loving and how our Ottawa couples therapy can help.

  • I have attended, with great interest, many Relationships Matter Seminars at St Paul University. The topics are beneficial to everyone who want a better understanding of oneself and relationships. I always come out at the end of the evening with better knowledge and good feelings. Many thanks to the speakers — great presentations!

  • The seminar I attended was very interesting. The host is very good speaker, he knows what he is talking about and definitely has knowledges to share. I like that it is accessible and entertaining: my boyfriend enjoyed it too, and I believed that it’s partially because of the fact it was funny and instructive.

    Emilie Bout

  • Relationship Matters offer great speakers on a variety of related topics from online dating to being in long term intimate relationships. They are thought provoking and accessible to the lay person and for anyone with a desire to broaden their perspectives on and possibly improve the quality of their relationships. I am really happy to have discovered this series put on by Martin Rovers, an expert in the field.

Frequently Asked Questions

Couples counseling can assist you and your partner with:
  • Learning communication skills that are needed for a successful relationship.
  • Deciding on the best steps to take next for your relationship.
  • Managing and resolving conflicts better.
  • Merging families and/or co-parenting more smoothly.
  • Staying connected during a major transition or life change.
  • Much, much more!
Couples counseling can help people with all types of relationship situations including:
  • Married couples
  • Couples living together
  • Couples thinking about getting married
  • Couples that are considering separation and/or divorce
  • Couples in a same-sex relationship
  • Couples where one or both partners are thinking about or have had an affair
  • Couples that have issues with anger
  • Couples who are feeling distant and less connected than they used to be
This will vary from couple to couple, because every relationship is different. The approach of the therapist is also a factor. Usually, you can expect couples therapy to last anywhere from 12 to 30 hours.
As defined by Lillian Glass, a communication and psychology expert in California, a toxic relationship is any relationship between two people who don’t support each other. There is conflict and competition. One partner seeks to undermine the other. The relationship has been tainted by disrespect and a lack of cohesiveness.
Our clinic can accommodate this under specific conditions. You will need to see a different therapist for your individual therapy than you would for your couple’s therapy. This is because a therapist will become partial to an individual’s perspective during individual therapy and become a biased 3rd person when conducting couples counseling. Having the same therapist provide individual and couples counselling would be more likely to cause the couples counseling to have a detrimental effect on your relationship.
