Couple & Family Counselling/Psychotherapy

What is the goal of the program?

The goal of couple and family counselling is to understand and resolve conflicts and improve relationship quality. Couple and family counselling gives each individual of the unit the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and resolve conflict in a healthier way.

Who is this program for?

This program is for any couple or family who are recognizing that the quality of their lives and relationship has been impacted by Addiction, Mental Health, and/or Chronic Pain. This program is suitable for those who are looking for some professional, objective support where they can process issues, as well as learn and practice tools and healthy communication.

How is the program delivered

At HUM, you have the option for each individual to do a comprehensive assessment to determine needs, diagnosis/es and where they are at, or start with couple and family counselling with one of our providers. 

At HUM, couple and family counselling draws from a variety of models and incorporates aspects of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy.

Couple and family counselling is often short term. You may need only a few sessions to help you weather a crisis. Or you may need counselling services for several months, particularly if your relationship has greatly deteriorated. As with individual counselling, the schedule of your appointments will be determined based on needs.

When can someone start the program, how does one start, and are there any prerequisites?

Couple and family counselling can begin anytime you are ready. There is no wait list at HUM and no referral is necessary. All it takes to get started is to call our office at 403-536-2480 or e-mail [email protected]
