Your Relationships Heart

Turn Heartache to Harmony in your Love and Family Life

Most couples wait far too long before seeking professional help. Don’t let it be you!

Many of us weren’t taught the skills for making great relationship. Family history, common sense, friend’s opinions – not always the best advice.

The good news is couples who invest in great relationship skills build a great relationship and family life.

You and your partner can:

  • Deepen your connection so that you can love and laugh together again
  • Stop the repetitive arguments that lead to tense silences
  • Heal after an affair or devastating crisis
  • Break through worsening isolation and loneliness
  • Reignite romance and rekindle intimacy

Wondering if the relationship counselling is right for you?

The bad news is … Over 50% of committed relationships fail. The statistics are even worse for 2nd and 3rd relationship failure.

As an experienced couples’ therapist, I work with couples to repair and renew relationships. I teach couples how to repair their friendship and heal breaking hearts.

I will ensure you feel equally heard, respected and supported to express your concerns, frustrations and fears. To voice your hopes, dreams and desires. I respect all partnerships – straight, gay, or as you chose to define it.

I have developed my Relationship Quiz based on research findings to help you to start thinking about your relationship strengths and challenges and consider if counselling may be right for you. This short survey is not diagnostic tool.

The Gottman Method Couples Therapy 

There’s science and art to creating strong, satisfying and lasting relationships. Both are available right here!

The Gottman Method is an approach based on 40 years of research with thousands of couples, designed to help teach specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy and to help you effectively manage conflicts.

John Gottman is the leading researcher into what ensures love, trust and happiness in committed relationships and family life.

Elizabeth Williamson has trained extensively with John and Julie Gottman. She provides support to couples, individuals, children and/or families on many issues in addition to couples therapy. This including anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, abuse, blended family issues and more.

Parenting Coaching – from tots to teens.

Parents today need more support and encouragement! Parents need to update their skills as their children grow and mature. It’s really worthwhile to invest in learning new success skills, rather than feeling frustrated and losing your cool.

A new child in the family changes everything and everyone. Your pre-teen is testing limits. Your teenager will be adept at pushing your buttons and highlighting your own blind spots.

Perhaps you find yourself repeating your parent’s tone, words or behaviours – the very behaviours you promised yourself would never repeat.

Mindful parents are aware of their strengths and their challenges.

Emotion coaching is a research-based process developed by Dr. John Gottman, designed to teach kids emotional skills and help parents regain the confidence to reduce chaos in family life. Emotion coaching can improve communication in many different types of relationships and can be tailored to fit any age group.

You can learn to use emotional moments to build closer relationships with them. As well, you can set limits on inappropriate behaviour, teach kids how to regulate feelings and solve problems more productively.

Families Face Challenges at Different Stages

Often adolescence and early adulthood are real catalysts for uncomfortable, even confronting, changes in family relationships.

Family therapy enables family members to explore difficult situations and emotions safely, and break patterns that have led to misunderstanding, frustration and conflict. The goal is to learn new ways to listen and appreciate each other’s different views, create connections and restore harmony, and have fun again.

Sessions may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s needs.
