Couples Therapy

for adults

Re-discover and re-connect with each other again.

Modern couples face challenges and stressors that didn’t exist even ten years ago.

Couples therapy at The Giving Tree Centre provides the tools and safety to strengthen your relationship, no matter what you’re experiencing.

Marriage Counselling and Couples Therapy in Toronto.

Couples Therapy, often called Marriage or Relationship Counselling, is when  couples seek professional assistance to overcome either specific issues or general concerns around their marriage or relationship. Common issues that are addressed in Couples Therapy include communication problems, intimacy issues, conflict, financial stress and life-changing events such as extra-marital affairs, separation and divorce.


Couples Therapy is an opportunity for couples to improve their relationship by understanding where both parties are coming from, creating healthy boundaries, practicing more effective forms of communication and working through specific concerns in a safe and supportive environment with the guidance of an experienced Therapist in Toronto.


Survey data shows that Couples Therapy has a proven track record of improving relationships of married and unmarried couples. Research suggests that as much as 90% of couples report satisfaction with Couples Therapy. Long-term follow-up studies indicate that the benefits of Couples Therapy can last over time for many couples, although maintenance of gains may require ongoing effort and practice.

When to seek Couples Therapy in Toronto?

The length of Couples Therapy varies depending on the goals of the therapy and the severity of the issues. It can range from a few sessions to several months or even longer. Therapy is a gradual process, which means it can be tempting for couples to cease sessions midway. Dropout rates from couples therapy vary but can be significant.
