Couples Therapy

Build a stronger, healthier relationship, with more open communication

Are you trying to tell your partner what is bothering you, but every attempt turns into an argument?

Or perhaps you are not saying anything because you feel guilty, you are afraid of rocking the boat or because you can’t find the right words.

An unexpected crisis (a betrayal, different goals, sexual problems, etc.) threatens your relationship that used to be so strong.

Routine, children (and differences in parenting styles) or stress are disturbing your relationship, making things tense or un-sexy. And boring.

You feel deeply stuck (or alone) in a relationship that makes you suffer.

If you recognize yourself in these situations, it would be a good time to see a couples therapist. Nobody deserves to be stuck in unhappiness or living in a state of constant conflict. 

Are you ready to seek help? We’re excited to help you!

Our therapists are relationships experts.

They are trained to help you improve the communication in your relationship, to replace attitudes that hurt your connection, and to teach you tools to help you get your intimacy back.

You’ll be able to rediscover the passion and love that brought you together.

Couples therapy is not just for couples in crisis. We can also help those who want to take their relationship to the next level. Imagine having a better understanding of each other’s needs and wants, being able to handle conflicts with ease and having a deeper connection with your partner.

Imagine being able to laugh and have fun together again like when you first started dating. It is possible to reignite the spark in your relationship, and couples therapy can be the key to making that happen. And let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to be a better lover and partner? Don’t wait until it’s too late, take the proactive step and invest in your relationship today.

Your future self will thank you for it.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

First Session

You will talk about your difficulties and set goals as a couple. The therapist will help each of you express yourselves, at your own paces. The first session will be more about the therapist understanding your stories and your present situation.

Duration and Frequency

You can come, always together, to see your therapist once a week or once every two weeks at the start of the process. We recommend a minimum of 8 sessions to see positive results in your relationship. You will come out of each meeting with a new perspective, new tools or honest feedback so you can find solutions to your problems.

Afterwards

Subsequently, you will have a person who knows your relationship and on whom you can count on if necessary. You will have the tools and skills to navigate new conflicts and strengthen your relationship for the long term.

Our fees vary from $120 to $160 CAD depending on the professional. You can see the exact prices on each professional’s page, and explore our directory here.

The counseling offered at Divan bleu differs from psychotherapy by focusing on the personal development of the client and their relational skills rather than on diagnosis, interpretation and treatment of a pathology. We do not offer psychotherapy

We mainly work with the Non-Directive Creative Approach (ANDC)

This therapeutic approach is based on the belief that each person possesses inner resources that can be mobilized to overcome the difficulties they encounter.

In this approach, we consider that not having strong and gratifying connections with others, in the past or the present, are the greatest source of suffering in human beings. For us, these sufferings can be transformed into better well-being through prolonged experiences of healthy and authentic relationships. The therapeutic relationship using the ANDC is a concrete example of this type of healthy relationship. In this context, the therapist acts as a benevolent companion, promoting the growth and personal development of the client.

Our goal is to help our clients better understand themselves, free themselves from their blockages, and develop skills to cope with life’s difficulties. We work with them to identify their resources, strengths, and talents and to mobilize them so that they can achieve their goals.

Our approach aims to help people feel better in their own skin, develop their self-confidence, and live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

    Couples therapy with Yannick Calendreau was amazing. He illuminated a lot of things we weren't aware of and gave us great communication tools. I'm happy we did several sessions and it made a really positive change in our relationship! Thank you Yannick :)
