Polyamory and Non-Conventional Relationship Therapy

Find your balance in a romantic and sexual relationship model that suits you!

Do you have doubts about your identity, your orientation or your relational preferences, and you would like to clarify your desires, your values or your objectives?

Do you lack the confidence to express your desires to open the relationship, for fear of causing pain or losing your partner?

Are you afraid of losing the attention, affection or intimacy of your main partner if you open your relationship to other people?

Do you feel jealousy, insecurity, fear of abandonment or comparison, and you don't know how to overcome them?

Do you want to explore other forms of relationships, such as openness as a couple, ethical non-monogamy, hierarchical, non-hierarchical polyamory, solo-poly, etc.?

Therapy for Open Relationships

To help you work off the beaten path

You may feel different, misunderstood, even abnormal in your most intimate desires. It is not easy to see that your relationship or your sexuality is evolving and that you are no longer able to find your place.

Or again, it is possible that you are very comfortable with your model or with your orientation but you want to be sure to find an empathetic and familiar therapist with relationships that go beyond the normative hetero-monogamous framework.

Our therapists can meet with you, individually or with a partner, to help you find emotional and sexual fulfillment that suits you!

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.

    Having therapy with Valerie is always the best part of my week. She is kind, supportive, knowledgeable. I am so lucky to have her as a therapist. She helped me change my life so much in the past 2 years. She is amazing.

  • J

    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 :)

  • Richard

    I never write reviews, but I can’t hold back. Bianca helped me unlock the key to live the life I choose and not the one that was mapped out for me at birth. All I can say is that Bianca will not simply address the symptom but guide you lovingly and patiently to the root cause of the problem. She works miracles! I thought I would need months of therapy, it turns out just two sessions were necessary. It was the most intense soul searching 3 weeks of my life, but so worth it. Bianca helped me lift a dark cloud that was hanging over my head for decades. I can never thank her enough for her kindness, her wisdom, her total and utter lack of judgement, her empathy and her well placed smile when she saw me struggle a bit or not be honest with myself. Words can not express how grateful I am for her help.

  • Marie

    I've received a treatment from Alisa Heart, and i can highly recommend her approach that was different from the traditional therapy. I felt held in a very safe way, and supported all along the process. A lot of emotional release came out of the session and i felt relieved and light afterwards. This is a deep work and Alisa is a great and compassionate energy worker. Would go again.

  • Jose

    I really loved the time that I spent with Alejandra, I feel listened and supported by her. I feel very confident with her

  • Kayla

    Bianca is wonderful! Every time I speak with her I feel heard and I always leave her office with a better understanding of what was troubling me and why. Her perspective is invaluable to me.❤️

  • Shimaritsu

    She is amazing, she was able to help me figure out exactly how i felt. Gave me tools to better understand myself and be able to express it. This help was really what me and my girlfriend needed to make our relationship stronger. Bianca works wonders and I recommend her to any couple that needs help.

  • Max

    We loved working with Valérie at divan bleu. She was always terrific at offering insights and not afraid of challenging us when necessary. We were truly able to grow as a couple with the space she held for us in therapy. Would fully recommend the services offered by the couples therapists here! Extra thanks to the management team insisting at keeping the rates as affordable as possible in this ridiculous 2023 Canadian economy.
