Vaughan Relationship Centre
Counselling to empower.
Do you feel like you can’t talk openly to your partner? Do you argue over and over in hurtful and unconstructive ways? Can you not see a way out of your troubled, estranged situation? Has there been some type of betrayal or something you cannot seem to move past? Let us help you.
Perhaps you’re struggling with the relationship you have with yourself, overcoming past resentment, experiencing a disconnect to your surroundings or just long to create better experiences in your life? Regardless, sometimes the journey towards a bright future begins with you.
One of the most valuable things we can do to heal one another, is to listen to each other’s stories. – Rebecca Falls
At Vaughan Relationship Centre, our counselling space is one of acceptance, respect, and safety.
Our relationship with our partner is one of the most important relationships we will have. It takes time to nurture and grow it. We’ve moved past the age of a “one-size-fits-all” approach to emotional therapy and relationship repair, entering a new world where the importance of individual therapy is more widely recognized. At Vaughan Relationship Centre, we seek to heal your relationships through the act of listening and providing guidance through friendly and thoughtful consultation with clients in a safe and comfortable space.
Through the power of conversation, we seek to strengthen emotional bonds. Our counselling professionals take a gentle approach that enables each of our clients to trust that we will help without judgment. We equally care about all aspects and sides of the situation that brought them to us. Listening to your personal stories is both an honour and a privilege to us that we strongly value in our daily counselling practice. Counselling should not be taboo, but seen as a chance to talk things out and unify efforts to repair strained relationships.
Whether on your own or with a loved one, find comfort through our attentive and insightful guidance.
If you’re feeling lost or discouraged, don’t think that you must bring someone along to secure a session with us. We encourage anyone in need of a sounding board and professional advice to come in for a chat, be it for individual or relationship counselling. We’ll always welcome you with open arms and profound respect in regards to your integrity and self-worth.
The feeling of being heard and understood is often the very first significant step towards positive change, wherever you may feel stuck. Because we see each of our clients as unique, we don’t stereotype or generalize about your story. We take the time to truly listen to what brought you to our office and to understand what is most important to you. As modern society begins to accept that relationship and/or individual therapy is nothing to be afraid of, more and more clients find courage to reach out and improve life circumstances. There’s no reason not to make a positive change for yourself and re-establish healthy patterns.
Our clients are normal everyday individuals who want to learn how to better communicate and connect with their partner. While we mostly work with couples, we also work with individuals struggling with relationships with their partner, parent, child, sibling or other relative, in-laws, co-workers or colleagues.
Moving Past Misconceptions and Making a True Difference
Many are uncomfortable with the prospects of relationship or individual guidance and consulting with a therapist. However, the most important thing to remember is that there is no shame in seeking therapy, whether emotionally focused or otherwise. To embark on such a thought-provoking and perception-shifting journey is to express unquestionable courage and a willingness to improve your life and relationship. Everyone struggles with a relationship or individual struggle at one point or another, and many of them come to us to heal emotional wounds to strengthen the bonds with those they love and truly appreciate — even their own selves.
When we are ill, we see a doctor. We get our cars fixed by a mechanic or contact Geek Squad for our computers. For our relationships, seeking out support from a therapist is far healthier to seek out and participate in relationship therapy than to continue in the same patterns as before. Not just to protect the stability of your relationship but to also protect against unforeseen friction or frustrations. Our professional and deeply knowledgeable therapists will work closely with you to determine the precise nature of your situation, and will consult with you how to best to improve your life circumstance in a healthy, constructive way.
Many are now embracing the professional, attentive, and approachable therapy services we provide without sacrificing client integrity and self-respect. This way, you’ll benefit from the continued growth, stimulation, and deeper perception associated with comprehensive and professional guidance without feeling as if you’ve “given up”, but quite the reverse. Our goal is to normalize therapy and remove the misconception of it being a “taboo” subject, resulting in the ability to reach out and heal many more fragmented relationships through professional, friendly, and thoughtful direction.
