• Vaughan Relationship Centre: Counselling to Empower.


Because you are worth it.

To first be able to consider others and build a healthy relationship, we first must be able to respect and be happy with our own selves. The true power of emotional bonding and human interaction begins in each of our minds, which can be weighed down with stressors, frustrations, mental illnesses, and even trauma. By taking the time to work out what is holding you back from loving and respecting yourself, you’ll then be able to reflect a newfound sense of optimism and contentment towards building a healthy relationship with another person.

Although Vaughan Relationship Centre focuses on couples and family counselling, we understand that as individuals our clients all may face their own struggles. Whether you are going through emotional turmoil after the end of a relationship, feel unable to overcome resentment towards someone who has hurt and disappointed you in your life, experience a disconnect to yourself and your surroundings or just long to create better experiences in your life – the key begins with you. The relationship you have with yourself, your acceptance or resistance of your own true colours, creates the foundation for your happiness in every aspect of your life.

Accepting yourself and developing a sense of contentment enables for unprecedented growth from within. It will encourage newfound optimism and quell negative thinking, as well as bolster self-confidence. Intrapersonal consideration fosters the ability to openly communicate with newfound respect for others through a respect for oneself. Simply put, if you love yourself, it will be relatively easy to love somebody else as well, which will result in an entirely beneficial, healthy, and intimate relationship built on compassion.

A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy. At Vaughan Relationship Centre we can be helpful with situations around:

  • managing anxiety,
  • depression,
  • anger management,
  • stress,
  • work related issues,
  • grief,
  • changes in life circumstances,
  • health changes,
  • divorce/separation.

We can help you make sense of it all and efficiently work out a way to negate detractors of your mental well-being.

We also work with adolescents who want to discuss issues with:

  • school,
  • home life,
  • self-esteem,
  • body image,
  • anxiety,
  • depression,
  • and transitions in life.

This time of life requires utmost attentive care and consideration, as hormonal changes can result in the festering of various adverse intrapersonal impacts including negative, rebellious, or outright harmful thoughts that could not only damage the self, but also those around the individual in question. Regardless of your age or needs, working with one of our specialists opens up a realm of new possibilities through the act of learning to be happy with your own self.

What to expect

The best form of individual counselling is that which addresses and respects your emotions, needs, desires, and personality. We make it a point to take the time to respect each of these areas when working with individuals, as it enables for all the issues plaguing you to be effectively laid out and assessed. Through careful consideration and beneficial guidance practices, we can encourage a newfound way of thinking and improve your situation through continually enhanced collaboration with one of our friendly and knowledgeable specialists. We respect that you know your own mind and life better than anyone else, and consider this a benefit and an opportunity to help you move forwards through encouraging the consideration of your emotions and life in general from your own perspective.

By taking the time to sit down and talk things through with us, you’ll develop newfound and wholly beneficial emotional responses in day-to-day situations, a new sense of self-kindness and empowerment, elevated self-respect and self-identity, and learn professional tools that will enable for you to reflect a new positive outlook on yourself outwards towards others, which can create healthy and happy relationships.
