• Vaughan Relationship Centre: Counselling to Empower.

Couples Counselling & Therapy Markham

Because you can make a change on your own.

Please note that while we service the Markham area, all appointments are held out of our office in Woodbridge.

Vaughan Relationship Centre is here to offer Markham-area residents the support and guidance you need and deserve. Our office in nearby Woodbridge provides emotional therapy and relationship support to both individuals and couples with a customized approach for each unique situation. We don’t believe in a cookie-cutter strategy; our counsellors ensure that our clients trust in the fact that we aim to thoroughly understand their experiences so that we can offer the appropriate guidance without bias or judgement.

Whether you simply feel the need to talk with someone on your own for professional advice, or if you would like to bring your partner along for couples counselling, you can discuss what’s bothering you with us. Whatever you need, we will take the time to listen, understand, and help you work towards positive change.

It goes without saying that no couple that genuinely loves one another wants to end a long-running relationship. However, it’s dangerous to face the friction alone if it has been escalating to stress-limit-exceeding levels. Let’s explore some core fundamentals of such relationships:


Broken trust in a relationship does not always mean an affair.  It can be not trusting that your partner will support you, do as they promise, or stand up for you in tough situations.  This can leave you feeling alone. The question is how to mend the relationship when neither of you believes one another?  

Couples therapy is critical in this instance, as it allows for us to mediate between both of you and dig into the root of the issue, all in a safe and discussion-encouraging environment. 


If you’re struggling to talk to your other half or simply can’t work together without breaking into an argument, a simple patch-job apology is not going to be enough. You need to work with an experienced counselling professional who can help both sides, at the same time, understand the fundamentals of open communication. This can lead to increased trust in one another, giving you just the support needed to take mending fences into your own hands. 

Dealing with Uncertainty

Does something feel wrong or off about your relationship? If so, it could indicate tension over an underlying issue that one or both of you might not have considered. Exterior triggers such as financial stress, family drama serving as baggage, stress over raising children and more could be factoring into these feelings, but the important thing is that you work with a professional to paint a clearer picture of what’s going on. If family matters are causing the two of you to lash out and fight, it may indicate a dysfunctional relationship in your inner circle that is effectively poisoning your own. The same applies if you both come from different backgrounds and there is a clash of interest on certain sensitive subjects.

Just like you would seek a doctor, dentist, mechanic, or technician for health or repair services, seeking support and advice from a therapist is necessary during emotionally turbulent circumstances. Being able to talk with a professional is incredibly important to help you understand what you’re experiencing, why you’re feeling a certain way, and how you can learn from it and move forward positively. So, if you’re feeling unsure about the idea of seeking professional counselling services, don’t be. Conversation can be extremely effective for getting things off your chest and unifying your efforts to repair relationships.

Our team at Vaughan Relationship Centre is committed to making each of our clients feel comfortable and at ease while offering the professional advice they require. When you’re ready to talk with one of our counsellors, whether it regards your relationship with your partner, your family, in-laws, or even colleagues, reach out to us. We’ll schedule a consultation so that we can help you begin your journey towards a happier and healthier life.
