• Vaughan Relationship Centre: Counselling to Empower.

Feedback From Our Clients

Many people ask why we don’t have testimonials on our website.  The choice reflects our strict adherence to ethical principles set forth by the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, as well as the Ontario College of Psychotherapists. These professional bodies explicitly prohibit clients from offering testimonials due to the risk of disclosing their identities.

The therapists at the Vaughan Relationship Centre have specialized training in relationship therapy. Also, they excel in addressing concerns such as anxiety, depression, family dynamics, stress alleviation, abuse, and overcoming the lingering effects of past family problems.

Many of our clients seek our assistance in improving their relationships, especially in overcoming communication barriers and past grievances.  We have achieved remarkable success assisting our clients in creating stronger bonds while acquiring valuable skills like attentive listening and mutual understanding.

While most clients come to us to improve their relationships, not all come in with the same hope or agenda.  Occasionally, clients approach us for support to end their relationships, which can be a challenging and emotional process for both parties.

Our primary objective is to assist our clients in achieving their relationship goals without imposing our personal beliefs on how they should navigate their lives. We aim to empower our clients to reach their goals for therapy.

Here is unsolicited feedback shared by our clients during their sessions.  To safeguard the identities of our clients and maintain confidentiality, we cannot publish the names of the clients who provided the feedback.
