Worn out from having the same fights over and over with your partner?Feeling easily triggered by your partner because of resentment that has built up? Is the romance missing? Are you having difficulty communicating and feel that your partner doesn’t really hear or understand you? Feel more like roommates than partners?
communication is the base of every relationship and as it turns out, effective communication is not as easy as it seems. Poor communication, misunderstandings, or lack of effective communication techniques can lead to frustration and distance between partners. Feeling like you're stuck in a loop and are hardly hearing one another.
Trust is the foundation of a healthy relationship. Topics like dishonesty, infidelity, or past betrayals, that need time and effort to rebuild trust and security
Partners may have different expectations about various aspects of the relationship, such as intimacy, finances, roles, or long-term goals, causing friction if not addressed.
A structured, step-by-step approach to relationship health, healing, and happiness based on empirically tried, tested, and proven tools and technique
Welcome to Fearlessly Anchored Marriages!
(This program is for all couples, regardless of your marriage status!)
In our full couples enrichment program you will access to our online curriculum, available to you any time or any place, so you can work at your own pace.
This works in conjunction with your couples sessions and 1:1 work with your therapist.
You will also have a group learning space every week, where couples can learn new strategies, ask questions, get new insights, and discuss what we are learning (this is not a space for unpacking all our deep dark hurts and pains - that's what 1:1 therapy is for).
This is also yours forever. You can come back and reaudit the group - which will be different every time as what we share is based on our discussions - the tools we are giving will be different, and the learning will be different. (This is being hosted on a semester basis - Jan to March AND Sept. to Dec.).
We walk beside you all the way through your success.
There are a couple program options depending on which pieces you want to have as part of your growth and healing as a couple.
1) As part of your investment for counselling, we include the cost of online curriculum into your therapy session cost with each session for your first 12 sessions, to cover the the full curriculum. If the therapy ends before that, we would give you the option to pay out the remainder and keep the program or stop the curriculum.
2) You decide to engage in all the components: the couples therapy and individual sessions, the curriculum, the group learning space, and access to the discussion board. We will give you options that work best with your benefit programs (including your EFAP/EAP and directly billing your insurance) if we can, or spreading the payments over more than one benefit year, if need be
Sessions with the therapist will sometimes be together and sometimes separate. This is on a case-by-case basis, and always up to you.
We do provide a very cooperative program for fees and costs and will work with your insurance to cover the costs.
We want you to be successful.
We offer both in-person sessions and virtual sessions. The group learning space is fully virtual at this time. But we are considering a hybrid learning space for those who would benefit from in-person meetings.
At Michelle Neustaedter Counselling Counseling, we have been working with couples for over a decade and reading all the research associated with couple therapy. Through out this time, we have come to see first-hand what makes couples the most successful in therapy versus those who experience relapses in the therapy process.
We know that couples therapy is more complex than traditional 1:1 talk therapy and requires more time and accountability to really achieve lasting results.
this isn't traditional therapy! With the same investment you get way more bang for your buck by having access to the tools you will need at your finger tips, access to your own therapist and two extremely seasoned couples therapy professionals to ensure your success!
We know that you deserve an amazing relationship and we aim to provide that for you. We create the contract with you so that you will be committed to your own success and we will be with you the entire way.
