Helping Families and Couples

build Healthy Relationships

We are wired to connect with, and to depend on one another.

It is how we grow and exist

Relationships naturally cycle through periods of connection, disconnection and repair. It’s through this process that they grow stronger.

Sometimes we get stuck in disconnection and lose our sense of togetherness and security.

In spite of concerted efforts to reconnect, preserve closeness, and reduce conflict, the wellness of our most important relationships can begin to feel out of our control.

At the Relationship Wellness Centre we know the road map to help you get your most important connections back on track. You can be assured that help is available for you and your family to feel secure, loved and loving.

We specialize in professional therapy services for families, individuals,  Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy as well Hold Me Tight workshops.
