Welcome to my practice, Can't We Just Get Along Counselling?

Hello, my name is Melody Evans; I am a clinical psychologist who believes humans are resilient and have all the resources they need to thrive. However, at times we all struggle. Maybe it is to get along with somebody in our lives, partners, family members, co-workers, or even ourselves as we deal with the overwhelming challenges life can bring. These struggles can have an adverse effect on our happiness, but therapy can help. I use evidence-based Gottman couples therapy and EMDR trauma therapy to help people improve their lives. Whether you are facing anxiety, depression, loss, divorce, conflict, anger, communication issues, and so much more, myself or one of my talented team members are here to help. Because you deserve to be understood, have peace, and find happiness.

I look forward to meeting you

How can a marriage counselor help?

It can be difficult to open up to your partner or spouse about tough feelings and relationship problems. If you struggle with feelings of loneliness, neglect, or unfulfillment in your relationship, those can be hard to share with your partner.

A marriage counsellor can help create a safe space where a couple can open up and communicate effectively. Trusting your spouse or partner with even painful feelings is often the first step in getting your relationship back on track. The marriage counsellor will act as an impartial mediator and help you break free of unhealthy patterns and behaviour.

Ignoring relationship problems is often the worst strategy. If you don’t address the problems in your relationships, they can grow and put more strain on your relationship. Just like you would see a doctor for a health issue, a marriage counsellor can help you treat and heal issues in a relationship before it breaks down.

Couples therapy can help you work through relationship issues big and small. Our marriage counsellors can offer tools for better communication and solve relationship problems. Not only can a marriage counsellor help you start your journey towards a happy and healthy relationship, but they can also help individuals work on improving their self-esteem and well-being.

The Gottman method

Using the Gottman Method, we can provide practical solutions to everyday problems. The Gottman Method is a type of therapy that is specifically directed to couples. John and Julie Schwartz Gottman developed this therapeutic method after doing scientific studies of relationships for over 40 years. The method provides simple but powerful and practical methods for strengthening relationships through day-to-day interactions. Although every couple is different, though therapy with this method, some of the benefits include:

  • Focus on building a shared life together.
  • Learn to create a stronger bond of friendship, respect and support.
  • Deepen feelings of love and connectedness.
  • Building trust and cooperation.
  • Manage conflicts and disagreements in a way that doesn’t destroy your relationship.

Assessment.

Laying the Foundation for Lasting Change.

Later on, counselling sessions will focus on how to future-proof positive change in the relationship. Couples will explore how positive changes have benefited their time spent together and feelings of intimacy. Together, we will look at any problems that have occurred, and make a plan to prevent reverting back to old, destructive habits.
