Get Couples Therapy at AERCs
AERCs customizes counseling for couples, incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address how thoughts and words can influence behavior, a common form of therapy for individuals as well as couples. Developed over the course of the last century and widely adopted by many practitioners in the mental health industry, CBT is backed by extensive research and countless positive outcomes.
Couples therapy includes an assessment of the relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House theory. Interventions are designed to help couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and the creation of shared meaning.
The Gottman Method for Counselling Couples
The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the couple’s relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy help the clients disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.
Addiction Counselling for Individuals and Families
AERCs counsellors can help with your addiction issues through individual counselling and by offering programs and services as they become available.
Counselors in this field help addicts and provide a necessary support system for individuals recovering from eating disorders, drug and alcohol issues, gambling addictions, and other behavioral issues.
In addition to working directly with clients, addiction counsellors help educate and can play a role in preventing relapses, and in promoting the subject’s ongoing health and wellbeing.
Anger Management Classes
Anger management is a psycho-therapeutic program for identifying and dealing with anger. Participants learn how to channel this destructive emotion into a positive energy for change. It has been described as deploying anger successfully. Anger frequently results from a sense of frustration, from being denied something important.
AERCs anger management classes meet employer and court requirements across Canada and are designed to accommodate your schedule and finances. We offer an informative and practical step-by-step program for building better relationships, greater productivity, and for having an overall healthier approach to life itself.
