Merkl Marriage Counselling

A refuge for highly conflicted couples and individuals.

 
 

My Mission: 
IMG_0056-2.jpg

Hi there! I'm Simone.

My mission is to inspire a deeper appreciation, connection and intimacy in your relationship. I am passionate about discussing the most effective researched-based therapies available. It is important to understand many counsellors say they provide couples counselling, only a small percentage of them have the specific training needed to help heal relationship issues.  

I recommend the Gottman Method Therapy with John & Julie Gottman, Emotionally Focused Therapy with Sue Johnson, and Relational Life Therapy with Terry Real. Since nearly half of all marriages fail within the first seven years, pre-marriage counselling should be considered mandatory for today's couples (Gottman, J.M. 1994). I orchestrate my approach based on your own needs as a couple or individual, but you choose your path.

I offer individual, couple and group counselling. I focus on intimacy concerns, conflict resolution, anger management, and differences in worldviews. I can help guide your journey into navigating peaceful resolutions in your relationships.


I offer easy, secure online video, phone, or in-person sessions with clients.

Merkl Marriage Counselling works with individuals who want to improve themselves or their relationships. Are you experiencing stress or confusion because of your relationships? Or, maybe you are suffering from anger, shame, depression, anxiety, or a life transition. 

 

It is fulfilling when a client finds clarity in their circumstances and realizes their potential. True empowerment comes when one understands the need to make our own choices and have our boundaries.

 

Merkl Marriage Counselling creates a safe, comfortable, and empathetic environment. We believe in being authentic and open in our approach. We work with couples who need help in marriage, pre-marriage, intimacy, emotionally or physically unfaithful, distressed couples, same-sex couples, or couples in need of a marriage tune-up.

It is so rewarding to witness partners deepening their intimacy, connection, and communication with one another.

 

Merkl Marriage Counselling offers marriage and pre-marriage group sessions when the restrictions allow for a larger group setting.
