Couple / Family Counselling
Deciding whether you and your partner need to go couples counselling or not? It can be hard to take the step to seek support in your relationship. You may feel that you are admitting your relationship is not perfect or you don’t simply find it useful.
Couple and Family Therapy addresses the behaviours of all family members and the way these behaviours affect not only individual family members, but also relationships between family members and the family unit as a whole. Regardless of whether a problem appears to be within an individual or within a family, getting other family members involved in the therapeutic process will result in more effective solutions.
Here are some of the topics that you would like to resolve in couple/family counselling:
- Trust has been broken
- Regain trust
- Feel alone in the relationship
- No communication at all or too many arguments
- Feel stuck in old patterns
- Lack of emotional intimacy
- Always being blamed
- Different in parenting styles
- Disconnect and feel distance with your partner/family members
- Hiding a big secret from a loved one

For three months immediately following your motor vehicle accident you automatically qualify for ICBC's twelve (12) week pre-approved counselling sessions with a Registered Clinical Counsellor.
The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident can be very traumatic, whether you’re the driver, or a passenger.
Horizon can assist with addressing your concerns from anxiety, PTSD, pain management, and other areas. If you are currently involved in any legal proceeding involving ICBC and are using a lawyer, we will work with you and your lawyer to ensure that you receive the service you need and will provide reports to your lawyer as needed.
Extended Health Benefits
Extended Health Plan will reimburse you and your eligible dependents for some or all of the cost of many health-care services that are not covered by BC’s Medical Services Plan. Many Extended Health Care providers (EHCs) cover the cost of counselling. Check with your insurance provider what your yearly claimable limit is and if there is a cap on each individual session.
