Are you looking for couples counselling in Calgary, Alberta? If so, you have come to the right place. At Cobb and Associates we can help you build a stronger, more connected relationship.
We offer hope and tools to help our clients manage conflict more effectively, communicate authentically, heal from infidelity, rebuild trust after betrayal, deepen both emotional intimacy and physical intimacy. Our goal is to help you build the relationship you desire.
We employ the latest methods and advances in couples treatment including emotionally-focused therapy, Gottman Method therapy, developmental couples therapy and neuropsychobiological approaches.
Our philosophy is that a connected, trusting, committed couples relationship is the basis for a strong family and provides a secure base for a happy life. Our mission, therefore, is to help as many couples as possible, in Calgary and surrounding areas find renewed hope in their relationship, greater intimacy, and deeper connection to each other, and to assist our clients to prepare for, build and maintain strong relationships.
Finding a capable, easy-to-work-with, and knowledgeable couples therapist with whom you both feel comfortable can be challenging. One of the reasons it can be difficult is that many psychologists currently in private practice today are generalists, who have had little formal training in couples therapy, even though couples therapy is a different kettle of fish to individual therapy and is one of the most widely-used--and widely-offered--of the psychological services available: about 70% of all mental health professionals do work with couples.
At Cobb & Associates we strive to take the guess-work out of finding a good fit, by helping you connect with well-trained and experienced counsellors, who specialize in couples therapy, and who can guide you on the right path toward a happier and more satisfying relationship.

Our counsellors are trained using Gottman Method Couples Therapy and/or Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy methods to help you identify negative patterns of relating to each other, understand how these patterns effect your relationship, and guide you through effective and practical steps to feel closer to each other, more deeply in love, and more like an intimate team!
At least 75% of our clientele are couples at various stages of their relationship, including those seeking premarital counselling, those with a good foundation who are just seeking a tune-up, those with some significant challenges looking for relief and a better way of being together, to those who are struggling to stay afloat in a crisis of infidelity, wavering commitment or chronic conflict. There is very little we have not seen in our work with couples!
We offer a comfortable office setting where you will be greeted warmly and helped to feel at ease. We know the importance of providing a non-judgmental atmosphere where you can help each other understand what is important to you and feel heard. We believe in utilizing a direct but compassionate style of communicating feedback, and introducing new perspectives. We also offer homework in between sessions to help you apply what you are learning.
We have plenty of free parking available, are located in the southwest Calgary community of Haysboro (not far from the Heritage C-Train station), and we direct bill to many of the major insurance companies in Alberta, including (but not limited to) Blue Cross, Great West Life, Greenshield, and Chambers of Commerce. A French-speaking therapist is available. Evening appointments are also available.
