Why Couples Counselling Can Transform Your Relationship?

  • Break Destructive Patterns: Learn to replace criticism, defensiveness, and withdrawal with empathy, validation, and healthy communication techniques.
  • Heal Past Hurts with EMDR: Understand how past experiences, even seemingly minor ones, can create barriers to intimacy. EMDR therapy can help process those traumas for greater ease and understanding within the relationship.
  • Improve Conflict Resolution: Turn arguments into opportunities for growth. Discover how to address differences respectfully, finding solutions that work for both of you.
  • Deepen Connection: Rebuild trust, rekindle passion, and learn to express your needs and emotions in ways your partner can truly hear, fostering a deeper bond.
  • Support During Transitions: Navigate life changes (parenthood, career shifts, loss, etc.) as a team, fostering resilience rather than conflict.

Our Approach: Experiential, Effective, Personalized

At Wellspring, we understand that every couple is unique. Our therapists tailor their approach to your needs, offering:

  • Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT): Understand the emotional needs that drive patterns in your relationship, promoting deeper connection and security.
  • Constructive Communication Techniques: Learn specific skills for expressing concerns, listening actively, resolving conflict respectfully, and finding win-win solutions.
  • Mindfulness & Self-Awareness: Reduce reactivity and create space for more thoughtful responses during conflict, allowing genuine understanding to emerge.
  • Trauma-Informed Care: If past hurts are hindering your relationship, our therapists are trained in EMDR therapy to help you heal those wounds and move forward with greater ease.

A Special Message from the Director

Clients Say


Mr. Gordon is someone that captures the spirit and the heart of active engagement. He is empathic, genuine and incorporates action and creative problem solving into his practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Gordon as an effective career and personal counsellor.

Dr. Norman Amundson

I had no experience with therapy and was unsure of the whole process. Alistair made everything very accessible and unintimidating. It was clear that he puts quite a lot of effort and preparation into every session. I'm so glad that I decided to do this, and could not have asked for a better person to help me with this. I would highly recommend Alistair to anyone who has ever thought that they might benefit from talking to a professional.

Edward Hicks

I am a young professional which for a long time now, has struggled with anxiety, insecurity, and difficulty in finding effective life coping mechanisms. Alistair was referred to me by a friend and upon the first meeting, I found Alistair to be empathetic, compassionate and intuitive. I have now been seeing Alistair regularly for 6 months and through that time my anxiety has significantly decreased, I have found effective methods of dealing with stress, found support dealing with identity issues, as well as finding inner strength to get through a tough break up. Alistair again and again, went the extra mile -thank you Alistair for your candor, openness and a safe space to get support. Thank you for playing such a large role in keeping me healthy and positive.

Kahir Lalji

I have been working with Alistair Gordon as my counsellor at Wellspring for almost 6 months now and cannot begin to tell you how far I have come with his help. I have tried working with other counsellors and therapists in the past but never really found one that clicked for me. I always felt judged, unsupported, and rushed at those appointments until I booked my first appointment with Wellspring and with Allistair. To anyone on the fence about booking an appointment or engaging in therapy: if you are willing to do the work, you couldn't ask for a better partner in your healing journey.

Elyse Renouf

When I decided to find a counsellor, I tried to find someone that I could relate to, someone that is like-minded and down-to-earth and with Alistair I really found the right person. He uses an integrative approach, showed me techniques to relax and get aware of my emotions, and helped me see things in a new perspective. Of course this is an ongoing process but I enjoy meeting and working with Alistair every time. The downtown office is a very neutral place - not too intimate, not too clinical - which is helpful to overcome apprehension, especially the first couple of times. What I find remarkable is that Alistair almost always knows what I'm trying to say, even if I can't put it into words. Working with Alistair helped me a lot and it was the right decision to put my trust in him.

Max A

Alistair really cares about you the person, and I could really feel him trying to tackle my challenges. He was also very available for off-session contact via text and email. I think he did a great job with confronting me where I needed it. Alistair always could remember the important peoples' names in my personal life, which really helped with talking about my problems. I really felt like I was talking to a friend.

Michael S.

Alistair is an awesome counsellor. He has been so helpful in working with me through some tough times in my life. He's always been available to chat with me in-between sessions. I'd recommend Alistair to anyone - he's really the ideal counsellor in my view.


I enjoy how sessions are collaborative where I can take the lead for the direction of what we talk about, and at the same time I know that Alistair will offer helpful guidance and insight along the way. I also like how we focus on the future instead of just the past. I find this to be empowering and helpful to move forward in life.
