Is Couples/Relationship Therapy right for you and your partner?
Meet Jeff Hay
I have worn many hats in my life including husband/father of 4, motivational speaker, professional writer, parenting coach, blogger, radio personality, professional MC/DJ, and many more. Perhaps most importantly, I am also a certified counsellor with the BCACC.
My education spans many years. While “life” has been my greatest teacher with children and a blended family, I have a Bachelor of Applied Health Studies from the University of Waterloo (minor in Psychology), a Broadcasting Degree from BCIT, and most recently, a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. Along with being a certified facilitator of Personality Dimensions workshops, most recently, I also completed my Level 3 training as a Gottman Couples Therapist.
I specialize in the following areas
Although you can read more details in my Approach, my main areas of focus and interest are couples, relationships, and divorce. I provide client centered services utilizing the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT), some Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT – or ‘stinking thinking’ as some call it), and Solution Focused Therapy.
While that all sounds very academic, I am a genuine people-person who loves helping. I want to help couples and families work through difficult moments, stay connected, and lead fulfilling lives. Together, let’s figure out where you are now, and where you want to be. I hope my sense of humour and non-judgmental approach will make me a good fit for you as a very engaging and effective counsellor.
