As therapists, our priority is to provide a safe and trusting environment that will allow for the development of a strong therapeutic alliance.

our approach

At Lacasse Counselling, our therapists are trained in Self-in-Relationship Psychotherapy (SIRP), a methodology pioneered by Dr. Meier.

SIRP presents a holistic perspective, placing a strong emphasis on understanding both personal relationships and one's inner self in the context of addressing emotional and behavioural challenges.

The SIRP approach combines explanatory concepts from psychodynamic-oriented therapies (such as psychoanalysis, ego psychology, object relations theory, self psychology, and intersubjectivity theory) with interventions from action-oriented therapies (including person-centered therapy, Gestalt therapy, behavioral therapy, and cognitive-behavioural therapy).


At Lacasse Counselling, our foremost priority is to establish a secure and trusting therapeutic environment. This foundation allows us to foster a deep and enduring therapeutic alliance with our couples. Engaging in close collaboration, we meticulously craft a treatment plan, customized to meet individual and relational needs, as well as the couple's therapeutic goals.


Our therapeutic sessions are designed to guide couples from states of emotional reactivity and desolation towards achieving effective communication and cultivating authentic connections. For couples who seek our services, our objective is to navigate and address the underlying complexities of relationship dynamics. At Lacasse Counselling, we recognize that relationships can be challenged by entrenched patterns of conflict and miscommunication. Our interventions are designed not merely as short-term solutions but as strategies to promote enduring, positive change in interpersonal interactions.
