Mary Ovenstone trained in counselling in Canada 28 years ago and has been counselling individuals and couples, alongside her coaching, ever since.
She has assisted hundreds of couples develop greater understanding of themselves and of each other, prepare for long-term relationships, resolve stuck areas of conflict, recover from affairs, and navigate relationships through difficult life-stage transitions.
She teaches couples practical communications and conflict-resolutions skills, how to handle money fairly, to create a balanced framework for lifestyle management.
After 7 years of research leading towards her Master’s thesis, she is an expert in the distinctions between male and female neurobiology: how we think and make decisions, process emotions and relate differently, and she shares that with her clients when applicable.
Mary Ovenstone coaches and counsels:
- Couples–heterosexual or same-sex
- Marriage, co-habitation, or long-term relationship preparation
- Divorce coaching (sometimes referred to by lawyers)
- Workplace relationships
