Offers online therapy
Announcement icon I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honoured to support you during this time of uncertainty.


I help couples and individuals re-discover their relationships and build stronger connections that bring joy and fulfilment. Instead of simply talking about issues you are dealing with, we will learn practical, effective communication tools that can transform your conversations and help you break through gridlocked issues. And if you feel disconnected from your partner, we will use research-based methods of strengthening your connection so that you can feel closer again.
I have not met a person who was unhappy in life if they had great relationships: family and friends. My life belief is the secret to happiness lies in healthy relationships: with yourself and others.
I help couples and individuals affected by the following issues: 1. Marital/relationship issues (marriage/couples counselling) 2. Adjustment to being a parent (new parent/post-natal counselling) 3. Those who wish to get married (pre-marital counselling and coaching). I also offer therapy to those who discovered their biological parents only in adulthood.

Alyona Cerfontyne's Groups

Non-Parental Discoveries Support Group

This group is for those who grew up unaware of their real biological parents. You may have been adopted, donor-conceived or raised by a parent who you don't have a biological connection to. If you have not learnt the truth about your arrival into this world as a child, this discovery later in life can be one of the most profound experiences one can go through. Having a safe and understanding place to share your story and talk about what you are going though could really help to process your discovery. 4-6 participants.
