Relationship Counselling in Calgary 

Passionate About Inspiring Others

My name is Rovena Magidin and I love my work. I love working with couples and individuals and helping them create relationships and intimacy that’s fulfilling and joyous and lasting. 

 

I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Love Coach and a Somatic Sexologist. 

I am passionate about people and relationships. I want to create a space grounded in trust and acceptance in where we can work together to heal from old traumas and experiences, and create a fuller and more satisfying life.

 

What I specialize in: Relationships, Intimacy and Sex.

  • Pre-Marital Counselling and Coaching

  • Marriage Counselling or Couples or Relational Therapy

  • Communication skills

  • Conflict resolution

  • Sex Therapy: Desire Discrepancy, sexual pain, trauma, emotional blocks and other sex issues

  • Individual therapy focusing on relationships, past or current, sex and intimacy

My Approach to Practice

I combine Eastern spiritual traditions with Western counselling practices to offer practical, fun, and transformational relationship coaching and healing. I was lucky to train with some of the best mentors and teachers from around the world.  My training combines cutting edge Western neuroscience, neurobiology and the most current sex education with ancient Eastern traditions of mindfulness, awareness, presence, and energy, including Neo-Tantric sexuality.

More About Rovena

 

I also practice what I share. I’ve made all of the mistakes. I have dealt with trauma, sexual pain, depression and anxiety. I’ve been married and I’ve been divorced. I quite possibly learned more from my divorce than from 14 years of marriage. 

 

I’ve been a single mom (miserable at first, and happy and free when I learned what It means to be happy on my own) 

I thought I’d never marry again, and guess what, I am very happily married now; in a blended family with 3 kids (teenagers), a dog and a cat, all of which present their own unique challenges. :) 

 

It hasn’t been easy, but it’s really worth it. 

 

Everything I learn I want to apply to my relationship, then I immediately want to share it with others. I don’t think I’ll ever stop. 

What's Working With Me Like?

People say working with me feels very safe, and they feel at ease. They are surprised that couple's counselling is not at all what they thought it would be - that it can be fun. They learn a lot about relationships, about themselves, and about their partner. They feel hope, they feel inspired and they learn practical tools to help make a difference in their relationship.  

Next Steps

I offer free 30 minutes consultations. I want to make sure I really understand what’s going on for you and also answer all of your questions. 

 

My session are 90 minutes - again, I do not want to rush, I want us to go deep and I want you to start moving in the directions of your dreams. 

Consultations are via phone or via video call online. If I am not the right person, I’ll do my best to get you to the right person.
