Couples Counsellor Rovena Magidin, RTC, specializing in Relationhips, Sexuality and Intimacy

Rovena Magidin, Registered Therapeutic Counsellor 

You are looking for help with your relationship, sex life and/or intimacy. There’s been a lot of pain and you feel alone with it. You want a loving relationship, and awesome sex life, you want to experience depth of intimacy. You want to heal. You want to feel loved. 

Specializing in Relationships, Intimacy and Sexuality 

You are in the right place.

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.

I am even more passionate about my work now than I was when I first started. I have over a decade of specialized training in the field of relationships and sexuality. I was lucky to train with some of the best teachers around the world in both Eastern and Western traditions. My training combines cutting edge Western psychology, neuroscience, and the most current sex education with the ancient Eastern traditions of mindfulness, awareness, presence, and energy, including Neo-Tantric sexuality.

For me, it's about finding the right approach for you, one that brings into alignment you mind, body, heart and soul. 

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. It makes me sad, and, at the same time, it makes me really passionate when working with couples on the brink of divorce. 

Rovena Magidin, RTC, Individual and Couples Counsellor, kayaking

I’ve been a single mom (miserable at first, and happy and free after I learned what it meant to be happy on my own). 

I thought I’d never marry again, and yet, I am very happily married now; in a blended family with 3 kids (teenagers), a dog and a cat.


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 I specialize in:

Relationships, Intimacy and Sex.

  • Pre-Marital Counselling and Coaching

  • Marital, Couples or Relational Therapy

  • Communication (from the heart)

  • Conflict Resolution (let's help you stop fighting about the same thing, over and over again) 

  • Sex Therapy and Somatic Sex Education: desire discrepancy, low desire, elusive or nonexistent orgasms, sexual pain, trauma, emotional blocks, missing connection and other sex and intimacy issues

  • Individual therapy focusing on relationships, past or current, sexual and non-sexual intimacy, healing sexual traumas and attachment wounds

  • I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. 

What is counselling with me like?

What people say is that it feels very safe, and they feel at ease. They are surprised that it’s not at all what they thought it would be - that counselling can be fun. They learn a lot - about relationships, about themselves, about their partner. They feel hope, they feel inspired and they have tools to make a difference, so they know what to practice at home.

Next Steps:

I offer free 30 minutes consultations. There’s no rush, as 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 for you, I’ll do my best to get you to the right person or resources you need.
