Gottman Method for Couples Counseling

When we work with couples using the Gottman Method for couples counseling we take a proactive approach- by building on the strengths of the relationship, we help couples to:

  • Get to know one another on a deeper more intimate level
  • Increase respect and develop an emphatic connection
  • Develop effective methods for conflict management

As a result of this program couples can expect the following benefits:

  • Increased communication
  • Trust in one another
  • Rekindled romance and attraction to one another

A key difference of the Gottman method is that we use the underlying strengths of the couple’s relationship to build on a path forward.  Many couples fear couples counseling because they assume it will be dredging up the past and reliving the pain.  Couples often get stuck in these painful and dramatic cycles of hurtful communion and conflict patterns.  We all experience these from time to time.  Our approach to to rebuild confidence and learn new techniques for communion and build a positive path to the future – rather than dredging up old issues and conflicts.  Call us today to get started.

The facts about couples in conflict:

Overcome your conflicted relationship:

  • Spend time talking and listening to your partner not yelling at them
  • Stop worrying about who is right and who is wrong and understand how you can balance one another
  • Enjoy a romantic walk in the park with your partner and find other simple pleasures rather than externalizing your need for love with possessions or substances
  • Rediscover the love that you first found for your partner when things were new and live was hopeful
