Gottman Method Couples Therapy
Based on over 40 years of research with thousands of couples, Gottman Method Couples Therapy can give you new insights and research-based skills that can dramatically improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship and help you manage conflict in a healthy, positive way.
Gottman Method Couples Therapy is the best move toward improving your relationship. Utilizing research-based interventions and exercises, it is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based therapy. Intervention strategies are based on empirical data from Dr. Gottman’s study of over 3,000 couples.
Statistics show that couples typically wait six years after trouble starts to get help for their relationship. By then, they’re often so resentful and worn down that getting back on track seems impossible. Drawn from Dr. John Gottman’s four decades of research with over 3,000 couples, the skills you will learn in our work together will help to rebuild or increases your relationship’s friendship, intimacy and respect.
We know exactly what separates the “masters” of relationships from the “disasters.” Over 40 years of Gottman’s research has enabled a way for therapists to teach everything we’ve learned about creating the kind of partnership we all hope for. Here are some of the statistics we’ve learned:
