Gottman Method Couples Training
Setting couples up for success with the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy
As a Certified Gottman Therapist in Australia, I have seen remarkable success working with couples who were experiencing problems in their relationship.
What is the Gottman Method Couples Therapy?
Known around the world for its effectiveness, the Gottman Method was developed by Dr John and Dr Julie Schwartz Gottman after four decades of research and real-life feedback from thousands of couples.
This evidence-based method focuses on the relationship to help couples gain a deeper understanding of each other and how to improve communication and increase intimacy.
How does the Gottman Method work?
You will both be asked to complete an in-depth online questionnaire which gives me detailed insight into your relationship and provides a road map for therapy.
Session 1: Couple Session
The first session is an 80-minute couple session during which we discuss the history of your relationship to help me better understand how your relationship developed and what has changed over time. During this session I also take the time to identify your relationships strengths as well as your challenges.
Sessions 2 and 3: Individual Sessions
The next step is for both of you to attend an individual session, giving you the opportunity to tell me about your family of origin and for me to get a thorough personal history.
Session 4: Couple Session
The following session is a couple session to help you both:
Deepen your understanding of each other
Understand the Sound Relationship House and how your relationship fits into that model
Develop a roadmap to reconnect as a couple
Ideally, these first four sessions will be booked in a 2-3-week period. After the fourth session, all subsequent sessions are as a couple.
