Couples Counselling: Building friendship, improving conflict management and creating shared meaning

More about the Gottman Method of Therapy:

When therapists use the Gottman method it means that they are helping couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas "friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning. Couples learn to replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and to repair past hurts."

"Interventions designed to increase closeness and intimacy are used to improve friendship, deepen emotional connection, and create changes which enhances the couples shared goals."

Couples often worry about falling back into old patterns of behaviour after they've completed couples counselling. However, the Gottman Method addresses relapse prevention, which helps couples feel confident as they go on to sustain the tools/skills they've learned in therapy.
