Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. The method is based on over 40 years of research on what makes relationships work and what causes them to break down. The Gottman Method is designed to help couples improve their communication, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and resolve conflicts in a constructive way.

The core principles of the Gottman Method include building a strong foundation of friendship and mutual respect, learning to manage conflicts in a healthy way, and creating shared meaning in the relationship. The approach is based on the idea that couples can learn the skills they need to build a strong and happy relationship, and that these skills can be learned at any stage of the relationship.

The Gottman Method involves a structured approach to therapy, with specific goals and techniques designed to help couples improve their relationship. Therapy typically begins with an assessment process, which involves gathering information about the couple's history, strengths, and areas of concern. The assessment process may include interviews, questionnaires, and observations of the couple's interactions.

Once the assessment is complete, the therapist works with the couple to develop specific goals for therapy. Therapy sessions are typically structured around these goals, with the therapist using specific techniques and interventions to help the couple work towards their goals. These interventions may include teaching specific communication skills, helping the couple to develop a deeper understanding of each other's needs and desires, and working to resolve conflicts in a constructive way.

The Gottman Method is widely used by couples therapists around the world, and has been shown to be effective in helping couples to improve their relationship. The approach is based on a solid foundation of research, and is designed to help couples build the skills they need to create a happy and healthy relationship.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
