Couples therapy work explores and seeks to understand the way a couple’s relationship works – and how well – on many different levels. It combines my highly-effective methods of transformation with tools and exercises derived from over 40 years of research from US relationship experts, The Gottman Institute.
The Institute claims that 69% of problems within a relationship are perpetual, but by using both methods together that figure lowers substantially.
Couples work is not just about improving existing relationships, it can also help clients who seek to part. Ensuring that strong emotions can be released safely and productively in individual sessions leaves both parties’ minds clear to communicate and plan effectively for their mutual benefit in the couples’ sessions.
Couples work is never about blame, fault, or persuading. It’s about communication and understanding, compassion and admiration, and then planning for and building a positive culture that will last for years to come.
