How Will Gottman Method Couples Therapy Help Us?
Conflicts and struggles have a way of overshadowing the goodness of your partner and your relationship and are usually the trigger for seeking counseling. Actually, conflicts are part of a normal, healthy relationship and research has shown that happily married couples have just as much conflict as distressed couples. The determining factor for happiness is not the amount of conflict, but rather how the couple handles conflict. Therapy can help you connect in more open, honest and loving ways. In therapy you will learn how to:
Learn to treat each other more respectfully and collaboratively
Gain a clearer understanding of your partner’s message
Rebuild trust and loving connections
Improve and build your friendship
Understand the triggers that escalate unproductive conflict
