If you're feeling disconnected, distracted, and detached from your life, it may be time to look at why. Why can't I connect, why am I not able to just "get over" my past, or why does it all feel so meaningless? Maybe there are other questions, like “what am I doing with my life” or “who do I want to be?”. It’s okay to take time that's just for you, to look at your life and see both the big picture and explore the often overlooked details. With the right support, you can feel more present, connected, and in control of your life.

In order to feel safe and in control, you may have learned certain survival and coping strategies to keep you grounded. Perhaps you are a child of immigrants, struggling to exist between two cultures. Or maybe you were afraid to disappoint others and taught yourself to never have any needs or boundaries. These behaviours, while understandable, may no longer serve you in the ways that you need. Together, we can explore and unpack your life experiences, offer understanding and validation to the shutdown parts of you, and learn to take up space and exist in our world. Psychotherapy can promote healing, resiliency and self-empowerment

I am currently accepting new clients. I may be the right fit for you if the following reminds you of yourself. You’ve struggled with not feeling good enough for as long as you can remember. This has impacted your relationships and often leaves you feeling anxious and insecure. You tell yourself you should feel happy, but you don't. You’re confused, feeling lost and like you don't even know what you want or who you are. You’ve been trying to get better for some time. You've picked up books, followed how-to's, listened to podcasts and so on. And so far… nothing has worked.

Gottman Method Counsellors

How does the Gottman method work?

One of the core doctrines of the Gottman method is that negative emotions hurt relationships about five times more than positive emotions help them. Thus, couples require five times more positive interactions than negative interactions with each other. The therapist will guide clients on how to improve communication and understanding of each other to manage conflict and have their emotional needs met. The therapist will also advise couples on how to repair relations with each other when conflict arises, and therefore avoid lasting damage.

Is the Gottman method evidence-based?

Yes, this method is an evidence-based approach to couples therapy. The method is based on more than 40 years of research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the psychologists who developed the method. The Gottmans analysed decades of data to draw conclusions about what types of interactions are likely to lead to specific results, and which interventions are most likely to lead to success. Studies have found that this approach leads to improvements in relationship satisfaction, intimacy, communication skills, and a lower rate of divorce.

How long does the Gottman method take?

The duration of treatment depends on the specific challenges clients face. Sessions are typically 60 to 90 minutes long, and an average course of treatment is around 10 sessions. In some cases, such as for couples dealing with a critical problem, the therapist will suggest an intensive course of treatment, with daily sessions over the first two to four days. Treatment is complete when the couple is satisfied and has met the goals they’ve set, and when the therapist believes they have the skills to continue on their own.

Is the Gottman method effective?

Through the Gottman method, couples can achieve changes that are real and sustainable. This treatment has been used for more than 40 years; the method is supported by empirical research, including randomised controlled trials that have demonstrated effectiveness in improving relationship outcomes for couples. Like any talk therapy, success or failure depends in large part on how committed the clients are to making positive changes and working toward results.
