Dr. Seth Gilligan said, “stress is inevitable but overwhelm is optional.” While life can be challenging and the future uncertain, it's often the stories we tell ourselves that lie at the root of our suffering. Do you struggle with feelings of low self-worth and inadequacy? Do you find yourself ruminating about the past or lacking the motivation to move forward? Is fear of uncertainty holding you back from the life you’d like to live? Are you stuck in a cycle of self-defeating behaviors that you'd like to change? The good news is we have more influence over our own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors than we give ourselves credit for.

Navigating the perinatal period can be both exciting and challenging. During this time, it's common to experience a wide range of emotions and adjustments. From the anticipation of a new arrival to the physical and emotional changes, the perinatal period is a unique and transformative journey. As you prepare to welcome your child, it's important to prioritize your mental well-being. Understanding the psychological aspects of this phase can help in coping with the changes and seeking support when needed. I believe in building a lasting connection with a therapist to support you through this life-changing process.

We’ve all heard the phrase, “No one ever said life would be easy.” This is certainly true, but the reality is that for many of us, life is more difficult than it needs to be. When life hits us hard, we can get stuck in a vicious cycle of anxiety or depression, and sometimes we need someone to help us see the cycle from the outside so we can develop the resilience to cope.

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.
