Relationships can be very challenging and may not provide the support and satisfaction we would like. Difficulties arise for many reasons such as extra marital affairs and betrayals, ongoing conflict , addiction issues, past trauma, financial problems , parenting issues etc . The Gottman Method of Couples Counselling is based on over 40 years of research by John Gottman and offers an empirical based model of intervention starting with a full assessment of your current functioning – both strengths and challenges – and working towards a healthier relationship. We want you to enjoy the relationship you deserve . One that provides you with emotional support and the companionship you desire.
