Relationship Counseling Goals and Approach
Gottman Certified Couples Therapy
We have developed our counselling/coaching approach around the research of Dr. John Gottman, Ph.D., who has spent 38 years studying what works in relationships. The author or co-author of 178 published academic articles and author of 37 books, he is a world-renown expert in the field of relationships. Among others, he has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, Today and The CBS Morning News as well as having had articles featured in numerous magazines. (Some people may find his name familiar from Malcolm Gladwell’s bestselling book, Blink, where Dr. Gottman’s work was featured in chapter one.) Because of our extra training we are called Certified Gottman Couples Therapists
