There are three stages of Gottman therapy:
Stage One – Assessment This comprises of two joint sessions and one individual session each. At the end of these three sessions we will have a comprehensive profile of your relationship and completed an online questionnaire which is called the ‘Gottman Check Up’. At this point we will mutually agree on your goals and develop a plan to achieve these.
Stage Two – Couples Counselling Sessions focus on couples immediate needs as well as the goals the have set out in their plan. We learn about the key Gottman tools and practice using these. The goal of therapy is to enable clients to manage their relationship when they return to their normal living environments.
Stage Three – Phase Out After stage two is completed it is recommended; appointments would be arranged to check in at 6, 12, 18 and 24 months to ensure desired outcomes are on track and if any adjustments or fine tuning need to be considered.
