The Gottman Method is a highly researched therapy developed by Dr John and Julie Schwarts Gottman. This evidence-based intervention aims to help couples gain a deeper appreciation of each other and improve their closeness and communication.
You and your partner will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire about your relationship. Please note that this is an additional client expense.
The Gottman Method includes the following appointments:
Appointment one: Couples.
This initial session is conducted with your partner. Jen will undertake a detailed relationship history and ask questions to understand your connection and how it has changed over time. She will also talk about your difficulties and strengths as a couple.
Appointments two and three: Individual sessions.
Both you and your partner will attend an individual session on your own with Jen so she can learn about your family and personal history.
This is a couple’s session to help you both understand your relationship and develop a roadmap to move forward as a couple.
Jen Riches has completed Level 1 & 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
All appointments run for 50 minutes.
