An approach to couples therapy that includes an assessment of the couples relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. Goals and principles of the Gottman Method are to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations and create a heightend sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.
Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) Aims to equip couples with the tools necessary to relate to eachother in healthier ways and reveal the emotional pathway formed in childhood that led them to their current situation. Imago therapy involves viewing a conflict between couples as merely the outcome of specific circumstances – not the cause of disharmony. By examining the conflict itself, a couple can arrive at a satisfying solution, heal and then GROW together.
