Online Couples Counselling/ Marriage Therapy

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship”


Gottman Method Couples Therapy Online

We use the Gottman approach when providing online relationship therapy to couples. Gottman Method Couples Therapy draws on the knowledge of 40 years of research and clinical practice to help couples break through barriers, and improve the level of connection, intimacy and understanding within their relationships. Online Gotttman Method Couples Therapy is structured, evidence-based, and goal-oriented. The interventions used in online relationship counselling were developed as a result of research data, from a study conducted by Dr Gottman on more than 3000 couples.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy is designed to help partners:

• Increase closeness, respect and affection
• Increase understanding between partners
• Break through and resolve conflict, when partners feel stuck
• Keep calm when discussing conflict.

Getting to Know You and Your Relationship

The Gottman method involves a 3 part assessment process. The online relationship assessment process is designed to get a clear picture of your relationship including the strengths and issues you bring into therapy as well as understanding each of you as individuals. Before your first session you will be asked to complete an online set of questions about your relationship and your individual histories.



In your first online couples therapy session, you and your partner will have the opportunity to share what has brought you to couples therapy and we will discuss the history of your relationship. 

02 - 03


Session 2 and 3 are conducted as individual online therapy sessions and provide an opportunity to get to know you as an individual and develop an understanding of how your background and past experiences influence your current experience of your relationship.



In session 4 your online psychologist will share the understanding they have gained throughout the assessment process and each member of the couple shares how this summary compares with their own experience of the relationship. You will discuss potential goals for online couples counselling that arise from this assessment and work together to develop a plan forward

Comprehensive Assessment Process

In our experience couples are usually eager to complete the assessment process quickly and begin working on their relationship. Your assessment process will all be completed on the same day and you will begin therapy the following week.

Your assessment will look something like this:

9:00 - 10:05 am Assessment Session 1 - Couple Session
10:15 - 11:20 am Assessment Session 2 - Partner 1
11:30 - 12:35 pm Assessment Session 3 - Partner 2
1:05 - 2:10 pm Assessment Session 4- Couple Session Feedback and Treatment Planning

When you book in for your online couples therapy assessment please also book 2 consecutive weekly online couples therapy treatment sessions (80 mins). At times our calendar can be booked 6 weeks to 2 months in advance, it is important to us that you are not left waiting for an appointment. If we decide any of your planned appointments are not required, we can adjust this as needed. Please feel free to call or email our support team with any questions you have.
