Couples and Marriage Counselling Mornington & Online


“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 Counselling in Mornington & Online


We use the Gottman approach when providing couples counselling and marriage counselling 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. Gottman Method Marriage Counselling is structured, evidence-based, and goal-oriented. The interventions used in couples counselling were developed as a result of research data, from a study conducted by Dr Gottman on more than 3000 couples.

Gottman Method Couples Counselling 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 couples counselling, as well as understanding each of you as individuals. Before your first couples counselling session you will be asked to complete an online set of questions about your relationship and your individual histories. Your couples therapist/marriage counsellor will review this information before you attend your first appointment.

01

SESSION 1: UNDERSTANDING YOUR RELATIONSHIP


In your first couples counselling 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: UNDERSTANDING YOU AND YOUR PARTNER AS INDIVIDUALS


Session 2 and 3 are conducted as individual 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.


04

SESSION 4: UNDERSTANDING THE STRENGTHS OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND AREAS YOU WANT TO CHANGE


In session 4 your couples therapist/marriage counsellor 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 couples counselling that arise from this assessment and work together to develop a plan forward.
