What is the “Gottman Method” of Couples Therapy?
John Gottman was a couples therapy researcher and psychologist at the University of Washington who extensively studied relationships and divorce. Through his research, he was able to identify ineffective communication styles (criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, and contempt), micro-expressions, core components of healthy “relationship houses,” and more.
His findings have directly contributed to better and more effective couples therapy, with methodologies that are:
The progress that is typically made during these therapy sessions is often long lasting, and provides you with tools you can continue to use to grow your relationship and help you thrive.
Why Consider Gottman Method Couples Therapy?
There are many potential ways to address relationship challenges through the use of relationship counseling. Yet the Gottman Method does stand out from many others. It is one of the few that has been extensively researched and integrates both researched and real-world data. It is digestible – most couples understand the process and find themselves very engaged with it.
It is also broad, and able to address many challenges that relationships face in both the short and long term. While most people can identify problems like “fighting/arguing” and emotional or physical infidelity, many couples do find it difficult to notice some of the microaggressions and communication tools that partners use that can cause challenges in the relationship. The Gottman Method successfully addresses those in effective ways.

Our couples therapists at Flourish Psychology believe that every relationship is different, and everyone deserves to receive a treatment methodology that makes sense for their struggles.
