Gottman Certified Therapy
Using the methods created by Dr. John Gottman, the team at BestMarriages.ca addresses the numerous issues commonly affecting couples. Their therapy sessions are centered around improving communication, working through disagreements without hostility and building a strong future together.
While these skills must be created and implemented by both members of the relationship in order to be successful, individual counselling may also be necessary.
One of the difficulties plaguing many couples is changes in personality. People evolve; these changes are intensified by negative experiences such as addiction, past abuse and mental or emotional disorders. These situations can place strain on even the most close-knit relationships. The Gottman Method covers this issue. When applied in individual counselling, it can provide triumph for trauma victims. Counselors also help spouses understand the impact these adversities have on their victims. Their partner may never completely recover from the trauma, but they can learn to accept these changes and help their spouse face their problems.
Another problem acknowledged in the Gottman Method is lack of communication and inability to resolve conflicts. Some people resort to abuse in such situations. Reaching beyond the traditional concept of physical harm, many abuse their partners emotionally. Name calling, accusations, extensive criticism and other forms of hurtful behavior fall into this category.
Individual Counselling with the staff of BestMarriages.ca provides multi-faceted assistance in this scenario as well. The abusive member of the relationship can be taught anger management strategies and more productive methods of communicating their feelings. The spouse subjected to abuse will receive recovery therapy to help provide healing from the harm inflicted by their partner.
