Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a modality based on over 40 years of research that has studied interactions between couples in various situations. In what began as a search without a hypothesis, Dr. John Gottman started to study the interaction between partners to find what makes a couple happy or unhappy. They learned body language, vocabulary, arguments, friendship, goals, and more and found overwhelmingly reliable trends in how couples who stayed together and separated interacted with each other.
Dr. John Gottman is a mathematician and scientist, and Dr. Julie Gottman is a psychologist. Together, they combined their research and counseling expertise and developed a tried and true relationship therapy method designed to examine a couple’s current habits and ways of interacting, turn those habits into strengths, and create or rebuild a satisfying, long-lasting relationship.
