Understanding The Gottman Method

Renowned psychologist John Gottman developed the Gottman Method, a powerful approach geared towards enhancing a couple’s love, affection, and intimacy.

Over several decades and countless hours, Gottman meticulously observed both happy and unhappy couples. His comprehensive research led to the publication of his findings on what he dubbed “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” – these four horsemen represent the primary damaging communication patterns that drive many relationships towards ending in a breakup. Fascinatingly, through the application of these patterns, Gottman possesses an astonishing 90% predictive accuracy regarding the likelihood of couples parting ways.

The four primary behaviors in question are:

  • Criticism
  • Contempt
  • Defensiveness
  • Stonewalling

The primary focus of the Gottman Method centers on removing these negative patterns by nurturing friendship between partners, managing conflicts, and establishing shared meaning.

We offer the Gottman Method here in New Jersey because it stands as one of the most successful forms of couples therapy available. The role of our therapist involves pinpointing destructive behaviors within your relationship and empowering you to substitute them with positive alternatives through a diverse range of tools, interventions, and practical exercises.

How Does The Gottman Method Work?

In New Jersey, our Gottman Method therapy sessions take place within a secure and non-judgmental environment. During these sessions, both you and your partner can freely express yourselves, assured that your voices will be heard and your concerns understood. 

Your therapist’s role is to guide you in pinpointing the vital areas that require transformation and equipping you with practical strategies to cultivate a mutually enriching partnership.

Central to the Gottman Method is the idea of constructing what’s referred to as a “Sound Relationship House.” This foundation consists of layers that include trust, unwavering commitment, shared aspirations, and a profound comprehension of each other’s perspectives.

Fostering Shared Meaning: Our therapists will actively collaborate with you to establish meaningful rituals and routines, fortifying your connection, amplifying intimacy, and fostering quality moments together.

Cultivating Positivity: Embrace the art of expressing gratitude, exhibiting kindness, and nurturing a consistently optimistic perspective on your relationship and each other. This invaluable practice fuels a surge in positive interactions between the two of you.

Turning Towards, Not Away: Receive expert guidance on deepening your bond and trust, transforming moments of need into opportunities for mutual support and connection.

Celebrating Affection and Admiration: Our therapists will encourage the regular exchange and recognition of the qualities you hold dear and admire in each other, fortifying the foundation of your relationship.
