My Approach to Couples Counselling
My approach to couples counselling is combining the principles of Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) (Developed by Dr Susan Johnson) and Gottman Therapy (Developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman).
This seamlessly integrated approach combines EFT’s emphasis on exploring and healing emotional attachment wounds with Gottman’s practical tools for communication and conflict resolution, offering couples a comprehensive path to relational growth.
Using this approach I have found couples gain insight into their underlying emotional dynamics and attachment patterns that are standing in their way of connection.
Counselling empowers couples to navigate conflict with empathy, while building a foundation of emotional safety and trust equips couples with the insights, tools, and strategies they need to create a more satisfying and enduring relationship.
It’s never too late to seek support and work towards a healthier, more fulfilling relationship through counselling.
