Dr. John Gottman’s Work

Have you ever read something and thought, “Any ten-year-old  could have

told you that!”  Then again, sometimes information is a surprise.  And really useful.

Dr. Gottman discovered some keys to relationship success. 

He found that by watching couples interact for just a short time he could predict which ones would  divorce.  And he spent a lot of time figuring out what this meant.

Dr. Gottman discovered that there are specific types of interactions and things that couples do that increase or decrease the likelihood of relationship success.

Many couples are able to use the knowledge and techniques generated by Dr. Gottman’s research to make real and lasting changes that improve their relationships.

Would you like to put these ideas and techniques and other powerful ideas and techniques

to work in your relationship?

Couples counseling is the ideal place to begin this work.
