The Gottman Method was developed by the world-renowned psychologists Drs. John and Julie Gottman. It consists of two important parts: a thorough assessment and a series of effective interventions. This program includes free secure messaging to answer questions and provide feedback (it may take 24 hours for Cardinal Point Counseling to respond) and a self-help treatment plan. These tools can be optionally used with or without therapy. It should reduce the duration and improve the outcomes with both together. This program is available from Cardinal Point Counseling for a one-time, non-refundable fee of $300 (the program is only available through approved therapists). The system will require you to select a 5-minute appointment, but attending is unnecessary, and you will receive all you need via email. Bi-weekly check-ins through electronic messaging from your counselor are included (for six months). For those who have already purchased the assessment, your cost will be reduced by the cost of the assessment. This is a new optional service.
As with any new skill, practice makes perfect! The Gottman Relationship Builder is a collection of exercises and videos designed to improve your relationship and minimize relapse chances. This powerful system of proven interventions includes:
- 13 modules that cover all facets of the Gottman Method: friendship, intimacy, how well you know your partner, how you manage emotions and conflict, how you share your values and goals, and what gives meaning to your lives
- 90 short and informative videos of Drs. John and Julie Gottman role-playing the right and wrong way to use your newfound skills (you do not have to watch all 90 videos, only the ones that are relevant to our work together)
- 35 easy and fun exercises that you can do with your partner
The video below is not one of the videos included in the self-help program but provides an example of something that could be covered. Practice exercises and therapist follow-up typically follow videos.
The assessment identifies challenging areas of your relationship. Over the last 40 years, Drs. John and Julie Gottman developed scientifically proven intervention techniques that have helped more than 100,000 couples. We will use these powerful techniques to strengthen your bond as a couple.
Once you invest in the Relationship Builder, you will have access to it indefinitely and can return to it repeatedly. The Builder will also make our sessions together (if you have them) more effective so that you can reignite that spark faster! Those who don’t schedule sessions can ask questions via online messaging.
Please let me know if you would like more information, and I would be happy to answer any questions you have. Ask me about exclusive pricing for the Builder that I can offer you as a therapist using Gottman Connect!
