Marriage researcher and therapist, Dr John Gottman has been researching what makes couples relationships work for over 40 years. His research can predict whether couples will stay together with a 94% accuracy.
At Eagles Mediation & Counselling Centre Ltd (EMCC), your Gottman Therapist will help you learn ways to improve your relationships. Your therapist will provide you with specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. You will also learn nuts and bolts strategies to productively manage conflicts. You will be given methods to manage solvable problems and open up dialogue about gridlocked issues. EMCC’s goal is for you to appreciate your relationship’s strengths and to grow together toward a brighter future.
Gottman’s method of couples therapy is grounded in more than four decades of research with evidence of enhancing and improving relationships that were struggling.
Clients want concrete solutions to their relationship struggles, and the tools used in the Gottman method are highly effective at solving any problem couples have.

During the first couples therapy session, your therapist will explore and assess your relationship problems and strengths and discuss what you want to get out of therapy.
After your first session with your therapist, you will each complete a relationship check-up online. You will answer questions about your personal history as well as your relationship history, including current stresses, your level of commitment to the relationship, and your values and goals.
You will see your therapist alone for one session each (30-45mins per individual). This allows you to express whatever you want to say without concern for what your partner may feel or think.
In the 3rd session, you will meet with your therapist together as a couple. Your therapist will provide an evaluation of what is happening in your relationship, including your strengths as a couple as well as the areas where growth needs to occur.
Your therapist will then lay out a roadmap and intervention plan for the issues you will work on in therapy to help you move towards a more fulfilling and rewarding relationship.
Subsequent Therapy Sessions
Subsequent sessions will focus on the roadmap and intervention plan. We will continue to work on your goals until you feel more satisfied in your relationship.
Depending on the nature and extent of your problems, you will learn to build a sound relationship house and able to self-soothe when necessary.
