What is the Gottman Method?

Updated: Dec 8, 2023


Conscious Health Clinic is proud to provide Gottman Method Relationship Counselling at our Wollongong clinic. But what is the Gottman Method?

For couples seeking guidance and support, Gottman Couples Therapy has emerged as a beacon of hope, offering evidence-based techniques that transcend gender, orientation, and identity.

Developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the Gottman Method is grounded in decades of research on what makes relationships thrive or falter. The therapy is based on the Sound Relationship House Theory, which identifies key components essential for building and maintaining a strong connection. This approach has been proven effective across diverse couples, including those in the LGBTIQ community.


From the Gottman website:

"The Gottman Method is designed to support couples across all economic, racial, sexual orientation, and cultural sectors. Outcome research has shown Gottman Method Couples Therapy to be effective for treating same-sex relationships.

Some of the relationship issues that may be addressed in therapy include:

  • Frequent conflict and arguments

  • Poor communication

  • Emotionally distanced couples on the verge of separation

  • Specific problems such as sexual difficulties, infidelity, money, and parenting

Even couples with “normal” levels of conflict may benefit from the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Gottman-trained therapists aim to help couples build stronger relationships overall and healthier ways to cope with issues as they arise in the future."
