Couples Therapy and Interventions
The Gottman Method interventions are designed to help couples increase closeness and intimacy, heal from past hurts, create shared meaning and to manage conflict better by replacing negative conflict patterns with positive interactions.
Couples seek therapy for:
- Conflict and arguments
- Poor communication
- Emotional distance
- Sexual difficulties
- Betrayals of trust, including infidelity
- Differences in values and beliefs, such as with money and parenting
Couples who are doing well can also benefit from counselling. Therapy assists in strengthening the relationship further, finding more joy in your shared lives and harnessing healthier ways to cope with issues as they arise in the future.
Frequency of sessions: Sessions are typically once a week until, together, we deem it appropriate to space sessions further apart.
Length of sessions: Couples sessions are typically 80 minutes.
Duration of therapy: The length of therapy depends on the nature of your problems and their severity, as well as how long they have been going on. When it comes to therapy, you get out what you put in. Reaching your goals is a collaborative effort that takes place over time, and your participation and engagement will impact your rate of progress.
Cost: The fee for the first 80-minute assessment session is 1130 AED and includes the cost of the online assessment. Subsequent 80-minute sessions are 1025 AED per session.
