Your workshop actually begins a week or two before the weekend when we call you both to get to know you and your goals a bit better. This helps us to ensure that your weekend is as successful and personalised as possible.
During the weekend you will be introduced to the 40+ years of incredible research conducted by Dr John Gottman on what makes relationships last and what makes them fail. From these research findings you will be introduced to a range of activities and exercises for you and your partner to try out in relative privacy while our Certified Gottman Therapists make themselves available to give you a hand to ensure you and your partner can successfully complete the exercises.
Couples’ privacy is always respected and no personal information is discussed in front of the group. Over the two days we will specifically assist you to work on improving your friendship, intimacy and connection; your ability to effectively manage conflict; and your sense of togetherness in a shared meaning system. All of these things are based on scientific evidence that demonstrates how these things lead to very happy, satisfying and fulfilling long term relationships.
