Therapy with Natalie
I seek to support couples to heal the hurts between them and together forge a calmer, stronger and more connected relationship.
I utilise Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work with couples. This is a therapy approach built upon over 40 years worth of research on romantic relationships and is one of the strongest evidence based approaches available for relationship therapy. My goal when working with couples is to help them repair the current issues in their relationship and also learn the skills and strategies required to maintain these positive changes over time. By changing both the way they manage conflict and the way they nurture their relationship couples can create a ‘new normal’ which is stronger, more connected and more fun than their relationship has ever been.
All relationship issues can be addressed using the Gottman Method including but not limited to recovering from infidelity; managing conflict; improving communication; parenting successfully together; and improving passion, intimacy and sex. I offer an intensive relationship therapy program commencing with 90 minute, individually tailored weekly sessions and transitioning to less frequent sessions once initial progress has been made.
