Other Approaches

Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness emphasizes personal responsibility. It focuses on the client learning to observe the present moment in order to gain more self-awareness.

Another approach, developed by John Gottman, observes the obstacles to healthy relationships – including criticism, contempt and defensiveness. Gottman’s approach will focus on the specific ways that couples are communicating ineffectively.  This approach is solution-oriented,  non-blameful, very effective and leads to quick changes.
