Campbell understands that relationships can be tricky things to negotiate and believes strongly that loving and accepting love from another person is a skill that can be taught and learned.
Campbell offers Gottman Method Couples Therapy. He has trained in levels 1, 2 and 3 of this modality and is currently working with the Gottman Institute in the USA to become one of the few certified practitioners in Australia.
Gottman Therapy is based on 40 years of research conducted by psychologists Julie and John Gottman, of the Gottman Institute in Seattle, Washington, USA.
The goals of Gottman Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.
For some couples the reality of attending weekly or fortnightly sessions may be difficult or unappealing due to factors such as limited access to treatment, remote living, child care and work commitments or busy lifestyles.
Intensive Marathon Couples Therapy using the Gottman Therapy approach is a dynamic and innovate alternative. It consists of 2 days in which you and your partner engage in intensive marital therapy for 6 – 7 hours per day broken down into 4 x 90 – 100 minute sessions. Think of it is 6 months of progress squeezed into a few intense days.
This innovative and highly successful approach can rapidly de-escalate negative cycles, hone in on major barriers within the relationship, and more quickly move toward repairing and strengthening relationships.
We are having trouble keeping up with demand here at Island Psychology.
