Robin holds qualifications in Imago Couples Therapy. His approach helps couples understand how and why their underlying emotional buttons get pushed. Robin helps you deal with painful emotional hot-spots in a way that creates a deeper, more empathic connection with your partner.
Two of our psychologists – Jenny and Rachel – have trained in Sue Johnson’s Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). EFCT is an excellent method to help you STOP fighting and to learn to express your primary emotions and needs.
Jenny and Rachel also hold Level 2 qualifications in Couples Counselling from the renowned Gottman Institute. Their approach, known as The Gottman Method, complements EFCT and other approaches. The Gottman Method is the most widely-recognised modality for couples therapy. It helps couples build a more solid foundation for a long-term relationship. Ingrid and Lynne also hold Level 1 Couples Counselling certificates from the Gottman Institute. Pia is currently being mentored in The Gottman Method.
