Gottman Therapy Marriage Workshops in British Columbia
As a Gottman Leader for the Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, I am happy to offer couples workshops in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley from Vancouver to Burnaby and beyond.
Couples Workshops in Vancouver
Workshops can be offered in many formats: 2-day retreat (8 hours total), 9-week course (12 hours total), single 90-minute booster sessions, and shorter workshops of 4-6 hours in length. Longer workshops cover more of the Seven Principles book and contain more relationship exercises that you can practice in real life.
By bringing the Seven Principles workshop into your community space or church, you can help your relationship thrive and survive the challenges of a joined life.
