What are Intensive Couples Therapy Programs?

Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling provides intensive marriage counselling and couples workshops with certified Gottman therapists in Calgary, Alberta. The goal of the programs is to help clients in committed relationships create the desired changes and positive results they seek in their relationship. These intensive counselling sessions and programs combine the most evidence-based theories, tools, and useful strategies to help couples get along.

What is the Gottman Method?

At Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling, we use the Gottman method, developed by John and Julie Gottman, to provide effective counselling to couples in need. After 30 years of research on marriage success and failure, Dr. John Gottman developed a counselling technique that helps to increase the success of relationships. The Gottman method is centred on the conclusion that relationships last longer when couples become better friends and learn to manage conflict.

Melody Evans, our Registered Clinical Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist, is trained by the Gottman Institute and provides effective, research-based Gottman couples therapy to couples in Calgary.
