About Couples Communication Classes in Olney, Maryland
By Micah Brady, LCSW-C, Gottman Educator & Therapist
Do you want more love and affection from your lover with less arguing? Do you want to have more fun, and be less frustrated? Do you know how to get out of some of the typical relationship traps and ruts that all couples deal with?
As a therapist who specializes in romantic relationships, I know couples want and deserve lasting relationships. They want engaging conversations, enduring passion, unwavering support, more peace, and steadfast trust. They want to recapture part of that honeymoon period without all of the things that may have bogged them down.
How do you get there? Is it possible? What about all of the well-intended but often confusing or conflicting advice?
Yes, it is possible, and I can offer you a road map. Have you heard of a psychologist who has been able to predict with 91% accuracy which couples will stay together and which won’t? His name is Dr. John Gottman, and he’s the mack daddy of relationships. Together with this his wife, he founded the world-renowned Gottman Institute in Seattle, Washington. Based on 40 years of evidence-based research, Dr. John Gottman has figured out the answers to many of our burning questions.
I can offer you a roadmap to some of the most common challenges and issues in relationships in just two hours. The Couples Communication Workshop feedback that I most frequently get is “I wish I knew about this earlier, I would have saved myself so much heartache,” “This is extremely eye-opening,” and “Everyone should take this.”
A positive learning experience without any pressure.
What I like about workshops is that it is a learning experience without any pressure. It is not group therapy, so no one is required to disclose anything about themselves or their relationship. They get the benefit of learning the skills and having some take home exercises to try, but no pressure to share anything. In fact, I usually just ask participants for their first name and what they want to get out of the workshop. I keep the size to 8 couples, so everyone gets personalized attention if they want it.
You can attend solo, no partner required to attend.
Another thing I like about the workshop experience is that you don’t have to wait for your partner to be ready, or even be in town. You can attend solo, or Skype your partner in if you have hectic schedules. If you are processing a breakup and trying to figure out if you want to date again, want to beef up your skills and ask some questions, go ahead and come solo.
This introductory workshop is a great way to save time, money, energy, and heartache!
