The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

is like no other workshop! It is based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr. John Gottman as presented in his bestselling book: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

With over 40 years of scientific data and research John Gottman and his team developed this curriculum which has been put to the test in thousands of Seven Principals of Making Marriage Work Workshops around the world. Only to prove that your marriage really can be revived and restored!

Gottman found that couples who went through his program only had a 20% relapse rate compared to traditional counselling couples who had a 50% or more relapse rate.  Research also shows that on average, couples wait six years from the first signs of problems before they seek help.
