Seminar Description

Welcome to the Seven Principles Program

This is an educational workshop, meaning that it was designed to serve as teaching and guidance for you and is NOT couples therapy. Principles that were developed by the world renowned psychologist, Dr. John Gottman.


Dr Gottman compiled over 40 years of research of 3000 couples to develop the 7 Principles. These principles are used by therapists regularly in their practices worldwide.
