Couples Therapy

If you are part of a couple in distress, you may feel that there is no way out of your troubled relationship.  


Evidence-based approaches are key to understanding effective therapy, whether for individuals or for couples.  This means that the therapy you are receiving was tested against alternative methods, preferably in randomized controlled trials.  

At Burleigh Heads Psychology our Couples Therapists are highly trained in Gottman Method Couples therapy and, in some cases, Emotion Focussed Therapy for Couples as well.

Backed by over 40 years of research Gottman Method Couples therapy is a world renowned, successful approach to helping you better manage conflict, deepen your friendship, intimacy and emotional connection and create a rich sense of shared meaning together.

Trish Purnell-Webb and John Flanagan are the only two professionals in Australia who are not only Certified Gottman Couples Therapists but also Master Trainers and Consultants for the Gottman Institute.  We are passionate about delivering excellent couples therapy to obtain the best results for the couples we work with.  

We also work with Brhea Ind who is a Certified Gottman Therapist  and Karen Holmes - who are both committed to supporting couples.
