Couples who can't communicate will have problems in their relationships, and couples who have problems in their relationships struggle to communicate effectively. After seeing the truth of this in his own marriage Steven Dromgool was on a quest to find a way to break the patterns of disconnection that plague more than half of all western marriages.
Steven travelled around the world to train under experts including Harville Hendrix, John and Julia Gottman, Stan Tatkin, Maya Kollman, Bruce Crapucettes, Tammy Nelson. He has been actively involved in promoting and linking therapeutic and brain science insights to produce more powerful and integrated connection solutions. His collaboration with other passionate international clinicians led him to be a contributor to Mindful Integrated Relationship Therapy - the first evidence based couples therapy training modality.
His approach is to empower couples with tools to communicate effectively so that they can feel safe, loved and desired. The approach is grounded in Relational Mindfulness an evidence based and integrative approach that incorporates insights from the 3 most popular and effective and evidence based couples therapy approaches and fuses these with relational neurobiology. Steven is now teaching Mindful Integrated Relationship Therapy in New Zealand and Internationally.
Steven's approach combines practical guidance and coaching in a warm and safe environment, along with teaching about the 'hows' and 'whys' of building love. Steven also works with singles who want to prepare themselves to be in committed relationships or who are recovering from past relationship hurts. He is also very keen to work with couples preparing for marriage to help them avoid years of unnecessary pain and disappointment by building love well in the first place.
