What is Imago?

Relationship Therapy

Imago is a type of relationship therapy which provides a unique opportunity for couples to learn how to use the issues that they have in their relationship for growth and healing.

Imago relationship therapy is a highly effective form of relationship and couples therapy that has positively affected thousands of couples around the world. This transformational method of therapy was developed 25 years ago by Dr. Harville Hendrix & Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt, and provides resources for couples/individuals seeking to find a way to be more effective in their life and relationships.

It offers communication tools that will allow both people to feel safe and connected as they talk about their problems, instead of entering the painful “power struggle”. What’s a power struggle? It’s typically about RIGHT/WRONG, WIN/LOSE, YOU or ME thinking.

These struggles create a disconnect with your partner. We have different ways that we disconnect: addiction, affairs, silence, anger and name calling. All this does is create more pain. Part of our problem is in how we may have been brought up. We don’t always know any better.

Imago Relationship Therapy’s mission is to create a new way to love and to transform the world one relationship at a time. Imago Relationship International develops and supports a global network of professionals who are committed to using Imago theory and practices to help all interested people to create and sustain mutually fulfilling, healing relationships. Another one of their missions is to help parents rear whole and loving children.

Imago Relationship Therapy will:

  • Use relationship challenges to promote growth and healing
    Develop compassion and empathy for yourself and your partner
    Feel safety and passion in your relationship
    Bring romance back into your lives
    Develop better relationships with family and friends
    Create the relationship you’ve always wanted

Who will benefit?

  • Couples who want to learn more effective ways to communicate
    Couples who are thinking about divorce
    Couples who have had affairs
    Anyone who wants to improve the quality of his or her relationship

Most people are not strangers to the pain and disillusionment of love gone awry. Yet most couples are unaware of the tremendous potential for healing and growth that already exists in their relationship. Get your journey off the ground with an Imago workshop.

Do we come on a weekly basis?

You can have a session weekly or twice a month or once a month. It depends on the results you are looking for. Each session is ninety minutes long.

Imago relationship therapy aims to equip couples with the tools necessary to relate to each other in healthier ways, and reveal the emotional pathway formed in childhood that led them to their current situation. This form of therapy combines spiritual and behavioral techniques with Western psychological methodologies in order to assist couples in unveiling their unconscious components. Imago relationship therapy involves viewing a conflict between couples as merely the outcome of specific circumstances—not the cause of disharmony. By examining the conflict itself, a couple can arrive at a satisfying solution, heal, and then grow together.
