Imago Relationship Therapy provides all the tools necessary for transforming relationships, including some important, immediate relief. When we remain unaware of the hidden agenda of romantic love, we keep on making the same mistakes. We need to understand that conflict is actually growth trying to happen. By resolving our problems through Imago Dialogue, the emotional bond initially created by unconscious love can evolve into the powerful bond that is real love. Imago Therapy creates a sacred space for healing and growth that can lead you to the relationship of your dreams.
The therapy is based on the understanding that romantic love is the way our unconscious seeks to restore the feeling of joyful aliveness we felt as a child. As a result, we unconsciously seek relationships with people who possess qualities we lack and who emotionally resemble our primary childhood caretakers in both positive and negative ways. This is called “finding our Imago match.”
When the magic of early love fades, confusion and disillusionment often replace it, Although this is painful, there is a positive aspect: Embedded in a couple’s frustrations lies the information the relationship needs for healing and growth into a mature, lasting love. It is geared for individuals seeking relationships, for couples entering into relationships, and for established couples who want to heal and strengthen their relationships and/or become more effective at parenting.
How Imago Creates Connection
Imago is based on the best-seller “Getting The Love You Want” by Harville Hendrix, PhD, who co-founded Imago Relationships International together with his partner, Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD.
Imago weaves together leading psychological theories and practical observations on the experience of love into an approach to relationships that is both compelling and easy to understand.
Imago Relationship theory explains why the differences which lead to frustrations are actually a natural part of what originally attracted you to each other. Using insights from brain studies and major psychological research, we can help you look at the story of your relationship in a fresh way.
The Imago Dialogue is a simple, respectful and effective way to talk with your partner about the things that really matter.
In Imago, there’s no blame, shame or criticism. Instead, a stronger connection comes through attentive hearing and being deeply heard in an emotionally safe environment. Then surprising answers to age-old conflicts can emerge.
