Couple Counselling - Imago Therapy
All relationships have ups and downs. Sometimes, though, things can get a bit stuck and it’s hard to find a positive solution. You may feel that something is missing or that there is no understanding and acknowledgement or that things have changed .... the list is long .
Whether you are feeling things just aren’t quite right or whether you are encountering serious difficulties, to have couple counselling can give you time and a safe space to talk and listen, to express your feelings and to develop some clarity and new perspective about your relationship.
I offer the Imago approach:
"Imago Relationship Therapy, developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt in 1980, is a form of relationship and couples therapy that focuses on transforming conflict into healing and growth through relational connection".
The approach helps couples to understand the hidden dynamics operating in their marriage. It allows couples to move from blame and reactivity, to understanding and empathy, so you can create a deeper and loving connection with each other.
Through the "Imago dialogue" you will learn how to better communicate and you will develop a new and positive way to relate with each other.
