Imago Relationship Therapy is a form of couples counseling innovated by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., in his popular book called "Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples". The theory is based on psychological and spiritual principles that set it slightly apart from other forms of therapy. It uses specialized techniques to help couples move past destructive patterns and behaviors and achieve a relationship that can be a vehicle for personal healing and growth.
Imago... a new way to love
When we fall in love, it's supposed to be forever. We meet the person of our dreams and a magical transformation takes place within us. We feel alive, whole, connected to the world and the people in it. Then, before we know it, that magical feeling disappears. Disillusioned, our dreams shattered, we begin to feel angry and betrayed.
We try to coerce our partners into giving us what we need. We criticize, we withdraw, we shame, we intimidate, we cry. Some of us go on locked in this painful power struggle for years until we either break up or seek help, desperate to regain the magic we once had.
Does this describe the relationship you're currently in? Would you like to restore some of the passion and intimacy you once had? Or, are you are you fearing that you will have to look elsewhere to find the love of your life?
Whatever your situation, Imago can show you a new way to love.
What does Imago do?
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 romantic 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.
