RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING

Are you constantly fighting with your partner?

Do you find that you argue about the same things over and over again?

Does discussing difficult issues always end in a fight?

Do you frequently think that divorce/separation is the only answer?

 

If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions then you would benefit from Imago Relationship counselling.

You will learn

  • How to express how you feel
  • How to ask for what you want
  • Identify how you are contributing to the tensions in your relationship
  • That your partner has a different reality which is not wrong because it differs from your reality
  • What triggers your partner’s behaviour

The core skill of Imago counselling is the imago dialogue which facilitates connection, understanding and deep intimacy when couples will experience that “falling in love” sensation all over again.

What is the difference between Imago Relationship counselling and other forms of counselling?

Typically the usual models of relationship counselling involve a couple talking about their problems – they dissect, apportion blame and look for solutions. There are often negotiations, compromises and agreements which are often a band-aid over the real issue.

The frustrations that a couple experience are not the real problem but a symptom of a deeper underlying problem, usually childhood wounding.

Imago relationship counselling helps a couple to understand the real issue on a deeper level.
When this happens they can move towards each other, connect with each other and they are able to talk in a way where they can both feel heard.
They will understand each other and then can begin to have a more empathetic connection to each other and the problems and issues will dissolve.

Couples who attend the sessions will learn skills that will help them to identify the real cause of conflict, how to work through it and transform their relationship.

The process provides a safe environment to explore painful and sensitive issues.

All sessions require the couple to come together.

The duration of the sessions is 1.5 hours for the first session and 1 hour thereafter. Usually, a minimum of 10 – 12 sessions is necessary to make meaningful changes to your relationship. However, more sessions may be required under certain circumstances.

START WORKING ON YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

I had been married for a long time when I trained in Imago Relationship counselling.  I couldn't help but think how different it would have been for my 3 children growing up if my husband and I had had the skills of intentional communication.  When couples blame, criticize and judge each other it's as if they are standing on either side of a bridge and the children are in a gully absorbing all the debris.  I am passionate about equipping couples with the tools of intentional dialogue so that the next generation can grow and thrive in a home of emotional safety.
