Imago Relationship Therapy
Developed in the late 1980s by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., bestselling author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide For Couples, Imago Therapy is a practical form of couple’s counseling that teaches healthy communication techniques while addressing any childhood issues that may be interfering with the health of your relationship.
The term ‘Imago’ refers to a composite image of all the positive and negative traits of our primary caretakers, which resides deep in our unconscious mind and forms a “blueprint” of the person we ultimately seek out and marry. In other words, we attract partners who remind us of our parents in order to heal whatever emotional wounds we suffered during childhood (no matter how inadvertent they may have been). Therefore, the goal of Imago Therapy is to simultaneously discover these unconscious dynamics while teaching very practical communication tools that guide you to a conscious relationship state. In as little as 12 weeks, the end result is a healthier relationship consisting of two mature, caring individuals who are willing to take responsibility for their part and make positive changes to create a lasting relationship based on safety, passion and fun.
