How is a session with a certified Imago therapist different from any other therapy?
It is different from most therapies because it involves the therapist teaching and coaching you as a couple, giving you tools to help you transform your relationship in this way. Instead of each of you talking with the therapist or the therapist being a referee, you will be talking to each other in a safe and more structured way that is not blaming or shaming, and that helps each of you help your partner understand what an issue is like for you. You will also learn how to use that information about yourself and your partner to take very specific steps to change your behaviour in a way that is not only healing for your partner and meeting their needs, but in a way that helps you get some of yourself back and express your own aliveness more fully. It also gives you ways to bring more romance, fun, pleasure into your partnership.
