Singles working with a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist discover their own patterns that lead to unsuccessful relationships, the dynamics of attraction, and how to create a healthy, happy, and lasting relationship.
"We have not yet learned to handle the tremendous power of romantic love. We turn it into tragedy and alienation more often than we evolve it into enduring human relationships. But if men and women come to understand the psychological dynamics behind romantic love and learn to handle them consciously, they will find a new possibility of relationship both to themselves and to others." Robert Johnson
Imago Relationship Therapy provides the basis for understanding how relationships really work, taking into account that childhood experiences form an unconscious image (the Imago) that is then sought after in a partner. The unconscious forces that attracted us to our partner may also be the source of conflicts and power struggles that develop in the relationship. This therapy provides a powerful and effective method for helping couples learn how to heal rather than continue to hurt one another. By becoming conscious of the childhood wounds that affect your relationship, you learn to become "wounded healers" for one another in a safe, intimate and committed relationship.
Dr. Hendrix says, "We are born in relationship. We are wounded in relationship. And, we are healed in relationship." You can learn how to make your relationship a pathway to healing and wholeness.
