Imago techniques have proven very useful in smoothing out various misunderstandings of daily life, managing conflicts and restoring good will and mutual respect. Imago dialogues assist couples attain a conscious, connected, and intimate relationship.

Imago is based on the premise that growth and healing occur within the context of a committed relationship. During Imago sessions, both partners communicate in supported structured dialogues. In a safe environment they practice to open their hearts, to listen to each other, to share feelings, and to empathize with each other’s vulnerabilities.

Each partner will learn to communicate what really matters in their intimate relationship - what each needs to feel loved, connected, and safe.
