Experiencing relationship issues? Want to strengthen your marriage?
Houston Imago counseling may be the right choice for you and your family. Widely regarded as the most powerful couples therapy and relationship education available today, this highly effective approach has positively impacted thousands of couples across the globe. There are over 2,500 Certified Imago relationship therapists in over 20 countries, and it’s the oldest school of Psychotherapy devoted exclusively to the study of couples.
What is Imago? Imago relationship therapy is named after the Latin word for “image” and refers to the “unconscious image of familiar love.” Essentially, Imago teaches that there is frequently a connection between the frustrations you feel in your adult relationships and the frustrations of your childhood.
For example, if you grew up in an emotionally reserved household, you might have trouble openly expressing your feelings for your partner. Or, if you often felt abandoned as a child, you might get incredibly anxious at the idea of your partner rejecting you.
Imago therapy seeks to help couples uncover and work through these underlying issues through the Imago dialogue. Trained Imago counselors work closely with couples to teach them how to really listen and better empathize with one another. Through this ongoing process, couples can bridge the emotional gap between them and continue striving for a conscious relationship.
