Imago Relationship Therapy and the Imago Dialogue

Oct 9, 2020

Understanding Imago Relationship Therapy

Imago Relationship Therapy, also known as Imago Therapy, is a powerful approach to resolving conflicts and creating harmony in relationships. Developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt, this therapeutic model aims to help couples develop conscious relationships and deepen their connection.

At Alison K Bowles, Ma, Lmhc, we specialize in providing expert guidance using Imago Relationship Therapy. Our therapist, Alison K Bowles, is highly skilled and passionate about helping individuals and couples improve their relationships and overall well-being.

The Essence of Imago Dialogue

A key component of Imago Relationship Therapy is the Imago Dialogue. This unique form of communication enables partners to express themselves openly, honestly, and with empathy. Through the Imago Dialogue, couples can gain a deeper understanding of each other's needs, fears, and desires, leading to increased compassion and connection.

During the Imago Dialogue, each partner takes turns as a speaker and a listener. The speaker expresses their emotions, frustrations, or desires while the listener actively listens, mirroring and validating their partner's experience. This process enhances empathy and promotes understanding, transforming conflicts into opportunities for growth.
