Imago Therapy

What is Imago Dialogue?

Imago Dialogue is the language of connection, which can keep your relationships fresh and dynamic. It helps you to get beneath everyday conflicts to rediscover a deeper connection, and rekindle love.

In dealing with others, we often build a protective shell in order to feel safe, keeping others out. Sometimes we even fight to stay safe in our shells. Imago Dialogue makes it possible to reach out beyond our shells.

Within the safe environment created by Imago Dialogue, we listen without judgment, and in turn feel delighted by being heard.  Being clearly heard and understood creates safety, which leads to deeper connection and intimacy. That’s the power of Imago Dialogue.
