Deliver Results


Attracting Couples

What if we could show you a way to help people even more effectively, enabling you to consistently experience the delight of seeing people leave your office happier, and stronger?

  • And we can offer to enrich the isolation of your own office, by connecting you with an active, supportive and stimulating worldwide community.

  • Imago offers the opportunity for you to excel at couples therapy. Really good couples therapists are rare, so they naturally attract more couples. That means not only more clients for your practice, but many of these are able and willing to pay private fees without the hassle of reimbursements and managed care.

“For one human being to love another human being:

that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.


Loving does not at first mean merging, surrendering, and uniting with another person – it is a high inducement for the individual to ripen, to become something in himself, to become world, to become world in himself for the sake of another person; it is a great, demanding claim on him, something that chooses him and calls him to vast distances.” Rainer Maria Rilke From Letters to a Young Poet – 1904

How does Imago Couples Therapy make working with couples into such a rewarding and successful experience?

  • Imago delivers breakthroughs

    It can be so exciting when a couple who seems caught up in their pain, suddenly breaks through to a new realization which brings happiness and love. This is the true heart of Imago marriage counseling, where it’s the couple who take ownership for their own work, and are therefore much more open to those “Ah ha” moments that create results.

  • Imago provides a framework for clinical practice.

    You can use Imago to more effectively apply all your existing skills and experience. Imago interventions usually have the couples facing each other, and speaking directly to their partner, using structured dialogue processes which you guide them through. This supports the skillful and attuned use of prompts which guide the couple to safely explore issues like attachment wounding together.

  • Through Imago, couples take ownership for their work.

    Do you ever find yourself with couples who get stuck in the process? Maybe you wish they could grasp what is so clear to you, and overcome their resistance? Imago invites couples to understand the couples counseling process so they can feel more motivated to explore their own barriers to growth. When your couples attend Imago weekend workshops, they often return with so much insight and enthusiasm that the next few sessions are full of excitement and discovery.
