How to save my Relationship?
If this is the question you are asking yourself at the moment, or indeed if you’re asking friends, family and colleagues, then perhaps you would benefit from some relationship support in the form of relationship therapy or marriage guidance sessions, or a couples support group / workshop.
I offer counselling sessions for couples using Imago Relationship Therapy as my guiding theory and technique. I have found this process both magical and enlightening. I also use this technique in my couples support groups / couples workshops.
What is Imago Therapy?
The main tool of Imago Relationship Therapy is a dialogue technique which is prescriptive at first, but gradually becomes relaxed and playful as time goes on and the steps become ingrained. It is a way of learning more about yourself and your partner, as well as the problems that keep you apart, so that you can better understand your relationship and begin to work together to improve it in a way that serves you both.
So if you are asking questions like:
- Should I get a divorce?
- Should we stay together for the kids?
- How to save my relationship, or how to save my marriage?
- How to forgive my partner?
- Should I marry him? Should I marry her?
- How to move on after an argument?
- How to heal a broken heart, by staying together?
- How to move ahead despite our disagreements?
Then Imago couples therapy sessions or a couples support group/workshop could help!
If you see me as a couple, I will generally encourage you to commit to 6-12 sessions (depending on the main issues presented), and then to review after those sessions whether or not you would like to continue. You may decide that you have learnt enough about one another from our sessions and decide to continue the techniques in your own time at home. Alternatively, you may find that you still benefit from the guidance and want to commit to a few more hours.
Sessions are 1-1.5 hours. The cost is €60.00 for a one hour couples therapy session, and €80.00 for a 1.5 hour couples therapy session. My current couples workshop price (full weekend) is €200.00 early bird, and €250.00 full price per couple.
As a side note, Imago can also be a useful technique between friends, colleagues and other people in close relationship. It is used as far afield as Palestine and in West African prisons (via our charity FSIP) to help resolve conflict and promote understanding between different groups.
