Relationship Tip

#Relationship Tip

- If you have something you want to discuss with your partner, asking "Is now a good time to talk?' can make a BIG difference. It gives the other person a "heads up" that you want their undivided attention, that this is important to you, that you want them to really listen to you. 

It also shows that you are respectful of their time and are not assuming that they are available on your schedule.

 

 

Imago relationship Therapy

 

The theory's basic premise is that the adult committed relationships are there to help us finish unfinished childhood business and it is this dyad (couple) that has the potential for the greatest healing and growth possible.- Maya Kollman

 

According to Dr. Harville Hendrix & Helen LaKelly Hunt, (The creators of Imago relationship theory), we all have unmet needs from our childhood and look to our partner to meet those needs and help us to heal and grow.

Testimony November 2021.

"Initially, my partner and I were fairly apprehensive about completing the 'Get The Love You Want' seminar. We had never attended a workshop of this nature before but pushed ourselves to attend with the shared goal of bettering our relationship. We immediately felt welcomed by Francis who created a comfortable, calming and safe space for us to share. Francis' wealth of knowledge was astounding! Her delivery was empathetic, understanding and calculated. We learnt a considerable amount in what felt a short period of time. The information and processes Francis delivered were so unbelievably relevant to our relationship. We were able to finally put the pieces of the 'puzzle' together and understand why we chose each other in the first place. We learnt how to communicate in an open, honest and safe way which has already made a significant difference to our household. I truly believed that nothing could have saved our relationship and I'm so relieved to say I no longer believe that. I now feel confident and excited for our future together. Thank you Francis! Thank you so much"  - Libby, Jake. A very enlightening process of working on a marriage that really needed repair. The process of allows for open dialogue. Francis is obviously, exceedingly passionate about the Imago process. Very knowledgeable and caring. Fiona.
