Love, that thing we have great difficulty even describing, is the only truly real and lasting experience of
life. It is the opposite of fear: the essence of relationships, the core of creativity, the grace of power,
an intricate part of who we are. It is the source of happiness, the energy that connects us and
that lives within us.
Love, like life, is stranger and far more complicated than we have been brought up to believe. According to psychologists, the single greatest predictor of happiness and success in life is a healthy love relationship. Yet, although we concede that knowledge is power, most of us have only a rudimentary understanding of what we are in for when we go off in search of true love.
We think we know what love looks like, since we formed pictures of it during childhood. The most common picture is the romantic ideal: when we meet that someone special, we suddenly feel whole, and everything is wonderful. We often feel sexier, funnier, smarter, happier, and more playful. We feel connected to our self, our partner, and the world around us and we live happily ever after. But this connection often slips away, replaced by frustrations, doubt, feelings of disillusionment and a yearning for something more. The best way to describe this disconnection, is that you want your partner to see the world your
way, and to agree with you, and when your partner doesn't, you feel threatened and out of love, and
the relationship begins to take a backseat to life’s other demands.
The good news is love doesn’t have to be this way, Imago Relationship Therapy can help you get your
connection back… and keep it! Even if you are in a relationship and want to grow the love you
already have, Imago Therapy can show you a new way to love, it can deepen your understanding of
yourself… have you ever asked yourself, what is it like to live with me? This type of exploration can
deepen your understanding of your partner. It can help to turn conflict into growth and connection.
Love & Laughter...
