Testimonials

“Imago Couples Therapy is the most effective model for understanding relationships.  It works!”

Pat Love, EdD Author of “The Truth about Love” and “Hot Monogamy”


“Before undertaking the Imago training, I didn’t have the confidence to work with couples, despite my training.  I no longer feel that I am acting as referee, arbitrator or ‘fixer’ - but instead I really love the deep connection and breakthroughs couples make when they feel safe enough to learn to listen deeply to themselves and each other “

Sue McEvoyImago Therapist


“I feel that I am in extremely capable, competent hands. Sophie demonstrates mastery and confidence in a way that invites, motivates and includes. I leave here feeling confident to sit in a session with a couple in a completely new way.”

FP, London Imago Therapist

Facilitator Training

For those of you who are interested in Imago, but hold no formal clinical qualification, may wish to train as an Imago Facilitator.
This training will help people such as business owners and managers, team leaders, health care workers, educators, clergy, coaches and others deepen their own personal understanding of Imago theory and practice so that they can bring the relationship skills and knowledge into their own area of expertise.  This four module training focuses on working one on one, with dyads, with groups and families and in organizations.  It is a training for people who have personally experienced the power and potential of Imago and want to apply it outside of the area of couples therapy.

As an Imago Facilitator you will develop the skills to help participants deepen their understanding and practice of Imago so they can integrate into their personal and professional lives.
