Advice for Couples
The question I am asked most often is: "What do you do if your partner doesn’t...(do any imaginable thing)?” or "What if you are married to someone who is...(any imaginable bad trait or behavior)?" In the past, I have responded to these questions with answers addressed to the specifics. As I have listened to my answers, I found that whatever specifics I responded to, the pattern was always the same. The answer was: "Stay in the process." So what is the process? It is Imago Dialogue.

When my friend Melissa’s daughter Anna was about 12, she noticed that her belly was expanding—it looked as though a lifesaver was sitting on top of her hips, gently encircling her body. It was with some alarm that she said to her mother, “Look, Mom—I’m fat!” More

When I was 17 years old, I had a profound, reality-shattering realization: I was simply born in the wrong time and place. I should have been born in Renaissance Italy. To be exact, I should have been in Florence, Italy, circa 1486, the year that Sandro Botticelli painted The Birth of Venus. More

Some relationships make you feel great, while others wipe you out. Judith Orloff shows you how to identify and minimize the effects of the energy vampires in your life. Relationships are always an energy exchange. To stay feeling our best, we must ask ourselves, 'Who gives us energy? Who saps it?'

This probably isn’t surprising, yet when was the last time you consciously added pleasure to your life? When we are relaxed and in the flow, it’s a zillion times easier to access (and send out) our positive emotions. More

The number one question I hear most often from singles is, “How do I overcome my doubt that I will ever find my soulmate?” First, I would ask you to determine if this is a random thought, a random doubt, or if you have a serious “belief” that you will never find your soulmate? It’s important to make this distinction. As human beings, it’s normal to have occasional doubts, but if your core belief is that you won’t find your soulmate, this is something that you need to overcome. More

On Mothering by Sil Reynolds More
Carol: How did you come to create Imago Relationship Therapy together? Did it happen because of your relationship or along with it? Helen: On one of our first dates, Harville told me he wanted to write a book about why couples fight. He was exploring why couples who are drawn together and think they’re in love end up being each other’s worst enemies. We were both divorced, and I was mesmerized by the idea. The answer to this question is so important and significant for our well-being. More
