‘Imago Relationship Therapy is not as complex as rocket science, but it is certainly brain science. If couples can understand how and why they trigger their partner and in turn how and why they are triggered by their partner and then get on the same team against their unique pattern of reactivity, then they are well along the road to turning things around in their relationship’. Melissa
Melissa’s focus for her couples work is around facilitating the couple toward an understanding of their unique pattern of reactivity and in managing that reactivity toward minimising pain and increasing pleasure within the dynamic. This allows the couple to transform their relationship, through both growth and healing.
An important part of this is building empathy for self and each other, because when empathy is present, the healing and growth can take place individually and as a couple.
