My specialty is Imago Relationship Therapy, which is based on the premise that childhood experiences form an unconscious image or imago that play a powerful role in the mate selection process. The understanding that we are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship and we are healed in relationship forms the underlying belief of Imago relationship therapy.

Imago Relationship Therapy helps couples learn how to heal rather than to hurt by becoming conscious of the childhood wounds that influence patterns of behaviour and perception. Single persons also find this beneficial in assisting them in preparation for a healthy committed relationship.

It is based on the books Getting the Love you Want, and Keeping the Love you Find, by Dr. Harville Hendrix, and Giving the Love that Heals and Receiving Love by Harville hendrix and Helen Lakelly Hunt. You can consult the Imago Relationships web site to learn more.


My approach is also based on the Integrative Psychotherapy theoretical framework. Thus I believe that a quality relationship between the therapist and the client is the most essential aspect to change and problem solving.

The term "integrative" of Integrative Psychotherapy has a number of meanings. It refers to the process of integrating the personality: taking disowned, unaware, or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality, reducing the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit spontaneity and limit flexibility in problem solving, health maintenance, and relating to people, and re-engaging the world with full contact. It is the process of making whole. For more information about Integrative Psychoterapy, visit this site.
