Imago Therapy heals Anxiety, PTSD & many Psychological problems in addition to Relationship issues
Imago Therapy heals communication problems, and individual issues can also be addressed with needs explained and understood clearly and lovingly.
Rather than talking about strategies for traumatised persons to communicate or manage significant relationships, the ‘significant other’ is invited to attend the counselling so as to “assist the traumatised / anxious / depressed person’s recovery process”.
- In-session activities create new habits and ways of communicating, thus you both get to practice really listening, acknowledging, clarifying meaning and empathising. Yes, we do ourself out of a job very quickly 🙂
- A safe experience of communicating and gaining a deeper understanding with your significant other has a powerful healing benefit, plus you both learn the process to take home!
- Imago Therapy heals Anxiety, PTSD & many Psychological problems by coaching and empowering you both to create this safety in the home environment acknowledging that the home and safety are major components of a recovering person’s life.
- The difficulties or conflicts that clients traditionally avoid dealing with are dealt with in this safe manner with the counsellor holding both parties in safety.
- Trust, control, predictability and of course, safety, are the foundations to trauma recovery and are the focus of the IMAGO process – all of which is taught to you both for use at home.
- The facilitation of such a safe environment and communication processes has been highly effective in assisting trauma recovery… both with couples and the significant mother and daughter / son relationships!
- There is plenty more evidence of how Imago Therapy heals Anxiety, PTSD & many Psychological problems
Herman (1992): Healing occurs in ‘relationship’. Imago is powerful for what Herman describes as “complex, long-term PTSD”…… The sooner you get help, the less complicated it becomes.

- Dialogue slows down communication:- Yourself and others truly hear what is being expressed; validate and empathise so as to discover new or deeper understandings of situations, reactions and problems.
- Amazing clarification, insight and emotional healing !
- SOLUTIONS and improvements become obvious and you will hear your partner suggest the changes that you need from them.
- Skills are learned to create the safe dialogues to give each person a voice! – to have needs heard.
- You learn great conflict management methods, thus create relationships and home environments that heal.
- There have been so many examples of how Imago Therapy heals Anxiety, PTSD & many Psychological problems.
- E.G., Trauma Healing Group members: watched a mature mother and daughter in the group & gained insight into their own lives and the dynamics they wrestled with. The groups generally are especially important for isolated and alienated persons, however that particular group experienced some healing just by sharing the experience with the mother and daughter. Those whose mothers had passed on, or were distant geographically or emotionally – were able to speak at a level which could not be achieved with their own mothers.
As Judith Lewis Herman states:
“Recovery can take place only within the context of relationships; it cannot occur in isolation.” (1992, p. 133)
Costs are negotiable but no more than you would have to pay even with Medicare rebates or Health lnsurance.

Imagine having your FAMILY understand what is happening to you currently! 🙂
With my rural background, it’s been my passion to provide this service, and now is the perfect opportunity.
Currently, I do all my counselling online, started by covid – but we found that it actually works better in some ways – which I was surprised about.
- So now I’m offering an Online International English-speaking Counselling Service for rural, remote & world-wide, as well as city people while I’m overseas.
- My time zone is currently UTC or GMT so look up how many hours behind or ahead you are 🙂
- We use Skype or Zoom or Facebook Messenger video which had to be the case due to covid in Australia.
So to keep healthy and working, I had to do online like many people who don’t have time to get sick because already there’s not enough workers/professionals to meet need.
As a specialist in EMDR, PTSS & Relationships, I assure you a high standard of effectiveness. Please see also https://broadening-horizons.com.au/emdr-therapy-perth-hills/ .
- Couples or other significant others are still face to face in the online method due to how the Imago Relationship Therapy process works
Like a bystander tennis coach, I guide both clients through the process as if I was far away like I am, but actually closer with us all on screen within focussed sight.
The important thing is for both to look at each other, not me that much 🙂 🙂 Of course you can face me to start with, and as necessary 🙂
- Will email an Internationally fee-free BSB & Account to pay for books or Consultations to people residing outside Australia 🙂
