couples & imago couple therapy

"Sometimes we get out of tune or out of step with one another, the relationship then immediately reflects this disharmony."

Is it difficult for you to overcome the invisible barrier between the two of you, is there so much grid in the gears that you don't know where to start, because you don't even know exactly what it is ..  Does the veil make you tired, irritated and helpless?   Do you feel trapped in a doom loop and consider a way out of the relationship just to get rid of this heaviness and the bad feelings.. Do you still find each other attractive, do you still really feel and see each other.. ?

But there are still feelings, the old longing, the bonds and the belonging together, your friends and family. You may think that changing your partner is not going to solve everything. And there is still the belief that this family stands for strength, is the backbone of your life so there must be some kind of a solution and you just have to change something in the channel you're stuck in …

Maybe you are about to get a baby. This will change your relationship and you want it to change in a good way and get support in reflecting and reorganizing your relationship, preparing the ground for your baby and preparing new ways of living and nurturing your couple's life before everything moves too fast  ..

Let me help you on your 1st step towards more connection:
The 12 weeks program "Couplehood - a new way to love" Group or Individual in Vienna
(6 evening sessions of 2 hours + individual couple sessions in English, German or French)

This program helps couples learn the skills necessary to realize their relationship potential: consider what your relationship needs from you as individuals rather than what you need from your relationship. You will learn how to listen, mirror and validate your partner and learn new things about your partner. This program is not focused on problems but creates the basis for deeper listening and understanding. It does NOT correspond to the Imago Couples Workshop.
Message from the creators of the program Harville Hendrix & Helen LaKelly Hunt: "Did you know that there is a purpose to love and conflict? If you want to feel more connected with your partner, there is a way to create the relationship of your dreams. This program combines real-life examples with simple exercises to give you the tools you need to transform your relationship. We wish you the best on your journey to create a deeper love of and for your partner – so that together you may build a life filled with joy and connection."

For one human being to love another human being; that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Couplehood - a new way to love is based on the book:

2nd step: book individual Imago Couple Sessions with me to address more difficult issues in your partnership like untangling the power struggle, forgiving, etc.

I can provide a neutral and safe structure for you to slow down your daily automatisms and habits, to unknot entanglements and patterns, blind spots in your couple's life, to reflect the mystery of the space between you, that is why you got attracted to one another in the first place and to find new perspectives on another level than on the one of the power struggle -  the one of true dialogue, deep listening, mirroring and validating.

In this role I can be your mirror, interpreter, facilitator and support you in getting to feel and see the hidden, unspoken, implicit ambivalences, feelings, needs, the concealed longing that your partner seams unable to fulfill.

Having found the words for them, sometimes so difficult to express, the solutions get more obvious and the growth edge in your couple - where you found yourselves in a stuck state - can be surmounted. The road is then free for you to find a way together, a rhythm, a successful future, deep understanding, affection and erotism in a mature relationship.

Take your time together and cocreate the basis for a happy future - this will liberate a lot of energ to enjoy life to the full ! Time for a change means it is not time for change and slow down to take the time it needs to change in a safe environment.
