Alison | Imago Relationship Therapist

Relationship Counselling Formby - Liverpool

Hi, I'm Alison, a trained Imago Relationship Therapist and Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist. I welcome couples and individuals for counselling in my practice in Formby near Liverpool in the UK.

Are you always arguing with your other half? Do you long to feel the romance you felt back in the beginning when you first met? Imago couples therapy really works!

Contact me to arrange your first Imago couples therapy session that will change the direction of your relationship from heading to break-up to building a bridge between the two of you. I will help you learn a new way to communicate with each other - it's called the Imago Dialogue technique, first developed by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt in the 1980's.

Hendrix and LaKelly Hunt's theory behind Imago couples therapy is that many people enter into what they call "The Unconscious Marriage" - a marriage that includes all of the hidden desires and automatic behaviours that are left over from childhood and that inexorably lead couples into conflict."

Your partner is not a mind-reader!  Come for Imago couples therapy with me and learn how to feel heard by your partner, as well as how to really listen to your partner, so that they too feel heard by you!  Give your relationship another chance to thrive and feel the love between you once again.

Have you recently got engaged?  Congratulations to you both! Come and see me to learn how to communicate with each other better right from the get-go beginning of your exciting journey together.  

Are you co-parenting children after separating or divorcing from your partner? Imago therapy can also help you to communicate better in this situation which will benefit the rest of your children's lives!

Are you struggling to resolve conflict in other family relationships?  Imago therapy can reunite adult daughters and sons with mothers and fathers before it is too late, or improve difficult relationships between adult siblings. Come and resolve family estrangement and improve the quality of your family relationships too.

Are you and your boss not getting along?  Maybe you and a work colleague are in conflict - Imago therapy can help in these situations too!

Online therapy

Imago couples therapy works just as well online as it does face to face!  All you need is two upright dining chairs, a smartphone or laptop, and the desire to recommit to each other and to do the work!  Leave the rest to me, your Imago Relationship Therapist, and I will help you both every step of the way.

I use the online Zoom or Microsoft Teams platforms and I will send you a link to join me online for your session, wherever you are either in the UK or the rest of the world. You are welcomed into the global Imago community.
