Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) is one of the best known and most effective approaches to couples counseling.
Created by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt in 1980, Imago Relationship Therapy is based on the concept that we unconsciously try to heal childhood wounds through our romantic relationships. This is a revolutionary therapy that helps couples move from unconscious to conscious patterns of interaction fostering communication and connection. You may already know the work of Dr. Hendrix who wrote the best-selling book Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples (1988).
