'Getting The Love You Want' Couples Workshop - in person and on-line

A transformative experience for couples developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., & Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. presented by Sophie Slade Ph.D. and David Howarth.  

All couples are welcome!  Imago is committed to inclusiveness and non-discrimination.

Help your relationship reach its fullest potential!  

Whether you’ve just fallen in love, are looking to restore your romance, or are in chronic conflict, this workshop is for you.


During the workshop you and your partner will learn a new way to talk and listen that will help you:

  • Discover each other in a new way.
  • Grow into meeting each others' relational needs in safe ways while expanding yourself.
  • Deepen and sustain a joyful connection.
  • Acquire essential information and skills to help make your relationship successful and lasting, or to figure out if you want to be together;
  • Develop a fresh understanding of the “exquisite perfection of the fit” between you in areas of greatest conflict;
  • Transform your conflicts into opportunities for growth and healing
  • Meet the chimp and turtle who can take over your relationship
  • Realize you are not alone on this human journey.
  • And oh, so much more to create the relationship you want!


Personal work is done with your partner.  This is an educational experience for couples, NOT group therapy. The workshop includes short lectures, written exercises, live demonstrations and practice sessions between partners. You share only with your partner with the support of facilitators, if needed.

“So simple, practical and produces results. Our lives have been enriched and transformed by this process”

“Sophie has the gift of love and dedication in her way of presenting, explaining, respecting."

“Sophie and David are a tangible example of Imago at work in real relationships. It was very inspiring”

“Highly recommended - I can now see that incompatibility with your partner is not necessarily a recipe for disaster, but for a successful life-long partnership”

“Having had a couple of half- hearted attempts at relationship counselling which I couldn’t buy into, the Imago approach was a ‘breath of fresh air’"

"This workshop enabled me to see my partner through new, enriched eyes”

”Extraordinary course, with exercises which changed our relationship immediately…”
