Family Counselling

Are you often the “mediator” in family conflicts?

Is your partner constantly in conflict with your children?

Do you find yourself in perpetual conflict with your children?

Do you wonder what is going on in your childrens’ heads?

Do you find that you and your partner are in conflict because of your children?

If so then your family would benefit from Imago family counselling.

The Parent Dialogue process will enable you to reflect on your behaviour towards your children from the perspective of your own experience and adaptations as children. This will help you to:-

  • Newly understand the relationship with your children
  • Reflect on your parenting
  • Gain awareness of your unmet childhood needs
  • Distinguish between your child’s reality and your own projection
  • Recognise the impact of the relationship on education.
  • Discover how your behaviour with your children is a reflection of your behaviour towards your parents.

The Family Dialogue process is a tool to air family conflicts that cannot be solved by the parents and the children themselves. It’s goal is to change safety, mood and atmosphere and it’s structure allows for the escalation spiral to be stopped and the situation relaxed; thereby reducing fear, devaluation and uncertainty.

The structure allows each family member to talk to each other in a safe atmosphere on how each individual sees him/herself as well as the family and the relations between them.

Change arises from new perspectives; new perspectives are formed by the reduction of tension and the resulting openness.

The Family Dialogue :-

  • Gives all family members the opportunity to participate and be heard equally.
  • Each family member can present his/her position without fear. This is especially true for children and young people.


  • If you would like to restore connection with members of your family
  • To be able to talk about difficult issues
  • Understand your childrens’ reality
  • Understand how your childhood experiences affect your parenting

Then you will benefit from Imago family counselling!
