Clinical Training Program in Imago Relationship Therapy

For psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, marriage and family therapists seeking expertise in couples’ therapy

The training will be delivered by Ian Tomlinson, Imago Advanced Clinician and Workshop Presenter.

Training schedule

The training program consists of three modules of 4 days each, 9.00am to 5.30pm, followed by 6 months of clinical supervision to a required level of competence for certification. The modules must be attended in sequence.

If you are unsure of how to work effectively with couples then this is the course for you.

By the end of this Couples Counselling Training you will be confident to work with any couple that walks through your door and you will give the couples that work with you a positive, life changing experience that moves them towards connection and growth.

Why would I train in Imago Relationship Therapy, especially given that it appears more expensive than some other trainings?
