Can Conflict Lead to Intimacy?

Young couple resting in each others arms Contact Us Now! Intimacy Needs Safety

If conflict is not handled safely in a relationship, you may feel like you can’t open up and share what you really think, because it’s just too risky.

You may feel defensive, closed, and on your guard around each other. And as a result, misunderstandings multiply and your conflicts get worse, not better.

Arguing is a Symptom

When this happens it’s easy to blame the symptoms – the arguments about differences that naturally occur in any relationship – instead of the cause – a lack of safe communication.

Imago Provides Safety

Imago Therapy teaches you how to better communicate during conflicts, so that your disagreements actually become opportunities for greater intimacy, as you learn about each other.

When the two of you can truly open up and share how you feel without feeling afraid, you feel heard and understood, the fun of exploring your relationship returns, and your conflicts are much easier to resolve.

Don’t Wait ...

Call or email us today to learn how Imago Therapy can restore intimacy!
