I help individuals in conflict learn new ways to listen and talk that will slow down and soften their communication and help them to hear one another. Clients will learn that they don’t have to agree with someone to hear them. In fact, if they agree to disagree, they can often find common ground between their seemingly divergent points of view.
I adapt the couple’s dialogue process of the Imago Relationship Therapy tool kit to the parties in conflict, and as they learn to hear one another, they begin to reframe their conflict as a teaching and learning opportunity.
The goal of this work is to promote and preserve relationships. When the relationship becomes more important than being right, the relationship benefits and both partners win, a double gift!
