Getting the Love You Want - Couples Weekend Workshop
Imagine a whole weekend of conversations with your partner about the things you have been longing to connect around. Experience safe, connecting and supportive conversations which bring back love and tenderness.
Many Imago therapists recommend attending a workshop early on in your therapy. Many couples find that even though the workshop experience on its own is great, they get even more out of it by some follow-up from a therapist. Getting the Love You Wants workshop along with continued, supportive therapy together is the strongest foundation to restore your connection

Relationship Apps are based on sound and proven principles of couples therapy — express what you feel and need, stay positive, respect each other and have fun together. By promoting these good relationship habits, these apps can at least point you in the right direction. You’ll know they’re working if you find yourself gazing less at your phones and deeper into each other’s eyes.
1) Open-Ended Questions - The questions are supposed to get partners talking about issues that are important to them, such as career and family goals, as a way to help them learn more about each other.
2) Expressing Needs – This app helps couples to identify and express some of their wants — without complaining. Designed to be used when the couple is together and can see each other’s faces and body language, these apps aim to start important conversations.
3) Kahnoodle - “It’s all about positive affirmation,” says Kahnoodle founder Zahairah Scott Washington. “If ‘thoughtful acts’ rank high on her ‘love signs’ and she recognizes his thoughtful act,” Washington explains, “the couple’s love tank will fill up fast.” Either partner can also spot when it’s running low and take action.
4) Fix a Fight – This app helps couples deal with the inevitable conflicts in any relationship. Creator Mark McGonigle, a Gottman-trained therapist and owner of MindWise apps, relies on humor and mutual understanding to guide couples through defusing conflict.
5) Kindu – This app is only about sex. Want to share your hottest longings without being thought of as weird or disgusting? Pick from a large erotic menu of acts and acting out, and the app will reveal them to your partner only when you score a match. So if you’re afraid to tell him you adore being tied up, he’ll never know—unless that turns him on too.
