Become an Imago Relationships Therapist

Are you thinking about offering couples therapy but don’t really know where to start? Have you tried working with couples, but at times felt really stuck? Have you studied other approaches but wish to continue to learn and grow as a couples therapist?

When you use the Imago approach, couples often feel much more connected...even after their very first session. The Imago structure can help couples create conscious, loving relationships, and clinicians often find renewed confidence and excitement with couples work!

Full program information, including course description, learning objectives and admission & certification requirements can be found on the Imago Clinical Training program overview page.

About Sophie Slade, PhD

Sophie Slade, PhD, has been deeply involved in the world of Imago since she did her Basic Clinical Training in 1992 with Harville Hendrix. As a workshop presenter since 1996 she has travelled the world giving Imago workshops for couples and singles in French and English. Sophie is a Senior Clinical Instructor on the faculty of the Imago International Training Institute and has been active in creating new courses and re-writing the Imago Clinical Training manual, as well as teaching internationally. In 2014 she received the Harville Hendrix Award for Clinical Excellence and in 2008 the Helen LaKelly Hunt Award for Community Building. People describe Sophie as warm, funny and authentic and say she creates an environment that is safe, respectful and supports personal sharing and learning. Her use of language, metaphor and personal stories brings the concepts to life.

Sophie was born and raised in London, England, and lived in Marseilles, France, for a year as an au pair, before emigrating to Canada at age 19. She soon felt unfulfilled in her original career as a secretary and studied psychology over the course of 18 years, completing her doctorate in 1992 - the topic of her dissertation was couple relationships. During that time she raised two children from her first marriage, divorced, started a relationship with her current husband, David, with whom she has been on her Imago journey for over 30 years, and raised their son together. They have eight grandchildren. Sophie paints, writes poetry and has recently completed a book of short stories.
