Together, they are committed to the transformation of relationships and to the evolution of a relational culture. 

They are the co-creators of Imago Relationship Theory & Therapy, which has spread globally through Imago Relationships International, and now renamed Imago Relationships Worldwide, an organization that has trained over 2,500 therapists in over 53 countries.
