Joy Clarke is our Imago Consultant – in her own words:
I love Imago. I’m in love with it, have power struggles with it and grow in conscious relationship with it day by day. I was first attracted when I started reading about a way of understanding relationships that integrated so much of the theory that had enriched my work. My heart took a tumble when I found how Imago wants ME to involve it fully in my own life before I even begin to theorise about it, or learn how to use it to help my clients. I fell utterly in love during our 1st workshop with Hedy and Yumi Schleiffer in 2002. My full passionate commitment was cemented when in training with Jette Simon in 2003 my spirit recognised the spirit of Imago in my being. I got certificated!
I was ripe to fall in love and take on the challenge of a relationship with Imago, having a rich and complex marriage of 23 years, and seeing clearly all the problems my husband needed to fix in himself. Now at our 38th anniversary I feel extremely grateful that he has stayed beside me as I give him a hard time working out my full growth!
Imago, as any well-chosen partner, has not only helped me heal and grow in myself, my marriage and my parenting; it has affirmed what I learnt in my theological studies: that I am born in Shalom, right relationship, with myself (gosh!), with other people on this planet, with creation and with Creator.
Growing in love, my husband, David Mills, and I became Workshop Presenters in 2007 and I travelled to Denmark through 2008 to train as an Imago Consultant. I relish that work! I am now pursuing exploration about the impact of belief systems on our well-being, through the lens of Imago Relationship Theory, using the attachment theory, central to the formation of IRT, and interpersonal-neurobiology with which it is now evolving.
