You will have an intimate look into Hedy’s innovative combination of techniques, which are used to help couples build and re-build the connections in their relationships. Imago Relationship Therapy, the philosophies of Martin Buber, Appreciative Inquiry, findings from Relational Neurobiology and Hedy’s personal relationship experience, all come together to form the “Tikkun Approach.” Tikkun is Hebrew for the combined concepts of “Healing, Repair, Transformation, and Completion.”

Within the “Relational Therapy for Couples” booklet, Hedy reveals, step-by-step, the renowned “Crossing the Bridge” process which provides a profound “visit” to the world of the partner. Additionally, Hedy describes the processes of the 90/10 formula, fertilization of the relational space, the existential cry for help, the three-legged understanding, and the concept of Relational Maturity.

    Does this describe Hedy’s most recent way of working. I was a facilitator for her recent workshop near London and would love to read more about the changes she looks like she has changed her approach since last years training and workshop.

      Hi Sarah,

      Thank you for your message and your interest in the Tikkun booklet. That document is not recent but does outline the general structure of Hedy’s method. She did just this past year streamline a lot, and the couples workshop that you were at is the new “A Couple’s Journey” workshop that we will no be presenting.

      For some more current documents, I suggest looking through the articles at:

      Also, Hedy is presenting a free webinar on July 27, 2018. That would be the most current information. DO register for that at
