A former Roman Catholic priest, John Sullivan was a high school teacher, coach, and counsellor at St. Clair College where he also served as the head coach of the St. Clair College Saints hockey team. After leaving the priesthood, he married his wife Crystal, and they spent six years in Zambia, Central Africa. After returning to Canada, John went back to work at St. Claire as a counsellor and professor while completing his Masters of Counselling Psychology.Then after 15 years of marriage, he and his wife separated. It was over.
At that point, Harville Hendrix and Imago Relationship Therapy entered their lives, and here they are celebrating their 42nd anniversary this year. Dr. Hendrix personally trained John as both a clinical therapist and as a Getting the Love You Want workshop presenter, and has been giving workshops and seeing clients around the States and Canada for the past twenty-seven years.“I prefer the term coach, to therapist or counsellor, as the connotation around those words is that there is something wrong with the person; whereas, as a coach, there is nothing wrong with my players, but sometimes what they are doing is not working. I believe the same is true of relationships.”All sports use systems and teach skills.
The system John teaches is Imago relationship therapy along with four basic skills that can help anyone create a great relationship. The system and skills apply whether couples are just beginning a relationship, wanting to improve an existing relationship or are in a second or third partnership. They can work for you as well.
