Encounter Learning Centre

About us

The Encounter Learning Centre (EncounterLC) is a rich resource-centre for anyone wanting to make sense of relationships.

To us, a relationship is not a problem to be solved; it is an adventure to be embraced and conflict is a sign of growth trying to happen! We understand that we are all wired for connection and that our essence as human beings emerges in connection when we feel safe.

We believe relationships happen neither in one partner nor in the other – but in the space in-between that is being constantly co-created by two or more people. We help people to understand more about this space, the Relational Space, so that they can transform their relationships with their new understanding and skills.
These new understandings and skills will equip you with ways of seeing and being in the relational space, helping you to feel more in control and with more choice in your relationships.

In our work we have integrated aspects of Encounter-centered Couples Therapy (EcCT) developed by Hedy and Yumi Schleifer, IMAGO Relationship Therapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindfulness practises. Our work is also based on an integrative framework of theoretical, philosophical and psychological principles which combine many relational modalities.

We look forward to meeting you!
