Relationship Counselling in North West London and Central London W1
Welcome to my website. My name is Dawn Kaffel and I have been working in private practice as a North West London relationship therapist for over twenty years.
I am a well qualified and highly experienced Couples Counsellor offering relationship counselling for individuals and couples from my practice in West Hampstead and Golders Green, North West London.
In 2016 I added a new location and can now offer couples counselling in Central London from a practice in W1 close to Oxford Circus . I will be working from The Mind Body Practice every Thursday.
As a couples counsellor I offer relationship counselling to same-sex and heterosexual individuals and couples and my clients come from a wide range of different backgrounds, cultures and religions. I offer an impartial and empathic approach in a confidential and caring setting.
I believe that we all want the best relationship we can possibly have but unfortunately we are often left disappointed and let down. Relationship therapy can offer couples an opportunity to discuss and understand more clearly what is not working and help them work towards making changes that will enhance a partnership.
With this in mind I often integrate Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) into my work. This process helps make sense of relationship distress and helps clients understand and change negative patterns into more secure and safe connections. By using a series of steps that were developed by Dr Susan Johnson in Canada, couples learn to reconnect and work towards a stronger emotional bond.
A relationship doesn't need to be in crisis to come for counselling. Having the space to think and reflect on what we want from our lives and relationships with an experienced couples counsellor can really help to clarify and facilitate change.
What is Couples Counselling?
Couples Counselling is for anyone who is having difficulties in their relationship.
Most of us want to have a fulfilling and satisfying relationship with a partner and can become disillusioned and confused when things feel as if they are going wrong.
Counselling provides a safe setting for couples and individuals to discuss the way they feel and behave toward one another, and to look at how their difficulties have arisen. Past histories and current stresses can play a part in undermining communication and creating conflict.
I meet with clients on a weekly basis to help explore and make sense of what is happening in the relationship dynamic. Thinking about change and moving forward is an important process in couples counselling and with my support new ways are found to manage problems and to communicate more effectively.
Who is Counselling for?
Relationship Counselling is for both individuals and couples unhappy or concerned about their relationship with a partner, a member of their family or work colleagues.
Relationship counselling for individuals can be helpful to work on issues such as:
- Difficulty in making and maintaining stable relationships;
- Coping with a loss of a partner through separation, divorce or death;
- Managing a relationship when a partner is unable or unwilling to attend sessions
- Sexual problems
- Anxiety and Depression
