Relationship Counselling in North West London and Central London W1
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. Please click here for more details about my working practice.
In 2016 I added a new location and I 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.
In support of thinking and reflecting, I write occasional blogs that discuss different issues that arise in couples' relationships. My most recent blog considers the possible issues between couples where there is an age gap of over 15 years. Traditionally these relationships have been the subject of many clichés – ‘It’s a mid-life crisis’, ‘toy boy’, ‘old enough to be your mother/father’, she’s/he's only after her/his money’. Now, due to more celebrity relationships being in the public eye, age gap relationships are more common and acceptable and not always regarded as negative and suspicious! Before beginning a relationship with someone much younger or older it’s important to consider your motivations. Please click here if you would like to read more or here to go to my blog page.
