Couples Counselling Practice Counselling for Couples and Individuals with Dawn Kaffel
West Hampstead in North West London and Central London W1

Relationship Counselling in North West London, Central London W1 and online

My name is Dawn Kaffel, welcome to my practice. I have been working in private practice in Hampstead and Central London as a relationship therapist and counsellor for over twenty years.

I am a well qualified and highly experienced Couples Counsellor offering relationship counselling for couples and individuals. Prior to the pandemic I was working online and from my practices in West Hampstead and North West London. I hope to return to working with clients face to face in Central London from a practice in W1 close to Marylebone High Street at some date in the future. For more information about online counselling please click here and, for more details about my general working practice, please click here.

I offer couples and 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 take an impartial and empathic approach in a confidential and caring setting.

I believe we all want the best relationship we can possibly have but we are, unfortunately, 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. Please click here to see a short video of Dr Johnson speaking about EFT.

A relationship doesn't need to be in crisis to for you 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.


ANXIETY is the theme of this year's Mental Health Awareness Week (15-21 May 2023). As we try to navigate our lives and relationships in an increasingly changing world, our mental wellbeing is constantly being tested. This has led to a huge increase in anxiety: the UK’s most common mental health disorder.

All of us can feel anxious at various times in our lives and, as a couple therapist, anxiety shows up in my counselling room in many different guises.

So many things cause anxiety in relationships. It means different things to different people. It’s not uncommon for anxiety to have a profound impact on the quality of your life and the life of your relationship.
