Relationship Counselling in North West London and Central London W1
The Effect of Lockdown on the Therapist and the Client
Welcome to my practice. We've all been living with the quite profound changes that COVID-19 and the Government lockdown have made to our lives. For my practice that has meant an expansion of my online and telephone work and a temporary break from face-to-face counselling. It has been encouraging to me to see how new clients receiving counselling for the first time, both online and by phone, have felt pleased that, despite the lockdown, couples counselling was still available at a time when they needed it and how it is helping them. My priority, as always, is to look after my clients and so I will continue working online and by phone for the foreseeable future. Please keep yourselves safe and well and if you would like to make contact with me, please click here to send me an email or give me a call on 07976-403741. With very best wishes, Dawn Kaffel, Couples Counsellor.

I am a well qualified and highly experienced Couples Counsellor offering relationship counselling for individuals and couples from my practice in West Hampstead and North West London. Please click here for more details about my working practice.
I offer couples counselling in Central London from a practice in W1 close to Marylebone High Street. I work from The Mind Body Practice every Thursday.
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 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.
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.
In support of thinking and reflecting, I write regular blogs exploring the different issues that arise in couples' relationships. My new blog discusses"The Effect of Lockdown on the Therapist and the Client ." Please click here to go to my Blog page where you can read more.
"Who would have thought that at the beginning of March when lockdown started and we were all in a state of shock, that three months later we would all still be coming to terms with this global pandemic and the unknown implications for the future.
Rarely before in my 20+ years of working as a therapist have I felt so much similarity and connection with my clients as we all try and navigate around staying safe and well......."
