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 discusses whether long distance relationships can work for couples. What prompted my considering this topic has been my experience since the start of the new year. It has been noticeable how many more clients are requesting counselling sessions via three- way Skype (the couple are in two different places) or trying to arrange face-to-face sessions weeks in advance for the few hours or days that they know they are going to be together. There are many reasons why couples find themselves in long distance relationships and it appears that the geographical distance is often seen as the reason why these relationships can be so problematic, please click here if you would like to read it or here to go to my blog page.
'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect
couple learns to enjoy their differences.
