Relationships are an essential part of our lives, from family and friends to partners and spouses. We have a natural tendency to develop intimate and intense relationships with a few select individuals, which can bring joy and happiness. Difficulties in relationships are one of the most common causes of unhappiness, and often brings people into therapy.
The reasons for seeking relationship therapy include:
Couples and individuals of all sexual orientations can benefit from Relationship-Therapy
Seeking therapy as a couple offers the opportunity to air hurt and angry feelings in a safe and controlled setting. Relationships can become "gridlocked", repeating destructive patterns. The insights offered in relationship therapy can free couples from a negative dynamic and establish new, positive modes of relating.
Many people choose to seek relationship therapy without a partner. Individual relationship therapy is often sought by those experiencing difficulties in coping with a break up, or who are undecided whether to continue in a relationship. It can also be useful for those who want to explore the absence of lasting intimate relationships. Relationship therapy can help you to discover how you relate to others and why you are drawn to particular people.
Having originally graduated in education and child psychology, I first became interested in relationship psychotherapy through work with emotionally vulnerable children and their parents.
I initially trained in Psychodynamic Couple Psychotherapy at London Marriage Guidance.
I then continued my Psychotherapy studies at Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (formerly Tavistock Institute of Marital Psychology), where I gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Marital and Couple Therapy.
I am committed to Continuous Professional Development and I attend conferences, research presentations and training days regularly, to keep up to date with new developments in the field.
I am an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their code of ethics. I am committed to working for the client's best interest: practicing confidentiality, having a transparent working contract and promoting the clients' right to make their own decisions.
I am also a fully licensed relate therapist, please see www.relate.org.uk for more details.
I am also a fluent Russian speaker.
