Here you are, considering whether therapy might be for you, personally, or perhaps for you and your partner in life. Understandably, you will also be concerned to find a therapist who can meet your needs. This can sometimes seem quite a tall order and I hope that you will find the information provided here helpful.
I am qualified and experienced working with individuals and couples and if you are unsure whether to begin therapy on your own or with a partner, we can explore this together.
Psychotherapy and Counselling with Elle Sidel MBACP (Reg)
There are many reasons for seeking help. You may need a safe space to work through a specific problem or sudden change in your personal life or in a significant relationship. Or you may be concerned with difficult dynamics, destructive patterns and their impact upon your personal well-being and, perhaps, the quality of your relationships, including the parenting of children. Sometimes it is the concern for children and how they may be affected when their adults experience difficulties that prompt couples and individuals to turn to therapy for support.
Each individual and couple is, of course, unique and so is the purpose of each therapy. Therefore, I recommend at least one initial consultation for us to discuss together your particular concerns and the kind of support you may need at this time. If we decide that we want to work together, I can help you address a wide range of issues that may affect how you deal with life’s challenges and opportunities, in yourself and in your relationships:
Areas I work with:
- difficulties communicating
- lack of intimacy
- life transitions
- relationship issues
- recurring conflict
I offer relationship counselling for couples, individual partners and singles.
