Elisabeth Marriner Individual, Relationship and Sex Therapist
I am a qualified, experienced, individual and specialist couple psychotherapist. I also hold an MSc in psychosexual therapy. I work in private practice and as a visiting couple and psychosexual clinician at Tavistock Relationships. Do feel free to call me for a brief chat about your particular situation. The therapy I offer is based on regular, weekly sessions.
My private practice is in a quiet, discreet and comfortable private practice room in Studland Street, Ravenscourt Park and also in Cornwall Gardens, SW7
I offer a safe place to think about what's been troubling you and in your relationship with a view to improved understanding, sexual intimacy and communication.
I have wide experience working with heterosexual and same sex couples from a range of ethnic and religious backgrounds. I work with issues associated with managing the effects of bereavement and traumatic events, the impact of affairs, conflict and anger management, separation and divorce, parenting/step parenting difficulties.
I work with a range of sexual difficulties including loss of desire, painful sex, erectile and ejaculation difficulties, impact of menopause on sexual relationship, orgasm difficulties.
All work is confidential and subject to the strict ethical guidelines of FPC, BACP, COSRT and Tavistock Alumni which includes continual professional development.
An initial consultation for couple work is an opportunity for us to explore current difficulties, We look at the history of your relationship and wider family issues on both sides as well as finding out about you as individuals. I take a close look at your separate family histories and early experiences to help make sense of what you are currently struggling with together. Couple dynamics, such as communication difficulties, are often influenced by past experiences.
I offer regular weekly 50 minute sessions. Sometimes things can feel easier after a few sessions and sometimes it can take a bit longer.
