Elisabeth Marriner, Individual, Relationship and Sex therapist,
I am a qualified, experienced, individual and couple psychotherapist with specialist training 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.
My private practice is in a quiet, discreet and comfortable private practice room in Studland Street, Ravenscourt Park and SW7
I offer a safe place to think about what's been happening 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.
An initial consultation for couple workis an opportunity for us to explore current difficulties, the history of your relationship and wider family issues on both sides as well as finding out about you as individuals. This will include your extended family histories and early experiences. This helps understanding underlying dynamics and improves communication between you.
I offer regular weekly 50 minute sessions. Sometimes things can feel easier after a few sessions and sometimes it can take a few months work.
