Elle Sidel BA (Hons.), PhD, PgDip, MA
There are many reasons for seeking therapy. 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 or destructive patterns and their impact upon your personal well-being and perhaps upon the quality of your relationships.
Each individual and couple is, of course, unique and so is the purpose of each therapy. I can help you address a wide range of issues that may affect how you experience and manage life's challenges and opportunities, in yourself and in your relationships. To this end, I recommend one or more initial consultations for us to discuss together your particular concerns and the kind of support you may need at this time.
I am a qualified and experienced couple and individual psychotherapist. I completed my specialist training at Tavistock Relationships, a unit of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, where I work as a Visiting Clinician. I am also an experienced online therapist, having trained and continued to work at Tavistock Relationships Online Service.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy for couples, individual partners and singles, including online, and I welcome diversity in my practice.
I can work with you on an open-ended, long-term basis, but I can also undertake time-limited work where appropriate.
In my private practice, I see clients in the City and in Mayfair. In these uncertain times, I have also expanded my online clinical practice and I welcome new enquiries. You can contact me by email or telephone me for more details or to arrange an initial consultation.
