RICHARD LAHEY JAMES
Richard is a family therapist primarily working with couples and families. The typical human life cycle includes many challenging phases including (for example); dating, break ups and singleness, partnering and marriage, having children or not, raising teens, letting go, loss and illness, divorce, middle and older age, retirement and death. Each phase requires significant adjustments. If we fail to adjust and adapt at every twist and turn in life, significant difficulties may arise for ourselves and those closest to us. Richard offers assistance in looking at these challenges, within the context of family, to help you make the most of your life and relationships. Many of life's challenges come in the form of relationship difficulties and these tricky relationships can be understood and adjusted, often in conversation with the significant others.
If for any reason Richard can not see you himself he will endeavour to make the best recommendation he can to other competent colleagues within the London area.
Richard's qualifications and registrations include: MSc in family therapy, Dip integrative counselling, Cert sex therapy, Cert counselling supervision. Member of the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice, the Association of Christian Counsellors, the Institute of Family Therapy, and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. Richard also has a private practice in south London.
Elke values that everybody is unique and therefore tailors her approach to address her client's issues, big or small, which may cause them difficulties or distress. Being trained in an integrative way (Diploma level 5) she uses different techniques and approaches to look at the past, present or future to help her client get better or achieve their goals. Depending on the issues, this can be brief solution focused or can entail deeper and longer work.
