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 and an internationally recognised centre for couples counselling and psychotherapy, training and research.
In addition to my private practice, Elle Sidel Therapy in London, I am a Visiting Clinician at Tavistock Relationships where I currently work in the dedicated Online Service. Prior to lockdown, I worked as a Senior Therapist in the General Counselling and Psychotherapy Service and the Parenting Consultation Service Team, which provides specialist support for individuals and couples seeking a confidential space to make sense of the challenges that caring for children can present to maintaining satisfying adult relationships.
I have completed an MA in Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy and I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Individual and Couples Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (Tavistock Relationships/University of East London). I also hold a PhD from Cornell University (1998). I have completed further professional training, including for the Online Service and the Divorce and Separation Counselling Service at Tavistock Relationships.
I am a Member of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, a Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust Alumni, and a Supporting Member of the International Psychotherapy Institute (U.S.A.).
I am a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I adhere to their professional code and ethical guidelines.
