Couples Counselling & Psychotherapy Teddington, Richmond upon Thames

Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy in Teddington and Bushy Park

A Warm Welcome to my Website...

I am Janet Daniel and a qualified, experienced relationship counsellor working in Teddington. I also offer the unique opportunity of 'Walk and Talk' counselling sessions in Bushy Park, believing in the therapeutic value of counselling outdoors in nature.

For the past 25 years I have been helping individuals and couples make a real difference to their lives. I am a registered and senior accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. My approach is warm, friendly, practical and supportive. I have a MSc, a post graduate diploma in counselling and have worked in the NHS, the private, public, and voluntary sectors.

Working with me brings you the benefit of a rich and varied life and career. See 'My Story' page.

I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to make the changes you need to lead a happier and fulfilling life.

I am an integrative therapist, which means that I bring together in a holistic way ideas and ways of working from several schools of psychological thought and clinical practice. This means I pay attention to the many different ways in which human experience is expressed- consciously, unconsciously, physically, emotionally, cognitively, creatively and spiritually in a flexible way, tailoring my approach in response to each unique individual.

How does it work with couples?

Couples often come to counselling as a last resort, when their relationship is in crisis and they are at the point of breaking up. It is never too late to take stock and address the difficulties you are having, but the earlier you come the better the chance of a successful and sustainable outcome. People come because they have been arguing, going round in circles, feeling distanced from their partner emotionally and physically, and intimacy may have ceased. There may be issues around the children. Couples also come because one partner has had an affair. Today's social media and the internet offer more opportunities for sexting affairs and porn addiction, and what one partner sees as harmless, the other may see as betrayal.

I am a trained and experienced relationship counsellor, used to helping couples improve their communication, manage conflict, consider their attachment styles, and explore issues around intimacy. I was a family mediator with Gwent Mediation for many years, helping couples separating or divorcing with issues around their children, finance and property. In the past decade I have done specialised relationship training courses with Juliet Grayson and sex addiction with Paula Hall.

I usually see you and your partner separately first for a session each, when I will take a relationship history. Then we all meet together and agree the focus of our work. Some couples come for a few sessions, others need longer to resolve their issues. If you don't have a partner or your partner won't attend you are still welcome to come alone.

How does it work with individuals?

At the first session we talk about what's brought you at this point in your life for counselling, what your concerns and difficulties are, and the areas of your life you would want to focus our work together.

I invite you to discuss your goals and how you would like to be when therapy ends.

We both sign a working agreement which sets out my duty of care to you, terms of confidentiality, the principles by which we will work together and the practicalities such as when and where we will meet, fees and cancellation costs.

If you travel a lot with work or if it's easier for you to have sessions remotely we can use Skype, Google Meet or Whats App.

I work to the BACP code of ethics and good practice and have regular clinical supervision. Everything shared is confidential unless you or someone else is at risk of serious harm or you are breaking the law.
