Over the past 70 years this forward thinking institution has done more to pioneer the field of couple and family mental health than any other in the UK or arguably the world.
Our core therapeutic model has been developed over more than 70 years. It combines professional expertise and in-depth theoretical knowledge with research and the training of therapists and is described in the video here.
A number of innovative psychotherapy approaches has stemmed from this core method. These approaches help with a range of relationship difficulties, psychosexual problems, parenting issues, separation and divorce, and are applied to other specialised programmes.
We offer leading practitioners in their field with extensive experience of working with international clients.
Dr Pierre Cachia first joined Tavistock Relationships in 2007 as a trainee on the MA in couple psychotherapy and subsequently undertook doctoral research in the field. Since 2013 he has formed part of the clinical leadership while retaining an active role in training. Over the past seven years he has led the setting up of the Online Couple Psychotherapy Service which he currently heads and supervisees. He is a qualified individual psychotherapist, counselling psychologist, psychoanalytic couple psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. He has contributed to our online CPD training courses with 'Facilitating the Therapeutic Connection in Online Therapy - The Four Domains' and 'Online Therapy: How to Make the Transition to Working Online, and How to Develop Good Practice'.
You can choose to attend with your partner or alone. At this session you’ll have the chance to talk through any concerns and ask any questions about how the counselling process works.
People generally find this initial consultation very helpful.
If you then want to take things forward we’ll agree a time that works, with sessions delivered on a weekly basis. You can read more about the counselling process here.
Clients will need to share information such as whether they have children and certain local medical details. All information is dealt with in confidence and with maximum security.
Psychotherapy delivered by a psychotherapist – A term given to anyone who treats psychological distress through some kind of non-medicine therapy. They don’t have to be psychiatrists or psychologists and often have done long, thorough trainings as at Tavistock Relationships, meeting professional standards. Psychotherapists are often interested in looking deeply into the background of the clients, in order to understand more about how this may be affecting their current problems.
Counselling provided by a counsellor – A title given to anyone who treats emotional or life distress through some kind of non-medicine talking treatment. They tend to be lighter-touch in their approach than psychotherapists, looking at the present issues, and their training tends to be shorter. Anyone can call themself a “counsellor” but Tavistock Relationships has a particular definition, and training that meets specific Professional Body standards.
