About Us

Counselling for couples North London offers a fresh and dynamic approach to couples counselling.

Emotion-focused therapy for couples was pioneered in Canada and is a popular and growing approach in North America. Several research studies have been conducted to evaluate its efficacy, and it has been shown to be "one of the most research supported therapies for couples" (Review of Johnson and Greenberg's Couples Therapy Theory posted on Psychpage post 2002 - see Related links)

Emotion-focused couple therapy works in a structured, purposeful way with feelings, promoting an in depth understanding of why issues arise, and encourages mutual support and empathy in place of conflict and pain.

Rachella Michaels, an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, offers an integrative approach. She comes from a Psychosynthesis training and founded Aurora Psychosynthesis, a one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy service. She has an MA and Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy, and has completed Emotion-focused therapy for couples Level 1. She is registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
