Dr Judith ZurFamily/Systemic psychologist
I am a warm, caring and professional person with 35 years of experience working successfully with individuals of all ages, couples and families on a wide range of issues. I am a Clinical Psychologist and Marital/Family Therapist trained in a range of therapeutic techniques and ideas; this enables me to work successfully with a wide range of problems with different ages and individuals and groups. I also consider a person's difficulties from a number of perspectives and to offer therapy based on a person's needs and preferences and on current research evidence. I have worked within the NHS with individuals of all ages, couples and families, with NGOs in the UK and abroad and privately both in my consultation room and online. I am also a Social Anthropologist and a specialist in cultural issues. I am registered and work according to the professional ethics of the BPS, UKCP, HCPC & AFT).
My practice offers you a safe, non-judgmental climate to discuss and explore your issues. Many of us suffer from varying degrees of distress and challenging relationships at some point in our lives and making the decision to seek help can be difficult. I therefore endeavor to try to put people at their ease and help them to see that deciding to seek professional help is a strength and an opportunity. Whatever you bring to counseling (as individuals/couples and family members) will be received with total acceptance and my own genuine desire to work together with you to create the changes you require. I take a compassionate and non blaming stance which is essential for positive change.
My therapeutic approaches include working in the present here and now and bringing in the past as relevant context to achieve understanding and change. My style and the tools I use are adapted to every individual and couple depending upon their wishes and therapeutic needs. Because I have extensive training and experience I can draw on elements of a wide range of research-based approaches to create the best therapy program for each individual/couple/family rather than being limited to any one particular method of therapy.
