Martha Nyman is a Psychodynamic Couples Psychotherapist who has extensive experience of working with both couples and individuals on a wide range of relationship issues. Psychodynamic therapy involves exploring the issues that have brought a couple or individual to therapy whilst thinking about what that may lie behind them and make them difficult to resolve.
She also has a particular interest in Mentalization-Based therapies for couples in conflict and separated parents who find it difficult to work together over issues relating to their children. This approach involves short-term work over a fixed number of sessions which seeks to focus on reducing the conflict which may inhibit developing and maintaining healthy and co-operative relationships.
Her clinical training was at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relations where, alongside her private practice, she continues to work as a Visiting Clinician, an assessor, as part of the Mentalization-Based Treatment for Couples service and as part of the DWP-funded Parents in Dispute project.
Her qualifications are a Postgraduate Diploma in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy and an MSC in The Psychodynamics of Human Development from the British Asssociation of Psychotherapists and Birkbeck University. She is a full member or the BSCPC and a registered member of the BACP.
