35 Years Experience

Dr Judith Zur is a highly specialist clinical psychologist and Marital/Family therapist and Social Anthropologist with over thirty years’ experience of providing psychological and counselling interventions, consultation and supervision in the NHS and non-statutory settings in the UK and abroad. She is a caring and professional person experienced working successfully with individuals of all ages, couples and families on a wide range of issues both in her private consultation room and online. She is a chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society who is registered with and works according to the ethics of the Health and Care Professions Council. UK Council for Psychotherapy and the Association of Family Therapy.

Judith´s therapeutic approach is collaborative, empathic and person/couple-centred. She formulates individually tailored treatment plans, taking into account each individual's presenting difficulties, treatment choice and the evidence base for psychological therapies. She provides a safe non judgemental therapeutic space and support clients in making the changes that they wish to make. It is not easy to seek therapy and often people feel anxious and fear being judged when they meet for the first time so she is careful to put people at their ease. With her people achieve sustainable personal improvement and growth individually, rekindles connections and problem solves within couple relationships, family and/or other relationships removing blame and judgment replacing this with the power of responsibility and tools to promote change.

Judith´s therapeutic approaches include working in the present here and now and bringing in the past as relevant context to achieve understanding and change. Her style and the tools used are adapted to every individual and couple depending upon their wishes and therapeutic needs. Because of her extensive training and experience she 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.

PROCESS OF WORKING WITH YOU:
Judith´s work begins with you (if you come as an individual or each of you, if you come as a couple/family) with the issues you would like to address and learning what best outcome of our work together would look like for you. During the first session you can get a sense of Judith and decide whether working together with me we can make the changes you long for. It is up to you to decide whether you wish to continue after the initial session. If you decide to continue we will work together helping you find new ways of moving in the direction that you want to go. She endeavours to understand the perspective of couples (and other relationships) helping you relate to one another so you feel heard, validated and begin to communicate in a way that increases connection, diminishes conflict and strengthens your bonds. Judith helps families understand most problems with their children and adolescents in the context of the family, generational patterns including culture; She assists parents in acquiring more effective ways of communicating with their children and with parenting styles. Change with couple and families will happen in the present during sessions creating corrective emotional experiences of connection which is an antidote to negative patterns. She often set tasks between sessions so that the process of therapy is a continuous one.

LANGUAGES AND MODES OF DELIVERY:
Judith offers therapy and counselling in English or Spanish for individuals and couples of all ages and of all cultures and gender orientations both face to face and online, by video (via skype and Facetime) and phone and thus works with people nationally and internationally. This is not a type of therapy but a way of delivering it which is especially accessible if you are very busy, travel a lot or for one reason or another find it hard to leave your house/office. She has worked online for many years with individuals and couples and have found this mode of delivery to be equally effective as face to face despite the loss of physical proximity.  If you have not tried this mode before why not try one session and see if it is to your liking. You are not obliged to continue, the decision to do so is always yours.

FEEDBACK EXAMPLES:
Below is some anonymous feedback from clients which you might find helpful:

1. "Insightful, compassionate, and creative, Judith Zur is a wonderful therapist. I worked with her for about a year and a half, and she helped me more than any other therapist I've seen in my life.  I did both individual sessions with her, focusing on childhood and family trauma, and couples sessions with my partner.  These are areas in which I think Judith is especially skilled.
We focused at first on my family and childhood issues, and she helped me to understand my past experiences in a new way that helps me to release the blame, guilt and shame that were plaguing me. We examined how those issues affected me in my present day, and how I could change my patterns and responses to triggers. This has helped me immensely. Before, I went through life with so many toxic emotions surrounding self-esteem and not feeling loved.   Judith helped me to see the old beliefs and how they played out in my life better than any book I've read, any workshop I've attended, or any other therapist.
The couples sessions saved my relationship with my partner. Neither of us had experienced healthy home lives and had no model to emulate. She helped us so much communicate more effectively. I feel so very happy and grateful to be in a healthy relationship, and a large part of that is the therapy we went to.
Overall, I highly recommend Judith as a therapist. She is truly a gifted healer."

2. "Dr. Zur is just wonderful. When I was in my darkest times she helped pull me out. She was very patient and understanding. She gave me wonderful advice to help resolve my current situations. I felt that she truly cared about my well being. You can tell she is very well educated with lots of experience and was willing to try different techniques that would personally work for me. I would definitely recommend her!!"

3. "Thanks to Dr. Zur, I am a firm believer in the power of counseling, even if there aren't any immediate issues requiring resolution. Dr. Zur challenged us to continually improve our communication skills, and create goals - both personal and as a couple."

4. "Dr. Zur was extremely caring during our conversation. She genuinely wanted to help and was very resourceful. Thank you for being on top of my needs and for your professionalism. I highly recommend you."

5. "Simply stated, counseling with Dr. Zur is very good. She brings knowledge and experience to the table, and inspires those around her to become better partners and people themselves. My wife and I are very grateful to have worked with Dr. Zur and continue to this day to implement the many concepts which she empowered us with."

5. "We are a cross cultural couple and came to Dr. Zur with issues of anger, frustration and lack of communication that escalated to physical and verbal abuse. through therapy with Dr. Zur we learned to understand each other better, be empathic and acquired tools to communicate and deal with conflict better. We felt very comfortable with her style and neutrality. Before our first session, I was very skeptical of going to yet another therapist. But I meet her, I saw warmth, like a spark in her face, that and your smile helped me to connect and open up. We have recommended Dr. Zur many times as she helped us so much. Our children are happier too because there is a different energy in our home.
We are very thankful that when we had issues that we considered urgent, she took the time to listen to us and usually it was not the clock regulating the length (or number) of our sessions but more a human component."

6. "Judith Zur has been a great support to me during a time when I was dealing with depression and addiction—issues that went way back, with roots in my childhood, but she was the first to connect my past with my present and now my future.  Judith has given me the tools to handle my problems in a less destructive way: to face what’s hard in life with self-knowledge and kindness to myself, and understanding.  I loved our sessions—I felt like I could say anything to her and her feedback was always informative and helpful.  Also, I know she’s a resource that I can rely on in the future, even though I’m now feeling very well and more confident and optimistic than I have felt for some time".
