Cedric Bouet-Willaumez, Harley Street psychotherapist, workshop leader at the annual conference of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy

London psychotherapist Cedric Bouet-Willaumez was invited by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) to run workshops for its annual conference on 19 and 20 May 2012. The conference had as a central theme the importance of considering race, culture and language in sexual and relationship therapy. Cedric ran four workshops to a good reception by the conference delegates
(PressReleased) May 31st, 2012 – psychotherapy and counselling can greatly help people suffering from problems in their relationship and in their sexuality. In the case of couples psychotherapy and couples counselling, the couple jointly attend appointments. The role of the therapist is, quite simply, to provide a place for the couple to try and meet, so that they can see what it is that they are doing together.
In the case of relationship therapy or relationship counselling, one person attends the consultations and brings their issues for working through with the help of the psychotherapist.
Cedric knows from his extensive experience of working with couples and individuals who suffer from relationship and sexuality problems that it is the breakdown in communication that is the most telltale sign that something urgently needs to be solved between the partners with the help of an impartial third party.
Communication breakdown happens when two partners are unable to convey to one another what they think and feel. This may manifest as silence, violent communication, and/or repeated misunderstandings. The space offered by the therapist aims to facilitate communication and to help the two partners see each other with more understanding and clarity, and to make informed decisions about where to take their couple.
This work is made more complex when the couple has a multicultural and/or multilingual aspect to it. When this is the case, communication can be made even harder, and the Divide between the partners can seem to be beyond bridging. Cedric has researched the topic of multilingualism and given lectures and run workshops to help people with two things :
  1. to understand how their multilingualism can affect the way that they see and understand themselves (or not!)
  2. In the case of non-multilinguals, to “walk a mile in the shoes of the multilingual individual” and to get a feel of how it is to be them.
Cedric practises in two languages and has years of experience helping people communicate better and make sound decisions about their couple, their marriage or their sexuality, whatever that decision may be.
Cedric Bouet-Willaumez is a qualified psychotherapist and has three clinics in Maida Vale, Central London and Harley Street. Should you wish to seek help or make an appointment, the clinic hours are from 9:00 Am to 8:00 PM.
