Dr Amita Sehgal

Dr. Amita Sehgal is a couple psychoanalytic psychotherapist accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council through the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology. She works as a Visiting Lecturer at Tavistock Relationships, and she maintains a private practice in Central London. She holds a Ph.D. in genetic engineering from the University of Leeds.

Prior to embarking upon a career in adult mental health, Amita held postdoctoral fellowships in immunological research at the Institute of Child Health, the primary medical research partner of the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London and, also, at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Amita's ongoing interest in the psychological processes of separation and divorce fuels her commitment to resolving family disputes out of court. Consequently, she works closely with practitioners of the family justice system to provide therapeutic services to separating and divorcing couples. As an organisational consultant, she offers "emotional health-checks" which focus upon enhancing the work environment by optimising staff efficiency, productivity and morale.

Amita is a registered Collaborative Practitioner with Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association), and she is also part of London Divorce Options, a team of highly skilled professionals who provide separating couples with a wide range of out-of-Court dispute resolution options. She is published in the field of couple psychotherapy and is currently completing a book on the psychology of sadism across the lifespan.
