Susan White C.Psychol., AFBPsS, BPC. Consultant Psychologist and Psychotherapist
I am a Consultant Psychologist and Psychotherapist with 20 years experience working in the NHS.
People seek psychotherapy for different reasons, some, for example, may seek help in reaction to a life changing event or for a long standing mental health difficulty or relationship issues. In seeking psychotherapy, you may be quite conscious of what you wish to change, but have no way of addressing the difficulty. Psychotherapy enables this process to take place, by being more open to emotional difficulties and understanding the obstacles that get in the way.
I offer initial consultation appointments in Central London. During this consultation, the aim is to understand the nature of your problems and to think about whether this mode of therapy would be helpful.
A second consultation is usually offered in order to reach a decision. Once a decision is made, a preliminary appointment will be arranged if psychotherapy is thought to be suitable. Psychotherapy is offered on a once or twice weekly basis.
