Susan Raftery MA, MSc, MBACP(Snr Accred)
I am a fully qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist, with BACP, BPC, UKCP and BAPPS accreditation and over 20 years of experience, during which I have worked with people from a wide variety of different backgrounds. I work from my consulting room in Uxbridge, which is easily accessible by bus or tube, and is a 10 minute walk from the town centre. There is ample parking available in my road for a very small charge. I am available Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am and 6 pm (last appointment time). My consulting room is ground floor, but there are a few steps to my front door. In some circumstances, I offer telephone sessions. I am also a qualified supervisor.
