Meryl Suissa - MBACP (reg. Member)
Everyone goes through times that can feel overwhelming and very distressing. You may find yourself stuck in negative and destructive patterns - in those moments, I truly believe that therapy can truly save your life.
Therapy can also be a safe and exciting space for you to gain a better understanding of yourself and explore deeper issues that might have been lingering for a while.
I am a friendly, down-to-earth, professional, experienced and ethical integrative psychotherapist who offers short-term as well as long term therapy.
The integrative approach draws from a wide number of theoretical and clinical ideas ranging from psychodynamic, existential, humanistic and cognitive theories. This practice enables me to be more flexible and really explore what would suit your individual needs.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space to explore what your difficulties are in a way that works for you.
Am I right for you?
Finding the right therapist can be tricky but we can set-up an initial meeting to explore what brings you to therapy and to see whether I am the therapist for you. You can contact me on my phone or via email to set up an initial appointment.

- BACP Registered Member - MBACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
