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.
