Dr Susan Brannick (BA, MSc, PsychD, HCPC-REG, CPsychol)
Hi, I am a clinical psychologist based in East Dulwich and the City. I specialise in cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness based cognitive therapy.
I help people who are struggling with a range of difficulties including anxiety, shame, low self-esteem, depression and relationship problems. I have extensive experience of working with people who find that earlier traumatic experiences are affecting life in the here and now.
Using evidence based approaches; I work with clients to develop an individualised psychological understanding of the difficulties they are facing. This understanding can create the space for people to make changes to feel better and more connected in their lives.
Previous clients have described me as compassionate, calm and non-judgemental. I enjoy my work and have seen many people increase their confidence, overcome feelings of depression and anxiety and move forward with a renewed sense of direction following a change-focused therapy.
What to expect
Deciding to have therapy and then choosing a therapist can be a daunting process. An important part of this is determining whether the therapist is the right fit for you and your needs. To support this, I offer a free initial phone call consultation to discuss what you are seeking help and whether I could be of help.
The first assessment session is focused on exploring what you feel is not working in your life currently and what you would like to change. It is also an opportunity to help you to see if you feel comfortable with me, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a doctorate in clinical psychology which involved specialist training in CBT, systemic therapy and psychotherapy therapy models. I am trained to work with individuals and groups of all ages, experiencing a wide range of difficulties.
I have specialist training in mindfulness based cognitive therapy and am experienced in offering individual and group mindfulness interventions. I have training and experience in trauma focused CBT and narrative exposure therapy for trauma. I am skilled in psychodynamic assessment and formulation, having received specialist training in this model when working with clients who experienced childhood trauma and severe psychological distress later in life.
I have held roles in teaching, training and supervision on clinical psychology doctorate programmes, as well as medical school teaching and acting as an expert peer reviewer for a research journal. I work part time in the NHS where I am the local lead for a psychological therapy service working with people in A&E and hospital wards (and the staff who help them), who are going through a mental health crisis or struggling with physical health issues.
