Susan Hall MA BPC Registered Individual and Couple psychotherapist
I am an experienced psychoanalytic psychotherapist working with individuals and couples. I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and follow its Code of Ethics. I trained at the British Psychotherapy Foundation and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, two leading centres for psychotherapy based in London. I have over 15 years' experience of working as a therapist in private practice and NHS settings.
I have a private practice in the centre of Cambridge near Parker's Piece where I provide psychotherapy for a wide range of difficulties including relationship problems, depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement as well as psychoanalytic psychotherapy for personal development.
PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUPLES THERAPY
If you are unhappy in your personal life, psychotherapy may be able to help you by addressing the roots of your unhappiness, not just the symptoms. It is a talking therapy which aims to facilitate deep-seated, enduring changes to your emotional well-being
It can be difficult to do this by yourself, or even with a friend, because parts of our mind are unconscious but nevertheless exert a powerful influence on what we think, feel and do- even if it's against our best interests. Many unconscious patterns are laid down early in our lives and we can feel trapped without knowing why.
As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I have been trained to listen carefully to what you say about your experiences, hopes, thoughts and feelings to help you know and understand yourself better.
Gaining this insight will help you to think and behave in new ways and make better decisions. You are likely to feel stronger and less confused.
You can contact me by email or phone to discuss an initial consultation.
At the initial consultation we will decide whether the therapy I offer is likely to help you. If we decide to continue, sessions will be at the same time each week to fit in with your other commitments.
