Susan White C.Psychol., AFBPsS, BPC. Consultant Psychologist and Psychotherapist
I am a Consultant Psychologist and Psychotherapist with 20 years experience of working in the NHS. I offer consultation and psychotherapy sessions to patients who either self refer or are referred by other mental health professionals. People often seek psychotherapy for personal reasons which may include wanting help to explore and understand long standing emotional or relationship problems or finding ways of coping with symptoms such as anxiety or depression and other mood related difficulties. The psychotherapy then enables you to achieve ways of understanding or resolving these problems in your own personal way and becoming aware of the obstacles that may prevent change.
I offer initial consultation appointments in Central London, near to Oxford Circus and Goodge Street tube stations. During this consultation appointment, the aim is to understand the nature of your problems and to think about whether this mode of therapy would be helpful. A second consultation is usually offered in order to reach a decision. Once a decision is made, a preliminary appointment will be arranged if psychotherapy is thought to be suitable. Psychotherapy is offered on a once or twice weekly basis at the same time each week.
