Dr Susannah Grant - Psychologist
We all face difficult points in our lives. Seeking professional help can be supportive whilst we are in the midst of such times, lessen the time we spend feeling stuck, enable long lasting change. Working with a psychologist can help you make sense of the difficulties you currently face, understand what has been preventing you from moving forward, and help you find ways to move forward towards improved wellbeing, improved relationships with yourself and others, and improved ability to engage in daily life. Ultimately, therapy aims to equip you to support yourself after therapy has ended, and live a meaningful and engaged life.
As a psychologist, I am well positioned to tailor therapy to the needs of those I work with. I have provided psychological therapy in the NHS, private and charitable sectors to adults, couples, and children. I have additional professional experience in the area of employee wellbeing and my experience in the personal development field spans 20 years.
Finding a therapist to work with can feel daunting - please reach out to me to discuss your individual needs, and find out if I can help you. I provide both short and longer term therapy; and offer a limited number of lower fee options.
To arrange a free 15 minute phone consultation or an initial session, please email me and we can set up a convenient time to talk further. At an initial session we'll talk about what brings you to therapy now and what you hope to gain from your sessions. If I believe I can help and you'd like to continue, we'll set up a second session, and will arrange how frequently to meet (usually weekly).
