Susanne Forster, MA (Dist), UKCP, HCPC, and BACP accredited
I am an Integrative clinical psychotherapist and Arts therapist; working humanistically and relationally, in order to create a tailored therapeutic approach for each individual.
Offering a compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental therapeutic environment that can support the expression and integration of complex feelings, which leads towards greater awareness and healing. This allows me to support people with a wide range of issues.
My many years experience of working within a range of arts includes theatre, music and writing. Over the last 15 years my focus has been on facilitating the self-development of others through psychotherapy, creativity and mindfulness.
I run a private practice in North London as well as working part-time with the Cognitive Analytic Therapy team at Guy’s Hospital, with previous experience on the Acute wards at the Maudsley Psychiatric Hospital (South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust).

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
