Susannah Newell Therapy
I am an integrative therapist and registered BACP counsellor experienced in working with many issues. Through my work in low cost therapy services and at St. Christopher’s Hospice, I have experience working with various presenting issues.
Although I work with any problem, my particular interests and experience are in loss & bereavement; relationship issues; men & women adjusting to pregnancy and parenthood or coping with miscarriage or abortion. Being a mother myself, I understand the highs, lows and monumental shift that parenthood brings and how useful therapy can be in the perinatal period and beyond. I've helped many people struggling with bereavement at the ground-breaking St. Christopher's Hospice, which founded palliative care in the UK.
Some trainings don’t require therapists/psychologists to have therapy themselves. My training did and the extensive therapy I myself have had not only helps me help you, the client, but also means I know exactly what it feels like to be the client’s chair.
Always fascinated by what makes us tick, I took up studying psychology at the earliest opportunity. I then worked as an Occupational Psychologist, granting me specialist experience in work-related issues. I later spent years in the travel industry. My career reflects our dual human urges to be present and understand vs. the desire to get away. Nowadays I go away less but enjoy travelling with my therapy clients around their inner workings and lives in order to together improve them.
