Suzanne is trained in counselling psychology and has expertise in working with children, adolescents and teenagers experiencing mental health difficulties. She provides an
integrative approach to her work based on comprehensive assessment and formulation
and particularly draws upon models of person-centred therapy, cognitive behaviour
therapy (CBT) and mindfulness in her practice. She believes the relationship between
client and therapist to be the most important part of therapy and that by providing the
necessary conditions for reflection and growth she can offer a space to heal.
Suzanne has over 10 years’ experience working in several areas of mental health including
university, school, and private mental health care settings. She has gained valuable
experience working privately with young individuals with autism and their families across
London. In this role she has helped children, both verbal and non – verbal, to develop
emotionally, socially, and communicatively and overall to cope with the everyday
stressor’s living with autism can present. She has worked in a multidisciplinary team and
combined evidence-based behaviour analysis with play therapy and
psychodynamic theory to achieve excellent results for her clients and their families.
Alongside her work with Vitus Wellbeing, Suzanne is also currently working for the NHS as a psychologist in the neurodevelopmental pathway psychology team in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services).
Suzanne has a special interest in the experiences of young elite athletes in schools.
Having competed at an elite level herself whilst growing up in Ireland, Suzanne understands the rigour and stressors involved in balancing academia, intense training and competition, as well as the hidden stressors that often exist for teenagers and adolescents.
She also previously researched the effectiveness of therapeutic treatments for bulimia in adolescents and the effects of colour on mood.
