COVID-19 and Mental Health: If you are suffering with increased anxiety, low mood, stress, isolation or relationship difficulties, please reach out for support. Whether this is connecting with a loved one, friend or a therapist. There is support available as you navigate this difficult and uncertain time.
We know many people want to find better ways to relate to themselves and others, and have more fulfilling lives. To do this, they need to find a way forward that effectively addresses their individual needs and life experiences.
This can feel like a daunting and confusing task. Whilst we are fortunate to live in an age where information is readily available, the sheer volume of 'self help' information out there today can leave people overwhelmed, misinformed and criticising themselves for not being able to navigate their struggles by themselves.
We believe lived experiences are personal, nuanced and contextual; and that individually tailored therapy help can facilitate understanding, acceptance, healing and meaningful change.
We understand that your psychological wellbeing and relationships can feel stuck, frustrating and discouraging at times. Particularly now, with the additional impact of Covid-19. That's why here, we work collaboratively with you, drawing on current evidence-based psychological and therapeutic models, so that your needs and priorities are best met.
A consultation is available within 1 week of reaching out.
This is an opportunity to:
We'll think more about what bring you to therapy now and how we can work together.

With your goals and hopes for therapy at the centre of the work, therapy aims to help you:
"I now feel like myself again, I feel like I have gained my character and personality back. I feel as though the tools that I have learnt in therapy have become second nature. Therapy was incredibly helpful. I will look back with pride that I made some really good progress with my mental health."
"I am making positive progress with life and family relationships along with a more positive and confident approach to work and myself! Your support has been invaluable." Client
Hi, I'm Susannah Dr Susannah Grant (she/her), HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist; BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist, Couples & Relationship Therapist, Founder of The Relationship Psychologist Online Practice
I help individuals and couples make sense of, navigate and improve their relationships - with themselves and others. Challenges in relationships manifest in different ways for us all. Our mental and emotional health can be affected, as can the ways we act, communicate and engage in the world.
The way I work is relational, evidence based, and affirmative. As a GSRD (gender, sexuality & relationship diversity) informed practitioner, my practice is inclusive, and based on the principle that no gender, sexuality or relationship is better, more valid, or preferable than another. I draw on a number of different therapeutic models to best fit the needs of the clients I work with (such as ACT, CBT, existential & schema-informed therapy).
Professionally, I started offering psychological therapy in the NHS in the UK over ten years ago, charitable sector and private practice. Outside the clinic room I have presented psychology related topics to business leaders, medical doctors, students, parents and counselling professionals.
I feel very privileged to do the work that I do, and to be entrusted with the experiences of my clients. I complete ongoing training in areas most relevant to my clinical work so I can best help my clients. I've sat in the therapy chair myself, and know first hand what it takes to take the plunge and reach out, to work through challenges and to finish therapy. Please book a Consultation with me if you would like to find out more about starting therapy or ask me any queries you have about the process.
