Dr Susan Renger
Susan is a pluralistic therapist, although her original training was in Person-centred Therapy. She specialises in ‘Therapeutic Learning’; a counselling approach which focuses on long-term learning to enable clients to become their own ‘self-therapist’. Her private client base is made up of individuals who are interested in becoming ‘fully-functioning’, or in aiming for an ongoing process of self-actualisation. This includes those struggling with issues around wealth and celebrity and clients who have reached a life stage involving significant change, such as retirement or redundancy. Susan also has a special interest in working with therapy groups focusing on personal skills development post-therapy.
Susan has therapy experience working with the mental health charity Mind and the Samaritans. She currently counsels staff in the NHS and works with The Brilliant Club, a charity aiming to encourage teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue academic interests through top universities. Susan is also currently pursuing post-doctoral research in the field of ‘Therapeutic Learning’ and self-therapy.
Susan’s early career included experience in management training, executive coaching and business coaching. Her work has been international, with organisations such as British Airways, ICI, Courtaulds, Roche Chemicals and TNT.
