Profile

Dr Susan Childs is the Lead Clinical Psychologist who facilitates and oversees all pain management services at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Pain management services offer a wide range of services that aim to meet the needs of the varying presentations that often accompany persistent pain. Pain management services offer group interventions matched to the patient's levels of ability and mood issues. Those who do not meet the entrance criteria (but who have potential to achieve these) are offered specialised dual sessions to move them towards this goal. Patients who cannot attend groups can access 1:1 assessment for onward referral or, in a limited number of cases, 1:1 therapy.
