About me

Maybe life is challenging and problematic. Do you feel like you are battling through a storm and don’t know which direction to take?

Leaning on friends and family in times of need can leave us feeling like a burden.

Calm Harbour offers you a different and experienced perspective around the concerns you have.

I offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.

Seeking help is a sign of personal strength and courage and is the first step on your journey to well-being.


Do you think counselling is an expensive luxury that you cannot afford?

Are you on a long waiting list and feeling like it will never be your turn?

Have you have been putting off seeking a counsellor? Then now is the time to take that step and book your counselling sessions.

We all need help at some times in our lives and while the cost of living goes up and wages stay the same, Calm Harbour is pleased to be able to offer AFFORDABLE counselling.

Take advantage of our special offer– 6 counselling sessions for £150.00, that is just £25 per session. A saving of £60 (This offer does not include our interpreter service, couples therapy or  home visits).

***Payment for the 6 sessions is in advance, offers no refunds for cancellations and all sessions should be used within a three month period - the 6 sessions are 'banked' for you to use as you prefer.***

Calm Harbour Counselling has a comfortable, discreet and easily located office in the beautiful Grade II listed Houldsworth Mill in Reddish.  Offering plentiful free parking, great bus routes and close to the M60, M67 and M62 motorways, ten minutes from the City Centre and local to Tameside, Stockport and Cheshire areas.

I am experienced in working with a number of issues, including:

  •     Anxiety
  •     Depression
  •     Addiction
  •     Bereavement
  •     Anger Management
  •     Redundancy
  •     Sexual Orientation
  •     O.C.D. (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  •     P.T.S.D. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  •     Sexual Dysfunction
  •     Domestic Violence
  •     Relationship Problems
  •     Sexual Abuse
  •     Loss
  •     Debt

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I am trained as an integrative counsellor which means I have studied a number of counselling models which in turn, enables me to use my skills to best meet your needs.

As part of the ethical approach to my practice, I regularly undergo supervision in line with the recommendations made by the BACP and I am committed to my own personal development and frequently attend continuing professional development training.

A client has given me his permission to share the following feedback:
"When I started my counselling sessions I was quite unsure of the process or indeed, whether I would benefit from it in any way. Within a few weeks Sam and I had built a solid understanding and were able to not only identify but also challenge and begin to overcome, some quite negative behaviours that I had been doing for a number of years. Whilst I found the sessions somewhat difficult and challenging at times, I feel that I am finally in a position where I am able to not only understand myself better, but I can actually adapt and overcome where previously I may have simply buried my head in the sand. I am now able to confidently avoid previous negative “go to” behaviours. I am happier, more content and more positive than I have been in years. I cannot recommend Calm Harbour Counselling enough."

Couples counselling - £35 per individual for an initial appointment and £45 per couple thereafter.

Telephone counselling is £30 per 50 minute session.
