Samantha Green MBACP Dip Integ Couns
I'm a experienced counsellor registered with the BACP ( British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
Life throws things at us all the time and we all react differently.It may be you feel anxious, stressed, are grieving.Talking to someone non-judgemental in a safe, calm environment can help. This is were counselling comes in, I offer you the opportunity to look at and work through things that are preventing you from living the life you want.
Many people have found counselling to be life changing in a positive way. Developing a understanding of yourself, your past or how you react and why allows you the opportunity to choose your future reactions to people and circumstances. A time to talk and explore emotions, feelings and difficulties without judgement.
I work holistically with a integrative approach, meaning your session is tailored to meet your needs or short term with CBT to help with OCD, phobias, fears and anxiety.
My private practise is based in Gravesend near the A2 so easily accessible from Medway, Dartford, Meopham and surrounding areas.
My background is nursing, followed by work within social services. I am a volunteer Samaritan which calls on all my skills. I have worked within the NHS PCT counselling within GP practices involving a wide variety of issues.
I understand the fear and anxiety of the unknown and taking the first step, the first appointment is your chance to say what has brought you to therapy and discuss any worries or anxieties you may have, to see if it feels right for you before committing.
