Samantha Pierre-Joseph - MBACP, Adv Dip Couns, BSc (Hons)
Qualified counsellor and psychotherapist providing individual face to face, skype, telephone and home visit therapy sessions in Hornsey and Wood Green in North London.
My therapeutic orientation is humanistic integrative, which considers the whole person – mind, body and spirit. The approach places great emphasis on valuing individual differences, thus I draw upon a range of creative theories and approaches; humanistic, existential, psychodynamic, transpersonal and cognitive behavioural, to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of my clients’ internal world and their experiences which enables me to tailor my therapeutic approach specifically to each individual client’s needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I first began my study of Psychology and Counselling at London’s Middlesex University, obtaining a 1st Class honours degree and award for the most outstanding research project on: Childhood attachment styles and their influence on later romantic relationship choices. Following this I completed a three year post graduate training programme to become a qualified therapist at CPPD counselling school in North London, obtaining a post graduate advanced diploma in humanistic integrative therapy.
