Aryeh Sampson MA , MBACP (accredited) Marriage and Individual Psychotherapist
I specialise in helping individuals and couples improve their relationships and overcome anxiety, anger and depression.
How can I help?
1) Couple and Relationship Issues
Couples often experience a breakdown of communication, that causes a fight and flight reaction. These may become repetitive cycle of self destructive behaviour were anger expressed spins out of control .A reduction of emotional closeness, trust and physical intimacy follows which can lead to crises in the relationship, affairs and even the threat of divorce.
Together we explore what you need, why there is disconnection and how you can get the relationship you want. A key to this is building open and calm communication in order to understand each other, resolve conflict and meet each others needs . We also focus on building greater appreciation, care and fun to reignite love and connection in the relationship.
Separation and Divorce Counselling
I also offer counselling for those who have decided to separate or divorce who want to end there relationship in an amicable way . There may be concerns about how best to manage the impact on children and boundary issues. Relationship counselling can support this process and help to end a relationship in a healthy way.
I offer counseling for couples dating and prior to marriage which is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship to build the best possible future. As every person comes into the relationship with their own history , values and expectations,. its valuable to identifying strengths and potential challenges. We look at issues such as building effective communication, resolving conflict and how to maintain love and affection .

2) Overcoming Anxiety ( Generalised Anxiety Disorder & Panic Disorder)
Anxiety comes from underlying fear. To overcome it, we need to understand what the fear is and what is causing it. Sometimes it can be based on illusory thinking, where a person focuses on the worst case scenario coming true. These thoughts need to be challenged so we can eliminate them. . When the fear is a real one, it needs to be confronted by taking appropriate action. There are times when anxiety is based on the influences from past experiences, which need to be addressed to resolve them.

3) Anger Management
Anger can wreak havoc in a person’s life. With anger management a person gains understanding into what’s triggering the anger and how to change the way you respond. This can be by expressing feelings in a healthy way, and taking appropriate steps to solve the underlying cause of the anger. In each case anger management is tailored to the needs of the clients.
