About me

Hello my name is Christy Samuels. 

Please allow me to take this opportunity to offer you a safe and confidential space where you can work through issues you may be finding difficult . A space where judgment will be suspended and movement towards the person you would like to be made possible. Though wounds may hurt they can be healed. I hold a belief that healing is possible and deserved by everybody.

Training, qualifications & experience

My main training is in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and Counselling.  Although I have studied other models. Transactional Analysis is a therapy that offers people a means of discovering how they interact with themselves, others and the world. I have 10 years experience working with groups and individuals. This includes helping people struggling with addiction.

I have a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and Counselling and a Diploma in Health and Social Care

I have received training in Trauma Focused Therapy, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I also have qualifications in mentoring and coaching.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
