Sam Andrews BSc (Hons) MBACP
I can only imagine what has led you to seeking support and want to assure you that my practice is both ethical within the regulatory BACP guidelines and centred around my clients and their needs.
I would like to offer you an appointment to come and meet me and experience my calm, confidential and caring therapy space. This is for you and I to identify what areas you may like to work on in therapy and if you chose to work together with me to make sure I have the experience to work with the issues you may be facing.
We look together at what you would like to work towards improving or altering the coping strategies you already have in place to enhance the way you manage.
I have experience of working with clients that have had a range of difficulties including Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement and Grief, Carers Fatigue, Betrayal and Affairs, Eating disorders, Stress, Work related stress, Panic attacks, Relationship difficulties, Relationship breakdowns, Emotional abuse, Physical abuse, Sexual abuse, Suicidal thoughts, Low self esteem and Lack of identity, Improving communication and Building confidence, Changing negative habits and Addictions, Family issues, Separation and Divorce.
Theses client’s have come from many diverse backgrounds including class, culture, religion, country, sexual orientation and age. As well as have a range of neurological conditions (with or without diagnosis) including ASD, ADHD, ADD, Aspergers, Bipolar and parents, carers or relatives that have children with these conditions as well as working with them at times of trying to gain a disgnosis.
I was trained in a Humanistic approach to counselling at the well known Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute Limited it is renowned for its rigorous and comprehensive training which has equipped me to appreciate and value everyone as an individual especially in how they experience different situations and what they may need from relationships.
I also work Integratively which allows me to bring in alternative theories that fit best with you and your individual needs of working together towards your goals, this includes creative ways to help unlock where there may not be words or for individuals who prefer a practical way of working.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
