I'm Sam and I'm an approachable, experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I have clients who see me for a few sessions, some who commit to therapy for a specific period of time and others for whom therapy is a key part of their week and they choose to work long-term.
Finding the right psychotherapist for you is like any relationship in that you have to find someone that FEELS right for you - which is why I offer a free 30 minute session so we can meet and you can see how things feel for you, without any pressure. It also gives me a chance to get to know you and understand how best I can help you.
I have specialist knowledge and understanding of family relationships, addictions, codependency, "love" addiction, sex addiction, break ups, bereavements and losses, LGBTQ+, business coaching and more.
My style is relaxed yet attentive, I try to do my best to be as transparent as possible and I aim very much to be 'along side' you. I'm here to support you in knowing yourself more fully.

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.
