Hello, I'm Sam. I am a qualified counsellor working with adults & young people in Leeds. I see clients at two locations, Leeds city centre and The Horsforth Centre. The initial appointment is free. I work with a wide range of mental health issues. I offer a professional service to support you in overcoming whatever difficulty is holding you back.
Do I Need Counselling?
Counselling can be useful if you are finding it difficult to overcome thoughts/feelings that may be disrupting your day to day life. If you find it difficult to alter your mood and feel trapped in a cycle, then counselling may be a solution. Perhaps, issues from your past or concerns about your future, are impacting your present. Counselling affords you the opportunity to express yourself in a secure confidential space.
What's Your Approach?
I am an integrative counsellor. This means I use a variety of different theories to guide my practice. I tailor it to the individual. For example, we can take a creative approach with our sessions or explore thoughts using structured sessions. The choice is yours. We will move at your pace.
What Happens Once I contact You?
You can call, txt, or email me. I may be in a session so not able to answer straightaway. We will arrange our first session to discuss your reasons for seeking counselling. I will explain confidentiality and how I work. This really is an opportunity for you to see if you would like to work with me.
How Long will Counselling Last?
An individual session lasts for 50 minutes. We will meet weekly at the same time and day. I offer short term and long term counselling. For example, you may have a specific issue to address like anxiety. We can set a goal to overcoming it and work towards that. This will influence the number of sessions.
Do You Work With Young People?
Yes, I work with young people aged 5-18. I have extensive training with youth. I am DBS checked. I offer play, sand, drama, and other mediums to facilitate the young persons self expression.
I offer discounted rates during off peak hours for students.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. If you have any further questions please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
