About me

Hello, I'm Sam. I am a qualified counsellor working with adults & young people in Leeds. I see clients at The Horsforth Centre & at Wellspring House in Harrogate. 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. We can meet via Zoom or telephone.

What's Your Approach?

I am an integrative relational counsellor. This means I use a variety of different theories to guide my practice. I tailor it to the individual.

What Happens Once I contact You?

You can call, text, or email me. I may be in a session so not able to answer straight away. 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 overcome 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. My style focuses on building a relationship with the young person and using different mediums such as play or talk therapy to facilitate therapeutic change.

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have studied psychology at BA (Hons) and MSc level.

I completed a PGDIP in counselling & psychotherapy.

Training Completed in CBT and ACT. 

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
