Sam Segar MBACP
I am an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist who works face to face with individual clients aged over 12 years. Counselling and psychotherapy can help support you through difficult times and changes in your life, for example through bereavement, loss of a relationship or health, family problems, stress, anxiety or depression. Sometimes we need to re-evaluate our lives and purpose for living or look into the past to become aware of how we react to the present and how we may better approach life in the future. By working together in therapy, we can explore what is important to you, what you want or need to change and how you may achieve that.
I work with an Integrative approach - drawing on psychodynamic, humanistic person-centred, existential and post-modern ideologies. The therapeutic approach that arises from your personal therapy is built and moulded upon what you bring to the sessions. However there is evidence that shows the relationship between therapist and client is more important than the approach used. Therefore building an honest, trusting and supportive relationship between myself as the therapist and you as the client is where effective discovery of the self can occur.
I offer short and long term therapy from 6 weeks to 2 years+. Please enquire for an initial consultation where we can discuss these options further.
