Sam Shepherd (MBACP)
As a therapist I bring a natural warmth and openness to my work, creating an environment that feels safe, explorative and playful. Working as an integrative counsellor means I can work with a range of approaches that will best suit your individual needs.
Therapy is a space for us to explore how you feel about yourself, your life and your place in it. Working together to shed light on and disentangle what aspects of your life may no longer be working for you now and making room for new possibilities and opportunities in the future.
The therapy journey can be tough but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Much in the same way that we experience life. Whilst we all go through dark and difficult times we also have moments of joy, laughter, wonder and creativity. By connecting to this through our therapeutic work together, the aim is for you to ultimately feel lighter and freer to make choices in your life that best serve you.
I provide therapy from my counselling rooms in Sydenham and Monument.
