Dr Sam Spedding, Chartered Counselling Psychologist
I am a counselling psychologist who works with a variety of difficulties including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and eating disorders. I pay particular attention to how people interact socially and express emotions. I treat people in a non-judgemental manner, provide a safe environment that facilitates psychological change, and work collaboratively towards agreed goals.
I am registered with and able to provide psychological therapy through the following insurance companies: Aviva, AXA PPP, PruHealth and WPA.
Enquiries are dealt with confidentially and promptly. I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

I have done further professional training in cognitive behavioural therapy for eating disorders (CBT-E), interpersonal therapy (IPT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), the Maudsley model of treatment for anorexia (MANTRA), and in cognitive behavioural approaches to psychological trauma and PTSD.
