Sam Torgersen MBACP BA Hons. Dip Counselling
I will offer you a safe, confidential and nurturing space, to help you get a different perspective. Together, we can explore any challenges you may be facing, to allow you to make positive changes in your life. I am here to answer any questions you may have about counselling and to support you in moving forwards with your decision. I welcome you to contact me by telephone or email. The next step would be to arrange a time for us to meet if this feels right for you.
As your counsellor, I will join you on your journey, and walk alongside you, as you lead the way. Counselling can be an exploration of your life, patterns you see in it and how you came to be who and where you are. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons but the need to be heard and understood is universal. I will offer you a non-judgemental space where this can be achieved.
At the centre of the therapy will always be our relationship and the space for this to flourish. A trusting relationship is the essence of successful therapy.
I am passionate about the benefits that counselling can provide. Through my work, I have experienced how counselling can improve individuals mental health and well being. As a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), my work is underpinned by their ethical framework which provides a robust framework for my practice.

I am available to offer private practice in Banbury and Chipping Norton.
I am happy to offer short or longer term work depending on your needs. Sometimes having a time limit can help to keep people focused, so they are more likely to make positive change in their lives. Other times, particularly when difficulties have been present for a long time or when a person is experiencing a number of different problems, having the ‘pressure’ of a predetermined ending can be unhelpful.
Because you are an individual, I will tailor my support to your specific needs.
My fees are £45.00 per 50 minute session.
