About me

My name is Samantha Blackmore. I trained as an Integrative Counsellor 20 years ago and since qualifying, have practised in a variety of locations, including GP’s Surgeries, Relate Centres and my own private practice based in both Exeter and Exmouth. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully subscribe to their code of ethics. I also belong to the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), a body that regulates Psycho Sexual Therapists.

My training means that I can call upon several different theoretical approaches in my work with clients. My training has continuously developed and I've gained specialist Couples and Psycho Sexual Therapy skills from my work with The Relate Institute.

It is my fundamental belief that we all have the potential for growth and it is exactly this that empowers us to have a better quality of life, both in our relationships and careers. Understanding the patterns we live by gives us the potential to change the things we perhaps struggle with.

I understand that it can be difficult to go to a Counsellor. I aim to create a comfortable atmosphere in which my clients can begin to explore their difficult issues and feelings.

        Further information

        Most of us, if we're honest, might admit that we struggle from time to time. Perhaps our personal relationships feel like they're going in the wrong direction? Relationships with family members or work colleagues are possibly getting you down? Bereavement issues?

        Counselling can help with a variety of difficulties, amongst which:

        • Low Self Esteem
        • Relationships
        • Couple Therapy
        • Sexual Therapy - Dysfunctions such as impotence and loss of libido
        • Bereavement
        • Anxiety
        • Depression
        • Childhood Trauma and Abuse - how they impact the present
        • Adult Trauma and Domestic Violence

        Counselling is a process in which couples or individuals have the opportunity to discuss their feelings and anxieties with a professionally qualified and accredited counsellor in a strictly confidential, non-judgemental environment.
