Samantha Campbell Dip.Couns Registered Counsellor MBACP
People come to counselling for many different reasons. Life has a tendency to throw major challenges at us without warning. You may find yourself dealing with a specific life changing circumstance such as a bereavement, traumatic experience, relationship difficulties or redundancy to name a few. Sometimes being able to pin point feelings can be a little difficult. You may be experiencing feelings of being in a rut and are anxious, depressed or just unsure of how you currently feel about your life or a certain situation.
Acknowledging you may need some help is a big and very positive step in the right direction. Having a support network is a good thing, but you may not want or feel able to open up and discuss your inner most thoughts and feelings with those closest to you. This is where having a space to talk about whatever is happening for you with an impartial, trusted person in a confidential setting can be beneficial.
Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, my role as therapeutic counsellor is to provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you are able to explore your thoughts and feelings openly. We can work together with an aim to evaluate where you feel you are currently in your life, then identify what direction you may want your life to take and what process you need to undertake to achieve your aims.
My approach is integrative and heavily influenced by person centred and psychodynamic theories. I do not see therapy as something that is the same for all and believe by combining approaches from a variety of theories I am able to adapt them to personally suit the individual needs of each client. Essentially this means that I am here to support you, whilst together we shall explore whatever issues present themselves for you at this time as well as acknowledging how your past may have influenced your current choices and behaviour.
