Samantha Carbon - Psychotherapist (MSc) UKCP, MBACP & Clinical Supervisor
In light of the current situation and following the government's recommendation, I will be offering telephone or video counselling. During this difficult period it is of the utmost importance to take time for our mental health and to keep talking. Stay well and safe.
I work from an integrative framework, which means that I will adapt my holistic approach to best suit your needs, and will include elements of Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic approaches. At the heart of my therapeutic model is the belief that within a safe, non- judgemental and mutually collaborative environment, we can all begin to reconnect with our true selves.
If you are suffering from emotional distress or mental health issues contact me. You may want to take some time to review the past in order to make more satisfying choices in the present, or be struggling with confidence and a sense of self behind the roles and often necessary masks at work or in family life.

• Relationship issues
• Eating disorders

• Co-Dependent relationships
• Obesity & body image
• Work related issues and Cross cultural issues
• Race issues

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
