Samantha Colmer (MBACP) Dip In Therapeutic Counselling, Dip CBT
Welcome, to my profile
Hi I’m Samantha, I believe that everyone deserves the gift of therapy. I am a passionate therapist who enjoys working with a diverse client base.
My aim is to empower people to bring about transformational change. Finding a therapist you connect with is important and therefore I offer a free 20 minute telephone conversation. If you then decide you would like to meet face to face, we will continue with a free 50 minute, no obligation initial consultation.
I work as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor. I am trained using Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt, as well as being trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. (CBT)
What this means is that the therapy you receive will be bespoke to your needs, whether it’s short or long term, telephone or face to face, we will work at your pace with gentle challenge to deepen your understanding of self.
I have worked with a varied range of clients. My previous experience has mainly been with adults dealing with mental health such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction issues and eating disorders. I have spent several years working as a counsellor in HMP prisons allowing me to gain a wealth of knowledge and skills.
Engaging in the therapy can be difficult for some, with this in mind I offer walking therapy and outdoor therapy to help with a more organic process. Remember, this is about you. Your therapy, your way.
