Samantha Cozens BA (Hons), MA (Cantab), MA, AdDipEx, UKCP Reg., MBACP
No matter what may be troubling you, we will work together to create a safe space where no subject is off-limits, where you can share whatever is on your mind, assured in the knowledge that you will be met with warmth and acceptance.
As a former lawyer working in a big City law firm, I am acutely aware of the stresses and strains that can go with that sort of career.
In addition to working with anxiety and stress related issues, I am also experienced working with a wide array of other presenting issues including: depression; loss; isolation; relationship difficulties; feelings of stuckness; loss of purpose; low self-esteem; trauma; abuse and domestic violence.
I endeavour to offer you my full presence, to listen deeply and respectfully, asking the kind of questions that give you a chance to express more of your own truth, whatever that may be.
In addition to my private practice, I previously worked in an NHS service. I have also worked as a psychotherapist for several years at a counselling service in North West London.
I am experienced working on both a short-term and long-term basis.
My way of working is gentle but challenging.
Believing that only you can be the expert on you, I do not diagnose, pathologise or categorise.

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.
