About me

Hello, and welcome.

My name is Samantha and I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist trained in a person-centered approach. I work out of an office based in the Rossendale area and offer online/telephone counselling for those who prefer or are unable to travel.

I also work in the Rochdale Borough. 

Integrative Counselling means that I am able to combine different interventions into our sessions whilst ensuring the focus is on you and what you want to gain from therapy.

I strive to provide you with a safe and secure place for you to be completely yourself where there is no judgement. We will work together at a pace that is right for you and explore your thoughts, feelings and presenting issues. This will allow us to collaboratively work together on issues you bring to sessions. Tailoring my sessions to your needs is something I aim for whilst offering a professional service.  In my career, I have helped clients overcome a range of different issues and worked with a wide range of clients from all walks of life.

Allowing space for you to have someone to listen where you feel heard and understood with no judgement is of the most importance, meaning you can start the healing process. 

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I strive to follow their ethical guidelines and code of practice therefore, making sure to provide ethical therapy.

Like all counsellors, I have supervision once a month to ensure I am giving my clients the best possible sessions and therapy they can receive.

I offer short-term, long-term therapy and also maintainers (this could be monthly).

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

"I’ve had counselling before in the past, but I didn’t find someone who I gelled with until I met Sam. Sam was able to tell when I wasn’t being myself and helped me reflect on situations. I feel that Sam’s honesty with me helped me feel like someone was there for me and that she truly understood me. Sam always put me at ease, and I came out of my sessions feely so relieved. Sam is easy to talk to and thank you for getting me through this hard time, I genuinely don’t think I would have been able to get through this without my weekly sessions." - Anonymous November 2022

"I got a lot of support and help, I could not have done it without Sam. She has helped me feel proud of myself and gained my confidence again. The best person I've spoken to. You saved my life" - Anonymous July 2022

"Counselling has been a big help, especially being able to speak with you" - Anonymous March 2021

"Sam was great, was there when I needed her" - Debra June 2022

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
