About me

I offer affordable counselling see below for details:

Hello, I am Samantha a Person Centered Counsellor with a particular interest in Gestalt therapy. I offer a calm, and non judgmental space for you to explore your life experiences and feelings. The  aim of my work with you is to help you find your own personal way through the changes you want to make in your life. Counselling offers you the space to reflect and think about yourself and your life. Exploring difficult issues  with a therapist provides an opportunity for you to gain a self awareness, and discover choices to make positive changes.
