About me


I am Sam,

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor with membership to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I offer a confidential space for support and compassion empathy and understanding. I have a non-judgemental approach to help clients process problems or difficulties they have experienced in their life. I work with a range of different experiences such as problems at work, relationship issues, experience from your past e.g. trauma or abuse current health issues anxiety depression and sleeping. They may not always be a specific issue that the client feels the need to come to therapy it can be a way for personal growth, a space to talk through things and feelings to gain clarity.

I offer a safe environment for the client to be heard regardless of what brings you to Counselling.

As a counsellor I am here to explore feelings and emotions with the client that can often be related to their life experiences. Giving the client the opportunity to reflect on what has happened and to gain an alternative perspective on what has brought them to counselling. In the hope that this reduces confusion and helps the client to navigate challenges and to make positive changes within their life. As well as improving self-esteem and confidence.

I work relationally with clients using an integrative approach that is client led, I feel that the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and client is important to make a positive change.

I understand it is important to find the right counsellor for the client therefore, I offer a informal initial session to give the client chance to ask any questions and see how they feel about working together. You are under no obligation to continue with the therapy after this appointment. If you would like to book an appointment, please email me.

I offer face to face, online and phone appointments. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my page.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Bachelors of Arts with Honours Degree in Counselling (Integrtive Theory and Practice) 

I have experience working with client face to face, online and on the phone.

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.
