About me

Hello, I'm Sam, an accredited psychotherapist and counselor specializing in working with adults in North West London and online. Together, we can navigate the challenges you may be facing, whether it's stemming from a traumatic event, a complex childhood with experiences of neglect and abuse, or to work on patterns that you notice might be blocking you reaching your goals. A common thread of depression and anxiety often lead people to initiate their therapeutic journey, or perhaps you're simply seeking additional support during a phase where you don't feel quite like yourself.

Our collaborative work may focus on a specific aspect of your life for short-term intervention, or it could involve a more comprehensive exploration requiring in-depth psychotherapy to untangle your past. As an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist, I draw upon various approaches tailored to each individual, incorporating spiritual aspects into the therapeutic process as well as inner child work. I enjoy working creativity through techniques such as play, art, sand trays, visualizations, and dream work.

I offer a safe and supportive environment for you to delve into your self-discovery journey, recovering facets of yourself that may have been impacted along the way. While the path of therapy isn’t always easy, the transformative rewards make the journey worthwhile. If you feel prepared to embark on the adventure of personal growth and healing, please reach out to schedule an initial session. I'm eager to be a part of your transformative experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a certificate in the foundations of counselling and psychotherapy, and a diploma in counselling and psychotherapy from the Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy education. I am UKCP accredited.

I have worked for five charities in the recent years providing therapy for domestic violence survivors, those suffering from bereavement and trauma or childhood neglect,  addiction, those impacted by cancer, pregnancy crisis and with young people.
