Samantha Lindley CPsychol, MBACP, HCPC Registered
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist providing one-to-one therapy to adults. I treat a wide spectrum of psychological difficulties including anxiety, depression, stress, OCD, phobias, relationship difficulties and post-traumatic stress disorder. As well as private practice I also have significant experience of working in forensic settings and the NHS in a health psychology department. I have worked in a number of areas including; palliative-care, oncology, dermatology, renal and trauma and orthopaedic.
My therapeutic approach tends to be integrative. I use a lot of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and compassion focused therapy within my therapy but always from a humanistic perspective.
Based on a trusting relationship, I work with my clients to identify collaborative goals for therapy, exploring with the client what they would like to change and how they can find more helpful ways of coping with their difficulties.
I work from the Pure Offices in Cheltenham (situated behind the Nuffield Hospital) where there is convenient parking, with light and airy consulting rooms.
Training, qualifications & experience
I undertook my professional training at Wolverhampton University and gained a MSc and Post MSc Diploma in Counselling Psychology. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy which is particularly effective for sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder. I have worked in a number of settings including the NHS, forensic services and schools.
