About me


Are you feeling anxious? Panicky ? Depressed ? Not sure where your life is going ? Keep dwelling on the past ?

Hello, I am Samantha and i have felt all these things, in fact that is why i went to counselling and then trained for 6 years to be a counsellor myself due to my positive experience of therapy. Your past may be causing you to struggle,you may just feel that something is not quite right or you feel sad or confused. Counselling can assist with these feelings . Friends and family can support us enormously but it very often helpful to have a third party professional listen without judgment and in a confidential and safe environment.
I offer some concessions please ask ask me when you call or text.
I work with all of the below but I specialise in anxiety disorders. For example:-

generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic, health anxiety and any other debilitating feelings of anxiety.

If you are struggling with gender identity or sexuality these are issues i am trained in and sensitive to.

Call, text or email me to inquire about available appointments or for any other information.

I also offer home visits for those who would find it difficult to come to me.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Do you feel anxious? Wake up every morning with a churning stomach or heart pounding?

I specialize in anxiety issues and we can find ways to help you cope and feel much better.

Do you cry for no obvious reason ? Are you not enjoying things or activities you used to?

You may have low mood or depression. You do not have to live like that, We can work together to find a way through those thoughts and feelings.
