About me

*** Please note that due to Covid-19 I am offering Telephone sessions only at present***

Hello my name is Samantha, I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor, Practicing currently via Telephone.

As a therapist I aim to provide a warm, empathic, safe space to listen, reflect and provide emotional support. I offer an external relationship away from distractions to focus on you.

By working on your emotional issues together, I aim to help you improve your mental health & well-being.

I believe that every individual is unique, what affects one person may not another. Together we can explore what may be causing you concern and through exploration, help to understand and manage these feelings.

I work with individuals 18+ on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling my clients to enhance their life and live it more fully.

The type of counselling I provide is grounded in Psychodynamic roots, which means we not only explore what has initially brought you to counselling, but also your past history. This means we'll gently explore your childhood relationships and experiences, to see if any links arise which may be unconsciously impacting your present situation, and choices you make. I feel that an awareness of this can aid positive change and growth within an individual.

Currently, I offer evening sessions via Telephone.

Please feel free to email me for any further information, or to check availability to book an initial assessment

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
