Samantha Parsons, Counsellor, Psychotherapist, MBACP, BA (Hons), DipHE
Hello my name is Samantha, I am a qualified experienced Counsellor, practising in the Sutton & Coulsdon areas of Surrey.
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. My practice's are located in Coulsdon and Sutton, Surrey. Both are within walking distance from Sutton and Coulsdon train stations, and within easy reach of (Croydon, Wallington, Banstead, Redhill, Merstham and London).
Please feel free to call or email me for further information, or to check availability to book an initial assessment
