Samantha Pierre-Joseph - MBACP, Adv Dip Couns, Dip Supervison, BSc (Hons)
I'm an experienced integrative counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor providing individual, face to face, skype, telephone and home visit therapy sessions in North London.
My therapeutic orientation is humanistic integrative, which considers the whole person – mind, body and spirit. This approach places great emphasis on valuing individual differences, thus I draw upon a range of creative theories and approaches; humanistic, existential, psychodynamic, transpersonal and cognitive behavioural, to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of my clients’ internal world and their experiences which enables me to tailor the therapeutic approach specifically to meet each individual client’s needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Post Graduate Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision. In addition I also have a 1st Class Honours Degree in Psychology & Counselling Skills, alongside the John Ives Memorial Award for the most outstanding research project on: Childhood attachment styles and their influence on later romantic relationship choices.
I currently provide psychological services in my private practice; North London Integrative Counselling, offering short term and open ended counselling, psychotherapy and clinical consultancy.
I also have previous experience working therapeutically at; One in Four, NHS Primary Service, CPPD Low Cost Counselling Service, Westminster Drug Project, Pyramid Health & Social Care, and OCD Action.
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.
