Samantha Smyke. UKCP Dipl. Psych
There are many reasons that can bring us into therapy whether it might be current difficulties, long term struggles, illness or just hope for change. I know how valuable it is to have a safe and confidential space where you can explore how you really feel and think about things. In this space, it can help you to uncover unhealthy patterns and destructive behaviours with a view to bringing about a change.
I am a fully trained Psychotherapist with over 7 years of experience working with clients. I see individuals at my Private Practice in Woking for short and long term counselling. Please feel free to call me and I'd be happy to speak to you.
