Samantha Swann-Horler (Registered Psychologist)
How can therapy be helpful?
Sometimes life can be difficult. We all face challenges, whether we are at work or school, caring for others, managing difficult relationships or we have been affected by past experiences. Struggling through these times can feel overwhelming and unmanageable, often resulting in negative thoughts and feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, anger, sadness and panic.
Meeting with a psychologist can offer you the time and space to explore difficult life experiences and to develop an understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I am an experienced psychologist who is registered as a practitioner psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have over 10 years experience of therapeutic contact with adults and children across a range of settings. I work with a variety of psychological therapies, including the person-centred approach and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and utilise Systemic Theory, Attachment Theory and Inner Child Theory to inform my practice.
In addition to individual therapy, I also offer supervision and consultation to mental health professionals and psychology trainees.
I consistently adhere to the Code of Ethics and Conduct of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council's (HCPC).
Currently, I can offer appointments at venues in Coalbrookdale and Lightmoor. Please feel free to contact me for a (free) telephone consultation to discuss whether or not you feel therapy may be beneficial for you at this time. I understand that this can feel daunting and I fully appreciate the courage that this may take. I look forward to hearing from you and to answering any questions you may have about meeting with a psychologist.
