Samantha Swann-Horler (Registered Psychologist)
How can therapy be helpful?
Sometimes life can be difficult, with daily challenges feeling unmanageable and past experiences feeling overwhelming. Struggling through these times can often result in negative thoughts and feelings. 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 work as a Highly Specialist Psychologist in the NHS and I am registered as a practitioner psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have extensive experience of working with adults and children across a range of settings and I utilise a variety of psychological therapies 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).
Please feel free to contact me for a (free) telephone consultation to discuss whether or not you feel therapy may be beneficial for you. 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.
