About me

My name is Samantha and I work on a one to one basis with children and adults.  I can offer my services in person, by telephone or via Zoom.  The first session is always a two way assessment.  This means that the client can see if I am the right therapist for them & it also gives me the opportunity to check that I have the right skill set to support them.   I can work with specific or various issues.  I also offer longer term work to people that are interested in personal development where a deeper awareness can come about through self-exploration.

I am an integrative therapist, meaning that I use various techniques depending on what the client needs.  Children and adults require a different therapeutic approach and I am experienced in delivering both.  I am non-judgemental in my approach and offer a safe space  to explore anything that is challenging the client. 

Each session will last for 50 minutes and the cost is £50


Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a qualified Counsellor for 13 years and have also studied Voice Dialogue extensively (psychology of selves).  I run my own Private Practice offering Counselling to adults and children.  Within my work, I utilise different tools and skills depending on what is appropriate for each client.  

I have completed a Children's and Young People's Specialist Counselling Course and worked for a number of years with a Children's charity providing Counselling within Schools.

I am also contracted independently to provide Counselling services within Schools.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
