Samantha Walsh, Clinical Psychologist
My name is Samantha Walsh and I am a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Summertown Oxford.
I offer psychotherapy to adults and adolescents for a broad range of difficulties such as:
- relationship problems
- work challenges
- trauma, to name a few
An individual may even choose to enter therapy with the goal of personal growth.
The therapy is collaborative where we develop a shared understanding of what may be troubling you. This is done keeping in mind confidentiality and privacy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and qualified as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa, where I worked with a diverse range of clients with a broad range of difficulties. However, I have since moved to England where I have worked in the NHS. These experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals with a broad spectrum of difficulties and who are at varying life stages, from the young to the older adult.
I am registered as a Clinical Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) UK, as well as the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
