About me

Is this familiar to you? I have too many thoughts and feelings and just cannot make sense of them or feel that life has no purpose? Or even? I'm struggling to cope, make life decisions, move on or feel stuck. Do you ever feel some of your problems are getting worse rather than better and slowing you down? Does it ever feel like no one understands what you’re truly feeling?

My experience and training spans nearly over a decade in therapy. My specialist areas include relationships, abuse, depression, trauma, anger, bereavement, anxiety, drugs & substance misuse, sex, self harm, suicidal thoughts, LGBTQ, Menopause and Anti-Discrimination work. My coaching style, tips and techniques in the dating world is insightful for many in finding good healthy and loving relationships but also building self esteem & confidence.
I uniquely offer therapy to both individual and groups who are survivor's of domestic violence, rape and sexual assault.

I hope you will find the information you are looking for here. If not please contact me on 01344 723151 and I will answer your questions.

I offer counselling sessions for individuals, couples, families and groups and am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

In the right counselling relationship the benefits are endless.

Forever hopeful,

Shahajra ( Sam )

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
