About me and my therapy practice

Hello. I'm Sam. I offer a warm, safe welcoming counselling space for you to explore your feelings and thoughts. 

It's not always easy to sort through your confusing thoughts, or to understand what it is that you feel. I'm here to help you to do that. Counselling is about taking care of yourself, your wellbeing and your health. It's about making time for you. That's important in this busy, hectic life that we lead. 

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist which means that I work with you in a way that will best suit your needs. I help you to work through the problems that life can present whether this is in your relationship, family or work. I can help with boundaries and conflict within relationships as well as offering perspective on work and life balance. 

I believe that building a safe, trusting relationship together is crucial for therapy. I bring a caring, empathic, non judgemental attitude to the relationship. In this way you can begin to trust and share with me your thoughts and feelings. In doing so we can work through your concerns and issues together. 

You are the expert on you and I will do my best to understand and help you to move forward by providing you with tools to enhance your well-being. 

I use a range of techniques: integrating attachment therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness and a person centred approach. 

My first session

In our first session together we will have a chat about what brings you to counselling. Together, we can talk about any therapy goals that you have so that we may work towards these. They may change over time and I will offer goal reviews along the way. 

Most importantly here is that you take the lead. I work with you however best suits you. I offer a space where you can offload and sometimes this sharing in a confidential space is incredibly healing in itself. 

I will provide you with an overview of how we can work together over the coming weeks, as well as discussing your expectations of our therapy sessions together. 

I am flexible in what I offer. Some people feel that they would like counselling each week and others feel that every two weeks is fine. We can discuss what will best suit your needs.
