About me and my therapy practice

I'm Sam, an experienced and qualified integrative counsellor.

I'm here to support you if aspects of your life feel challenging, or if you have a sense that issues from your past continue to affect your life today.

Experiences you’ve had may have left you feeling anxious or alone; now is the time to get some support, to help you find your strengths and rebuild.

Despite having people who love and care for you, you might believe that sharing your feelings with them would overwhelm them or you worry that they’d judge you or see you differently.

I work with a variety of issues but specialise in trauma work as well as working with serious illness and its impacts incl. loss/bereavement.

Experienced in supporting survivors of childhood abuse, domestic violence and sexual violence, I understand how hard it is to face the ways in which these have impacted on you. You may feel 'different' to others, struggle with anxiety, isolation and feelings of shame or be unsure how to feel safe in new relationships.

Our work will help you find strategies to help you cope with some of that distress and then support you in safely processing the trauma that you've experienced.

Additionally I can help if you need space to work through a diagnosis of a serious illness. You might have a loved one with a life-threatening illness and feel that you need to be strong for them, whilst struggling to cope, yourself. Perhaps someone close to you has died and you are struggling to deal with the impact of this. You may (now or in the past) have caring responsibilities that have meant it’s been hard to focus on who you are and what you need.

Our work will support you to explore these issues, to move forward into a life that is fulfilling for you, however that might look.

I hold a Postgraduate (level 7) Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and am committed to ongoing training in the above issues.

Practice description

I believe that people are so much more than a label or a diagnosis. I'm interested in hearing about how you’ve experienced the world around you, including important relationships and events that have shaped you. I'll listen carefully and ask gentle and respectful questions in order to discover the strengths and resources you have inside you, working compassionately with the issues that matter to you.

We will build a safe and trusting relationship together, so that you feel able to talk about your concerns without being judged and so we can discover what might be lying underneath the issues that brought you to therapy.

As an integrative counsellor I draw upon a variety of psychological theories to understand how human beings develop, learn and interact. My focus will be on valuing and accepting you as the unique individual that you are (Humanistic), understanding how you have been shaped by your past experiences and how they affect you and your relationships (Psychodynamic), and exploring the links between your thoughts, feelings and bodily responses to situations (CBT).

I also draw upon neuroscience to understand responses to stress and trauma and how to work with these.

Working primarily online (video sessions and email counselling), either short term for an agreed number of weeks, or longer term, offers many advantages to you as a client including:

• You can choose the right therapist for you, rather than having to pick from those closest to you geographically.

• You can be comfortable in your own surroundings with no need to travel to a counsellor’s premises, and may feel safer and more at ease to talk.

• Physical disabilities or psychological difficulties are no barrier to you getting the support you need.

If you’d like to find out more about how I work then you can book in for a free 15 minute introduction call by emailing me at enquiries@fernbankcounselling.co.uk

My first session

I believe that the key to successful therapy is the relationship between you and your counsellor and our first session is at a reduced fee, so that we can take our time to explore your needs together and ensure that you are completely happy with how I work.

We’ll discuss what it is that you’d like to get out of our working together, but you won’t be expected to tell me everything about yourself and your feelings immediately. I understand that it can take time to build trust.

Although our initial session will include quite a lot of questions as I find out about you, these will be asked respectfully and gently and subsequent sessions will be more led by you, based on what feels important to you.

We will discuss the number of sessions that you might wish to have initially and we will revisit this as we continue to work together. We will also discuss what might happen if you need to cancel appointments and I will explain key aspects of my practice such as confidentiality and how I store and protect your data.

What I can help with

Abuse, AIDS/HIV, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cancer, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Cultural issues, Health related issues, Identity issues, Loss, Men's issues, Post-traumatic stress, Self esteem, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Trauma, Women's issues

Types of therapy

CBT, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Phenomenological, Psychodynamic, Relational

Clients I work with

Adults, Older adults, Trainee, Young people
