About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Sam and if you're finding aspects of your life hard, then as a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor, I may be able to help you.

Perhaps life has left you feeling anxious or alone and you feel that now is the time to get some support; to help you find your strengths and rebuild. Even if you have people who love and care for you, you might believe that sharing your feelings would be too much for them or you worry that they will judge you or see you differently.

I work with most issues but I specialise in serious illness and its impacts, and in trauma work.

You may need some space to work through a diagnosis of an illness, and the changes this will bring to your life. You might have a loved one with a life-threatening illness and feel that you need to be strong for them, but be struggling to cope, yourself. Other people may see you as ‘the strong one’ who's always cared for others around you and now this burden feels too big for you to carry alone but you might be unsure how to change or do things differently.

Working with me will provide you with space and compassion to explore these issues, to establish what it is that you want or need and to lead a life that is fulfilling for you, however that might look.

I am also experienced in working with trauma; specifically with survivors of childhood abuse, domestic violence and sexual violence. I understand that it can be really hard to face the ways in which these have impacted on you; you may feel 'different' to others or struggle with anxiety, isolation and feelings of shame.

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

Practice description

My work is as a relational integrative therapist.

I'm interested in hearing about how you’ve experienced the world around you, including important relationships and events that have shaped you. You can expect me to listen carefully and to 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 and we can find out what might be lying underneath the issues that brought you to therapy.

I work primarily online (video sessions and email counselling), either short term for an agreed number of weeks, or longer term. This 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.

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.

My first session

I believe that the key to successful therapy is the relationship between you and your counsellor and so in this first session it’s important that we explore your needs together, so that I have an understanding of what has brought you to therapy.

We’ll also 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, Relationships, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Trauma, Women's issues

Types of therapy

CBT, Existential, Gestalt, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Phenomenological, Psychodynamic

Clients I work with

Adults, Older adults, Young people

How I deliver therapy

I work with most issues but I specialise in serious illness and its impacts, and in trauma work.

After 20yrs of working with people impacted by serious illness or health conditions, and their relatives, I can support you through this.

You may need some space to work through a diagnosis and the changes this will bring to your life. You might have a loved one with a life-threatening illness and feel that you need to be strong for them, but be struggling to cope, yourself. Other people may see you as ‘the strong one’ who's always cared for others around you but now this burden feels too big for you to carry alone but you might be unsure how to change or do things differently.

My first session

I offer a free introductory call (15 minutes). The aim of this is for us to get a feel for who each other is, so that we can see if I am the right therapist for you. There is no obligation for you to continue working with me after this appointment and I am always happy to suggest other sources of support for you if we decide not to work together.

I believe that the key to successful therapy is the relationship between you and your counsellor; in this first session it’s important that we explore your needs together, so that I have an understanding of what has brought you to therapy and that we get a feel for one another.

We’ll also 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.
