About me and my therapy practice

Providing a safe, calm and confidential setting where you can explore any distress or difficulties you may be experiencing at present or in the past. Samantha provides a non-judgemental, one-to-one environment that allows you to share freely while you are being supported and listened to whilst you address issues such as:




Long term or life-limiting illnesses.






in addition to psychotherapeutic counselling, Samantha offers a bespoke tailormade approach to recovery from addiction.

Based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Samantha has had a successful career specialising in both addiction and mental health, supporting clients with complex and non-complex needs.

Samantha understands that living with an addiction can present you and your family with multifaceted and complex issues. Addiction can devastate families and it is often hard to support oneself and family members amongst the chaos that addiction creates.

Samantha strongly believes that every client and their situation is unique and must be treated as such. She is passionate that every client deserves to be understood. She therefore uses an Integrative approach to tailor her counselling and psychotherapy practice.

Samantha’s comprehensive approach incorporates:

Person-centred Approached (PCT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)
