About me and my therapy practice

Every client is unique, and my integrative training allows me to tailor therapy to the client's needs, whether that is the alleviation of depression or anxiety, improving relationships, recovering from trauma or for personal development. I value honesty, warmth, humour, professionalism and respect for self and other. I've been a practising therapist for over 15 years and I take pride in offering a high-quality, affordable and research-informed psychotherapy service.

Perhaps you have a specific problem or issue that wants attention, or a more general sense of unease or dissatisfaction with your life? You may feel in distress, overwhelmed by feelings, or as if life ‘isn’t working’. Problems may be showing up in your personal relationships, at home or at work, in changes of mood or outbursts of anger. You may also be experiencing physical symptoms such as: tiredness; disturbed sleep; eating problems; increasing your use of drugs or alcohol to cope. 

Psychotherapy or counselling offers you a safe, confidential space where you will be listened to carefully and without judgement. I’m authentic, warm and engaged. I won’t tell you what to do but I don’t just sit back and listen. We'll have a lively, interactive dialogue paying equal attention to your thoughts, feelings and body sensations. Making sure that you feel safe and at ease first, we'll cut through the chat to get to the heart of underlying emotions that block you from living your best life. Research has shown that what makes therapy successful is the ability to do this—but don’t worry if that sounds alien or uncomfortable, because it’s a skill that you can learn with me. 

My goal is to help you feel better, whatever that means for you. Brain science confirms that we are wired to heal, we just can't do that on our own. With the support of an attuned therapist you can feel happier, healthier, more connected to others and more effective in your work.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Sam. I love supervising and I've been trained in supervision by Joan Wilmot and Robin Shohet at CSTD. I work individually or in groups with counsellors and psychotherapists, but I also have cross-modality experience of supervising teachers and workers in a domestic abuse charity. I have supervised for MIND and Place2Be. I believe passionately in the importance of reflective supervision for everyone working in challenging roles.

As both therapist and supervisor my aims are to be experiential, relational and to facilitate transformation. Trained originally as an Integrative Psychotherapist, I am now working towards certification in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP):

“Through undoing of aloneness, and through the in-depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experiences, as well as new transformational experiences, the AEDP clinician fosters the emergence of new and healing experiences for the client, and with them resources, resilience and a renewed zest for life” (AEDP Institute).

This, as well as my learning from Joan and Robin’s training and the 7-Eyed Model, informs my supervision practice.

Please get in touch if you feel like we would be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you.
