My name is Samantha, I am a Registered Member of the BACP (Britsh Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) having completed their Certificate of Proficiency and a member of the British Psychological Society.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, using techniques from different types of counselling to support you as you continue your journey, I am at heart Person-Centred, drawing on techniques from Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Solution-Focused Therapy.
What this means for you is that I will strive to ensure a personal service to provide you with effective counselling depending on what you need from the session.
I have specialist experience in counselling individuals who have experienced abuse and trauma, both recently and historically.
A therapist brings much from their experiences in life, the knowledge I have gained may sometimes be useful; the wisdom I have gained is integral to my role.
My qualifications have been gained through the CPCAB (Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) which is a UK awarding body that is managed by professional counsellors, trainers and supervisors and approved by Ofqual.
I have also studied with the Open University to gain my BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Counselling.
