I am an Integrative therapist which means I use various therapies and tailor the therapy to your needs, as we all are individuals and I feel an indIvidual approach offers the bespoke service clients require. Some people may respond well to CBT or DBT, others prefer a more Humanistic approach. The Psychodynamic approach works well when looking into our core thoughts and TA works wonders with communication. I work collaboratively with the client to get the best results for you.

Hello, I'm Sam. I'm a counsellor and hypnotherapist, working in a person centred way. I'm open, and honest, and I'm here to help you with whatever you need to bring. Since I first started training as a therapist, I could see that it was never going to be as simple as one size fits all. We are all individuals, and even though we have our similarities, we all live our own realities. Because of this I knew it would be important to study a wide range of therapies and techniques to custom a session as much as I could to each person.

Over the years most of the client issues I have encountered encompass loss and control in some way, shape or form. Many clients feel out of control, and helpless or in complete despair, and would like to be able to clear a pathway for themselves to work out a more manageable way of living with less anxiety. Clients want to be listened to, and for some that is a rare luxury as friends and family often have their own agenda. Regular reviews to reflect where a client is, in relation to their therapy journey are part of the therapeutic process and help to build trust and structure.

Do you feel unfulfilled, unhappy, unwell (Dr has given the 'all clear') or unsure why you keep reacting in certain ways? Together we can explore these concerns and the counselling journey will help improve your self-awareness as to the reasons for these emotions. Life can be hard and sometimes giving yourself 'time out' and the opportunity in a confidential, non-judgmental space to be open and honest with how you are thinking, feeling and behaving, will hopefully allow you to feel lighter and content with whom you are and have a positive impact on your future.

Sometimes in our life and when we least expect it we feel low and everything is a struggle. We do not realise that this could have been building for a while. We get stuck and everything is an uphill struggle, we do not know what to do and it soon becomes overwhelming.

Your well being is important to me and I will treat you with the utmost of respect. I will help you to achieve your goals.

Most of my clients come to me knowing they are not happy but they don't always know why. Sometimes it is because of the people and circumstances around them and sometimes it is because they keep repeating the same behaviours that are not producing a happy life for them. My job is to help people understand what it is in their lives that they are not happy with, or want to change and to imagine a life with the new changes in it. I work with the client to provide a safe, comfortable environment for them to explore what is going on for them and how they can make the changes to live a happy, fulfilling life.

If you have got this far you probably have an inkling that to talk about what is troubling you might help. Why not give it a try? Perhaps you are wondering how it works. The short answer is we work together to make connections between your past experience and your present life. It is as we become more aware of these connections that change can flourish. Why not take a step of faith and see where "talking about it" gets you?

This journey allowed me to unravel the complex emotions that kept me a prisoner in my own head for many years. Therapy set me free and allowed me to explore and understand the trauma of my childhood and the damaged inner child living inside of me as an adult. I was able to let go of my past and live a more fulfilling life. As I healed I decided to become a therapist and help people just like you.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
