As a therapist, my aim is to provide a secure, consistent, confidential and non-judgmental environment, to enable a safe space for expression of thoughts and feelings.
Hello, my name is Samantha, I am a qualified Pyschodynamic Counsellor, with experience in helping clients who have suffered with difficulties of :
I work with individuals 18+ on an open-ended basis. I offer open-ended counselling, as I believe that the amount of therapy needed is unique to each individual. I work on the basis that there is no agenda to the sessions, I like to encourage and allow my client's to talk and express what they wish, which can then be further explored. As a therapist, I do not offer direct advice or give homework, as I believe that from building a safe and trusting relationship, through exploration and the gaining of conscious awareness of any patterns or behaviours that may be linked from past experiences, that an individual can obtain the strength and ability to make their own choices and decisions on a more healthy and positive level.
Boundaries are vital within my work as a therapist, as I feel that this provides a safe, secure and consistent setting. The sessions I provide are on a weekly basis, on the same day, at the same time each week. The session duration will be 50 minutes.
In practice I ensure that I work ethically, complying with The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for good practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) in which I am a registered member of. The BACP is an ethical framework which is based on values, principles and personal moral qualities that is provided in practice and provides a dedication to good practice and client’s wellbeing.
At times, I realise that in life it can feel that you are on your own, and that no-one understands what you are going through, sometimes we keep a brave face on due to the feeling of not wanting to burden others. As a therapist I will provide a non-judgmental, safe space to listen, reflect and provide emotional support. I offer an external relationship away from distractions to focus on you. From working together we can aim to bring positive change to your health and well-being.
I believe that every individual is unique, what effects one person may not bother another. This depends on the individuals experiences and perceptions. Together we can explore what may be causing you concern and find a way to help manage this.
The modality I work with is Psychodynamic, whilst we will be exploring into what has initially brought you to counselling and what is happening in the here and now, we will also together explore into your childhood relationships and experiences, to see if any links arise on whether these may be unconsciously effecting your present situation, or choices you make. I feel that an awareness of this can aid towards positive change and growth within an individual.
Currently, I offer evening sessions on a Monday and Tuesday. My practice's are located in Couldson and Sutton, Surrey. Both are within walking distance from Sutton and Coulsdon train stations, and within easy reach of (Croydon, Wallington, Banstead, Redhill and Merstham).
My Fees are £50 per session.
