Sams approach to psychotherapy is integrative, adopting a wide range of modalities though she is existential at heart: She tailors her practice to suit each client individually, working with their preferences. This could include CBT, or person centred, psychodynamic and positive psychology. Clients have experienced Sam as especially warm and approachable; she is passionate about supporting and empowering those within her care to make the changes they would like – to increase their experience of control and enjoyment of their own lives.
Sam works to provide a safe space to explore difficulties and is comfortable working on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, addiction, trauma, self- esteem, or that relating to a sense of identity and the search for meaning in life. She has particular experience working with the LGBTQ community and performers (professional musicians, actors etc.) Sam works collaboratively with her clients and emphasizes the importance of autonomy- working alongside her clients to find alternative responses to live more contentedly and fully. She is currently undertaking a doctorate in counselling psychology.
