Hello, my name is Sam and I am a fully qualified, registered and accredited Psychotherapist working from the Midlands. I also work as a Clinical Director at a South Birmingham based mental health charity and offer clinical supervision. I am passionate about psychotherapy and the work that I do, and believe strongly in its capacity to heal and help people work through painful, traumatic and troubling life events. I am committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional well-being; something that I feel is often over looked. My aim is to provide people who wish to access my service with safe, ethical and professional psychotherapy, where together we can find a way forward that feels right for you. I work with individual adults, adolescents, and couples.
The aim of psychotherapy is to provide you with an opportunity to work through difficult issues in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. You may chose to bring to therapy issues that involve areas of your life which you feel troubled by, either in your personal or professional life. Some issues brought to therapy may involve low self esteem and confidence, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, work related stress, bereavement, loss, abuse, rape, identity.
How I work and what therapy might be like with me:
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I work with people to help them to feel more whole and to enable them to experience life in the fullest way that is available to them.
The way in which we will work together will depend on your individual needs and the issues that you bring to therapy. In the therapy work, we may look at your past and discover how this impacts your current life and relationships. We may develop a relationship which enables you to gain trust in relating to others. We may look at ways we can work at reducing your need to behave in ways which are destructive or unhealthy to you and others, or the work might be about reducing your tendency towards anxiety and depression.
What is unique about the therapeutic relationship is the availability of another human being, who has no preconception of you and no personal agenda, other than to be in relationship with you and be helpful in guiding you in your right direction.
