Welcome, my name is Samantha and I'm passionate about Counselling and Psychotherapy and in helping you . I'm one of the most experienced and qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Bradford and Leeds, not only having the recognised qualifications to help you (I have obtained a Masters Degree in Counselling), I also have over 20 years experience providing Psychotherapy/Counselling in North Bradford, to adults from different cultures, backgrounds and sexualities with varying different life experiences and difficulties such as stress, depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, trauma and PTSD.
I can help you as an older teenager, adult or as a couple and I will treat you as unique, with individual needs – because you are important….. and receiving correct therapeutic help is an investment in your physical and mental health, I strongly believe they are interlinked and I will work with you to identify the cause of your difficulty, as well as the symptoms so that both can be understood and resolved CLICK HERE to see how much this will cost
As already mentioned, I am really passionate about Counselling & Psychotherapy because I know it can work. Having received my own personal therapy over the years and working through emotional difficulties it's helped me understand what it feels like to be a client and the positive change that can occur, as well as experiencing how tough that can be at times too.
As a counsellor near Shipley and Psychotherapist near Leeds, there are many emotional difficulties I can help you with (this list is not exhaustive), so if you're unsure if I can help you please get in touch.

I could work with you in two ways;
1/ We could focus solely on relieving your physical and/or emotional symptoms (anxiety, depression/low mood, headaches, for example) which would help you manage day to day. Managing symptoms wouldn't remove them for good, but would help you in the short term.
2/ We could focus on relieving your symptoms (as above) as well as exploring the cause of the symptoms, this way of working is more longer term but would be helping resolve the symptoms for good, not just in the short term
