Heart Centred Psychotherapy & Counselling in Shipley UK, Online and International
From Surviving to Thriving
I’ve provided Inclusive Counselling & Psychotherapy to many diverse Adults and Couples of West Yorkshire for over 20 years and I’m really passionate about my work because it can be life transforming, from your outlook, perspective, thoughts, feelings and behaviours, helping you become your best version of you, whatever your needs and goals.
If you are quietly struggling with how you feel and think, you’re regularly stressed, fearful, angry, low in mood/depressed or uncomfortable in a relationship, maybe you’re recognising certain patterns in your relationships, or you’ve been treated badly in your past / experienced some form of childhood mistreatment and you can’t escape the memories/feelings/thoughts as much as you try.
If you can identify with any of these or there’s something else, I invite you to get in touch, I’d really like to help you not just survive but thrive.

How I Can Help You
As an Online Psychotherapist near Leeds and Counsellor in Shipley, proving Counselling in Shipley UK Online and Internationally, how I will help you will be a life long investment in your mental and physical health both proven to be interlinked. I also provide Relationship Counselling in Shipley UK .
It takes great courage and strength asking for help, it can be nerve wracking thinking about talking to someone you don’t know as well as it feeling a pressure choosing the ‘right’ person to help you. I don’t underestimate how difficult this can be, so I offer a free 15 minute telephone or Zoom meeting so you can meet with me and ask me any questions to ease any concerns you have. You can contact me through social media, Whatsapp, text, email or telephone call to arrange this, my contact details are at the top of my website.

As a Counsellor in Shipley UK, Online and International as well as Relationship Counsellor in Shipley UK, Online and International, I’m really keen on what’s called
Psychoeducation. This is where I will
regularly share with you in our work together, any information or knowledge about your experiences and symptoms to help you understand, manage and heal. This way of working is empowering by increasing your awareness, helping you make changes and heal. Feedback from clients has informed me it really helps.
I would never label or pathologize you (treat you or your symptoms as abnormal), and I respect that you may have a diagnosis that they may like, which helps in some way (I am aware of the different diagnosis). We would take this into consideration in our work together.
As an online Psychotherapist Leeds, Counsellor Shipley UK and International, providing counselling in North Bradford, some symptoms I can help you with are: fear and overthinking, feeling low, unconfident or negative about yourself, anger, difficulties in relationships, harming yourself, being harmed by others as an adult or child, a reliance on alcohol/drugs/sex/food/exercise/ etc.
Prior to my training, I began having my own long term therapy, which is really important, as is regularly checking and questioning my own thoughts and unconscious bias. This in depth personal development, along with my qualifications, experience, adhering to BACP’s ethical standards and quality monthly supervision, is really important in my ability to help you.
Since 1999, I’ve been training and working in West Yorkshire. I’ve worked for many years in the NHS as a Staff Counsellor and Adult Mental Health Therapist, and in the last 16 years in Private Practice.

“I have been working with Samantha on and off since 2014 – always picking up our sessions again when I hit a personal crisis or a crossroads in my life. Recently I started again, committed to challenging long-standing patterns of thought and behaviour while my life is in a good place. I cannot recommend her enough. She has helped me move from a very dark headspace to the strong woman I am today. And the lightbulbs in my head just keep coming. Invaluable.”
Jen, Bradford (2020)
“I really am so grateful for your help, it has literally changed my life!”
Ellie, Leeds (2019)
“I’d just like to thank you again for your guidance over the last few months. You’ve been so kind and patient with me and you’ve really helped me to understand myself and the reasons I feel the way I do. I think I’ve still got a way to go and thanks to you I feel I can build up the strength to react differently when faced with certain ‘triggers’.”
