Samantha Walton

Psychotherapist, Counsellor & NLP Practitioner

Sam is a fully qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and NLP practitioner. She is a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP) and has a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Sam’s aim is to help you make sense of the past, live in the present and have hope for the future in ways that are meaningful to you. Painful situations often have their roots in the past and she hopes to assist you to uncover hidden links and understand your own patterns and responses to your experiences. This may involve looking out for areas of “stuckness” and transitions which may be destabilising for you. This collaborative process will enable you to grow your internal resources needed to restore balance, purpose and vitality to your life.
Trained in the relational approach, Sam uses the counselling relationship as a vehicle for healing, learning and change.

Incorporating other therapeutic models, Sam will see you as a unique individual and will work with different techniques to suit you. For some clients she may use aspects of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), time line therapy and creative processes.

Sam is trained to work with the complexities of couples work, both online and face-to-face.
