How can counselling help you?
Hello, I'm Samantha Ireland and I am a person-centred counsellor for the NHS, officially accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I specialise in counselling, motivational interviewing and a wide range of other techniques designed to help you deal with your problems, whatever they may be.
Research has shown that between 30-50% of adults struggle with emotional issues at some point in their life. At least one in four adults will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Counselling is proven to significantly reduce negative emotional symptoms and help you experience a higher overall quality of life. In addition to these benefits, counselling helps you understand the underlying issues, which is crucial to you experiencing healing, growth, and positive change.
Whether you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, substance misuse, trauma, self harm, mental health, abuse, or bereavement, I am here to help. I firmly believe any obstacles in your life that are preventing you from reaching your full potential can be overcome with the right support and guidance.
Why integrative counselling?
I specialise in integrative counselling, a combined approach to therapy which asserts that there is no single method that will help everybody in any situation. Every person is different and the issues you are facing must be considered as a whole for any form of counselling to be effective. My integrative techniques are tailored specifically to your individual needs and circumstances to provide you with the best possible platform to deal with the emotional obstacles in your life.
Quality care, guaranteed.
My years of experience working in the public sector have led me to develop skills that work positively with mental health. I have also been awarded numerous certificates in the field of specialist services. My accreditation by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) is highly coveted and a testament to my ethical approach under a nationally recognised framework.Find out more about my qualifications »
