Sam is a Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Certified Trauma-Informed Stabilisation Treatment (TIST) Therapist. She specialises in CPTSD, dissociation and early attachment injury. Sam has studied extensively with Janina Fisher in both TIST and Advanced Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Complex Trauma and Dissociative Disorders. She is also qualified to Level 2 in IFS, integrating this into her practice.
Sam helps to normalise her clients’ responses to traumatic experience as their innate, animal survival system in action. Her holistic, body-oriented approach, aims to treat the somatic, emotional and psychological elements of unresolved trauma. Such symptoms may lie deep within the body, often at an unconscious level, and which traditional talking therapies may fail to address.
Sam upholds the Sensorimotor principles of mindfulness, non-violence, organicity, unity, mind-body holism and relational alchemy, to promote physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.
