About Sam Peppiatt Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am passionate about helping people become who and what they want to be or simply get back to how they used to be. Things happen in life, which can leave us feeling insecure, out of control, depressed, stuck, alone, and other things too. You may have felt like you needed to stay strong, keep going or just keep busy in the hope that things will change and get better. Sometimes, we need something more.
Counselling and psychotherapy provides an empathic, non-judgemental, safe environment for people to explore their problems and issues. Counselling is not about giving advice or providing the answers, it is about working together to help you find your own way through. Clients often say they like having someone to talk to who is completely impartial and separate from their world outside. This means you have the freedom to talk about and make the changes that are right for you.
Examples of issues clients often bring are: stress; anxiety; depression; low mood; relationship issues of all kinds; bereavement; grief; self-esteem; confidence, historical abuse and trauma. I also work with clients who can’t put their finger on the problem and just want to feel better.
Clients often contact me saying:
My constant negative thinking is spiralling out of control
Work is stressing me out so much, I can't cope
I can't trust my partner anymore
I have not dealt with issues from a previous relationship and this is affecting my current one
have problems socialising, my anxiety stops me going out
I've suffered a bereavement and I can't seem to get over it
I've had a miscarriage and am struggling to deal with my emotions
I feel depressed and low most of the time and don't know what to do
I had a traumatic experience and feel stuck and unable to move on
I offer face-to-face counselling in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. Sessions are usually 1hr long and can be spaced apart depending on your needs. Because this is your time and at your pace, we have the freedom to move in the direction that is right for you and for where you want to get to.
I work in an intuitive and empathic way, giving you the time and space to explore your problems, working with you to find your own solutions. I provide a safe and supportive environment for you to grow and understand yourself at a deeper level. My approach is an integrative one with its basis around transactional analysis, person-centered, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioural therapies.
