"MAY EACH SUNRISE HOLD MORE PROMISE AND EACH SUNSET HOLD MORE PEACE"
Hi, my name is Sam Thorp and I warmly welcome you to my website. I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor providing one to one therapeutic sessions with warmth and empathy in my integrative and non-judgemental approach.
I provide a safe and confidential space for clients to explore their situation, acknowledge limiting beliefs and learn to trust and feel their experience in order to enable positive change. I am guided by my clients in terms of what they wish to explore .
I have spent many years examining how our conditioned minds, emotional responses and behaviour patterns correlate and I am passionate about supporting people to connect to their inner experience, allowing emotions to be fully acknowledged and tension patterns to be released. Therefore the therapeutic process often involves coming away from the conditioned mind and gently and compassionately experiencing what is held within us whilst utilising calming and grounding techniques.
