Samantha Barnes

BACP Registered Counsellor 

Hello and thank you for visiting my page. As a qualified counsellor based in the Greater Manchester area, I specialise in working with adult clients suffering with mental health issues. 

I am an Integrative Counsellor passionate about working with individuals to support them to live more fulfilled and healthier lifestyles. I feel confident that counselling can support individuals in becoming aware of their own feelings and behaviours to understand their situations. I support individuals to make the necessary decisions to allow them to become the best they can be making more sense of the world around them. 

Integrative Counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. As an Integrative therapists I take the view that there is no single approach that can treat individuals in all situations. Rather, each person needs to be considered as a whole and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances. In my approach to counselling I use a Person Centred Approach with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
