Samaria Fanus children young people adolescent counsellor black therapist

Hello and welcome! 


Mental health is being spoken about a lot more and I am a big supporter of giving people space to talk about their experiences without feeling judged or worried about what others may think. Talking is an excellent and helpful way to challenge and change your thoughts.

I am CPCAB-qualified therapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a Person-centered counsellor, I focus on providing you with a safe space to speak openly about your feelings in a non-judgmental environment. My foundation and grounding are Person-centered; however, I work using various therapy models. Everyone is unique, and I adapt my style to fit your needs. You are the expert of yourself, and through talking, exploring your thoughts and feelings that may be weighing on you. I will support you in identifying any challenges you are facing to help you gain clarity on your journey in life.

I work with all ages from preteens to adults. I have worked in schools with Year 7's to Sixth formers. I have also worked for various charities, including Mind. My previous experience in an adult mental health team for sixteen years has provided me with excellent knowledge of adult and adolescent mental health services, having a sound understanding of how they work, which gives me a better insight into their systems and processes.

Starting your journey

Reaching out for support can be scary and difficult; if you are wondering how counselling could help you, or should you have any questions about the process, I am happy to offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to discuss your next steps.
