Samantha Lee - Online Therapist | Inner Child Therapy Online | Counselling Nationwide

Hello and welcome. My name is Samantha and I'm a BACP Registered Counsellor based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

I'm the creator of "Me, Myself & I", the popular online Inner Child training courses for Counsellors and Author of “The Little Book of Help”.

Most importantly, I have an online practice offering therapy via Zoom Meetings to clients anywhere in the UK. From Rochford to Rochester, Southend to Land's End, online therapy gives you the choice to work with the right therapist no matter where you live!

So how can I help you?

I have a particular interest in helping clients who have lived through difficult childhood experiences which may still be affecting their adult lives and particularly relationships with partners, family and friends.

Is my problem "bad enough" for Counselling? I'm fine!

So, let me ask you some questions.

Are you the kind of person who others might look at and think you've got it all? Good job, nice house, great lifestyle? Yet behind closed doors, you often struggle with your intimate relationships, have a difficult relationship with your parents / siblings, and maybe struggle in your friendship group or at work with colleagues?

Are you the kind of person who usually tells everyone that you're "Fine", including yourself, when the truth is that actually, you're not really fine at all?

Do you sometimes look at your behaviour perplexed, thinking "why the hell do I keep doing that?" Yet, you just can't seem to stop doing "that" again, even though you know it's hurting you, and possibly the important people in your life?

Perhaps you feel helpless and overwhelmed, wishing another Adult would come and take over, one that's more "Adultier" than you because there are some days where you can just feel like a helpless child?

Maybe you go above and beyond to help others but when it comes to helping yourself, you don't like to “burden” people with YOUR problems?

Do you tend to put on a happy face to hide what's really going on for you underneath, because it’s easier than admitting you’re struggling?

Well, I can guarantee that you are definitely not alone. Life doesn't have to be that way and I may be the Counsellor for you.

It's been a tough couple of years to say the least, hasn't it?

I've seen so many people trying to put a brave face on things for a long time now - many trying to "Keep Calm and Carry On" whilst secretly feeling pretty awful.

But when you're not in a good place mentally, it can begin to feel like everything in life is starting to feel completely overwhelming and hopeless.

I'm guessing that if you're reading this - you might be one of the people who could be feeling this way and are wondering whether it's time to get some help that’s long overdue?

The trouble with living through all the awful stories around Covid and now watching on as distressing events unfold in Ukraine, is that we can find ourselves looking at other people's problems, comparing them to ours and thinking "I shouldn't feel this bad, there are so many people worse off than me"

It's daft isn't it? We guilt trip ourselves out of getting the support we need by comparing ourselves to others, and yet those others aren't you.

They aren't living YOUR life. They don't have your past experiences.

If how you are feeling is starting to affect your life, the people you love, your work, then it's time to get some help now, BEFORE you reach crisis point.

Counselling really can help you to work through overwhelming problems that feel too big to wade through alone.

You don't have to cope alone - Counsellor, Southend-on-Sea | Online Therapy throughout the UK

So many people have issues that family, loved ones and work colleagues can often know nothing about.

So many people hide their worries and fears because they don't want to "burden" people, they don't want to "upset" anyone and they don't want to be judged, especially if they feel they are repeating the same mistakes in life over and over again.

Perhaps one or more of the following statements may sound familiar?

  • You suspect that events from your childhood may still be affecting you
  • You’re having real problems in your relationship (again)
  • You have a difficult relationship with your parents
  • You often feel helpless and overwhelmed
  • You keep overthinking, worrying about everything, you've always been that way
  • People think you're confident and have a nice life but secretly, you feel inadequate and compare yourself to others
  • You experience anxiety/panic attacks that can affect everyday life
  • You can feel depressed/low in mood but you don't really know why?

If any of this sounds familiar and you’re exhausted from putting on a brave face all the time, then I can help you.

How can Counselling help you?

So how can counselling help? How can talking help if you’re having relationship problems, stress, anxiety, panic attacks, anger issues etc?

In my sessions, you'll get the chance to drop the brave face, stop pretending everything's okay and just feel the relief of telling me what it's really like to be you.

It can be a huge release to talk to somebody neutral about the things you struggle with. Not having to worry about upsetting them or being judged allows total honesty - honesty is the thing that can change everything.

When you can be truly honest about the things you struggle with in certain areas of life, you eventually gain clarity and understanding about WHY you have struggled.

This insight eventually gives you the confidence to make gradual changes that can have a huge impact. What kind of changes?

Finally understanding WHY you have held on to certain unhelpful views and behaviours from the past allows you to change how you view yourself and others.

It will change how you treat yourself and others.

It will give you new insight about your life experiences and relationships and the confidence to do things differently.

Together, we will get you back to a place where you feel like your old self and where life feels good and manageable again.

Be Less Stressed this year

Don't take my word for it - here some testimonials from past clients:-

After the first few sessions I knew Sam was the right choice , her understanding of your situation and the ability to make you unravel it all in your head is amazing . The coping mechanisms that you will learn can only help you go forward with your life. There are times when it is hard and you have to face up to some stuff that is really hard. Yes I have been in tears, I'll admit it, but what you get through the other side - it is an amazing feeling to have your Mojo back.

I have just finished with Sam after 18 months its time to crack on with life again. I cant thank her enough and I know she is there if I ever need her again " Paul, 53, Rochford

"Sam has been a fantastic help this year. I had experienced several different traumatic events that had built up on top of each other. I always felt that I was 'coping' but realised that my way of coping was just actually pushing things down and carrying on. Sam has helped me to identify underlying issues, work through them at my own pace and help me feel empowered to tackle them. Not only that but she has made me feel more confident about dealing with things that might happen in the future. Sam has a fantastically empathetic approach and has made me feel really validated. I am very grateful and would wholeheartedly recommend her." Helen, 40, Upminster

“I met Sam last year when I was at rock bottom and in a little over a year, she helped me to cope with it all and then how to understand it and move on from it.  From the very first session, I felt totally at ease to open up and let it all out.  It was easy to trust Sam and discuss things I had never spoken to anyone about or even understood myself.  I would recommend Sam 100% to anyone who needs help dealing with tough feelings or situations, past or present, and I cannot thank her enough for helping me overcome those feelings and understand how I can see good in the world and myself again.” Toby, 30, Southend-on-Sea
