Sam’s Counselling Approach
My counselling style is empathic and insightful
I provide a safe environment in which clients can feel lovingly supported to explore their challenges and difficulties. I work with them to unfold their current challenge in a way that brings greater awareness, self-understanding and meaning to their issues. We work together to increase their own awareness of themselves in all their interactions, so they feel empowered around conscious decision making and can act from the vantage point that they can achieve from having the benefit of being a witness to themselves. With this increased skill they can make choices based on self awareness around their own needs and act in their own lives with self love and understanding.
Empowering individuals to embrace all of themselves with loving witness
I use a blended approach that has been borne out of years of working with clients, and I incorporate a method called Process Oriented Psychology. This means I do not start with an agenda, and work with the client’s process without a judgement around where they should be going, and what they should be doing. The client’s process itself often contains intelligent information and this approach seeks to unfold what is happening in order to bring into consciousness that which is less conscious. This results in a more empowered awareness for the individual.
“Effective counselling can bring increased self awareness, empowered choice making a life with more joy” Sam Adkins
Who can I help?
Children and Teenagers
I work with children and teenagers helping them deal with anxiety, stress and social difficulties that can arise in the school environment and in the playground. Transitions when changing schools can be challenging for some children and I can help those children support themselves and become more resilient giving them tools to use in future situations. I often work with those that have experienced bullying and counsel those as young as 4. As I am also an experienced Homeopath, I can also offer homeopathic medicines because when counselling is combined with homeopathy, it results in a very powerful combination often reducing the number of sessions required to see significant changes in an individual’s current difficulties.
Adults and Couples
I work with adults with any difficulties they have but specialising in those suffering from anxiety and those on anxiety medications who would like to find an alternative way. I also work often with those suffering from long term illness who have tried so many modalities and I use my unique approach to determine what else is holding them back from being able to recover and get well. I combine Homeopathy and Counselling in a powerful approach that facilitates wellness.
I am a qualified executive coach from an ICF accredited course. I work closely with individuals and executives to build a long term trusting relationship to support you while you find your way and support your teams and departments. A skilled coaching session with someone you trust can be just what you need to manage conflict, change, teams and processes and take the big strategic decisions in working life. I also work with high flyers and CEO’s who need support balancing work and home life and those approaching significant work-life transitions such as changing direction, changing companies, and retirement. If you would like to find out more about how we could work together, call me on 0420 800725. Pricing varies depending on scope.

THE AUTISM TREATMENT PROGRAM
Combining a three stage treatment approach for effective Homeopathy
Homeopathy can be used highly effectively to treat children on the Autistic Spectrum.
