About Samara Lewis

Prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked as a clinician in the NHS. In this role I provided emotional support to   people with a wide range different presentations and life experiences, as well gaining an understanding of the pressure placed on those working in the caring professions.

Since retraining as a psychotherapist I have worked as an associate practitioner at the Rock Clinic as well as running my own private practice from rooms in both Brighton and Hove.

I am registered member of the BACP and a MUPCA accredited psychotherapist. I have full UKCP clinical psychotherapist memebership.
