Welcome to alpebble


Based in Central London, Integrative Therapist Samia Quddus (MBACP) at alpebble, specialises in working with children and young people between the ages of 4-18 years integrating play and creativity to explore feeling states that might be difficult to express in words. Providing an empathic and safe space promotes expressivity which is important to feeling accepted, supported and heard. Samia also provides individual therapy for adults.

Her cross-cultural heritage has further encouraged providing access and awareness of mental health for BAME communities. Central to alpebble is the belief in providing healthy counselling. This is achieved via a non-judgemental and good relational approach where individual differences and backgrounds are respected. 

At alpebble the focus is on helping individuals draw on their own inner resourcefulness by 

enabling expression and encouraging self-discovery, to support emotional well-being.



Samia Quddus; BA (Hons) with QTS, PGCert, PGDip, MBACP
Fully Qualified Integrative Therapist

My approach to therapy is based on my level 7 postgraduate diploma training with a highly acclaimed and leading provider of mental health provision. Due to my training, I am ideally qualified to provide child and young people counselling as well as adult therapy. Training with an integrative counselling model has allowed me to draw on the strengths of various counselling approaches plus neuroscience, which is useful when analysing development in children and young people.


My cross-cultural heritage has further encouraged providing access and awareness of mental health for communities that carry a wider identity. I have published in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Children, Young People and Families magazine.

My practice with young adults and adults has also been informed by my counselling role at a faith and culturally sensitive non-profit organisation. I have worked with abuse, domestic violence, trauma, stress, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, self-harm and interpersonal relationship difficulties.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). 

COVID-19 Update: I am providing distance video counselling via Zoom to therapeutically support children and young people. With adults, I am also offering telephone counselling.

"Rising like a phoenix through the ashes,

it emerges polished, looking more beautiful than it did when it got edged of the cliff.

It rises a pebble, smooth and sleek.”
