Sam Simpson is a speech and language therapist, person-centred counsellor, supervisor and trainer (www.redefiningstammering.co.uk) living outside London, England. Sam has a particular interest in disability studies, stammering activism and what stammering can teach us about ourselves and the world. Together with Carolyn Cheasman and Rachel Everard, Sam co-edited Stammering Therapy from the Inside: New Perspectives on Working with Young People and Adults in 2013, which set out to enrich professional accounts of contemporary stammering therapy by including clients as co-authors of therapy knowledge. Together with Patrick Campbell and Chris Constantino, Sam co-edited Stammering Pride and Prejudice: Difference not Defect in 2019. Combining personal narrative, art and disability theory, the book documents how society has historically disabled people who stammer and the diverse ways in which people are creating novel and exciting understandings of their speech. In her free time, Sam enjoys walking her dog, theatre and mindfulness meditation.
