Please note: to protect confidentiality, names are not included.

l knew instantly l could work with Samantha. In total l worked with Samantha for two and half years. Therapy isn't about being given answers, it is about working them through with a therapist to guide you on that journey. What a journey... There were highs, lows and things in between. Samantha knew the places to explore always at the right time in just the most remarkable way. Her empathy is off the scale. There is no testimonial l can give other than that time changed my life. It is fair to say that through my time working with Samantha l would not be the happy, content and just comfortable with myself person that l am today. For that time l will always be immensely grateful.

I did not want therapy or to be with Samantha. Zoom was so easy to not engage yet she wasn’t. She somehow made the process not only barable but insightful less frightening and at times enjoyable. I’m glad I had you with me for my journey I couldn’t have done it without you in fact we both know I wouldn’t have done!

Thank you so much for everything. You are a great therapist and person. I didn’t think it would be possible to connect and open up about my deepest things over a screen. It was you that helped me. With all of my heart I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all you’ve done. Even though we only had a few sessions the impact was astronomical. I shall always remember when things clicked into place. I can now leave ok acknowledging feelings of sadness alongside being proud of myself!

Samantha has truly helped me get my life back on track at a time where I could not see any light in a dark tunnel. After therapy with her, I am experiencing life as it should be. Therapy helped me realise the human being I am and with that power I was able to make some changes. I would recommend Samantha to anyone struggling in all areas. Thank you Samantha.

I began therapy with Samantha at the start of the covid crisis during what was the lowest point in my life professionally, emotionally and psychologically. Having gone through numerous therapists in the past where it felt like we were just skirting around issues without having any structure or solution for dealing with them, I was very sceptical about beginning therapy yet again. I was struggling to come to terms with a dual diagnosis of bipolar, ADHD and addiction, and Samantha made me feel heard, understood, and most importantly seen for the first time in my life. Samantha balanced kindness, compassion, humanity and objectivity, giving me the support that I so critically required and tailoring her approach to my specific needs. She is extremely intelligent, insightful, professional and was able to quickly identify and cut to the heart of the issues that were troubling me. Through the work we have done together, Samantha has helped me to process past trauma, gain a better understanding of who I am, and identify what changes I could make to better care for my emotional, spiritual and mental health. Samantha has changed my life for the better and helped me grow as a person. I am eternally grateful to have met her and cannot recommend her more strongly as a therapist.

Sam was the second EMDR trauma therapist with whom I engaged to process a relapse of my trauma symptoms. Sam immediately made me feel listened to and validated my experiences and concerns. I quickly trusted Sam due to her demeanour and pace in sessions. I never felt that she sought to direct the manner nor pace with which I was disclosing my troubles and fears. Before I knew it, I had shared with Sam some of the most terrifying and deeply personal experiences that I had so closely guarded in over 3 years of previous trauma treatment. I am now 7 months post therapy with Sam, I am still managing much better than I have in the past 15 years and I believe this would not be possible without her professional and yet personable approach to EMDR therapy.

Sam is quite simply a brilliant therapist, and over the past 18 months her support, guidance and knowledge has been invaluable to me. What particularly stands out is her warmth, dedication, creativity and (where appropriate) her humour. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I received a therapy session with EMDR and fully credit the experience with helping me completely overhaul an area of my life. Sam was incredibly understanding, patient and empathetic which enabled me to feel that I could talk about anything. She really helped me to see things as they actually are, and not as I thought they were. I will be forever grateful.

I was new to therapy when I first met Sam, unsure of the process and uncertain of what therapy looked like for me. In the beginning, I was sceptical about whether a therapist could help me and, after our first few meetings, I decided that I didn’t really care for Sam. However, I decided to stick with the process and give therapy a chance. I’m so pleased I did. Sam always met me exactly where I was in each therapy session. She remained objective, but no matter how I was feeling she was always aware of what I really needed. Sam balanced compassion with the challenge of addressing underlying emotional issues, and, because of our work together, I feel much more emotionally connected and fluent in my everyday life. Sam’s support and encouragement saw me through the worst event of my life; she always prioritised my emotional and mental wellbeing. I will be forever grateful for her support. Sam is everything a person could ask for in a therapist: objective, supportive, knowledgeable, and compassionate. My life has changed for the better because of our sessions and I hope that others will also benefit from her experience. I cannot recommend Sam highly enough.

Sam completed an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy session with me. Her obvious knowledge and experience in working with trauma shone through, and I felt complete confidence in her ability. Sam was respectful of me at all times and worked with me to resolve my traumatic experience successfully. I would definitely recommend her as a therapist.
