Some kind words of appreciation
“When I sought Samantha's help with my life long issues with food, I desperately hoped she could help me, but I didn't honestly believe that she would be able to. Thankfully, Samantha believed she could and I decided to put my trust in her. It was the best thing I could have done! The process took longer than it might have, as I didn't always do my homework. Working with Samantha is a team effort! Despite this, Samantha never once doubted my ability to change and gave her unconditional support throughout the process. In fact an appointment I nearly cancelled because I was so sure I couldn't change, turned out to be the most important session! Food no longer rules my life, I have reduced my weight significantly but more than any of that I am free of the eating disorder that ruled my life for so many years. If you want help, but secretly fear that you are beyond help, then call Samantha today. She will have belief in you, even when you have none in yourself, and can show you how to change your life!”
" Thank you Samantha for all your help, I now look forward to exploring many things again and being the independent person I lost nearly 20 years ago due to panic attacks. Thank you for everything, I would not hesitate to recommend you."
"Before my appointments my phobia (of vomit) completely controlled my life. I wouldn’t go out very often, missed a lot of school due to being worried about catching a bug. But since my hypnotherapy I hardly even think of it, I can go out without having to plan and think about the risks of catching a bug. I’ve been able to continue with my job, which I was close to quitting due to my phobia. I can’t even remember the last time I had a panic attack. Sounds very cliche but it really has changed my life for the better!"

“Thanks to Samantha I have managed to overcome things that I have been struggling with for years. I feel so much better in myself and feel that I can deal with so many things. I am so grateful to Samantha for helping me and teaching me some very useful coping mechanisms.”
"Samantha has totally turned my life around. I came to her not knowing where to start as life was really difficult and I felt in an awful place. She has taught me so much. I now have all the tools I need to carry on and live life in a far more positive way. I really don’t think I have ever felt so good. I am forever grateful."
"My initial visit to Samantha was for a 'mind spa' which was a present from my son. This was such a lovely and relaxing session that I booked further appointments to help me with long standing sleep problems (30 years). With Samantha's guidance, assistance, strategies and advice with the added benefit of a CD, I am now able to sleep at night. A big thank you Samantha."
"At 46 and for the third time in my life I suffered from depression that floored me. My GP prescribed anti-depressants but I felt no better after 7 weeks and was resigned to life in the 'darkness'. After 1 session (of BWRT), a mere 60 minutes, I left with a smile so big my face hurt. It was so dramatic, I now refer to Samantha as 'Magic Lady'.
As anyone who has suffered from depression knows, help is difficult to ask for and even harder to find without waiting for months. I have previously had counselling years ago. It didn’t work. In the past I also had psychiatric sessions which took many sessions and months off work. I am now completely off anti-depressants. I cannot express my gratitude for the life-line and help I received. Samantha made living worthwhile again."
"I thoroughly recommend Samantha as her help has resolved my long-term insomnia at a time I was despairing of sleeping through the night ever again. Her warm, calm professionalism instilled in me a sense of trust: I felt right from the start that Samantha knew exactly what she was doing and had the resources to shift this very deep-seated issue. I appreciated the fact that she is skilled in using hypnotherapy and BWRT - I felt that the combination of these two therapies was very effective in my case. I also liked the fact that Samantha gave me a wide variety of exercises to do at home, giving me the sense that my recovery was partly in my own hands. I now have a range of strategies that are helping me to continue sleeping soundly."
"I had suffered with terrible post shingle pain over the last two years, and at the time I first went to see Samantha I was on a lot of different pain killers. Over a few months Samantha taught me how to train my brain to look at pain in a different way. I was able to completely cut out or reduce most of the pain killers I was taking. Samantha also taught me self-hypnosis & I haven't looked back - I feel I have my life back again."
"Samantha really helped me to feel a lot more relaxed and calm about sleep, I no longer get stressed about it and my sleep is the best it’s been in months. I used to worry about my sleep a lot, but now it doesn’t even cross my mind. I am also able to deal with any worries or stress in the daytime a lot better and overall I feel much more in control of my feelings."
"Making the first appointment to see a hypnotherapist was scary but the best thing I've ever done. Samantha has changed my life completely. I've gone from an extremely overweight and depressed 67 year old to a much more confident and slimmer me. I can laugh again. Thanks Samantha for all your hard work. You've banished many demons and totally changed my eating habits. I would urge anyone who needs help to go and see her."
"I owe a massive thank you to Samantha for helping me deal with some deep rooted negative behaviours I have not been able to shift for a number of years. She has helped me change my thinking patterns and I now have a new positive calmer outlook on life and have finally been able to let go of some of the things that have been holding me back.
The world feels a better place after working with Samantha and I now have a good understanding of myself and the person who I want to be and have the tools to do it.
I would thoroughly recommend Samantha, she is kind, calm, understanding and professional with a huge amount of knowledge."
"I just wanted to thank you for your help with my fear of heights. I’ve just been on the Spanish equivalent of Go Ape. We went across rope bridges, climbing walls, zip wires all about 15 - 20 feet off the ground, my husband was absolutely astounded that I even agreed to do it in the first place, I loved every minute! I can't thank you enough."
“Hypnotherapy has really helped me. It’s changed the way I think completely - rather than worrying in day to day situations about someone being sick, whether it’s on public transport, around children or just walking through the street it doesn't even cross my mind now. It’s the best thing I've ever done! I now enjoy things like going on holiday a lot more because I don't have any anxiety beforehand - I can just enjoy looking forward to my trips.
Sam has made me realise that I'm not weird or strange and that I'm not the only person to have anxiety about sick! I would recommend Sam to anyone that has any kind of fear or anxiety.”
“Having suffered from a lack of confidence all my life I decided to give hypnosis a try with Samantha Davey. It has really worked wonders for me – not only has it completely transformed my outlook on life, I’m now far more relaxed and more confident in everything I do. I feel like a different person! I also sleep much better…. and no longer have nightmares, which were quite prolific. I really did not think that at the age of 76 I would ever get rid of these afflictions! The results have been far beyond my expectations.”
“I suffered with lack of confidence and the way I dealt with stressful situations, especially within my job. I now have a completely different outlook on life. I've learnt how to look at the positive side of situations and how to stay calm when I'm under pressure. I would 100% recommend Samantha to anyone. She's helped me overcome things I never thought I could and everyone has noticed how calm and happy I am now.”
“I no longer think about food all the time and feel completely in control of what I’m eating. Sam was fantastic to work with – I found her hugely attentive and sympathetic.”
“I attended sessions with Sam to overcome my fear of the dark, amongst other things. The change in myself is life changing. My fear of the dark was literally crippling me to the extent that if my partner was working late, I would be imprisoned in my own lounge, unable to go upstairs to the toilet until they returned home. As soon as dusk arrived, the curtains had to be drawn. Getting up during the night to use the loo was a nightmare as I often had to wake my partner up to accompany me. I only went out at night if I was accompanied by others. When my partner had to be admitted into hospital for an operation, I had to have all the lights on in the house in every room and only dozed on and off all night; it was exhausting!
Wow, what a difference Sam has made! I now leave the curtains open until I feel ready to close them and can look out and see the beauty of the garden at night. I visit the toilet in the night unaccompanied, and don’t need to wake my partner and turn the light on; I can walk over to the door in the dark and open it without fear. When my partner works late I am no longer a prisoner, I can walk around our home without fear, a wonderful feeling and freedom from something which has trapped me for the majority of my life.”
“I don’t binge on junk food any more….I now feel in control. I eat normally and stay a constant weight instead of bingeing/reducing food intake constantly. I’m no longer afraid of change… I try new things willingly and sail through situations that would have knocked me back before. The whole experience has been very positive and empowering.”
“Before I started hypnotherapy irritable bowel syndrome was to a large extent governing my life. I would like to say thank you for all your help and guidance. I now have the ability to control the IBS due to your expertise.”
“Hypnotherapy has had a significant impact on my life – I now feel confident to go out and to go walking for a day which was my goal. I no longer allow the fear of what may happen with my tummy to stop me planning and doing things. When I do get any symptoms or episodes (of IBS) I now deal with it much more calmly and easily which in turn helps to ease the symptoms. I feel I am now more in control and in tune with my body. My friends and family have all noticed that I am calmer and happier.
Your empathy, support and encouragement have made the whole process an exciting journey of discovery and healing. Thank you so much – I feel like I have got my life back and I’ve got a wonderful toolbox to help me through all sorts of difficulties I may encounter with my health, work or just life.”
“Before starting hypnotherapy I was so desperate I was on the point of being prescribed anti-depressants – this, to my great joy, has been avoided. As I had suffered insomnia for years I was not expecting to make such good progress so quickly and to feel so empowered by having strategies to use which help me to sleep better. I found you totally professional, insightful of my needs and very supportive and encouraging.”
“Hypnotherapy has helped change not only my lifestyle, but also my outlook on life as a whole…I have lost quite a lot of weight, and my attitude has also changed considerably for the better. Everything was very relaxing…I always felt safe and never vulnerable.”
“Before I had hypnotherapy I would get very stressed and angry at silly things. This was having a negative impact on my home life and was destroying my relationship with my partner. I found the sessions really helpful and it worked! No stress…no anger! It’s improved my relationship with my partner, from the point where we were ready to split up to being a normal happy family again.
Thank you for helping me sort things out in my head and making me happy again.”
“I never thought after a 30 year 25 or more a day habit that I would ever be able to give up smoking with such ease, but that is what has happened; I literally feel that I’ve never smoked – amazing!”
“I went to see Samantha for fear of flying and anxiety leading up to my holiday. I really enjoyed the hypnotherapy sessions and it was helpful having the MP3s to take with me and listen to in between sessions and while travelling. I was able to relax on flights – very happy to have enjoyed my holiday and the flying went well! I even slept on the way home across the Atlantic! Thanks for your help – very much appreciated.”
