Happier, brighter & calmer
I chose Samantha to help me at a point when I felt I had no control over a series of long- term stomach issues. The anxiety these issues caused me seemed to add fuel to the fire - I was worried about what each day would bring and that made my stomach worse. Finding Sam turned everything around. I can't imagine the amount of preparation she puts in before each session, but based on her gentle questioning and exploration of my history, it has been clear that you and your needs are looked at in a very individual way. I feel so much better now... much more in control, happier, brighter and calmer. I cannot thank her enough.

A complete success!
Update for you about my dentist visit….it was a complete success! No dread, wobbly legs or run away sensations at all. Even when collected by the nurse and entering the surgery, then sitting in the chair - still all calm…. I never had a moment of anxiety or concern during the whole hour and quarter of the treatment. I left feeling very pleased with how everything had gone. Thank you very much for all your help and understanding with my problem. I couldn't have done it without you!

Highly effective
Samantha carries a becalming warmth and welcoming energy which invites you immediately into a feeling of safety and trust. She is professional and friendly, and I found her approaches to be highly effective, with demonstrated impact even after a short time. Her tenderness and attention to my intention were much appreciated, and I feel grateful to have discovered this practice. Highly recommended.

It's given me confidence
I was having hot flushes throughout the day I couldn’t control…they’d rocket up me, it was horrible…I couldn’t sleep through the night. You gave me techniques that worked almost instantly…it was incredible…I didn’t believe it would be that easy! I felt I suddenly had control…I was able to sleep…I feel I’m armed with a set of tools to get through life…it’s given me confidence! Your recordings were so special…your voice was very calming and soothing…it was amazing how you tailor made them to help me deal with what I was coping with each week…it was such a lovely experience. Thank you Sam!

By far the most progress
I’ve suffered from PTSD for many years and tried many therapies with little success. This has been BY FAR the most progress I’ve made towards being well in such a short time. Thank you Samantha for all your help!

Filled with gratitude
I went to see Samantha because of anxiety and some old trauma coming up. Samantha helped me to resolve the trauma relapses and taught me a fantastic range of methods to deal with my anxiety. I experienced her as an extremely proficient, well prepared and at the same time very compassionate and warm hearted therapist. I highly recommend her. Feeling filled with gratitude.

More at peace
Samantha is brilliant at what she does. Gentle, calm, precise with a wealth of intuition that I presume has grown through experience. I noticed subtle changes from session one and continued to feel more at peace with each session. I would highly recommend Samantha and her work.

Professional and hugely knowledgeable
Samantha was warm, approachable and sensitive from the very initial response to my email enquiry. She was clear with what my options were and created a calm, safe environment to start identifying and working on some old issues that I had thought were ‘forgotten’. Samantha was professional and hugely knowledgeable in her techniques which helped me to feel safe and secure. I’m feeling more in control of my life than I have felt in a long time. I will remain thankful and would highly recommend her work to others.

Childhood Trauma
I approached Samantha as I was interested in having BWRT for childhood trauma that was causing some issues. Samantha has a lovely calm, caring aura, and I immediately felt at ease as I explained why I was seeking therapy. I now feel more confident to be me and confident with my boundaries and the choices I make. If I need any help in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate in calling her. I highly recommend Samantha and her style of working. Thank you Samantha.

Deep gratitude
After a fairly short amount of time I noticed things shifting in my personal life - opportunities, doors opening…. in finding my inner strength or power I noticed things in my life falling into place which positively affected my relationships and career. It felt amazing…. my partner and even friends noticed the positive change in me. I can say now that I don't have the stomach issues any more that were really ailing me when I first saw you and my anxiety and confidence has improved greatly. I have a deep gratitude for how you helped me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A transformational shift
I wanted to reach out to you to say a HUGE thank you for helping me to rewire old subconscious programming. I now have solid evidence that I CAN override my ‘blue print’, something I was a little skeptical about at first! This has been a transformational shift.

I couldn't believe the changes!
I couldn't believe the changes Samantha has helped me to make in my life. She has facilitated the undoing of unhealthy thought patterns which have been with me for over 20 years. Samantha is patient, caring, magnetic and creates a safe environment. Thank you!

So much more relaxed
We’ve just got back from an amazing holiday and I can’t thank you enough for the flying therapy…. I was so much more relaxed and able to cope…. my wife said it’s the best she’s ever seen me on a flight. Thank you so much, we’re already planning our next one.

Samantha is kind, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental
It took me about 18 months to summon up the courage to contact Samantha. I had several issues - anxiety, travelling, fear of heights, sleep problems, fear of the dentist and traumas…some going back years…all going round my head at the same time and getting nowhere. What would I say to her? What would she think? All fears were unfounded as Samantha is kind, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental. Each problem was dealt with individually and with just a few sessions with a mixture of Hypnotherapy and BWRT (which is unbelievably amazing!) I feel I am a different person with a much more positive outlook. Don’t hesitate, as I did, for so long......Take that first step now and you won’t regret it.

After just two sessions I have seen brilliant results
Working with Sam has completely changed the way I feel about work for the better! After just two sessions I have seen brilliant results. Rather than dreading meetings or presentations, I have been able to calmly prepare and participate or present. Absolutely the best investment I could have made in my career, and Sam is just so approachable and easy to work with!

A lovely calm aura which put me at ease
I initially visited Samantha as I was interested in BWRT after reading up on it to be an effective therapy. This proved to be true mainly because it was delivered by Samantha, who is not only professional with a wealth of information but also with a lovely calm aura which put me at ease. After a couple of successful BWRT sessions, I then chose to have some hypnotherapy. Samantha is a natural hypnotherapist and her work has greatly helped me with obstacles/issues that I had. I was also provided with techniques and tips to carry forward with. I would highly recommend Samantha as an excellent therapist.

Confidence and Self-Esteem
I want to say a massive thank you to Samantha for all she has done to help increase my confidence and self-esteem. With her professionalism and tailor-made sessions she has helped me to get back to doing what I love and enjoying it... and boosted my confidence in all aspects of my life. I highly recommend Samantha, not only is she wonderful at what she does but she's a lovely lady as well. Thank you Sam for everything.

I actually feel like I'm living, not just existing, now
After having a long lonely dark journey with my mental health BDD anxiety (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) my treatment with Samantha has been nothing short of a miracle. Her professional, non-judgemental and sympathetic approach is phenomenal. Hypnotherapy and BWRT has worked wonders for me…. I actually feel like I'm living, not just existing, now. I would not hesitate to recommend the treatment to anyone suffering mental or emotional health conditions/situations it really works. Thank you Samantha, truly thank you.

Calmer, more confident
I came to Sam for problems with insomnia. My sleeping is now so much more soothing and smooth, but even better, many other things have improved too as we addressed fears and past events that have caused me suffering in different ways. Since the 6 session package I feel noticeably calmer, more confident and less afraid and fearful in general than I had become. What a wonderful help. I really recommend this therapy and Sam's talents and gift as a hypnotherapist. Thank you, Sam!

Sam's whole approach and professionalism throughout was excellent
I have had 3 sessions with Samantha to help with my life long nail biting habit. Her whole approach and professionalism throughout was excellent. Her calm manner and re-assuring tone always put me at ease. I no longer bite my nails and am fully aware that if I do so I am able to stop myself using the visualisations Samantha introduced to me. I would strongly recommend Samantha and hypnosis to anyone wanting to pursue this direction of help.

Samantha really helped me with a phobia of the dentist. Even doing one of the hypnotherapy sessions via zoom was still really effective. Would highly recommend!

BWRT - transformative!
Samantha really helped me deal with lots of things that were causing me stress and anxiety in my life, as well dealing with some trauma I had suffered in the previous year from experiencing two miscarriages. I found the experience to be transformative! I cannot recommend Samantha highly enough!

I would highly recommend BWRT
I completed a course of BWRT with Samantha, following many counselling and hypnotherapy sessions over the years with other therapists. The talking therapies have been helpful, however, I had reached a point where I didn't want to talk any more! I needed rapid, lasting results that meant I could move on with my life. After a detailed consultation, Samantha and I agreed that BWRT would be helpful. Her assessment was extremely detailed. I felt heard and understood throughout the process. The therapy is like nothing I have ever experienced! It is powerful and brings about significant, rapid change. Following therapy, I feel in control, empowered, energised and no longer haunted by past experiences that have held me back for so long. I would highly recommend BWRT..it has been life changing. Thank you!
Jo

Care, attention and patience
I would like to thank you Samantha for your care, attention and patience shown to me over the course of my treatment. Thanks to the techniques used the stress related gastro-intestinal symptoms I tend to experience have markedly reduced and I feel much more balanced. Not only that but I have also come away with techniques which I can continue to use to help keep on top of things. It has been an interesting learning journey.
Katie

Life Changing
Unbeknown to me, a trauma, years back, had affected every part of my wellbeing. My confidence was low, anxiety and stress levels were high, and I was struggling with relationships. I also suffered with constant colds, headaches and digestive issues. Through a course of BWRT and hypnotherapy, amazingly a lot of these issues have significantly decreased. I can think about the initial trauma on a much more untroubled level. My experience with Samantha has been literally life changing. I cannot recommend or thank her enough.
Vivienne

Samantha is not only very professional but has a demeanour that is calm and intuitive, making a safe & relaxing environment. Samantha has helped me work through some deep-rooted stuff.
I would happily recommend.

Help to overcome anxiety
Samantha put me at ease straight away and explained everything that we were doing, which helped me feel more relaxed. I have had numerous therapies over the past 20 years, but I can honestly say that none of them have been as successful as the hypnotherapy. I would definitely recommend Samantha to anyone who wants help to overcome anxiety. It's given me a fresh outlook on life.
Clare

I am free of the eating disorder that ruled my life for so many years
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!
Sam

I even slept on the way home across the Atlantic!
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.
Julie
Axminster
Changed my life
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!

Samantha made living worthwhile again
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.
Jo

I have my life back
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.

Seeping soundly
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 literally feel that I’ve never smoked – amazing!
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!
Donna

Thank you for your help with my fear of heights
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…I loved every minute! I can't thank you enough.
Sue

Best thing I've ever done!
Hypnotherapy has really helped me to change the way I think completely – I no longer worry about someone being sick all the time…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. I would recommend Sam to anyone that has any kind of fear or anxiety.

I found our sessions fun, positive and exciting
I’m now able to relax more easily, I feel a sense of control over my emotions and a sense of feeling stronger at my core. I feel free, lighter and more hopeful. I found our sessions fun, positive and exciting…creative and colourful. I feel very grateful for the experience…thank you Sam.

I now feel in control
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.

I have lost quite a lot of weight
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.
Phil

Thank you for helping me sort things out in my head
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.
Adam

The results have been far beyond my expectations
Hypnotherapy 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.
David

I am so grateful to Samantha

Samantha has totally turned my life around
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.

I am now able to sleep at night
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 I am now able to sleep at night. A big thank you, Samantha.

The world feels a better place after working with Samantha
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.

A different outlook on life
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.

Significant changes
Sam worked with my 16 year old daughter, giving her five sessions over a three month period. In that time my daughter made some significant changes.

The therapy is like nothing I have ever experienced! It is powerful and brings about significant, rapid change. Following therapy I feel in control, empowered, energised and no longer haunted by past experiences that have held me back for so long. I would highly recommend BWRT...it has been life changing. Thank you!

Care, attention and patience
I would like to thank you Samantha for your care, attention and patience shown to me over the course of my treatment. Thanks to the techniques used the stress related gastro-intestinal symptoms I tend to experience have markedly reduced and I feel much more balanced. Not only that but I have also come away with techniques which I can continue to use to help keep on top of things. It has been an interesting learning journey.

Life Changing
Unbeknown to me, a trauma, years back, had affected every part of my wellbeing. My confidence was low, anxiety and stress levels were high, and I was struggling with relationships. I also suffered with constant colds, headaches and digestive issues. Through a course of BWRT and hypnotherapy, amazingly a lot of these issues have significantly decreased. I can think about the initial trauma on a much more untroubled level. My experience with Samantha has been literally life changing. I cannot recommend or thank her enough.

A fresh outlook on life
Samantha put me at ease straight away and explained everything that we were doing, which helped me feel more relaxed. I have had numerous therapies over the past 20 years, but I can honestly say that none of them have been as successful as the hypnotherapy. I would definitely recommend Samantha to anyone who wants help to overcome anxiety. It's given me a fresh outlook on life.

I am free of the eating disorder that ruled my life for so many years
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!

I even slept on the way home across the Atlantic!
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.

Changed my life
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!

Samantha made living worthwhile again
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 have my life back
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.

Sleeping soundly
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 literally feel that I’ve never smoked – amazing!
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!

Thank you for your help with my fear of heights
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…I loved every minute! I can't thank you enough.

Best thing I've ever done!
Hypnotherapy has really helped me to change the way I think completely – I no longer worry about someone being sick all the time…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. I would recommend Sam to anyone that has any kind of fear or anxiety.

I now feel in control
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.

I have lost quite a lot of weight
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.

Thank you for helping me sort things out in my head
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.

The results have been far beyond my expectations
Hypnotherapy 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.

Samantha has totally turned my life around
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.

I am now able to sleep at night
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 I am now able to sleep at night. A big thank you, Samantha.

The world feels a better place after working with Samantha
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.

A different outlook on life
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.
