I went to Sam hoping she could help me with several issues I was having.... anxiety about aspects of my impending wedding, fear of flying & the most deep routed of all was my 40 year addiction to chewing all the skin off my fingers to the point of bleeding!! Within 1 session I have not bitten my fingers again which is a miracle in itself....I grinned like a Cheshire Cat throughout my entire wedding day, no dramas whatsoever & rather than sinking several large vinos & diazepam down my throat for my honeymoon flight I actually looked forward to it & enjoyed it. The brain is an amazing thing & Sam has helped me in more ways than she will ever know! And she is just the loveliest, warmest
Person who you feel instantly comfortable with ? I miss going for my sessions as it’s always so calming & always walk out of her place feeling relaxed & happy.... couldn’t recommend her enough xx

I saw Sam for help with phobias. At an initial consultation, she explained how her therapy works. Her method made a lot of sense, and I felt she was someone I could trust and be able to work with.
I had difficulty actually getting to see her, so we conducted each session by FaceTime. This worked really well and I think perhaps I was more relaxed as I was in my own surroundings.
Not only has Sam’s therapy made a huge difference with my phobias, I have also noticed a significant improvement in myself generally. I am much less anxious, more confident, positive and feel in control. My husband has remarked that I seem happier and more relaxed.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Sam as a therapist.

My 12 year old son’s eating habits deteriorated over the last six years to the point he was barely eating anything.
We tried doctors, dieticians and psychologists but nothing changed apart from his anxiety reaching the highest point ever.

After our first session with Sam we understood fully how and why this was happening.

He still has a long journey ahead and knew we would not get an overnight miracle but his anxiety is minimal and he is eating a lot more and trying something new to eat every week. I think even he knows how to cope with it which in turn is making him happier as well as us.

Thanks Sam for all of your time and help.

I wish I had met Sam years ago, if I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Thanks Sam I still can’t believe I’m the same person who came to see you just a couple of months ago. ☺️

My 10 year old daughter has benefitted so much from Sam’s sessions after suffering from health related anxiety. After going through a very sad and worrying last term we contacted Sam for some sessions for over the holidays. Her sessions have made a remarkable difference to my daughter, who has now returned to school a very happy, confident and worry free girl. We have also been given strategies to help her in the future, which is great. We cannot thank Sam enough for all of her help and would highly recommend her sessions.

I booked hypnotherapy sessions with Sam after suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome throughout my teens and into adulthood. It had gotten to the point where it was having a significant impact on my life, I was missing lectures at university and calling in sick to work. I was scared to be far from home or go on nights out with friends. I took Immodium daily along with 2 types of medication prescribed by my Doctor. After a few sessions with Sam I was much better equipped to deal with the anxiety that I felt about the symptoms of IBS. Over a much longer period of time (and continual practise of the techniques I learned) my mindset gradually changed. I successfully weaned myself off of Immodium and both prescribed medications - a massive achievement for me. I stopped fearing my symptoms which in turn reduced their frequency and intensity. I've since used the same techniques to help deal with panic attacks, anxiety, and most recently, to equip myself for what was a very positive birthing experience of my little boy! An achievement made possible by many years' practice of positive reframing and focussed breathing.

I have suffered with bad anxiety for around ten years. On a good day, I would have around four anxiety attacks a day and on a bad day I wouldn't leave the house. I had one session of hypnotherapy on 20th June and haven't had an anxiety attack since. To say it has changed my life is a...
