"I could work well with Samantha because, like me, she is a former soldier.
As such she could understand military terminology
and the typical life of a soldier. Samantha also has a robust style which is unlike
that of most therapists, and I felt safe
to express my views to her.
With her help I worked through some very unpleasant childhood memories.
Many of them returned spontaneously during our therapeutic sessions.
Once the memories had returned, they ceased
to have power.
As a result, I gained confidence that meant that, at long last, I no longer felt I had my
mother upon my shoulder criticising everything I did. In short, in the course of our treatment,
I grew up from a youth of 16 to a mature man aged 65.
Thank you Samantha, for your help."

“I am a Police Officer with nearly 20 years service who as a result of
some horrific incidents at work on
front line response ended up on long term sick with severe PTSD.
When I first started my sessions with
Samantha, I very much still felt in the grips of this awful disabling condition
but with her help, support and
wonderful open manner I felt able to safely talk about how I was feeling.
Her weekly sessions and training in
PTSD awareness she provided gave me the tools I needed to overcome so many obstacles.
I cannot thank her enough for me now feeling the best I have done for a year and a half. Thank you Samantha.”
