She is experienced in helping people with mental illness and/or personality disorders as well as other co-morbid difficulties including substance use, affective disorders and cognitive impairment.

She is a qualified dialectical behaviour therapist and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) therapist.

Samantha specialises in working with trauma and supporting people in processing what has happened to them and moving forward towards a brighter future where they can feel safe and content. She will offer evidence-based treatment that is tailored to individual needs and delivered in a style and at a pace that is comfortable for the client. She offers online therapy and aims to create a safe forum in which the client can explore their difficulties and make sense of what has happened to them.
