Samantha is a "Blue Light Champion"
“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 Sam, 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 Sam.” February 2019
