Samantha Friend D. Hyp KCH is founder and practitioner for Kent Therapy, running a private practice in the borough of Tonbridge and Malling.
At Kent Therapy we believe you are not alone if you have entered an unfamiliar time of your life. Unwanted thoughts and feelings are a temporary thing, like the weather. Storms pass and fair weather returns.
Some days we need our raincoat, and sometimes we have to dance in the rain.
"I feel so privileged to be trusted with a clients therapeutic journey and travelling alongside with them. We work together in harmony to make changes and bring about inner peace. As a therapist my role is to empower you."

"Samantha has a kind and calming influence who's care of you as a person shines through. She instantly put me at ease and I was always able to relax in her company, knowing that she would be non judgemental and accepting of all things. Samantha is someone who cares for the person she is treating whilst caring about the therapy she is giving. She is truly the kindest soul".
Gina B, Paddock Wood.
"Samantha is a truly wonderful therapist, who has a calming and caring manner. Her warmth of character is obvious from the moment you meet and she immediately relaxes you. She is extremely knowledgeable, practices a variety of successful techniques and is hugely professional. I cannot recommend her highly enough".
