About me

My approach is a combination of Hypnotherapy, EMDR, NLP and Time Line therapy. My experience has shown that these modalities together uncover the root cause of a problem, whilst facilitating change by creating a better understanding of ourselves and behaviours. This understanding then creates the change required to replace unwanted habits, thus enhancing our output and performance.

Bad habits are like weeds, hypnosis essentially kills the weeds whilst at the same time planting seeds of knowledge in the cleaned up fertile ground which is the subconscious mind.

To defeat fears and phobias I have found I get the best results using the timeline model. This form of mental detox is extremely effective at removing the negative and debilitating emotions surrounding events and situations essentially triggering the client’s fear. This technique can also be applied content free meaning the client does not have to experience the emotions and events of the root cause.

My experience

I have been an NLP Practitioner since 2006 and a Hypnotherapist since 2011. Initially studying NLP/Hypnotherapist as a communication tool to help my development as a Key Account and Business Development Manager in Pharma Sales. After qualifying, my career took off and I was achieving top sales performer year on year even though I had no previous sales experience, alongside this I was presenting to 200 delegates at a Dermatology Conference in Miami

Experiencing first-hand the benefits both NLP and hypnotherapy provided, I decided to teach the skills I had acquired, at first to friends and work colleagues, eventually running retreats at home in the UK and Thailand.

My own experience with Anxiety

My life was great, I was top sales performer in the country, my coaching practice was growing, I was in a loving relationship and had an amazing group of friends, but then in 2013 I started suffering from low mood and panic attacks.
I could no longer leave my house due to my anxiety, and I fell into deep depressions which led me to some very dark places.
After numerous trips to my GP and a cocktail of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications which didn’t help, I hit rock bottom. So on the advice of some of my peers from my therapy network, I sought help through Hypnotherapy and talking therapy.
Thanks to this, I have been back and fighting fit since June 2017, and with no medication.
Once I got the right treatment and had extensive therapy I was able to uncover and deal with the triggers underneath my mental health. This then leads me to question why these therapeutic modalities aren’t more mainstream, as the medication I had been taking was clearly just masking and exacerbating my situation. Therefore I changed career and have been doing this full time since. It’s now my mission to make Hypnotherapy mainstream

Sam had been recommended to me by my best friend and I am so glad that I reached out to her. After 15 years in a relationship and 7 years of marriage things started to breakdown and I was unhappy and very unsure on how to deal with and process this. Throughout my sessions, Sam was able to help me identify key areas to work on which has assisted in the navigation of my relationship status and to understand my thoughts and feelings and how to effectively communicate this. Sam made me feel at ease from the very beginning which made the sessions run effortlessly and not feel like therapy at all, she also provided a great recommendation for a therapist for my husband too. With Sam’s assistance I am much happier, emotionally stronger and able to move on with the next stages of my life confidently and I will continue to use her support and definitely recommend her to anyone.

Victoria (London)

I have been seeing Sam since July following a time in ITU after contracting COVID 19 initially to help with the Trauma and recovery from being in a coma for 8 weeks. I can honestly say she has had the best effect on my overall mental health and recovery even my Husband and Sister don’t want me to stop seeing her ever!

GP (London)

I went to see Sam as I was looking for NLP to help support my fitness goals and choose healthier options when pushed for time at work. After 4 sessions she uncovered what was really behind my food cravings and helped me understand how to move through these issues
Joanne (Hertfordshire)

I entered a period of my life when I wanted to make some serious changes, but I was struggling with motivation, any kind of structure and general self-sabotage. I couldn't seem to make things happen and I was feeling very weak, knowing I had some issues of my past that still needed dealing with too. I started seeing Sam after finding her online and I'm so happy we connected, from the very first meeting things already started to feel easier. I was really happy to have her support especially when things took a very sudden turn for the worst for me and Sam quickly adapted her approach to accommodate the traumatic stuff that was happening.
I found that Sam really taps into who you are, she can make you think of things in a different way and when I left each session, I felt uplifted like I was making progress. Sam also took much time to create recordings for me to help me sleep and tailored them to include things that would make a lasting impact. I will always be grateful for Sam's help during a very tough time. It never felt like therapy, it was like talking to a familiar friend, I always felt at ease and trusted Sam and her advice. Sam is clearly very skilled and I was happy to recommend her to my best friend, who has also benefitted greatly from her sessions. I now feel a much stronger person and Sam helped me get here, she truly is an expert in her field.

Chantal (London)

I had some NLP with Samantha as I had reached a point in my carrier where I was feeling stuck and unfulfilled I was also having some dark moods and felt a little lost. I was very sceptical of any form or therapy but I was delighted how she mapped out a plan and addressed the underlying issues in very few sessions. In the space of 3 months not only was my carrier back on track I had also been promoted and kick started my fitness routine, started dating and now have a girlfriend! I would definitely see Samantha again, in fact I have scheduled a yearly mental detox/MOT with her.

Sam is a credit to her profession,

I was able to contact her via a family member in a moment of complete crisis and her steady methodical approach throughout the sessions has taught me how to understand the issues that I’m dealing with and how to deal with them going forward.

I’ve made huge steps to regain confidence and control my anxiety levels and although I still have a few more steps to take I’m now heading in a positive direction and fully expect to return to a happy and enjoyable life.

One word of advice to anyone that decides to seek Sam’s help, follow the instructions and do as your asked, may seem completely crazy at the start but will become clear as time goes on.

Thank you Sam 🙏



"I worked with Samantha for 6 amazing sessions which included hypnotherapy and EMDR. Each session included a recording of the hypnosis which I could listen to between sessions which made each session more powerful. Samantha is very well trained in these methods and she is professional and lovely to work with. I would highly recommend her " (Marie, London)

Got in contact with Samantha at Greenwich Wellness, looking for an EMDR practitioner after experiencing ongoing trauma responses following a choking incident.* Sam was fantastic; she guided me through the whole process with a great deal of professionalism, sensitivity and kindness. She made sure I was comfortable with the work we were doing at every stage and even always checked in on how I was doing outside of our sessions. I met her in person in Greenwich and online and found both contexts really easy to relax into - I always felt transcendentally calm following them. Progress was fairly sure and steady, and the symptoms which had been moderately debilitating for months were alleviated week by week, and are now minimal to non-existent - through just 5 sessions, 2 of which utilised EDMR, and 2 hypnotherapy. I would highly recommend working with Sam to anyone with some life-affecting nonsense to flush out. She is an excellent therapist and a right laugh.
