I work with women and help them to break through limiting beliefs, obstacles and issues that seem to be holding them back in life through counselling. Life's too short to be unhappy or unfifilled.

Online counselling sessions
Do you find yourself with limited time? Are you more comfortable having a counselling session in your own time and in your own home?
Online counselling provides you with a unique experience that is private, convenient and confidential. For individuals that feel ambivalent about going to see a counsellor or who may be uncomfortable with traditional models of counselling, may find online counselling more attractive. It has been found that online therapy is preferred by those who are uncomfortable with meeting face to face with someone about their issues or who are suffering from anxiety disorders, social phobias or agoraphobias (Gedge, 2009). An online platform is utilised in the counselling process that is HIPPA compliant. What does that mean? Keeping clients data/information safe and secure. Therefore, healthcare workers and organisations need to exercise best practices in three different areas: which are: administrative, technical and physical security.
Are you a nature person who feels that you experience more freedom and self expression when out in nature?
Walk & Talk Therapy offers you an immersive healing experience that can often break down barriers sometimes seen in traditional and or clinical counselling sessions. Samantha loves to take her clients out and around the beautiful shire of Mundaring for Walk & Talk Therapy. Clients have said to me that they found themselves feeling more comfortable walking & talking in nature and find it easier to open up and discuss their issues opposed to sitting in a room. I help women who often struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, loss and grief or limiting belief systems. Nature is intrinsically fantastic for the mind, whether individuals are troubled with issues or not. It’s wonderful how many issues can be resolved through the integration of nature, physical motion, and most importantly of all, the human connection.
