Based at Wakefield


Samantha has 15 years experience in secondary and primary adult mental health settings. She has a degree in mental health nursing.


She has worked on an acute male admission ward and in a Crisis and home based treatment team. Samantha has experience of working with individuals with acute and enduring mental health difficulties providing comprehensive risk assessments and treatment in a community setting. This post developed into providing a liaison service to the A&E department working with clients who presented in crisis and had thoughts of DSH and suicide.


In 2004 she commenced work in an early intervention into psychosis team providing assessment and treatment to individuals from the age of 14 to 35 years with first onset psychosis. Whilst working in early intervention Samantha commenced a Masters in Psychosocial Interventions (PSI). Samantha is passionate about working with individuals using a holistic approach as opposed to the traditional medical model, and the PSI course provided Samantha with the skills to work with individuals, their carers and families. Whilst studying her masters Samantha was intrigued with the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This led to her commencing her CBT training at the University of Sheffield in 2008; Samantha qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist in 2010. Samantha is accredited with the British Association is Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).


Samantha has experience in working with a full spectrum of difficulties including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), health anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), depression, low self-esteem, chronic pain and eating disorders.


Samantha is also trained and experienced in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).


In her spare time Samantha enjoys live comedy, city breaks and cooking, she has recently started learning to bake and has had many more disasters than successes! Samantha and her husband are suckers for a doggy sob story and have rescued a hound from the pound named Dean the Dog and a miniature Jack Russell named Edina Coco Chanel (Eddy). Samantha and her husband are not responsible for the names of their dogs.

Their experiments proved that Hoxb8-lineage microglia prevent mice from displaying OCD behaviors. Additionally, they found that female sex hormones caused more severe OCD behaviors and induced added anxiety in the mice.
