Meet the Founder, Samantha Samuels MEd, RP

At Ashes to Empowered Therapy, our goal is to rise like the phoenix from the ashes that were meant to bury us. The phoenix, which has been a meaningful symbol in my own journey, is reflective of resurrection, renewal and rebirth from the most difficult circumstances. Through psychotherapy, we re-discover the power that has always existed within us to transform our lives from the inside out.

I am passionate about helping people from all walks of life heal from their wounds. Whether it is painful childhood memories, one or more major events, relationships, or a series of micro-traumas, trauma causes changes in the brain and body. This shapes us in subtle ways, many of which are unconscious and affect our self-worth and behaviour.  The stories we tell, define our lives in our own eyes and in the eyes of others. Different narratives lead to different future experiences.

The first step in healing is recognition that your past experiences may be influencing you in this moment in ways that you may not understand. What self-limiting beliefs have you incorporated into your story? I commend your courage in seeking a guide to begin your own metamorphosis. Regardless of what happened to you in the past, it is never too late start the healing process.

I believe that each person has all the wisdom they need to heal within themselves. It is my role to create a safe and confidential space for you to re-discover your values, needs, wishes and desires. You may discover hidden parts of yourself as you talk openly and honestly without fear of judgement.
