Don’t just take my word for it! See what some of my clients have to say…
“When choosing an Executive Leadership Coach, I remember thinking how much choice there was. However, I knew I wanted someone who was reliable, professionally trained and accredited and a Coach and who truly cared about supporting me to become the best I could be.
From my initial Discovery Call Samantha really helped me to feel relaxed, listened to what I needed, and we mapped out what my challenges might be and how coaching could help me. She also gave me time to consider what I wanted and never pressured or ‘sold’ to me.
I also was really drawn to the fact that although Coaching isn’t therapy, Samantha is also qualified as a Psychotherapist and this showed me that she not only understands her clients and their challenges on a variety of levels, but that Samantha is a credible and professional practitioner with bags of motivational energy and a personable character!”
“Within the coaching, Samantha would often remind me that there was more to me than my career and she was right! My relationship with my partner had suffered, I burnt the midnight oiI and was unable to put away my phone and laptop away and even friends and family started commenting on the fact that they never saw me anymore.
Since seeing Samantha for coaching, I have become more aware of the importance of self-care, I have found ways to create a healthy work/life balance which work for me! I have found out who I am and what lights me up in my personal life.
As a result of my coaching experience, I have said goodbye to burn out, overwhelm and stress and hello to more freedom, balance, health, and happier relationships both with myself, my partner, friends and family. Thank you, Samantha”
"From my very first session with Sam, she made me feel comfortable, and her friendly attitude made it so easy to open up about my personal life. My life coaching sessions with Sam were around finding my life partner and what I wanted from a relationship.”
“The energy from my very first session was incredible and I could see how much Sam was behind me and my choices, and how much she believed in me. As per her recommendation, the day after my first coaching session I put a vision board together. Just three days after that I met my partner completely randomly! Thank you so much to Sam for listening and guiding me.”
"Just having that one hour of coaching every fortnight for myself has been the space and time I've needed to reflect, share and explore in confidence, to look at things from a different perspective or to relax and take time out for myself for self-care which I've now learnt is a necessity not a luxury."
“However, Samantha was always confidential, focused and professional. She helped me, to breakthrough through my fears and challenges by helping me to re-frame my thinking, perspective and mindset and she even asked me to pause to acknowledge and celebrate my success and achievements”
"However, after a while I started to miss the buzz of also having a career and I knew I wanted to return to work but lacked the clarity and confidence to do it. There was also the challenge of thinking could I have it all? However, Samantha helped me to explore what was holding me back, how I could harness my potential and my existing skills, how to build my confidence, how to successfully combat my insecurities about the competition and comparing myself, and how I could begin to take action and really start to make my goals a reality”
“Our industry had been hit hard by the economic impact of COVID-19 and I needed some coaching to support me through the changes, uncertainty and challenges which were happening. I also had to make some very hard decisions and Samantha’s coaching support was second to none.
“At University I had experienced all the hallmarks of procrastination, future career anxiety, poor time management, perfectionism and low confidence. However, after working with Samantha, I have found some great ways to manage my time more effectively, to overcome feeling overwhelmed and to focus on progressing forwards rather than being a perfectionist.
My daily motto is also to start to live more fully and I am also on the road to exploring and establishing my future career plans with motivation and excitement”
“After experiencing the same status quo for a long time, I wanted to find something that really excited me! At first it was daunting, but Samantha instantly supported me to feel at ease as we explored what my values were, what excited me, my transferable skills and which careers I was drawn to and how I could make the transition from one career to another and to know that change is absolutely possible! I feel positive, motivated and enthused to know that I am on my way to fulfilling my goals”
Samantha helped me to successfully explore and develop my own leadership confidence, presence and identity, leadership qualities and helped me to navigate leadership challenges so that I not only developed my own confidence but also the trust and motivation within my team”
“Working in a cutthroat competitive industry has its pros and cons. On one hand I was excited by the energy, the dips and the thrills and on the other hand, behind closed doors, I was constantly comparing myself to others professionally and personally and I felt as though I had to run a race I just couldn’t escape. Within the coaching, Samantha really helped me to focus on my own goals, action plan, skills and achievements. She helped me to understand why I was comparing myself to others, my triggers and supported me to change my perspective, tactics and mindset.
Now I am focusing on myself and running my own race (rather than someone else’s!)
You’ve seen this in the movies time and time again, well, if you work with Sam that could be your real life! Sam believes the sky is the limit and will work with you to get there! Always supportive, creative and so approachable, she’ll make you feel at home from the moment she says hi, being your best cheerleader until you’ve reached your true potential and are living the life you were destined to, personally and professionally. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Work with her, now!”
It was very helpful to have someone interested in me and my business who would listen to the challenges that I was encountering in driving my business forward. She guided me to think outside the box in terms of my business and how to move it to the next stage and become successful as well as being very encouraging through the process. Our sessions have given me a new lease of life.”
She’s relentlessly positive, hugely empathetic and genuinely cares about helping clients find (and keep) their mojo.”
Sam’s approach has always been a perfect combination of accountability and kindness. I have learnt a lot about myself these past 6 months. It has been a great partnership and I can’t wait to explore, learn, and conquer more in my life with Sam’s support. Executive Coaching and Personal Coaching with Sam has been life changing for me. I am so grateful I found Sam and am so happy we’ll continue to work together."
When I found out the company, I was working for, was being sold I knew that I wanted it to be opportunity to change my career. There was, however, one very large stumbling block, I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to do with my life! After almost two decades in a very stressful job, I knew what I didn’t want but what I did want had always alluded me. So, after a few months of stressing about the future I decided that I needed help. That’s where Samantha came in.
I found Samantha’s website informative and having been impressed by its content, I completed the enquiry form. Samantha responded to me by email, and we set up an initial call. Samantha was very good with answering my questions and putting my mind at ease about the process. However, what really sparked my interest was that because Samantha had also had similar experiences, she really listened to me and understood what my challenges were and how we could move forwards. Immediately after the call, I knew that I wanted to work with her.
From the very first session, I found Samantha to be warm and friendly and because of this it was very easy to open up to her. I was partially able to explain what I wanted to achieve from our time together and to explain where I had felt stuck. The speed at which I started having clear moments of realisation and awareness was amazing! I couldn’t believe the simple yet powerful questions she was asking led me to realise so much about myself and what I needed to do. At the end of our first meeting Samantha set me a couple of optional tasks to try before our next session which really helped me to stay accountable and on track!
At the end of my second session, I felt that I understood myself better and what I wanted out of my life in terms of a work life balance. I knew that I didn’t want to work in an office anymore, but I knew I wanted to incorporate my passion for health, exercise and yoga.
Then, whilst working on one of my tasks before session three I had a realisation, and I knew what I wanted from my career- I wanted to be a physiotherapist! This moment was a real turning point for me, because before I had started the coaching, I had felt so stuck and lacked clarity or direction. Yet here it was and as clear as day- my lightning bolt moment!
Then came the challenge, I couldn’t afford to go to university, and I didn’t have enough time to undertake the course part-time. I couldn’t believe I had finally uncovered what I wanted only for it to feel like it was slipping away. Samantha was brilliant, at my 3rd session we talked it all through and she gave me the confidence and lift I needed to go back and look at all the options. She explained there was always a way to make things happen, and always a back door and that I just had to find it.
By the time session 4 came around I had completed my research and found a way to continue working both full time and to train. Through my research I found a brilliant course to become a sports massage therapist. It ticked all my boxes. I couldn’t believe that by the final sessions I was sitting in front of Samantha with clear results and an action plan to move forwards. Before meeting Samantha, I never thought that would happen.
Samantha has supported me so much! Not only do I have a clear action plan now, but I completed a course so that I could teach, and now I also own and run my own thriving business!
I can’t tell you just how much happier I am now. I can say with absolutely certainty I would never have reached this point without Samantha’s help. During the sessions I could see Samantha really cares about supporting her clients to realise and to reach their highest potential.
Everybody needs Samantha in their life, the world would be a much more positive place for it!
