When Sam and I first met, I was looking for someone to help me create the life I wanted to live abroad. I was looking for guidance and for someone to help me clear the noise in my head so I could focus on moving forward with my business. I wanted my life abroad to feel fun and easy.
Having Sam’s support and guidance helped me to think differently about my accomplishments. I now stop to savour them more. I notice when something goes right. I’ve also noticed that I’m much kinder to myself and I have a different understanding of my potential.
Sam is an incredibly perceptive and patient soul. The way she works is a clear expression of how she perceives the world and her love and understanding of people, and it shows up in all her work: from an encouraging email to a thought-provoking question.
I am so grateful to Sam for holding the space for me to go through this transformation and for going above and beyond her coaching duties. Our sessions have been an immense source of pleasure, strength and support. This was the solid foundation I was looking for all along. I just needed someone to help me envision it, create it and feel it.

Before I started coaching with Sam, I was so confused as to where my life was heading. At the time I was working seasonally in Japan and I didn’t know if I wanted to study, work or travel and I wasn’t sure about where in the world I wanted to live. I had no direction and I felt like I wasn’t achieving anything. I was very unsure and not confident about the decisions I was making. I wanted to break the cycle of non-achievement and create some stability in my life.
After my very first chat with Sam, I knew I wanted to give coaching a go. Sam was so easy to talk to and positive about my future, so I felt really excited about working with her. I’m so glad that I did!
After coaching with Sam, I now feel more positive and focused. From the very first session, I realised that I didn’t need to feel so unsure of myself and I began to think about my future and a possible path that I wanted to take. I am now living and working in Zurich, and I’m excited about my future.
I am much more confident and optimistic thanks to coaching with Sam. She was always helpful, reassuring, constructive and encouraging in our sessions and I couldn’t have asked for more. My family is also thankful for the help and clarity Sam gave me. I would highly recommend working with her to anyone. Thanks Sam!

I was fortunate to meet the beautiful Sam in January 2016 at Phuket Cleanse where I decided to embark on a 3.5 week cleanse – a period of time that allowed me the opportunity to focus on healthy body and healthy mind. Sam was a large part of that process for me.
I hadn’t had life coaching before, but I’d heard really positive things about it from friends and relatives who had tried it so I decided to have a session with Sam. I went into it a little unsure as to what we would talk about. Would Sam ask me what my life goals were and would I be able to answer her then and there? What if I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life? What if I didn’t know what my long term goals were? – All these questions running through my head.
Sam’s relaxed and gentle nature quickly put me at ease, and I immediately felt so comfortable with her. It honestly felt like I was speaking with a friend who I had known all my life. Sam was able to talk me through and provide keys for realising what didn’t work well in my life prior to Phuket Cleanse and how I could adapt and make changes when I came home in order to maintain a more balanced life.
My other key taking that I thoroughly enjoyed with Sam and gave me really good food for thought was the “values” exercise she talked me through. This exercise involved discussing key values that I had and recognising when others breached those values, how it made me feel and how to deal with it moving forward. This was very powerful for me because I have always been a very reactive person and this particular exercise has really made me stop and reflect upon those values which are really important to me and when people close to me share them or not, how that makes me feel and how I react to it. Since our session, although we are now in different cities (Sam still living her amazingly adventurous life), Sam has shared a number of useful tools with me to enable me to continue on my life coaching journey.
I highly recommend Sam as a life coach – she is a beautiful soul, easy going, relatable, packed with life experience, listens and actually cares. Thank you Sam for the positive impact you have had upon my life.

Before I met Sam I was working as a Project Manager and I was also interested in setting up my own coaching business. Although I already had one coaching client, I didn’t know how to take the first steps towards getting more clients and developing my coaching practice. After coming to the realization that I couldn’t do this alone, I decided to work with Sam.
Originally I was a bit anxious and skeptical about whether I could be helped, but I’m always open to discovering new methods and new perspectives, so I thought I’d give it a shot. Having a good connection and rapport with someone is really important to me, and I felt this from the very first conversation I had with Sam.
Through the coaching process, I realised how important it was to have somebody really listening to me, reminding me of my original intentions and keeping me on track towards achieving my goal of taking the first few steps towards building my coaching practice.
Sam was always very present in our sessions and she kept me accountable. As a result of working with Sam, I’m now more confident talking to others about my coaching. I had business cards made and I came up with a way to describe what I do that I feel comfortable with. Sam always gave me a gentle push whenever I was getting stuck and kept me moving in the right direction. I never felt like I was doing anything that I didn’t want to do.
I would definitely recommend working with Sam. She has a quiet, encouraging and persistent presence as well as a set of tools that can help people with any kind of problem they may be facing.
