About me

I work with women to help them get that little voice to shut up. You know, the one that keeps telling you you’re not good enough or that you will never achieve that amazing audacious goal you have. Yes that one! With me by your side that voice will disappear and your belief in yourself will soar. I will help you to get clarity on what you want from life and create the plan to get it.

My mission is to help women to go from surviving to thriving.

I have an empathetic but no-nonsense approach that maintains momentum and will hold you accountable to taking the action you want to create the life you desire. My role as your coach is to ensure you get the outcome you want quicker than if you had continued to try on your own.

I am a certified coach with over 12 years experience that has supported many women to feel bolder, excited and more confident about their lives. Along with my coaching certifications I bring a wealth of life experience:

  • A survivor of child sex abuse that affected my mental health and belief in myself through my teens and twenties. Coaching helped me to get to a much stronger place
  • Raised overseas and moving countries every couple of years due to my fathers occupation. I developed a wide cultural understanding and resilience from a young age
  • A serious medical condition during my time at university resulted in major surgery with anticipated months of recovery. To the surprise of my surgeon, I was training for competitive swimming again 4 months later
  • Starting the menopause in my early 40’s and developing hormonal depression. I found a practitioner to help me manage the symptoms naturally which transformed the quality of my life

When I am not coaching I can be found open water swimming, cycling or heading to the hills. I still sign up for events that push me out of my comfort zone as I know that is where growth happens. I am an introvert that finds small talk and parties make my brain hurt, yet I love public speaking and running workshops. I invest in my personal development and continue to look for the opportunities to learn and grow.

This is why my coaching is effective. I am very familiar with the challenges life throws at my clients, because I have been there myself. I also know what action is needed to keep taking those necessary steps forward. I believe I can do most things I put my mind to and that my clients can do the same.

Making change is totally within reach, all you need is a plan and someone to help keep you on target.

Client testimonials:

“Coaching with Sam was really rewarding. Hearing myself say things out loud for the first time during the sessions helped me get clarity and focus. I started to have fun again, something I’d forgotten how to do! Sam also gave me some tangible strategies and steps to implement which have really helped quieten my inner critic. The sessions were very timely for me and I couldn’t have asked for a better coach. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for or thinking about getting coaching.” GJ. Dundee

"Having achieved many of my long-term goals, I was struggling to find purpose in my life and work. Sam helped me clarify my next over-arching goal from the too many options I was entertaining. She asked some hard questions, gave me some soul-searching homework, and encouraged me to be honest with myself, acknowledging my strengths and skills in a way I hadn’t done previously. If you’re looking to work with a coach, I can’t recommend Sam highly enough." DW. Stirling

"From my very first zoom session, I found Sam's approach hugely refreshing, practical and forward focused. Sam is empathetic, encouraging and keeps our appointments on track. With Sam's life coaching skills I am gaining clarity and tools to help me navigate a challenging time in my life. I am hugely grateful to Sam for her guidance and expertise." SG. Aberdeen
