Hello, I am Sam, an ACC accredited coach and ANFT Forest Therapy Guide.
Begin anywhere, just begin.
Are you feeling stuck, out of control, or overwhelmed?
Do you want more out of life, work or relationships?
Do you hear yourself say, 'is this it?'
Is something holding you back from living the life you want?
Then I can help.
I partner people through positive change. Inspired and guided by the beauty and wisdom of nature, I help you to nurture your desire for change, awaken your senses, re-connect with your heart and align with your inner purpose. By exploring your ideal scene, unlocking limits and taking action, you will be equipped with new awareness and empowered to move forward with renewed energy and confidence.
My mission is to help people reconnect with themselves and their environment, empowering them to be their own leader of a life of wholeness and fulfilment.
I believe you can CREATE the life you want to lead. Through our partnership you will embrace a new deeper level of awareness and channel your focus, so you clear a path to living and breathing the life you want. I feel strongly that by connecting deeper with ourselves, we become authentic leaders and role models for our future generations and within each of us there is enormous and far-reaching impact and potential.
I haven’t always felt this way. In fact, there have been times in my life when I felt so utterly out of control, that I lost sight of who I was and what I wanted out of life. But by working through the challenges that came my way, I uncovered my true purpose, which was to help other people through positive change.
Inspired by nature and the ability of mother earth to continuously adapt to the ever-changing conditions and seasons, I help you to trust your innate power and attract abundance and growth in all aspects of your life.
Before training as a coach, I worked in the corporate sector for 12 years. Much of that time was spent travelling and living abroad, navigating the complexities of relocation, and adapting to different cultures, energies and landscapes. While each major change in location came with positive opportunities, I also encountered infinite transitions across my professional and personal life, including the trauma of recurrent miscarriages and significant health events. What I learnt through these experiences was the importance of connection – connection with self and the things that ground you.
For me, as well as the importance of family and friends, I began to recognise the power of nature around us. I had always enjoyed the outdoors, but it was much more than that. It was a heightened awareness of the interconnectivity of ourselves with nature, the appreciation of the ‘Natural Edge’ as an abundant space between ecosystems. It meant that no matter where I was in the world, I felt anchored and drew strength from the fields, woods, rivers, oceans and sky around me.
The ‘Natural Edge’ is where I take my clients, giving them freedom to open their minds and hearts to a dynamic, productive space on the edge of their comfort zone, where they dare to dream, voice, or shout about where they want to be or how they want to lead their lives. By reconnecting you with your authentic self, we move from where you are now to where you want to be. Step by step we work together in partnership, I will challenge you, motivate you and become your cheerleader – supporting you throughout your journey to help you live and lead the life you want.
Client: - Business Coaching
I didn't know much about coaching techniques, and hadn't been coached before the sessions with Sam, but it's been an epiphany. She helped me discover many things about myself that have been holding me back and guided me towards a personal sustainable goal. I've grown in confidence seeing the impact after only the first session and now tackle issues that I previously avoided. I recognise the power of coaching and now use the techniques with my own team, whereas before I directed them. I fully recommend these sessions with Sam it's changed how I approach my work and home life in a very positive way.

Walk and Talk out in Nature
I have clients in the UK and abroad, location is not an issue.
Guided Forest Therapy Walks for Corporates or Private.
A guided forest therapy walk is essentially a slow and mindful walk through the forest, never walking far, it is not a hike. Participants are gently guided through a series of invitations to explore the surroundings with all of their senses. It is a beautiful experience and a must for any self care package. Participants leave relaxed, calm, restored and rejuvenated. To date people have been amazed by the positive impact it has on their wellbeing.
"Thank you so much Sam for an absolutely incredible forest walk today and for introducing us to the wonders of forest therapy. We felt safe, supported and challenged. You opened our eyes and our awareness. Your gentle, warm and engaging approach invited us in - purposeful with a beautiful lightness of touch. There were lovely surprises at every stage - and the tea at the end just beautiful. Thank you"
