What my clients say

Samantha is a great listener, and a caring and encouraging coach.  One of my most important takeaways from the sessions with her is that there are many sources of joy and that love is not scarce – I just need to let down the walls that are blocking them from entering my life.  Her questions and the homework made me think deeper about what makes me tick, clarify my needs and values, and encourage me to take ownership of my life. I stay in my head too much, and the exercises we did during the sessions helped me connect with my bodily wisdom and senses.  Indeed, the resources and answers are often within us, and Samantha has supported me to gain access to them.  I encourage those who too want to tap into all that energy and creativity to embark on coaching with Samantha – a journey of seeing possibilities and the beauty inside of you. 

Elaine Tang, Hong Kong

I began working with Samantha when embarking on a significant life adjustment; changing jobs, country and relationship. Rather than lugging all my recurring negative patterns with me Samantha helped me unpack the items which were holding me back in life, and instead reflect on my positive strengths and skills.  Like many in leadership positions, I often felt overwhelmed with other people’s problems and the weight of what needed to be achieved but having sessions with Samantha enabled me to take a fresh look at situations, unclutter the obstacles and clarify goals. I am certain that her skills at career coaching not only help me but ricocheted off all those around me. Every session I have looked forward to eagerly as they were the opportunity to stop, reflect and breath- such a privilege in our fast-paced world. Samantha created the space and opportunity to be truly listened to and she gently pushed me out of my comfort zone to dig deep, find solutions and recalibrate.  Thank you for your care and commitment. I will forever be truly grateful.
