Biography

The moments that make coaching so powerful are the little ones. When we see the old story that has been echoing around our heads, holding us back and telling us how we don't measure up.

I love these stories.

Because when we finally see them, we see the path to everything we want.

My clients come from all walks of life, but we share one key idea: we want to live fearlessly. Working and living the life we truly want, liberated from all the fears that hold us back and get in our way.

I am the right coach for you if you know there is something incredible you want to create in your life, and you are ready and raring to commit to it and make it happen.

If you know that you have the ability to take charge of your life, and access the power you truly have. If you want to feel loving and free in what you do, and know that that is the best route to you creating what you want.

I will be fearless with you and show you that you are capable of anything. I will support you as you take incredible action in your life. And from there your work and life will change.

The results are priceless.

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    Sam was recommended to me through my employer.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    Navigating change in my career, moving into a new leadership role.

    What changed after working with Sam?
    More relaxed and confident - trusting myself to grow over time rather than needing to be a fully formed 'perfect' person from the off.

    What specific results can you share?
    Improved retention in our team, a more consistent performance from the team members - and frankly just a happier, better atmosphere for us to work in.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    Sam’s insightful and considered coaching has opened up new perspectives for me that haven’t just influenced how I present myself in work environments, but how I conceptualise myself in many different spaces. He never shied away from being direct and calling me out when it was needed, or knowing when best for us to build to a conclusion together. From specific actions I can take, to opening different mindsets for me to explore, Sam’s ability to tailor his coaching to my own needs meant every session I came away with something to act on or think about. I’ve felt the benefits from his support and I hope others can as well.


    5* James McDavid August 2021

  • (3/11 testimonials)

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    I had a chance to attend a seminar given by Sam on the topic of wellbeing and was impressed. We subsequently had a number of conversations about coaching around the same time that I was looking for that support in my career.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    My next promotion; being regarded by the firm's most senior leaders as a true partner.

    What changed after working with Sam?
    Self-belief; being comfortable in what I truly believe in rather than putting on a facade just to impress people in more senior positions. In a word, authenticity.

    What specific results can you share?
    It's too soon to tell about the promotion, but I feel I have achieved a step-change in how I am regarded, perform and feel at work. I also feel ready to move to another role if the time is right.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    Have a couple of meaningful conversations to make sure you really connect; like a good therapist, you might need to try a few coaches without commitment before finding the one who is right for you.

  • (4/11 testimonials)

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    My company.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    Identifying the correct questions to ask myself.

    What changed after working with Sam? I now feel able to look further than the initial question to understand what is the true challenge I'm facing and therefore am better prepared in how to address it.

    What specific results can you share?
    Sam was engaged, interested, insightful and challenging. Challenging is the operative word here as he did far more than simply encourage me, he delved into my doubts and concerns, pushing me to understand why they were there, why I should deal with them, and showing me how I can deal with them. I left each session feeling empowered, excited and eager to pursue more.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    The value you get out is far greater than what you put in. This is an investment for your future and is, without a doubt, worth it.


    5* Alex Fenton November 2021

  • (5/11 testimonials)

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    I came across Sam through my job, he was recommended by one of my former colleagues.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    Lack of self-love and lack of self-compassion which also led to being judgemental and unloving to others

    What changed after working with Sam?
    I ask "why" more often - if someone is angry at me, why, where does that come from? If I feel like I am a bad person, why do I feel that way? If someone pisses me off, why, what is causing it? I believe that taking love and compassion as the starting point in my thinking process and just approach to life overall has made me a happier person.

    What specific results can you share?
    I got a new job (which I absolutely love), I stopped postponing doing some massive charity and judging myself for that and started doing charity at my local church instead (have been wanting to do it for years), I have a happier, healthier relationship with my husband who keeps saying he has never seen me so positive and optimistic, my new colleagues say I change the atmosphere of the room when I come in because I am always positive, kind and enthusiastic. And most importantly - I feel that way about myself, I feel like the true "me", for the first time in many years.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    I loved working with Sam and found our coaching sessions enlightening. Sam knows when to push you a bit more and when to challenge you, or when to remind you to be kind and accepting of yourself and give yourself some credit and space. He also manages to find this great and difficult balance between digging deep, asking questions and discussing rather existential issues and being hands on - giving you homework, asking you to commit to a certain new habit, try out a new routine, etc. He adapts to the situation and to you and always asks what you need and what works best for you. I also really appreciate the notes of the session he always shared with me after each session, a great way to be able to go back to what we discussed and reflect on it.

  • (7/11 testimonials)

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    It was proposed to me by my job.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    I didn't have any particular challenge at the time.

    What changed after working with Sam?
    On the various topics we spoke of, he taught me how to look at things from a different angle, to unlock the situation and the perception I have of it, and help me manage it, or get over it.

    What specific results can you share?
    The sessions with Sam were excellent, and had a deep impact on me, on varied subjects. They have triggered very interesting conversations with the people around me (not necessarily from work), and additional reading/podcasts on certain topics. I still often think about it. It impacted me both on a professional and personal level, and made me realise how intricately they both relate to each other — After all I'm the same person at work and out of work. I attended the sessions during a period where I didn’t have any specific problems to solve, which allowed us to talk about various topics. No matter the subject, from the most random daily routine or bad habit, to deeper matters, the sessions drove me to look at things from a different angle, which was in cases life-changing.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    Whatever your challenges or situation, I believe Sam will always find a way to offer you tools and insights to handle it better.

  • (9/11 testimonials)

    What drew you to Sam's services?

    It was offered as part of a scheme in my workplace.

    What was your biggest challenge prior to working with Sam?
    High levels of anxiety and adrenaline, lack of self-esteem, constantly troubled by negative thoughts.

    What changed after working with Sam?
    The levels of anxiety decreased and I gained confidence.

    What specific results can you share?
    Sam offered interesting perspectives on the problems I approached him with. I was able to address the feelings I was experiencing in a completely different way and learn to appreciate them, rather than see them as a hindrance. What I had previously learned to think of as intrusive thoughts, was in fact just my thoughts and once I broke through that barrier with Sam's help, my anxiety decreased and my confidence started to grow. I found it really easy to be honest and open with Sam too, which made all the difference. I could tell there was zero judgement which made for really comfortable conversations, even around difficult topics.

    What would you say to someone on the fence about purchasing Sam's services?
    I would say go for it! Sam adapted to my needs with such patience and understanding, right from the start. I really looked forward to exploring new ground with each session and enjoyed the natural flow of our conversations, constantly surprised by every turn they took. He enabled me to embrace what I have always seen as my “worst” habits and traits and turn them into positive aspects to nurture and appreciate. The follow-up e-mails he sent after each session were like little pieces of treasure. I now have some invaluable tools to help me tackle the more challenging parts of life and for that I am eternally grateful! Thank you for helping me to no longer see myself as broken.

    I have loved my journey with Sam.

    My self-confidence took a dive after becoming a mum and returning to work remotely during the pandemic. Sam has helped me address unhelpful beliefs and behaviours, learn more about myself than I ever knew, discover what really motivates and excites me, and determine how I want to show up at work for me, my colleagues, and my creative work.

    Ultimately, how to be a more fearless version of myself.

    His coaching offers a great blend of very practical advice mixed in with more high-level thinking, to serve me right now, and which I’m sure I’ll be recalling for years to come.

    Sam’s friendly and loving presence made it very easy to be totally honest, and his opening question at the start of each session is something I’ll continue to ask myself every day from now on: ‘What do you want to have happen today?’

    Thanks so much, Sam.
