Sam is frequently in the media offering her unique, solution-focused and science-backed insights to help people improve their relationships with others and themselves, including their mental health.
She is passionate about using powerful solutions to address both age-old problems and the modern relationship challenges we now face as a rapidly evolving society.
Sam’s unique approach has seen her help clients achieve their relationship goals, mental health goals and other personal goals, usually in just 2-6 coaching sessions, many in just 2-3). The testimonials, though only a fraction of Sam’s happy clients, speak for her. Most notably, Sam helps clients achieve results that people have traditionally achieved after a much lengthier counselling or psychotherapy programme and is one of the things that really astounds many of her clients.
