Testimonials

Samantha has been truly present in every coaching session I’ve had. She’s a true listener, and pulls out patterns and observations that I wouldn’t have seen myself. After every session I’ve had with Samantha I’ve felt lighter and with a clear sense of direction. She has a real talent for helping you to both work out and choose your desired direction. Her question asking is excellent. She doesn’t give up, until you really reach the crux of the matter. During every session I also feel how much Samantha enjoys her work as a coach and helping others to achieve their goals. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend Samantha as a coach.

Alice Beste, Education Consultant

Sammy has a natural way of engaging you on a personal level that allows you to feel safe to openly share your thoughts and needs. She is able to coach with a high level of care and empathy. She is encouraging and trustworthy. I love how Sammy can unleash in me new perspectives that help me see all the possibilities that I have not seen before, hence enabling me to come up with answers for myself.

Rainy Chan, Chief Operating Officer

Coaching with Samantha has been an incredibly rewarding experience. The sessions are arranged to give time to explore the real root causes of what is going on. Taking a broad view really helped me  get clarity on work and life more generally. Samantha is an amazing listener and really connected with the stories and issues we discussed. Her cleverly crafted questions demonstrate a wisdom and empathy with the challenges and ideas you might be working through. While achieving this subtly and usually without any formal structure I would realise by the end of the session that the way she had steered the conversation had enabled a lot of answers to come through.

Sammy is one of the best coaches I have worked with. She has an incredibly perceptive sense of intuition, which she manages to incorporate perfectly into a warm, empathic yet still direct, and where necessary challenging, coaching style. This really enables you to get to the heart of challenges or objectives that you are addressing, move them forward in the best way for you and create lasting changes. I have been astounded at how much progress I have made towards my key life objectives in only a few months and this has been without doubt greatly facilitated and accelerated by Sammy’s coaching. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone considering coaching.

Samantha Whetstone, Lawyer

While working with Samantha I have had so many light bulb and 'ah ha' moments. Not afraid to challenge you to address your deepest self-limiting beliefs, and dig into the heart of what is really driving you, Samantha's warm and collaborative style made our focused sessions enjoyable, while still providing a no nonsense approach and accountability when needed. I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who feels ready to take a leap to make a change in their lives, or who just wants to know themselves more deeply, and live their best life. You won't regret it.

Harriet Stiles, Senior Manager

Sammy brings a lightness to the coaching dynamic that makes disclosure easy and straightforward, uses her unsurpassed intuition to reflect back in such an insightful way, it feels like dancing through possibilities rather than wading through angst and self-doubt. I felt soothed and invigorated with a sense of hope.

Sammy is a genuine authentic and vibrant individual who exudes positivity when coaching.  These traits uplift me and make me look forward to our sessions.  She listens deeply and asks penetrating questions.  If you're ready to transform then book a session with her and you won't be disappointed.

Mojdeh Khalili, VP Strategy

Sammy pushes you to think deeply about your issues. She asks great questions and during the course of the coaching program she made me realise that I had the answers all along. Sammy's coaching style is very supportive. I was coached by her for 6 months and this has helped me improve my life dramatically.

Sylvia Nicolas, Career Coach

One of the most life-changing conversations I had with a professional coach was with Sammy. She is not a therapist, neither a "life-coach". She did not focus on what I was telling her but more on what I was actually not saying to myself. We used my soft skills and life-purpose to figure out big career changes I was aiming to do but could not achieve for reasons I now understand and have the tools to overcome.

I believe we should all have a therapist, a mentor or a coach to become the best version of ourselves and she is one of the best professionals I was lucky enough to meet especially because she is specialized in human beings who want to be Game Changers.

Carole Sanchez, CEO, Non-profit

Earlier this year I was suddenly made redundant after more than four years working with the same company and during which time I had given little thought as to what I wanted to do next. I felt completely stuck - unable to concentrate on anything and finish even simple tasks, or to figure out my next steps and have the confidence to start working towards those. 


The sessions I had with Sammy made such a difference though and were incredibly helpful in allowing me to realize how I was holding myself back and how I could overcome my own negative thoughts. Speaking to Sammy also helped clarify exactly what it is that I want to do in the near- and long-term, and see the value in my skills and experience. After the first session, I felt a huge sense of relief and had a deeper understanding of what was going on inside my own head. A couple of weeks later, I left our second session feeling so positive and energized that I finally started making progress on all the tasks I had been procrastinating for so long.


Sammy is very easy to talk to - even when it comes to some pretty personal or emotional topics - and knows how to ask the right questions or direct the conversation in a way that helps her clients get to the crux of the matter. In coming up with solutions or exercises, I really appreciate that these are tailored to each client and what works for them. 

Emma Smith, Journalist

I found my sessions with Sammy insightful, motivational and really enjoyable. As someone who had previously been slightly wary of the idea of 'coaching', my worries were quickly alleviated shortly into the first session with Sammy. 


I found that after each session I was able to start organising my thoughts, work towards working out the roots to my feelings of loss and dissatisfaction with what I was doing and leave with tangible actions to help me move forwards. I left the sessions feeling energised and life decisions not feeling so overwhelming.


Sammy was a great person to spend time with, she made me feel extremely comfortable, asked questions that encouraged me to really reflect and dig deeper, and clearly listened carefully to my responses and to the direction where I wanted the conversation to go.
