Samantha’s coaching was hugely beneficial to me at a key point in my career, where staying resilient in the face of challenges was key. She helped me take a step back and reflect on my goals and what made me tick. We put a plan in place so I was able to stay energised in the face of adversity, thinking from my whole body and bringing my head, heart and gut into balance. Samantha is passionate about bringing out the best in people and helping them find the tools they need to realise their ambitions.
My coaching sessions with Samantha were invaluable. She’s a wonderful coach – genuine, compassionate and skilled. Each session built on the previous one: through my own thinking, I found answers to questions I’d been asking myself for a while. She listened, challenged my thinking in a supportive and constructive way and made me reflect on my own practice as a senior leader. The coaching also benefitted my wellbeing positively, giving me strategies to use in my own practice. In doing so, I have made small changes that are having a great impact on how efficiently I function in my role.
Samantha is really relatable and holds a wealth of knowledge and experience that I was able to apply directly to my teaching practice. She has given me guidance on how to look after my professional and personal wellbeing, as well as offering practical advice on how to deal with new situations in the workplace.
I felt at ease and relaxed straight away. I talked about things which I hadn't realised were on my mind. I felt listened to, and stresses were lifted, leaving me more able to prioritise any tasks ahead.
I’ve got a much better work/life balance, therefore much better job satisfaction and more time for my own children!
I felt very comfortable with Samantha. She was professional and approachable, and made me aware of how my own feelings and worries were sometimes getting in the way. I now feel more confident in dealing with new situations and handling problems independently.
