ABOUT SAMIA
experience and expertise

The way the mind works and the wonder of what we can do with it has been my passion for years. Facilitating the expression of ease and wholeness in a person, allowing them to fullfil what is important to them, is important to me.

So let’s consider…

 For all of my career I have helped people develop, ease
through change and work with ambiguity to deliver top results.

 

I worked as an Occupational Psychologist and then worked as a change leader in one of the “big 5” 

consultancies.

I set up and ran my own successful business abroad.

I headed the communications and training and development
function in a global publishing house.

I coach privately and in organisations and am engaged in assisting on reputable courses.

I have over 20 years experience working in this capacity.
My qualifications in this area include:

– Master’s degree in Psychology

-Certified Coach

– Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner

-Certficate in Applied Neuroscience

– Applied Brain and Behaviour Change Practitioner

– Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Practitioner

– Member of the British Psychological Society

– Principal Practitioner Member of the Association of Business Psychologists

– Member of the International Society for Coaching Psychology

– Member of the Climate Coaching Alliance

– Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council

WHAT I FOUND IS THAT experience and expertise work best when they are complemented by:
passion and adaptability

I am curious.

I love exploring our world, science and emotions. I am flexible and adaptable, yet true to myself.

I have lived in 7 different countries around the world.  Life experiences have shaped me, provided me with resilience, an open mind and spirit, compassion and empathy, and a tremendous capacity to listen and hold your space.

I harness these experiences to connect with you, help you imagine the possibilities, find what you believe in and value, understand where you may be stuck, help you remove the obstacles, find clarity, direction, and resources you didn’t yet know you had, and move forward.

The richness of life and the world around us is what fuels my energy.

opening up your world is part of the philosophy i bring to our sessions
connection

High Performing and high potential individuals such as yourself

have

drive and strengths that enable me to create a state of flow with you as

we explore your challenges and what matters to you and help you deliver your outcomes.

You may be coming to me

seeking clarity, direction or motivation, wanting to bounce back from a life event;

with a want to re-ignite your life journey

or with a simple odd feeling of unease,

a need for change or

calling not quite understood.

Whatever it is, we can explore it, face it together,

shift the way forward so you are ready to act on it

inside we are infinitely powerful.
i will sponsor your change so you will experience a higher level of living and meaningfully lead your life
And why sustainability for me?

I have had the privilege of travelling all over our Planet, from the depth of the oceans, to the mountain peaks, from the bustling cities to the peaceful plains. I love to explore all our world has to offer.

 

The climate emergency, human rights, ecological disasters…I have witnessed the changes, in my short lifetime.

 

The more we experience the more we come to care. The more we care the more we want to act.

 

I’m a member of the Climate Coaching Alliance, whose aim is to get us acting on our planet’s climate change and environmental emergency.

 

I feel like the rain drop (the one who holds the space for more than we can see) who feeds the river (the individuals who can make a bigger, wider impact) who will then flow to the ocean and impact our world…

Well, I’m working on it!

Our Planet and you

We are all part of a system and we all have an influence on making change happen. You, my clients, will each have your own sphere of influence – be it speaking with your children, or with what you buy in your local supermarket, or be it in your role in a global organisation, in government agencies or as an influencer in any context. And I, as your Coaching Psychologist, can help you think through what part you wish to play in this global emergency and act on it.

Every step counts – big or small. 

 

This environmental emergency is one experience we are all facing and wanting to positively act on,

Together, we can do our bit for the only place we all call home.

Whenever you wish to consider this issue in any of its guises, I can help you think it through.

Whatever it is, we can explore it, face it together and act on it!

 

REMOVE - EXPLORATION OF MANHOOD

In more recent years I have deeply explored the following questions:
What is it to be a man in this world?
How can I become the best version of myself as a man in this world?
And how can I help other men serve more deeply from within their own hearts?
This has led me to books, poems, prayer, music, film and workshops.
It has also led me to a magical organisation called The Mankind Project.
My time training and working as a volunteer for The Mankind Project continues today.

WHAT I HAVE FOUND IN MY EXPLORATION IS THAT IT IS TRULY AN HONOUR TO BE A MAN IN THE WORLD TODAY.

YES, MANY MEN ARE STRUGGLING, CONFUSED, AND FEELING UNHEARD.

YET THERE IS A CERTAIN PERFECTION TO ALL THIS.

AND THERE IS A WAY OUT OF DISCONTENT,

A WAY OUT FROM OUR HEADS AND BACK INTO OUR HEARTS.
