Learn the skills of a Professional Life Coach for your own Self-Care, Personal Development, Motivation and Self-Awareness - whenever you need it.


At the end of the Life Coaching for Self Care certificate training program, students will be able to create their own coaching plans to support their personal Self Care goals.  They will be able to communicate kindly and effectively with themselves, set purposeful self-care goals and self-motivate meaningful action towards them.  Students will learn visualization and meditation techniques to support self-generated action plans.  They will be able to express why change is important.  Students will be able to create their own personal coaching tool kit to support them in their progress, and be able to identify destructive ‘road blocking’ habits and intercept them with empowering alternatives.    Students will end the program by creating their own supportive accountability plan.  


Coaching with Sam is about understanding who you are, what you want, how you plan to get it, and carry yourself in the process. It is about cracking the code on the ruts that can ruin a day, owning your hours and spending them wisely, and establishing and acknowledging an orbit of support to empower you through any of life’s challenges.

You will learn empowering creative coaching techniques used daily by women in the USA, UK, Italy, Spain and France, tailored to your own unique situation and goals.
