“Since seeing her, I have booked in for another two sessions and am slowly starting to notice my stubborn inner voice becoming a little less scary.”
Samiya is a qualified life coach: a graduate of The Coaches Training Institute®, which is part of the ICF Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP). As an ex-barrister, multiple business owner and founder, and mother of three, Samiya has a wealth of experiences from which to draw.
Here is an excerpt from an ES Magazine article written by one of Samiya’s clients, which explains the process and what to expect…
“I booked myself in to see a life coach last week. I was dreading it. I had no idea what to expect- I had nightmarish visions of sitting on the floor shouting positive affirmations out loud. The reality was far more civilised. I was greeted by Samiya with a cup of tea and we chatted for an hour (it seemed like 10 minutes) about the expectations I place on myself. She asked me simple questions which really helped clarify specific issues which were causing stress. She asked questions which empowered me to access my own inner voice. Within the first session, she helped me find an inner set of tools (which we all have) to help improve my time management and by proxy it helped me soften the bossy inner voice I have grown to live with. Coaching is different to psychotherapy, it focuses on helping clients thrive in the present and the future and is led by asking questions, a really useful way of enabling clients to work out how they feel about all the various factors in their own life.
I left Samiya, feeling recharged, lighter, more confident and excited to get on with my day. She gave me homework and unlike when I was at school, I didn’t rebel to it, I did it way before the deadline. Since seeing her, I have booked in for another two sessions and am slowly starting to notice my stubborn inner voice becoming a little less scary.”
