Consultants and Coaches

Sam comes to CDL with more than 15 years of coaching and workshop facilitation experience, working with employees at all levels of seniority and across multiple industry sectors.

With a BA in Business Studies, a Graduate Certificate in Career Development and a Diploma in Neuro Developmental Therapy, Sam is passionate about providing excellence in guidance and support for those employees who are embarking on a new career direction or looking to further their professional development.

Empathetic, inspiring and empowering in her coaching and facilitation style, Sam builds rapid rapport so that individualised or group buy in to training or coaching is immediate. Her client centric approach enables Sam to put employees at ease and to quickly motivate and encourage them to focus on a positive and successful outcome.

Sam also has a particular passion for enabling employees through workplace change, enhancing levels of personal resilience and applying the principles of positive psychology and purpose. She has provided practical guidance to those who have been impacted by redundancy, to parents who are returning to the workforce and has skilfully coached those people who are looking for a complete change in career direction.

With more than six years’ experience in neuro development therapy, Sam gained specialist skills in diagnosis and assessment which formed the basis of the remedial coaching and support provided to clients. Sam is also an accredited Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) administrator and facilitator, a personality profiling tool which is incorporated into many of the coaching and training solutions provided by CDL.
