Samantha made a decision to become a Christian at the age of 23yrs and now at the age of 54yrs has a deep rooted faith and belief in God. She understands the concerns that some may have about embracing practices, such as Yoga, whose practices have been embraced by other faiths or religions and therefore may be contrary to their Christian Faith. She understands and as a result ensures that God (through faith in Jesus) is at the centre of all that she does and believes in embracing the very natural processes that God has provided within His creation to gain mental, emotional, physical & spiritual well-being. You do not, however, have to be a Christian to benefit meaningfully from these sessions and Sam would deeply respect your own views and beliefs, holding a space of kindness and acceptance for you.
Samantha’s passion for helping people to find their personal freedom & depth of authenticity was birthed from having to work through debilitating limiting beliefs, patterns of self-sabotage & a low self-esteem as a result of past abusive relationships. She has overcome Bulimia Nervosa, depression, inferiority complex and drug & alcohol dependence. She utilises her skills, including Meditation, Mindfulness & Visioneering, to support people into personal freedom which leads to fulfilment. Samantha understands that our Journey to freedom & fulfilment is just that ‘A Journey’. She recognises that many of us try to hold a ‘together’ outer appearance while often struggling with personal inner challenges.
For many years Samantha performed as a Contemporary dancer & experienced deep inner healing through the deep connection of movement & dance. Consequently, running dance workshops to help others find their inner beauty & creative flow.
Samantha believes that gratitude & giving, no matter how small, can be an aspect of our own inner healing. Actively involved in voluntarily work over the years, she believes in the power of the community to make positive change. This voluntary work has taken Samantha overseas, including working with NGOs in Africa & Cambodia.
