Samantha Louise Scholey
Master Practitioner of Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching
Life Coach Practitioner
BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology
I started my career in Her Majesty’s Prison Service running high intensity treatment programmes with prisoners who had addiction problems which progressed to management and had me moving around the country working at different prisons running their substance misuse and healthcare services.
I then moved on to be an Operations Director in the charity sector to continue ensuring that my work had an impact on improving people’s lives.
I have always had a desire to help people and understand human behaviour, and this is what led to my love of psychology and then led me to training in coaching, hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT.
I have had my fair share of challenges throughout my life, but every challenge has strengthened me, shaped me, increased my resilience and brought me to today.
One of the biggest challenges was the unexpected and sudden death of my beloved niece Megan. This grief and loss changed my life forever and I re-evaluated everything I knew and everything that I thought was important and made some big changes physically, psychologically and mentally.
We only get one life to live and whilst many people say this statement out loud, very few people embody it. I would love to be able to help you embody this and make the changes that will allow you to live the life you both want and deserve because it is your birth right to be happy.
I truly believe that all the answers we need are within us, hence why I called my business Coaching Within.
Denzel Washington spoke at Dillard University delivering the commencement speech and he said one of the most profound things that I had heard “true desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it’s yours already”.
The answers, the guidance, the desire, the next steps are within you.
So if you have that niggling feeling that something isn’t right, you want to change something, you have a desire for something, you feel a pull to something but need some support, then contact me.
I have been in that position before and I spent a lot of time ignoring my intuition because of fear and opinions, but once I changed that I felt a freedom like I have never experienced.
