Thrive Mission: to empower women to create, develop and grow their business with confidence

Hi, I'm Sam

And I'm the founder of Thrive Coaching. I'm a Marketing & Business Coach and wildly passionate about helping women achieve their greatest success in business.

I've coached hundreds of women in business and with every woman I work with I bring my unique blend of coaching and mentoring to help them in their individual needs in business.

I pride myself in listening to my clients - their needs, their values and visions. I'm hugely practical and very honest about my own learnings and experiences of running my own business.

Thrive Coaching launched over 5 years ago and I'm proud that I'm able to bring my experience of launching and running 3 of my own businesses, my 18+ years of marketing experience and all my ongoing training and development that I share with my clients.

My coaching style is warm, honest and welcoming with an infusion of humour!

I live in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire with my husband and two young boys (5 and 3 year olds). I understand the challenges of balancing home and businesses and the needs, motivations and desires to achieve success!

  • Sam “positively prods me” like a kind encouraging boss who wants you to succeed, but on your own terms, and has been so helpful in highlighting my good points as well as those that need some attention to improve upon. Sam has a great skill – she can summarise your situation into Action Points, and yet allow you to focus on your own path. Like a personal business Sat Nav, she recalculates your route back to its best destination!

  • Thanks to Sam I found the confidence to pursue my dream career in counselling. Sam used the perfect balance of encouragement and challenge to help me to find the future role I wanted. Sam is a careful listener, extremely knowledgeable and would always ask thought provoking questions that helped me to focus on my goals and see a way through any obstacles. She is an incredibly compassionate person who cares about the well-being and success of her clients.
