Training and Experience.

She has a background as an energy healer. She works with people from all walks of life providing healing, support and guidance using a vast array of spiritual and secular tools. She has been volunteering as a mentor working with women on relationship issues since 2011. She practiced holistic medicine as a homeopath for ten years.
Personal and Family
Sam has always asked the big questions like: Why are we here? What happens when we die? And how do we achieve everyday peace? That led her on a journey through science, spirituality, therapy and meditation to eventually becoming a minister and celebrant. She now loves sharing that knowledge with new celebrants who she feels privileged to train.
She lives happily with her life partner Carl and their two fur-babies Sid and Hattie.
