Samantha is like the best friend you’ve never had. Describing her skills is difficult to put into words. There is an energy and an authenticity about her that is indescribable. She is extremely insightful and will make you feel at ease right from the beginning. Do not be fooled by her lovely baby face, she has quite some experience under her belt. I would recommend her to the most important people in my life in a heartbeat. I guarantee you that you will not regret your session.

Out of all the professionals i’ve seen for my anxiety, i’ve never had anyone tell me that I don’t have to live like this. Its always been approached and said, well you may live like this but I can teach you to cope with it, or manage it. But Samantha really got me thinking positive in my first session, encouraging me and telling me life doesnt have to be just accepting what happens to you, but doing things you want to and really the only person who puts limits on you is you. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little more positive vibe in their life or needs a little help in reaching goals they really want! Thank You Sam. This was the best thing I could have done for myself.

Gives great info and knows how to let others do as they please with it, for one can only evolve into something great by his own will. Sam is in her beginnings but is already a powerful coach. One that accepts and meets the level of her subject and always treats that friend as an equal. Lots of love to you Samantha!

I’ve met few people as dedicated to personal empowerment as Samantha Barley. She is professional, knowledgeable and warm hearted. She is an effective communicator, and she shines when it come to encouraging and motivating others to achieve their full potential. My number one choice for a life coach, I am pleased to collaborate with Samantha on a regular basis. For anyone looking for a life coach who truly understands the real life human challenges we face, Samantha Barley is a wonderful guide.

Samantha Barley has a wonderful and authentic presence that makes her unique to her profession. She has the ability to understand your individual problems, and help guide you towards becoming the best version of yourself. If you’ve ever been hesitant in seeking help because you weren’t sure how it may feel, know that talking to Samantha feels like talking to an old friend. One who is genuinely interested in what you have to say, and wants nothing more than to help you succeed.

Being the mother of this not only intelligent and beautiful lady, I want to say that she knows exactly what’s she is doing and has helped so many people in her life, including me. She has coached me many times, and I am sure she can help anyone. I’m proud of you Sam, and love you very much! xo
January 20th 2015
Sam is one of the rare people you can come across in life who can look at situations objectively while always remaining open minded and compassionate. I count myself as fortunate to have her as a friend

Great life coach! Helped me realize where I was in terms of weight management for example; gave me the tools (started implementing right away and have been feeling great) and helped me get back to a constructive perspective about it. On a more general note, I really feel she cares about empowering people and seeing them succeed. Very constructive listener. Think of her as a professional friend!:)
January 5th 2015
Samantha has been a great help to me in enabling me to deal with many issues and to make changes in my life and persona. She really wants to help others, is caring, and will go out of her way to help everyone no matter what their life circumstances. Highly recommended.

Samantha est une coach de vie extraordinaire, elle sait redonner confiance en soi et en la vie ! Merci pour tout le bien que tu mas fait !
April 18th 2015
Samantha is able to inspire life changes! Great personality, good listener and wise coach. Her approach is personal, confidential, practical and effective. I can feel many relevant improvements in my life since I started my sessions. I can say that I am recovering the happiness in my life again. I was (still am a little bit …) a skeptical and stochastic arrogant-confident nerdy and not-fully-happy technocrat. Samantha was (is) capable of making me discover my true inner-self and where I need to change to become happier. I am currently going through a difficult time in my life with many stressing factors and transitions, which are leading to severe depression. Yes, I have a behavioural-cognitive therapist, but it has been very “theoretical” and aims long-term healing. I have short-term (non-bipolar) “up” and “down” moods. Samantha’s life coaching approach provides practical day-to-day actions to help me overcome the short-term instabilities, typical of my condition. More than once I went (by survival instinct) to a session completely unmotivated, without energy, and feeling useless … by half-time I was smiling, and by the end I was happy, feeling relieved and ready to face my daily challenges. Day after day I improved significantly! Today I love to come to the sessions and meetings, always motivated and eager to learn something new. Thank you Samantha! (I need to acknowledge that I also have three wonderful daughters that help me).

Did 1st session, was really hard for me to do, I felt shy and embarrassed to talk about my situation but Samantha was extremely helpful and insightful the whole time. I highly recommend for anyone to do the same and have a session talking with Samantha. I’d definitely do another session in the future
June 5th 2015
Samantha is great. She is down to earth and easy to talk to, I felt totally at ease the entire time we talked. She is positive and encouraging. After our session I felt more motivated than I had in a long time.
June 9th 2015
Samantha has such a refreshing take on the world, so much insight and wisdom and compassion! She helped clear the cobwebs from my psyche, and then helped to give me a new perspective. I’ve had counselling and have met with a life coach once, but the outcome generally was a feeling of frustration that I wasn’t being heard. I believe this is because few professionals are able to be fully present during client sessions. Samantha is one of the few who are. She takes her work very seriously. She is very present with others, listens and asks questions to verify, offers excellent suggestions, and truly cares about each of her clients, while maintaining clear boundaries. This is a gift! I’m so happy I made the decision to ask her to work with me!

Great listener ! I really enjoyed our first session, and I am looking forward to the next one. Highly recommend Samantha for anyone looking for a life coach.
September 11th 2015
I really enjoyed talking to her, she made me feel comfortable and help establish some ways of improving myself which was the guidance I was looking for. I definitely want to build on this with her.
October 14th 2015
Samantha has a natural ability to make people feel comfortable, both in a group, and in their own skin. I have worked with her leading groups, and she attracts the most interesting people who are open and actively welcoming self discovery. I admire the way Samantha helps them find their way, through activities and discussion. Her group discussion leading skills are amazing! I have also attended her sessions as a participant. She is insightful, caring, honest, a great listener, considerate and wise. She knows life, is living it and helping others. If you haven’t already, you should sign up and get to know her and her people!

Samantha is the perfect life coach anyone can ask for. She has great communication skills; including listening to everything you have to say and analyzes everything you say in regards to all your situations and what your seeking help with and for. She not only offers advice within those areas your focusing on but she brings other issues to your attention that you may never thought of or may never have realized that can be improved for the better making a true difference in your life. She brings an intelligent thoughtful prospective to your life and what your maybe facing and going through. So far she is making a huge impact and difference in my life with certain health goals I have but I appreciate how she makes me realize other areas that require my attention that I need to focus on which in the end I never realized would effect my goals. Thanks to her I’m on a great successful journey so far to reach my goals and changing habits for the better to improve my life; I’m truly discovering myself and my inner feelings looking upon life with a different view and prospective thanks to Samantha. She also keeps me in line ensuring I’m improving and following what I promised myself I would do and change in order to keep my goals a reality which leads me to the right path. I highly recommend her as a life coach as she is truly my mentor and confidant. She is everything you would want a life coach to be; including caring, friendly and dedicated to guiding you to anything you require a life coach for. I had reached out to Samantha to reach specific health goals but realized how she will help me with all areas of my life to come; including personal habits, improving all relationships with others, being a better person, improving my life, a better healthier life style and my career. I feel she can guide anyone in the right direction in any situation or area of our lives.

Samantha is an excellent listener and adviser. She takes the time to go through what needs to be said and understood, and she sees the best in everybody. We met only once… but it was exactly what I needed at that time: her words echoed deeply in me. A precious encounter that made a big difference for me! I am very grateful for the attention and time she gave me on that very particular day… I strongly recommend her!
November 5th 2015
I cannot recommend Samantha enough. As a life coach, confident and friend, she has been (and continues to be) a cornerstone and inspiration of my own personal development journey over the past year. Samantha’s endless support, energy, encouragement and has allowed me to discover new ideas and different perspectives in all areas of my life, including career, health, relationships and well-being. 2015 has been an amazing year for me, probably one of the most life changing years of my life, and Samantha has played a key role in this transformation. I continue to look forward to meeting with her and having her in my life as a life coach and friend.

Samantha Barley will help you to acknowledge what you want to improve and guide you through changes by going step by step, respecting your own pace. She had a lot of Life experiences and her advices are effective. She will support you cheerfully and follow your evolution. So why wait ? Call her and see for yourself !
January 20th 2016
I only had a 1/2 hour session with Samantha – but from what I got out of it it felt like a days worth – she is so insightful and thoughtful, positive and assuring.
I recommend her to anyone seeking a second opinion on something going on in their life and a fresh outlook.
March 7th 2016
I’m grateful for the 6 weeks of coaching I had with Samantha. She was able to listen, hold a clear space for me & allow me to wake up my own intelligence.
May 4th 2016
I had been following Samantha Barley on her social media platforms for a few years before I took the plunge and attended her events downtown. I was super impressed by Samantha’s sunny personality upon first meeting her. I enjoy the casual atmosphere of her Self-Discovery group coaching sessions and always take home insight and tools that I can implement immediately. I brought my daughter with me the last time and she was inspired and reassured she is on the right track! I highly recommend Samantha for group and private coaching. She easily connects with people and quickly identifies individuals’ needs. If you are interested in personal growth, self-discovery and inspiration she is the person to talk to.
May 16th 2016
Sam is really good at what she does. I have been to psychologist, Therapist, Social workers…In such a short period (3 months so far) the lessons I have learned have by far exceeded any other. You can tell she genuinely loves what she does and that this is her true calling because of the care and attention she gives. I am so impressed with my growth so far and am enjoying the journey I couldn’t ask for a better guide. Amazing!
September 30th 2016
Samantha showed me the healing, constructive power of LOVING MYSELF, to praise myself for all the good things I do (as little and insignificant they may seem), to appreciate what I have (as minimum and insignificant I think it was), to deal with my losses (She gave me input about aspects of my life, that no one gave me before, which changed the suffering and what it seemed an eternal mourning for healing, forgiving and gratitude), to deal with rejection and to get out of my comfort zone; and to make this outlook a habit, a daily habit, at every time of the day.
And with all this guidance and coaching, she made me stronger. She has that special talent to go to the core of problematic areas I was dealing with and gave me very rich input and ways to deal with them and made me understand why I sometimes I got caught in mental traps; she’s very sharp in showing you there’s always a better way to see things, change the outlook, feel better and do better:
– I have learned to love myself, which has fixed so many fears in my life: I can handle rejection much better, it makes me find better and closer friends and be more patient when finding a partner.
– I can put limits easier. Now I praise myself for my successes and I respect myself for every little thing I do well; I don’t fear loneliness and I appreciate and I’m grateful for what I have, spiritually and materially.
– I have learned to accept my losses and I understand why it used to hurt me so bad in the past. I don’t suffer anymore the big losses in my life.
– I have learned how to get out of my comfort zone and I now know how transforming this is.
– I feel now I want to know more people and I’m more sociable.
And all this feels like magic! I feel very grateful for these teachings from Samantha.
I wish people wanting to change and improve their life have the opportunity to meet Samantha. She brings great value to the community with a powerful, transforming message.
October 27th 2016
Samantha has given me new perspectives on my life. She has given the tools I need to see things objectively. With her help I am able to get through the rough days without resorting to my old habits. She is great life coach who has great listening skills and provides helpful feedback. I highly recommend her. Samantha will help you on your path to self discovery by being there for you every step of the way.
November 1st 2016
Fantastic coach with an infectious zest for life – great empathetic listener, bespoke supportive approach – look forward to working with Samantha in the future. Highly recommended!
November 23rd 2016
I came to see Samantha about 1 year ago . I chose to work with Samantha because I immediately felt that her wise “know how” warmth, genuineness and calmness would be instrumental in my healing process. I came looking for answers and Sam safely guided me back to myself in a way only Sam knows how. Thank you for everything!
January 24th 2017
I loved the session with Samantha. She gave me very practical advice and knew what questions to ask me so that I can get clarity. Her coaching abilities and her experience as a coach speak for themselves.
February 22nd 2017
Loved the time and perspective that Samantha offered. With concise clarity and a friendly manner, she was able to ask the questions that I had to answer to clear up the haze around a difficult time! I highly recommend Samantha as a life coach. Awesomely positive and a great ear! Thanks to her help I’ve been in a happy relationship for almost 2 years now!
March 2nd 2017
Amazing session with Samantha! True to the recommendations I read about Sam, she is an effective coach. She is insightful, and within a short amount of time was able to get to a core blockage in my emotional body. She is kind, supportive and on point. Such a needed session for me considering how big of a blind spot I have been carrying within me. I hope to keep in touch and reach out for future guidance. Highly recommend skillful Samantha. Thank you!
March 9th 2017
Samantha was friendly and so very helpful. She didn’t spout out cookie-cutter advice – she really listened and realized what my key strengths and loves were and found fantastic solutions with actionable steps to help set me on the right path. I would definitely love to come back for another session again!
