A conversation about how being weird and following your heart is the way...

This week I had a chance to talk to Sami Blackford who I first met at a Red Tent I ran a few years ago.  She told us her story, of how she had acne as a teenager and how nothing worked to clear it up.  I had also had awful skin at that age.  It kept me away from parties and socialising and I hated it.  My response was to withdraw and hide. Sami's was to set about making her own skincare products, learning about plants and herbs from old books, on her kitchen. 

In this podcast episode Sami shares her journey from there to a field of organic plants and an ethical business run intuitively, led her values and her passion.

(Ps...I've met her in the flesh...her skin is perfect!)

I am a stress and well-being coach who supports women to ask for what they want and look after their own needs so that they can hear their heart's call and live a more empowered and meaningful life. I draw on experience and training in bereavement, domestic abuse, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, Transactional Analysis and other therapeutic approaches to get you loving you. I have 2 sons who I love loads (and who sometimes drive me crazy). I'm a Barefoot Trained coach and I got a distinction for my post-grad cert in 2011. I have a PhD which led me to look at Emotional Intelligence in schools and I have a number of academic and professional qualifications in various types of therapy. I have practiced meditation since I went to India over 25 years ago and I'm currently training to be a yoga teacher. I have written a couple of books, I teach psychology and work with a large variety of coaching clients.
