Sam Patterson | ICF Accredited Professional Certified Coach | Life coach, career coach, business coach, executive coach, sea change coach. Torquay, Surf Coast, Geelong.

The fact that you're here says three things:

  • You know that you have the potential to be and do more
  • You want to explore that potential
  • You're ready to take action

Coaching may be the best thing you've never done or maybe you've had an experience of coaching before and you're ready to take it to another level. 

Whatever it is that you want to achieve, my job is to partner with you to get there.


There are so many coaches. Why choose to work with me?

Of the 2500 or so coaches in Australia, only 3% have the International Coach Federation designation of 'Professional Certified Coach'.

I am the only coach in the Surf Coast and Geelong region who holds the credential.

The title doesn't matter, I'm interested in you. I'm here to find out where you want to be in your life and partner with you to get there.

What will you achieve through coaching?

In short, heaps. It's really up to you. 

Your goals might be personal, or they may be professional. For most people it's a combination of both.

You may want to focus on material things or spend time aligning your actions with your values.

Likely, we'll work on a combination of all those things.

Coaching will help you to create the life that is in harmony with who you are and where you want to be.

We will always work to your agenda

In your coaching program we'll work on what is most important to you.

In no particular order, this may include your: career, fitness, finance, business, relationships, time, planning, balance, energy, wellbeing, confidence, assertiveness, personal or career transition, sea-change, values, emotional intelligence, leadership....

Or it might be other things. It's entirely up to you.


What should you look for when choosing a coach?

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a coach.

You'll want to make sure that your coach is a good 'fit' for you and that you have confidence in them being able to work with you to get to where you want to be.

You'll also want to make sure that your coach is qualified, experienced and works to a professional code of ethics.

Look for a coach who has undergone training with an International Code Federation (ICF) approved training provider and who is also a current member of the ICF. If in doubt, ask questions!

How can we get started?

The first thing to do is to give me a call on 0430 337 114 or send me an email at sam@sampatterson.com.au

I'd really like to get to know a bit about what you're wanting to achieve through coaching, talk with you about how I work and answer any questions that you might have.
