If you are thinking about reducing or even quitting drinking alcohol then these are

some of the ways a Recovery Coach could help:

• Providing you with moral support as they travel alongside you on this journey – believing in you.

• Creating a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can talk through your feelings, emotions and fears.

• Holding you accountable and ensuring you stay on track as you move towards the goals that you have set.

• Asking the right questions and offering reflections to help you reach clarity and understand why you do what you do.

• Providing practical advice based on their own experiences.

• Enabling you to discover a path which will provide your life with more joy and meaning.

Tribe Sober offers a 20 minute introductory chat to all new members and to anyone attending our Zoom workshop.

A minimum of four coaching sessions is recommended to bring about real and lasting change.

Our coaching takes place via Zoom or Face to Face where possible . For availability and fee structure, please write to coaching@nulltribesober.com



When I became sober in 2015, I knew that this was it. My intuition also guided me to do a coaching course. I decided that I wanted to help others (especially women) who drink. I want to guide women into sobriety if they are battling to ditch the booze. I use my own experience as an ex-drinker, and I mentor from my heart.

I enjoyed my three-week intensive training with the Ubuntu Addiction Community Trust (UACT), founded by David Collins. I chose the Peer Recovery Specialist Certificate course to be able to support my peers to stop drinking. My skills steer towards listening, asking open-ended deep questions, mentoring and guiding.

Alcohol addiction is close to my heart: my mother is a functioning alcoholic; my sister went to rehab, and I had to stop my grey-area drinking from negatively impacting on my life. The course has opened my eyes, heart, and mind to understanding addiction. Our brains and our immune systems have so much power over us! We have the power to lead healthy, substance-free lives. Let’s do it together!

More about me: I am a middle-aged vegetarian mother of two boys, Jordan and Jean. This has made me who I am – I love being a mother. When I became sober, I became even more of a passionate health freak who loves to walk, hike, garden, do yoga and just be OUTSIDE as much as possible in Nature. I did my master’s in environmental education and will be bringing Nature into my recovery coaching techniques.

As we offer a 20 minute introductory chat as part of the membership subscription and also the public workshop offering, I am always delighted to work with our workshop “graduates” – using our session to review the learnings from the workshop, as well as to refine and track the action plan. My best role is as a recovery or sobriety coach to my sisters in sobriety.

I chose to become a coach because coaching was immensely helpful to me in my recovery, as well as in finding my own true north.

Together with Tribe Sober, it became the cornerstone to helping me think, reflect and navigate my way through obstacles and dysfunctional habits, enabling me to become more self-aware, as well as achieving goals that improved the quality of my life.

Coaching provided me with the training to manage my thoughts, emotions, actions and therefore results. I discovered that my brain is my most powerful tool.

When coaching, I listen to what a person is saying, not only with their words, but also with their tone of voice and body language. I coach the whole person – the mind, the heart and the body. The most important part of the coaching experience is to feel that it is a safe and confidential environment, as honesty is the key for both Coach and client in order for transformation to take place.

I have completed my Coach Practitioner Certification with the South African College of Applied Psychology, which is accredited with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and COMENSA, which is the SAQA-recognised non-statutory professional body for coaching and mentoring in South Africa.

I have previous experience in Adult Basic Education at Liberty Life, Training and Development (Steinmueller) and Office Administration at DEG – German Development Finance Company.

I am passionate about ongoing learning, mindfulness and the field of neuroscience in coaching. Recently I completed an IFC accredited course through Coaches Rising on Neuroscience of Change 2020. In August 2021 I was certified as an “Inner Mammal Trainer” with the Inner Mammal Institue. I am also a member of Self Coaching Scholars at the Life Coach School

I also like attending Nia dance classes, as well as storytelling and family constellation workshops.

I offer 20 minute introductory chat for prospective Tribe Sober Members. Please feel free to contact me directly at coaching@nulltribesober.com or whatsapp / call me on +27 (0)82 929 5264.

This is what I know

Change is possible. Through my own personal journey I am able to equip you with the skills to discover and leverage off your own inner resilience to overcome any perceived obstacle to living your best life.

In her years in the media, Samantha interviewed thousands of people from around the world. These personalities included celebrities, world leaders, authors, artists, students, teachers, criminals, and everyday people. What stood out for Samantha was that everyone had a story to tell, and more importantly was seeking to better understand who they were and how they fit in the world.

Samantha draws on those experiences and insights and has focused her career to helping other channel their energies in the direction of personal growth and success. Samantha sees coaching as a facilitation tool which helps individuals unlock their true potential and make critical life decisions which are often easily ignored in favour of complacency and comfort. Samantha has coached business executives, media personalities, students, and medical professionals, to name a few, to break through the personal barriers and achieve their goals.

Samantha is also deeply committed to helping people with addiction challenges to work through recovery and find the value of life without addiction.
