My name is Sam Akowe, Managing Director of Life Choice Coaching. I am a qualified Life Coach, Mentor, Author of God, Faith and Reality (a motivational book). I am a member of The International Association of Professional Organizations (IAPO) and abides by their strict codes of ethics. I have BA (Hons) Humanities (Behavioral Sciences) and Certificate in Counselling from a London University and College. I have over 15 years work experience supporting vulnerable young people and adults with diverse issues ranging from drug and alcohol misuse, ex-offenders and dislodged young persons in creating career paths through education/training and generally reconnecting with society.
Having spent 15 years of my career at various levels in the Supporting People Industry, I found there was nothing more personally fulfilling than to assist and witness others exceeding their full potential, and to encourage and facilitate positive change.
I enjoy working with individual and commercial clients to focus and attain their goals and to manage and assist change in an agile environment using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP-based coaching sessions will help you fully understand the barriers you are facing and develop new, more constructive strategies for coping with life’s challenges.
I became passionate in Life Choice issues 8 years ago while dealing with personal issues of my own and studying the life style of close associates and people of certain communities. My personal discovery coupled with my studies of Behavioural Sciences enhance my skills in supporting and encouraging my clients to attain their personal and corporate goals.
This is a synopsis of my Coaching approach. I welcome you to contact me for an initial no obligation discussion to see how I can help you.
