Samantha Tomkinson


Samantha Tomkinson started her journey as a psychologist in 2002 after working in a commercial banking environment for a number of years. She became intrigued with the dynamics of people, their differences and strengths, their communication styles and their leadership capabilities.

She qualified as a Chartered Occupational Psychologist in the UK whilst working for SHL, the global leaders in psychometric assessment. She worked extensively with senior leaders and organisations across the public and private sectors helping them assess and develop their senior leadership capability.

Samantha is known for her challenging yet supportive facilitation style and ability to navigate multiple personalities in order to achieve the end goal, be it in a 1:1 coaching setting or group facilitation.

As well as being a registered psychologist, Sam is a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner and is qualified in the facilitation of many psychometrics including MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator), HDS (Hogan’s suite), Strengthscope, Wave and OPQ (Occupational Personality Questionnaire).

The organisations she has worked with include KPMG, PWC, Ballance Agri-nutrients, HSBC, BT,  Veolia, Fonterra and Vodafone. 

She started her own company in 2015 to work with individuals, leaders and organisations, in the UK and Australasia. She helps them achieve their greater potential by building the understanding of their own minds and the minds of others.
