Samantha is a dynamic, caring and skilled coach who uses her compassion and heart to help guide her hypnotherapy practice. She also has extensive expertise in the areas of nutrition and fitness and helps her clients deal with emotional eating, body image issues and healthy lifestyle. She is down to earth, encouraging and kind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her coaching services!
I worked with Samantha back in July of 2020 and her hypnosis program is totally awesome. I could tell she really puts her heart and soul into her work. Best of all she got me great, lasting results that are ongoing to this day.
I feel so lucky to have found Samantha and would recommend her services to anyone. While initially skeptical that hypnotherapy would be effective in a virtual setting, I was happily surprised at how much positive change I saw after just my first session. Six weeks later, I am more present with my family, at work, and have a completely different mindset about my life. Samantha's impact has been incredible and I'm confident my learnings will last me a lifetime. Thank you so much Samantha!

About me

Hi there! Thanks for checking out my profile. I can't wait to get to know you. I'll get the ball rolling by sharing my story.

After several years in a corporate sales environment, I hit that magic number on the scale that finally made me step into a gym and hire a personal trainer. In just 3 months, I dropped down to 11% bodyfat…and gained an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise that acted as the catalyst that transformed my life.

As perfect storms go, not long after my extreme weight loss, my marriage ended, and I was let go from my corporate job. Double-whammy! However, not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path. In my case - this was certainly true. This time period was the catalyst that snowballed into a relentless desire to understand the human psyche, and how it can be transformed from our own worst enemy into our best friend in making positive life changes... This led me to embrace a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to health, as I quickly came to learn that the human body is all interconnected, and treating these components separately most often leads to limiting results.

Now, as a personal trainer, health coach and hypnotherapist, I help clients develop the heart-set, mind-set, AND the skill-set to achieve and maintain their goals for life.

Whether you are looking to lose weight, stop smoking/drinking, reduce stress/anxiety, or tackle another life-enhancing goal, I would be honored and privileged to support you.

My Philosophy of Care

In working with me, I use a two-pronged approach to helping clients achieve their goals.

First, I use hypnosis to seek out and overcome the root cause behind their issue. Together, we eliminate any erroneous limiting beliefs and feelings standing between them and their success.

Second, I help clients implement the necessary daily habits and skillsets to achieve their dreams.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The first visit (initial consultation) is all about getting to know each other! I'll have you paint a picture of what is bringing you to me (i.e. the change you would like to make) and then I'll explain my services, and together we will decide if it is the right fit. After this initial introduction, clients leave with a roadmap for the future they are heading towards, leaving them feeling more motivated, excited, and hopeful than ever before!

My Inspiration

My own personal journey to self-love and understanding inspired me to help others on the same path, and subsequently, the more people I helped, the more they inspire me!

I worked with Samantha back in July of 2020 and her hypnosis program is totally awesome. I could tell she really puts her heart and soul into her work. Best of all she got me great, lasting results that are ongoing to this day.
Sam is an incredible coach who helped me overhaul my eating habits AND developed a customized workout plan for me so I could simultaneously tone-up and improve my bouldering skills. She got results! I got stronger and fitter and finally got over the "wall" I had hit at the gym. On top of that, she's a caring and wonderful person who lights up everyone's day. I can't recommend her highly enough.
During the Covid period I gained 10lbs. I felt defeated. I reached out to Sam for help because she has a background in personal training, nutrition and hypnotherapy. and I wanted somebody with all the tools to help me succeed. In as little as one session with her, Sam put me at ease and allowed me to refocus my thinking on what is possible. Through the work I did with her, I could visualize the results I wanted and that gave me power to not feel like I'm digging myself out of an insurmountable hole. Her sessions also helped me come to my own realization of the limiting beliefs I subconsciously put on myself, that were preventing me from losing the weight previously. I don't think this would have been possible without Samantha's guidance. Sam helped me "clear out the gutters" so I could get mentally and emotionally back on track. Thank you for guiding me from defeat to victory!
Sam’s caring dedication would be difficult to find in another! She REALLY cares about getting it right and will make sure you are happy with your results!! Her relaxation recording may be my favorite I’ve ever listened to; it starts out as a tiptoe through a mystical PacNW forest and ends up at a Shakespearean wedding scene full of possibilities and magic!!!
During hypnosis with Sam I felt comfortable and safe and heard. Because of our sessions, I stopped letting life just happen to me, and I gained the confidence to make my own decisions and stand by my own side. I've learned to voice what is important to me in a relationship and life. Moving forward I have more compassion and acceptance for myself everyday, and I take steps to live the life that I want every day.
Thank you Sam for the hypnosis journey you lead me on. Thanks to the work we did together... I no longer get that sick feeling in my gut I have to deal with money situations. Plus an added , I no longer have to carry other people's burden as my own. I can care without carrying. If you are considering hypnosis...DO IT! Sam is amazing!
I knew I needed to focus on my health but lacked the willpower to stick to any workout regime or diet I tried. Knowing Sam had changed her career path to help others achieve their health goals, I reached out and took my first step toward changing my life forever. I've done two hypnotherapy packages with her (one to better manage my eating habits and another to help me manage work stress) and I exercise with her every week. I started seeing changes in my daily routine almost immediately, and I now feel more in control of my life and my health. I can't recommend Sam enough!
Shout out to Samantha Smith Shaw, my new friend and also my hypnotherapist who has done wonders for me!! I came to her with a few areas of personal growth I wanted to work on ~ mainly addressing my fears that are holding me back from my huge goals in life and also ending my self-sabotaging behaviors (which were ALL CONNECTED!) After 6 weeks of amazing discussion, hypnosis, targeted follow ups and focused plans of action going forward, I feel so much more confident and unafraid of future change and growth!! Keep in mind, this was all done across country via Zoom! How great is technology for this purpose alone? Samantha has the perfect gentle, relaxing coaching voice for her profession. I highly recommend learning more if you'd like to figure out how you can become your best self!! Thank you Samantha so much!!
I met Sam when I had reached out to a community about binge-eating. Sam suggested hypnotherapy to get to the root of my poor eating habits. Sam worked some magic over six weeks and helped me recover memories that I had buried deep. Through her support, I was able to address my emotions, create new habit, and redirect my energies. Now, I am mindful about my eating and chose things other than food when emotional. If you are curious about methods to help anything you may be battling internally, I highly recommend that you reach out to Sam for assistance. Her calming voice allowed me to quickly get into a hynotic state so that we can get the most of my sessions. Follow her business page at www.facebook.com/SamWiseCoachingAndHypnosis, or check out her website www.samwisehypnosis.com. You won’t regret reaching out to her!
I have done weight loss in the past, several times. This time I really wanted to understand the mechanism that keeps bringing the weight back up for me. Samantha was an awesome guide on this exploration. She helped me paint a whole picture of my relationship with food, with my past, with unconscious beliefs, mindless habits, and forgiveness. By combining effective techniques, keen insights into human behavior, and a wonderful ability to listen with compassion, she led me, again and again, to fully experience what was holding me back and how I could free myself. Hypnosis with Samantha felt like the best cutting-edge techniques and advice, delivered to me in a state of deep calm and trust. After six weeks, I have dropped seven pounds. My body is shrinking while my world is expanding with freed-up energy, new joy and possibilities. And--nothing magic to this process--just a brilliant combination of all the right ingredients!
My experience with hypnosis has been life changing! If you're thinking it's "magic" and that you will not be fully present and participating then I invite you to reconsider; the process is nothing like the TV hype. I was completely put at ease during my first session with Samantha. She was professional and friendly and we dove really deep into my desired outcomes and got very specific about what success looks like. I felt very comfortable being open and vulnerable. I noticed results immediately after our first session and each week I gained new confidence and skills. Part of the process I really appreciated was the personalization Sam provided and I feel that's what allowed us to really get to the root of my issues and transform them into behaviors that served me. I learned new tools that I can utilize for the rest of my life! I'm so grateful that I found Sam-Wise! THANK YOU!
Sam has a gentle and amazing way of getting 'beneath the surface' to help you on your healing journey! Her voice is like a warm blanket that guides you towards paths of pain, fear and resistance so they can be exposed and healed. I've been thru therapy many times before but this therapy was deeper...it got to the root of my issues and brought me such understanding and freedom from my past. Hypnosis is not scary. It was a deeper thought process... like a meditation that she guided me thru. I remember everything and she also sent me a recording of each of my sessions to review and think upon. I can't say enough about this woman's passion to genuinely want to see her clients come to a place of wholeness and peace. She goes beyond the call to assist you. I am forever grateful! Highly recommend Sam! This was worth the time and investment and I'm so very happy and satisfied with the outcome!
