  • Joining the Hungry for Happiness Certification program has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only have I learned the most transformational tools and frameworks to help my future clients heal from their disordered eating patterns, but this program has allowed me to transcend into becoming my highest self. The support from Sam and the HFH team and all the other women in the program is absolutely incredible and very encouraging. I’m more confident than ever in myself as a human and in myself as a coach.

  • The Certification Program has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! This course is laid out in a very systematic way…the realizations I had and now integrate into my own life is what has set me up to become someone who can help others. The support you receive from HFH is everything you would want and hope for in a program. They are always there to help, guide, and mentor you throughout the program, and you get to train from Sam, who is a successful entrepreneur and leader in this field. I would highly recommend the Certification Program!

  • I am forever grateful for finding Hungry for Happiness. I have discovered so much about myself, and I have discovered the direction I want to take my coaching business. Sam knows her stuff! What I love most is the work we do on ourselves before we are allowed to help others – it really helps you embody the tools and frameworks you’re taught. I am excited about the future of my business, and I know it will be successful because of the foundation Sam and her team have helped me create.

  • The Certification Program has changed who I am as a person and the trajectory of my life and business! As a gym owner for 9 years, I tried to help clients with the emotional piece, but without actual training, I was never able to create long-term transformation. Thanks to the program, I know how to truly help my clients. I have a gal I’ve worked with for 10 years, and she’s had more breakthroughs after implementing this curriculum than ever! The Certification Program will change your life and give you the skills and tools to change the lives of your clients!

  • I feel I have finally found other women who believe in shifting and changing from the inside out, not looking for the next fad to transform your body and your life.  I couldn’t imagine my life without Samantha Skelly at Hungry for Happiness! Ending the battle with food and finding body freedom has not only has impacted my life, but the lives of women around me.  Thanks to this program I have created a podcast, hosted retreats, a mastermind for moms, and I consistently book clients!

  • My favorite part of the program is diving into personal development. In particular I'm enjoying exploring more about my inner child. There is so much to sort through here – it has been confronting at times, but I know that I need to have more awareness around where she is holding me back from being my best self.

  • Weeks leading up to the Hungry For Happiness Coaching Certification Program, I nearly withdrew myself from the program due to the fear of not being able to commit financially. However,  my intuition made it clear to me that I couldn't turn this opportunity down. I have gained friendships that my soul knows will last a lifetime, amazing mentors that provide so much encouragement and support, and Sam Skelly who inspires and guides us through one of the most transformative and healing journeys I have yet been on.

  • The Hungry for Happiness Certification Program has been the best investment I have made for myself. Going into the program I just thought I would be able to help women overcome their battles with food and body image but it is so much more than that. I have learned so much about myself and it has given me a different perspective on everything. I am confident this program provided me with everything I need to help women overcome their battles with food and their body AND create whatever life they want for themselves.

  • It’s hard to put into a few words the magnitude of how my life has changed with the Hungry for Happiness coaching program. Sam and the other women in the program have helped me discover things about myself that go way deeper than food and body. I have experienced shifts in my life that I never imagined possible. The concepts we learn are so profound but Sam has a special way of easing us into them so we can fully embody and truly integrate the work. I can’t wait to share this life changing work with the world!

  • My biggest win so far in the Certification Program has been to feel into my body, to learn to trust the very vessel that my soul has occupied. I am learning to strengthen my intuition just as if it were my bicep haha. I joined this program not because of my relationship with food, but because there was this voice inside of me telling me that I was made to do more. I get to step into my purpose with the help of the amazing women within this community. So grateful!

  • My first breakthrough in the Certification Program was learning to break down the ways I feel and process. The program helped give my mind something to do, which creates the ‘pause’ versus just reacting or behaving as I normally did, and that was enough time for me to separate out what was going on. I learned how much my mind was on autopilot and how I could take my life back by not letting it run the show. The alignment work was the icing on the cake! It’s what made everything click for me. I now know that when I am vibrating high life flows.
