Sarah specialises in working with women who feel that fear and self-doubt are directing their lives, robbing them of opportunities and eclipsing their true selves.
Women who really want to make a difference in the world but feel unable to push themselves forwards out of their "safe zone", resulting in them feeling unfulfilled and increasingly disconnected from themselves and others.
Sarah decided to train as a coach after discovering the power of coaching first-hand.
In 2012, after months of unexplained and debilitating fatigue, she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Hypermobility Syndrome, a hereditary connective-tissue disorder. She was referred to the Changing Outlook on Pain Experiences (COPE) programme at University College Hospital in London, of which coaching was a core component.
The specialist support on the course helped her to achieve things that she'd considered downright impossible, due to the increasingly restrictive way she'd been living life due to pain and fatigue. This gave her the most amazing feeling, which she has described as, "I felt free, with a sense that I'd come back to myself". She knew that she wanted to put her psychology background to use helping others to achieve the same feeling, and so trained as a coach.
As well as a Diploma in Transformational Coaching, Sarah has an MSc Psychology and a career history spanning various industries. She has extensive experience in supporting children and young adults with Special Educational Needs and is passionate about finding what works for different brains, being a woman with ADHD herself. This, combined with her lived experience as a woman with a chronic health condition, gives her a unique perspective on life.
"I came to Sarah with a heavy heart and a cloudy head. I expected a complex analysis of why I felt the way I did. Instead, Sarah drilled straight to the point. She gave me clear, simple and practical advice on how to change my life perspective. I had faith in the process and applied her guidance, every week. Do the same and you will notice a marked difference in your life. I learned to open up and connect to others, and that has opened doors." - Sally, London.
"I was feeling really unsure of how to talk about my skills and work out how these transfer into me starting a coaching business and what I uniquely offer clients. Sarah is friendly and straight to the point. She listens and engages well and her questioning got me closer to the essence of what was going on. In the space of only a few sessions I felt myself moving forward in my thinking and shifting my mindset from a narrow focus to one of greater expanse. I've made the decision to finally leave my job this summer to start my business. This feels very energising and exciting. I've stopped looking specifically for my skill sets and started looking holistically of what my total life experience can bring to others." - Nana, London
