About me

Are you at a crossroads in your life? Unhappy with your career and uncertain about the future? Would you like to reorientate your life, but don't know where to start? Working together we can develop a tailored plan of action, using practical tools for change to enable you to achieve your goals.

Personal development coaching

My coaching programmes provide the support you need in developing the skills and self-awareness to manage your life effectively. Together, we will assess your current situation, make a plan and work through any barriers to achievement. Areas that may benefit from personal development coaching include assertiveness and motivation. Whatever challenges you face, coaching is a useful tool for clarifying your options and attaining your goals.

Career coaching

We spend a great deal of time at work, so it is important to make career choices that are right for us as individuals. It may be that you want to develop your career, or take a new path altogether. You may want to negotiate a pay rise; work on procrastination; resolve conflict or manage your time more effectively. Whatever the issue, career coaching can be a useful tool to identify problems and come up with solutions.

Health coaching

Many people feel that their health would benefit from changes to their lifestyle, perhaps by taking more exercise, eating more healthily or getting more sleep. Health coaching can support you in deciding what your priorities are, open your mind to new ways of thinking and keep you focussed on your goals. It is useful for creating and developing strategies for achieving and maintaining health-related goals; managing your time better and making space for a healthier routine; making decisions regarding health issues and dealing with other changes relating to your wellbeing.

My background

Having reached a crossroads in my career and personal life, I made the decision to train as a life coach in 2002. My unique set of skills and life experience are particularly relevant to my work in the areas of personal development, careers and  health. An experienced, qualified coach and master practitioner of NLP, I have also worked as a volunteer for a cancer charity, offering coaching to people with cancer, their carers and loved ones.

Further information


“I have had a number of coaching sessions with Sara, which I initially arranged to address my problems with time management. The help that she gave me went much further than I had expected, enabling me to explain and understand deep reasons for different aspects of my behaviour and building up a set of simple strategies to help me make changes. The coaching has been extremely beneficial and I feel very lucky to have had this experience to work from.” Mrs FS

“I was a little dubious about coaching at first, but I thought I would give it a go. When I first spoke to Sara, she put my mind at rest and made me feel very comfortable in her company. I have learnt so much, not only about myself, but about others too. I have learnt to manage my time more positively and become a more confident and assertive person. I have also learnt that saying the word ‘No’ is acceptable! My life has changed dramatically since I started my coaching sessions with Sara and it’s all for the better. I would highly recommend her to everyone. Several people have commented on the new me and I have to say that it’s all down to Sara teaching me the new skills to make the changes I have made. Thank you Sara.” Ms RN

“I wanted the confidence to drive on motorways - something I was afraid of doing. I was comfortable driving on ordinary roads but had a fear of motorways. During our sessions you certainly gave me confidence by giving me small goals to aim for e.g. by first driving on the motorway with someone in the passenger seat and doing just a short journey. When I was confident doing that I managed to drive by myself for about 9 miles on the motorway. I remember you asking me what my biggest worry was and it was about getting lost but you talked me through it and I had worked out a plan to get myself back on track.” Mrs RD
