About me

I believe that when we improve one's mindset, problems resolve themselves.  

I am a Senior Specialist Psychologist, CEO and Founder of Industry Doctor. I support people by coaching and mentoring them - their life and their business. I work on the premise of:

1. Assessing the current situation
2. Diagnosing problem areas
3. Providing a bespoke package of intervention, tailored to your needs
4. Following up to ensure improvements are made and maintained

When life and business is going great, we sometimes forget where we came from and what we need to continue thriving. We may fall into the trap of believing that we no longer need assistance because we 'hacked it'. However, that's when things can start to sour. Unfortunately, sometimes things can go wrong and we find ourselves firefighting crises to save the business.  

I work with people on multiple levels and this relates to various areas. This involves life coaching and business coaching.

Life coaching

Having worked in mental health services for over 10 years, I have become expert in supporting individuals to become the best versions of themselves, helping them thrive and live their best life rather than simply surviving. I work and help people who have difficulties with:

  • General Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Agoraphobia
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Trauma
  • Personality disorders
  • Health behaviours (e.g. eating, alcohol consumption, drug use)
  • Lifestyle choices
  • Other clinical diagnostic problems (e.g. anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychosis, bipolar disorder)

After exploring and making sense of your experiences, I provide intervention that is tailored specifically to your needs and goals. This may involve neurolinguistic programming, cognitive behavioural therapy, cognitive analytical therapy, psychodynamic therapy, communication and assertiveness skills training, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing and many others. These are all therapies in which I have been trained and become clinically skilled.

Business coaching

I support people and their businesses by both:

  • Assessing difficulties and crises faced, providing concrete solutions to solve problems.
  • Supporting business growth, to help you improve your business visibility, efficiency, methods of operation, services, and profits.
  • Creating and supporting plans to become proactive and eliminating potential crises whilst supporting further development.

Work is completed via consultation, training, workshops, and ongoing mentoring. A bespoke package of intervention is developed to ensure that it is suitable for your business, the size of the company, the problems faced, and navigating an ever-changing climate. Furthermore, I believe it is essential to provide ongoing support in order to follow up on agreed action plans, assess the outcome of actions, and identify further elements required to ensure optimal outcome for you and your business. 

Using my years of training and experience, examples of how I support businesses include:

  • Improving motivation
  • Improving staff morale
  • Improving staff dynamics
  • Developing effective team working
  • Improving communication and assertiveness skills
  • Developing goals and meeting targets
  • Improving customer services
  • Improving staff resilience
  • Improving staff retention
  • Adapting to changing environments and competitors
  • Supporting staff accountability and responsibility
  • Improving sales and income
  • Improving profits
  • Supporting mental health first aiders

Allow me to help you improve and grow your mindset, business, and profits.

Training, qualifications & experience

Welcoming you to the best version of yourself

Hi, I'm Dr Sarah. I have worked with adults (aged 18+years) since January 2011 as a coach in supporting their wellbeing, finances, and business. 

I am a Certified Business Coach and Expert Clinical Psychologist specialising in healing trauma, improving confidence, and create financial freedom  to support you in creating abundance and prosperity in your life and business.  I do this via 1-1 work, intense retreats, and group programmes (the work will be tailored to your needs).


Developing my own practice and using my experience as a Clinical Psychologist and Business Coach, I have experience in helping adults struggling with:

  • Limiting beliefs
  • Self-esteem and confidence that has held them back.
  • Burnout, stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Big and little traumas that affect their wellbeing, emotions, and their approach to life.
  • Money 'ceilings' where they struggle to increase their income despite trying very hard.
  • Repeating old unhealthy behavioural patterns again and again, even though they can 'see' the pattern and they can't help but 'do it' again.

I have helped hundreds of people, and I can help you too to:

  • Feel more confident, energetic, happier, calmer, less stressed, and lighter. Feel empowered and in control over your life.
  • Be free from limiting beliefs (the world is your oyster!)
  • Being free from traumas
  • Let go of unhelpful beliefs and parts of your life that do not serve you.
  • Being extremely motivated, determined, and dedicated to take helpful and important actions that are impactful and will get you moving towards your goals in your personal, business, and financial life.
  • Break financial ceilings so you can make more money in your business and attract abundance into your life.
  • Improving relationships, interactions, and communication skills.

I have supported hundreds of people, and I can help you too, by: 

  • Using somatic (bodily), emotional, mental, behavioural, and unconscious work. I do this to support genuine change from the inside out so that you truly change to your better self, limiting the risk of returning back to old patterns. 
  • Challenging limiting beliefs
  • Re-programming subconscious old and unhelpful beliefs and creating new healthy belief systems.
  • Exploring the root of difficult emotions, triggers, and understanding these and supporting healing these through compassion, acceptance and forgiveness.
  • Unlearning old unhelpful habits that do not serve you and creating new and helpful behaviours that serve the higher and better version of you.
  • Supporting people to be accountable, self-disciplined, and take on personal responsibility.
  • Embodiment work, utilising mindfulness, body and breath work, visualisation, and manifestation.
  • Helping you create your business plan and monitor your progress to ensure growth
  • Given my expertise, I also integrate the following: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Relational Dynamics, Victim Triad, Motivational Interviewing, Compassionate Focused Therapy, Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Mindfulness.

I offer group programmes, 1-1 programmes, and retreats depending on your needs.

All work I do is tailored to your specific needs after an initial deep dive session with you.

Below is feedback received from previous clients I have worked with:

  • "I was struggling with beliefs like 'I wasn't good enough' and 'people will judge me and reject me' if I showed more of myself or tried to do something different. I was struggling to work and present in meetings or market myself because these thoughts kept haunting me. I have a lot of big and little t traumas and working with Dr Sarah has been amazing. I was able to heal some of these traumas and find my inner truth. I felt more stable and certain in myself. I was able to let go of these negative beliefs and stop the negative self-talk, and somehow I became so much more confident. I feel confident in my body, how I show up, in my personality. I got a new job that was a massive step up than my old job, I present in meetings and I don't even get nervous. I don't get scared of what other people think of me any more - their thoughts are not my problem! Really recommend Dr Sarah to anyone."
  • "Literally life changing. I kept having flashbacks of old traumas coming back to me, and after working with Sarah on her 3 day retreat, I felt instantly lighter (cliche I know, but so true). I felt so much happier and I still feel so much happier (I'm writing this 4 months after the retreat). I have been able to let go of the trauma, I no longer get flashbacks, and my business is also doing so much better. Couldn't recommend Sarah enough."
  • "We went through a lot of my business planning and strategies. I worked through some of my money mindset, blocks to money and why I kept hitting a money ceiling. I was earning £120K per year for 4-5 years before working with Sarah. After doing the internal work and implementing new ways of strategizing, my income immediately started to spike. 4 months after working with Sarah I hit my £120K which I would have done in the entire year prior! Now I'm forecasting my business revenue to be £300K over the next year. Truly grateful for the opportunity to work with her. Brilliant coach!"
  • "Dr Sarah has helped in ways I really did not imagine. I thought I was pretty much spot on with a lot of things around money mindset and my business, but she taught me so much more. I learnt so much about my own internal blocks that was stopping me from reaching the next stage in my business. I went through the re-programming of subconscious thoughts and that helped so much. I was able to let go of deep unhelpful beliefs I had about money, my business and work, and my relationships with other people. I was able to change so that I literally went from earning £3K each month to earning £10K then £15K months. My relationship with my wife and kids are so much better, we aren't fighting any more and I'm less stressed. So amazing."
