Sarah Hughes - Sarah Hughes Solutions
Do you feel stuck in your life or overwhelmed by having too much to do or being unhappy with where you find yourself or do you have symptoms of depression or CFS/ME?
I can help you to move out of your current state to where you want to be. I help with a number of issues, including work, family, relationship and health issues to find a way through the difficulties and have the life you want.
Where do you want to be?
I start by understanding your world and what your current situation is, I then look at what your outcome is for coaching. With different coaching strategies, I help you to find a way through the maze to this goal - the outcome you desire.
How do I coach?
I offer face to face coaching (in the Bristol and Hereford areas), telephone or Skype coaching (elsewhere). My niche is working with clients who feel overwhelmed, where areas in life are becoming difficult to cope with, ie work, family, health (particularly stress related conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome/M.E.). I think clients should enjoy the coaching process, so I use a variety of techniques, such as metaphorical strategies, some NLP, visualisation, relaxation and help my clients do whatever it takes to shift their lives back into balance. I make coaching fun and enjoyable, so that by the end of the first session, clients are excited to see what follows!
Who am I?
I am a Life Coach and Strategic Interventionist Coach and have been qualified since March 2014
I know what it is like to be both the coach and the coachee as I had Life Coaching myself in 2004 during a difficult and stressful time in my life. I had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and depression earlier that year. I found coaching extremely beneficial, helping me to see a way through a very trying period.
I fully recovered from CFS in 2012 and the final step to my recovery was using the work of Tony Robbins, credited with initiating the Life Coaching industry over three decades ago. I can help you towards recovery more rapidly thanks to this process.
Following my success, I decided to not only train as a life coach in the UK, but to also train with the Robbins-Madanes Center for Strategic Intervention (USA) as a coach which also helped me enormously.
I ask my clients to do what I have done myself and what worked for me.
As a Strategic Interventionist Coach I do "whatever it takes" to help my clients get to where they want to be!

'I came to Sarah when I really needed to transform my life through improving my self esteem and relationship issues. I had previously had lots of counselling and was slightly sceptical about life coaching, but decided to give it a go. I'm so glad that I did. Even after just a few sessions I started to feel more like the old me who was stronger and happier. The techniques that Sarah uses in her approach are extremely powerful and life changing. I am now in a much better place and able to cope with life's difficulties better than I ever could. I am eternally grateful to Sarah for the amazing work that she did with me. Thank you!' Kim, Bristol
"I love having Sarah Hughes as my coach. As a qualified coach myself I both understand the value of coaching and have found it difficult to find a good coach. I chose Sarah because of the insight and intuition she showed when helping a friend one day. My instincts were right! In the last 8 months we have talked about such a variety of things but all leading to the same goal - to help me get ready and set up my new business. I'm ready both emotionally and practically, way ahead of my own expectations. I cannot sum up properly here all the ways that Sarah has helped. In each session we have done something different. I think and move at high speed and Sarah is flexible with that, knowing when to let me flow and when to pause and reflect or maybe to challenge. I started off with an awareness of the process (this is inevitable when you coach yourself). Now I just trust her and launch into our session. It's a pleasure to recommend Sarah to you, as a coach. She's the best!" Michelle, Bristol
"I am living testimony to Sarah Hughes' amazing coaching skills - as is my mum. Sarah really is talented, compassionate, focused; she has all the important attributes of a great coach to guide you with care and compassion to finding your answers, thank you Sarah" Saira, Miami.
"Ever since the very first coaching session with Sarah, I have always felt listened to and supported. Sarah has the ability to ask exactly the right questions to help me clarify my thoughts and move forwards. I am now much clearer about where I want to go and how to get there. I strongly recommend Sarah to anyone thinking of coaching." Celia, Bristol
