About me

The work we do together can support you to understand yourself more fully, enhance your confidence, build your self-esteem and overcome your challenges so you can, ultimately, enjoy more of the life you want.  

Working with me can help whatever you want to work on.  Whether: 

  • you want better relationships 
  • you'd love to feel happier when you wake up in the morning
  • life has thrown you a curved ball and you're finding it hard to find your footing again
  • you've lost your way and don't know what it is you really want
  • you're aware that something is 'off' or 'missing' even though it all seems ok from the outside
  • you have challenges at work
  • you're tussling with menopause
  • you'd like to parent in a more satisfying way
  • you want more out of life and avoid getting it (which sounds interesting and can happen despite our best intentions).  
  • you're dealing with something else.  

I’m warm and compassionate, and I offer supportive space in which to explore yourself, come to understand what makes you tick and impacts you, and gain skills that will help you live in a way that feels really satisfying.  

My approach is humanistic; I start with the premise that you are the expert on you, that we are equals on a journey and that I am walking alongside to support and perhaps help draw your attention to things you may not yet have considered.  

I believe in the tremendous capacity we have to know ourselves through connection with our intuition, and often use mindfulness and ‘tuning in’ to the physical experience as a way of supporting my clients to connect more fully with themselves.

Further information

Kind words about coaching with me.

Although initially nervous about what coaching would entail and whether it was worth ‘investing in me’, I have come to realise how valuable my time with Sarah has been. 

She has supported me to feel clearer about what I want and how to move forward. Her calm focus and support has enabled me to feel lighter and set the boundaries I need to enhance my life and really be myself.”

"I feel like the circle is closing and I can see myself at the centre whereas before I felt as though everything was a bit disparate and unconnected."

KB, Oxfordshire

‘It’s been a beautiful experience.   There’s an ease creeping into things that I didn’t have before”.

SV, Wallingford

"Sarah has helped me make a real difference to my mindset and how I felt about particular challenges I was facing."

She is a compassionate coach; her therapeutic style and background makes what she offers even more valuable.  I appreciate the energy and dynamism with which she approached each session, and the challenge followed by support provided when I had an opportunity to face something new, and grow. Thank you Sarah!
