Sarah Leach ~ Professional Coach and Consultant
Hi, I’m Sarah, a professional coach and the founder of Stride Coaching & Consulting.
I love to work with professional men and women who want to invest in their personal and professional growth, are looking for clarity of purpose, to uncover what's possible, make conscious choices and take the action required to make a change that will stick.
As an Executive Career & Life Coach, you’ll enjoy my calm approach, my ability to create order out of chaos, my natural style as an empathetic listener and compassionate collaborator, my balance of constructive challenge and supportive encouragement, delivered with a warm and friendly smile.
My coaching approach combines my business change expertise gained from a decade working in the corporate sector, natural coaching style and ability to understand others in a powerful way. I believe in the power of being heard, having the time and space to talk about your life in a completely non-judgemental setting.
I am a wife and mother of two, and find many of my clients are working parents too, trying to find a balance in life that works for them. I also enjoy working with teams who are looking for ways to build on their strengths to become high performing teams confident of delivering their goals.
STRIDE is fundamentally about people not business. I believe businesses and individual lives start to flourish when people are energised and able to operate at their best. I aspire to help people become the best they can be, to feel happy, confident and alive at work and home in the long term. We can draw on your strengths together, as well as your skills and experiences, to achieve your goals. I help individuals to stride forwards in their lives with confidence, courage and conviction.
If you'd like to find out more, why not get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Photos & videos
I tend to see clients once a fortnight at the beginning & then less frequently (typically monthly) as the coaching progresses. Please email me if you'd like to find out more or to book a convenient time to talk on the phone.
We can arrange a time for a free chemistry session where I can walk you through the coaching process and give you an idea of what to expect. We can discuss what's currently on your mind and what you'd like to get out of coaching, and most importantly decide whether or not we're a good fit for each other! Having good rapport with your coach is so important and I want you to feel completely comfortable with everything before we begin.
If you're happy to continue we'll then set a time for your first coaching session, agree logistics and frequency of the first few sessions, establish some coaching goals and get started! The coaching relationship lasts for as long as it needs to. For some it's a couple of sessions, for others its many more. Some take a pause for a few months to embed their learning and then come back for more. It's entirely up to you! On average you can expect a coaching programme to last for about 6 sessions (1 session = 1hr).
I provide a number of different packages tailored to individual needs based on a basic package of £200 for up to 2 hours of coaching a month, please get in touch for further information.
I also run workshops and events, if you'd like to find out more about these please visit my website! I’d love you to join us at one of our Life Coaching & Yoga day retreats, talk to you about our corporate wellness packages and professional development workshops or design a bespoke offering for your individual business needs.
