About me

Offices in Hitchin and Redbourn & Southdown.

Transformational programmes for those who want to experience development and growth in themselves/and or their career. All programmes are bespoke and designed to meet your individual set of needs. Connect to your deepest desires so that you can start to live the life that you'd be happiest living now. Programmes available for all ages and backgrounds in Hitchin, Redbourn and Harpenden. Zoom sessions available also. Free, no obligation initial consultation.

Would you would you love to feel more confident, motivated or inspired? Maybe you're satisfied with life but want to explore the other options available to you. Sometimes we know the thing that we want to do but don't know how to go about doing it. I work closely with individuals to help them unlock their true potential. We all have everything that we need to live truly inspiring lives - but most of us need guidance, support, mentors and coaching to guide us along the way.

Let me help you rediscover your purpose and vision for life! Ground yourself in an understanding of life which can unburden and free you up to make steps towards living your dream life.

I use the initial free consultation as an opportunity to make sure that we are the right match for each other. This means that we can get straight down to business and make sure the time that we work together can be deeply transformative. You can expect to experience an increase in clarity, resourcefulness, creativeness, wellbeing, resilience and success. This shift can help you to work through any issues that they are facing and take steps towards creating the life that they would be happiest living.

Having a coach in your life is powerful. It offers support and possibility which is outside of the standard models available. Whether you are struggling at work, have a major life decision to reach, are unhappy in a relationship, negotiating work/life/family balance - coaching can provide the extra support you need to get back on track and feel in control again. You can get in touch with your natural born leadership, uncover your innate ability to thrive and rediscover your confidence and true potential.

I have worked in Coaching and Therapy for over 18 years and run a successful business in Hertfordshire. My experience and training allow me to work with a wide range of people , of different ages and backgrounds.

My approach combines an evolution of my academic background in Psychology and further study in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT, EMI and a powerful paradigmatic understanding about the mind and our innate capacity to thrive. I work closely with individuals and teams to develop a bespoke package which will support you in the way that you need. I only work with a small number of clients at any one time so I can focus on you and provide a safe and supportive environment for you to thrive.

Relationship Coach

Have you and/or your partner been working on your relationship hoping to build a better connection? Are you looking to get back the love that you once had? Rekindle love and nurture communication? Do you know that you love each other but that your relationship has become lost in the living of day to day life?

I work closely with couples or individuals to help them work through, untangle and see the various elements which are causing their relationship to feel strain.

Although each and every relationship is different they all come across similar challenges, the details are always different but the route causes are often the same. If you're looking for a new and progressive way of looking at your relationship, a way which isn't interested in shaming or blaming. A perspective which is refreshing and looking to understand, learn and evolve as a couple rather than as separate entities within the relationship. My work is heavily influenced by Alison Armstrong, David Deida, John Wineland and Stan Tatkin - if these people resonate with you please get in touch for a more personal conversation.

"In hindsight, when I started seeing Sarah, I think I was having an emotional breakdown.  On paper, my life was great, but it was a struggle for me, both emotionally and physically just getting through most days.......She helped me to think more clearly and to understand why I felt so anxious. She taught me practical thinking mechanisms, so now I look at problems and challenges in a different way; a more positive and effective way; I would not have got through the last year without her support, and what she taught me has enabled me now to move on and face the world as the happy person I always used to me.  Sarah was a ray of sunshine in my life when I needed it most; I cannot recommend her highly enough." Karen

When I first met Sarah I was in a very low dark place, I had tried the ‘conventional’ counselling/therapy route and didn’t feel that was the answer. I was very distressed and depressed when I first met Sarah yet after I came away from our first session I had this relaxed feeling. For the first time in my life I am not needing to run away from my feelings." Michael

"Sarah is calm, friendly and very approachable a great listener with a lovely manner. She is non judgemental and completely professional.Her sessions are engaging and exceeded my expectations. Sarah has helped me see things from a fresh perspective.  I was very lucky to choose Sarah as my coach as I always feel in tune with her during the sessions. “ Alison!

For as long as I can remember I've enjoyed studying the human mind. Its a life long journey that continues to change as new developments are found, developments which often back up and point to ancient traditions and philosophers. I believe that we are all on a journey of becoming and we all need different things at different stages. Generally something taps us on the shoulder and comes to our attention long before we need it and when we are ready its shouting at us so that we can't ignore it any longer!

I truly love exploring the true nature of ourselves and seeing individuals bloom and feel unburdened by life as they have realisations of their own. A coaching relationship is a therapeutic one and a whole hearted one.
