Sue Sharp | Helping You to Shine Bright - Business, Career and Life Coaching
Hello. I’m Sue, a professional coach, based in Stratford Upon Avon. Whether you're looking for support in your career or business, or for help with personal development areas, I see my role as helping you to shine bright and be your best self, more of the time.
At some point we nearly all experience some unexpected humps and hurdles in life, or we can find ourselves really stuck, playing out the same patterns and getting nowhere fast. These times can often feel frustrating, saddening or overwhelming.
At other times we want to rise to a new challenge and know that we'd benefit from some additional support to ensure our success.
Whatever the situation you find yourself in, it's likely that coaching can help you to gain clarity, so you can either find your way out of the 'mess' or scale up to your next heights of achievement.
Here are some topics that people often come to coaching for:
- Business Coaching
- Personal Development
- Career Coaching
- Leadership or Executive Coaching
- Lacking confidence
- Stress and overwhelm
- Low motivation or energy
- Health challenges
- Feeling stuck
- Relationships (personal or work)
- Staff Coaching or Mentoring others
- Changes in career situation
- Life changes e.g. becoming a parent
- Lifestyle changes e.g. redundancy coaching, relocation, retirement
- Help to create and action plans to achieve your goals
What to expect:
Whatever your reason for looking on this website, when coaching with me you’ll find a compassionate space to discover your own truth. You’ll be asked questions that stretch your thinking, and you’ll find ways to connect to your deepest wisdom.
As your coach I’ll have your back. We'll work together so that you can get clear on what you really want and feel confident to take your next steps.
As well as asking you questions, I may share ideas and concepts that are relevant to your current challenges or aspirations. These will likely help you to make connections that you’re not seeing for yourself and help you to open up to new ways of doing things. You'll also find me sharing some of the things I notice about your thinking, so that you can get to know yourself better.
That’s the beauty of having a coach alongside you. You’ll gain a perspective that’s both objective and fully focused on helping you to get what you want from your life. I’ll be on your team, and yet I’m not playing the same role as a friend, colleague or family member.
Where does coaching take place?
I see clients face to face in Stratford Upon Avon and work with many clients by phone or online. I can also come to your workplace for work-based / executive coaching if this is your preference.
How many sessions will I need?
This will really depend on what you’d like to change or achieve. Some people come for only a few sessions; others continue for many months. However long your journey is, my commitment to you is that I’ll go the distance with you.
I’ll help lift your spirits if things are tough and I’ll be right next to you celebrating when things are going as you’d planned. My role is to help you to always take your next best steps and enjoy yourself on the way!
What to do next:
If you think we could be a good team, why not take your next best step right now and get in touch?
Give me a call or drop me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
If you get my voicemail please do leave a message and I'll call you back just as soon as I can.

What Clients Say - below are some testimonials to give you a sense of your coaching experience.
Business Based Coaching
“Coaching with Sue is like resetting the mind into a different way of thinking. It’s implemented in everything I do in the office. I come up with different ways of doing things than I would have in the past. It’s like a mental refresh. It takes the weight off my shoulders and I come out less stressed: I have a calmer mind-set and a plan in place. Is my time with Sue valuable? 100% yes!” AP
"Sue has a strong understanding of workplace psychology. We now communicate considerably better as individuals and teams, across our business. We have seen notable improvements in employee attitude, drive and organisational skills. The confidence levels of those who were notably insecure have risen considerably. Her work has been invaluable, and I can highly recommend her." RC
Personal Development / Life Coaching
“I now feel more focused and calm about the issues I came to see Sue about. I have more clarity and a definite action plan on how I am going to achieve my goals. I also feel much more positive about my current situation.” JO
"Sue creates a very open and safe atmosphere where I feel confident to talk about and work through things. I recommend anyone to try it out and see for themselves the impact it can have in their personal lives." SS
“I asked Sue for help when my relationship ended. I am reasonably self-aware and had begun to notice a recurring pattern of behaviour on my part. I didn’t want to enter into another relationship without having addressed the behaviour.
She guided me through a series of questions, asking me to notice certain aspects of my behaviour. And then shared with me an observation, which for me was the critical insight. I uncovered a fundamental pattern of behaviour, and in the days that followed, I began to realise the different ways it had affected me throughout my life. It has triggered major positive behavioural changes for me.” MS
“Having a child has made me re-evaluate all my priorities, and having Sue to help me through the crazy, scary and challenging thoughts that fly around my head is proving to be invaluable!” RC
