“Sarah, I don’t know how to express in words how grateful I am to you for taking me through your visualisation process. Firstly you empowered me to find my own solution to a blockage that I was experiencing in a project that I’m working on. I hadn’t been able to put into words what was going on, I couldn’t even figure out why I was blocked and yet through you taking me through the visualisation I was suddenly crystal clear about why and more importantly how I could break through it, I literally cried tears of joy when I realised that you had connected me with my solution. Secondly I am someone who finds it difficult to open up about personal matters, using visualisation you connected me to something so deeply personal that is on my mind, you encouraged me to create a beautiful space where I could find peace and reassurance, cue second round of tears, tears of release and love. As someone who often holds back their emotions I was surprised at how naturally they were able to connect with and make me feel whole. Thank you.”
Natasha McCreesh, Yorkshire, England
“I was at a crossroads in my life after the end of a long term relationship and living away from home. I decided it was time to make some changes but did not know where to start. I choose life coaching and found it to be exceptionally practical, open and informative. For the first time ever, I was putting “me” under the spotlight which was a very enlightening and enjoyable experience.
Sarah assisted me in delving deep to determine what exactly I wanted for my life and what make me happier in the short and long term. All the sessions were tailored around what I wanted to achieve. Almost immediately I noticed a tremendous difference, a new perspective that although very obvious had never occurred to me in the past. I discovered that I found great joy in trying to help improve the lives of others. I also figured out what would bring me fulfillment in career terms in the long term.
I gained major benefit from the visualization exercises. They provided a mechanism to deal with certain situations such as difficult relationships and challenging work situations going forward.
Sarah not only made me evaluate my beliefs and values but provided me with a platform to face the future with new found confidence and courage to take life changing decisions. I am deeply thankful to her and would strongly recommend Sarah.”
Credit analyst within corporate banking in a major European banking institution
“After working for 15 years in banking and reaching my forties I had become unhappy with my professional career, affecting gradually my well-being and happiness in general. So I decided to take a sabbatical and started a formation as a professional pastry chef, a childhood aspiration! As the end of my sabbatical approached, a decision on my career-switch became eminent. What to do?
I enrolled in Sarah’s coaching sessions to help me with this decision. Not taking it for me or influencing the outcome, instead she guided me in discovering, through visualizing, what I really wanted.
Once my decision was clear in my head, she coached me through the initial steps of my next adventure in my career, working on self-confidence and persistence”
Business Consultant – Investment Banking, with a sweet-tooth
“I had three coaching sessions with Sarah in total, covering both professional matters and a personal area of my life. Professionally, I felt that my career was rather ‘in limbo’ because my employer had just been taken over by a much larger international corporation, my job role had somehow drifted into far too much administration and not enough law and I had been debating for some time whether to leave London and move to the north of England. Sarah was excellent at listening to my issues and she helped me analyse things in a logical manner and to set an action plan and targets for making decisions and achieving my goals. As a result, I’ve decided to stay in London at least for the foreseeable future, I now have a new PA working for me on a part-time basis to help me with the admin work and I’m emotionally and physically ready to deal with the forthcoming business re-organisation as a result of the takeover. Sarah also helped me look at a personal issue – one to which I know there are no immediate solutions but which I now feel more optimistic and less demoralised about. Thank you Sarah for your valuable assistance.”

“My time with Sarah has been extremely valuable and I’d wholeheartedly recommend her as a career and life coach. Her own experience in the corporate world reassured me that she truly understood the struggle and angst I was facing. After several years of feeling ‘stuck’ on the corporate conveyor with every door I turned to feeling firmly shut, Sarah listened to all my concerns, helped to identify my true core values and offered alternative approaches that I hadn’t yet considered. She has launched me on a course towards a truly fulfilling career…”

“I’ve had the opportunity to have coaching sessions with Sarah over a few months now, which have helped me develop significantly in several personal and professional areas, such as money spending, time management, dealing with others’ expectations or stress at work. Using open questions, association of ideas and an empathetic, subtle direction, she has helped me find a way to look at issues from a totally different perspective whenever I felt stuck at some point, and identify by myself a solution, which was much more comforting than if I had just been told about it. Sometimes the most obvious doors are just open in front of us but for some reason we just don’t want to look or see. Sarah knows how to tune you into the right mood and change your perspective so you can look at the right direction and finally find a way out by yourself. I highly recommend Sarah as a coach to develop both in personal and professional areas.”

“My objective for the coaching session with Sarah was to address a conflict I had with my boss. Through the techniques and questions that Sarah skilfully proposed, I realised that actually the real issue wasn’t the relationship with my boss, but the fact that I lost the passion for my current profession. This realisation also explained other situations and feelings that I am experiencing towards my job and colleagues. This feeling was sort of in the back of my mind, but I have never seen it so clearly. This leaves me with a lot of work to do in terms of career change, but gives me so much clarity and I feel I lifted a weight that I was unconsciously carrying.”
Senior Account Director, Advertising industry
“Hi Sarah, thank you for an amazing session! ! I feel like I got clarity on what I wanted but also much more. I feel like I may have cracked my life mission and also come to a much better understanding of why I like hanging out with certain people more than others – and that I need to make much more time for those on a similar mission. A truly great session – thank you so much!!”
“I gained a great deal from speaking to Sarah. Sarah was an excellent sounding board who played everything back with astonishing accuracy and it was so good to feel I had an objective viewpoint coming back to me from someone who was not making any judgement and did not have preconceived ideas on the “right” or “wrong” thing for me to do. Agreeing on actions is also an excellent exercise which I can’t recommend enough, especially to those who may be feeling rather stuck in a rut. I’d highly recommend you spend some time with Sarah. It’s a wonderful investment.”
Project Manager, formerly Energy industry, now in transition to working in Social Enterprise
“I didn’t really know what to expect from my first coaching session but wow – I experienced a minor but profound shift in my thinking which Sarah helped me to obtain. By asking simple questions she was able to explore issues I wanted to discuss and helped me to practically see how I could start to implement small changes in my life to get me to my ideal dream life which is to be a full time writer. Sarah actively listened to me whilst I rambled on, often in an incoherent and messy way, but she was able to take out key nuggets of information and glean them in such a way that i found more focus and clarity. I was pleasantly surprised by what a difference an hour achieved coaching with Sarah and would highly recommend her as a good coach. She was calming to talk to and I felt comfortable to open up and be vulnerable. Thank you Sarah!”
