    With a killer combo of imagination, humour and organisational chutzpah, Sarah helped me to crack open some shut-down thinking I had running, suss the lay of the land, and see the horizon. Bolt cut.

    Running my own business while working two days a week and raising two kids is no small feat and when I started working with Sarah 6 weeks ago I was a shell of a human and ready to crawl under a rock and hide.  

     

    A combination of big picture thinking, values assessment and weekly systems and structures that organise my tasks and thoughts has meant I can actually manage it all. Sarah has pushed and challenged me and I am eternally grateful for these life long skills

    Sarah was an amazing coach for me. She provided a safe space for me to really open up about situations that I had been striving to address and move forward with. It was clear from the beginning that I was in a non-judgemental space and her life experience gave me great confidence. Her sessions provided great reflection and I left with a clear focus on how to progress. We had many laughs too!

    MICHAEL, MULTI-MEDIA ARTIST & AWARD WINNING ILLUSTRATOR 

    I'm an artist working in a number of fields from publishing to animation and museum

    exhibition design. I'm excited by outside-of-the-box ideas and technical challenges.

    I pursue excellence in my own work and can be very critical. I can also be my

    own worst enemy, especially when it comes to pragmatic stuff.

     

    I sat down with Sarah and we went through a process of working out what I really

    cared about. It was a great relief to work with someone who could help me stop

    thinking in circles and self-sabotaging and call me on bullshit when she saw it. It was clarifying.  

    Sarah helped me determine what I really wanted out of life. And then, most importantly, we made a path past all the stupid distractions and started working out real, practical ways to get there. One of the most useful things I've ever done.

    So I quit my day job to be a full time writer and then my son got sick and life turned upside down. My priorities changed and so did my available time. When life got this confusing I wanted someone to help me make decisions and find direction. Sarah was understanding, tough, and became a great co-pilot at a time I really needed.

    Dreams and ambitions are all very well, but actually getting to them is a different story!   As someone who has a new hare brained scheme everyday, I needed help with following through with ideas. 

     

    Sarah asked me questions I have never been asked before, about the reality of achieving my ambitions whilst  navigating the real life, not-so-romantic stuff like feeding the family and keeping a roof over our heads . She helped me gain clarity, become unstuck and take the right steps forward.  I feel so great about my future, and am changing the habits of a lifetime to make it happen.  Scary stuff, and exhilarating too!

    In just over an hour with Sarah, I feel like I can see a the first glimpses of a pathway forward, my pathway. Sarah’s coaching is focussed, pragmatic and insightful. Drilling down to what’s important, helping to untangle a jumble of thoughts and gently encouraging the barriers to be defined and to look beyond the hurdles, Sarah is a strategic enabler. I walked away feeling self-inspired and hopeful; I’ll be back.
