What makes you you?


The process starts by increasing your self-awareness and discovering more about what makes you, YOU. With a better understanding of what motivates you, what you value, how you behave and your strengths and weaknesses, we can build a solid foundation for GROWTH, set stretching but achievable goals and make change happen for the long term.

Where are you going?


This is about articulating the nature of the change you want to make, getting CLARITY and setting a direction. This is an opportunity to forget about the here and now, to push your boundaries, to go beyond your version of “normal”, to articulate your dreams, to imagine for a moment that anything is possible, to explore a passion or an idea. What would success look like for you and how will you know when you have it?

“I had a terrific coaching experience with Sarah. I spent a little time preparing an initial questionnaire to help us both be ready for the session and from then it was a really thoughtful and in-depth two-way talk about my goals and expectations. Sarah has definitely got a great approach and her insight into how people think is first class.”

Andrew, Project Director

Where are you now?


This is all about getting real! We will explore the realities of your personal and professional life, what’s good, what’s not so good, what’s missing, what you want more of, what you want less of, what’s holding you back. We uncover your self-limiting beliefs, start dealing with your inner critic and other barriers to change.

“Thank you so much for all your coaching wisdom.  You really have made such a big difference in how I see things (including myself!). I feel very well equipped with a whole bundle of new tools to help me with whatever is thrown my way”

Kate, Author

How will you get there?


This is the exciting bit where all your learning gets put into action, and you start to put the necessary steps in place to make the change required and achieve your goals, knowing far more about yourself and what you want to achieve, than you did when you started. This is about making conscious CHOICE and taking ACTION, empowering you to make a sustainable change.

Q&A Section

This is how we'll get started

Initially we arrange a free 45min consultation over the phone, so you can experience coaching for yourself. It’s a chance for you to ask any questions and find out more about how I work, a chance for me to learn more about your situation and to see if we’d be a good fit for each other. Establishing a good rapport is crucial and so the ability to build a trusting relationship where great coaching can happen. If this goes well, we will agree a programme of work and get started!

How long does the process take?

This depends on the client and you are all different, which is why I design flexible packages to meet your needs. Most clients tend to start off with a package covering 3 months (approx. 6 sessions). You should start seeing some change happen at this point, depending on your coaching goals and the amount of effort you put in between sessions. Many clients decide to continue with another programme of sessions or less frequent “keeping up momentum” sessions to ensure change that sticks.

How often do we meet?

We tend to meet once every two weeks in the short term, to gain some momentum and focus on your coaching goals. At some point during our partnership we may choose to change the frequency, or have less frequent “keeping up momentum” sessions. It is important you allow yourself enough time between sessions to process our work and complete any actions.

Does coaching take place in person or over the phone?

Coaching takes place in person (depending on location), over the phone or on skype.

Is there homework?

Yes! Like with most things in life, the more you put in the more you get out! We will agree a set of actions at the end of each session which you are committed to delivering.

What tools and techniques do you use?

There are lots of tools and techniques applied during the coaching process tailored to your needs, taken from my training as a Co-Active Coach but also my experience as a Business Change manager and other coaching methodologies. However the most powerful coaching I have ever witnessed or experienced has happened as a result of the power of listening (I mean really listening) and the strength of the rapport between coach and client. That is why I always offer a free introductory session to make sure we’re the right fit for each other.

Is the process applicable in an organisational setting?

Absolutely! The same 4 simple steps are just as relevant in an organisational setting or when working with groups. It is important to note, however, that as a Co-Active coach I focus on the whole person rather than just the coaching topic to ensure balance, momentum and sustainable change.

How much does it cost?

I work with you to put together a coaching programme to suit your individual needs, therefore packages & prices vary. My basic package for 121 coaching starts at £200 per month.

Keeping up momentum sessions are typically longer in duration but held less frequently, starting at £150 per session.

Workshops tend to start at £150 for approx. 1/2 day.

Corporate packages are priced individually according to the scope of works agreed.

Please contact me for more information and to discuss your particular needs. Thank you.
