Imagine a life and career where you’re in control

A life in which you consciously choose a way of being and doing. One where you understand and leverage your strengths to achieve your goals. Purposeful, on target and unique to you.

Hi, I’m Sarah

I’m an executive coach with a passion for
meaningful conversations.

My focus is to develop a trusting relationship and brave thinking space with you that drives a transformative conversation – an exploration that helps you to get to know yourself better.

My goal is to help you think differently, challenge assumptions and boost your confidence to experiment. The result? Clarity and understanding. You gain the ability to draw on your strengths and make change that sticks, to realise your personal intentions and professional ambitions.

Coaching at its best is an insightful
and challenging conversation

Simply put, it’s a series of conversations that
explore these four fundamental steps

Step 1. Awareness

How well do you know yourself? What are your values, motivators, strengths, beliefs, preferences, behavioural tendencies and habits?

Step 2. Clarity

Where are you going? What do you want? How will it be different?

Step 3. Choice

Where are you now and what choices do you want to make? What strengths can you leverage and what barriers to change do you want to overcome?

This is how I work as your coach.
