"Sara’s coaching has reversed my negative thinking into something far more positive. Helped me to recognise opportunities. Made me feel like I am in a position of power. Shifted my focus to doing rather than just thinking – and when I do think, I think differently. Encouraged me to try new things. Taught me to appreciate what I have and how to make the most of it.
I now feel like I am taking responsibility for my future and not just passively waiting for something to happen."
Andrew Falconer, Managing Editor, ELLE Magazine
"When I was made redundant, Sara gave me a space to think through my options and prioritise what mattered to me. Then, when the combined demands of my current job, freelance work and job search threatened to overwhelm me, she gave me techniques to help manage my time and workload. She also challenged my negative thoughts and preconceptions, so that I felt more confident and comfortable in difficult situations, including job interviews and related negotiations."
Communications Manager, Oxfam, Head Office.
“I have found Sara’s coaching style both engaging and challenging – she is very adept at creating time and space to think issues through. A great strength of Sara’s is the ability to ask the right thought provoking question at the right time to help me develop actions that make a difference.”
Director of Talent, London Borough Council.
"Thank you for your very supportive sessions, it has been really helpful and I feel calm and all the stress and tension gone. You have helped me through this very difficult time. I would recommend you to anyone, you are very compassionate."
Client, Oxfam in Gaza, Palestine.
"I was going through a divorce and trying to find ways to regain my confidence. Sara encouraged me to form a structure to what I was doing, analyse and then adapt to suit what I felt I needed. Being guided to set realistic targets was particularly helpful as it stopped me from making excuses as to why I had not done anything. Sara also encouraged me to reflect and learn from what I had been doing and using this knowledge has allowed me to make good considered choices which have had a positive effect on my life. I have gained a huge amount of confidence during the coaching process and enter into the next phase of my life with great enthusiasm and self belief."
"I was facing redundancy and had some ideas, but needed someone to help me turn them into realistic plans. I needed to sharpen them up. My experience of coaching with Sara helped me to do exactly that. It was thought provoking, inspiring and productive. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to come to conclusions that were spot on."

“Wow, what breakthroughs I’ve had! The way I am now approaching every aspect of my life, my focus with my wife and family, my career and other responsibilities, including those to myself is so much better. Thank you for a fascinating journey. I recommend Sara if you want to make lasting changes in your life and have fun while doing it.”
Client, New York.
"I stopped work to have my children, and then faced that most daunting of prospects – going back after maternity. Confidence was at a low ebb. I can’t tell you how different I feel now having worked with Sara. I was able to return to my career with a renewed confidence. Thank you for helping believe in myself again."
"Reflecting back over the last six months of coaching, it has been a rare and extraordinary treat to have been able to devote these hourly slots to ‘me time.’ A luxury even. I have benefited by the insightful and on occasion, extraordinary observations by my coach Sara. Time has been invested in my future, action points made and research undertaken. I feel I am in a better place and moving inexorably forward. My overall opinion? Smokin'! She met every expectation and more."
Joanna Railton Edwards, Ghost Writer/ Freelance Administrator.
"I was sceptical about coaching to start with, thinking that I was able to sort my own life out, but having the support from Sara helped me greatly, not only to maintain momentum but also to understand what I was trying to achieve."
"Sara helped me break through some blocks I was struggling with and identify what was most important to me and how to prioritise those things.
Massively helpful during a complicated time for me."
“I would certainly recommend Sara to anyone. I am extremely grateful to her. I have found it very valuable to have her insight and to learn new structures. We got through a lot of content! She has helped me to negotiate, re-frame, and face the changes and challenges that had felt so huge before."
