My coaching sessions with Sarah have left me feeling refreshed and full of positive energy. 

I’ve gained lots of insights and ideas and have taken some useful practical steps.  Swapping the daily abstract panic and stress I felt about my need to return to work for a well-formed outcome focused on what I want to achieve for myself and my family feels really liberating and has opened up lots of possibilities in my mind. The practice of identifying and reflecting on what I want, and when I want it, has helped massively – paying attention to this as I go about my day to day is helping me to manage distractions and make decisions about how to use my time. “

You can live a happy healthy life despite the challenges you face with your health.  

Guess what it all starts with your mindset and this 7 day FREE e-course will help you do just that!


When I first came to Sarah, I thought I had a hold of my mental and physical well-being, however she introduced me to new concepts to keep my me in check…

Pacing, maintaining my window of tolerance, understanding hypoarousal, and giving my inner child forgiveness are just a few of the concepts that gave me more insight, purpose and control in my chronic illness life. It didn’t matter what we talked about in our sessions, Sarah had the practices to apply and she gave me the encouragement to succeed. Talking with Sarah is like catching up with an old friend, and she is the best cheerleader cheering you on to a better place. I highly recommend Sarah as a life coach and advocate in your healthcare team.”
