Curious about what is possible for you?
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.
I felt like my chronic illness had taken away all of my options for my future and I felt stuck, but working with Sarah has helped me figure out what direction I want to go in with my education and career, and what steps I can take to get there while managing my symptoms. My thinking about success was very “all or nothing”, and she helped me change my approach to achieving my goals; rather than struggling to overcome my limitations I try to adapt and work around them.
Sarah has been a warm, friendly, and incredible support to me especially as I returned to work full-time after a long period of illness. She allowed me to see where I needed to take a step back and re-evaluate my goals and values, and breathe when I started feeling overwhelmed. It was perfect timing for this new transition. She really has a multitude of techniques and I totally recommend her insight.
