CHRONICALLY EMPOWERED

I help you to take control of your chronic illness through virtual coaching
Stop surviving | start thriving

 You have too much power to be a victim to your chronic illness. You’ve mastered survival mode… now it’s time to thrive. 

Take back control of your chronic illness

Empowered

I understand what it is like to feel exhausted, depleted and in pain every day but I also know the freedom that comes from having a good relationship with my health condition.  I now have ways to manage pain and fatigue that don’t just involve just reaching for the medication, or a glass of wine at the end of the day!

I communicate better with everyone around me and no longer place myself below everyone else.  I know that I am worthy of all the amazing things that come my way. 

There were four key things that changed the game for me; acceptance the foundation to living well with a long term health condition, managing my conditions well, finding my purpose again and having effective and amazing relationships with the people around me. But, most of all with myself.   

Underpinning all of this was my mindset… mindset is everything!

I have learnt to thrive with balance (super important), and pushed myself to grow in ways I never realised I could and I choose the way that I live each and every day.

As a positive mindset coach who specialises in helping women to take control of their chronic Illness, it’s my passion and mission to help women all over the world conquer their biggest struggles, master their mindset and become strong and empowered, energised and confident. 

If you’ve had enough of collapsing at the end of the day,  and desperately want to feel in control of your own health and happiness the Chronically Empowered programme is definitely for you!

Meet Sarah

This programme is designed around the support I wish that I had when I was diagnosed with my chronic illness’ and was desperately trying to get me head around what that meant for me, my family and my future.

Looking back I wish I had the help, this help, to process what my diagnosis meant for me and to know how to start living my life (albeit a different one to the one that I had planned out in my head).

I spent years trying to figure it all out for myself, learning to recognise the subtle symptoms so that I could prevent the crashes, to undo the coping mechanisms that I had taught myself to survive and to understand the domino effect health often takes with chronic illness.

It was when I made a choice. To show up for myself, to be accountable, to accept that I only have one life and it is my responsibility to live it the best way that I can… for ME.  Then things began to change. 

But, it was in my training as a coach and Master NLP Practitioner (neuro-linguistic programming) and as a Chrysalis Effect practitioner that I learned the tools and techniques, that I if knew had I had access to earlier, I would not have spent the years muddling along, second guessing my choices and never taking responsibility for my life.  I strongly believe that we shouldn’t have to figure it all out on our own, or accept that ‘this is it’. 

The big change came for me when I learned to accept my chronic illness and disability and to manage and face up to all the thoughts and emotions surrounding it.

 I connected again with the things that brought me happiness and joy and got a handle on the things that I could control and let go of the things that I couldn’t.  So that I felt in charge of my destination again.  

I built stronger relationships with family, friends and medical professionals and most importantly with myself. I began to look at life in a totally different way.  I look back on my younger self with compassion (and a tinge of annoyance) as a wasted so much time trying to work it all out.  

This programme will give you the 1:1 support you on your own journey with chronic illness and disability to rediscover who you are, relearn your strengths and reignite your passion for life.

 I often say now I don’t have any choice whether or not I have Parkinson’s, but surrounding that non-choice is a million other choices that I can make. – Michael J. Fox

One to one coaching

Coaching

I have a limited number of spaces for working one to one with clients, so that I can give you my full attention and energy. Because of this I don’t take on one to one clients without a conversation first.

Coaching is such a great thing and it’s really important that you find the right coach for you in order to get the best from it. And it’s important for me to know that I can help you and that we will work well together.

If you are interested, ready to invest energy, time and finance to the process, then book an intro call (no cost) so we can explore. An intro call is just that, it doesn’t mean you have to sign up to anything but we can discuss what would suit you best.

Four month coaching programme

If you are newly diagnosed with a chronic illness and are getting your head around all the stuff, feel tired and overwhelmed juggling your health condition and life, or want to get clear on how to mange your symptoms, live a great life and improve your mindset then this programme is for you.

We will work together for four months focusing you and your health. With me in your corner, you will take action so living well with a long term health condition becomes your reality. We will think about where you are in your chronic illness journey, the life you want, what is important to you,  and what that will that look like. And then we will figure out how you will get there.

We will work on you, are you ready to shift your relationship with your chronic illness, to take control of your health and happiness and smash some of those limiting beliefs that are holding you back? I will help you do all of those things so that you can start to feel in control of you chronic illness instead of it controlling you.  

This programme is a mix of coaching, nlp and mentoring where I will share strategies that have helped me to go from surviving to thriving with my chronic illness over the last 15 years and have helped others do the same.

    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.

    What is a life coach?

    A life coach helps you establish a plan to move you closer to your goal, helps you track your progress, and hold you accountable to take courageous action.

    Reaching goals doesn’t happen overnight. It takes clear strategy, hard work, and patience. But trying to reach a goal without support can be overwhelming and lonely.  Imagine having the accountability, resources, and a best friend by your side  (that’s me) to help you to reach your most meaningful goals in half the time and effort?

    What is the difference between life coaching and traditional therapies?

    Coaching differs from traditional therapies in that it is not analysis. We may at times use the past as a resource and learning but we are not analysing the past with the outcome of knowing “why” you have your issue today – our focus is on the present and the future and “what” you can do about it and “how” you can change and create your outcome.  There comes a point when reliving the story that got you to where you are today does not serve you in your future.  

    Do I need counselling?

    Maybe, yes!  There is a place for all the therapies depending on where a client is and what they need.  Traditional therapies like counselling or psychotherapy hold a space for you and revisit the past to work out why.  This is an important part of the journey for some clients.  Life coaching can work in conjunction with these types of therapies.

    How will life coaching benefit me?

    People choose to hire life coaches because they want to do more tomorrow than they can do today. They want to improve their output and see more growth, and they want to do those things quickly and to the best of their ability. All kinds of people use life coaches, including actors, business leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs, executives, homemakers, managers, professionals, small business owners and start-up pioneers. These people all identify a gap between where they are and where they want to be, and turn to coaching when they want help reaching their goals. When you ask yourself what is a life coach and why should I work with one, you’re asking yourself why you’d want to unlock an extraordinary life.

    Who do you work with?

    I work with women with long term or chronic illness and help them to take control of their life and their health.

    These women are from all walks of life, homemakers, business leaders, other coaches and students.

    I help them get in control of pain and fatigue, manage their symptoms, re-connect with who they are, regain a sense of balance in their life and be able to maintain it.

    If long term illness is not part of your life and feel we could be a good fit?  Get in touch and we’ll have a chat and see if I can help you.

    What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

    Neuro-Linguistic Programming is used to enhance performance, to help an individual control their emotional state and to stay focussed on what they want from life. It incorporates specific Neuro-Linguistic Programming strategies and techniques designed to produce specific outcomes.

    What is the difference between NLP and Life coaching?

    Life coaching helps coaches to identify the roadblocks that are stopping their clients from achieving their desired outcome. Beyond the recognition of these roadblocks, NLP Coaching allows you to delve deeper and identify the root cause of these roadblocks which when removed, result in a more profound transformation.  Life coaching with NLP work really well together to help clients achieve the results they want quickly.  

    What if I can't make a session?

    Hey, I understand that chronic illness is unpredictable and the journey to wellness is not without its bumps in the road.  I have a 24 hour cancellation policy where you can log in and rebook at a time that suits you better.

    If it’s less that 24 hours this option will not be available but you can give me a call and we can discuss if it is possible to rebook the session. (This is at my discresion).

    How will sessions take place?

    All sessions will take place over zoom.  You will need to download the zoom app prior to your first session and have access to a reliable internet connection. You may also need a pen and paper hand.  Alternatively sessions can take place over the telephone.

    In the future I may look at adding face to face sessions as an option for clients who want that.

    How long will life coaching continue for?

    That depends on where you are in life, where you want to go, and how quickly you want to get there. There’s no right or wrong time frame for life coaching. Some clients achieve their goals in as little as three months; others stay with a coach anywhere from six to eighteen months. After clients realise their first goals, they often identify other areas they want to work on.

    The coaching relationship can continue as long as there is benefit to the client.

    Do I really have time for life coaching?

    Absolutely! Life coaching sessions are conducted on Zoom so they are super convenient to you. Typically I see people for an hour a week, but this is very flexible.

    The real question is do you want to invest in yourself?

    It's expensive. I don't think that I can afford it?

    I get it, you are not buying a new car or booking a holiday where there is instant gratification or something to look forward to.

    This may not feel like that and that is OK. The problem that you want to solve most likely out of your comfort zone, or you would have it figured out by now.
    Coaching, will push you right out of your comfort zone and that may feel uncomfortable but the alternative is staying safely where you are, at least you know what to expect there right? (even if it’s frustrating).
    But I’ll let you into a little secret, no change will happen.
    The person that you will become in a year from now would hire me. Working with me is an investment in your future and to do that you need the courage to step out of your comfort zone and do the work.
    The decision may feel uncomfortable because it requires to be brave and to be bold. That doesn’t always feel good. But the end result does. Like starting a new job or going for an interview, it always feels uncomfortable until you’ve done it.
    The question really is what price would you put on your health and happiness?

    Deciding that you are ready to strive toward your goals and change your life is one hell of a big deal. Lets take a little time to chat, to get to know each other, find out what you are hoping to get out of the coaching experience and make sure that working together feels like a great fit for both of us.

    If you are interested, ready to invest energy, time and finance to the process, then book an intro call (no cost) so we can explore. An intro call is just that, it doesn’t mean you have to sign up to anything but we can discuss what would suit you best.

    Can honestly say that I am so, so grateful for your guidance, help, knowledge and understanding. I really believe I’d have been in the mists of despair if it wasn’t for everything I’ve gained from knowing you. I’ve handed teachers sheets of information written by you, I’ve empowered myself to fight for what my children need, after reading how you have fought the system and fought for your children’s rights. Never underestimate the power of what you have and done and continue to do for others. Xxx

    I have found working with Sarah very helpful to manage pacing. It has impacted my life in so many ways, I now realise that I am as important as everyone else in my life.  This change in mindset has freed me up and given me more time energy for everyone, including myself. The relaxation at the end of our sessions was particularly beneficial as because of my personality type I find it particularly hard to relax, I don’t know what she did, but it worked.
