About me

Executive Coach - Dorset, Hampshire & London

My passion for supporting individuals to be confident and authentic leaders stems from the amazing positive transformation that I have experienced for myself, and have witnessed in my clients, that has occurred as a result of stepping outside of our comfort zone, step into the light and allow ourselves to be seen more clearly by others.

Who I can help:

Professional individuals who are committed to personal growth and change and who want to feel more confident as a leader and want to lead with greater authenticity.

Professional individuals who are currently finding themselves struggling to achieve a critical personal change goal on their leadership development plan and who want coaching support to finally make that change happen.

About me:

I am based in Christchurch, Dorset and have had my own online Executive Coaching practice for 7 years. I entered into coaching after 15 years of working in business as a senior executive in London and in the US.

In 2013 I gave up the corporate world to bring about more balance in my life. With two young boys, the pressures of global travel and a full time job I found myself feeling unhappy and stressed. I decided to leave my job and find a way to pursue my passion for helping others.

In 2014 I completed my Certificate in Coaching qualification at Ashridge Business School to build my specialist skill set, entered into my own personal therapy and started my own coaching practice. In 2018 I completed my Masters in Executive Coaching at Ashridge Business School and also completed the Minds at Work Immunity to Change training in Boston.

It was during this time that I went on my own personal journey in discovering what was holding me back in allowing my authenticity to flourish both within work and in my wider life. It is this personal journey, combined with my professional training and extensive business experience, that allows me to relate and support my clients to bring about change in a way that clients feel understood, supported and held.

My coaching areas:

Confidence and Authenticity:
Here I support clients to gain acceptance and confidence in who they are now and to allow more of themselves to show up both with others and within themselves. Goals have included:
- to understand who I am as a leader and then to live it
- to be confident in managing senior stakeholders
- to successfully manage conflict
- to navigate a critical transition successfully (expert to leader/large promotion/new job)

Critical Personal Change Goal:

Here I support clients to successfully achieve those important, but difficult, personal change goals that they have often been working hard to achieve but never seem to be able to achieve the long term sustainable change required. Examples of goals clients have brought include:
- be an active listener
- be more collaborative with others
- delegate more to the team
- be more strategic and less involved in the detail

Sarah’s depth of knowledge, dedication and professionalism during my coaching sessions was second to none and added real value to both my wellbeing and business. I would highly recommend Sarah. She helped me see and leverage strengths I already had that I underestimated. I was stricken with constant imposter syndrome, she highlighted the uniqueness and value of my capabilities and helped me learn how to lean into it in order to use it more effectively for the benefit of my startup. Sarah was a powerful support system in helping me get clearer about my goals and my capability of delivering against them. Finally, Sarah’s gathered input about how others see me helped to clarify others' perceptions of my key strengths and capabilities. She also focused where I needed to grow, and learn to see myself with "fair witness".

Sarah really helped me working through some key confidence challenges I was having which were leading to quite a lot of negative stress / anxiety in certain situations at work to do with self-doubt. Through the sessions with Sarah, she really helped me explore and define more clearly my core strengths and purpose. Being clearer on my strengths has given me more confidence over the past year subsequently. Being very honest with yourself can be quite tricky when creating a clear and honest purpose - Sarah helped me explore and work through this in a way which always put me at ease, allowed me to go in many explorations of myself whilst also helping to guide me towards clarity. Sarah's background of working in business for many years helped her to be very relatable whilst also having a knowledge & personal coaching approach to coaching to create the right environment to open up. I would recommend Sarah and more broadly coaching to any business leader to support development and confidence in their career. Tom Langley Head of Media Capabilities

5 / 5 ★

I was very fortunate to have a number of sessions with Sarah when I needed time to focus on and address some thorny issues in business and with my personal development. Sarah helped me to work through these issues and reflect on my perceptions which allowed me to rediscover the real me, get my mojo back, and improve my performance at work. I really warmed to Sarah who is very empathic in her style and I really appreciated and benefited from her thoughtful guidance. I would highly recommend Sarah if you are looking for a deeper understanding of your personal and professional life and the support to think and work things through. D. M.
