About me

Leadership Coach - Manchester, Nottingham, London

I’m an Executive Coach and accredited Business Psychologist with over a decade of working with organisations to bring out the best of their leaders and employees at work.

I have particular interest and experience in helping individuals to find their authentic style at work, connect with their inner confidence, explore ways to stay balanced and resilient and to show up as their best selves in the workplace. These areas are all inter-linked and often when we work on one of these areas, we can see improvements in other aspects of our work including relationships at work, output and performance.

My biggest priority as a coach is to create a non-judgemental and psychologically safe space where current reality can be explored. As a Psychologist, I bring my knowledge of a wide range of evidence-based research including the neuroscience of motivation, well-being and burn-out, imposter syndrome, emotional intelligence, habits and belief systems. I have been described as insightful, philosophical, warm, challenging and an excellent listener.

I have worked particularly in the following areas:
- Building resilience
- Adapting to a new role at work
- Becoming an authentic leader
- Overcoming blockers to feeling confident at work
- Overcoming blockers to performance
- Building emotional intelligence and ability to flex to different situations
- Managing difficult conversations around performance, feedback and conflict
- Emerging and first-time leadership

I have coached internationally and at all organisational levels from early careers up to c-suite executives with experience across a wide variety of business contexts including retail, engineering, branding and design, food and manufacturing, housing, charity sector, start-ups, small to medium sized businesses and international companies.

I am able to provide coaching over Zoom or in person and am available for a free 30-minute exploratory call. Please do get in touch if you would like to meet on 07901 357 299 or at

I came to Sarah Naidoo-Banks, in 2021, after searching for a business psychologist. At the time I was looking for someone who had a blend of warmth and professionalism with direct experience within the business world and specifically working with people at c-suite level, leadership teams and professionals. I found all of this and more with Sarah. My personal financial investment in this work has been extremely rewarding, reflected not only in my interpersonal relationships, at work and at home, but also in terms of the economic growth of my new venture. Sarah and her approach comes with my highest recommendation. She is calm, warm, thoughtful, friendly, curious, clear, intentional, insightful, full of integrity, professional, will offer things to consider and ways to receive information from the internal (self) and the external (other) and explore a way to experience words, feelings, feedback, personalities and alternative ways of being and thinking that I found immensely helpful, empowering and through provoking. Sarah is masterful at creating a comfortable space that feels paced, safe and secure. I feel extremely lucky to have found someone I can work with, who has helped elevate my work and therefore my life.
