Sarah offers one to one or group coaching. Her approach is friendly, fun and creative, drawing on activities and resources that put her clients at ease whilst supporting reflection. 

"I had the best time with Sarah during our 6-months of coaching for my new business. My vision is clear and I felt comfortable getting in touch with Sarah when I had minor wobbles during the day-to-day. She's such a lovely and approachable person.     I looked forward to every session with her."
