Hi, I’m Sarah…
Growing up, I never felt very ambitious. I struggled with anxiety and depression, and wasn’t sure how my life would play out. I didn’t set myself goals, or believe I could achieve anything I would ever feel proud of. To top things off, in my teens, I contracted a serious illness that has left me with chronic pain for the last ten years. Feeling like a 17 year old in a 70 year old’s body, I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to succeed in life. I bravely decided to go to University and study musical theatre as I love to sing, but struggled with my confidence and limitations. By taking each day as it came, and focusing as much as I could on the small victories, I graduated, but had no idea what my next step would be. I knew I wanted to help people, so I began an internship in student support; working with those who struggled at University, as I had.
It was here I found coaching. It was a light bulb moment for me, and I knew I had found what I wanted to do. Suddenly, with a newfound determination, I was able to take back control of my life. Over the past years, coaching has helped me completely turn my life around, and I have accomplished more than I ever dreamed. Coaching has given me the confidence to let go of beliefs that were holding me back, and has helped me increase my self awareness. I am now more comfortable with my pain. By re-evaluating what’s really important to me, coaching leads me on a journey of constant self-improvement and healing. Of course I still experience anxiety and poor health, but now I am equipped with tools and strategies to help me through any challenge that comes my way.
I want you to reconnect with what you really want and feel empowered to get it. I’m excited to hear you say “oh my god, I did it!” and see the smile on your face when you achieve what you felt was out of reach.
I know how it feels wanting to push past your limitations but not knowing where to start. When you feel like you’re scraping the barrel for that last drop of energy, time, money, or confidence, and your resilience is low, don’t worry, I’ve been there too.
If you are overwhelmed by pain, lack confidence, or just feel like you’ve lost your mojo, I will help you bring focus back onto your life and be there to celebrate the positives with you. As your coach, I will support and encourage you, and provide a judgement-free safe space for you to achieve your goals.
