Hello, I'm Sarah,
a Life & Career Coach.
My mission is to help ambitious women who are unfulfilled in their career, to break free from the 9-5 hamster wheel so they can create a dream life & career on their own terms.
Turning 30 is a pivotal time for women. It's a time when we want to feel like we have all our ducks in a row. Whether that be career, relationships, finances, starting a family, buying a house etc. There are a lot of societal pressures put on women at this age and it can feel really overwhelming if you have not figured everything out yet.
Of course, it goes without saying that none of these expectations need to be met and we are all on our own path at our own pace. However, I know exactly how it feels as I experienced this, alongside many of my friends.
I felt an immense pressure to have my career all figured out and be climbing that corporate ladder and earning the big bucks. This led me down a path that I really didn't want to be on, and struggled to get off for many years.
Does this sound familiar?
Prior to becoming a Coach, I spent a decade working as a Business Analyst in the City. I worked on large-scale change and transformation projects for a range of corporates and charities. I worked hard, ticked boxes, but really wasn't happy.
My job was fast-paced and stressful, and I pushed myself to burnout several times. I was living for the weekend and spending beyond my means just to give myself something to look forward to outside of the 9-5, or more like 8-7 - let's be honest! I would cram myself onto the Central Line squished under someone's armpit listening to podcasts of entrepreneurs who had left the City to set up purpose-led businesses and I longed to follow them!
When you're on that hamster wheel, it can feel impossible to get off.
Do you know how that feels too?
"I understand now that no one else in the world knows what I should do. The experts don't know, the ministers, the therapists, the magazines, the authors, my parents, my friends, they don't know. Not even the folks who love me the most. Because no one has ever lived or will ever live this life I am attempting to live, with my gifts and challenges and past and people. Every life is an unprecedented experiment. This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking people for directions to places they've never been. There is no map. We are all pioneers. "

Sarah is an accredited Life Coach and holds an Advanced Certificate in Coaching Practice (ACCP) from Mindful Talent.
She is a qualified Reiki teacher and is doing her training in Transformational Breathwork.
Outside of work I worked on so many side hustle ideas and went to every entrepreneurial panel talk and networking event I could find, to try and figure out what the hell I wanted to do with my life. If you live in London, I've no doubt bumped into you at one!
I spent many years in this cycle, feeling like I was sleepwalking through life, until I finally reached out for help. I discovered coaching and surrounded myself with the right people and the right tools to finally get myself unstuck and conquer my limiting beliefs.
I built myself a successful portfolio career that gave me balance and purpose and worked for me.
Have you ever felt like you'll never be happy in your career?
That you're just meant to suck it up and get on with life?
Well trust me, you can be happy. In fact you can love waking up on a Monday morning! Didn't think I'd ever say that!!
All you need are the right tools, the right mindset and the right support to get you there.
And that's how I can help you.
