Coaching

Feel like you're surviving? Let's get you thriving.

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

 

You have a job with a title that impresses and which lets you live comfortably. Friends and colleagues often seek your advice. You want to make something of your life and make a difference to others. On the outside, you look like you have life sorted.

But, inside, it’s a different story. Self-doubt is gnawing at you. You lack the confidence to manage the increasing responsibility your job requires, leaving you feeling overwhelmed. While you enjoy the trappings your salary can afford you, it isn’t enough to make up for the feeling of unfulfillment. You worry that “any minute now” the world will find out that you really have no idea what you’re doing. You feel tired, stuck and anything but “sorted”. 

Welcome! You’re in the right place. All the changes you want are within reach and absolutely possible. Working together, we’ll explore and challenge what’s influencing you to think and act the way you are, empowering you to:

 

  • Defy your inner critic to do what you never thought possible 

  • Reconnect with your sense of self and purpose 

  • Make the difference to others that’s important to you

  • Enjoy your life!

 

We'll have some laughs along the way, too.

Sound good? 

 

About Me

A Londoner born and bred, I started my career in IT and while I was a great problem-solver, I knew it wasn't my "thing". I travelled and explored career options, working in different sectors. While there wasn't one particular role that grabbed me, the one thing that was common to all of them was helping people to overcome problems so they could succeed. I finally moved into a role in Special Educational Needs support and went back to university to study Psychology, with the plan of becoming an Educational Psychologist.

Sarah Walsh Profile

I decided, instead, to train as a coach after having coaching myself. In 2012, after months of unexplained and debilitating fatigue, I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Hypermobility Syndrome, a hereditary connective tissue disorder. Given that connective tissue is needed throughout your entire body, this can affect pretty much every system; muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular, digestive – you name it. Four years later, after completing my Master's in Psychology, I was referred to the Changing Outlook on Pain Experiences (COPE) programme at University College Hospital in London, as pain, fatigue and anxiety had significantly restricted my activity, impacting on my life experience and mood. The course was run by psychologists, specialist pain nurses and physiotherapists, and coaching was a core component. 

 

During the course, the specialist support helped me to achieve things that I'd considered downright impossible, with the most amazing feeling. I felt free, with a sense that I'd come back to myself. I knew that I wanted to put my psychology background to use helping others to achieve that same feeling, and so trained as a coach. My experience of achieving goals in spite of self-doubt, drew me to specialise in coaching in this area.

 

I work primarily over Skype, and can work with clients anywhere in the World. I do also offer a limited amount of face-to-face sessions at Light Centre Monument, and can meet clients at their workplace, depending on location and availability.

Sally, London

I came to Sarah with a heavy heart and a cloudy head. I expected a complex analysis of why I felt the way I did. Instead, Sarah drilled straight to the point. She gave me clear, simple and practical advice on how to change my life perspective. I had faith in the process and applied her guidance, every week. Do the same and you will notice a marked difference in your life.

I learned to open up and connect to others, and that has opened doors

Catriona, London

I would recommend Sarah to anyone that's looking for a coach. She is very understanding, calm and warm.

 

I had just started my new job when we started our coaching sessions and meeting with Sarah helped me build my confidence and find ways of making my transition smooth.

Nana, London

I was feeling really unsure of how to talk about my skills and work out how these transfer into me starting a coaching business and what I uniquely offer clients. Sarah is friendly and straight to the point. She listens and engages well and her questioning got me closer to the essence of what was going on. In the space of only a few sessions I felt myself moving forward in my thinking and shifting my mindset from a narrow focus to one of greater expanse. I've made the decision to finally leave my job this summer to start my business. This feels very energising and exciting. I've stopped looking specifically for my skill sets and started looking holistically of what my total life experience can bring to others.

 
Coaching Services

Free Consultation

 This session will let us explore your main challenges, how they're stopping you from having the future you want, and how we can address them so you can have that future and make that difference. The consultation will also give us the chance to make sure we're a good fit to work together. If it's a big YES! from both of us, I'll go through the practical aspects such as packages and pricing.

Coaching for Individuals

My standard coaching package is over 4 months. We'll have sessions twice a month, either via Skype or Zoom, or Face-to-Face at a mutually convenient location. I'll provide email support to keep you on track with your objectives and challenges between sessions. Our in-session breakthroughs will just be the beginning – sustained change will come from the work you put in day-to-day

Coaching for Business

I also offer bespoke coaching packages for businesses wishing to support their women employees to develop their confidence so that they can progress. Coaching is also key for supporting employees who are transitioning into a new role, returning to work after an absence  or going through any adjustment where they could benefit from extra support

"Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we're scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don't have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own 'to do' list."
