Change how you operate in your world, and your world will change around you

I help people to close the gap between where they are and where they want to be. I create bespoke personal and professional development training and coaching programmes.

I work with clients at all career stages in a variety of areas related to research: from doctoral researchers to professors; professional services to ‘escaped' academics. I help clients determine their development needs, and to choose the path and implement methods that best serve them whilst discovering their personal strengths. 
 I am a Chartered Psychologist, Member of the International Society for Coaching Psychology, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

This means I do the research into learning so you don’t have to, and I can show you how to learn (and teach) better yourself.

What clients say

Sarah is an inspirational facilitator. She creates an environment of positive thinking where self-awareness and personal insight can flourish and researchers can identify their future potential.

Jennie Cripps Research Manager, Oxford Brookes University

Sarah assisted me in developing and fine-tuning aspects of my own action plan. I don't think I would have such clarity on my situation had I been dependent on my own resource.

Coaching client Researcher, University of Portsmouth

Sarah showed commitment, drive, empathy, confidence in us all as both individuals and as a group. Humour, warmth, adaptability, credibility. She also handled challenge and questioning really effectively.
