Leadership Coaching

I help both established and emerging leaders to find their own compelling voice as they face the challenges of a restless commercial world.

Team Building

I help teams to work better together through opening up to each other with empathy and honesty.


I help those who feel marginalised to regain their confidence and realise their value as individuals and colleagues.

Boards & Interviews

I help people to be themselves under pressure and tell their story in a way that’s engaging and memorable.

Who I Am

I am a communication and personal development coach. I help people to be great and unlock their potential.

My coaching is bespoke and focused on my clients’ individual needs. I use a mixture of my training as a humanistic counsellor and my skills as an ex-professional actress to achieve this.

I build strong relationships and trust with my clients. I listen and support, but also challenge and motivate. This enables my clients to become self-aware and able to build on their strengths and tackle their development needs.

Great communication is about being yourself, but more, with skill. Self-awareness is essential. I am all about raising that awareness, releasing people and organisations from self-imposed limitations and accentuating the positive. All my work is bespoke.

My coaching experience spans most business areas and I have many long-term relationships, working at the most senior executive level of blue chip institutions. My work ranges across leadership coaching, diversity programmes, team building, project delivery, change management, negotiation and deal making, emerging leaders, perception, and impact. I can also support the strategising of style and content in preparation for specific needs such as: pitches, private equity exits and investor presentations, media interviews, conferences, partnership and job panel interviews, and of course speeches.

My clients are from a wide range of companies, from the Banking, Accountancy, Actuarial, Private Equity, Information Technology, Telecommunications, Media, Entertainment, Leisure, Engineering, Retail, Commodities and Manufacturing sectors.

  • Sarah has an exceptional ability to get individuals and teams to truly focus on their big development issues, to open up and debate and resolve them, at the same time learning communication skills and finding out how they impact others through their styles of interaction. Sarah is flexible in her approach, willing to address the hot topics of the moment rather than forcing you to use a prepared format and content. She exudes energy and is great fun to be around. Sarah’s work has made a massive difference to the quality and impact of my personal communication and has transformed my team’s dynamics, making us more aware, happier together and much more effective.
