Chemistry meeting - coach and coachee make sure they connect and are happy to work together
Coaching engagement - for business related coaching – a three-way conversation between coach, coachee and coachee’s line manager to be clear on expectations and business goals
Contracting - for business coaching this may form part of the engagement session, for personal and career coaching, this forms part of the first coaching session

"Sarah is an exemplary consultant and coach. Her approach is imaginative and creative but is very closely aligned to commercial and business performance. I am in no doubt that I would recommend her to anyone that wants to experience a change with results. A simple conversation with her makes you think differently...if you get the chance you should try it!"?
Talent Manager – Media Company?
“Coaching with Sarah has improved my workplace skills beyond measure. The format of the coaching meant that as well as immediate solutions I have also seen a significant long-term improvement in my management skills.”?
Manager – Global Charity?
"Sara has the kind of calm, insightful and un-imposing coaching style that allowed me to deeply tune- into myself with just the right amount of insightful observation to help me develop my own clarity. I couldn't recommend her more highly."
Art Director - Advertising
“Sara has a very calming demeanor about her, which made it very easy to relax, reflect on my thoughts and speak openly. Sara provided a great balance of personal coaching and business understanding with the examples we used, and this allowed me to collect my thoughts and 'get it' much easier and quicker. Sara had a good understanding about business and could quickly understand some specific scenarios or examples that we discussed. When I started the coaching sessions with Sara I was not clear enough about who I was and where I wanted to go next in my career. My objectives and future plans had been filled in by others because of the absence of my certainty. Today, I am a person who is confident on what I bring to the business and where I need to go in order to maximise my potential.”
Head of Business Improvement - Virgin Media
“Sarah’s coaching style and step-by-step approach helped me to rise above and calmly analyse the root cause of my issues and then provided me with a personal toolset to address and overcome them. I re-use the techniques all the time now. I can’t recommend Sarah enough.”?
Principal Legal Advisor – FTSE 50 Company
"Having been introduced to Sarah and initially being very sceptical I must say that the whole process has been extremely enlightening. It is one thing for peers to point out a persons positives and negatives but it is another to act on them in today's world. Working with Sarah has given me the strength to look at myself and promote me within my life. Not in a selfish way as to harm personal and professional relationships but in a manner as to reinvigorate myself with life.
An outstanding person who guides you in getting the best out of your life, something that we all deserve".
