1:1 Coaching

‘No matter where you go, there you are.’
Confucius

Transformational coaching is a powerful process which starts and ends with you. It raises your awareness, encourages you to take responsibility for your choices and exposes self-sabotage.

Our sessions

As your coach I will create a safe and supportive environment in which you can fully explore all aspects of your thinking and feeling, leading to new awareness and deep insights. I am skilled in working intuitively and energetically to help you see unconscious patterns, beliefs and behaviours which may be limiting you and preventing you from achieving the results you want.

Our sessions together will:

  • Raise your awareness of your unconscious patterns and processes, putting you in a position of choice about the life you are creating and the stories you choose to tell.
  • Challenge you to take full responsibility for your life and your actions – removing the option of blaming others and disempowering yourself.
  • Increase your self-belief by exposing your inner critic and revealing the ways in which you sabotage your own success.
  • Encourage you to be authentic – to face your fears and follow your heart.

How it works

Through a series of conversations I will use questions, feedback, experience and intuition to help you identify the core beliefs and unconscious assumptions that are limiting you in certain areas of your life.

We will meet approximately once a month for one and a half hours.

We will agree a number of sessions to work on a particular issue. Usually four sessions before review.

These sessions will take place at my venue or a mutually agreed location which offers a safe and supportive environment.

The coaching I did with Sarah (two one-to-one sessions) simply woke me up. Years later, I still feel the benefits of the coaching which has benefited both my business and personal life. One of the best things I’ve done – investing in myself for a change.

Sarah is an inspiration and provides truly transformational change through her coaching. She has helped me make one of the bravest decisions of my life and I am about to embark on a journey of a lifetime thanks to her. Thank you so much and I know, because of you, I will lead a happier and more fulfilled life.

I found working with Sarah both motivating and inspiring. I was given the space and freedom to explore many different facets of my personal and professional life, meaning I was able to identify the patterns of behavior and thinking that were holding me back. The coaching I received was supportive and actionable and has had a huge impact in my day-to-day, both in and outside of work. I would definitely recommend working with Sarah whatever you want to achieve as her coaching is tailored to you and your needs and I’ve found it of great benefit to me.

In September 2014, I started on Sarah’s coaching programme to become a coach. What happened after that; over the next 9 months, was a revelation. As well as enabling me to become a coach, Sarah’s gentle, intuitive and relaxed style exposed areas of my past that influenced my present life in a negative way. I could write pages and pages about the experience but words would not sum up the change I went through. I now see life in full HD technicolour vision, I know my priorities, I cherish time with people that are important to me, my social circle has expanded, I try new things, I feel brave, I laugh all the time and I have a full sense of worthiness. Whilst the journey was not always easy, the personal growth and absolute joy I now experience was worth it and I could never have imagined feeling this way. The last year has been life changing and I can only thank Sarah from the bottom of my heart.

Sarah Readings has provided coaching to me which I have found to be effective, exceedingly good value for money and a very supportive and personalised process. She has helped me to enhance my career as well as improving my work-life balance. I also participated in the ILM Coaching programme that Sarah led for the organisation I work for which was also a life-advancing experience and one which I will never forget. As well as learning to become a workplace coach via an engaging and experiential programme and gaining and formal qualification, the nature of coaching as a discipline and the way in which the programme was structured and taught by Sarah meant that I also learned an immeasurable amount about myself as a manager, colleague and personally. All of my interactions with Sarah have not only enabled me to become a more effective leader and coach but they will also help me to advance my career moving forward and will further boost my own happiness. I could not recommend Sarah more highly.

Sarah used her expert coaching skills and guidance to help me move my work forwards when I started my own business. I cant recomend her highly enough.

Sarah has completed a number of assignments for my company, all of which provided their own unique challenges which Sarah took in her stride and delivered fantastic results. As a coach and trainer she has the two key qualities I want; to be able to deliver outstanding results and to identify future business opportunities.

I was fortunate to meet Sarah for the first time when my employee, a large NHS Trust, commissioned Sarah Readings Limited to deliver a managers’ development programme. I had three one-to-one coaching sessions with Sarah and found this to be an insightful and liberating experience. Sarah’s skills and breadth of knowledge is vast and she uses many coaching techniques in a mix that purely her own and is outstandingly good and effective and I can confidently say that working with Sarah helped me make some really big changes in my working life.

I am so glad that I started this journey with Sarah. My experience has not only helped me to achieve my goals, but more importantly, it enabled me to discover who I am, what really makes me tick and to reach for authenticity like never before.

I had no idea where I wanted to go or how I’d get there. I only knew I had to do it. Sarah has the gift of being able to find the hidden treasures that allow one to achieve their goals. Throughout our work together, my relationships deepened in a way I never could have imagined. I interacted with much more freedom and confidence. Sarah gave me a control over my life that I have never before experienced. I suspect you have no idea how much I valued all the support at that time in my life, so, thank you, Sarah you are a treasure who works with grace and a rich blessing in my life.

Working with Sarah was truly transformational for me. She is a skilled and incisive coach and enabled me to see through the blocks that were holding me back and understand myself so much better. As a result of working with Sarah, I moved from a position where I was successful but that was no longer working for me to setting up my own business – and I haven’t looked back. I still think back to Sarah’s coaching whenever I need to get perspective and I use the techniques I learned from her Level 5 and Level 7 courses every day in my business. I can thoroughly recommend Sarah, but be careful – she might just change your life!
