What they said – SK Life Coaching

Testimonials - all clients gave me permission to share


‘The overall impact of coaching with Sara has been noticeable, not just by me but also by my family & friends. Sara walked alongside me while I broke down my goals into workable chunks. I worked out how to free myself from the anchors that prevented me from moving forward. Because of our sessions I feel lighter. I’ve stopped letting the past influence my future. I can’t thank Sara enough for helping me to unlock the answers I held inside of me.  Sara is a truly inspirational coach, with endless warmth and empathy.’    Jane



‘I found Sara’s approach in our team training to be extremely person centred, and I felt that she was genuinely interested in what I and all the other team members were saying. We looked at different models to look at the areas of our personal and professional life that need changing to benefit us both personally and professionally. Sara explained this very clearly to the group and helped me to apply it to my life. I found the coaching to be motivational and was pointed in the direction of empowerment and now know the tools to do this’.    Stephen



‘I was part of a group reflective coaching session for social workers led by Sara Knight. The purpose of the coaching was to help us understand the principle of self -analysis and how we can manage our emotions and help ourselves professionally, especially working in such a complex environment. I am normally very sceptical about these types of training, but found the session helpful and thought provoking. Thank you Sara, excellent session’    Paul



‘On first meeting Sara evidenced her professionalism and her undoubted level of skill quickly became evident. Sara is empathic and I very quickly established a feeling of trust not only in her as a Coach but also in her skills. As a result, I was able to take risks and verbalize difficult and confusing thoughts.  From the beginning I had a feeling of being with someone who knew, “thoroughly” what their role entailed and how to implement the Coaching models. Sara, very quickly helped me understand her role and my responsibility to do the “work” with her being the guiding light, so to speak. Sara was always very clear and succinct in her words and this made understanding and processing my thoughts a straightforward process. As a result of this, I was able to quickly turn confusion into clarity and from this attainable plans and goals for the future.  I always found Sara to be a very competent practitioner who “I feel” has an undoubted talent for the coaching role. I would happily recommend Sara as a Coach to anyone and will I am sure call on her skills again at some point in the future.’   Andrew


‘Sara helped me to identify problematic areas of my life. I found Sara’s approach very helpful. Sara has enabled me to open, previously shut doors. It has certainly given me things to think about. I am hoping that my life continues to move forward in a positive way. I cannot thank Sara enough for my coaching sessions with her support and encouragement’  Yvette



‘I found Sara’s coaching sessions helped me identify and overcome several problems I had been facing. I was able to help myself rather than receive advice. Sara helped me feel more motivated and able to overcome obstacles that I had created. Furthermore with Sara’s coaching, I now have the confidence to start further learning of which I am now doing’   Craig



‘Sara coached me on issues relating both to my professional work and personal life. Sara is an extremely supportive coach, who shows lots of warmth and empathy in her coaching style. She demonstrated this in our coaching sessions by really listening well to me and reflecting back my words and phrases that I was using. I always felt very positive about myself and the goals that I had chosen after working with Sara as she drew out my strengths and focussed on these. Sara took time to find out what was important to me. I always felt committed to the actions that I had agreed to at the end of our coaching sessions, and I felt that Sara really believed in my ability to achieve these. It felt very refreshing to have someone who showed this belief in me and as a consequence I believe I have gained confidence in myself as a person.  Sara always remained very professional throughout every session, re-capping on the previous session and the parameters for the next session. Thank you Sara I am sure you will inspire many more people like me’   Karen


‘The commitment that I recognised from Sara in helping me really inspired me to make changes. I have learnt to recognise the small steps that help to achieve my desired gaols from Sara coaching me. Now that I am more in control of my actions, my performance has improved and the people that know me have started to notice the difference. I am so delighted to have managed to organise my flat, improve my CV and actually secure work after so long. Sara has made me feel uplifted and valuable since our coaching sessions began. I believe in gaining greater potential as time goes on. Thank you Sara’   Rose



‘Sara provided me with a couple of coaching sessions. The first session Sara used the Wheel of Life’. Sara asked that I think about each area and identify where I believe I am at, and what I would like to get out life/achieve, with the areas I would like to improve. Sara supported me to discuss the evaluation of this model. This moved forward to a supported session about how I could improve areas of my life relating to work. Sara empowered me to think about all of the positives and the negatives and how I could ‘rephrase’ my thoughts. Sara inspired and motivated me to start challenging the way I thought about work and has provided such positive support. The impact of  Sara’s coaching has improved my mind set and helped me to push past the negative barriers. Overall Sara has helped me feel more positive about my work and has enhanced my self -belief about the job I do,   Thank you Sara’
