Hello! I’m Sas Petherick.

I have a Masters degree in Coaching & Mentoring from Oxford Brookes (my dissertation was a deep study into self-doubt). I’ve trained with the Coaches Training Institute and the Centre for Narrative Coaching and I am a Certified Dr. Martha Beck Life Coach.

I’m available for interviews, podcasts, guest posts, workshops and other collaborations.

  • How to cultivate self-belief
  • How self-doubt shows up in our lives
  • The body’s intelligence
  • Pragmatic mindfulness
  • Academic research into coaching
  • Developmental coaching models
  • Narrative coaching models
  • Attachment theory and coaching
  • Building a sustainable and successful coaching practice
  • Leading retreats
  • Supervision for coaches

Please email me or feel free to get in touch using the form below. I read every message I receive, and endeavour to respond within a few days.

Featured Speaking Events & Publications

Sisterhood Camp, fForest, Wales, June 2017

This four-day creative retreat at Cardigan Bay is the bomb! Flowers, foraging and fire-side chats in the most beautiful stretch of the Welsh coastline.

I’ll be hosting a mindfulness workshop to help you meet your creative muse. She is the creative force that sparks inspiration, urges us to make and knows exactly what filter is perfect for that flat-lay. Having a relationship with your muse is one of the foundations for self-trust and self-belief – it means that you feel the deep satisfaction and fulfilment of creating – regardless of how your work is received by the world.

All the details are here.

Blogtacular Conference, London, June 2017

I’m completely chuffed to be speaking at Blogtacular: the biggest, hottest UK conference for creatives, photographers, bloggers and indie business owners!

I’m hosting a workshop about self-doubt and creativity. We’ll explore your specific flavour of self-doubt and you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of why it’s showing up and the practical steps you can take to loosen the grip self-doubt has on your dreams.

Tickets are available here.

International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring

It was thrilling to have the findings of my Master’s research published in this respected academic journal.

I was also invited to present my research at the 2016 International Coaching & Mentoring Conference, in Oxford.

‘an extremely interesting study and paper’ – Editor, International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring.

Inspired Coach Magazine

I contribute a monthly column called ‘Casework Corner’ to Inspired Coach Magazine.

In 2015, my awkward 14-year-old self (with new braces and boobs) was delighted at being on the cover.

You can subscribe to this free magazine right here.

‘Sas Petherick is not a serious woman, (she is in fact filled with mischief, glee and wonder), but she is very serious about the art and skill of coaching. And so I was delighted when she said a big yes to being on our latest cover of inspired COACH Magazine and sharing her eclectic and amazing journey of both becoming a coach and her absolute fascination with our thoughts and minds as human beings.’
– Julie Parker, Inspired Coach Editor & CEO and Founder of Beautiful You Coaching Academy


Martha Beck Inc.

I’m honoured to have my story featured on Dr. Martha Beck’s website – you can read about how I and a few other MBI Coaches come to be um…MBI Coaches.

Are you feeling the pull to train as a coach?

I highly recommend exploring the MBI training programme – it’s the most comprehensive, heart-centred practitioner coach training  I know.
