Are you ready to change your
self-doubt story?

YOU CAN TRANSCEND YOUR SELF-DOUBT.

 Maybe you are feeling fed up with how self-doubt holds you back
creatively, professionally, relationally, but you don’t know how to change things.

Perhaps you have spent so many years working really hard to avoid self-doubt,
that the idea of softening into your vulnerability feels terrifying.

It could be that self-doubt has snuck up on you because of a significant
or unexpected change and you are feeling lost at sea.

THIS IS AN INVITATION TO TRY A NEW WAY.

COACHING with me is heartfelt, research-led,
and immediately applicable to your life.

Our coaching sessions are an exploration of who you are, the life you are creating and how self-doubt is holding you back.

We’ll uncover who you are underneath your self-doubt.

Exploring the narrative threads of your story will help you to understand how these have been woven into the patterns and themes of your life. 

Sessions can be revelatory, emotional, transformative, healing, and often, a huge relief.

Self-doubt is an entirely understandable response to psychological risk. It has nothing to do with your capability or your destiny and everything to do with the ways you have learned to preserve your sense of safety and belonging. Which means you probably aren’t cursed.

My intention is to walk with you on this part of your path and help you to own your strengths and gifts, to be braver and ultimately, to live in a way that brings you more fulfilment and meaning.

You’ll discover who you are as the author of your own story.

This creates a sense of quiet power that comes from having your own back, no longer needing so much external validation, voicing your opinions, ideas and preferences and saying yes to the projects that excite you (even if they are also a tiny bit arse-clenchingly scary).

I’m pretty introspective and like to think I am good at problem-solving, but time and again Sas has helped me see a fresh perspective on issues and struggles that I’ve been working away on for years on my own.

My self-belief has flourished, I’ve taken brave new steps and though I still regularly feel terrified, I know what it means and how to push beyond it now. I have her wisdom and the great gains from our work together to carry with me always.

Sara Tasker

You forever changed my view of coaches. Or, rather, I want to say you are a remarkable coach. For years, my experience of coaches was their dogged focus on fixing, saving, advising. I decided coaching was a career for people who have a great need to tell others what to do.

You are different: You help (and respect) grown women to find their own answers deep within. You honour the complex landscapes – mountains; valleys; rivers; ruts – within each woman. You facilitate, rather than fix. You know that insights, illuminations, are in their hearts; their minds — not yours.

Gail Overstreet

I just want to say thank you so so much. Hate to sound like a total cliche but working with you has been truly life-changing. Working with you over this winter will always remain a pivotal point in my 30s.

You freed me from my own prison of doubt and fear.

Arohanui,

ONE-OFF VELOCITY SESSION
  • Perfect for a single issue: a challenge you are facing, a belief or behaviour you want to change, a decision you are struggling to make, something you want to explore:  you can bring anything to a velocity session.
  • We’ll meet for a 90-minute sessionWe’ll map out where you are, where you want to be and the obstacles in your way. You’ll gain deeper clarity, fresh perspectives and a plan to take forward. 
  • Depending on the nature of our discussion, you may take away practices or experiments to try out between our sessions. And I’ll be available to you on email.
  • For supportive accountability, we’ll meet for a 30-minute catch-up call 6-8 weeks later.
self-belief coaching
  • Longer-term coaching gives us the time and space to uncover the root causes of your self-doubt, make sense of the ways it holds you back in your life right now, and for you to develop and embody tangible self-belief.
  • We’ll meet for six 60 minute sessions over three-four months. Our time is semi-structured, so we’ll agree the general intentions of where you want to get to and sometimes we’ll excavate a decades old memory and sometimes we’ll explore what happened an hour ago. It’s all relevant to who you are becoming.
  • In between sessions you’ll be able to practice and experiment who you are becoming out in the wild. I’m available to you for additional support over email throughout our coaching agreement.

NB: Payment plans are available for Self-belief Coaching. If you experience any unexpected or technical weirdness,
please don’t hesitate to email. Either myself or Shauna (my right-hand woman) will be able to resolve this swiftly.

Before coaching with Sas I thought that I had to improve so much about myself before I could feel like I deserved a good life. I was focussed on pleasing others, performing for others, putting on a show in every area of my life in order to feel acceptable and worthy of a good life.

During my time working with Sas, she made me realise that the more I stay true to myself, who I am naturally, the more I can connect with others and get on a path that feels good to me – pretty much the opposite of what I have been doing for so long.

It’s been a revelation and I am feeling optimistic about what is possible for my life for the first time since I was a young child. Thank you for the wisdom Sas.

Gill

Coaching with Sas was brilliant.

Posed questions which made me think differently. Offered some really useful tools and techniques which I am still using. End result a more confident and happier me. Big recommendation!

Jane Shuttleworth, Bath

Without any doubt, it is the best investment I have ever made in myself. There were tears and laughter, resistance and swearing, all the time knowing that Sas is a total master at sensing where the tightest knots really are and then gently but firmly encouraging you to unpick them.

It’s been like adding the final pieces to a puzzle that I’ve been grappling with for years. There are small tangible differences, such as the pleasure of coloured nail varnish – and monumental paradigm shifts where I have been able to explore how it is that I view the world and how I live in it – with physical, emotional and spiritual elements overlapping and intermingling.

Dr. Rae Ritchie

Sas has a knack for immediately cutting through deep-seated beliefs I hold and getting down to the real business of what is holding me back.

Despite working through my most uncomfortable fears, coaching sessions with Sas are effortless and always fun. I hired Sas for support during recovery from a long illness and to help determine what it is I really want to do in life. She more than delivered on both counts and brings an irresistible blend of wise counsel, inspiration, kindness and humour to every session. I am forever grateful to her.

Fiona, London

I’ve radically changed my life and coached with hundreds of women to change theirs.

I have a Masters degree in Coaching and my dissertation was a deep study into the experience of self-doubt.

I’m also a certified Coach and trained therapist (Dr. Martha Beck, Coaches Training Institute, Narrative Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy, Shadow Work).

The evidence-led basis of my work runs alongside my intuitive felt-sense of what in you, is asking for our attention. You can expect active and deep listening, compassionate challenge, as well as the resources for you to create tangible and meaningful changes in your life.

I committed to supporting you to reach the goals you have for yourself, even when you own self-belief falters.

This work is deeply fulfilling and meaningful to me – I want to be in your corner.

You don’t have to do this alone.

Questions you might have…
Why do I need a coach?

The thing is, you really don’t need a coach. You’re smart, thoughtful, self-aware. You’re perfectly capable of reading All The Books, taking steps and over time, figuring things out.

But I bet you’ve been doing this on your own for a while? And my guess is that ‘results are variable’ – some days you’re rocking it, and others you’re in the grip of self-doubt or procrastinating as if it were an Olympic sport. I imagine that sometimes you are left feeling confused and frustrated that you’re dealing with the same problem for the eleventeenth time.

It’s really hard to see the way forward when you’re sitting in the middle of it. Having a trained and experienced guide in your corner but not in your everyday life, makes it SO much easier to shortcut through the obstacles and challenges. 

I’ve never invested in myself like this before.
It’s amazing what we DO spend money on in the hope of cultivating self-belief!

But when you make the choice to consciously invest in your growth and development, you are doing something really courageous. You are saying to yourself that you’re ready to try new things, to ask for help, to take responsibility for actively participating in the creation of your life. 

Amazing things will happen from that deceptively simple, life-changing decision.

How quickly will i get results?
For some clients, the insights and new perspectives from our first session mean changes start happening right away. For most, it’s a slower, steadier process.

You’ll notice shifts in both the external reality and internal experience of your life. The outward changes are usually tangible and involve progress towards whatever you bring to our work.

 The unseen changes are less easy to measure but are powerful and long-lasting. You think and feel differently about your life. You’ll have deeper levels of self-awareness, self-belief, and self-trust, and you’ll be armed with new resources to support yourself.

Do I just need Therapy?

Coaching is for people who are mentally well and focuses on growth and development. It’s about allowing more of YOU into your life – your emotions and experiences, your natural strengths, what you value and the thoughts you are thinking about yourself and your life – for the purpose of helping you create what you want.

Generally, therapeutic interventions help people who are experiencing psychological disharmony and often involve diagnosis and treatment. Sometimes clients like to work with a therapist in tandem to coaching. Sometimes we find that coaching might not be the best thing for you right now.

self-doubt stops me from doing everything (including working on my self-doubt).
It’s completely understandable to feel worried about what coaching might reveal to you about your self-doubt.  But our sessions are not about opening a ‘can of worms’ or confronting memories or events you find upsetting or difficult. Instead, we bring your self-doubt along – by acknowledging and understanding the reason for your self-doubt, you can begin to work with it instead of constantly resisting it.

We’ll go at your pace. And there is nothing you could say or reveal that would impact my deep respect for your courage to engage in this work.  It might be helpful to know that clients often say our work is way more fun than they expected!

If I’m not quite ready for coaching, how can I get to know you better?
I have a free quiz that will reveal your predominant Self-doubt Archetype – this is a great way of dipping your toes in the lake of my coaching. I also have a newsletter you can sign up to receive a couple of times a month(ish). Come and join me on Instagram!
I have another question.

I’m so happy to answer any questions you might have – email me at [email protected] and we’ll take it from there.

Kind Words

What past CLIENTS SAY ABOUT COACHING WITH ME

I hired Sas because I wanted someone to call bullshit on my sophisticated inner critic and I wanted to be witnessed, championed, and encouraged.

I had an idea that wouldn’t go away and come hell or high-water, I needed this idea to be birthed. I was getting stuck in the weeds, over-analyzing everything and feeling defeated before I had really begun. Sas helped me to find clarity and meaning in my idea and lovingly championed me as I launched a second business!

Sas helped me to reclaim aspects of my essential self that I had been ignoring for far too long.

Jac McNeil

Before I started coaching with Sas, my wildest dreams, and my biggest fears seemed all wrapped up together in a big mess that was keeping me stuck and unhappy.

Sas – with her amazing way of encouraging, cheerleading, ass-kicking, and bullshit-calling – has helped me to unpack all of that and find my way through. And that change I’d never have the balls to make? Yeah. I made it! Sas brought genuine magic to our work together.

Debra Cowie

Right from the start of my first session, Sas made me feel supported and comfortable. She has a knack for immediately cutting through deep-seated beliefs I hold and getting down to the real business of what is holding me back. I hired Sas for support during recovery from a long illness and to help determine what it is I really want to do in life. She more than delivered on both counts and brings an irresistible blend of wise counsel, inspiration, kindness and humour to every session. 

Despite working through my most uncomfortable fears, coaching sessions with Sas seem effortless and always fun, I really look forward to them. It feels like chatting to a dear friend. Except, I’ve never known a friend with such razor-sharp clarity and enviable wisdom. I am forever grateful to her.

Fiona Jeffrey

Sas’ writing resonated with me, so I thought perhaps she could help. I hoped she’d understand something I’d been stuck on for a good long while. At first, I did a lot of talking, then bam! Suddenly the pieces clicked, Sas helped to illuminate this crazy pattern I’d been living for decades. It was so unexpected and powerful, like a light going on.

Now I know what’s happening, I understand it, I’m no longer stuck, I’ve finally started moving forward. After a single session. This is an incredible process.

Kathleen Patterson

After coaching with Sas I know I am worthy and capable of loving this new life and creating magic and possibility every single day.

PTSD had been kicking my butt for several years and recovery had been expensive, painful, soul-sucking and slow. Through Sas’ coaching, I found long-forgotten joy, colour and hope bubbling up in my body. Sas’ supportive inquiry, deep questions, fun homework, and faith in me, produced deep healing at a core level. Sas rocks – just find a way to do it!

Marilyn Turnley, Saskatchewan, Canada

She is unconditional love in action. Sas is a modern-day wise woman. She does not change your life with the wave of a magic wand, but intuitively listens and provokes you to get to your soul’s root.

You do the work; she is there to offer another perspective via thoughtful, transformative questions and comments. 

Alicia-Marie, Connecticut

Exploring my path of resistance with Sas has pushed me through personal barriers that I didn’t even realize existed after 20+ years of therapy. 

Our sessions provided me with the courage to leap and I feel as if I am soaring. Sas creates a safe atmosphere that gives you the permission you didn’t realize you were seeking. 

Jen Everitt

For the first time in my life, I’m choosing to follow my heart over what I think I am obliged to do. 

I was always rushing from one project to the next, looking for happiness and validation from the outside. Sas worked with me to identify the negative beliefs keeping me trapped in this cycle and to let them go.

Working with Sas has allowed me to find a peace I would never have discovered otherwise. I don’t know where this adventure will take me, but I’m very much enjoying the ride!

Kate Evans, Oxford

I cannot believe how easy it is to talk with Sas, and how quickly she is able to get to the core issues that block me from having the life I want.

People in my life notice I am more relaxed, happy and fun to be around. 

Ellen, Social Worker, New York

Our sessions are so awesome, I can be grappling with something for WEEKS and we meet and in a few short minutes, BINGO – clarity! It’s incredible.

I’ve realised the constant sense of dissonance in my world has come from me not asking for what I REALLY want. You’ve helped me understand this on the deepest level, but also HELLO BOUNDARIES. You’ve helped me see that clear boundaries is the fastest and most effective way to connect with people. I’m lighter, freer, more ME than I ever thought possible. I never would have made the connection between my crippling self-doubt and my lack of boundaries. Everything has shifted because of this insight.

Tania, Melbourne

Sas is so big-hearted and bullshit-free.  She witnessed me through a significant life change, with insights so spot-on it was uncanny.  She offered observations about unconscious behaviours I hadn’t recognised before, and that awareness has equipped me with choice.  

Sas encouraged, and supported, and she shone a light. I cannot recommend Sas highly enough as a wise soul with much insight, and with a clear passion to help people find the answers already within them. Expect to be supported, expect to be challenged, expect to grow.

Meredith Reynolds

I felt trapped and stuck and after the very first session, Sas got me really thinking about my life in a dynamic and radically different way.

I have learned so much about myself and the things holding me back with the help of Sas’s clear thinking and incredible insight. She gives you practical solutions and helps you build a plan that actually feels possible. I didn’t expect to laugh as much in our sessions as I do!

This isn’t an easy way to change your life – Sas makes you do the work too – but it is definitely worth it.

Erica, London

The changes to my life since I coached with Sas, have been huge and numerous. I now have a toolkit of support to help me enjoy the life I have and deal with the inevitable ups and downs at work and at home.

My thinking is purposeful and constructive; I’m present to the little moments of magic that occur with my darling family. I’ve gone from feeling invisible and unnecessary to recognising the value I bring at home and at work. I accept me – quirks and all. As my 6-year old would say, it’s “whizz-bang!”

Gilly, Wellington New Zealand

The lasting impact is more than I had hoped for. I unexpectedly lost my mum a few days after approaching Sas for coaching – and can honestly say I couldn’t have been in safer, kinder, wiser hands, at such a raw, yet purposeful time.

Sas brings a wisdom that is magical, but always had me feeling as though we were meeting as fellow travellers on the journey – what felt like ease and flow in the sessions, was supported by rigour and follow-up outside the sessions.

Jacqui, Northumberland

Working with Sas was a transformative experience with reverberations across my personal and professional life.

Thought wrangling is a perfect description of what Sas does. She sits with you while you unpack the messy boxes of thoughts, baggage and dreams and asks the questions that help you understand what you’re seeing and how to deal with it all.

There is no judgement, just humour and insight and guidance all put out there with lots of love and focus.

Fiona, Uganda

The changes to my life since I coached with Sas, have been huge and numerous. I now have a toolkit of support to help me enjoy the life I have and deal with the inevitable ups and downs at work and at home.

My thinking is purposeful and constructive; I’m present to the little moments of magic that occur with my darling family.

Gilly, Wellington New Zealand

I’ll really never be able to think in the same way again! Working with Sas has helped me to understand that everything in my life stems from my thoughts, all of which are completely under my control.

My neural pathways have been altered, like a bloody mind-blowing paradigm shift!

Gem, Oxford

I’ve learnt to trust myself in a way I never dreamed would be possible. Working with Sas is like looking into a mirror, but a magical one. In this mirror, my mess turned into harmony, my fumbling into clarity, and my fear dissolved into joy and laughter.

I have awesome tools to work with. And listen, you don’t have to have a nervous breakdown and be all weird before you sign up! Everyone can stand to be more fabulous. Sas will get you there.

Inger Dybvig-Kenobi, Gloucestershire

I knew I needed help navigating through a time of high transition in my life and from our very first session, I felt as though Sas knew me.

Sas is adept at putting me at ease with my situation and any circumstances I find myself facing. Her gift to me has been opening my eyes to my own power and wisdom. After each session, I’m left with an amazing sense of clarity and being understood.

Sas is a delight! I can’t thank her enough for the sense of stability and calmness she has helped me achieve.

Liz, Virgina

You have helped me grow up. And by that I mean I have been able to leave the old version of me where it belongs – in the Past. I’ve managed to separate those petrified emotions surrounding my issues about artistry, creativity and my spirituality. No more separation – my heart is all for integration.

Your clever, wise and spot-on reflections have helped me in this year-long process. I am now tuned in and accept the natural rhythm of ebb and flow when it comes to creating, in every form. And even though I am psychic and know how to tune into others, it’s not always easy to hear ones inner voice of wisdom when our Spirit wants us to grow.

That is where you helped me – Sas you are a divine Sage, disguised as a human being.

Charlotte Netz

Sas has some kind of magic. With Sas’ support, I’ve turned a path filled with fear into one that has become a journey back home to my own self.

Sas’ perspective is fresh and personalised. Even after one session, I knew this was the best choice I’ve made in a long time. 

Helen, Wales

After yet another burnout, to do with work, I asked Sas to help me figure out how to get myself back to centre.

Sas offered new perspectives and taught me some wonderful tools that I have been able to use to ‘check in’ with myself and to reframe situations. I highly recommend hiring Sas as a guide!

Teresa, Bellingham, Washington

Working with Sas has been life-altering. Her coaching style creates a safe, loving, gentle environment that fosters the perfect space to explore and play, while also digging deep within.

Sas is the most intuitive soul I’ve ever met. If anyone is looking to amp up their life, connect with this woman. She is a freaking rockstar!

Shannon, California

I’ve been struggling with my weight for three decades and was convinced I was broken beyond repair. But our sessions have proved I’m not a weight-loss unicorn after all!

By working on my thoughts and deepest, longest-held beliefs I’m making real changes in my life – slowly, gently, and more surprising of all… easily.

The best part is that the weight loss feels like a happy bonus, amongst a new calmness of mind, body, and spirit. 

Nicola, Scotland

I felt trapped and stuck and after the very first session, Sas got me really thinking about my life in a dynamic and radically different way.

I have learned so much about myself and the things holding me back with the help of Sas’s clear thinking and incredible insight. She gives you practical solutions and helps you build a plan that actually feels possible. I didn’t expect to laugh as much in our sessions as I do!

This isn’t an easy way to change your life – Sas makes you do the work too – but it is definitely worth it.

Erica, London

My sessions with Sas have laid the foundations for my future; solid, rooted in kindness and full of love.

Sas has helped me understand myself on a level that I have never experienced before. Her intuitive and gentle guidance towards the issues being discussed is effortless and her wicked sense of humour makes our sessions relaxed and full of ease.

I feel seen. I feel cherished. I feel powerful.

Nancy

Being coached by Sas is both safe and scary… she has the ability to make you feel secure and valued yet constantly provokes and challenges to get the best from you.

Her intuition was frankly amazing and allowed me to fully explore who I really was. The transformation is evident and I am grateful for her championing of me – I felt ‘seen’ and felt appreciated for it.

"The quiz was straight-forward but the results that came back were insightful, enormously comprehensive and spookily accurate! I’ve already started to action some of the experiments to embody self-belief" - Debbie
