Your Self-belief Map:

Navigate through your Self-doubt

Your self-doubt has absolutely nothing to do
with your capability or your destiny.

Being stuck in self-doubt can be heart-breaking.

Self-doubt is inherently protective – always on the lookout for any risk of
loss, disappointment or rejection. It shows up because what you are longing for,
really matters to you.

Self-doubt is a completely understandable, logical and sane response to psychological risk.

AND Transcending your self-doubt is healing,
liberating work that is absolutely possible for you.

It’s so easy to get stuck in the Self-doubt Loop

The good news is, we don’t have to stay stuck in the loop.

To find our way out, we need an experienced guide. And a map.

Your Self-belief Map is a ten-week small group coaching programme, to help you navigate through your Self-doubt.

Using proven approaches, practical tools and effective resources, you’ll be deeply supported to make sense of your particular flavour of self-doubt.

You’ll learn authentic ways (without ‘faking it until you make it’) to minimise the ways self-doubt holds you back, while honouring your particular circumstances, values, needs and preferences.

You can participate from anywhere in the world.

You’ll make tangible changes in how you think and feel, and in what you create and do.

This programme has been life-changing. Understanding my unconscious beliefs has been a complete revelation to me and when I dug them up my self-doubt made perfect sense! I could see how I have spent years waiting for everything to be perfect until I took action.

The quality of support from Sas was a perfect balance of hearing me and challenging me. For anyone wanting to get to know their self-doubt – do this course – it is incredible value for money and worth every single penny.

When I signed up for Self-belief Map, I was looking for support to start a business. What actually happened transformed my life for the positive in ways I had never expected.

After years as a stay at home mum, along with leaving a career I thought would be for life, I’d completely lost my sense of self, my sense of direction. I was so stuck. Since the programme, my relationships, my health and my business have been transformed for the better and I’ve rediscovered forgotten talents. I got my mojo back!

Dr Georgina Green

Your Self-belief Map is much deeper than anything else I’ve done. Instead of trying to fix what’s wrong with me, this programme helped me to feel, understand, accept and change some of my behaviours.

Sas’ profound kindness and sense of humour made a huge difference. I was able to use everything I learnt very quickly and it was so helpful to be part of a small and supportive group. Even if you think you’ve done so many things for yourself, try this. You’ll shift your perspective of how you’re living your life and claim a more vibrant one!

Your Self-Belief Map includes:


The programme content including all the approaches, tools and resources has been informed by proven evidence-based research, my own masters study into self-doubt and years of coaching with hundreds of women.


Taking around an hour a week to complete, each of the six Modules acts as stepping stone through a complete methodology, designed to spark revelations, deepen insight, and enable you to take meaningful action.


We’ll gather together each week to go through programme material as a group. Our group calls are a mix of teaching, coaching, learning and sharing – you’ll be fully supported. All calls will be recorded in case you can’t attend.


Self-doubt is exacerbated by loneliness and convinces us we are alone in this. Meeting as a group is intentional and purposeful – we’ll share our experience and insight, connect with and contribute to, each others learning. 


As adults, our learning is intimately associated with connection, safety and experimentation. To that end, our learning site is completely separate from all other social media and our class size will be limited to 30 places.


After six weeks of programme material, you’ll have all the support you need for an additional month: check-in, seek help, reassurance and guidance in the discussion forum as well a bonus group coaching call.

Enrolment is open!

The 2019 Autumn Class of Your Self-Belief Map begins on Tuesday 1st October 2019.
Ongoing support will be available from Sas until Friday 13th December 2019.

What are your doubts about joining in?

I'm worried I won't be able to do this right.

You can’t do this wrong. Each of the exercises has been thoughtfully created to allow you to have your own experience.

From Week One you will have new understandings and practical approaches you can experiment with. There is no pass/fail here (I am wise to your perfectionist ways).

I get easily overwhelmed with too much information.

Being inundated with material can trigger our doubt and resistance. Unfortunately, so many teachers and people running online courses, mistake volume for value – this is not that.

For each module, I try to give you just enough information to understand the relevance and intention behind it. 75% of this process is about you taking experimental, imperfect action.

I have no willpower to make any changes.

If willpower hasn’t helped you make changes, I am not surprised! When we push against our resistance, it tends to resist us.

One of the biggest myths of working through self-doubt is that you need to put your energy into ‘just doing it’. But resistance is our very natural response to the discomfort self-doubt creates. In Your Self-belief Map, we will be addressing the causes of your self-doubt, rather than trying to overcome the symptoms of it.

As you uncover the very understandable reasons for the ways you hold yourself back, your resistance naturally decreases as does the need for all that willpower.

I enrol in programmes with great intentions and... never start.

Me too!

Your Self-Belief Map was created with you in mind. That’s why class sizes are limited and why we meet each week as a group – from day one, you’ll be a key member of a safe and supportive community.

Each weekly module takes less than an hour to complete. Plus you’ll have lifetime access to all programme materials and workshop recordings.

I wish I had big dreams, but self-doubt stops me from doing everything.

Self-doubt is triggered on the basis of risk – how vulnerable something feels – rather than the size of your dream or the impact it might have. This is why our experience of self-doubt can seem overwhelming and disproportionate.

In Your Self-belief Map, we’ll spend time exploring the (often unconscious) beliefs that have led to your extreme response. The approaches we’ll use will help you, whatever the size or scope of your dream.

I tend to hide in big groups of people and I need time to process new information.

It’s really important to me that you feel seen and heard and that you feel safe, so class sizes will be limited.

This means you will have a cohort of people that you can get to know and there will be time and space for you to be supported.

I give up as soon as it gets hard (and then I eat my feelings).

I know how lonely it is when it feels like you are the only one who isn’t feeling all hopeful and positive.

Usually, this is because we are doing such a great job of keeping ourselves safe. It’s completely understandable to be worried about shining a light on your self-doubt. I’m right with you.

This is a safe and supportive place and there is nothing you could reveal about yourself that would be unacceptable. There are small class sizes and our discussion forum is separate from all other social media.

Do I need any special technology to participate?

Nope. You’ll need a computer (or tablet) and internet connection.

Group calls will be conducted over Zoom (you’ll have one-click access to a private, secure line). Our learning site is hosted by Ruzuku – it’s intuitive to use and you’ll have lifetime access to all materials.

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.

Hello you. I’m Sas Petherick, creator of Your Self-belief Map.

My approach to your self-doubt is evidence-based, practical, fun and deeply compassionate. I have an MA in Coaching and Mentoring from Oxford Brookes University, and my Master’s dissertation was a deep study into self-doubt.

At the core of my coaching methodology are proven approaches for cultivating self-acceptance, self-worth, self-trust, and self-belief. It’s incredibly fulfilling to have helped hundreds of people to do this for themselves.

Self-doubt is my story too. I spent decades (I’m a slow learner!) wading through the treacle of over-delivering, people pleasing and feeling like a fraud. It was exhausting and lonely. Now I know there is a way out.

I’d love to help you navigate through your self-doubt.

Kind Words

What past participants are saying

I can’t recommend this course highly enough for anyone who feels frozen by their self-doubt – it really has made me reevaluate my whole life and went far beyond my initial expectations. Right from the start, the course was informative and engaging, and Sas’ support was immediate.

Since starting the course, I have been to a networking event that I would NEVER have done without the work I did here, and have started implementing real changes.

I am becoming more open to talking about myself, my successes (occasionally) and I have stopped panicking (a bit less, anyway!) about wanting huge success immediately.

Penny Badowska

The biggest positive change for me is being so much more aware of WHY my self-doubt appears and thinking it through. The calmness and logic of this is a huge step forward. I’ve been able to better understand my self-doubt, connect with my values and create a stronger platform to move forward from. I’m still a work in progress – aren’t we all?! – but I feel I’ve got some tools now to buoy me along.

Working with Sas I felt so incredibly warmly supported; for an online experience I didn’t expect the level of cocooning, care and attention, it was simply terrific and made the hard work so much more possible and enjoyable. And the forum was SUCH a safe place to share, I felt very connected to my co-mappers.

This is an incredibly gentle and powerful experience, and definitely worth doing if you have lived with self-doubt.

Sarah Lynas

I’ve had coaching in the past and also tried counselling. None of it has addressed the root cause of self-doubt and of feeling somehow displaced in the world. I’ve just felt I’ve always been skirting around issues, whereas the Self Belief Map has been providing a way to help unravel my ‘messy’ mind and move forward.

What’s really dawned on me is that this programme is only the start of things – it’s not the magic solution to everything (although I think there’s magic dust floating around here).

What a privilege to have been part of this programme and feel SO comfortable and un-judged in this community. Massive thanks to everyone in the group for sharing your stories, self-doubts and revelations and, in doing so, providing so much comfort, insight and inspiration. And, of course, to the amazing and nurturing Sas – you’re one of a kind!

Marta Clayton

I can’t express how much Your Self-belief Map helped and has healed me at a time when I felt lost, vulnerable and wounded. I signed up after losing my confidence following a redundancy, and I was worried about what it may reveal and that I would still feel lost and uncertain.

As a result of the programme, I’ve been able to start overcoming my fear of being judged and set up a new website and blog. I have realised how brave I can be. I am calmer and more confident in myself. I have had to work hard and put a lot of emotional energy into faking it on the surface in many situations but now I have a strong base within. Sas has an incredibly strong and supportive way of working which means you feel completely safe and will take risks.

Sas enables you to look at challenging concepts in a new and original way and then to make positive changes. She teaches you to do this at a pace that’s right for you and to learn to evaluate what you are doing so at the end of the course. This means you gain the capacity and the tools yourself to carry on your personal development.

Kate Roxburgh

The approach Sas uses in Your Self-belief Map led to some profound new insights for me.

I loved that the whole programme is evidence-based. It’s all stayed with me and I’m still using what I learnt months later. I have a much better understanding of who I am and my unconscious beliefs, this has helped me to feel so much better equipped to plan where I want to go next.

Understanding what’s going on in that head of mine has helped my confidence and I don’t go into those spirals of self-doubt anymore.

Jane Shuttleworth

I never thought this would be as transformative as it was.

Sas’ approach is so open and honest and welcoming, it felt personal and intimate. Honestly, I think that was the trick – the process was so easy, my guard was down and I was able to see connections between my life and self-doubt that I’d never seen before, and not from lack of trying!

The process in Your Self-belief Map is truly gentle (which was just what I needed), but also so effective. Even though the formal class is over I continue to look back at the workbooks and my notes and utilize the process.

Laurie Matthews

Working with Sas is like being given a ginormous comforting hug, then being sent out to play with a reassuringly firm pat on the bum.

Sas has a deep personal and professional understanding of what it looks, feels and sounds like to live with self-doubt which meant I could settle in, with trust, to the processes she led us through. She designs beautiful exercises which transported me to a mental playground where I curiously explored things about myself which I’d never before considered.

That heady blend, in my experience, cannot fail to result in sparkling insights and delightful transformation.
