A Recent Testimonial - Executive Coaching - Wellbeing and Transition
"Sara understands the demands I face, and this includes the business side of my work and the impact of stress in having to make major structural decisions and changes in management styles. We regularly discuss my own responses to any conflicts I may need to mediate and I consider Sara to be a valuable person in my business life. I always benefit from our meetings and she is non-judgmental and I know that what we discuss remains totally confidential."... Mr D, London.
