Sarah Kerr Coaching Testimonials

Working with you helps me remain focused on the direction I am taking, whilst not letting my past influence me. I find you empathetic and curious.
Natural, you come across as relaxed and following a natural rhythm rather than a schedule.
Very supportive, you answered my distress call at the beginning of April, and really helped me get through a sticky patch successfully.
I am extremely grateful for that one. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you. I know that ultimately I am responsible for my progress and direction, but the support you are providing is a considerable help.Thank you!

I have gained a lot of reassurance and huge artillery of mindfulness and meditation techniques which I feel I can confidently use in my times of need.
You have taught me to trust myself and very importantly look after myself. You have helped me become more of the person I knew I could be. I have described my coaching experience to many friends as a proactive way of helping me.
Coaching has given me the tools I was lacking for in my times of need, and helped me unscramble the noise in my head. You never sugar-coated things, but always delivered the words I needed to hear with warmth and compassion. A huge thank you!

Talking with you I was able to gain a different perspective. I felt calmer and more rational and was able to take a step back in certain situations that I could not control. You are the perfect coach to women of my age and have an empathy that sits well with me. Remember I used to say “I am a grown woman, I should know ……”, and you had the right sort of emotional awareness to “talk me through it”. Thank you for being my Coach.

‘Sarah doesn’t miss a trick. You can talk for 45 minutes (and she will let you if she sees that you are benefiting from it), afterwards she will pick up and remember key points where she can make insightful observations’ Key words to describe Sarah’s coaching – friendly, dedicated and profoundly interested’.

Working with you has given me clarity on what my stress factors are in my life and have helped me make decisions to reduce the stress. You helped me make sense of the fact that it is normal to feel stressed or anxious when dealing with issues in my life, and that it’s not just that I can’t cope and there is a problem with me.
My coaching experience has enabled me to power through a very difficult time in my life and each coaching session I learnt something about myself or those close to me to give me a new piece of clarity.
Overall I think it has really helped me focus on what is important in my life, what I want to achieve for myself rather than to please others. You are kind, thoughtful and caring, like a friend who wants the best for you but with an impartial view and professional approach.
You made me feel like my thoughts and feelings are valid and gave me tools to make positive changes in my life, gain confidence and focus on what is important. I cannot thank you enough for all your help, support and guidance.

As Sarah led us through her thoroughly researched programme, and I took part in the many meditations that she shares throughout the course, I could *feel* the benefits for myself. Permission to just stop, clear my mind and take a moment away from it all gave me some much-needed breathing space, and I didn’t realise how much I needed that until I got it. The more I practised this over the weeks, the better I felt and the less sceptical I became. As the course progressed, I began to really look forward to Sarah’s sessions. Some weeks I would attend very stressed from work, but when I left, I would feel on top of the world.
It’s got to the point now that I’m incorporating meditation into my life as often as I can. If I feel things are getting on top of me, I take ten minutes out to meditate, and afterwards I’m able to focus clearly again. It’s just great to have this tool at my disposal.
Sarah is a lovely human being, so warm and welcoming in her style, and so passionate and well-informed… if you can go along, please do. If you’re sceptical like I was, you won’t be by the end. I was so sad that I wouldn’t be coming back!

‘I feel that by talking everything through, it helped me to process what the cause of the problems were, which meant that I could deal with them more effectively. Sarah was easy to talk to, listened really well and was really kind in her responses. She asked questions of me to challenge why I thought a certain way, which was good. She listened really well and clarified everything that we did’

‘Sarah helped me so much leading up to my GCSE’s. I was suffering from panic attacks and she gave me breathing techniques and positive quotations to use to help me through these. Talking to Sarah put me at ease and she was really friendly so I didn’t feel awkward at all. I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling. Chat to her she is a great listener’

Lightbulb moment(s) during sessions so far ‘Realising that fun was a value, as I had been conditioned that it was a reward. Realising the pressure I put myself under to achieve perfection and would stop playing my piano if I made a mistake and start again, I realised this had been a learned behaviour.
Female
Aged 49
You are an effective listener who has an intuitive understanding of my needs and who has guided me to reach my own conclusions without telling me and you have used various techniques to help me get there, all of which have suited me very well.
I would definitely recommend you and I would say to any new coach, you will get out of this experience what you put in with the skilful, knowledgeable and empathetic Sarah who is passionate about her work and the help she can give.

Testimonials

Education

Our Year 5/6 children really enjoyed their sessions with Sarah who built a great rapport with them. They learned about the physical effects of anxiety/stress on their bodies and practical strategies to manage these.
This proved invaluable in helping equip our children with the skills to build emotional resilience for the future – lots of positive feedback received from children and parents. Thank you so much, Sarah.
Mrs Lou Rhodes
Headteacher, Braishfield Primary School
THANK YOU! very much for letting me take part in your sessions. I have learned a great deal from you and am already using some of your ideas in my ELSA interventions. I really think that the children at Braishfield have enjoyed and benefited from the lessons and are ready to take their SATS Tests more relaxed and prepared to free the challenge.

The Stop, Discover and Transform programme

Testimonials

transform

I know I am comfortable speaking about my experiences with others but I wasn’t expecting to learn so much from the experiences of the other participants.
The Stop, Discover and Transform programme was a safe space to explore some of the most difficult feelings in a comfortable way in the company of new friends.
Stop, Discover and Transform Participant
I do feel I received good value - particularly when I go back and look at my notes and see what I learned and achieved. We have access to the group and playback of the sessions so always there to revisit. That is good value in itself.
Stop, Discover and Transform Participant

‘It feels easier opening up to people who are impartial and have no vested interest in the outcome (apart from wanting the best for me). The group made me feel less alone and more aware that women share many of the same issues and insecurities. I love the way the course was structured to build upon what we had learnt the previous week.’

‘I worked with Sarah over the course of six months to achieve some goals I had set myself, related to the running of my business. I achieved the goals I had set earlier than planned and with a confidence and ease I hadn’t anticipated. That wasn’t the best bit though, by working with Sarah we delved much deeper, exploring both personal and professional aspects of my life and together we set boundaries and methods that I am now using to ensure my life and business are run in a way that works best for me.’
