Praise for Post Recovery Coaching
“The hardest thing about recovering from major illness is that nobody seems to understand how much your victory really changed you. But Sarah does.”
“In 2014, I healed severe depression and anxiety through dietary and lifestyle changes. As someone who had been told she would be on multiple medications for the rest of her life, I was ecstatic. I was finding levels of health and happiness that I’d never experienced.
But with that victory came a lot of confusion. In order to heal, I had to completely reshape my life, and I no longer recognized the person staring back at me in the mirror. I had new interests, new priorities, and I was no longer satisfied with my job. Though I was so much happier and healthier, figuring out the “new me” sucked, and I felt alone and isolated.
When I heard about Sarah’s Post-Recovery Coaching, I instantly knew it was what I needed. Nobody in my real life truly understood the transformation I went through, and I was longing to be heard by someone who “got me.” I also wanted help navigating difficult life choices, so I signed up. I didn’t really know what to expect, and to be honest, I was a little nervous!
Four months later, I can say that I’m really glad I did. Sarah has helped me define my true values and step forward in my life with confidence. She’s helped me focus on some big goals, and more importantly, she’s taught me to be gentle with myself — something that’s never been easy.
The hardest thing about recovering from major illness is that nobody seems to understand how much your victory really changed you. But Sarah does, and she will help you make the most of this second chance. Don’t ignore the little voice in your head — if it’s telling you that Post-Recovery Coaching is right for you, it probably is!” – Holly Higgins
“I have also come to a more accepting place of my myself and my skills, especially with my ADD being viewed as a strength and not a hindrance.”
“Coaching with Sarah has helped me realize that taking an alternative route in the work world from high pay and ‘respectable jobs’ is not a crazy choice and, indeed, is one to celebrate and worth pursuing with my head held high. My former job was in a large corporation that was very centred on making money for the company and pleasing the clients regardless of how much it cost the consultants physically and mentally.
With Sarah’s help I am moving in the direction of deciding with my heart instead of my bank account as the primary driver! I have also come to a more accepting place of my myself and my skills, especially with my ADD being viewed as a strength and not a hindrance.”
I was so thrilled when I learned what Sarah’s skills were and was excited to sign up with her. It’s been a very helpful process, aiding in acceptance of my situation, feeling better about the changes in my life, looking at my skills and focusing on what my heart is calling me to do. – Emony Nicholls
“Coaching with Sarah has helped me feel more secure in myself, and has given me a sense of confidence I have never had before.”
“Before I started coaching with Sarah I felt lost. I knew the general direction I wanted to go, but had no idea how I would get there, or what the first steps were. I had spent so much time worrying about the past, I couldn’t even think about what would make me happy.
I had considered coaching in the past, but was unsure about talking to someone about such personal things. I was nervous at first because I was unsure what to expect, but Sarah made me feel totally at ease.
She helped me regain my passions for my life, and helped me figure out how I could bring these into my future career. Coaching with Sarah has helped me feel more secure in myself, and has given me a sense of confidence I have never had before. She has helped me find the courage to be myself, to face fears, and live a more honest life.
After 4 months, I’ve decided to continue working with Sarah, because it has affected my life so positively, and I’m excited to continue growing.” – Emily Stephan
“For the first time in a long time, I felt fully supported in just being me, both by Sarah and by myself.”
“For the first time in a long time, I felt fully supported in just being me, both by Sarah and by myself. I have always known that my family near and far love me, but I also felt they all ‘needed me to be a certain way’ or needed me to be that person I no longer am (or perhaps never even was). In our sessions Sarah did not need me to be anything, and neither did I. It was, and is, very freeing. Coaching with Sarah is giving an amazing gift to yourself.” – Anya Epelbaum
Praise for Values Roadmap Session
“I use my Values Roadmap as a tool when making important decisions plans, moves and so on, to make sure that what I do is in line with my values and therefore truly feels right for ME.” – Sarah Ehsani
“I am pretty introverted and kind of a loner. But through my work with Sarah, I discovered that connection — or being around people who bring me joy — is actually one of my highest values. I would NEVER have guessed this, but since my discovery, I have been able to make some big shifts.
Now, I won’t make decisions without consulting my Values Roadmap. If something isn’t serving my values, it probably isn’t worth my time. The session made it easier to make decisions with confidence, cut the clutter from my life, and really feel at peace with myself.” – Holly Higgins
“I was a little hesitant on finding out about what my values are, especially about being open and getting so personal about it. Luckily Sarah is kind, caring, compassionate, and a wonderful listener! The Values Roadmap Session had a mind-opening impact on me, and I found it to be incredibly liberating and insightful.” – Laura Gray
Praise for Free 30 Minute Sessions
“Working with Sarah has helped so much.”
“Working with Sarah has helped so much. She helped me realize that as a busy, working Mom, I still need to put aside time for myself to decompress and to focus on my mental health to be the best teacher, mom and wife that I can be. Using her suggestions of taking only 10 minutes to myself each night helps me decompress at the end of each day, which is much needed! ” – Meg Staples
“After 30 minutes with Sarah, I had a career growth plan!”
“I’ve been feeling “stuck” in my career for quite a while now. I want to increase my income while playing to my natural strengths. But, I haven’t had enough self-confidence to believe in my natural abilities and passions. With a series of thought-provoking questions, Sarah helped me realize that my answers are within myself. In other words, she didn’t tell me what to do but helped me dig deep within to solve my own problem. Thanks to 30 minutes with Sarah, I now have an actionable and measurable plan to improve my career options and get “unstuck”!” – Jason Dailey
“She helped me instill a sense of purpose and a vision.”
“Sarah is very professional and a fabulous coach. She really had me thinking about why I am painting. As someone recovering from a traumatic brain injury, she helped me instill a sense of purpose and a vision for what my business/hobby should look like in the months to years from now.” – Laura Gray
“She truly gets it, because she’s been there, too!”
“I was really excited to talk to Sarah and eager to tap into her insights, but I was also dreading the session, because I knew it would be challenging. The questions she asked made me realize that how I show up in life can influence how people respond to me. If I am afraid to show people that I am excited about this new chapter in my life (because of fear of rejection), how can I expect them to be excited FOR me? I realized it was silly to expect this, and that I needed to carry myself with different energy. It was very much an “a-ha” moment.
Our discussion allowed me to see things differently, and it gave me the courage to share my authentic self with the people I had been hiding it from. This was huge and now I feel so much lighter. People are already responding to me differently, and I don’t feel so stuck anymore. I would highly recommend coaching services from Sarah. She truly gets it, because she’s been there, too!” – Holly Higgins
