The background:

Since childhood, Sarah has a passion was for riding and competing horses.

The equestrian business that she set up after leaving university, where Sarah practically trained and coached competitors, enabled her to get the best from people though their horses.

Through her own competitive training, Sarah learned how to incorporate visualisation, meditation, body awareness, sports psychology, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and other personal and spiritual development techniques to achieve her own best performance and use these techniques to inspire others. This also sparked in Sarah the desire to study meditation and numerous spiritual philosophies as well as develop further her own intuitive abilities.

Since 2001, when Sarah sold the equestrian business, she has incorporated these spiritual concepts and meditation into the coaching that Sarah has been doing. She has worked with international sports competitors, celebrities, millionaires and successful executives both in the UK, Europe and the Far East as well as people who want to move to the next level of their spiritual development.

Sarah has taught meditation classses for many years, teaching techniques from many different spiritual disciplines. She now bring these strands together and base the work that she does on the principles of A Course In Miracles which she has been studying for many years.

Sarah currently help entrepreneurs and leaders using their Spiritual Intelligence to help them make the most of their Life’s work.
