The pain of loss.
The long-lasting impact of trauma.
The disappointment of broken relationships.
The frustration of health problems.
The challenges and joys of parenting.
The struggle of discontentment.
The battle for self-belief.
The strain of anxiety and daily life decisions.

Professionally and personally great at mastering the arts of life coaching and advising in a structured and forward thinking manner- ultimately making her a great listener. Sandie helped me when I was in a tough place and drew the best out of me, solved my insecurities and motivated me to be who I am today.

Zee, Global Training & Change Specialist
Someone once said, ‘the one consistent in your life is change’. We can’t avoid it but we often don’t welcome it either.
We all have the resources within us to cope with life and feel calm, content, and in control. Sometimes we just need someone to help us see them. Rather than becoming a victim of circumstance, I have learned to face my challenges head on and allow them to shape me for the better. Some of my toughest times have produced precious memories and the best life learning, including the coping strategies I still use today.
My desire to work with people has influenced my career from the get-go and all my work experience has fed into my ability as a coach and trainer. I live amongst a farming community and have recently started volunteering as a case worker for the Farming Community Network (FCN).
My first job was working within the NHS in a London hospital. I worked in the special care baby unit and then moved on to an inner city council day nursery. I then moved up north becoming the deputy matron of a private day nursery. We moved as a family down south where I took time out to bring up my children. During this time I ran playgroups and volunteered within the local community helping people and children in various ways.
When I returned to the workplace it was with Marks and Spencer, where I progressed from the sales floor to management. From there I worked for a small family environment nappy company as a sales and customer service manager. One of my many tasks was to work with the local hospitals within the maternity unit, speaking at antenatal classes as well as visiting the wards.
Following this I had management roles within Aviva and then The London Mint. Within these roles I mentored, coached, and trained my teams. At London Mint I also worked as a mediator, helping different departments to work more closely together. After several years, I reflected on my strengths and passions and decided to become a freelance coach and trainer.
