Feedback is more than a gift

Sarah is an excellent coach that helped me to get over myself. I am so much happier and can even say guilt free. I am finding more success & satisfaction at work and in family life. Would I recommend Sarah as your Catalyst Coach? It’s a YES from me.

Sonia SNZ

Since working with Sarah I can truly say I have more of what I really want. I had never put myself as a priority. With my renewed practices I am happier, healthier and enjoying life with more energy, confidence & know how. Sarah makes it light when it gets tough & her deep care got me through the days when I felt like jacking it in. This has been an amazing adventure.

Lara BNZ

Sarah has been an amazing coach who helped me find clarity and focus.. My new habits & daily rituals have helped me to know and love myself as a priority. I was really taken by the caring and nurturing approach as well as the fun we had through the adventure. Would I recommend Sarah? Yes , unreservedly, her programmes are great.

Tara GSydney OZ

Working with Sarah set me free from my negative self-talk. I was stuck in a deep rut in my work and personal life so I defaulted to travel in an attempt to try and work it out for myself. Working with Sarah helped me to find the clarity and rebuild my confidence. I have discovered more than I ever thought was possible - My best investment of 2017.

Ingrid HProject Manager & Engineer | Germany

I wasted 8 years in a state of running on empty using obsessive exercise & work to mask my depression. I wore a mask to the world. Inside I was collapsing. Owning my physical & mental wellness helped me to understand why I was stuck. As my Coach, Sarah was 100% supportive.
I built confidence to work out what i needed to do. The weekly accountability made the difference between falling over & keeping going. NON-truth : Us blokes are supposed to work it out. TRUTH : I couldn't on my own. I have now & it's a game-changer. More than thankful.
