Designed To Encourage and Empower Small Business Owners
I’d just like to congratulate Sandra on all the hard work she has put into developing her course. It is well-structured and designed to encourage & empower small businesses owners to thrive & to love what they do. Her passion to share her knowledge and expertise is evident from the presentation, material & resources provided in each module.
I wish Sandra every success with this Programme & would certainly have no hesitation about recommending it to colleagues & friends. I feel they will benefit from the opportunity to reflect, redefine and create their business into one they will learn to love.

Chance to think about what it means to have an actual business vs an expensive hobby
“I’ve had the chance to think about my business from different perspectives such how it ‘chimes’ with my values & initial motivation; the skills & knowledge you need to run a successful business; what it means to have an actual business –v- an expensive hobby.”
An inspirational and motivational business coach
“Sandra has been an inspirational and motivational business coach, from the very first session she was professional and came armed with enthusiasm.
I noticed a shift in my motivation and progression towards my goals, I wanted to achieve. Every week Sandra would push me to think deep and explore possible avenues I had not considered and open new doors.
Sandra is an exceptional business coach and she has the tools to develop the new business professional. I found her programme professional, beneficial and easy to use. These tasks kept me thinking before and after each session.
She is a wealth of knowledge and with the added coaching skills she is a business rocket that any person or company needs. I found coaching with Sandra a benefit in my personal life and developing my business. I am excited to work with Sandra again in the future.
Thank you for all your time and support and always believing in me.”
Easy going style… yet Steadfast
“I found the Small Business coaching sessions with Sandra very helpful.
I run a small and unique business that requires a high level of client confidentiality and sensitivity and as such a very different approach to business development. Working with Sandra helped me to identify where my business can benefit from mainstream tools, and where I need to look for new creative ways to attract new customers and promote the business.
Business coaching with Sandra was very practical and inspirational. I found myself during and after each session more engaged with why I am doing the work that I do, and what I can do to progress with it. Acknowledging small achievements as well as big ones was very valuable too. Sandra encouraged me along the way, and for that, I am very grateful.
Sandra has a very easy going style, yet she is steadfast and works with a high level of integrity. She is very resourceful and knowledgeable and I would recommend her as a coach to anyone.
Thank you, Sandra, for everything!”
“I thought I’d get a few new ideas to help grow my business, but mainly I expected the Programme to cover things I already knew so I would just be consolidating the knowledge & skills I’d learnt elsewhere. I soon found out it was much much more involved & I’ve gained so much more than that!”
Acknowledged My Values and Helped Me to Explore Options
“I would highly recommend Sandra as a coach. It was a pleasure working with her. She really helped me unlock my personal potential and helped me to move my business forwards In terms of digital marketing. When I first met Sandra, I did not know how to market my business but after a series of six coaching sessions, I was more confident and had more knowledge about marketing.
Sandra really helped me to utilise digital marketing tools such as Facebook, and Twitter to market my company. As a result, I have now got a Facebook page and a Twitter page. She even worked with me and showed me how to schedule these feeds so that I could have more of a work/life balance. I am now tweeting every day without having to physically do it and my Facebook page ‘likes’ are growing on a daily basis.
Sandra helped me to find time in my busy schedule to write web and leaflet content for my business. She took into account what I had to do on a daily basis and helped me to create time.
Sandra acknowledged my values and helped me to explore options to move my business forward. She helped me to see my strengths and work on areas of development. She really smashed my limiting beliefs to the core so that I could start the journey of becoming a truly great businesswoman.
Sandra helped me to establish clear and smart goals to create clarity. Sandra is positive and professional and I would recommend her services.
Thank you, Sandra.”

A Very Supportive Coach
“Sandra has been a very supportive coach. She has listened to my needs and helped me to form well thought out goals for each session. She would not let me get away with something vague. I had a clear idea of where I was headed and how I would get there. She explored my reality and took me outside my normal thinking of options. We found some that I had never thought of before with a challenge I have had for a while. Her use of silence was very good. I was able to sit with myself and actually think about things.
Sandra was my first coach and I will never forget her. She has helped me on my path to setting goals and achieving them.
I would not hesitate to use her again.
Thank you, Sandra.”

A good ability to put you at your ease
“I’ve found Sandra’s personal approach and professional manner, very enabling and reassuring – she has a good ability to put you at your ease and displays a genuine interest, encouraging trust and confidence.
Sandra helped me work through a number of goals and outcomes, supporting me when I was stuck to explore those issues and arrive at tangibles and clear focused outcomes.
I have benefited from my coaching sessions with Sandra, which has helped me clarify my thinking and move on from previous ’stuck’ issues – she displays and puts into practice, many strengths and skills of a good coach.”

Leaves me reflecting on my goals and actions days after the session
“Sandra has been a fantastic coach for me and I have learned so much from her.
She is a confident and intelligent coach, who understands the importance of active listening to help understand my motivations, and higher purpose of wanting to achieve certain goals.
She was able to help me overcome obstacles that were sticking points in my life and get me to look at an issue from a different perspective.
Sandra’s style is one that leaves me reflecting on my goals and action points days after the session.”

“I have more clarity about what I’m good at doing i.e. helping people find solutions to reduce stress, increase well-being and build resilience in their personal and work life. I’m more focused on creating business activities, my USP & my strengths.”
Gave me an insight into concrete areas for development
“My greatest achievement through the period of this programme is the refining and elaboration of my vision for my life and business; the clarification and reinforcement of what is important to me about my transitioning into coaching and personal development.
Secondly, it is the blunt reality check of how much I need to learn as I set up my own business.
It is an excellent programme and for one at the starting line, it gave me an insight into concrete areas for development for me which would help as I get round to planning my learning and developing the business side of things…”
