What My Clients Say

One of the best thing about being a Coach is the opportunity I get to work  with interesting people who want to enjoy life and achieve great things –  often exceeding their own expectations.  All of my clients inspire me on a daily basis.  Thank you to the following people for sharing their experience of working with me.

‘People often forget to identify with themselves who they actually are.  This experience has taught me to look and search inwards to allow me to understand and take control of my life whilst creating the reality I desire.  I’d describe Sandie as a Reassuring, Inspirational and Caring person.’

~ A. Fisher, Manchester

I found this [career discovery coaching] a very useful and enjoyable experience. I only wish I had done this before I spent thousands on my education. I recommend Sandie’s help to anyone who is serious about understanding and finding work they will enjoy. 

~ Jason Miller.

Working with Sandie has been an incredibly helpful experience. Our sessions not only introduced me to a host of new ideas and concepts to boost self confidence & advance my career, but also helped resolve my own dissatisfaction with areas of my life – and to move on from it. Her patient, supportive and above all friendly attitude benefited me greatly, and I would heartily recommend her services to anyone in need of life coaching.  

~ A.R.Toms.

When I first spoke to Sandie I was generally dissatisfied with many aspects of my life.  It was difficult to establish what area to focus on first as all areas seemed to need attention.  Sandie was very patient in understand my concerns with each area of my life.  I found her questioning very clever and thought provoking. Her listening skills were excellent and we successfully managed to figure out what areas needed looking at as priority. I found the sessions very interesting and useful in actually getting me to spend time thinking about me.  I now feel a lot less stressed out about things in general.  I have made some really positive steps towards improvement and have learnt some useful techniques to assist me in continuing to develop my life for the better. Thank you Sandie.’   

~ Karen, Personal Assistant, Cambridge. Coached on creating and maintaining Peace of Mind.


“Before meeting Sandie I wanted significant improvements in many areas of my life. Only 2 months ago life was overwhelming and I had no idea how to improve it myself or which way to turn. I was immediately shown how to select the areas of most importance to me by using simple techniques and quickly became aware of my personality, my needs, my interests and my desires, and soon I discovered what makes me tick in terms of career and interests, and my ideal career became very clear. I am now training and doing voluntary work in order to gain the skills and experience needed to follow my dream!!!

It is great to now have clarity of thought and a clear vision of my ultimate goal. I am much more confident about myself, and my future, and am already well on my way to getting where I want to be.  A big thank you to you, Sandie!”

–  Jo, Stockport. Coached on finding her true calling and turning it into her new career.


‘I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the coaching sessions and how much I have learnt from them. You’ve given me such valuable skills that I’ll have for the rest of my life and I really can’t thank you enough for that. From the moment that I read your website I felt as though I would be able to connect with you and that certainly proved to be correct. I think that everyone should have a Sandie in their life. I think you’re absolutely fantastic!’

~ N.T. Sheffield.


‘I am very grateful for Sandie’s professionalism and dedication to coaching me.  My life has definitely turned around for the better as I now have a new partner and a new job!  I can’t thank you enough Sandie!’  

~ Debbie, Executive PA, Oxford.  Coached on Relationships and Career.


“I was struggling in my interviews mainly due to nerves. This was having a knock on effect on what I was saying and how I was saying it. I decided to get help, and Sandie was able to take me on at short notice. Even after the initial session, I found my self-confidence increasing and learnt effective tips for the delivery of my answers. I found it incredibly easy to connect with Sandie and it was no coincidence that I later got a job offer from an Investment Bank. I would highly recommend her help.”

~ I.K., Economics & Finance Graduate, Manchester. Coached on Communication & Interview Techniques.


‘Just like to say thank you so much for guiding me in the right direction.  I had become very dissatisfied with my life!  And after coming to see you for 6 weeks I now feel I have taken control again and I’m heading down the right path.’

~ A. Senior, High Peak,  Derbyshire.


‘Dear Sandie, thank you so much for all support, you have opened my eyes to new possibilities and given me the confidence to get  out there and achieve my goals. Not only have you helped me with my career; you have also helped me move forward with my personal life. I am so full of energy, drive and enthusiasm now that I know I will succeed at both – I already am! Thanks again for all your help.’  

~ Chris, Manchester.  Coached on setting up a small business.


‘I had no idea what I was letting myself in for when I started my journey with Life Coaching, but, with the supportive and friendly manner that Sandie has, I soon found that this was helping me reorganise my life.  The gentle prodding and patient approach that was taken worked for me and I feel that this has been a sound investment which is helping me regain my life.  This experience was the first time anyone brought home to me that it was OK to spend time on me!’ 

~ Alan, Derbyshire


‘If you’re looking for a coach, but maybe you’re a bit unsure, my advice would be to give Sandie a call, you won’t regret it. I always recommend High peak Life Coaching to anyone looking to move forward with their life as my experience with Sandie has most definitely helped me do just that.  Sandie, I would like to wish you the very best of luck with your future and thank you again for all your help, support and continued enthusiasm.’

~ Lauren MacDonald,  NHS Nurse, Derbyshire.


‘I have worked with Sandie for a couple of months as a client.  She forms an instant rapport and has a business like approach that I value.  She is a great listener and knows when to talk and when to remain silent.  I look forward to my coaching sessions with Sandie.  She helps me to increase my awareness of options and to decide on my best option.  She is punctual and I feel I have her constant attention.  I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone who would like a supportive friend to help them work through almost any issue.  She is personable with high integrity and has helped me achieve some great results.’

~ Peter Hirst,  Small Business Coach, Middlewich.

~ Eva, Greater Manchester.


‘Many, many thanks for a great 2010.  You’ve helped me see my life in a much more positive light.  I look forward to our continued successes in the year 2011.  Big Big Hugs.’ 

~ Kris, London.


‘I have never experienced life coaching before and at the first session the whole process was positioned very clearly. I found the sessions to be really helpful and Sandie very supportive in helping me to set goals and work towards them. I definately benefitted from the experience and would seek further coaching in the future with Sandie should I feel I need further support. Many thanks.’

~ Rachel, HR Manager, Manchester.


‘A very interesting and useful experience. Sandie really helped me to untangle the desperate muddle I was in and kept me focused on the key issues that were causing me problems.’

~ Beatrice, Derbyshire.


I have been working on my personal growth for many years and lately I have focused on de-stressing, my personal effectiveness and getting rid of a particular undermining mindset. I’m experiencing a lot of considerable changes in my life but Sandie is gifted at understanding the exact essence of what I am experiencing.  Her approach was exactly right for me and fitted me inside out, as well as the NLP exercises she chose to use with me.  I was impressed how far we got in 6 sessions. Some things just clicked and have been working for me ever since.  I will call on her skills again when I feel the need for some extra support.’

~ Esther, 46, UK.
