She was supportive and probing when necessary and asked very challenging questions to help me work through what I was thinking. I started our coaching relationship with a great sense of frustration and inertia, and Sarah helped to guide me through that sense of uncertainty and gave me a sense of what I needed to focus on to find a direction. Once I started my new role, I found myself incredibly busy and it was hard for me to find the time to attend coaching sessions – Sarah was incredibly patient and flexible, in terms of arranging sessions and re-arranging, and changing venues when necessary to accommodate sessions"
