about-us

‘WHY COACHING PSYCHOLOGY?’

That is the first question people ask me after a highly successful and exciting career as a psychologist. Why move into coaching. It is simple really. After 16 years, 7,574 individual clients and approximately 75,740 hours delivering professional support to people, I realised that the majority of what I do is coaching.

'Building peoples self-development, awareness, skill level and insight up to a point that they can become their most successful self.’

Now, don’t get me wrong, pure psychological treatment is a lot different than coaching, but once the treatment ends, people still need to know how to apply those new skills and self-development in the real world.

‘That’s where I thrive. Coaching you into improving and creating a sustainable difference in your life.’

Moving away from pure psychology allows us to experience different levels of support and challenges, as you own and become accountable for your knowledge. It’s like we are running the relay of life and I am passing you an emotional intelligence baton; off you go to win the race of a successful and happy life, with me cheering you on!

Most clients, because of my formalised training, see my style similar to the growing trend in business of a psychologist-coach who can explore resistance and assist mental health issues as well as coaching skills to drive you forward, challenge your status quo and develop sustainable ways to achieve.

My maturity, long history of experience in the field and as a business owner assure my clients of the right service and professionalism needed to explore, develop and create a path forward, personally and professionally.

‘WHAT IS COACHING PSYCHOLOGY?’

Coaching is not just about motivation and goal setting. The most effective outcomes I use, blend psychology and coaching to tackle entrenched patterns and perspectives that limit potential and communication skills.

In this way, the ethical and scientific side of psychology enhances the personalised and individual coaching needs of my clients.

What I deliver is an eclectic blend of:

  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Solution Focused
  • Mode and Transactional Theory
  • SMART Management
  • Personality and Human Need Assessments
  • Human Skills (creativity, courage, emotional intelligence and vulnerability)
about-us

I bring the latest ideas (think Brene Brown, Susan David) and theories and research from outliers and current leaders in human skills, coaching and psychology. I apply assessments and tools as required.

My clients report they succeed by my use of evidence-based research and knowledge combined with a warm, easy going, but challenging style to resolve hurdles, develop goals and strategies, change, develop and to achieve.

Another question you may have is,

‘WHY SARAH GODFREY?’

Good question! Clients have engaged in my coaching and professional development as part of their need to manage stress or anxiety, self-development, leadership, relationships, communication, career transition or cultural change in workplaces.

But that is not enough. Always check your coaches’ credentials. Unlike many, I have full qualifications in psychology and as such, am bound to strict codes of conduct, ethics, privacy and confidentiality. I bring these principles to my coaching, (although coaching is a highly unregulated field). More than that I have 16 years in the helping people be their best, understand the problem and developing how to move on and build their lives. That’s a lot of experience at my fingertips to help you.
