Get out of your comfort zone. Actually, don’t!

Get out of your comfort zone. No!!! Don’t! It’s a terrible idea, especially the way in which this insidious suggestion is suddenly everywhere we look.

Central to Sorrel’s coaching philosophy is that given the space and opportunity people can think much better for themselves than they might initially assume – her role is to enable them to do their best quality thinking and support them to develop that thinking into learning and action.

Coaching for professional development

Sorrel takes a bespoke and personal approach to all her coaching. Together you will create a unique programme to address your unique challenges and opportunities.

Coaching skills and development

Sorrel supports people from a wide range of sectors to develop their coaching skills. She also provides facilitation to help organisations solve their thinking conundrums, always taking a coaching approach.

Supporting working parents

Sorrel does not assume that being a parent impacts everyone in the same way, however, she does assume that becoming a parent impacts everyone in some way.

What people say

  • “Oh my gosh. I feel like my spotlight was the most intense 25 minutes I am going to have all week/month. You helped me face up to my reality today. It’s so weird. I have been walking round in a fog of ‘what I havent done’ all year and actually I have been doing it all along. I am a business owner on a journey… Thank you for helping me clarify…”

    Alexena Collins - Group Coaching
  • “I recently worked with Sorrel for help in thinking through some specific areas of my professional development and professional life. Throughout the coaching, Sorrel was focused, supportive, challenging, clear and flexible. She helped me get clarity on the issues I was facing and identify solutions, strategies and strengths that I could use to address them. It was a great experience!”

    Emily Nevins, Campaigns Director at Amnesty International – 1:1 Coaching
  • “Coaching with Sorrel was a very interesting journey of exploring my needs and my wishes and helped me have techniques and tools to deal with situations. It’s a time you rarely take yourself to think about where you are going and Sorrel is a very good at pulling things out of you and making you think. As a result I’m clearer about what I want and what will work for me.”

    Sophie Aroutcheff – 1:1 Coaching
  • “All coaches should see a coach, every now and then. I was feeling a bit ‘stuck’ and unsure what I needed to do in order to move forward with my coaching career. I had a couple of sessions with Sorrel and she helped me to untangle my thoughts as well as to take a different, more positive, perspective on what I have achieved so far and what I have to offer. Sorrel is a great coach. It was worth every penny and I am now enacting the strategy she helped me to devise and it’s all going well! Thanks, Sorrel (I will probably be back).”

    Louise Rodgers, Eidyia Ltd, Director – 1:1 Coaching
  • “Sorrel and I have worked on 3 key areas: Confidence, Focus and Leadership. I wanted to understand how others saw me professionally, how I might engage more effectively with them and to put an action plan in place for future engagement. The process has been engaging, challenging, fun and extremely helpful to me. Sorrel is focused, engaging and skilled at exploring areas which are often difficult or challenging within a safe environment. I would highly recommend Sorrel.”

    Safeguarding Manager, Guide Dogs for the Blind – 1:1 Coaching
  • “Sorrel was very good at helping me to reframe things enabling me to see obstacles differently therefore being able to approach challenges and situations constructively. Sorrel’s coaching style is very supportive and effective and I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about making changes in their lives.”

    Film & TV Actress – 1:1 Coaching
  • “I first worked with Sorrel as a coach in 2015. She is warm, engaging and has a unique ability to help clarify my thinking. Sorrel really listens and uses her intelligence to help me be the best I can be. Her coaching style is one where I feel at the centre of her attention with a clear eyed focus on how I can understand myself and my environment better. I look forward to this ongoing journey.”
