About Sarah - Wildflower Fire Coaching

The need for change

From being a highflier, I became one of those knackered, frustrated and brittle career women.

I was in my early 40s, having worked for over 20 years in the public sector. From completing my degree and starting my first job at 22, I had spent 3 years gaining a Diploma in Counselling, completed a Post Graduate Diploma, a Master of Public Health qualification, got married, had fertility treatment and two children, navigated co-parenting and part time work while working through a myriad of organisational politics and constant changes. I was shattered and on the verge of shattering.

Take the next step

In search of clarity

Fast forward 8 years and a few bumpy roads in my journey.

Leaving the public sector, setting up and establishing a new business, working as an associate for other businesses, working as an independent consultant, finding new areas of work, initiating and navigating an amicable divorce, becoming a single parent, developing a portfolio career, starting a new relationship and eventually remarrying and using every single last ounce of experience to grow and move forward happily, gracefully and positively.

why work with Sarah?
The courage to take the next step
The start of something wonderful

I set up Wildflower Fire so that I could specialise in the work that I love the most.

Simply, using the counselling and coaching skills and professional and personal experience that I have, to work alongside people, groups and teams to help them become the best version of themselves that they can be.

Supporting women just like myself

Following my navigation out of the public sector and to setting up a successful business of my own, I now help women who are trying to navigate within or out of the public sector.

The experience to supply the right tools

With the right tools, coaching and goals, I know (and am the proof) that you can design a career and life strategy to make an impact on the world around you, your family’s legacy, and your future.

Why Wildflower Fire?

Wildflower Fire is my reminder that whilst fire initially obliterates and destroys, it also clears and nourishes the ground in order to make way for new growth.

Some people see wildflowers and think they are weeds. Look at them more closely and you will see flowers that bloom in unlikely places, flowers that find their way towards the light through tiny cracks, flowers that are simply beautiful, flowers that are resilient enough to emerge from long buried seeds. Wildflowers that just need the right soil conditions in order to burst through into glory. Wildflowers that scatter their seeds on the breeze in order to pollinate new areas.

In my spare time...

When I am not working, I love listening to music, writing, cooking, being with my family, exercising and planting bee friendly flowers. I’m a pop psychology geek who has always loved reading articles and books about what makes people tick. I enjoy painting, writing and being walked by our badly trained labrador Ralph.
