Although based in Hampshire, we work nationally and internationally. We are happy to travel to client locations for in-person coaching and workshops, and we offer virtual coaching and workshops as well.

We deliver coaching in the way that suits our clients best – whether in-person, virtual or a hybrid approach.

Costs vary depending on the number of sessions, location, other resources required. Please contact us to find out more. 
We recommend a minimum of six coaching sessions. However, we appreciate that it’s a big investment and we are happy to offer clients one or two sessions, initially, to experience the benefits of coaching.

Sarah Reynolds has a business background (ACA and CTA-trained accountant) and has been a qualified executive coach for 8 years. Sarah is a PCC level coach (ICF) and has over 1000 hours of experience.  Sarah is also a licensed practitioner with Insights Discovery and uses Insights extensively in coaching and workshops.

Coaching is more about you than the coach – have a chat with us about your objectives and we will recommend the best approach. As coaches we work with what arises during each coaching session and are experienced in a very broad range of issues.

When working in an organisational setting, we make sure everyone - the organisational sponsor, the coachee and ourselves as coach - is in agreement as to the purpose and objectives of the coaching engagement. We also ensure that everyone understands the confidentiality of the coach-client relationship with respect to the individual being coached. As Professional Certified Coaches with the International Coach Federation we implement fully their Code of Ethics.  As a result, we  build trusted relationships with both the organisation and our individual coaching clients.

Although LifeForward’s executive coaching is business-focused, the coaching includes anything that our client brings to the table. By its nature, coaching may cover anything that affects thinking and behaviour. It may include: overall wellbeing; commitments that absorb time and energy outside work (eg family, charitable roles, sport, hobbies and so on); significant life changes such as personal relationships or business secondments; and the impact of personal decisions on work, or vice versa.

Therefore, there is no clear line between executive coaching and life coaching. As coaches, we work with what arises during the sessions and our coaching is tailor-made to individual needs.

Recognising that a significant number of international assignments do not achieve their objectives, often resulting in the assignee departing from an organisation, LifeForward offers a specific coaching programme to support assignees and the needs of the business at all stages of the international assignment. We work with both the individual and the organisation before the assignment starts, on arrival, during the secondment overseas and also when preparing to return home. We focus on clear goals and objectives, personal impact and preparation, cultural awareness and many other aspects which may be critical to success.
