Why now is the time...
Over the last 12 months, COVID has shone a spotlight on what really matters in life. Maybe you’ve come to the realisation that there’s more to this one precious life than doing work that makes you unhappy or, worse still, unwell.
Particularly if that work is taking you needlessly away from your loved ones or having an adverse effect on your mental health. No job is worth that.
With the boundaries between work and life becoming increasingly blurred, burnout is rife. Things have to change.
If you’re fed up of letting your career ‘happen to you’, or worse still, letting others control your professional destiny, now is the perfect time to reclaim and re-design your work life. On your terms.
Using my signature SHINE © work happiness coaching framework, I’ll show you how to design your very own personalised Work Happiness Blueprint © so you can design a career or business that aligns completely with your authentic personality and purpose; whilst nourishing the non-work part of your life.
1:1 career coaching is for you if you're:
- Feeling stuck, lost or unfulfilled
- Lacking confidence in your skills & value

- Wary of experiencing burnout again

- Looking for something ‘new’ but don’t know what
- Keen to do work that has more meaning

Whether you want to re-design your career or explore the possibility of working for yourself, my 1:1 S.H.I.N.E career coaching programmes will help you find confidence & clarity to take the best next steps for you.

All my S.H.I.N.E© 1:1 career coaching programmes are grounded in positive psychology and neuroscience to help you get real clarity and confidence in who you are, what makes you tick, what your unique value is and what you truly want from your work life.
You’ll discover exactly what you want and need and the exact conditions you’ll need to create in order to enjoy a happier, more successful work life. All on your terms.
I devised my signature S.H.I.N.E© Coaching Framework back in 2017 (if I’m honest – for selfish reasons!) to get myself out of my own sizeable post-redundancy career rut, after working for over 15 years in employee development and engagement.
And I’m really happy to say that it’s helped not only me, but well over 150 women (and a few men!) create more happiness and success in their work lives too.
Each letter of S.H.I.N.E stands for a different phase of the coaching programme that will take you on a voyage of personal and professional self-discovery.

Why work with me?
I’m Sarah Clarke. Mum, wife, optimist and self-confessed personal and career development geek.
I’m on a mission to help talented women unlock their potential and find more happiness at work, by showing them how to design their best work lives – on their terms.
I’ve worked in the fields of employee happiness and development for nearly 2 decades and am fascinated by – and incredibly passionate about – the professional potential of women in particular.
I left the corporate world of employee engagement and development in 2016 and went freelance. I then set up my own career and leadership development coaching business in March 2018.
Since then I have helped over 150 talented women reconnect with their unique strengths, values and confidence; allowing them to unlock their potential and shine brighter in their careers and businesses.
My profound interest in personalities and human potential was confirmed when I qualified as a strengths and performance coach over a decade ago.
I’m also certified to conduct MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator), Hogan’s Leadership Forecast Series and Gallup’s CliftonStrengths psychometric assessments which I use throughout my coaching practise.
My approach is informed by positive psychology and neuroscience insights.
Before becoming a freelance career and leadership coach, I worked at several fast-paced and dynamic organisations, each one with their own unique and vibrant culture. All of these companies epitomise innovation, passion and creativity and these values have helped shape my own work philosophy.
Originally from Nottingham, I now live in Buckinghamshire with my husband, two young daughters and cat!
