The Shine Package

Is the Shine Package right for you?

The Shine Package is for you if you’re ready to go on a veritable voyage of professional self-discovery!

 You’re fed up of settling for a work life that makes you unhappy. You know your work happiness impacts on your mental health and quite frankly, you deserve better.

You’re ready to invest in yourself and finally get clear on who you are and what you want out of your work life.

You might have an inkling about what your best next steps could be but you’re looking for more confidence and clarity before you make a decision.

This decision might mean completely re-designing your career, making a few tweaks to your current role, working on your mindset or even starting your own business. 

Do any (or all!) of these statements sound familiar?

  • On paper, you’ve had a successful career, but you’ve recently lost your way
  • You’re after more clarity and a confidence boost to help reignite your passion for work
  • You’re feeling stuck, unfulfilled or unappreciated
  • You’ve you lost sight of what you’re great at
  • Most days you feel like you’re ‘going through the motions’
  • You’d love to find that elusive ‘sweet spot’ where your passions, talents and experience collide with a need in the world
  • You might be burnt out and craving more from life outside of work too
  • You know deep down you’re not fulfilling your potential
  • You’re keen to consider new ways to create more happiness in your work life
  • You might even be considering starting your own business

How will it all work?

We’ll get together for 60 mins weekly or bi-weekly at a mutually convenient time. I work with clients all over the world and so usually  hold most of my 1:1 sessions via Zoom. I hope to start meeting clients who are local to me in London or Buckinghamshire face-to-face again in the not too distant future! I’m also a big believer in the power of ‘walking coaching’ and getting out in nature whenever possible.

We’ll then work through the above session plan together. Although the programme is structured around my signature S.H.I.N.E© coaching framework, the content of your sessions will be entirely tailored to you and your personal career story and mindset needs.

I’ll send you a link so that you can book in each of your sessions at a time that works best for you. Before each of our sessions together, you’ll receive a comprehensive workbook packed with coaching reflections and a little theory (grounded in positive psychology and neuroscience) to help you make the most of our time together.

You’ll have office hours email access to me for the 4 month duration of your time with me and a follow-up 30 minute check-in call up to a month after your final session.

All my 1:1 career coaching packages include lifetime access to my career coaching and personal development membership club, The Shine Collective, (worth nearly £600 per year) so you’ll be working happy in no time!

You’ll also receive a stunning Work Happy Journal where you can keep all your session notes, coaching reflections and work happiness plans.

What do people say about this package?

Felicity Haythorn
“Last week, I finished four months of careers coaching with a truly fantastic woman, Sarah Clarke of Shine Brighter Consulting. After her help I now feel fearless, exuberant, flying. I now have clarity on my values, strengths that I didn’t even know I had and an artillery of redefined skills and superpowers at my disposal. I have so much more confidence in myself and my abilities and, although I’ve so much work left to do, I know I can bloody well do it. So a huge THANK YOU, Sarah - you have indeed made me shine brighter!"

"The 1:1 SHINE programme with Sarah was such a positive experience and helped me make some huge changes in my business and personal life. Sarah is incredibly warm and skilfully guided me on a personal journey to take more control over my career. I was stuck in a rut, feeling low and unable to see a way forward. I now know my strengths and where to focus my time and energy in order to reach my goals. I would recommend Sarah and the 1:1 sessions to anyone.”
Claire Gillespie
Creator & Founder - Oglee Poglee
“Thank you so so much Sarah, the growth of Gem and I in the past weeks is so tangible (nose is starting to fizz on opening line). I've taken great pleasure in telling my husband over supper not just how fabulous you and the Shine Brighter programme are, but why you're so fabulous - firstly your warmth & smile that are quite frankly contagious, your support and empathy, the way you listen without judgement, and then to top if all off you whop (2 p's?) out the cleverest of facts and rationale so we can even understand the whole shebang. It's been such a journey. Tonic is certainly all the shinier for your much-valued time and guidance. Because of you, instead of being scared of the big wide world, we're now ready for it."

"My head was all over the place. I felt a little lost. I'd lost my sense of purpose after giving up my career. I loved being mum and wife...but yearned for a purpose in addition to those things, separate from those things. Something for me, that would help me but also help others! That gave me a sense of satisfaction. That’s when I found you! I had some ideas about what I wanted to create but hadn’t formalised anything. You helped me so much. You helped boost my confidence at a time when I needed it more than you’ll ever know. You made me believe my idea had legs and could be great! "
Karen Wyn Griffith
Founder - The Happy Me PT
"The help, support and guidance you’ve given me to help unpick the massively confusing state of head / career / what it is I am good at / what it is I want to do, has been just fantastic. Thank you SO much."
Lou Prior
Founder & PR Director - Prior PR
"I engaged Sarah for some coaching recently and it has proved to be even more inspiring, helpful and useful than I could have imagined. Sarah is so wonderful at getting you to focus upon your strengths and I feel that with her help I will find the thing I truly want to do with my career (advice I should’ve had years ago!). I would thoroughly recommend her kind, shrewd and intelligent advice to anyone."

"Back at work after my second maternity leave and I felt fed-up. I was looking for something new but didn’t have a clue where to start. Sarah was fantastic. Our sessions gave me clarity on what I enjoy and what I prefer to avoid in the workplace. They also gave me language to clearly articulate my ‘ideal role’ and the confidence to approach my employer to see if this is something that they would be willing to offer me (before I started to look elsewhere). They were, and they have! I’d highly recommend Sarah’s coaching to anyone in a similar position.”
Susan Clark
Audit Director
"Working with Sarah was a real joy and I looked forward to all of our [1:1] sessions together. Before we started I was confused about what I should be doing with my career, couldn't really pinpoint what I was good at and had had my confidence knocked by a few bad clients. However, throughout Sarah's SHINE program, I managed to unscramble what interests me, the work I enjoy, and what I am good at. HOORAY! Identifying my values and strengths and where I should be focusing my energies, has really spurred me to not settle for work that doesn't align with me or bring me happiness. I would highly recommend Sarah!"
Quetta Haythorn
Head of Operations - Hatch xyz
"Sarah is fantastic at helping you to understand more about what you're naturally good at, what your strengths are and how you can focus on those areas to excel. I've loved working with Sarah - her warm and encouraging style, as well as her breadth of knowledge and experience, have made working with her really enjoyable. If you want support to remind you of what you're best at and the motivation to go for it, I'd highly recommend Sarah."
Sam Sturrock
On a career break
"I had a series of one-to-one sessions with Sarah and found them so helpful in understanding my skills, values and strengths. It was just what I needed after an extended maternity leave, before trying to get back into the workplace (in the middle of a pandemic!). I now have a much clearer idea of what I want, and what roles I should be going for. I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for some career coaching - she's so easy to talk to and insightful.

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 hundreds of talented women reconnect with their unique strengths, values and confidence; allowing them to unlock their potential and shine brighter in their work lives.

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 starting my own career and leadership coaching business, I held various senior HR leadership positions within several fast-paced and dynamic organisations in the tech start up and online world including, Yahoo!, The Digital Property Group (now Zoopla) and the online insurer, Simply Business; 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!
