Life & Career Coaching for people who don't know where to begin
Have you ever really known what you want to do?
Career coaching can help you to find out through a process of answering unique questions that break through repetitive
thought patterns and encourage a fresh perspective.
I ask questions so that you can deeply explore and discover your answers.
I believe that movement outdoors helps ideas and conversations flow.
Creative questions and exercises that encourage exploration & expression.
We will make room for freedom of thought & playfulness.
I want to make career coaching more affordable and accessible to a wider range of people, including anyone who is unemployed or with financial challenges.
If my prices are unaffordable for you but you would like to book a session with me, please do still request one and I will do my very best to make it happen.
As a career coach I mostly work with people who want a complete change, not just in their work but also their lifestyle. Coaching is questions-based rather than advice-based. I ask questions that will move and shift your answers beyond anything that you have experienced before.
My approach to coaching is the same as my approach to life
- curious, playful, and positive.
The experiences we have together can be truly life-changing, simply through spending time outside and having great conversations.
"I had a head full of uncertainty and maybe's. Too many ideas and not enough direction so felt it was the right opportunity to speak to somebody. I had initially considered a life coach, but then I heard (completely by random) Sarah's Podcast interview with Simon Stokes. A business owner and instructor of Peak Outdoors. As a Trainee Mountain Leader I guess I was drawn in by Simon's certainty of his direction in that interview as it mimicked my plan so far but was drawn to "who is About the Adventure?" and could she chat to me about my career change/diversity into the Outdoor Industry.
I met Sarah in Edale and we spent most of the morning and into late lunchtime questioning the why's, the what's, the limiting beliefs and seeking some clarity to break down my indecisions and direction to change. It clicked a couple of hours into the walk over a mug of tea. Awesome! Why hadn't I seen that? - Cue a lightbulb lighting up Kinder Plateau.
Sarah really has a unique direction with her coaching. Who doesn't love to walk and chat and be made a brew on the hill! Bonus! The most informal setting, being relaxed, surrounded by amazing views (well, we were on our day. I know it gets murky up here) takes away any complexity in helping you to find a little bit of click and then the ideas really start to flow.
I left with a direction I hadn't considered, people to contact further and an imminent plan to get more accountable. I had a great day and will follow up with Sarah in the future and book again with her as there's a bit to move forwards with. She's great company and makes a fab flask of tea! Thanks Sarah!"

About Sarah Lister
I think that our careers are essentially about how we choose to spend our time.
After Uni I went with the city desk job route but after ten years of commuting and wishing I was somewhere else, I knew that I wanted a total change. I felt a strong desire to start making new choices about how to spend my time.
I felt really lost at first because I had never seriously considered what I wanted my career to be. It felt overwhelming to suddenly be answering those questions on my own.
I found the endless job searching and CV updates really uninspiring, so I began to explore how else I could discover a meaningful career path for myself.
That was the point that I discovered coaching and started to explore a whole new way of life for myself. Talking to excellent coaches helped me to start finding my answers rather than constantly saying to myself "I don't know".
As coaching had such a strong and effective impact for me, I was drawn towards learning the skills and helping others.
After originally completing my training and starting my coaching work in London, I now live in the Peak District where I offer coaching sessions out in the valleys and hills. I have found that this environment works really well for coaching.
I am a qualified Hill and Moorland Leader through the Mountain Training scheme and I have a first aid certificate which is renewed every three years.
