"I’ve found coaching with Sandra to be really helpful in helping me make changes in areas I feel I haven’t been doing so well in over the course of many years.

At first I was a little reluctant to commit to weekly sessions and the financial and time commitment required but I decided to go for it and be as all in as I could.

I’m really glad I did. Sandra is lovely and easy to talk to but still pushes me to look a bit deeper. Each session has been different and tailored to what I needed on that day and even thinking about what I actually needed was a positive change for me. I’m 9 sessions in now and have found that each session has built on the last (even when they don’t seem that related) and that I’m even making positive changes even in areas of my life we haven’t touched much on in sessions. I’m pretty sure that is due to the change in the conversation I’m having with myself. All in all I’m feeling a lot more in control of my life and I’m really loving the feelings that brings. When things inevitably come up now that I don’t feel comfortable with or bring up uncomfortable feelings I’m finding it easier to recognise and cope with.

I still have stuff I want to work on – and always will - but I’m positive about the future and really enthused about my ability to make changes (with a little help from coaching when required!). I’d recommend coaching to anyone looking to make a change, small or massive, that is finding it difficult. One session was great but the series of sessions has really exceeded my expectations."

“I am very grateful for having Sandra speak to my school community. Her talk on how to make the most of one's preschool investment by understanding child development was just what we needed. Sandra's easy manner, non-judgmental tone, and deep understanding of the struggles toddler parents face encouraged even my most reserved parents to discuss freely their family situations. The mood remained light even when discussing difficult topics because she has a lovely sense of humor. Sandra also conducted the meeting in such a way that I was able to interject helpful specifics from time to time. It was so natural and easy you would have thought that we had co-developed the talk together. The parent community at Sage is now less burdened and more tight-knit having shared such a deep, almost therapeutic, session with Sandra. I highly encourage you to engage Sandra for your school, leadership, or family needs. You will not regret it.”

"Sandra leads her small groups with a sense of genuine caring for each person in the group.  Her questions are thought-provoking and lead to amazing self-discoveries. After every group meeting, I come away refreshed with renewed focus and glad that I took the time out of my busy day.  It really helps to see problems from other people's perspectives. It is especially helpful to be in a small group of Montessori Directors that understand (and have) the same problems that I do. The confidentiality and intimacy of the group allows for deep sharing, that you won't get in other support groups. Sandra is a very genuine, heart-felt person that makes a daily difference in the lives that she touches by supporting the philosophies of Maria Montessori, Positive psychology and world peace!"

"I founded Montessori Child Development Center almost 40 years ago and am still directing the school. The world has changed so much since I then. The needs of our families are very different and adapting without losing our mission is a challenge. Our staff has met with Sandra twice and the dynamics of interaction with families has been redirected both for parent meetings and conferencing. I love the way she guides us to conclusions without judgement. After so many years of doing things the same way it is very helpful to receive gentle guidance for adjusting our methods of communication. I feel re-energized and hope is restored going forward. I feel blessed to have found Sandra."
