The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives.
I believe that human connection has transformative power in all aspects of our lives.
Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active Model, it begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise.
Mindfulness is knowing what is happening, while it is happening, without preference, without judgement, with acceptance.

Like most people, I have been through difficult experiences of adversity at different times of my life. I realised that these challenging events can affect everyone at one time or another, yet we aren't equipped with the capabilities, skills and strategies to deal with them. I decided I wanted to contribute and do something meaningful and with purpose, to learn the right skills and help people to overcome their adversity, strengthen their resilience, to thrive and flourish.
It is through this insight which led me to coaching and counselling as a way to connect with others. I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment in which to explore and discuss personal and professional concerns. My ultimate purpose is to help my clients get in touch with what they really want and help make it happen for themselves, individually and together as a couple.
Relationships are hard, especially when you come into difficulty. Together we explore how our relationships are created, look at past experiences, learn how to manage the differences and find ways we can enjoy investing in our relationship. Together we can strengthen your ability to face challenges, create new ways to communicate with each other and find a path to move forward. We define new goals, identify possibilities and opportunities in a sensitive and supportive environment.
After years of professional development trainings, I am a professionally trained Co-Active Life Coach (PCC), educated with the globally renowned Coaching Training Institute (CTI) and accredited and a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
I am a certified Relationship Counsellor CBCAB working with Relate.Org.UK as well as my own private clients and am a member of the National Counselling Society.
I have trained in Positive Psychology and am a certified Mindfulness Educator, incorporating all of these skills and tools for an integrative approach.
It is a truly inspiring experience to work with people as they explore their values, redefine their goals and develop best practices to choose to live life with a renewed sense of purpose. I offer both online and face to face sessions.

Wendy is rare and valuable to any organisation or individual she works with, transparent, vulnerable, non-judgemental, witty and oh so quick to get you to where you didn't even know you were heading and share with you the capital to do it. A rare being!
She has rebuilt my faith in humans and given me the methods to work on by which my future will be so much happier because of her. She is simply a true craftswoman and so obviously performing the right role for her.
"We think Wendy has all the qualities you would wish to find in a therapist. She is insightful, fair-minded, empathetic, warm and very quick-witted. She offers constructive criticism, pragmatic advice and emotional support. She always seemed to have new and interesting ways of looking at things and, although it can't be easy dealing with two people at the same time, Wendy did somehow give us both the right kind of time and attention."

Ever since I can remember I have been a bag of insecurities! When by chance I met Wendy and she later offered her services as a life coach it seemed like such a great idea although I even worried secretly about being a rubbish client!...... Having had a session with her every fortnight for the past nine months I can confirm that I worry so much less.
When I do worry, Wendy has succeeded in putting into place a set of easy to use tools to help me through. Our sessions are relaxed and informal, and even though the point is to 'work' together the time spent flies by and is always really enjoyable. I really cannot recommend Wendy and her work highly enough, her approach is very intuitive and she always finds exactly the right way to move through every session by helping me to access my own imagination. At the end of our time together I always feel lighter, brighter and way more able to deal with life gracefully.
Wendy Sage epitomizes her name serendipitously! She shares the character traits of Wendy Darling from Peter Pan: nurturing, courageous and understanding. She is boundlessly positive, patient, and encouraging, all the while leading me like a SAGE! Wendy has coached me to design an alliance between what I need and what I want. She always keeps me on track to stay in the present, to honour my values, even to celebrate "failure" during this exciting journey called life. I am infinitely grateful.
Wendy is amazing! She lights up My life. Each time we have a session I come out of it feeling joyful, happier and more balanced. She is indeed a very insightful life coach with great compassion, kindness, understanding and skill. Whatever the subject being discussed, be it a feeling, an emotion, a situation, she brings me to a higher level of understanding myself in a more accepting and loving way. We are our worst critics ! She makes it all much more effortless to address anything.
