Want to know a little secret? You are about to play your happiest role in life. Some might say you’ve already portrayed the perfect character as a shining example of personal and professional success, but you and I know better. You’ve been side-stepping being in the spotlight of true happiness to put others first, to exceed expectations and to hit every line on cue. And you have! You’ve done it all, but you’re left wanting more. Guess what? It’s never too late to re-write your script, change the upcoming scenes in your life and simply play you.

Create The life you want

You have the power…

Regardless of where you find yourself—working mom, empty nester, newly divorced or approaching retirement—you sit in the director’s chair of your own life. If you’re feeling too tired, too stressed, unfulfilled and unlike your true self, you have the power to shout, “Cut!”

Do you realize you create your own circumstances? You cannot change the people around you, but you can change yourself—which in turn, changes the responses and expectations of your family, your friends and your boss.

It all begins with personal transformation. It’s a process of gaining self-awareness, empowerment and making changes that support the life you want. I’d really like to talk.


Meet Sarah

I know what it’s like to live what appears to be a successful life, but I knew something was missing in my own life. I was stuck in a rut and I was no longer fulfilled or satisfied. I knew there must be more to life, but I didn't know what. Part of me felt guilty and that I should be grateful for what I did have.

Despite not graduating from high school, I achieved a seemingly successful career and personal life. I graduated from nursing school, completed my MBA and climbed my way up the corporate ladder. I made a transition from the UK to the USA, I married a kind, loving man and I became a mother. I achieved more than I ever thought possible.

I followed the rules. I did everything I thought I was supposed to do to find happiness, but I wasn’t happy.

It all became very apparent to me one Friday after coming home from business travel. My then six-year-old son was excited to see me and wanted me to play with him. I thought, “You’ve got to be kidding.” I was exhausted. I suddenly had a realization that this was going to be my life for the unforeseen future unless I did something to initiate change. I had been living this life for so long—I had no idea what to do!

This prompted me to find a coach to help me navigate my life. That is how I discovered the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). Through my experience as both a client and now as a certified coach, I realize I had been living at the effect of my circumstances—reacting to whatever showed up in my path as if it was an obstacle or challenge I needed to overcome, rather than being the creator of my life and choosing rewarding and fulfilling experiences.

Taking ownership of my life has been, and continues to be, my most empowering experience. I now choose how and what I want in my life, and I am dedicated to helping other women begin their own transition and discover their happy beginning.

Q and A


How are you different from other transformation coaches?


A lot of coaches focus on helping their clients overcome a problem or challenge. I focus my attention on coaching the person, not the problem. I help my clients uncover their hidden strengths so they can transform their lives and create lasting results, not temporary fixes.


Why do I need you? Can’t I just do this on my own?


I have clients who come to me after having read multiple self-help books and they know all kinds of strategies they could be implementing to change their lives. Books are great, but books can’t be there for you when you have to put your knowledge into practice, when fear shows up and you need someone who understands what you’re going through or when you need someone to offer support and guidance.


I’m really busy and overwhelmed, how much work is involved before I get results?


This question makes me smile. All of my clients are busy and overwhelmed – that’s why they work with me. I work with each individual for a minimum of three months. How quickly you get results depends on how willing you are to step out of your comfort zone and do the work. One of my clients described her result as ‘rewiring her brain,’ which doesn’t happen overnight. The more consistent you are, the quicker and better your results will be.


If I’m not quite ready to get started, is there a way I can sample your work? What if I have additional questions?


Yes, sign up for my monthly Newsletter. I share my blog and activities that will help you get to know how I work. I also offer a "get acquainted call.” This is a 45-minute one-on-one call with me to discuss your needs and it gives you a chance to get your questions answered.


Sarah, I wanted to share with you how coaching has helped me. Prior to coaching, I was a person who always wanted to please others even if it would take me off my path to personal happiness and or carrier goals. As I reflect over this last year I realize coaching has allowed me to identify what my true goals are and happiness has always been within my reach it was my state of mindset that needed to change by setting boundaries and expectations with the people I come in contact with on a daily basis whether its personal or business. Coaching has also helped me to realize that in life we are faced with positive and negative scenarios and my reaction towards those encounters now are the same “it is what it is” I choose how I react and coaching has given me the tools to unshackle myself from the prison I have created and gain freedom. I do have days where I self-doubt or get in a state where I feel “overwhelmed, and targeted”however when this occurs I literally press the pause button and I am able to step outside and view the situation for what it truly is and I am back to a place of happiness. At the end of the day, I now realize I choose to perform at my best due to my own expectations. Not the expectations of others that I programmed myself unconsciously to believe throughout the years.

“Thank YOU for doing what you do! I don’t know if it is the power of suggestion or because we did the monkey mind exercise but I actually fell asleep last night at about 11pm (I haven’t gone to sleep before 4am in about 5 day prior to that!) and slept the entire night through. I never realized there are so many things that I do and don’t do that are blocking me from what I really want my life to be.”

There was a time that I felt that my career had hit a pothole and I was merely putting one foot in front of the other to show up. My eyes were opened to a new possibility when I started working with Sarah Bell. From her coaching, I was able to identify boundaries that had built up frustration and negativity for years. Learning new skills helped me to move forward, viewing challenging people and situations as an experiment. This approach had a very positive effect, making me aware again, that I am a strong, intelligent, and happy woman, despite anything that happens to and around me.
— S.M.
I reached out Sarah to help me figure out my next career move. She helped me identify my personal barriers, the things that were holding me back, and then helped me move past them. Through this process, I changed the way I think and this changed my approach to new challenges. Sarah customized my program to meet my needs and helped me develop the tools that I continue to use. She is personable and compassionate with a sense of humor. The experience of working with Sarah changed my vision of my life giving me a greater understanding of what is important to me, how to achieve what I want in life and how to stay focused.
— J.G.
Whenever I get “stuck” in life, personally or professionally, Sarah is the person that unsticks me. She challenges me and takes me out of my comfort zone, yet does it in a very comfortable way. She’s helped me with achieving work/life balance, assisted me in identifying barriers that I didn’t even know I had and helped me to break those down to be the best me that I can be in all areas of my life. She easily recognizes my driving force and uses it to motivate me to become better, achieve my goals, and does it without pressure. She is sensitive and understanding, along with possessing a plethora of tools that she will share that are always amazing and helpful. I’m grateful that she is my coach!
— T.E.
Thank you for my sweeties growth and ambitions - you are the greatest.
