WHO AM I?
Burnout Coach | Neuroscientist | Nerd
As a self-proclaimed nerd with a neuroscience, financial services, supply chain and tech background, I’m here to cut through the coaching fluff to help you overcome burnout using simple science-based techniques delivered in a fun, light-hearted way.
How it all started
I am, and always have been, intrigued by why people think the way they do and the science that drives our behaviour. This led me to study for a BSc in Neuroscience and, although I loved the subject, I couldn’t see myself in a lab.
Instead, I switched lanes, taking an MSc in Computing Science and landing in the tech space around the time everyone was freaking out about Y2K (remember that?).
Over time, I realised my strengths lay in learning new things (I adore learning!) and making complex ideas understandable. That’s when I began leading high-profile change projects for large financial organisations and the stress really started to mount.
BUILD UP TO BURNOUT
As an introvert with social anxiety, I sometimes found it tough to navigate corporate life. I’d beat myself up for not being assertive enough, needing thinking time and hating traditional networking. That happened even though I could chat and have fun with my colleagues day to day!
Eventually, it all got too much and I experienced periods of burnout, mental illness and chronic physical pain. That’s when I knew something had to change.
CREATING MY OWN ROADMAP
I took a step back to reassess and figure out what I really wanted from life. I decided to study for an MSc in Psychology & Neuroscience of Mental Health and an Accredited Advanced Diploma in Coaching to allow me to set myself up as the coach I needed when I was struggling.
I also embraced my creativity again, something I’d let slide while languishing in the quagmire of corporate stress.
Now I channel everything I’ve learned through my qualifications, my working life and my recovery to help experienced managers facing burnout reconnect with themselves, set out their vision and achieve their goals.
That's when I knew something had to change.
“Sabrina is amazing and really helped me focus on my values when I was struggling to decide if a job was right for me. She helped me focus on the positives and understand what it is I value in a job, helping me make the right career move.”
COULD I BE THE RIGHT COACH FOR YOU?
If you’re looking for a straight-talking coach who’ll challenge you and tell it like it is but also make you smile and be your biggest cheerleader, I could be just the coach you’re looking for.
