Hi, I'm Sarah Naidoo-Banks, a Business Psychologist and Coach based between Derbyshire and London. My passion is to bring the latest psychological research and insight around performance and well-being to enable personal and professional development. I have a particular interest and expertise around one to one coaching and emotional intelligence including the relationship we have with ourselves and others, showing up as our authentic selves, building trust and collaboration with others.

The way that I do this is to create safe, engaging spaces for collaboration and learning where we can tap into collective wisdom and intelligence... hopefully having some light-hearted fun in the process.

The credentials.... I have been working in the field of professional and personal development for almost 20 years and practicing as a Business Psychologist for 10. I have experience in a diverse range of sectors including housing, education, insurance, engineering, healthcare and the creative industries. I have coached individuals at all organisational levels from new starters to mid-level managers and c-suite executives, high-potential talent and entrepreneurs.
