Growing you, your people and your business

Performance, mental health, leadership, relationships, confidence, life events. Coaching at work to help your people grow.

Trusted by

Supporting and developing employees across all stages of their work and life journey.

Whether it’s a personal or professional challenge, a problem or a goal, 1-2-1 sessions with a qualified Sanctus Coach offer a confidential space and much needed time out from the day-to-day to reflect, get “unstuck”, work through worries, develop healthier approaches and gain new tools and perspectives that allow us to be the best versions of ourselves – both in and out of the workplace.

Our sessions empower people to proactively work on their mental wellbeing and provide them with the support we all need to navigate life’s everyday challenges.

What makes Sanctus different?

Sanctus Coaching has a unique flavour. Taking a holistic and sustainable approach to growth, we blend personal and professional development with proactive mental wellbeing support and self-care.

Since we all have days when we drag ourselves out of bed, and other days when we conquer our inbox, our coaches adjust their style to meet people where they are at – whether it’s a more therapeutic, nurturing approach, or a more goal-oriented, coaching approach. Most of all, we always coach with heart.

A once-in-a lifetime opportunity to redesign Employee Experience

The needs and expectations of employees have dramatically shifted. We’ve created a guide with practical insights from our 40+ qualified Sanctus Coaches and community of 500+ HR Leaders to help you understand how to build progressive workplaces that truly prioritise the human experience.

Coaching with Impact

We work with 1000s of employees every day, supporting them through life’s challenges, developing them and helping them to grow their resilience, self-fulfilment and performance.

"As always, whatever place you come into a session you always leave clearer. The sessions are invaluable to my life & look forward to them each month."
"Excellent. The session had a huge impact. My confidence, self respect and knowing what I want is all returning. I was a little lost but feeling more like my 'old self' again, which is exactly what I needed."
"It was a great space to speak openly and honestly and was a great reminder that I'm stronger than I think, even when I think I'm not. "
"My Sanctus coach is a very capable and exceptional coach. I always enjoy and look forward to my sessions with her. "

What you’ll get with Sanctus Coaching

  • Flexible, confidential 1-2-1 coaching sessions available to your employees.
  • Access to a team of qualified, accredited and vetted Sanctus coach (ICF, AC, EMCC, or BACP registered).
  • All sessions are geared to support employee wellbeing, development and growth.

We've chosen to do things differently.


We believe that with the right support, every single one of us can flourish and fulfil our true potential.

Coaching is more than a mystical space to feel good. Studies show impact not just in how people feel internally, relate to others and work through difficulty, but even show improvement on practical aspects of life, such as performance and competencies.

We’re proud of the fact that the Sanctus Coaching model and practice was one of the first, structured and regulated coaching models in the world for the workplace setting and today, still one of the most robust.
