Hi, I’m Sarah. Proud mum of two, besotted wife and the founder of A Simple and Contented Life. I’m incredibly passionate about helping others to slow things down, take back control and create a family life they love. I’m at my happiest when armed with a book in one hand and a hazelnut latte in the other. My boys are my world and I’m easily distracted by anything pretty – especially stationery. My mission (whilst figuring out how to keep my house tidy and conquer my never-ending to do list) is to create a happy and (relatively!) stress-free family life – and to help you do the same.
I have spent the majority of my working life coaching and mentoring others in one way or another. My background in project management and contingency planning means I love any excuse to plan and organise. I hold qualifications in psychology, leadership and event management and in my life before children I had my own event management company. These days however my life is all about family – my family and your family. I’d love for you to allow me to be part of your journey. Together I know that we can create a family life that you love. One that you won’t want to take a vacation from.
