In her own words
Hi, I’m Sarah Newton and I help parents and young people move away from problems and into the world of successful living. I am youth expert and teen success coach and my clients have dubbed me the ‘family peacemaker’. It’s inevitable that all families experience teen-related issues from time to time. I’m here to allow everyone concerned to navigate these sometimes stormy years more enjoyably - call me at Greatvine no matter what the problems are. I’m available to you as a specialist advisor for anything related to teenagers, young people, the family relationships, and/or academic matters.
The teenage years can be confusing, worrying and downright frustrating for everyone - parents and teenagers alike. My skills help put parents back in charge using simple, everyday solutions that keep relationships intact. I work from an authentic, compassionate and loving approach - I am not here to blame anyone, or to shame anyone into ‘changing their ways’. Instead I start from the belief that the teenage years can be enjoyable and that every parents wants the very best relationship possible with their teenager. I bring humour, warmth, and a genuine passion into everything I do.
Over the years I have honed and refined my methods and you’ll find my approach is totally unique. I have successfully eased family conflicts, brought families closer together and tremendously improved parent/teen relationships. As well as the family peacemaker, many clients have called me a ‘lifeline’.
I also dedicate my time to helping young adults gain the academic and professional success they deserve in life. I support young people’s academic progress by coaching teens using methods to increase exam grades. And youth is a time when there are often many life changing decisions to make, often with far reaching consequences. I also therefore support teenagers and young people to make grounded, appropriate life and future decisions. Improving their self-confidence and self-esteem is automatically an integral and central part of our work together.
If you would like some specialist help with any teen-related issue, you can speak to me here at Greatvine for real life techniques, advice, information - and a genuinely caring listening ear. I look forward to helping you!
"Great for anyone ready to pull their hair out. It calms you down, and opens your eyes to a teenagers mind."
"Sarah has an amazing ability to engage with teens and to help them overcome the issue they struggle with. Trust her! She was able to help our daughter in ways that we found difficult as we were seen as critical parents. Emma has learnt invaluable life skills that she will keep forever. She is not phased by the thought of starting college and making new friends, she is confident and she has all she needs to settle in quickly. Unlike many 15 year olds she is clear what she wants to do and happy and content with her decisions. "
Carolyn & Ian
"We were delighted with the impact of Sarah’s advice and felt it provided a lifeline for our son, at a time when he was really struggling. Her suggestions have given our son increased self-confidence and encouraged him to think about all of his options for future development. Our family is now a much more harmonious unit and we feel that we are at last able to communicate with our son in a way that we couldn’t before. Thank you Sarah!"
Parents to Alex
"Sian has a much clearer idea of her abilities and skills and how she could use these in her future career, she is more focused on her future. The ability assessment was very useful – very comprehensive and by talking it through with Sarah it helped Sian to gain an understanding of her natural abilities and how and why she finds some things less easy to master. Sarah gave support and an objective assessment with a comprehensive follow up."
Ros, Mum to Sian
"It's been one school term since having spoken to you and I am delighted to say, we have seen a real change in Jess, she is altogether happier and more confident and much better able to cope with problems that come her way. An added bonus has been that her grades in all school subjects have rocketed as a result of her new found confidence. We are truly grateful of your help, thank you."
