Miriam Sandbaek

living into the new story

We are being called to dramatically transform our ways of living here together on this planet. How do we learn to listen to and trust our inner voice guiding us into new possibilities? How do we come into right relationship with each other? How do we take care of ourselves in ways that serve the whole?

The work we do to know, accept and love ourselves is part of our gift to the world. Tending to the balance and health of our inner and personal lives are vital ways of bringing health and coherence to the collective. From a deeper place of trust and anchoredness in who we are, we naturally bring our authentic gifts to others and to the world. 

I support people to connect with their inner guidance, inspiration and confidence, to find more joy in their personal life and to be more connected and powerful in their work and contribution. 

I offer personal and leadership coaching, and facilitate groups, workshops and nature explorations. Whether the focus is on your personal life, or on your work or leadership, I guide you to explore and create from a place of openness, trust and possibility.

So much more is possible.

“Working with Miriam has been a life altering experience. I do not exaggerate when I say Miriam helped to connect me to a profound inner-joy. The effect of the work we have done together has not only bolstered my self-confidence and focus in all areas of life, but also facilitated healing in areas of misunderstanding and pain. Our work together has resulted in my professional and personal path becoming so much clearer, and in learning to trust my intuition. All of this has energized my academic writing and, most importantly, emboldened me to inhabit my dreams in the present.”

I don’t think words can truly honour what an amazing journey working with Miriam has been. You don’t necessarily see it at first, but each session lays the foundation for personal growth and reconnection to happen, slowly and powerfully over the weeks. And when it does, it is wonderful to witness all the path that has been travelled. Working with Miriam has been delightful and enlightening, and I am so grateful to have chosen to follow that voice inside of me telling me to invest in myself. This is what sessions with Miriam are all about : learning to listen to and trust what has been inside of you all along. Thank you Miriam.”

“Wow. What an amazing session. You’re a truly gifted coach and guide for the inner realms. I’ve worked with many brilliant coaches and mentors over the years and none has taken me so deeply so quickly to create such a powerful breakthrough. You surely and sensitively guided me into the labyrinth of feelings, beliefs and old stories that were in my way. Your brilliant questioning and spot-on intuitive guidance enabled me to have a huge breakthrough in just one session. I felt that you really saw me, who I am and the value of the work and gifts I long to share with the world. I feel catalysed, energised and awakened to the potential of the life I was born to live. And thank you for keeping me accountable so that I keep taking the next steps! I need that too.”

The presence Miriam brought to our work was really unique. She asked the right questions and guided me through exercises which helped me reconnect with myself again. This made me realize what is important and necessary for me in order to live more in line with my heart. I am so grateful for this journey; a process which has given me the new understanding that everything really is possible. Miriam is pleasant, open and warm and she has the tools to help you achieve change in your life“.

“Our job is not to comprehend or control everything, but to learn which story we are in and which of the many things calling out in the world is calling to us. Our job is to be fully alive in the life we have, to pick up the invisible thread of our own story and follow where it leads.”
