My Story

Why I Am A Life Mentor

Meet Sahar - Raw & Real

My Self-Empowerment Journey

This is my story about self-awareness, personal development, and adopting a Holistic approach to life. How I was inspired and guided to become an Intuitive Life Mentor and launch Sahar Palmer Life Coaching.

All of these are available online and in person.

You Are Unique

Everyone has a unique journey and I want to share mine with you. What has helped me discover who I am and my life purpose. While the path was by no means easy, I can honestly say it shaped my life and who I am today. Your life, as well as the lives of your loved ones, can transform too, just as mine did. Let me help to Unbox the Real You!

The Watershed Moment

My early twenties were exciting, and I was happy as I excelled in my advertising career. This changed overnight with the disastrous Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. This invasion of the country in which I grew up changed my life overnight. I experienced trauma, chaos and a sense of powerlessness. It was a catalytic moment in my life, which sent me on a quest to understand, adapt, restart and ultimately to live my best life. But how? We all have events in our lives which act as triggers and catalysts for change.

As a result of my life-changing trauma, I could not think clearly – let alone decide which direction to take in life. I sought the advice of friends and therapists but found it did not apply to me. I realised that the change had to come from within me, and as difficult as this time was, it forced me to consider what I wanted out of life. But before I could accept what had happened, I needed time and space to find myself, to meet with myself; and understand what my life was about.

Life-Changing Decisions

Because of the rapid pace of events in my home country, dramatic action and changes were required. I left my home and my family and moved to England. At the time, I did not have a clue of how I was going to support myself. All I knew was that I had to do something, that things had to change. I left my successful career behind and began my search for answers that eventually led me to tap into the intuitive, psychic and healing side of me that I had not used professionally. One thing led to another and I became a professional intuitive.

This new path combined with my appearances on the BBC, London’s LBC radio, and regular press coverage from various magazines, including Woman’s Own and London’s Evening Standard, were a far cry from my earlier life in Kuwait. It felt good to be acknowledged three times as “One of the Best 100 Psychics in the World”.

The Goal of Challenges Is to Overcome Them

While my path has been challenging, the journey so far has been thoroughly enjoyable and thrilling! I have learnt that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to life’s problems. Rather, growth and self-empowerment are a gratifying process. The more we apply our awareness in daily life, the more we take control of our lives. More crucially, as this process of self-discovery unfolds, we grow wiser. In hindsight, a traumatic and challenging crisis turned out to be a major positive turning point in my life, leading me to where I am today. I am grateful because I feel self-empowered and activated my own inner guidance. I have found my inner compass, and this is what I needed.

Through personal intuitive sessions, I have since helped thousands of people worldwide to become self-empowered, and I have guided them towards happier, more fulfilled lives. I do this by raising their awareness and guiding their self-development.  In this work I found my path unfolding towards mentoring and helping others to Unbox and live more fulfilling and richer lives – their best lives.

Moving Forward After a Loss

On my journey, I have endured the loss of my father, brother, beloved husband and, most recently, my mother. I have learnt about personal resilience first-hand having to restart my life each time, rising like a phoenix from the ashes to find a deeper meaning and renewed purpose.

As part of my renewed purpose, in 2004 I started podcasting to help my clients develop a higher spiritual perspective to their lives. Unbox the Podcast empowers listeners to become more deeply aware of how our daily lives shape and create our individual life journey. Understanding that when we release our limitations and come out of the box, we can make real the life we desire and feel free and full of joy. I uncovered my core beliefs in life, having been tested by life many times over. I am often referred to as “a wise wo-man” by friends and those who know me! For more on my personal story – please watch the two videos on this page. I hope they inspire you to reflect on your life journey and uncover what your life purpose is.

Helping You Find The Answers You are Looking For

The key to finding answers is to ask the right questions. I searched for answers on how I can “control” the outcome of my life and be in charge. In short, this led me to study several holistic modalities and methods over many years, eventually leading me to develop my own transformational process that I call Unbox The Real You™ with Sahar.

Unbox The Real You

My mentoring approach is called Unbox the Real You and it is based on my own methodology: The Four Dimensions of Change, which helps you unblock and align your being with your purpose. It helped me to become aware of my core beliefs. One of my core beliefs, developed over my undulating life journey, is that our life is like a movie. If we don’t like the script – we can change it!

You too can change your script. The secret to realising your goals is alignment. Once you are in alignment, guidance from “higher intelligence” always flows when needed and meets you at your level of awareness. The more your awareness develops, the more crystal-clear guidance is available to you and the more options you have to build the next phase of your life.

Our Guiding Star

The best thing you can experience is that when you reach a higher level of awareness, it ignites what I call your That is your own inner sense of knowing that acts as your compass and stays with you throughout your life. It is your source of feeling self-empowered!  As a result, we can manifest our life desires with ease.

My guiding star allowed me to draw possibilities to me, instead of struggling to realise my goals. I followed my Guiding star and became a published author writing a monthly life coach column As part of my renewed purpose, I started podcasting to help my clients develop a higher spiritual perspective to their lives.
