Overcome your insecurities and

make peace with your story

to unleash your potential!

Do you feel like:

- you're stuck in your head and overthinking?

- you have many thoughts or beliefs limiting your potential ("not good enough", "I can't do this", etc.)?

- you're mastering self-sabotaging?

- it's hard for you to find solutions to your problems?

- you're afraid to make mistakes and feel like you have to be perfect?

- being wrong or failing makes you feel so down that you want to give up, or actually never start so you don't feel that way?

- your stomach is upside down when it's time for you to speak in a meeting or in training?

- you don't love yourself?

- your insecurities are holding you back in your career?

- you're not confident in some or most aspects of your life?

- you don't speak up for yourself and you apologize too much?

You want to:

- change your thoughts and behaviour

- have a better quality of life

- get rid of the weight on your shoulders

- live a meaningful life with more abundance and less anxiety

- feel confident, powerful and in control of your life

but you're not quite there yet...

You're still stuck, insecure, uncomfortable?

You're looking for support and guidance that would fit your needs and your busy life?

You need someone who's been there!

First, I hear you: I know what it feels like and I send you all my compassion right now. Living an adult life is not easy; it can feel scary, lonely and very hard at times.

Even though there are similarities in human experiences, each person is different. You have your very own story made of many different experiences throughout your life; at home, at school or at work.

Speaking of which, your experience at school has shaped a lot of your thoughts and behaviour. The school system is extremely damaging for most of us:

- with grades, we end up believing that mistake is failure, and that success means no mistake; this huge amount of pressure and judgment leads to anxiety at school and burnout at work

- many of us have also experienced bullying at school; that leaves serious scars...

- students are seen as empty boxes that teachers should fill up and if your container is different than the "norm", then it means you are the problem...

Your family story can make it better or worse. Same for your work life.

All this has lead you to believe what you believe now. It's probably why you feel like you can't do it, you're not good enough or that you need to be perfect in order to succeed / be worthy / be loved (fill in the blank...).

The thing is, if you don't deal with it, you will never be able to be fully free, confident and happy; you won't be able to access your full potential and will always struggle to somehow...

Can you imagine...

- if you could have thoughts that boost you instead of bringing you down

- feel confident enough to do anything you want

- speak up for yourself and be respected

- have a life you fully enjoy

- feel lighter and brighter

- be able to unleash your potential in ALL areas of your life!

That's why I've created

this program!

Who am I ?

Sarah Dessert


Yes, my real name is Dessert, and it suits me well because I do have a sweet tooth!

Born and raised in France, I decided to start a new life in Canada.

Helping women to feel free and empowered is my passion in my life!
I can’t wait to be of service to you and
guide you to the most wonderful version of yourself!

My teaching career and my natural instinct for helping people have shaped me as the coach I am today. This is why people close to me come to me as well!

Teaching women for many years (and being one myself) has allowed me to know them quite well: understand their needs, their challenges, as well as their strenghts.

I’ve received lots of feedback about my great energy and my compassion. Together, we build a solid bond and work on self-confidence to overcome obstacles.

As an empath, I feel deeply, can easily connect to people and have a powerful intuition. All this helps me to guide you based on what you share with me!

Let's go back for a moment

In my personal and professional experience, I’ve been asking myself: how is it possible that happy kids become unhappy adults?

Have you ever asked yourself why is it that we are so supportive, encouraging, caring with babies and young children but not with adults? Well, I have!

I wanted to know when this change happened and the reason why. I started by reflecting on my own journey; to help you see what I’ve learned, I’m going to share some of my personal story here.

When I was young, I was a happy and enthusiastic child; I used to love school (yes, even homework!) and was comfortable in my life. Because my family moved, I had to change schools a couple times and the sensitive and dreamy kid that I was, started to discover that school can be the best or the worst thing… My teachers used to tell me over and over again that I was a good and serious student but too slow or too distracted and it would show up in my grades. Before then, I had never really asked myself who I was; like all the kids, I was just living my life. But suddenly, adults were putting words that were supposed to describe me.

In secondary school, I had to endure bullying for several years. School became more like hell than a place where I enjoyed learning.

Unfortunately, at the same time, my home fell apart: there was violence, abuse, betrayal, abandonment, and divorce. I can't even describe how much pain I had inside...

This deeply affected me: my self-confidence was shrinking, my inside world becoming darker and my desire of living slowly disappearing… I just couldn’t wait for high-school to be over to get away to university and start fresh!

But because I didn’t get the help I needed at that time to process all this and heal, my damaged self-esteem followed me at university and then on my first job experiences…

The list of my symptoms was quite long:

- I had a huge amount of anxiety, panic attacks were a big part of my life

- body pain and discomfort

- I was seeking approval

- became a people-pleaser to try to avoid any conflict

- couldn’t accept feedback because I was feeling attacked

- was trying to be fast not to hear I was "too slow"

At some point, I let others define me because I didn’t believe in my skills and knowledge. I used to be so scared of confronting people that I didn’t stand up for myself because I thought it was my fault somehow and that I wasn’t really worth it

It took me quite a long time to be aware of the damages all this had made; then I had to rediscover and rebuild myself layer by layer for years.

I’m sharing all this with you today to let you know that if you see yourself somehow through my words, keep in mind that this behaviour is a consequence of something that happened to you, it’s not YOU.

So if you think that you’re not good at something or that you could never succeed in something, it’s not because you suck, it might be because you have lost faith in yourself

Throughout what I call my "way back to life", I’ve actually learned to reconnect with the joyful child that I was. That is the natural state of a human being: joy! Depending on how you've lived your life as an adult, it can be tough to reconnect to this inner child, to be aware and heal, in order to find again this place of confidence every single human being should have. But it’s so worth it, and truly the only way to be authentic, free and happy!

Most people who meet me today don't even suspect that I went through so much as a young girl; that's the power of resilience right there! And guess what, you have that inside of you too!

Each and every one of your experiences has shaped your vision and your behaviour (your perspective of life). I’ve come to understand that one of the main issues is actually the school system. A person growing up with judgement, competition and punishment will easily become an over-demanding boss, a mean colleague or a non-supportive parent because that’s what they learned to do and/or to be. Bullying can then happen all over again in your work life if you don’t do something about it.

Not long ago, I was sharing the metaphor of the tree. Your self-confidence is like a tree (I am Groot!): when you’re a baby, adults around you water the tree and you build your self-confidence as you grow up. But throughout your life, people or experiences can be like an ax cutting off parts of your beautiful tree, and if you don’t stop it, your tree eventually falls down…

The great news is that your resilience can help you make the tree grow again! You have way more resources than you think. It’s never too late to work on yourself to be better and happier!

I’m the living proof that you can be completely destroyed and still find your way back to being the most joyful version of yourself!

What I've seen in my classes

Now as a French instructor for adults, I started to notice that some students were failing at French. I believe that there is no failure when it comes to learning a language, except if you give up. So if you stay committed, you can only succeed! However, no matter how much I encouraged them, I could see sadness or frustration on their faces: they were stuck, afraid, insecure, and they would eventually stop learning. As their instructor, I felt sad because I could see their potential.

I realized that they needed something more, something that was beyond French; something I was missing too when I was younger... That's why I decided to start my own business in 2020: so that I could offer them what they needed.

That's how Thrive was born!

I've created this program for you to overcome your insecurities, make peace with your story and unleash your full potential!

I want to help you thrive, feel empowered, free and confident so you can live your best life!

Your life will change

- get out of your head and reconnect with your body and intuition

- believe in yourself again (#beyourowncheerleader)

- reduce anxiety and boost your self-esteem

- know that mistakes can be your best allies

- be your own best friend (no more self-sabotaging!)

- feel more confident and powerful than ever before!

I'm the bridge builder

You don't need to take the long and hard path I did,

I've created this coaching program with all the golden nuggets

I've gathered along the way!

As we take this journey together, we work on what’s keeping you from thriving, we boost your self-confidence and communication so you can live your best life!

It’s one thing to have an "adult life", but another thing altogether to pierce through the inner obstacles that hold you back from using your full potential.

I’ll support you and co-create this with you,

so your journey feels like YOU.

The program is based on 3 pillars:

1. discovery sessions:

introduction of the topic and how it applies to your life

2. integration sessions:

follow-up after the discovery session and

what difference it has made in your life

3. practical activities between sessions:

you will have an assignment after each session

to boost your personal growth

Together, we'll learn and unlearn, we'll get rid of the weight on your shoulders and the obstacles in your mind, we'll put a real smile back on your face and even reopen your heart!

Are you ready to be the next and better version of you?

I offer a judgement-free space...

I’ll listen to you and open a judgement-free space where you can share your story. I’m not here to judge, I’m here to help! Together, we'll see how we can make your life better!

I establish a safe, caring and fun atmosphere so that everybody feels comfortable to be just who they are and not afraid to say the wrong thing.

The human interaction is what I love the most about being a coach: to help people get where they want to be, guide and support them on this path, show them that they can do it by ​rebuilding or improving self-confidence.

Whatever your reason is (your "why"), I’m devoted to help you thrive and reach your goals!

I bring my energy and my experience to co-create this journey with you.

At Sweet French Learning, we empower each other! We work on what’s keeping you from using your full potential and once you get rid of these obstacles, you naturally thrive in your life!

It’s as simple (and efficient) as that. Just like the name of the program is saying: you thrive!

What sets me apart as a coach:

I’m a survivor of years of bullying (at school and at home):

I've been through all this and I've managed to come back to the most joyful version of myself; this a tragedy-to-triumph kind of story!

There's a pretty good chance that I know what you are or will be going through.

I did the work:

I've done therapy and mentorship programs for years to build myself back up. I've managed to reconnect with my emotions and my body.

I've studied communication and human psychology at university, and I'm still learning about it (it's a passion of mine) so I can bring you the best knowledge in this program!

I'm an instructor:

My teaching career and my natural instinct for helping people have shaped me as the coach I am today. This is why people close to me come to me as well!

My unique style:

I’ve received lots of feedback about my great energy and my compassion. Together, we build a solid bond and work on self-confidence to overcome obstacles.

As an empath, I feel deeply, can easily connect to people and have a powerful intuition. All this helps me guide you based on what you share with me!

It’s not just a job:

I'm in LOVE with personal growth, it's truly a passion of mine; that’s the reason why I’ve decided to make it a business!

I don’t do this just to pay my bills, I do this because I'm passionate, I love to connect and help people to thrive and be a better version of themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the program?

We take this journey together for 3 months (12 weeks), with 1 session of 90 minutes per week. Each part of the program is one month.

I work full-time, can I still do the program?

Yes! As mentioned in the bonus, I offer a very flexible schedule for busy people: I do morning or evening sessions and Saturdays, so you can always have a spot to book your sessions.

How much time does it require per week?

You'll need to book 1.5 hour in your week for our session. After that, you'll need some time to review things and do the assignment. This time is up to you: how much you can do, how much energy you have, and it can be very flexible. Think about it as time for yourself, just like you would set a time to do self-care, meet a friend or have a date with your loved one. We can talk about it during our Meet and Greet.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes, there are several options available for you; we'll explore that during the Meet and Greet.

What happens if I click on the button?

When you click on the buttons, my scheduling page will appear. There, you can follow the steps to book the best time for you to have a video call with me. During this call, we'll get to know each other, chat about your goals, see if we're a good fit, talk about your questions or concerns and then discuss the payment options if it's a YES on both sides.

How many spots do you have?

Right now, I only take private clients for this journey. My schedule is filling up so there's just a few spots available. Moreover, we need to be a good fit for you to get the best value out of this program. So booking a call with me does not automaticly save you a spot. If we decide to go for it during our Meet and Greet, I'll confirm your spot once payment is made.

Do you do group sessions?

Yes, but only on demand right now: either you already have other people interested, or you can ask to be on the waiting list for people who only want to do group sessions.
