I know what it's like to feel weighed down and exhausted by what's happening for you. I know what it's like to lie awake in the middle of the night, anxious and worrying. I know how it feels to be too tired, too depressed, too stressed to have any energy to look after yourself, or to see friends. I understand what it's like to be frustrated and desperately seeking clarity and answers - but none seem to come. And I know what it's like to feel profoundly lost within your own life -- wondering quite how things got this way and unsure about what can be done to change things.
Lots of things can lead to us feeling this way. It might be a job that is making you feel stressed and under pressure. Or maybe it just seems like there is too much going on in all areas of your life, and you feel overwhelmed. Or perhaps you feel disconnected from a sense of who you are and what's important to you in life - and you want to rediscover your sense of self.
I focus on working with accomplished women who have got to a place where they feel stuck or lost in terms of their career, relationship/s or personal development goals. For some women this means:
* Conflict or confusion about the right direction for you
* Fear of change - paralysed by thinking 'what if...'
* Lack of confidence that you can achieve what you want to
* Loss of identity and sense of who you are and what you care about
* Stressful, painful or 'noisy' thinking that is causing you to limit yourself
I work with women who are:
* Curious and seeking
* Keen to make a change
* Ready to think BIG, whatever that means for them!
Coaching is a conversation that creates change. The conversations we'll have will help you to remove barriers to living the life you really want and take steps towards lasting changes. Whether you want to address a career goal, improve your relationships or realise a personal dream, I can help you.
The coaching process I use supports you to understand the fundamental principles of the human experience, and we'll explore together how these relate to your current circumstances. When you begin to understand this, not only will you be confident to address with ease the things that brought you to coaching but, due to the transformational nature of the work, you will see natural and effortless improvements across all areas of your life!
If you would like to -
* Get 'unstuck' and find clarity on what you want to achieve
* Make the changes you want, with confidence
* Connect to what truly matters to you
* Feel happier, calmer and more at ease
* Enjoy better relationships

I'd love to find out about what's happening for you and to see if I can offer you some help!
I'm passionate about supporting women to thrive - professionally and personally. And the key is that I know from personal experience how EASY it is to thrive in all parts of your life - once you see how we work as humans!
I've been as low as can be in my time - stressed, burnt out, depressed. As the CEO of a small charity, I made it through each work day with a smile, but at home I was struggling to function. A few years ago I remember looking at my life and thinking, 'Is this it? Is THIS the experience I am supposed to have, year after year?! This can't be right...'
I was lucky enough to have someone show me what was really happening for me at that time.
Things changed rapidly for me and I felt happier, calmer and more energetic than I had for years!
These days, I know that our 'factory setting' is joy, calm and clarity. Truly. And I can show you how, no matter what is happening for you, you can see this and access it.
When you work with me you will see that:
* You can live a happy, purposeful and fulfilled life
* You can make the changes you want, without struggle
* Experiences (however painful) are not permanent
* Your default setting is calm and happy
I work with women who are ready to make a change in their lives - be that a career change, job change or simply a change from an unhappy state into a happy one! If you are ready to embark on a coaching programme that can fundamentally change your life for the better, get in touch to find out more.
What my clients say:
"Laura has really helped me to move forward through a really difficult phase in my life towards significant transition. With Laura’s help I am now on a life journey, which has helped me to focus on what is really in my heart for a future career and lifestyle change. Laura is warm, encouraging and compassionate. She has assisted me to achieve insight, identify my goals and develop a positive framework to achieve my objectives and make this change happen. I am calmer, more confident and excited about the future. Thank you so much for this gift of insight." Valerie K
"Laura, I just wanted to thank you! I have just enrolled on my PhD, something I've been wanting to do for years but you gave me the motivation and confidence to finally do it. A massive thank you!" Ally S
“When I started working with Laura I was overwhelmed by work, unhappy with my life and uncertain about what I wanted. Laura was insightful and supportive and I immediately felt at ease. I feel comfortable to dig deeper and be free to make bold decisions. I am amazed when I think about where I was to where I am now! This investment in myself has been like a supercharge of energy and inspiration.” Addie
“I first contacted Laura as a life coach to support me with some challenges that I was facing in my career. At the first session, rather than talking through my career challenges I probably surprised Laura with my personal challenges. She was excellent in adapting to the revised situation very quickly, more importantly the coaching that she provided at the session left me feeling with a much better sense of understanding of the challenges. Since then I have spent a lot of time working with Laura across both personal and career issues and her advice, guidance, support and ability to listen is beyond exceptional. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone considering using a life coach.” PR

A Southwell - "I had no idea how much life coaching would benefit me until I had these sessions. After each one I was motivated and positive, and I achieved so much every time! I had four sessions and I genuinely feel that I am much more focused because of them. I now know exactly what I want from my career and believe I have the strategies to achieve my goals, all thanks to Laura!"
Harriet - "Laura was a huge help during a period of time where I was questioning my career goals; from understanding why I do what I do, through to what skills I need to develop to get where I want to be – and also where I want to be! The sessions were incredibly insightful and really allowed me to reflect on my thoughts. I feel I’ve made noticeable changes to my day-to-day working life – in just three sessions too!"
