LAURA DAVIES: Experienced Career, Confidence & Life Coach (certified)

London SE1 & SE19

About me

Hi I'm Laura, a certified Career and Life Coach. I specialise in coaching those who feel stuck. If you…

  • feel frustrated with your current situation but are unsure how to change it
  • have a vision for the future but don’t know where to begin to achieve it
  • often describe yourself as stressed, overwhelmed or unmotivated
  • know that you are limiting your life by procrastinating
  • find it difficult to make the choices and decisions that are right for you

I can help. I coach people who feel this way and who want to make changes in their career or personal life. I can support you to gain clarity, identify your options, find motivation, develop your confidence, make decisions and most importantly to take steps to improve your life.

If career change is an area of focus for you my coaching packages include the option to use some of our coaching time to develop a CV that showcases your skills. We can work together to take practical steps towards your new career - including job searches and preparing for interviews.

WHY DO PEOPLE CHOOSE ME AS THEIR COACH?

I am practical - I focus on real-life steps that you can take right from our first session together. I know that when people are stuck they need real, practical support to start making changes. I take great pride in providing this and my clients often comment that they didn’t realise how much control they had over their happiness and success.

I ask insightful questions - When people feel stuck and haven't been able to make changes on their own they need thought-provoking questions to uncover the limiting beliefs and fears that have been holding them back. I will enable you to identify possibilities that you haven’t yet thought of. My sole focus is you and the choices you can make to improve your life.

I know you are busy - I understand that clients want to to see results but are also often juggling other demands and responsibilities. I will help you be accountable for the changes that you have committed to making and will ensure that we break down into manageable steps the actions that you need to take. We will also build in some strategies to ensure that you don't feel overwhelmed. I will help you to stay strong and focussed through the changes you know you need to make.

I value your investment - I understand that coaching is an important investment of time and money. I truly want to see you succeed and will ensure our sessions are tailored to you and what you need.

I appreciate that for some people contacting a life coach can feel daunting. For information about my free 30 minute consultation call, and how I work to ensure that everyone who contacts me feels confident and knows what to expect, visit www.iflifecoaching.com

TESTIMONIALS

“With everything happening in the world I wasn’t sure if now was the right time to work with a coach. Working from home during lockdown I had started to ask myself some questions. I realised that my life had felt stuck for a while. First of all, Laura helped me to work out why I felt so stuck. Laura is insightful and made links that I hadn’t noticed. We realised that some of the things that had kept me stuck in my job were also affecting other areas of my life. We talked through my options and Laura helped me to develop strategies. For the first time in a long while I feel calm and have a plan that I am excited about. Laura is kind, skilled, supportive and above all practical. Her free consultation call is great and I recommend her highly” Sarah, London - MAY 2020

"When I first came to Laura I was feeling very lost and confused in terms of career, and perhaps life in general. I’d completely lost motivation in what I was doing, felt trapped, and was basically questioning every decision I’d made in life, ever. I was skeptical about life coaches – I didn’t really know what to expect, I was wary of someone babbling cheesy inspirational quotes at me, and I felt a bit guilty about asking for help (I’m an adult, aren’t I?). I’m so glad I reached out though. Laura helped me work through my negative thought patterns, guided me through the process of applying and interviewing for jobs, and dropped a lot of life wisdom along the way. I am now about to start a new job which I’m really excited about, and am generally feeling more hopeful and confident about the future.Thank you Laura for your kindness, expertise and good humour!" Harriet, London - March 2020

"Laura provides a warm, reflective and non-judgemental setting, with concrete practical advice on career and self development. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is at some kind of crossroads, and needs a set of helpful new tools for getting to the next stage in work or around everyday life." Yves, London - March 2020

"It took me a while to get up the courage to find a life coach, let alone get in touch with one but I can honestly say, it was the best decision I've made. Coaching with Laura has honestly changed me for the better. She has a way of helping you unpack all your thoughts and feelings without making it feel daunting. I always looked forward to our sessions and found so much clarity and certainty from them - it actually made me feel more confident and more positive. Thanks to Laura, I've decided to take a route I had no idea I was capable of and it's incredibly exciting and a great start to a new decade. I'd genuinely recommend Laura to anyone that'd listen!." Zara, London - February 2020

FREE CONSULTATION

A free consultation call is a great opportunity for us to talk about what brings you to coaching. When you book your free consultation call you are under no obligation to work with me.

I enjoy these calls but I know that for some people this first step can feel daunting (my clients often tell me that sending the e-mail to book their call was the hardest bit!) To help you to take the first step this is what you can expect from a free consultation with me:

1. You'll send me an email to request a call (let me know in your email when would be a good time for us to speak). I'll email you back to say Hi and to confirm my availability.

2.  Once we have an agreed time I'll send you my contact details. When you call I'll start by asking you for a summary of what brings you to coaching.

3. I'll tell you about my coaching style and how I would work with the areas that you have identified. We'll have some time for questions – ask me whatever feels important to you. We will talk about coaching options and availability.

You may choose to start coaching straight away or you may choose to take some time to think through what we have discussed – either is fine because just by contacting me you are already refusing to stay stuck.

To book your consultation call email info@iflifecoaching.com I look forward to speaking with you.

"I felt really stuck in my career, knowing I wanted to make a change but without a clue where to start. Laura's practical, straight forward but energetic approach helped me break down an issue that felt huge to me, and helped me find a way forward. She brought so many ideas into every session and was an absolute joy to work with. I can't recommend her enough." Katy, London - November 2020

"I came to Laura thinking I wanted a completely different career. She was always supportive and positively challenging. She helped me to realise what I find most important in life & actually I didn’t need a different career at all!" Loren, London - February 2020

"How do you choose the right life coach? Simple, just choose Laura now! To be honest I was really sceptical. I contacted Laura because important people in my life were telling me to do something - they knew how unhappy I was. I felt stressed, lacked confidence and was stuck in a job I no longer enjoyed. Going into the first session I believed that no one would be able to help me move forward… I couldn’t have been more wrong. Laura asked the right questions, helped me work through some limiting beliefs and made my options clear. She then developed a fantastic new CV for me and I haven’t looked back. I am now working in a whole new sector and love my job! I no longer feel overwhelmed and I can finally trust my judgement and put myself first. Amazing! I tell everyone to have a free consultation call with Laura and you won’t look back! Thank you, Laura!" Liz, London - September 2019

"Laura quickly got to the root of why I felt stuck. She asked insightful questions and identified why I hadn't been able to make decisions. Laura carefully explored my mindset and how to address and overcome some of the things that were keeping me from moving forward. Coaching with Laura exceeded my expectations. I understand myself so much better and have made important life-changing decisions in a short amount of time. Highly recommend!" Stephen, London - August 2019

"The decision to be coached by Laura was one of the most important decisions I’ve ever made. Without Laura, I would still be stuck, full of hesitation and doubts about what to do. Working with Laura I have come up with a step by step plan that will help me to stay focused on achieving my goals. However, most beneficial were changes in my mindset and the realisation that I can achieve anything I set my mind on. Thank you so much, Laura!" Iryna, London - May 2019

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I coach in person at my offices in London Bridge. I also provide telephone and online coaching using Zoom and Skype. In some circumstances I am able to provide in person coaching at an agreed alternative location.

Availability

I offer both day time and evening appointments Monday to Saturday.
