About me

Time to re-ignite your spark, gain a more enjoyable experience of life, and become fully effective?

Would you like to tap into new capabilities and potential? To find clarity and contentment for life now whilst planting seeds for a flourishing future?

Together we will work to give you complete access to the power and potential of your mind. As a breakthrough coach, I love to reconnect people with their unique light for life. I point clients towards their innate resilience, mental agility and potential which enables them to navigate any life circumstance on their terms and create outcomes that they would love to see happen. This sounds like a lot of work, but there is only one solution and understanding how you become that offers a lifetime of contentment and success.

My 1:1 coaching life and business programs provide a singular focus, an engaged enjoyable partnership and are designed to create powerful shifts for your life, health and business.

These shifts or changes in perspective offer the greatest catalyst for lasting change. Who you become through this process will lead you to generate all the external victories that most matter to you. It starts with you, once my clients experience their own unbreakable mental clarity, well-being and contentment this becomes the baseline from which they grow. It stops people feeling insecure in life, and they learn to trust their judgement, step away from their critical thoughts and create a powerful, enjoyable, healthy lives, families and businesses. In business and performance understanding how your mind is designed to function naturally creates space for mental clarity and fresh thinking, prevents undue stress and pressure, improves working relationships and enhances confidence in your ability to perform at the required moment.

This Coaching is for you if;

  • You are experiencing a lack of fulfilment, purpose or are wanting to find direction.
  • You want freedom from depression, anxiety, indecision or helplessness.
  • You want to learn how to access the full potential and power of your mind.
  • You are an ambitious professional experiencing burnout or frustration.
  • Need help to regain a work-life balance before you sacrifice your personal life.
  • You are not enjoying your life.
  • You feel restricted by a health diagnosis.
  • You have on a paper a thriving life and business but feel something is missing.
  • You want to experience full, healthy relationships.
  • You want to break away from negative health behaviour’s around food, exercise, alcohol or constant negative self-talk.

How I can help;

We can have an enjoyable free initial consultation. A chance to connect, explore what you'd like from your life or business and discuss how you can start making it a reality. I can also give you a brief explanation of the understanding I coach in and check we are well suited to each other. Sometimes all it takes is one insight or idea for you to gain the clarity you seek.

If we choose to work together, we’ll tailor the program to suit your outcomes, coaching sessions are largely done online, however, in-person meetings are also included, the objective to be a welcome addition to your schedule, not something that needs to be ‘fit in.’

I will give you 100% non-judgemental support and regardless of our specific outcomes I can;

  • Help you live with more ease and well-being.
  • Help you access your innate potential regardless of environmental pressures.
  • Support you to experience well-being and joy despite physical or mental health problems.
  • Help you to break through barriers, access your highest potential and achieve extraordinary results.
  • Help you discover your passions and build a life or career centred around them.

Recent client;

I was referred to Laura by a friend at a time in which both my work life and personal life were struggling - I felt completely lost and couldn't see a way out.  Working with Laura has completely changed a negative, self-doubting mindset that was entrenched in me over a number of years and the end result has been such a transformation in a relatively short number of months.  I finally feel as though I am comfortable in myself and ultimately know what is infact important in life - which has transformed the relationships that I have with myself, my family and the rest of the world into such a positive place compared to what it felt like before.

I've previously undertaken months of different depression recovery courses, work-related coaching, personal coaching sessions etc. over my lifetime and although it felt at the time that they were of benefit, ultimately they didn't have the desired long-lasting effect that I was searching for.  I can hand-on-heart say that nothing has got through to me before in the same way that Laura has - our work together has definitely changed my life for the better and I finally feel at peace with who I am.

I honestly just wish that I had spoken to Laura years sooner - her good nature and friendly, heartfelt advice is worth it's weight in gold and the positive impact that she has had on both me and my own particular circumstances have been clear and apparent for all to see.  Even if you have tried personal coaching sessions before and have decided that it really isn't for you - open your heart, open your mind and let Laura work her magic!’ – David.

Testimonies and Recommendations

My clients regain their zest for life and trust in their potential.

'I started working with Laura about a year ago. I had no expectations and no idea how the sessions would be. It is refreshing to be able to openly discuss anything with no judgement whatsoever, for me, acknowledging the slavery of constant worrying and self-criticism.

I learned about making full stops and not indulging in self-made mind stories that filled my life with complication, anguish and anxiety. I created worries when there was nothing else to worry about when there was nothing else to do but to live and enjoy.

It is so liberating it hardly seems possible.

I invite you to walk with Laura, not just for the final destination if there is one, but for the journey itself. It is worthy.'

- Maria, July 2018.

"Before I started my coaching journey I quite honestly felt really lost in the world, I struggled to feel any real connection to anyone or anything. Laura's guidance took so much self-critical thinking and judgement off my mind it enabled me to see clearly again and live more freely. This has transformed my trust in my ability and my interactions with those close to me, meaning I feel much more connected to the people I love and also much more open to anyone new that I meet.

Since coaching with Laura I have a renewed attitude towards my future, I no longer haunt myself with a list of tasks uncompleted but have been able to let go of past ideas that no longer feel true for me, this has freed up so much headspace.

I would highly recommend coaching with Laura, for anyone, no matter what is going on in your life. For the first time, I can start to look at what it is I want to do that is fun in my life, what serves me and what I can do today that will lead to my best tomorrow." :)
