Having always been passionate about helping others, I have found that being a Life Coach enables me to work in partnership with clients to achieve their goals, consider situations from a different perspective and to be happier in themselves. Having been "stuck' in situations that have not been beneficial, I understand the difficulty in moving forward and into the unknown. I use these experiences to enable others to identify where and how change may occur in a positive and solution focused way.
My business was created through my desire to help others be happier, be empowered and be true to themselves.
I work with people of all ages and offer a non-judgemental, confidential environment which is completely focused on the client.
A client recently wrote this testimonial and I think it describes the coaching journey perfectly.
"I went to Laura not really knowing what to expect, but knowing that something was stopping me from moving on in my life, keeping me from being truly happy.
I am not one for talking about anything personal but, straight away, Laura made me feel at ease and I felt so comfortable answering any questions asked and sharing things I had never really talked about before.
Through our sessions I have been able to piece together reasons for certain behaviours and "walls" I had built around myself over the years which have stopped me from moving on in my life. I have been learning to let go of traumatic experiences that I have never dealt with in the past, recognise behaviour that I have passed on to my children and how, importantly, I need to look after myself to be able to look after others.
I really feel that this experience has been life changing for me as it has made me evaluate my life and take steps to positively move forward. I really look forward to our sessions, Laura is so nice and easy to talk to and, even though some emotions can be hard to relive, the focus is always on the positive and looking for ways to deal with them and move forward through setting small steps each session towards my own personal goals.
Thank you so much Laura for helping me on the road to a more fulfilling, enriched life."
