Hi! I'm Lauren and I love coaching!
I previously had a career in Finance and chose to leave that behind in 2018. I now have a passion to help others to feel more engaged and motivated at work.
Who I love working with
Most of my clients are mid-career professionals, usually in their 30’s or early 40’s, who have bags of potential!
However, they feel stuck in their career or are struggling with overwhelm with a challenge they are facing. They have generally lost their mojo or their usually spark!
I help them to feel more happy, confident and motivated so that they can achieve the life and career goals that they desire.
I work both with individuals and with organisations who want to develop and engage their people.
If this resonates with you, I would love to speak with you. You can reach me via email email@example.com
Pricing and session structure
All coaching relationships start with a complimentary, no obligation 45 minutes conversation to see if we are a match to work with each other.
Nobody leaves the chat empty handed as I want to make sure you have a way to move forward by either us working together or by pointing you in the right direction.
During the session we can go through the investment involved and answer any of your other questions that you may have.
My personal coaching journey
My life changed in 2018 when I committed to two empowering personal development actions; firstly, I signed up to become a yoga teacher and secondly, I started to work with career coaches. Prior to that I had spent a decade in a successful corporate career as a Chartered Accountant in a wide range of roles both at Big 4 Accountancy and in the retail industry. Despite my fortunate career and privilege, I never experienced my true sense of belonging, my reason to get up every day and to look forward to the day ahead. My personal experience of coaching has opened so many doors and perspectives for me. By focusing on the following questions:
- ‘Who am I?’
- ‘What do I enjoy?’
- ‘What do I value?’
- ‘What is my purpose?’
and powerfully evolving my mindset and confidence, it has allowed me to break from the mould of my previous career path both boldly and openly. I have followed my dharma into a career of serving others through coaching! Having spent over a decade in the Corporate Finance sphere where deadlines and pressure to excel are demanding, I understand my client’s needs including a mix of empathy, flexibility, boundaries and accountability

£140.00 per session
Free initial online session
Coaching takes time to get results, to reflect that I sell in programmes rather than by session.
I flex my programmes to suit my clients needs and offer payment programmes.
I offer a complimentary career and development session to all new clients to see if we are a match to work together - try before you buy as they say!
When I work
Testimonials from some of my wonderful and inspiring clients
“Lauren has been my coach on and off for +18 months. Our sessions have helped me to tackle challenges in both my career and personal life, providing me with tools which have enabled me to build confidence and self-belief. Lauren will adapt each session depending on the focus to help me gain a new perspective on a situation or belief and will follow up with a comprehensive summary of our discussions, which again enables me to reflect. Lauren has really changed my opinion of coaching and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to make positive change to their life.”
“Lauren has been my life coach over half a year and has made an incredible impact. She has guided me and shared tools to find my passion and career I love. Moreover, she has guided me through application processes and helped me to find my strengths. She helped me to find confidence in me and empowered me which helped me to take the next big step in life. Lauren is truly an exceptional coach and I cannot wait to see what the future holds working with her.”
“Lauren would be my first recommendation for Coaching if you feel 'stuck' with life's problems. She has helped guide me through a challenging period, where I've sought 'clarity' in many areas of my work & personal life. Each session has been tailored in a different way to the last, to help stretch my mindset and realise this doesn't have to stop at journalling, but in other forms i.e gentle exercise, walking, yoga etc. to help 'lift the fog' and process. I also feel much more able to look at the issues I am having from different perspectives, using the resources we have worked on, such as affirmations and self-belief tools, to tackle them more rationally. Lauren's approach is friendly and flexible, giving me the time and space to think and breathe, which has been very beneficial to me and my wellbeing.”
