About me

Welcome to the 'Reclaim your true nature' coaching experience.

An experience that brings you back to life so that the ordinary becomes extraordinary again.

Have you lost your sense of humour?  

Is the world feeling heavy and serious? 

Are you longing to feel relaxed, light-hearted and your true self again?

It’s time to remember who you really are.


Your other half tries a bit of banter with you, and you just don’t get it.

Your mate sends you a meme and you scroll on by.

Your kid is finding the most ridiculous thing hilarious - not even a giggle from you.

Maybe you find yourself getting irritated by the jokey, happy people – ‘their stupid’. But deep down you feel disconnected and sad because you long to feel lighter and playful again.

I want you to know, that you make sense.

Somewhere along the way we lose our innocence.

We lose our sense of wonder.

We lose connection with ourselves.

Responsibilities, expectations from the world, shit things happen, and we get cynical and jaded.

Our whole body becomes wired to a baseline of stress and survival, which makes it very sceptical of anything ‘non-essential’ like laughter, playing or joking around.

Our soul gets heavy, and we feel a bit dead inside.

We disconnect.

This makes sense to those of us who are stuck in survival mode (and my guess is – you probably are).

You’ve been though a lot and you’ve been incredibly resilient. So, it’s difficult to switch gears into a more relaxed, open, playful state.

It’s hard to just be you.

I know what it’s like to lose connection to that innocence.

In 2014 my brother and sister died. After many years of battling with addictions and themselves they died of deep unhappiness and a part of me died with them too.

After this, I had to learn to accept my life and allow myself to fully live it. I had to slowly reignite that wonder within me. I had to remember how to see the good in the world. I had to reconnect with my true self again.

I can remember the moment that woke up that wonder within me. It was 7am on a Saturday morning in Notting Hill. My partner and I had gone to a morning rave, sober. I walked in and saw all these people dancing so colourfully, so joyfully. It was beautiful and overwhelming with sadness. Like I hadn’t realised what I had been longing for, until it was there, right in front of me. I had forgotten that I could feel this, and to see people connected to their own sense of innocence and wonder, woke that up in me.

Over the years I have intentionally tended to this. Practicing again and again to come back to the present, to come back to myself, being with my grief, offering myself compassion, teaching my nervous system how to feel safe in the ordinary, appreciating nature, being in stillness, making space for play, dance and joy. It’s been one hell of a cocktail!

And it’s this cocktail that I weave into my work – for people like you and me to sip together in this experience of bringing you back to life.


We are nature.

We are meant to be in the fresh air.

It brings us to life.

This is where I feel most myself and have also experienced and witnessed the simplicity of healing that nature offers. Our habitual spirals of thinking get interrupted and broken down when a bird flies past. Stopping to appreciate the ancientness of the trees brings perspective to our short lives. Training our senses to connect to the safety of what’s here, right now regulates our nervous system and brings us into a state of openness and connection.

And you will know this state because you’ve already experienced it……

That sense of wonder seeing the blossom in spring. 

The impulse to want to dash out and play in the snow. 

The feeling the light in your eyes from a sunrise.

Lying back and watching the clouds roll on by.

That is it. Aliveness. Right there. In you.

And I’m here to remind you of this. To give your whole body the experience that it is longing for – to be reconnected with you inner and outer world.

To be reconnected with your true nature.

Client Testimonials...

‘Before, I only had ‘events’ to look forward to and in between were just massive dips in my happiness. Since working with Leah, my base level has just raised up, so I start from a place of contentment even on the dull days when nothing is happening.’ 


‘Leah is not only compassionate and understanding, but has so many thoughts, wisdom and suggestions on how to get through each day which is great for me who seemed to be lost in a haze of fog where I just couldn’t focus on anything other than my loss.’ 


‘In the past where I've had CBT, I've been told to practice mindfulness without having a clue what it was or how to do it! In these sessions we practice it in the here and now. During counselling, it was more about reaching deep down to try and work out where my anxiety stemmed from, but no suggestion of what to do with that discovery, and how I might be able to tackle the issues that I had in life in the present. I now feel like I have practical exercises to build into my routine.’


‘I woke up this morning and it’s grey and miserable, and yet I just feel so happy. No real reason to be other than just an overwhelming sense of well-being. Working with you has changed so much in me. What you do is amazing. Thank you so much for helping me get here.’


‘My sessions with Leah offered a focus in the now rather than looking back and unpicking things from the past. It felt more freeing and optimistic than prior therapy experiences I've had.’


‘My coaching sessions with Leah have been so helpful. I’m glad I dedicated these 6 months to my development. It’s helped me improve my communication skills with others, be kinder to myself and be more present. Thanks to Leah, I’m now trying out new things that tap into my fun and creative side!’


‘I’m so glad that Leah came into my life. I feel I can start living again. She is so uplifting and joyous it is a real pleasure to know her.’
