About me

All women deserve unstoppable success and satisfaction in their life and career, without having to sacrifice themselves in the process. 

That includes you!

Wait, that’s not happening right now?

Then you need to keep reading!

I’m Leanne, I’m a leading international career confidence coach and I help women who feel UNFULFILLED to discover how to become UNSTOPPABLE🚀

 About You:

You’re sick of…

▪️Watching everyone else bag the promotion/ pay rise/ secondment (insert life-changing exciting opportunity of choice here), whilst you miss out AGAIN. There’re only so many times you can say ‘congratulations’ through gritted teeth...

▪️Suffocating inside your soul-destroying comfort zone because you’re paralyzed by perfectionism and petrified of taking a risk and failing (oh the shame!)

▪️Being unhappy and unfulfilled in your life or career but still settling and making do (cue excuse about not having time etc. because it’s easier than admitting to yourself the real reason that you’re still here).

▪️That horrible sinking feeling, knowing that if something doesn’t change, you’re going to look back with a bucket load of regret that you didn’t ‘go for it’.

Instead, imagine…

▪️Taking back control and making assured decisions about YOUR life- hello most confident version of you!

▪️Being excited about your future and the opportunities that you’re creating for yourself (imagine wanting to get out of bed and get stuck into your day? I know, crazy right?!)

▪️Believing in yourself and your abilities and building the lasting inner self-confidence to boldly go after your goal and achieve it! 

▪️Feeling like you are where you are meant to be and enjoying the success and satisfaction you deserve and have worked for.

Outcomes you can expect from working together:

Whatever you’re looking to achieve in your career, I can help you to boldly step forwards and confidently create the life and career you deserve.

▪️SHOW UP (in your existing role as the best version of you)

✔️Be your authentic self - instead of hiding parts of yourself or holding back how you really are/feel

✔️Communicate in all settings and all levels- instead of being held back by fear of judgement.

✔️Make decisions independently-instead of second guessing yourself and having to check with others.

▪️MOVE UP (and progress to the next level in your career)

✔️Take on extra responsibilities outside of the remit of your role- instead of sticking with what's within your comfort zone because you’re scared of failing.

✔️Change jobs, go for promotions, secondments, and other projects- instead of sitting back and watching your colleagues get the opportunities.

✔️Sell yourself and your abilities- instead of playing down your achievements and not accepting praise when it comes.

▪️CHANGE UP (and make that career transition you dream of)

✔️Connect deeply with your career vision and identify key priorities- instead of having a million ideas whirling around your head not knowing where to start.

✔️Map out a structured step-by-step plan and take the aligned action needed to move forwards-instead of feeling confused and overwhelmed.

✔️Finally face those fears of failure, rejection and judgement that are keeping you stuck-instead of talking yourself off out of your dreams and telling yourself you 'can't.

About me:

I’m an ICF certified Coach, Mentor, Trainer and Speaker, and I love the work I do helping women to feel happier and more fulfilled in their life and career.

But it hasn’t always been that way. I know firsthand how it feels to be unhappy at work and stay stuck, because this was me for 10 years.

Once I experienced the transformational effects of coaching for myself, I was determined to show other women that change is possible for them too.  This is why I am so committed to helping you with all of the things that have the power to make you feel…

•The need to constantly countdown to your next day off.

•That awful dread in the pit of your stomach on a Sunday as you think of the week ahead.

•Like collapsing in a pile every Friday with a bottle of wine wondering how you made it through yet another week.

Who I am:

🔸Coach, Mentor, Trainer and Speaker.

🔸20 Years Senior Leadership experience helping people at all levels maximise performance.

🔸Qualified with International Coaching Federation accredited Personal Performance Diploma by The Coaching Academy.

🔸 Certified Wellbeing Coach by The Coaching Academy.

🔸Self-development Specialist with extensive library of resources and support tools.

🔸A warm, kind, courageous, passionate, fiercely driven and determined Leader.

🔸A dedicated Mental Health Crisis Volunteer.

🔸A trailblazing change-maker with an unwavering and unapologetic focus on supporting women to stop making do, start making themselves a priority and live the life that they really want.

🔸An empowerer of women with a unique style shaped by my own individual experience of personal transformation that inspires my clients and reassures them that ‘I get it’.

🔸 A Yorkshire lass, partner to Paul and proud mum of two little boys, Oliver and Lucas.

🔸The expert that YOU need right now to help finally make the changes you can’t stop thinking about.

Further information

A handful of testimonials from some of my previous clients;

” Leanne is an outstanding coach. She has helped me build lifelong valuable knowledge and helped me put it towards practical experience within my workplace and personal life.

She has enabled me to recognise my wrongdoings and made me proud to take accountability; choosing love over fear to lead my thoughts and actions.

She has taught me skills that have helped me build a compelling future path for myself; balancing both self-acceptance and self-improvement to not only reach my destination but to enjoy myself more along the journey.

Leanne is a credit to her craft and her services have well surpassed my expectations.

My experience with 1:1 coaching with her has been life-changing and I’m much more fulfilled, confident and successful because of her. I can’t thank her enough”.


“Whilst initially unsure about investing both my time and money in a life coach ... Did I really need one? Couldn’t I sort myself out? Working with Leanne was the best thing I could have done. The information and tasks given before our first session ensuring that we got off to a great start by making me think about what I really wanted to get out of our coaching time together.

Throughout our sessions  Leanne was easy to talk to,  supportive, yet challenging, as she encouraged me to see beyond my self doubts and the limitations I was putting on myself. 

She has supported me to become the best version of myself, ready to face whatever comes next with positivity, greater self belief and an understanding of what I need to be successful based upon my values and needs. So much so, I am now looking forwards to starting a new job full of confidence and passion as I believe I will succeed”.


”Signing up for coaching with Leanne is a fantastic investment in your own personal development! Leanne helps you reflect on who you are and how to bring out the best of yourself. She will challenge you to set objectives and really work on yourself to achieve these objectives, so it requires real investment in time and effort. But if you do invest that time and effort it will be so rewarding. You will come out of the coaching with such an assurance and faith in yourself that you will ask yourself why you did not do the coaching sooner! Leanne is a wonderful person with whom you immediately feel comfortable and secure. I recommend this coaching to every woman because we all deserve to be unstoppable and be the best version of ourselves :) “.


“I started working with Leanne at a time in my life where I was going through a big period of change and I felt massively at a crossroads and generally quite lost. Leanne is an incredible coach who really helped me gain clarity and challenge myself during this time.
Sessions with Leanne were the perfect balance of challenge for my needs, Leanne knew exactly when to push me and when to hold back and give me thinking time to make sure I set the pace of sessions and got the most out of the experience.
I am really grateful to have found Leanne and had the opportunity to experience her coaching approach, I have achieved so much more with her by my side than I ever could have done working alone. Thank you so much Leanne, looking forward to working together again in the future!”


“As soon as I met Leanne I felt at ease, she portrays a sense of professionalism and I knew I was in good hands. Leanne gave me a safe space to work my own thoughts out and look at my belief system which was really useful as I was able to recognise what beliefs were holding me back and what beliefs were serving me.

Throughout our sessions Leanne has shown me warmth and understanding and given me the space that I needed to look at what direction my life has been taking and what I would like my life to look like according to my own values. I really felt that I was being listened to.

Leanne has enabled me to focus and find my own strengths and my passion for life again. I feel that I have gained more clarity and also empowerment to achieve my goals. I now feel confident in myself and my own abilities to tackle whatever comes my way.

Thank you Leanne for enabling me to press my reset button! You are so positive and inspiring and this has definitely rubbed off on me”.


“Learnt so much from my sessions in Leanne. She worked with me to give me the confidence to change certain aspects in my life I wanted to improve on. I am now much happier and my priorities have change and this is largely due to the sessions with Leanne. Would highly recommend working with Leanne and investing time in yourself”.
