Training, qualifications & experience

So many coaching programmes and courses make wild claims about career success.

But they only do half a job.

They focus solely on the practical action steps (which of course are massively important).

But they don’t include the self-development stuff that’s equally as important!

For example, you can have the best CV in the world but if you

❌Massively doubt yourself
❌Struggle to communicate effectively
❌Are unable to share your value

You’re not getting the job.

You need a strategy that includes BOTH.

And that’s what I deliver.

Yes if you’re wanting a new role you’ll get guidance and support around what’s needed to be a proactive job seeker in todays market.

But we will also do the inner work to help you to

✅ Increase your confidence
✅ Communicate with impact
✅ Share your amazing achievements

And all of the other stuff that’s important when it comes to creating a successful career.

What else sets me apart from other coaches is;

  • My Formal coaching qualification of a Personal Performance Diploma (Distinction) by The Coaching Academy which is internationally recognised and International Coaching Federation accredited.
  • My certification in Wellbeing Coaching by The Coaching Academy.
  • My extensive resources I have developed for my clients following years of research in personal development, mindset and positive psychology.
  • My 20 years of Leadership experience helping people at all levels to maximise their performance and be the best version of themselves.

Further information

A handful of testimonials from some of my previous clients;

”When I first reached out to Leanne, I was in a situation where I wasn’t working in line with my values, my motivation and self confidence were at an all time low and I was stuck in a negative mindset loop that I just couldn’t break. Whereas previously, I'd always been able to rely on myself to get out of a situation that wasn’t serving me, I just couldn’t do it this time for lots of reasons.

Right from the off, Leanne set me at ease. I felt safe, not judged and not pressured - things could go at a pace I was comfortable with. Leanne is an incredibly compassionate and emotionally intelligent coach, with just the right level of checking in and holding me accountable - she knew how much I had on my plate. Her positive, cheerleading voice notes were like an injection of sunshine on a dark day. Things happened very quickly and not quite how I thought they’d turn out and Leanne was adaptable and flexible to my ever changing circumstances.

Reflecting back on how I felt at the beginning of the year to the place I’m in now, it’s been quite a journey and I know I can say with confidence that I’ve got my mojo back. I also know that for the inevitable bumps in the road, I have a trusted coach I can lean on and a set of tools to keep things like imposter syndrome at bay! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Leanne, it’s the best investment I’ve ever made in myself” .

-Helen C

” 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 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”.

-Helen B

”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”.
