About me

I support high achieving but unfulfilled women to experience unstoppable success on their terms without sacrificing themselves in the process.

About you 

You now:

•You’re on your way to burnout, in a constant blur of busyness but none of the things you’re doing are for you. 

•Your life looks good ‘on paper’ but you can’t helping wanting more and thinking ‘is this it?’

•You’ve forgotten who you are and what you love, it’s been that long since you thought about it.

•You have got HUGE potential and know you're meant for more but the fear of failure and the pursuit for perfection is keeping you stuck and stagnant. 

What you want instead:

•To step off the hamster wheel, take back control of your life and career and stop living on autopilot.

•The courage be honest with yourself about what you REALLY want and not feel guilty about it.

•To remember who the hell you are, reclaim the parts of you that got lost along the way and confidently take up the space you deserve.

•The unshakable self-belief and confidence that you HAVE got what it takes to get out of your own way and not be held back by fear.

Further information

A handful of testimonials from some of my previous clients;

“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”.


“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”.
