Testimonials

Katherine

Lesley has a great warmth and empathy, the space she created allowed me to explore different aspects of my live, particularly my health in a safe judgement free way - I opened up to her much more than I anticipated I would. I always felt seen, appreciated and cared for throughout the process.

Having the time and a safe space to focus solely on myself at such a pivotal time in my life. Focusing on my relationship with myself and my alignment helped me to heal from redundancy and show up for myself as a trainee coach in my truest most authentic form. 

In particular the mirror reflection session stands out as a really powerful experience for me, Lesley challenged and supported me in equal measure to go through something that’s personally quite uncomfortable. I use the memory and experience from that session as an anchor if ever I doubt my confidence in myself, especially on Zoom or camera, dipping. My confidence has increased, my motivation has increased, my self belief has increased, as have my energy, vitality and courage. I would absolutely recommend this program to other people.

Emily

Lesley is very professional and I felt as though I could say anything to Lesley and I wouldn’t have felt judged.

Lesley has helped me to believe in myself, and trust my opinions and judgments. Before I started the course I was always second guessing myself or asking other peoples opinion on things, where as now I have the confidence to just do what I want to do and say what I want to say. Obviously in a way that is kind and I am still behaving in a way that I’m proud of but it has just really helped me to trust myself and my judgments and be more true to myself. I have learnt a lot about my boundaries and why they are so important and necessary. It has helped me to believe in myself, resulting in being more confident and more authentic to the person I actually am. Overall it has been a very transformational journey for me, there have been huge shifts in my energy and behaviour and the whole experience has been invaluable for me. 

Cristina

The sessions with Lesley have been absolutely life changing and it is amazing to have achieved the level of transformation in only 10 sessions.

The most helpful has been to achieve this sense of peace and calm, knowing life is perfect as it is in every moment. I have gained tremendous understanding and compassion for myself and others which strengthens the peace I feel and the connection I feel with myself and others.Letting go of judgements and anger towards self and others felt like a big barrier has been removed which was keeping me separated from self and others. I have really wanted to trust myself and my intuition and that has definitely happened. This is my most amazing gift to know I can now flow with life with such ease and that everything happens in my favour.I am now a confident woman who is aware of her worth, feeling very lucky with the cards I have been dealt with and I have the inner knowing that I am winning at this game of life. I am now waking up each day with joy and excited about the miracles which are unfolding in front of my eyes.

Truly magical experience!

Michaela

Lesley was recommended to me as a life coach at a time when I had several significant life events ongoing. I was in a fog and couldn’t organise my thoughts and behaviours effectively enough to see a way through. As an independent, career focused woman, this felt alien to me and I realised that I needed to invest in myself. I had never considered life coaching before; I was apprehensive and perhaps quite reluctant at first.

However, any fears that I may have had were allayed within minutes of meeting Lesley. All sessions were online as a result of the impact of COVID19, and therefore it is an even greater testament to Lesley as she made me feel comfortable, empowered and I knew immediately I could trust her with my innermost thoughts and feelings – something I have rarely said about anyone before, never mind a complete stranger!

Over the sessions Lesley expertly questioned and helped me to find my own solutions to the various problems I was facing. She was completely non-judgmental and at no point did she impose her own thoughts/beliefs on to me. The way she was able to challenge my thought processes, blockers and challenges to achieving my goals was skilful to say the least! 

I have taken a range of things away from our sessions. Lesley has helped to build my confidence, which was at an all time low. She has also supported me to think differently when trying to solve problems. Most importantly, I now appreciate the importance of investing in myself. I cannot thank Lesley enough. 

Katherine

Lesley coached me for five sessions over the last four months. Our coaching sessions began at a time in my life where I was going through a big period of change and I generally felt very lost over what to do next. Being coaching by Lesley has helped me gain clarity on the situation and build a solid action plan to start working towards achieving my new goals. I definitely wouldn’t have made the level of progress I have had I not been having coaching sessions with Lesley.

Lesley made me feel comfortable and at ease from the very first session, which meant I knew I could bring a range of goals to the session and discuss different options without fear of judgement. Lesley intutively knew when to challenge me on my goals and when to give me space to think.

I left every session with a clear, achievable action plan, which fitted perfectly into my schedule for the coming weeks and feeling empowered to take to those actions to take a real positive step towards my goals. I am so proud of all that I achieved as a result of our coaching.

Thank you so much for our sessions Lesley! I took so much from our time together and I look forward to working together again soon.

Hannah

The overall experience has been truly invaluable. Our sessions moved down a different path to what I initially expected, but this was what made it so enlightening and has now made me very excited for the future. Without Lesley’s guidance I feel that I would have still been stuck in the same position without any clear direction.
