About me

Soulitude 7 was founded by me, Lisa-Marie, a former global law firm Chief Marketing Officer.

Following 15+ years in the demanding professional services industry, leading and directing strategy, coaching, and mentoring a diverse, international marketing & business development team, I have developed an innate desire to support others in leading a gratifying life.

Your life, your business

As I walk alongside you, you will gain a sparring partner as we look together from different perspectives. I will support, guide, encourage and challenge you to develop in the right way for you.

Often, inertia is really difficult to shift by yourself. In fact, you may end up only being able to see that, instead of what you actually need to achieve. My expertise will move you past this as we work together on simple approaches to prioritise the right life moves or business objectives and projects for you.  As you overcome your blockers, you’ll find your enthusiasm again and move forward with the path cleared and a plan of action.

The sessions over three months I had with Lisa Marie have been transformative. She provided a safe and supportive space to explore my next steps and what was mentally blocking me. Leaving me feeling more confident, with a plan as to where I'm going and some practical exercises to help me achieve that.

I will be recommending Lisa-Marie! I think she provides a non-judgmental and supportive space, with a great toolkit of ideas, exercises and tips to help the growth mindset.

Renowned for my open and practical style, I am results-focused. I provide both transformational individual and business coaching for (aspiring as well as) leaders and founders.  My wider practice includes advice, consultancy, and mentoring in these areas.

See my testimonials below for recent clients I’ve worked with and the results we’ve created together.

I offer a complimentary thirty-minute conversation that will help you to establish how our work together will get you to where you want to be. It will be a friendly chat, a cup of tea in your favourite mug, optional.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited transformational and C-Suite coach, having been within the C-Suite myself for six years, at a global law firm. I trained with Animas, the UK's leading coaching trainer. I have completed additional certifications in Positive Psychology and Mindfulness coaching too.

I combine my life experience, business acumen,  and skills to help my clients achieve their own version of success.

I have successfully recovered from burnout. I am passionate about intentional living and help my clients find their own version of personal and commercial success in a sustainable, fun way.  My solutions are bespoke.

Recent testimonials

I came to Lisa-Marie during a time when I struggled to find clarity in my life. She brought awareness and logical interpretations to challenges that I struggled to articulate. Lisa-Marie has shown me compassion, empathy and kindness when I felt at my lowest. She has helped me peel back the layers to discover – and face - my challenges with limiting self-belief. With her guidance, I am learning to rebuild confidence, treat myself with compassion and navigate back to operating from my ‘highest self’.  Marianna

I have been seeing Lisa since October for life coaching and have just looked back on my journal which I am keeping. I have found the sessions invaluable, time for me to focus and think about what is weighing most heavily on my mind.

So many life changes and Lisa Marie has helped me think about what I want to achieve. This is truly my time, no opinions, no criticism but plenty of affirmation. The hardest thing sometimes is to believe the positive things that are said. I wrote in my journal: Lisa-Marie is like a lighthouse light and I feel so much calmer and more thoughtful since I saw her “.

It was lovely to find those words and they are a true reflection of her amazing skills. I am very lucky that our paths have crossed in life. It is all true and looking back at my journal was so helpful as it is surprising how much you forgot but I had written so much down. “The diary makes me STOP and take measure and reflect “. So many prophetic words. I loved the lighthouse bit. So beautiful as lighthouses help steer you.  Maria


Lisa-Marie is good at understanding the issues you are going through by repeating what you have said and clarifying what you have said has been understood the right way. Lisa-Marie not only asks questions but also guides you by giving you a different perspective.

I would recommend Lisa-Marie. Lisa-Marie not only digs deeper by asking questions but also guides you and makes recommendations on what you can be doing to progress forward.

At a TEDx event in 2016, Stacey Flowers talks about The 5 people you need to be happy.

1. Cheerleader – to believe in you when you struggle to believe in yourself
2. Mentor – to point you in the right direction when you’re feeling lost
3. Coach – to take you out of your comfort zone so you can maximise your potential
4. Friend – to hear out your dreams and deepest desires
5. Peer – to keep you focused on the task at hand

During the sessions Lisa-Marie was an anchor for me in each of these five people that Stacey mentions. Lisa-Marie asks questions that makes you go deep inside yourself to find out those innermost feelings whatever they may be. I won’t lie, the questions did make me feel uncomfortable. As I started searching and answering those questions, it took away the negativity and opened up so many opportunities that I didn’t think was possible. Lisa-Marie is down-to-earth, friendly and provides a safe space during the sessions. Lisa-Marie always has your back. Thank you Lisa-Marie, I feel empowered.

“Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success”.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I also offer walking and talking coaching sessions in Surrey.  Being immersed in nature supports our wellbeing.  Immerse yourself in a mindful woodland experience known as forest bathing. Originating in Japan, and now one of their national health practices, shinrin-yoku (forest bath) is focused on the healing powers of nature. Clients can find walking side by side less confronting than face-to-face communication too.

Fees

From £175.00 to £575.00

Additional information

I operate a sliding scale fee, based on client type and how we work together.  We will discuss this transparently based on your needs.

Further information

The aim of a complimentary chat is for you to focus on determining if I am able to meet your needs and if we have the right kind of synergy. I hope to hear from you, to establish if I am the right coach for you.

I recommend that prospective clients speak with a range of coaches to determine the best coach for them. I am not a fan of the 'hard sell'.

I believe coaching is an honour and a privilege, let's chat,

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
