When I started coaching with Leigh-Leigh, I was feeling overwhelmed with so many responsibilities. I was feeling like I wasn’t doing anything very well--just enough to get by with my parenting, work, friendships, etc. What was most surprising to me was that she helped me see that I don’t have to try to fix everything at once. Even making one or two small changes can really make a big impact. I have definitely been able to make some positive changes as a result of our working together. I’m putting less pressure on myself to be “perfect.” I’ve been setting aside dedicated, individual time with each of my children. This has felt “freeing” to me!

 

It has helped me be more creative with work, my kids, and my significant other. And it has helped improve my relationships all around.

 

Coaching with Leigh-Leigh was something to look forward to! Coaching was an eye-opening experience. I really enjoyed the exercises and they helped me recognize strengths that I forgot I had. And that there are things I can do to move past my past into a brighter future. As a coach, she is encouraging, helpful, and challenging. She asked good questions that made me think and got me out of my comfort zone. Each session, she followed up on the previous week’s assignments and held me accountable for things I was supposed to do. Leigh-Leigh’s personality is energetic, supportive, loving and genuine -- all things that make her a great coach!

I absolutely loved working with Leigh-Leigh. I had been really struggling with my confidence in starting my business. Leigh-Leigh held space for me and allowed me to vocalize every limiting belief I had surrounding my lack of confidence. She then followed with a series of questions that really made me think. The ultimate Ah-ha moment I had was when she challenged me to think about a specific time in my life I faced similar confidence issues. How did I attack it and what did it look like on the other side? That was all I needed and I was on my way!
 

Leigh-Leigh not only coached me with technique but she coached me with her heart. She genuinely cared about the issues I was having and wanted to walk along side me to overcome my obstacles. I would recommend Leigh-Leigh to anyone who is looking to be coached and is ready to take action. She is a true professional with a huge heart!

Leigh-Leigh helped me realize I don't have to stay in a toxic work environment. I need to do what is best for me & give myself grace. She helped me see that a positive mindset can change your life!

Rebecca McWatters, Tasmania

I began working with Leigh-Leigh when I was struggling with my life purpose, my career path and exploring the best ways in which I can contribute to the world. I was stuck in my life with a lot of possibilities but unsure of taking those first steps to discovery.

 

I have had so many “aha” moments for myself in working with Leigh-Leigh over the last year with her as my coach. The biggest and most sustaining moments are related to her enabling me to explore the metaphors I use for myself and how I see my world. She creates a safe place for my exploration and curiosity, and I never feel alone in my exploring. She provides me with her observations of myself through this process and these have helped strengthen how I see myself. I can see myself in a greater capacity and from new perspectives and love myself better with more peace, appreciation, and celebration.

In my time working with Leigh-Leigh, I have changed my relationship with myself. I see myself differently with a greater appreciation of how I operate, what I bring to the world and what is possible for me in my life.

 

Leigh-Leigh has helped me shift a significant personal issue that I have let hold me back from fully owning my choices. At some point I was ready and willing to explore this issue and perhaps nervous as well. I was also unsure if it was possible that I could make changes. She created a place that was safe and free of judgement, such that I could explore with honesty, and disrupt my old beliefs with integrity. I have shifted so much in my life from these sessions. I have made progress towards the outcomes I was interested in achieving, but really it was shifting the relationship to this issue that I carried within me that created the greatest change. So of course, my desired outcome has already begun arriving in my life. I am forever grateful to Leigh-Leigh for coaching me in this issue.

 

I now have clarity about my future possibilities. This has an enormous impact on my well-being, confidence and ability to see what is possible for me in the future. I also feel ownership over my choices in my life and ownership over my future choices.

As a result of our work together, what’s next for me in my life is growing big and full in the forest that is the metaphor for my life. It is fully claiming my worth and value. It is asking for what support I need. And it is making the shifts toward a new career and more certainty in me.

 

Leigh-Leigh is full of fun and love. Of light and wisdom. Coaching with her is a place of positivity, possibility and productivity. She welcomes your challenging issues with grace and excitement; and then I leave feeling so much better and ready! And she lands so many great questions that are useful to me.

As a coach Leigh-Leigh is: AWESOME, REAL, TRUTHFUL, KIND, COMPASSIONATE, KNOWS HER STUFF, SAVED ME, and most importantly an ANGEL IN DISGUISE.

Coya Gonzales, NV

One of the most transformative parts of working with Leigh-Leigh was that she reminded me of how far I’ve come and how accomplished I am. She encouraged me to stop beating myself up with negative self-talk. During our work together, and since, I’ve been able to stop and listen to the words I think and say; to remember my own special, personal strengths; and to plug into them, using them as often as possible. It’s so empowering to have clarity about how I feel about myself and how I treat myself. It has made me stronger in business and in my life/personal relationships by creating boundaries that work for me.

I met with Leigh-Leigh because I was overwhelmed with life...I had too much on my plate. I was taking myself off the list and not good job balancing it at all. I worked way too much and had little personal time. Over time, I made conscious choices to reduce responsibilities to a manageable level. 

I knew I had some areas where I was stuck. Leigh-Leigh's questions and observations helped me change some pathways in my brain. I love her concept of recalibrating, broadening and building on strengths, and working on communication, conflict and boundaries.

Leigh-Leigh is personable, caring, respectful, encouraging, positive and wise. I would definitely recommend her services.

S.L., Illinois

I started life coaching with Leigh-Leigh because I was generally overwhelmed with every part of my life. I wanted to set boundaries and achieve or find balance, as well as put a plan into place to move forward. Working with her helped me achieve these goals.

 

Leigh-Leigh made me feel heard and not judged. I felt the coaching assignments were doable and not overwhelming, when I was already overwhelmed with everything that was happening in my life.

 

After finishing our coaching engagement, I am recognizing that I do still have the insight and power to change what is not working for me. Leigh-Leigh really helped me realize that small steps add up over time. I know I cannot change everything overnight, but I can take steps to start to work towards positive outcomes.

 

Leigh-Leigh gave me validation that made me feel my issues/concerns were not insignificant and that was comforting. I can’t change or modify everything at once. But I am able to take small steps to start putting order and balance back in my life.

 

What’s next for me as a result of our coaching is, “Cleaning the closet,” shall we say, of people who are not great in my world and moving away from the toxicity they bring in my work space. I’m trying to keep my head down and push through what I have to do to get what I need.

 

Leigh-Leigh is non-judgmental. I felt I could tell her the truth, regardless of how ridiculous it may have sounded. She helped me make plans for how to move forward and not stay in the same place.

I started working with coach Leigh-Leigh because I was experiencing low confidence in my job search; I was having trouble prioritizing my job search; and I also needed some accountability in getting my resume re-built. 

 

One of the most transformative parts of my experience working with Leigh-Leigh is that, in general, my confidence increased.  I was able to concentrate and meet the goals I had set for myself. She also helped me create a positive outlook towards the career I was launching.

 

As a result of our time together, I am able to process my thoughts better; I’m not as quick to go into a negative spiral; and I’m more open and communicative now with my feelings. One of my biggest goals was for my wife and I to move out of my parents’ house, and we did it! Leigh-Leigh’s and my work together brought me to a place of being able to really focus on moving up the career ladder. Also, on balancing hobbies, life, and work. 

 

Leigh-Leigh is genuinely caring. She is very focused on working with the client, as a team, to accomplish the goals that are set.
