"It can often feel lonely as a female leader but having a wonderful coach in Leah, who is there to talk through things honestly and openly, has helped me identify and respond to difficulties creatively. Our sessions are challenging but she is also able to make them fun! I always walk away with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for my work. I have loved Leah’s warm and empathetic approach. I find her style very engaging and would fully recommend coaching with Leah.”
“As a psychologist and L7 executive coach myself, I was immediately impressed with Leah's qualifications, personal coaching purpose and style of discussion. Our initial meeting was exceptionally helpful in supporting the actions I needed to take to help move me towards a decision; and the continued support was first class. I would reach out to Leah again for personal and professional development coaching without hesitation.”
Dr Natalie Campbell
Psychologist, Academic, Consultant
"I have experienced and recommended Leah’s gift for coaching many times because she is able to combine neuroscience and a highly sophisticated range of coaching techniques. She’s a coach who keeps studying, developing and learning, so uses multi- layered approaches tailored to fit the client.
She is able to communicate verbally better than any coach I have worked with. You will find Leah to be magnetic. She is a gifted coach. Ethical, boundaried and the best solutions-focused coach around in my view."
Business Owner, Equitable Coaching
“Leah very effectively drew out the main issues, was able to frame them in a manageable way and really, astonishingly, got to the heart of the problem very quickly. Leah’s coaching strategies have been really effective in helping me to see my own involvement in the dynamics of my team. I have been reflecting on this and now adapt my behaviours in situations. I am so much more aware of my need to be assertive and to deal with issues as they arise. Leah has shown we can all use strategies to have better relationships in work. ”
Deputy Head Teacher
“I absolutely recommend coaching with Leah. Her coaching has given me the opportunity to reflect on my business in a more objective way. It has helped me develop a more strategic approach to the growth and direction of my business.
Leah has shown me that I need to be proud of what I have achieved. She made me feel more positive about my abilities. I now have a much clearer idea of where I need to go long term with Fuchsia Beauty and have a ‘daring to dream’ vision for it. She has enabled me to have clarity and a different way of looking at things. What’s more, my clients are seeing results and my business has grown! ”
Business Director, Fuchsia Beauty
“Leah provides coaching that supports way beyond the coaching sessions. I now feel like I have not just a coach but a critical friend who really cares for my development. The impact of her coaching shows in my every day work. Her understanding of how we learn has helped me progress in ways that will never leave me. Incredible value for money in terms of the impact it has made to my business.”
