Open arms and a warm, genuine smile will always welcome you. I will truly care about you from the get-go! Being heard is important; I'm a good listener. Feeling good about yourself and your life are key; I'll help you problem-solve and will be your biggest encourager. God has given you your own special gifts; when you use them, you'll feel more fulfilled. Together, we'll identify what they are and ways to use them. We'll have fun and laugh a lot. And we'll both be a little more Blessed than we were before we started.
I was bullied in junior high, which really affected my confidence. Through time and experience, I understand and embrace that God created us uniquely and beautifully, worthy of love, each with special gifts and purposes. I’m action-oriented and goal-driven; I think it feels great to accomplish things! But I also know how to slow down, find balance, and take care of myself.
"When I first reached out to Leigh-Leigh, I was struggling with and felt anxious about not having confidence to speak in front of groups of any size. We worked to identify my top character strengths and I was surprised to learn that one of my main strengths is social intelligence. Up until now, I had always looked at that (in the form of people pleasing) as a weakness. It's all about knowing and applying your strengths in everyday life and using them to work towards your goals. Also, it was so useful to learn how to quiet the negative voice (Satan) in my head, who tells me to be nervous, anxious, or that I can't/shouldn't do something. Because of our work together, I've noticed there is less anxiety leading up to group meetings/social gatherings. I'm actually looking forward to them! I no longer feel the need to tell people "I'm nervous" about something, hoping to get out of it. I've learned tools to keep myself positive and focused on my goals, short term and long term. I now have more clarity about confidence. I feel more prepared for situations where I need to speak in group settings and I experience less negative-self-talk leading up to it. I look forward to meeting my goals and know how I can achieve them. The work I did with Leigh-Leigh is helping me work towards gaining more knowledge in my field so that I can have confidence when speaking with clients and team members. I'm hoping this will eventually help me to advance in my career, which will in turn, lead me on the path towards achieving my future goals for myself and my family. Leigh-Leigh's positive energy is contagious! She asks the right questions to meet you right where you are and provides space for you to feel comfortable opening up and being honest with yourself. I looked forward to and enjoyed each of our classes and the assignments that went along with coaching. I had many ah-ha moments during this and she opened my eyes to how I view myself and my strengths, which has improved my self-talk and confidence. She truly lives out what she teaches and is someone I look to as a role model in my life. I know that there is always something more I can work on in myself and it's a good feeling to know that when I'm ready I have someone in my corner, prepared to help!" -Carolyn W.
"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!" -Keith B.
"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!" -Kristin M.
