"The sessions gave me the ability to build up confidence and courage to overcome any situation of my life and of others in need of my help and support"

"I learned to think 'deeper' about myself and be more aware of my thoughts and what they might mean" 

"Mentoring taught me how to change lives, which I never imagined to do in my life"

 

"I have achieved how to be a good person also how to stand on your own like how to hold different situations. And the best is I'm successful as a mentor and that is the greatest thing ever in my life I have achieved" 

ELMOS, USA, 2020

"Working with Leah has been a great blessing to me. She has been remarkably supportive, gentle and compassionate yet skillfully adept at helping me focus on what is really important to me, what stands in my way and what next steps I want and need to take to accomplish my goals. She is a great listener. I really feel heard, and that has been key to my trusting the coaching process. And she has fantastic, creative ideas that I've found eye-opening, simple and practical...Things began to fall into place, largely, I think, because Leah is so tuned in to the needs and inspiration of the moment. I definitely recommend her if you are looking for great listener, you’ll be in great hands if you decide to work with her."

ANNA, SOCIAL WORKER, HUNGARY, 2020

Coming from the field of counselling and education myself, it has always been a challenge for me to find a professional who I would completely give my trust to work on my life and goals. I believe it is never merely about the tools that one can have, but the personality of a coach or therapist.

Leah is definitely someone who feels the vibe of her clients instinctly and can adjust to their specific needs without any effort. She shows an outstanding amount of empathy towards people and she is very up-to-date with the latest coaching techniques. Her positive remarks during the sessions, her warm support and the way she communicates make her clients feel safe and understood. She is undoubtedly good at making people get over their obstacles and see them clearly as well as encouraging them to act and overcome their struggles. She does it in a gentle way without any judgement or urging her clients. To my view, Leah as a coach can be a bridge between people and their best possible self...

KAY, YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR, GERMANY, 2019 

"The coaching sessions with Leah were very helpful. When I was feeling overwhelmed and undermotivated, she helped me to get back in touch with my values and with my passion for what I’m doing. Leah helped me to believe again that I have the strength and the skills to succeed during difficult times. The best thing about the sessions was that I felt that Leah was 100% in my corner and that she genuinely cared and understood me.

TESTIMONIAL

CHARITY DIRECTOR

EMILY, UK, 2020

"Leah's support is fantastic! She is very good at recognising the challenges individuals face. Through her coaching she helped me identify my vision and understand why I make decisions in the way I do. In understanding that I'm very goal driven I became more self aware in my behaviours and it has enabled me to feel less stressed in trying to achieve those goals".
