Breathing Space

Whatever you want your life to look like

Whatever you think is holding you back

Whatever your Big Sacred Dream is

I know you have what it takes to get there

The Challenge

I spend a lot of time up in my head. I overthink and second-guess myself. I’m an expert at bullying and berating myself when things aren’t perfect.

I’m a people-pleaser and I don’t know how to say no. I often do things for people that I don’t want to and then resent them for it.

I hate my job and all the stress. I’d love to do something else, something more fulfilling, I just don’t know what.

Sometimes I think I’m not good enough and sometimes I’m think I’m too much. I can sense the power inside of me. I’d love to be able to step into that in a way that feels good.

I’d love to start a heart-centred business that’s an expression of who I am but I’m afraid to put myself out there and be visible.

I feel stuck in life while everyone around me has got their act together. I’m afraid of what other people would think if I showed the real me and followed my dreams and soul’s callings.

My life would be just fine if other people would change! How do I deal with difficult relationships (professional and personal)?

As an introvert or highly sensitive person, I  feel like I don’t fit in and I want to know how to be more confident and comfortable in my own skin without compromising who I am.

My life is ok, but I spend a lot of time doing things I don’t really want to do. I would like life to be much more fun and light-hearted but that just doesn’t seem possible.

The Practical

You have something you want to create: a Big Sacred Dream.

You have a goal, or dream or you hear your soul calling. You’re procrastinating and going round in circles or you’ve made some progress but you’ve hit a wall. Either way you’ve been stuck but the pain of staying still is much greater than the fear of moving forward – even if you don’t feel ready! You need help to cut through the mental clutter and take action your way.

You might not know exactly what you want – your first goal might be to work that out.

You want direction, clarity and confidence.

The Spiritual

You want to create a new way of being

You’re a master at censoring and restricting yourself. You feel disconnected from the truth of who you are, weighed down by worries, doubt, stress and busyness. Add to that the feeling of not being good enough and it’s exhausting. Life feels empty, lacking meaning or purpose.  You need help to connect to your soul and  feel safe expressing more of who you are and live life true to yourself.

You want ease, peace and joy.

The Results

Working with me will give you the space and time to slow down and move past self-doubt. Your ego is not very creative. It comes up with the same old stories of lack and fear. You’ll slow down and get present so that you see things you couldn’t see before. You’ll shift the focus from your inner critic to your inner wisdom. You will connect to your truth and power and hear a new story of possibility. 

We’ll identify the thinking that’s getting in the way and you’ll cut through the overwhelm and confusion. I’ll help you find the path that’s right for you so you can move forward with ease.

You’ll live a life true to yourself and not the one your inner critic wants you to.

The Logistics

This is a 6 month 1:1 Coaching Relationship.

This is Breathing Space.

It’s a container for you to do the soul work of asking

  • what makes me feel excited and energised
  • how do I want to feel when I’m living an inspired life
  • what is calling to me that won’t leave me alone

And it’s where you come to honour all of who you are, working with your true nature and not against it.

Our first session will be a two hour deep dive into what you want, why you think you don’t have it already and what you’re really excited about showing up for and creating in your life. Subsequent sessions will be around 90 minutes. We’ll have 3 sessions a month with one week for rest and reflection.

Breathing Space sessions are tailored to your individual needs, but what often comes up are how your confidence, self-care, environment and closest relationships support or defeat you. So we might start there, building from the ground up.

The way I work is to hold space for you in a nourishing environment, where you can bring all your feelings and be fully seen and heard. Given space to come through, your own wisdom will take you most of the way. With time and space you’ll be able to give yourself permission to want what you want and to make progress towards it in your own way.

But I’ll also be there to help you see your blind spots, to show you how your thinking is creating your results and challenge you into a new way of being. If you’re open to it I’ll use oracle cards or visualisation as a way to connect to source energy and make an even deeper connection with your own wisdom.

My expertise is in creating the space for you to see things from a new perspective that frees you to fully express yourself and to take action from that new way of being.

The investment is £1,000. As well as your commitment to play full out.

I have had (lots of) coaching where I have been pushed to go faster and deeper than I was willing to go. I don’t want that for you. This is not a bootcamp. This is a sacred and safe space, maybe the first one you’ve ever had, where you can talk about what really matters to you in a judgment free zone. My only agenda is to support you and take you where you want to go. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever challenge you. I’ll support you going at a pace that’s right for you, but challenge you to go faster than you would on your own. Otherwise what’s the point, right?

Laura was a great help to me as I was going through some big life changes. I was changing my career, going through a separation and struggling to juggle all of the things that needed to get done while still taking care of myself and my daughters. Laura was a patient and supportive coach while I worked through sorting out what mattered to me and found the courage to take action on the things that needed to be done, like setting up my business and quitting a low paying job. Her calm persistence and ability to create a safe space in the coaching call allowed me to discover what would help me move forward even if I was afraid.
Laura is an exceptionally skilled coach. She has a natural capacity to make her clients at ease, to bring their whole selves including their fears, their sadness, their grief and their struggles. At the same time she holds space for growth and celebration as well as time for quiet reflection, something often missing in the crazy busy worlds in which we live. For me, Laura supported me in facing self doubt and walked me through anticipatory grief around losing my mom. She was gentle, kind, encouraging and real. As a mom of small kids, who struggles to allow others to "take care" of me, Laura gave me space to be myself, dark side included, in a judgment-free zone.
