I was coached by Lesley once a week for 6 weeks earlier this year. When we first began the coaching sessions I was very uncertain and worried about my short-term and long-term future, with no guidance or plan in place. Lesley helped me evaluate where I was at, where I wanted to be and how I could get there. Together we worked to find a path and career that would suit me based on my skill set, values and abilities, and Lesley was exactly right with what she recommended. She guided me with valuable advice, from day to day tips if my mood was low, to long term goal setting and motivation.

In the short amount of time Lesley coached me, I have seen a major difference in both my outlook on my journey in life and I have far, far more belief in myself that I will achieve my goals and get to where I want to be. Lesley combines a personable, warm coaching style with a wealth of knowledge on life advice and know-how which made me feel at ease the entire time we worked together. Although Lesley and I only met for one hour a week, I always felt as though she was truly invested in my progress and that meant a lot to me.

I could not recommend Lesley enough for anyone wanting a ‘push’ in life, guidance on a new journey or life advice on any topic. She is an exceptional coach.

I recently had the privilege of experiencing coaching services provided by Lesley and it has truly exceeded my expectations in every way.

Lesley took the time to understand my journey and the challenges I faced with starting in a new role. This level of attention made me feel valued and motivated throughout the process.
The insights and advice I gained were invaluable. They helped me navigate through that daunting time of settling into a brand-new environment.  I felt I was in capable hands every step of the way.
The practical tools and resources provided by Lesley were a winner for me and are now a tremendous asset.

My biggest takeaway was the tangible results I achieved with her guidance.  Those results were effectively a smooth transition with very positive feedback. The support I received was a key factor in this success, and I'm incredibly grateful for the role she has played in this.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Lesley’s service to anyone seeking support with a transition to a new role. My experience has been nothing short of transformative, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

"Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a coach during a program which assisted women to return to the workplace with confidence. Whilst I could have worked with any of the other coaches I spoke with, Lesley just stood out to me. She was warm and welcoming and from our first meeting, I knew I had made the right choice - she just 'got' me. Lesley is ultra passionate about helping people to push past the barriers (most often ourselves) to reach their potential but not in any way overpowering or judgemental. She listened intently and respectfully to me and was able to rephrase my thoughts and intentions back to me in a way that I had not thought of before. I had many 'Aha' moments during our sessions and they were all positive experiences. Whilst coaching is looking forward, not backwards, inevitably our mindsets and paradigms are based on our past experiences and Lesley allowed me to comfortably reference past experiences but not dwell on them, instead to  put them into perspective in terms of how they could serve me going forward. On many occasions, Lesley referred back to things I had said in a previous session so she was always engaged in my overall story. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her coaching style to anyone who may be unsure about taking that next step!"

“I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend the coaching skills of Lesley at CHR. You will be pleasantly surprised at how concrete observations and objectives will arise from very relaxed and gentle discussions. Nearly all of us have become consumed by the rat race of our time and simply forgot to ask ourselves certain things. Perhaps it is too easy to overlook those thoughts and ideas and park them up? Lesley helped me to take a moment, see the big picture and most importantly
identify what it is in life that really makes me tick. I suppose that sounds simple, but clearly it was not since never before did I have such a raw and truthful look at myself. I cannot thank her enough for the impact of the coaching on my day to day life and my overall perspective.

“As an adult male approaching forty years of age, I never imagined how much I could learn about myself as a result of Lesley’s coaching. She has a wonderful and empathetic style of questioning and also listening that somehow extracted an incredible volume of thoughts and reflection from me. I would highly recommend her service to anyone, and you can rest assured that if you work with her, you are in safe and productive hands.“

“I was a bit unsure as to what my next steps were from a career view and personal view. I had some ideas about what I wanted to do but never really sat down and went through them in my head, and therefore never got anywhere with them. Since doing the coaching sessions with Lesley, I have found more clarity on what I want to do and what direction I am going. There were some tough questions I needed to answer but by taking time in the sessions, walking away to give some thought and just saying things out loud, the sessions began to give me clarity. Since completing the coaching sessions with Lesley, I have applied for my masters, joined committees in my workplace and joined a sports team in my local community. I never thought about doing coaching sessions in the past but Lesley’s sessions have given me direction and drive to progress from a career and a personal point of view. I will certainly be going back to her if I need again”.
