If only it were as simple as reading a book, or listening to a podcast. But if you’ve ever tried the DIY approach, you’ll know that the momentum fades away. You tend to focus on the surface-level problem, leaving the deeper issues unaddressed. After all, you can’t teach yourself skills you don’t have. The result? You don’t achieve the career transformation you were hoping for, and feel hopeless. But there is a better way.
Working with me as your one on one coach, I’ll help you find direction, define your goals, and take action to reach them.
Changing your career can mean many things — moving in a new direction, shifting sideways, or climbing the career ladder. I will help you clarify your career goals and take inspired action to meet them.
I hold you accountable, but it’s not all doom, gloom and tears. Your journey includes a blend of light and dark, seriousness and cheerfulness, spiritual and practical. It’s not all rainbows, but it’s often lots of fun!
If you suspect there could be more to life, and you aspire to more fulfilment, integrity, fun and success in your personal life and career, then let’s do this. If you feel that your ‘on paper’ success doesn’t align with your personal goals, it’s time to take action. You can create your future life, but it happens by choice, not by chance.
My clients are a diverse bunch—men and women of all ages, including CEOs, entrepreneurs, parents and managers. What they have in common is a desire for more connection, impact and direction.

BOOK YOUR DISCOVERY CALL
I’m an experienced career coach and mentor here to help you improve your mindset, motivation and momentum. I believe everyone has the power to change their lives. It starts with taking responsibility.
I have twelve years of experience and have worked with more than 900 clients, both as individuals and in group coaching programs. What makes my heart sing is my clients describing me as calm, welcoming and caring.
Coaching is a deeply personal commitment, so I love that many of my clients keep coming back to me for ongoing support, and they refer friends, family and colleagues to me.
I have a diploma in Transpersonal Life Coaching from Nature Care College, and I’m a certified HBDI (Human Brain Dominance Instrument) practitioner. I’m also a five-year volunteer coach with non-profit The Marketing Academy Australia.
‘With her incredible ability to understand people and their patterns and blockages, Leigh ever so gently, yet powerfully, changed my life. She guided me through a career change that is aligned with my values, my wants and needs; she supported and guided me in negotiating salary, and made me realise and understand the blockages and patterns I had within me that prevented me from having a fulfilling career, and in a lot of ways, also in my personal life.
‘Every session, Leigh whips out an Oprah a-ha moment that blows my socks off as she does it so calmly and lovingly. Investing in her coaching has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve given myself. I continue to work with Leigh, and I am so impressed and empowered after each session.’

Consider it an open conversation with someone to hold you accountable and help you create the life and career that you love, and the skills you need to live with integrity and harmony.
Instead of telling what to do, I ask insightful questions that help you form confidence in your choices, and better understand how your actions impact yourself and others. It’s not a teacher/student relationship, and I’m not here to make you do things you don’t want
to do. Instead, I’m going to help you empower you to take control, give your life direction, and improve your own wellbeing.
We’ll chat about how I can help you, especially: your specific career goals what to expect from the coaching process ensuring you feel comfortable to embark on the journey ahead
Once we agree to work together, you’ll complete a coaching agreement and profile.
We start on your coaching sessions.
A dedicated program for people, culture and HR leads, based on my decade of experience in the HR sector. Gain valuable guidance on improving employee experience and engagement scores. Review the employee lifecycle and create a plan to improve deliverability on your objectives. You’ll also learn how to recalibrate your own energy levels to turn up in an inspired, sustainable way.
Uplevel your career by improving your skills and competencies in managing others. Lead and inspire your team with clarity, greater productivity, building an effective culture and team cohesion.
Book a discovery call with me and we can discuss your needs. During our conversation, I can recommend the program that will be most suitable or how we can customise it for you.
Each program comprises monthly 90-minute coaching sessions for a minimum of six months. Many clients choose to continue working with me after the six-month program, on a quarterly or ad-hoc basis, as this helps them maintain momentum, get accountability and support.
Sadly, no. I am very invested in your success, but the action you take and the decisions you make is up to you and beyond my control.
I will send you an invoice after the discovery call. You can transfer the money into my account or transfer via Stripe from your card of choice.
If you participate in the first three coaching sessions, and do the work required, and you’re still not satisfied with the coaching experience, we can cease working together. After this stage there are no refunds, unless on compassionate grounds. The coaching agreement we enter into states that Coachees will share feedback on progress and the coaching relationship at each session, as we move through the program.
I’m sure you’ve already tried a few things, talking to friends or family, reading a few books, or a DIY program. But if you still haven’t achieved the lasting change you dream of, you need to explore a different way. When you tackle things alone, your motivation fades and you haven’t got anyone to challenge you, guide you or hold you accountable. I’ll be the cheerleader by your side, the whole way.
Working alongside a mentor is a wonderful opportunity, but it’s not the same as working with a coach. You are utterly reliant on the personality and approach of the person available, and some mentors take a more instructive approach. Mentoring can be limited to a single issue or problem, and mentors aren’t often equipped for the deep work that’s required for true transformation. Mentors tend to be wedded to their own model or approach, which may not work for you. The good thing is you can invest in coaching while also having a career mentor, giving you the best of both worlds.
