Here are the results my clients are celebrating . . .

In a world that privileges the tangible, my clients achieve the tangible results they are looking for — as well as enjoying remarkable increases in their capacity as human beings. The magnificence in the the human spirit that they express here gives me confidence that what they have developed in themselves will continue to serve well beyond the immediate scope of our work together.

Increased Capacity

Now I can connect with what is deeply meaningful to me

I’m more able to be with the flow of my emotions

I find I’m appreciating people and my accomplishments now

I can actually play and rest

I’m asking for what I need and want more directly

It came as such a surprise to realize I had to learn how to receive

I’m softening into my strength

I’m learning to pace myself and tune in to right timing

I’m holding myself accountable to what is important to me

I’m way more able to perform under pressure

I’ve learned to recognize and overcome discouragement

I’m more able to make choices in the midst of doubt and uncertainty

I find that I can speak the hard truth when needed, and do it more skillfully

I’ve got more strength in my NO and power in my YES

Effectively parking my distractions and concerns has been hugely helpful

I’m catching on to myself quicker when I’m mired in a limited view point, or even when I’ve backing myself into a corner

I’m taking those calculated risks that keep my life moving along in a creative flow

I’m working with fear so much more effectively now

My mind is becoming more nimble as I learn to shift or expand my perspective when it is needed

I’m starting to really see the opportunity in challenges

I find that I’m more able to inspire others

Learning how to set a warm and attentive tone for my team and my family has caused a sea change in what we accomplish and how much fun we have.

More able to sequence the steps and thereby maintain focus on longer term direction

I find I’m staying more true to myself and my vision in the midst of those times that seem chaotic and scary

A seasoned professional . . . . Lyedie is a delight to work with—smooth, polished, gentle and clear, stepping in at just the right moment with observations and guiding questions to help bring a muddy thought to a crystal-clear statement . . . Jump at the chance to work with her.

Lyedie embodies the essence of brilliance and down-to-earth wisdom. Her elegant coaching style, intuitive sensitivity and relevant homework practices helped me embed the changes I wanted to make in my life. I felt her at my back with open-hearted presence and always sharp as a tack as I stepped into my new way of being. I have a deep respect for the sound methods she uses to get results, they work! I am now living my life with more grace and less stress. If you have something you're ready to change in your life, put yourself in Lyedie’s capable hands. 

Helaine Iris, Path of Purpose, Spofford NH

 

Lyedie has shown me how to see myself with more clarity and catch on to the ways that I'm thwarting what I really want for myself. . . . . Lyedie is wise, insightful and really on my side.  She has a wealth of knowledge and her tool kit appears to be bottomless!  Lately, I’ve been thinking of her as my secret weapon.

Chela Davison,  Director of Leadership & Innovation, Integral Coaching Canada

The work we did together two years ago just keeps on giving. I return to it often, continually amazed at the practical wisdom that was born out of our sessions together . . . . I’m not sure I’ve ever felt so seen, or so able to make such a profound shift in my approach to life.

M.L. Psychologist and University Professor, New Haven, CT

 

I began working with Lyedie at a point when I was finding it harder and harder to connect with my creative spirit, causing a downward spiral that was radiating out into my life. Her complete attention and fascination with my concerns, paired with her knowledge of the human psyche and belief in the realm of possibility has spurred me to rediscover and embrace even the smallest sparks within – honoring the obstacles and . . . now I’m stepping beyond them.
