I met Leila when I was at a really pivotal and transitional point in my career, for the first time feeling that I could benefit from the guidance, advice and support coaching could offer. Upon completing our first session I was absolutely convinced I was making the right decision, and we set off on an 8 month partnership of regular sessions. Leila has a style that always keeps one eye on the objectives you’ve set yourself, but mixes it with her hugely natural and very personable manner. She really invests in the people she works with – I wasn’t fortunate enough to know her in the media part of her career, but it really feels like she was made to be executive coach. I got a massive amount from our sessions, and having recently achieved the specific objective we were working towards, I can say a huge amount of that positive end result is down to our work together. She comes very highly recommended - thank you, Leila.

In the eye of the Covid-lockdown storm I was fortunate to be introduced to and embark upon a journey with Leila; and a true journey it has been. Unlike any previously billed ‘coaching’ hers is a style that challenges all my previous experiences and has joyfully exceeded any expectations. While evidently knowledgeable in the theoretical discipline it is Leila’s refreshing ability to humanise that knowledge and positively provoke through a mix of tasks, discussion, reflection and focus; creating an at times uncomfortable but powerful energy that you have to act upon. This is not indulgent ‘where do you want to be in 5 years?’ coaching, This is grown up, ultimately human, dangerously potent, outcomes based coaching. In summary, a wholly positive experience, quite profound and something I wish I was able to experience some years ago, ces’t la vie.

Controller, UK Broadcaster

Leila is a genuinely engaged, warm and empathetic listener. This gave her the tools to draw out insights from me, some small and some life-changing. I cannot recommend her highly enough, our sessions offered me a chink of light in challenging times and I always came away feeling optimistic and inspired.

Leila explains her approach to coaching

My role is to help you (or you and your employees) build confidence to deal with whatever challenges you’re/they’re facing, whilst providing structured thinking around what steps to take next.

Through a combination of good old fashioned listening, thoughtful questioning, and coaching tools, I empower my clients to believe in themselves, grab the bull by the horns, leap into the breach, take the plunge...and become the best version of themselves.
