Before working with Lael I felt held back by my dysfunctional past. I had old behaviors that were not getting me what I wanted out of life. After working with Lael, I have been able to overcome old, automatic reactions. I understand myself better. I am starting to become the woman I always wanted to be. The value of her coaching is undeniable. I am extremely grateful to have worked with her and to have my life moving forward like it is now.
Coaching with Lael is always a compelling and thought-provoking experience. Her direct approach is imbued with a deep sense of compassion. With her ongoing support and feedback, I've been able to undertake deep personal change and achieve growth in my career and my personal life.
I used to numb out with alcohol and food when I was stressed or anxious. Now I have other ways to cope. Coaching has helped me practice self-love and self-care in new ways. It helps me stay motivated and focused on who I want to become instead of stuck being who I've always been.
It's hard to admit that we all need help. Sometimes it's talk therapy, other times it's coaching and usually it's just someone who is good at listening to you. I now recognize that in the same way that I need food and water, I also need a coach to support me in my journey to find purpose in this crazy world. It's nice to know that I've got Lael!
I decided to make a big life change - to leave a job I loved and had created for myself. But the work was taking more from me than giving. I knew I needed support to stick with my decision and make it happen. Working with Lael has helped me stay connected to my deeper desires, break the transition into manageable steps, and process my emotions along the way.
As a solo entrepreneur, coaching with Lael has helped me unearth and clarify the core of my questions about how to move forward. Lael's intuitive questioning and reflective listening have sped up my growth process immensely. She has helped me not only get more organized and work through some practical organizational challenges I have but more importantly has helped me tap into my internal and emotional blocks that hinder my progress. Having the support and coaching from Lael has opened up new possibilities for my business and personal growth that I never imagined.
I think everyone should do this course to discover what self-care really means for them and then learn how to do that for the rest of their life.
Lael really gets it. She has the ability to teach you how to create the life you want to be living.
This course is unlike anything I’ve ever tried before. It’s not about being perfect or making crazy life changes. It’s about small habits that I know will stay with me.
I know the habits I've learned will always be there for me. I have made connections here that will last a lifetime.
Better self-talk wasn’t something I was expecting from this course. I hadn’t really noticed how much pressure I was putting on myself. Focusing on my small wins and allowing myself to feel proud has changed everything.
This course has been revolutionary for me. I’ve done a lot of work on myself before this and I’m seeing shifts I’ve never had before.
Learning to trust myself is one of the biggest changes from this whole process. Also, turns out I am a morning person!
Before this program, I was not prioritizing myself or my health. I was giving everything I had to my work and family. I always figured I would get to myself and my health later. Now, I feel much more ready to start this next decade – mentally and physically – because I have these new habits.
I’m always on a high when I get off our group calls. I felt stuck and isolated. Now, I have the confidence to really take care of me and my future.
When I started the program, I felt healthy enough, felt like I was keeping up with the various roles of mothering, a full time job outside of the home and being a decent partner and friend. But I had this nagging internal voice saying things such as, ‘What’s all the effort and stress for when I am just barely keeping my head above water? Isn’t there more to life? How do I get to a place where I get to work on the bigger societal issues that pull my attention?’ I didn't want any regrets and time flies by!
My physical and emotional health have benefited tremendously from this program and as a result so has the health of my family members. And, I can say this is still true several years after I took Lael’s habits course! My relationships with others and myself feel stronger and I am less conflict avoidant. This course work has helped me create space to imagine and plan in ways I didn’t before through the skills of self-care, identity evolution and habit change. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and therefore confidence about how to take care of myself (body, mind, spirit) and that has been empowering. This has influenced how I spend my time, what I say yes or no to. Additionally I’m less distracted by small physical ailments that had started to add up in my forties. My inner voice is much less judgemental. I’m reading more. I have better energy. I’ve lost weight. I haven't been bogged down by colds and allergies. I now know how to take better care of my dry skin. I have a better relationship with food, working towards one of gratitude and reciprocity. I’m using my imagination and creativity more. I’m trusting myself and others more than I was. I rarely yell at my kids anymore. I’ve made new friends, even explored different types of relationships then I had known before. I am gaining confidence in setting boundaries with others. I’m more aware of what I’m feeling in the moment and can make better decisions as a result. My work with Lael has led to greater presence, and that has slowed down how I experience time.
If something has you curious about this course, embrace that curiosity! It might require some faith in yourself and it will require putting in some effort upfront until your new habits are automated, but you will learn so much about yourself. You’ll have tools for how to make it happen, the way you want to show up for your day, and ultimately you’ll experience the positivity that happens as a result of learning these skills. The ripple you make will expand and help others!
