If I had to describe my coaching experience with Ashlea in 3 words they would be: Focused. Inspiring. Motivating.
When I first connected with Ashlea I had just began a new phase of life in that my
youngest child recently started school, so after a number of years of being a full-time stay-at-home-Mum, I suddenly had a lot more time to myself. I had ideas, dreams, and aspirations, and I was very excited for this new phase, but I was unclear about exactly what to do and how to go about it, and I wanted to make the most of the momentum that this new phase had created. I also had a specific project that I wanted to work on that I had floundered with for a long time, and so I was looking to re-commit and makeprogress. So essentially, I had ideas about wanting to make the most of this exciting new opportunity in my life to devote to my purpose, but I had no framework for how to actually make it happen.
Going into my first session I was very excited! Also kind of scared, because I knew that with someone on “my team”, I didn’t have an escape route from committing to my dreams! By the end of that first session I had a specific goal – something that I’ve never been great at crystallising for myself – and it felt so good! It wasn’t intimidating, boring, or threatening, which is how I’ve related to goals in the past – it was inspiring and exciting!
The biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is a much stronger ability to observe my thoughts and recognise them as not necessarily being the truth, and as such not allowing them to derail me from pursuing my goals or taking actions. I’ve been a student of mindfulness for a few years now, but the experience of coaching and some of the homework I completed forced me to stop and take notice of these things, even to write them down. If I hadn’t done the coaching, there wouldn’t have been that specific prompt to remember to observe my thoughts. Also, some of the homework I committed to brought up lots of egoic thoughts, and I found that I didn’t want to complete it. But because I had committed to completing it and Ashlea would hold me accountable, I recognised the thoughts for what they were and pushed through the resistance anyway. If I hadn’t had that accountability, it would have been so easy to believe the thoughts and allow them to stop me from doing what I set out to do.
Ashlea, you were very professional, reliable, and dedicated. You were also incredibly kind and supportive, and you gave me the gift of believing in me so that I could find that for myself. The series gave me a framework to make things happen rather than for generalised ideas to continue rolling around in my head, which has been the case in the past.
I feel that I’ve come an incredibly long way in believing that I CAN create the life that I desire, and in discovering exactly what it IS that I desire. I’m not satisfied that these words accurately convey how meaningful that is – it’s like new worlds of possibility have opened up for me, all because of the inquiry that you encouraged me to make within myself. That is quite incredible.
I’m incredibly grateful x

When I first started my sessions with Ashlea I was overwhelmed, close to burn out and having a hard time finding the clarity I needed to move forward in the areas of health and business. I felt like I had no time for the daily tasks I had, let alone everything I wanted to accomplish in the business area of my life. I wanted to get clear on my business idea and the steps I needed to take it to the next level and I wanted to make big shifts in my health and specifically eating the right foods.
I hadn’t worked with a coach before and am actually studying life coaching myself so I had a rough idea what to expect but Ashlea far exceeded my expectations. I knew when I first spoke to Ashlea that she would be the perfect fit for what I wanted to achieve. I was excited to get started. I had reached a point in my life where I knew it was time to make the shifts that I needed to make. At the same time I felt anxious, overwhelmed and unclear about my goals and desired outcomes.
Since I started coaching with Ashlea, the biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is that I have noticed that I am not sweating the small stuff. My stress levels have decreased considerably and I have a new sense of clarity and purpose. I have made small but significant changes in my business and my health and have a renewed sense of optimism towards both. My loved ones have commented to me that I appear less stressed and more focused.
Thank you Ashlea!!! A huge big Thank You. Ashlea made me aware of my ability to trust myself and go forward with my dreams. Ashlea held space for me in such a loving and sacred way. I wouldn’t be where I am now without her help. Thank you!!

When I started coaching with Ashlea I had just moved to the US from Haiti and I was in major life transition. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my work or relationships. I was struggling with accepting myself and my current life circumstances and my life at the time had no clear direction. I had never worked with a life coach before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect and I didn’t know if she could really help me with my problems.
Before my first session with Ashlea I just had a vague desire to change but no structure. Ashlea supported me to establish clear goals, which I’ve learnt is the only way to accomplish them. Since working with Ashlea I have had a huge increase in self-love and self-acceptance which has dramatically changed every aspect of my life. I’m more confident in my abilities and more kind to myself in my weaknesses. I’m able to establish clear boundaries in all my relationships, which was always difficult before. Honestly I’m soooo surprised at how much we were able to accomplish in just 6 sessions. My family is so proud of all that I have accomplished on a personal and career basis in such a short time. It never would have happened so fast without the coaching series and it far surpassed my expectations!
Ashlea was seriously made for this. Her sweet demeanour and understanding attitude made it easy to truly open up about some really challenging personal struggles. She provided such a safe and structured environment that allowed me to change my thought patterns and ultimately change my life. She was so encouraging when I was too hard on myself and made me feel like she honestly cared about me. With her guidance I was able to think outside the box and now I have a clear direction for my life that I’m absolutely excited about!
Ashlea has such a beautiful soft energy about her that I felt so connected to and felt so comfortable around. She was able to provide a loving and safe space to open up to my truth and really start to take the steps to owning my power and connecting back to my light. She was able to bring about something in me that
I never knew was there, she was able to inspire a vision for my business and help uncover what was sitting there all along. Through her I learnt so much about myself and not only did I start to really believe in myself, I felt a real shift within my core. I found not only an incredible life coach in Ashlea, but I found a friend. She will always hold a special place in my heart… for believing in me, pushing me, inspiring and really seeing me.
