I made contact with Larney as I didn't know what direction my life was going in, I was in limbo. I wasn't sure what to expect having never done anything like this before and I am so glad I did. Since meeting Larney, I have lost weight, got a job, my confidence has increased, I smile, engage and interact with so many more people. I'm feeling stronger in myself and able to use my voice and be assertive when I've needed to be rather than being negative and defensive. I have come out of my shell. Thank you Larney.
In the last 5 years, I had gradually come to a point where I just felt like I didn’t know what my purpose and passion for life was anymore – I was lost. I lacked the drive to do anything, had a fear of trying something new, felt numb and emotionless and generally was just unhappy and unfulfilled in life. There was no major trauma or event to explain how I got to this crossroad but I knew this wasn’t living, so it was time to do something - life is too short to waste any of it. It was time to get help, find someone who could listen, guide and unlock my true potential (which I knew was hidden somewhere inside me but I couldn’t find it on my own). A friend suggested a life coach. I wasn’t sure if this would work for me, if I would have time or even if I could afford it being a single mother of 2 children. I decided to give it go – what did I have to lose. For so long I had given everything to everyone else and now it was time to invest in me. This is where the amazing Larney stepped in and began the process of transforming my life. I started feeling like the old me and began living again. She helped me find my purpose and passion and to clear the blocks that were stopping me from achieving my goals. I am so grateful to her for the guidance she has given in helping me rediscover my own empowerment and for the practical and effective exercises I can use daily to continue my journey to be the best me. My life now has focus. I still encounter challenges but no longer do I allow them to be the reason for not moving forward. Larney has given me the skills, tools and belief in myself to overcome any obstacles that come my way. A weight has been lifted and now I am free to fly.
I feel so much better after the NLP, 14 years of bitterness and hate gone in five minutes - AMAZING! Thank you Larney.
"I feel very motivated after a session with Larney. Not just with my business, but with everything as it has a knock on effect with other aspects of life. Sometimes the things that have stopped me from moving forward in my business have been personal issues like confidence, so some of our sessions focus on this area. I think one of the most important things is that I feel very comfortable with Larney – she is warm, trustworthy and I get results. She made me realise that I have the answers within, but sometimes life gets overwhelming and chaotic and you get a bit lost…she is so great in guiding me and putting me back on the right track. She is truly fantastic at what she does!"
"Larney has an incredible knack for being able to get to the route of whatever issue or problem it is that you may have. She does this in a way that leads “you” to find the solution. I have done both the workshop and the 1 on 1 session and have absolutely gained valuable insight into various areas that I can work on to achieve both my professional and life goals. Can not recommend this service highly enough!"
"I’ve attended a group workshop as well as an individual 1:1 session with Larney, both helped me open my mind and was in a safe space. Larney has a real gift for asking the right questions (that I never would have thought of) to get to an answer/solution that makes perfect sense afterwards. If you're feeling a bit life-stuck in some way then reach out to Larney, you’ll wish you did it sooner!!"
I had 1-1 coaching with Larney as I was feeling stuck and was looking for support with working through my career direction.
I learnt so much about my saboteur/inner critic and strategies for not letting this get in the way of me pursuing what is important to me.
Larney is really skilled at breaking down tasks into achievable actions, setting out of session activities for self growth and self awareness, and providing honest feedback and encouragement.
Larney is warm, friendly and motivating and I found the FaceTime sessions just as beneficial as Face-Face.
Thank you Larney, I found our sessions so beneficial, and you have helped me gain so much clarity!
I was actively looking for answers when I found Larney. I knew I wasn’t happy, but I also knew wasn’t depressed and I didn’t want to go to the GP for blanket-diagnosis medications. I was stuck in a rut and had lost all the colour from my life. I needed to find it again, quickly!
I was going through the motions doing what I thought were the ‘right’ things to get ahead. I was “operating in survival mode” and had reached the point where I didn’t know why or what for. I lacked purpose and had completely lost my lust for life. I felt lost, and alone and scared.
I was doing all the things I was supposed to, according to the internet and the self-help books, I was joining apps and meeting new people and had recently joined a new gym and completed qualifications in extracurricular activates... I was single and dating, shopping, accepting invitations to anything and everything, booking holidays with my friends… I was getting up in the morning to exercise and go to work and my weekends were filled up with social activities... I was “living my best life!” but something was missing and I just couldn’t put my finger on it. I wasn’t happy. I was unfocussed at work, feeling more and more disconnected from my friends and family, sick of being single, sick of dating apps, sick of self-help books, sick of turning up just to go home empty and sick of being unable to shake the feeling that that my self-guided “self-help” endeavours were fruitless.
I was confident that I knew who I was. I’d “done the work”. I’d seen psychologists, I’d unpacked my childhood, I understood my values and my triggers… which was all great but it didn’t solve my current problem of “So what?”. Put simply, I lacked the tools and techniques required to help me move forwards with my life.
So one random day, I typed something like “help, save me?” into Google and before I knew it I was researching “life coaching” which conjured up the lovely Larney!
Larney was gorgeous from the moment I met her. We met at a local café and I remember feeling so self-indulged and apologising to her as I bawled my way through my life story, explaining away the events of the last 30-odd years which had led me to my current situation. I remember feeling ridiculous and embarrassed that I had just consumed an hour of her time listing a ream of “first world problems” about a life which was making me miserable but I knew many would give their right arm for.
Larney was fantastic and said without hesitation that she knew she could help me. She made it perfectly clear that if I wanted results, that I would have to do the work. She wasn’t there to fix or save me, she was there to support and guide me by providing me with the tools and techniques I needed to find myself.
We set about booking regular, structured catch ups and between each I was given “homeplay” – homework that should be fun! Larney uses a range of different coaching techniques and tailors them to her client’s individual needs. I found the NLP therapy and saboteur work particularly helpful for breaking down years of conditioning and building newer, healthier thought patterns. The Homeplay was actually really fun and the more I practiced what I was learning, the more aware I became of who I am, when to challenge myself, when to be kind to myself, how to show up to difficult situations to get the best outcome, how to notice my saboteurs and work with them in order to move forwards. I was surprised at how quickly I began to feel better about myself and my life.
After our first session and in just the first couple of weeks of “doing the work” (which never stops, by the way) I started to feel better, lighter, dare-I-say-it happier(!), less afraid and more excited about both my present and my future. The colour was quickly coming back into my life! I think what I will be forever grateful to Larney for is helping me forgive my past and finding a level of compassion and benevolence within that has truly changed my life and the way I view it, giving me the power to generate my own emotional freedom and security.
When I first met Larney she asked me what I wanted to feel. I told her I wanted to feel happy and safe. And now I can genuinely say that I do. I feel immensely proud to say that because with Larney’s guidance and support, I did the work to get to this point so I know it’s sustainable. I’m happier, more engaged and focused at work, I feel connected to my friendships with a depth I didn’t know before, I am in regular contact with my family and the cherry on top - I’m in a happy, healthy and committed relationship! It turns out that the elusive “Knight in Shining Armour” is actually me! And Prince Charming? He’s the reward you get after you’ve learned how to save yourself! 😊
