Journey To My Honour Code
I am lucky enough to have been coached by Louise as she taught me to always look at the big picture rather than reacting to the situation at hand.
Her firm belief in honoring oneself has me thinking outside of the box that I used to operate from. This fresh new perspective gives me permission to say no to things that I don’t want to do, and do more of the things that feel good to me and make me happy!
I remember the day I came to Louise for advice on a serious matter that left me in a great amount of pain, doubt and confusion. I was torn between two decisions. Being a person who likes to have control in my life and guaranteed outcomes before I make a move, I felt like I was stuck. I found myself overthinking and desperately trying to guarantee the results. Talking to Louise helped me tremendously with trusting my instincts and letting go of my worries. She helped me understand the power of knowing, honouring and having faith in myself and life and letting things unfold naturally. I am truly grateful that I can turn to her when I need a sounding board. Her honesty, attentiveness and care is what you look for in any great coach.
Journey to My Self Discovery
I am fifteen years old and I suffer from depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed at a young age and was unsure of what to do. I did not know what was wrong with me and I didn’t know how to relate to others and the questions that they had about why I was acting the way I was. My grades began to slip and I missed a lot of school. I felt completely overwhelmed and alone and I knew that I just did not want to live my teenage years this way.
I know that I can always talk to Louise and she keeps everything confidential. She is very intuitive when it comes to my feelings and I am glad that I have her to keep me going, when I think I no longer can.
I am 41 years old and just 3 months ago; I lost my husband after a long battle with illness. Although I knew death was a possibility and had been preparing myself, nothing could prepare me for what lay ahead for me. Some may say that I am doing very well considering what has just occurred. When I am faced with the reality that I will never see him face-to-face again, I find that I busy myself so I don’t have to feel the gut wrenching pain.
I look at Louise and I ask her how she’s able to move on and seem so happy after losing her husband not that long ago. She always tells me it’s because she walked right into her grief and not around it. She went in and held grief's hand and says to it, “teach me what you need to and let’s get to the other side of this”. This is what I want for my life, this is what my goal is; this is what Louise is helping me to do.
