What my lovely clients say:
“Before I started working with Ela, I wasn’t really prioritising my health and wellbeing. I thought I was doing OK and was far too busy to fit anything else in. It very quickly became clear that I needed to focus a lot more on nourishing myself and putting my own needs first for a change.
The tools that Ela has given me are fantastic and whist at first it feels a bit like another thing to fit in, they genuinely are easy to fit in and have made my life so much easier. I listen much more to own energy cycles and ma much more in tune with them so that I feel more aligned to doing the things I need to do in a way that works far better for me, without pushing on through and exhausting myself.
Ela is an amazing coach; she has provided me a safe space to talk about the things that are important to me; she has gently challenged me to see a different perspective to those things and has held me accountable with love and compassion. For anyone thinking about doing any coaching with Ela, I’d say go for it, it will be more than worth your while.”

” I started the 12 week programme with health goals in mind. I was stuck in a rut and despite wanting to change my life, I could never stick to my goals. I found my confidence was low in certain situations but I hadn’t acknowledged this.
I decided to work with Ela as I realised that I had felt upset and frustrated about the challenges I faced for years. I wanted significant and lasting changes in my life and I had not managed to achieve them independently.
Never having worked with a coach before, I was not sure what to expect, I am a bit of a sceptic so starting the programme took me out of my comfort zone.
I am so glad I did join Ela’s programme. Now I have reached my goals on my health journey. I also feel more confident in other areas of my life. I am more self assured at work and have become better at standing up for myself. I feel I have grown during this course and have learnt how to get my life moving in the directions I want it to go.
The tools in the programme are really helpful.
Ela introduced me to the PowerTypes, a way of focusing on the elements of our own power that we may not be using. For me it meant that it was fine to look after myself and assert my needs too. It has led me to having a more balanced life.
I also found some of the more in depth sessions very helpful, being supported through discussions and guided meditations. These sessions really unlocked why I faced some of the challenges I did and enabled me to face up to them and fix them.
Ela is a supportive coach and introduces these tools in a kind and professional way, she has fantastic experience that built my confidence up enough to try things out of my comfort zone. She also kept me accountable, focusing me on my intentions for the course. This was particularly helpful as I tried to break bad habits and start helpful new ones.
Without a doubt working with Ela has changed my life for the better. She goes beyond traditional life coaching and really listens to your personal challenges and goals. I am happier and healthier as a result of this programme and would recommend it to anyone hoping for some positive change in their life and help with achieving their goals.”

“Before I started Ela’s coaching programme, I was really struggling with confidence issues which especially affected work and my career, and resulted in holding me back. I decided to sign up to the programme after meeting Ela, who is someone I felt completely comfortable with. She is a calming soul and I was happy to tell her any personal issues I had, and ultimately, I believed she could help.
Since starting the programme I have actively sought out situations I had previously avoided with encouragement from Ela. I have been given tools and techniques to help beat my low confidence. One of my favourite tools is the meditation that Ela guides you through. I had never tried meditation before and was a little sceptical but I found it to be very eye opening, giving me a better idea into where some of my worries and fears stem from. I could then address these fears more specifically in the sessions.
Since completing the programme I feel more secure in myself, and less paranoid as to what others think of me which is a breath of fresh air! I have more belief in what I can do and now I feel ready to tackle bigger challenges that I wouldn’t have tried before.
I thoroughly recommend Ela to anyone who is dealing with a problem that is holding them back in life. You will get so much support from Ela and come out of each session feeling happier and ready to take on the world!
