What My Clients Say..
Before I started working with Louisa there was a lot of dysfunction and frustration in my life with subsequent physical and mental health issues. I saw Louisa’s post on Facebook and contacted her in desperation. Life was so busy and messy that I actually ended up having my phone call with her in a car park miles from my home, in the snow.
My experience during the programme was amazing. I felt supported and learned so much about myself and how to manage my health issues.
My biggest benefits from doing the programme was self confidence, self knowledge, self belief and the ability to pull myself out of emotional black holes when they turn up.
Oh yes…and another BIG benefit…I have shifted the belief that I am responsible for everything ( oldest child stuff). Releasing that burden was massive and I am aware that I am much more relaxed.
I have trained at many things and never been able to settle to making them work for me on any level, but now I know what my dream is and that I really really can live it!
Louisa is a brilliant Coach, she always gets back to me if I get in a pickle (which I have done on many occasions) and has been so patient with me. She is also very intuitive and has helped me look at issues I didn’t even know were there.
I am now going on to do the mentorship training myself. I have spoken about EAM to my Homeopathic Clients and they are all keen to know more.
Lilias Drummond, Classical Homeopath and Bach Practitioner
I had just been made redundant from work after 7 yrs. I knew I wanted to work for myself and create a better life for my daughter Brooke & I but didn’t have a clue doing what or whether I had it in me to be my own boss. I had also been single a long time resulting in a lack of confidence in myself in a lot of areas of my life. My relationship with my family wasn’t great either, making me feel alone with minimal support especially emotionally to succeed most of the time.
I decided to invest in Your Impassioned Life as I felt like I had been on a hamsters wheel of life for too long and that if I didn’t invest in myself and find a way off that hamsters wheel, I would never be able to provide my daughter and I with the life I had envisioned when she was born 8 yrs ago.
At the beginning I struggled with the group calls as I am (was) a very private person so opening up to strangers I felt completely out of my comfort zone. However I soon came to realise that they were all on similar journeys and everyone felt out of their comfort zone in their own way too and I started to look forward to the weekly calls to hear everyone updates and feel part of a family of like minded people that were supporters in each other. The course work was easy to follow and Louisa was always just a message away if I got truly stuck.
There were so many benefits to this programme that when immersed in it you can’t see how far you’ve come but on reflection; I found my confidence, I found myself again, I got off the hamster wheel and started enjoying time with my daughter, time for myself, started making more plans with friends as I wasn’t worrying so much about money all the time or if I was intruding on their family life on a weekend being single. I let go of limiting beliefs and fears around internet dating to put myself out their again. I realised my passion for song writing was more than a hobby and finally allowed myself to acknowledge I had a talent that I could be proud of not shy away from in fear of overshadowing someone elses lack of confidence. I changed my relationship with my family just by doing the work on myself and changing perceptions to past events & people personas (this one was huge) to feeling connected and healed from old wounds. I found my passion, purpose, confidence and desire to help people that has enabled me to set up my own Transformational Life coaching business using skills I had acquired but wasn’t sure how to utilise as a home business until this programme.
Louisa has such a calming, patient, warm and happy vibe that she puts you at ease from the moment you speak with her. She has such passion to see everyone succeed and was always able to rectify problems or answer questions by her knowledge of EAM & Pranic healing that she instilled confidence in me that I could do it even on the days I doubted myself.
I would recommend anyone to this programme that truly wants to change their lives for the better and are ready to let go of the emotional & limiting patterns or habits that no longer serve them.

I was at a point in my life where I hated my job and I needed to identify my passion and purpose and to create a plan to retire, and I wanted to practice more self love. So I decided to invest in myself and do the programme.
My life has done a complete 360 turnaround, . It’s been amazing, I have learnt new practices which I have built into my life. I feel part of a whole new supportive community ( of friends and likeminded people), and I love my job now and life. I know I need to be by the sea and I am taking actions to get there. It also highlighted other stuff which came up and I dealt with these.
The biggest benefits for me have been learning EAM, meditation practices, positive affirmations which I practice daily and realising I’m worth it. Investing in me has been positive for not just me but my family and friends. I loved supporting others in the group and finding out I am a light worker. I have changed and opened up to the Universe. The list just goes on… Louisa has an awesome energy around her which puts you at ease immediately. Louisa has a way which enables you to feel safe and secure to open up about your issues and work through these throughout the programme. I felt extremely lucky to have discovered her and she has become a true friend for life.
To anyone thinking of doing the programme, just do it you honestly won’t regret it. Your life will be improved and your outlook will change to a more positive and loving persona.
Before I started working with Louisa, I felt unhappy, disillusioned and sad and I was extremely worried about finding new work opportunities and also someone special to share my life with. I listened to Louisa’s webinar on 31st December 2017 and liked the sound of EAM and the positivity that exuded from Louisa. So, I decided that I needed to do something to change the way that I felt.
I loved all the sessions I had and I am very happy that we identified some negative beliefs, patterns and energy around various scenarios. We worked together and have cleared all of these to enable me to move forward positively. I now have a daily routine to check in to make sure that “ I am in flow” and I use EAM to guide me when I am unsure about something.
I highly recommend Louisa’s programme to others who feel ‘stuck” in their current situation whether it relates to work issues or issues in your personal life. Louisa has helped me to change my mindset to become more positive and I am extremely grateful for all the additional information and support that Louisa provided.

Before I started working with Louisa I was feeling a sense of frustration and feeling a pressing urge to change my life in order to make the most of my innate creative potential. I saw the Facebook ad and the questions raised resonated with me and I felt that perhaps I could find some answers here by investing my time and money.
I was worried about how I would fit ‘Your Impassioned Life’ in my life, as you need to do the work to make the change, I found the support of the weekly group calls helped me to keep moving and stay motivated.
I am so glad I did the programme, as I have now have clarity around what I would like to create in my life and released the resistances I had about making this a reality. I also have the EAM tool to take forward with me to release anything else that may come up in the future. I feel my confidence is much stronger now than ever before and I know I have the ability to create the abundant lifestyle I want, as long as my thoughts and emotions are in a high vibration and I take inspired action.
I now have the desire to drive me to step outside my comfort zone and I can build upon my reserves of strength as I take each step however small or large! I can work with the universal laws, as I know the Universe is ready to provide me everything I need and more as long as I am prepared i.e. by getting my energy aligned and clearing any resistance as they arise and by trusting my intuition.
I also feel like I can create the personal and professional freedom I want, as I realise that it is begins with making a conscious choice and then ensuring that my thoughts beliefs and feelings are all aligned I can continue to make the right choices and take congruent action. I am now ready to receive prosperity into my life and energy because my belief is that there is more than enough available for everyone whereas before I operated from a model of scarcity. I can be more generous towards myself which is a form of self care.
Right now, my vision is as clearly defined as is possible, I know this will be an ongoing thing, as I continue to take action and develop my game plan.
Overall, I found Louisa to be enthusiastic, supportive and generous as a holistic coach and mentor. She is clear in her communication and demonstrates a compassionate, caring approach, and I would recommend Your Impassioned Life to people who are willing and prepared to invest time in themselves, and in their personal development, to create the change in themselves and in their life.

Before I started working with Louisa I had ongoing health issues culminating in a major operation. I joined the programme two weeks into recovery. I was also readjusting to life shifts following the death of my mother-in-law, reduction in responsibilities and allowing more time to re-evaluate my future. I invested in Your Impassioned Life as I had put my life on hold for too long. And now was the time to commit to me! Although it was a large financial commitment, I recognised the need to act differently, to facilitate the change I so desired.
The biggest benefits for me have been shifting negative emotional patterns which prevented me from moving forward. I now listen to warning signs that my life is out of alignment and am aware of how negativity from others influences me. I have come to terms with past traumatic life events, appreciating where they have given me inner strength. I’m even considering using my experiences to work in the field of mental health. Thanks to the support in the group, I am conquering my social anxiety, which I suffered after the loss of my father and the subsequent birth of my son. And I’m back performing again!!!
My confidence has rocketed as I am learning to trust in myself, work through challenges and take pride in my achievements. I now have inner peace – yes life still throws you curve balls, but nothing keeps me down for long!
Louisa is an amazing coach & mentor! She is able to reinterpret what you think and say to uncover deep-rooted issues. She instinctively knows when to offer her insight, when others can offer theirs, and when the answer already lies within yourself.
If you are looking for passion and purpose in your life, you will be amazed by just how different life can be. It’s an emotional rollercoaster with highs and lows, shedding layer upon layer to reveal your true inner core. It’s been there all along, just crying out to be heard!
Your Impassioned Life is for all, regardless of your starting place, regardless of your story. This programme is truly inspirational – are you ready to take a leap of faith?
“I love Louisa’s profound healing work. She’s got an incredible gift of helping women move beyond their blocks and blast into BLISS. We were able to clear out some old stuff I was not aware I was holding onto. After my session with Lou I felt more confident, empowered, grounded and FREEER to be me in all areas of my life. I highly recommend working with Lou if you’re ready to breakthrough what’s holding you back and open yourself to receive more abundance, joy and peace!”
Amanda Moxley International Speaker Business Coach.
Before I started Your Impassioned Life, I had been juggling a very busy life, felt I had a muddled brain and a feeling of being swamped by so many responsibilities from numerous sources. I was really eager for change. I love my life as a mother but I’m at that point in my life where I need to build something for myself which serves my own interests, and I began to recognise that this isn’t a selfish thing.
I did feel the dread and fear of being unsure if I would be able to keep up with the Programme and do it, and myself, justice. I thought “I can’t do it, I can’t do it, I can’t do it”, but that is the fearful me. This probably says something about my lack of self assurance at the time and I recognised how far I had lost some of my self worth. The course allowed me to remember all the exciting things I had done in my life thus far and that I had been a very feisty, independent 18 year old that took off on a job abroad without any hesitation. I had independently taken myself back to study at University, and a short business career in international locations followed. Then I became an Army wife and mother, and became so domesticated (through necessity!) that I’d almost lost a sense of my own identity!
Whilst I did ‘know’ me, I missed the adventurer in me: – I felt all that had been squished. It was Louisa, saying, you need to find what lights you up and go with it, that encouraged me to be true to myself. The online discussions within the Programme encourage you to give yourself a pat on the back, as it’s such an important thing to go inside yourself and reclaim where you once were as a person!
There have been so many benefits to me doing the programme, I am proud of myself for taking the time and putting in the work. I have become unstuck from my rut! I’ve smashed down the negative voices and I listen to all things positive and gravitate towards the sorts of relationships which are fun and supportive. The course encourages you to surround yourself and network with other people who are supportive and I have enjoyed making time to organise quick meet ups/reunions in fun locations. All this good stuff helps you to bounce out of bed and seize your day – I have learned that it is all about the Energy!
I now have the strength to step outside of my comfort zone, I am certainly feeling the fear but doing it anyway! I know I am a work in progress as I learn how to work and understand the universal laws better, and I love that I have ‘life time’ access to the programme to help me continue to learn and grow. I am really interested in the Universal Laws, it makes a lot of sense to me, even though it surprises me so much. Initially I was sceptical, but I realised that this didn’t conflict with my Christian beliefs, and I felt the freedom was good to explore, enabling my body and mind to become well.
I am creating my personal and professional freedom, it is a journey. I recently recognised how different a person I was since I gave birth to my third child 7 years ago, and each stage of your life is to be celebrated. I am looking at things differently now. I recognise you do become a different person and that is ok, and you need to step away from different parts of your life that sap you of energy. Be open to new conversations, new things that you are reading, new friends and relationships that become a part of your journey.
I have less fear about the flow of money. I trust my instincts about how best to invest it in my new business. So I’m feeling less paralysed about making financial decisions.
Louisa is a phenomenal coach and mentor. She has all the qualities that I need to get me to the place to where I am heading for. Firstly, I always appreciated Louisa’s sense of humour and the very human, easy-going, calm nature that she has. I first met Louisa some years ago now, and over the years have seen the many leaps in learning that she has made in herself and I’ve seen the transformation in her.
I was worried about the group calls to start with, but my initial experience was very heartening when I met the others in my group, I felt surprisingly at ease being online and chatting fairly openly about things that seemed very complicated to me when I was trying to figure them out on my own. I felt that I was in an environment that could be trusted and I eventually felt comfortable sharing things. I felt my online buddies were instantly kindred spirits and I loved the weekly calls to help me keep on track and build momentum.
I already have recommended Your Impassioned Life Programme to others. I’d recommend it to men and women at a turning point in their life being it professional or personal. It isn’t just for those in midlife making big changes with many responsibilities, but also for youngsters making transformations in their working life in their 20’s, who are seeking to find their soul’s purpose earlier on in their life, before they come to midlife.
There are so many younger adults going into their 30’s concerned about nailing down relationships and achieving their goals when things may not have worked out how they imagined. Instead of experiencing frustration and disappointment, it is a valuable stage in life to reevaluate where you are heading, and what sort of person you have become. If one can become empowered to make any changes earlier on, so that they don’t stagnate and feel stressed about their daily grind, it has to be better!!

” Life outside of work was good and helped me cope with day to day work challenges . At work I had challenges with wanting to move on to different specialism, but to some level being prevented from doing so, as I was only being offered partial personal development in relation to my career. Through discussion with my line manager I wanted to have a mentor to explore what tools I could use to help me progress with my personal development and a possible move from my current position.
I found the sessions really positive and a bit mind blowing . They helped me reflect on my approach to things and techniques used in relation to interviews to keep calm and focused. I came away after every session feeling positive and self believing.
The sessions helped me focus on what I wanted to do and needed to do . I’d recommend Louisa as a coach to anyone who is looking to move forward with their life. The main thing that sticks out for me is the coat hanger test where brain waves are picked up and move the hangers (amazing) and that was the mind blowing bit!”.
Phil Davies, Practice Manager, East Sussex County Council.
I had been working to build a new business, putting in many long hours and I was feeling overwhelmed and overworked. I knew I had a few energetic blocks preventing me from moving forward with my work, and I wanted help to clear them so I could get back in flow and move my business forward. My experience was so great – Louisa led me through the process with ease and I was able to physically connect with and feel my blocks as they moved out of my body and my energy field. As an acupuncturist, I’m connected to energetic flow in my work and in daily life, and I found the process of asking the body yes or no through the swaying technique so fascinating because it’s so simple and extremely intuitive, bypassing the doubts of the mind. I was able to ground myself and clear the blocks I was holding onto. I felt calmer and more centered after the session. I would absolutely recommend the sessions to anyone who is feeling blocked, stuck, held back by any beliefs, self-doubts or fears either consciously or subconsciously.
Wendy Leung, Holistic Health & Happiness Coach
Before working with you Lou I was feeling quite overloaded, finding it difficult to prioritise time for myself and the things that are important to me without these getting drowned out by other commitments. I hoped that your expertise and experience would support me to better manage my time and energy resources and to be able to effectively schedule and prioritise the things that are important to me. I experienced you as a very positive and attentive coach who was very good at listening to and responding to the challenges I outlined, and whom I soon felt I could trust to work at a deep level. I really benefited from the opportunity for reflective dialogue and new concrete, positive strategies I can use to help me work to build a life where I commit to and focus on the things that make me happy! As well as a useful introduction to the EAM technique which I will be able to use to meet and work through challenges. Thank you so much Lou. I felt a huge generosity of warmth and connection in our sessions and your positivity helped my confidence that I can travel the path I wish to!

Prior to working with Louisa, I’d been struggling with money blocks. I had certain beliefs around wealth which I knew came from childhood and were affecting my ability to create abundance in my life. After talking to Louisa about energy and how our beliefs from past experience affect our lives, I had a brief taster session of finding out what my blocks are and removing them. It was amazing! I wanted to know more after that. During the sessions, I was able to tap into just what was blocking me subconsciously and even be guided into working out when these blocks started forming. We then had a fascinating and emotional time clearing them. The immediate benefit was that I was able to have clarity on what was stopping me move forward. I now know what to look out for in my life if I feel blocked in the same area. I have tools to work through any other negative beliefs and clear them. I can also now use these same tools to test what I want to design in my life.
I’d absolutely recommend the sessions. We all have self limiting beliefs but we often don’t really know what they are or how to change them. I’ve read lots of books about this but never had anything so practical to make a difference. Louisa, you are like a personal cheerleader throughout the process with your positivity and enthusiasm! Thank you!
Alison Arden, Acupuncturist
Before I worked with Louisa I’d been struggling for a few months with sciatic problems and digestive issues and I instinctively felt there was a connection with my brother dying two years before. So I decided to invest in myself and see Louisa. Louisa coached me through this using the Energy Alignment Method.
My experience of the sessions included a lot of wow moments especially when at one point my sciatic pain completely vanished. I kept moving and trying to find it again because I couldn’t quite believe what had happened! I’ve used some of the techniques subsequently and found them easy, very useful and beneficial. I would definitely recommend Louisa to others, she is very passionate about what she does and so lovely too. At one point I burst into tears and she just kept calm and allowed me to work through it and by the end of that session I was laughing!

I was struggling with working out the way forward for progressing my entry in to coaching. I also had significant relationship difficulties, and enormous self-belief and esteem challenges. I listened to one of the Transform Your Life webinar by Louisa, and took her up on her free follow up call. What Louisa offered in relation to EAM sounded interesting and there was something about how we clicked that made me feel OK with allowing her to support me through the sessions. The price was a challenge but not impossible. I also recognised the need to experience some coaching to really be able to say for certain if coaching was for me or not. Louisa was supportive, kind, and listened, and I felt able to express my fleeting doubts over the methods without causing her offence. Louisa set me at ease very capably, and was able to switch from light heartedness to taking the issues and topics I raised with the appropriate level of gravity, so I never felt mocked or embarrassed.
I have felt a shift in how I am responding to issues, people, activities and events in my life. We have worked on the drama triangle, and I have felt a much needed deep sense of calm pervade through me when I have dealt with some quite enflamed situations of late. I have felt able to be more of me, and that #Iamfromwithin. None of the issues I presented when we started the sessions have been resolved or gone away, I am able to process them differently, and consequently remain true to myself and feel more at peace with the actions I take around them.
I would recommend the EAM sessions to people who are open minded to the power of energy within and surrounding the body. Many moons ago I undertook Reiki Level 1, and have always been drawn to the more spiritual aspects of humans, and therefore, although I had some doubts, I was perhaps more open to it than someone who needs scientific and hard facts to underpin their decisions.
Sarah Murphy, Life Purpose Coach, www.pinnacle-essence.co.uk
” I found coaching with Louisa really helpful. It gave me the time and space to reflect and devise pathways to next steps. Previously I haven’t thought out and planned next steps in any structured way before, analysing steps and have generally leapt from one opportunity to the next without really considering where that would take me and almost if it was somewhere I wanted to go or not! I also have never looked at or thought to really look at my career in terms of aligning it to my values and beliefs.
I now have a plan of action that makes the next steps feasible. We have a programme of events mapped for the year, how I can actually make the most of the opportunity to give it the best chance to be a feasible opportunity and development for a future career or at least an opportunity to develop new skills. Now feel like I am at the point where I just need to do it and try to make it work.
Through coaching I have gained more insight and to actually critically evaluate opportunities and changes, to think about what’s important to me. To pause and critically think about my career.
Also, confidence generally, but particularly in the idea of doing my own thing and making that work. I found the exercises with tools have been particularly helpful to draw out thoughts I almost wasn’t really aware of and that I am not sure would have surfaced without this work. The reflective nature of coaching generally with open questions and space to try to answer these.
Louisa has a very open style which encouraged me to be open, and Louisa was provided me with a flexible structure to allow work to be carried out between sessions and to take account of timing of key events and time sessions following these, for example, a session a little while after an event. Also, I think Louisa has a really good knack at knowing how much coaching is needed and is very self-aware to ensure the ethos and boundaries of coaching are retained so as ensure it’s an enabling process and not creating a dependency.
I think Louisa may have had a crystal ball, as the self- limiting beliefs exploration was really timely, given what happened at that time. If I hadn’t looked at it in that session, I may not have dealt with that so well when I needed to and that could have had a massively negative impact on how I handled the interview with our speaker. As it was, it totally went the other way and we have the same speaker lined up for two further events where I will be interviewing her and the feedback is she really likes us!”
Thank you so much Louisa.
Jo, Events Manager, Brighton
I’d found myself at a little bit of a junction on my business path, whereby I knew deep down I could be successful, as the whole business model isn’t at all complicated and I believe 100% in the company and products, but that I felt blocked about stepping beyond existing friends to make new and meaningful connections which would lead to me making better progress professionally. I had been attracted to sign up to the ‘Meetup’ app and as a result, attended one of Louisa’s early networking meetings in Hove. On meeting Louisa I instantly felt a connection, such that when I found out she offered Coaching and also had very good experience in the world of Network Marketing, she ticked both boxes!! I had already recognised that I needed to open up to somebody impartial, to unearth whatever it was that was blocking my progress. I knew that a one off session wouldn’t necessarily resolve anything and was happy to sign up for a block of 5, spread fortnightly, as it felt a very good investment in myself, which I think is very important.
I found the style of coaching to be familiar as I had previous knowledge of the concept of life coaching, whereby I would be providing the answers rather than Louisa. The manner in which Louisa guided me towards finding those answers was perfect and the materials which she provided for me to work on away from our sessions were very useful indeed, especially those surrounding self-limiting beliefs, defining my values and clearing out the clutter.
I unearthed emotional reactions, which provided me with information about those areas which possibly require further attention in the future. I definitely came away feeling less mentally cluttered and as a result of defining my values and in particular my three core values, I now know more about myself and the type of people I will attract. I now recognise that by changing my vocabulary my beliefs become empowering rather than limiting.
I would definitely recommend a series of sessions. I think if you’re looking to advance in business and feel stuck, or are having personal issues which you are unable to resolve on your own, then these sessions will undoubtedly help lead you towards a resolution. You have to be open to knowing the answers come from within, with Louisa helping you to find them. This process is an investment in yourself and therein lies the true value, no matter the cost.
Wendy Lewis, Business Owner, Network Marketing.
” I had been happily settled in my dream job for four years, building a successful team and developing them through some challenging times. I work in public services as a manager of several large and diverse teams at a time of budget reductions. My post was deleted as part of a restructure and I was directly appointed into a similar post in a new area. I knew I could do the job but I had mixed emotions about leaving my established team and starting again in a new area. Coaching was offered as part of the restructure package of support and seemed like a positive and proactive way for me to manage my reaction to the changes happening in my service and to prepare myself for my new role.
The sessions were a welcome safe space for me to discuss my feelings about the changes in my role and in the wider service. As a manager I often needed to support my team regardless of my own feelings so it was good to be able to talk freely and focus on myself. Louisa was really easy to talk to; she listened and understood but also gave me just the right amount of challenge, asking me to think about what was behind my emotions and reactions to the situation and encouraging me to see the bigger picture.
As a busy full time manager, parent, wife, daughter, sister, friend, colleague, I knew I needed to spend some time working through this but was struggling to prioritise my needs above those of others. Having the coaching sessions booked in allowed me to carve out much needed time for myself, preparing for them helped me to focus on what was important to me and encouraged me to reflect on my situation rather than keep pushing through. Louisa helped me to explore my feelings about my new role, positive and negative, and think about why I felt that way.
I would recommend coaching sessions to anyone who is experiencing or considering change in their lives, especially at work. Some of the conversations I had with Louisa and the things I learned about myself have stayed with me; they still influence how I approach challenging situations more than a year later and I intend to go on using the insights they inspired in my work and personal life.”
