When I first connected with Lucy I was at a low point in my life. Stuck in a cycle of drinking, guilt, shame and sadness. I felt and recognised the same patterns in my life and felt completely stuck. I knew I wasn’t living my best life or reaching my potential and knew things had to change. I just didn’t know how to make it happen.
I felt an instant connection with Lucy and knew her holistic approach to coaching was what I was seeking. I saw the sparkle in her eyes and felt her joy and wanted that for myself.
I have worked with a coach before but it was career focused. I went into this coaching with Lucy with an open mind and heart and with no expectations but with immense hope for clarity, guidance and support to achieve sobriety.
I was at such a low point, and so depressed that I think making the decision was the big step for me. I was excited at our first session and curious to see exactly what the coaching would look like and what it would achieve. Immediately Lucy was able to take my very jumbled thought process and simplify this into two clear goals. I was still uncertain if I could achieve these goals but I realise now that was because my self-worth was at an all-time low.
I have managed to overcome a serious drinking habit. A destructive habit that was killing me, sucking the life from me and causing me to really hate who I had become. My inner dialogue was negative and my self-esteem was rock bottom. I have stopped drinking and have learnt to be kinder and more gentle with myself. I am so freaking proud of myself. I am also happy! After being incredibly sad for so, so long the biggest change is as simple as that. I am calm and excited for what is to come. I am kinder to myself and nicer to others. I feel more able to sit with my thoughts and understand my emotions and reactions.
I have loved working with Lucy. A beautiful soul whose own happiness and positivity is inspiring. Her support, guidance and encouragement has helped me achieve my biggest goal; becoming sober. This has opened my life up in ways I couldn’t have imagined three months ago and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me.
Thank you Lucy x
