“together we flourish”
“Nice manner, you listen well. Feel relaxed in your presence. Your approach is different. You have a different way of thinking, a non-traditional approach. You have pointed me to think differently and as a result I have changed. “
Dave Murray Vice President, GCP Technologies American Express
elementas’s executive coaching is suitable for directors, executives and senior leaders. It has been designed to consider your needs and vision, holistically, connecting your component characteristics, to enable you to flourish.
The Value of Coaching
Coaching can bring you extra support to deal with personal or work based challenges or blockages. You may be reassessing your career direction or life choices. You may be experiencing major life changing events. You may just feel that something is missing from your life. Whatever your individual situation, coaching provides 1:1 confidential, support.
“If you would have asked me 12 months ago to seek help from somebody in Lou’s profession I might well have responded in the typical blokey way….I don’t need help, I’ll sort it myself! Since being put in touch with Lou I have been so pleased with the results from our meetings. I find that using Lou as a bit of a sounding board and being open to her suggestions has really put the concerns I had about my work into perspective. There is no doubt that my relationship with Lou has had a positive impact on not only my work but my family life as well”

Coaching is goal orientated. It is reality focused and enables you to access your inner resources and achieve results. Practically it is a slot in your diary to focus solely on you. Time to leave behind all the noise, to find true presence. To liberate your thinking and creative potential through engaging, structured discussions, questioning techniques, work practices combined with listening and space for stillness and reflection.
Coaching is specific to you and your individual needs. elementas creates a confidential space for you to harness your thinking. A chance to break from your daily routines to notice and realise, to work things out, to fine-tune and importantly to come to your own natural balance.
Structured coaching conversations enable you to become more self-aware, more discerning. By identifying your hurdles (actual or perceived) and mind-set, you can encourage your own energy to flow more efficiently and focus on your goals.
We will use tools and techniques like GROW (Goal Reality Options Will) combined with different ideas, fresh approaches and personal development techniques. We will explore your individual preferences and your values and beliefs system will bring more awareness. You will be more aware of what is driving you, consciously or subconsciously. Together we will work out the best ways to help you self-motivate and support you in this process. I will help you discover how to unlock the extra special self-understanding, giving specific attention to areas that will truly count.
elementas coaching causes you to stop, to have a break, to refuel, to remember, to feel more connected to reset your inner compass. You will feel more refreshed and refocused. Feel more confident, professionally and personally, that you are better resourced to continue on your journey. Discover more time and energy for the strategic growth objectives and personal changes you aim for. You know the ones that until now have eluded you.
Check yourself in and give yourself time, space and permission to work out what matters. And start to appreciate what is truly deserving of your time and focus, creating a return on your investment that will make a difference.

Peter Dickenson, Entrepreneur (Digital, Health Sectors)
“Lou is clearly an experienced coach and even though I am not the easiest person to coach she was able to draw out of me a clear vision of what I need to do over the next 5 years in order for me to achieve my long term goal. Although, I could have worked this out for myself, Lou’s skilled approach got me there a lot faster and with a clearer vision which means I was able to start implementing the changes sooner.”
Michael Wilson, Entrepreneur and Consultant (Aviation and Nautical Sectors) –
“Lou is a sensation. If your mind is open to success then Lou is your lady. Different than your regular life or business coach, Lou will work with you on your goals on your terms so that you develop the answers and confirm these with yourself. Whether it is organisation, productivity or mindset. She will help you breakaway from regular norms or self-limiting thoughts to enhance the way you work and to live your life you want to live. She is tender, passionate, respectful and just a very very lovely person.”

“Lou has worked with me, to help me on a journey to rediscover myself after number of issues at work completely knocked my confidence, question who I was and what I was doing with my life. She is non-judgmental and really got to know me as an individual and never passed judgement. She has a vast wealth of experience and knowledge of life to relate to and she has some great tools/aids at her finger tips to help inspire you instantly. She exudes so much positivity and encourages that from others. Lou is such a genuine person who want to help others to get the best out of themselves. She is a very inspirational lady; a great personal coach that has help me beyond my expectations and I am now discovering a whole new me…..that I really like! Thank you just doesn’t seem enough ”
