About Leanne

Leanne started studying counselling in 2000, after the tragic loss of her beautiful daughter.

She really wanted to be able to help and support other families that had experienced the same devastating loss.

While studying and being a full time foster carer, Leanne realised that this was definitely the path she needed to go down. She was always in her prime when helping others.

Life didn’t exactly go to her fairy-tale plan though with a divorce following the birth of her two boys. As you can imagine, study was put on hold for a while while she raised 3 small children on her own.

Leanne soon discovered that her situation and the “hands on experience” was actually the best qualification she could have wished for.

Life was definitely a rollercoaster ride for many years with some amazing and not so amazing times. You know the times: when you just want to throw it all in! There were many days of tears and wondering how the hell she was going to survive. Some days the only thing that got her through was her saying: “lucky they are so cute!”

Life was chaos and yet she was determined to change that and be the best parent she could be.


I came to a point where I realised that I had completely lost myself in parenting.
I was no longer Leanne, only Mum!

I had lost all of my own dreams and desires and everything I did revolved around my kids. As much as I love my children, I felt I was exhausted, frustrated and overwhelmed with my same old life day after day. There was no excitement, no adventure and no growth.

Decision Time

I decided it was time to get the diploma of counselling I had started all those years ago. So, in 2007, I re-commenced study.

Becoming a qualified counsellor wasn’t all I thought if would be and in fact, it was nothing like I had imagined. I had the piece of paper but it meant nothing as I didn’t have the confidence to do anything with it. I really wanted my own practice but didn’t know where to start.

I started volunteering my services to organisations to build confidence. It was a slow process and I never believed in myself enough to take it to the next level. Constantly being confronted by the fear of “I’m not good enough”.

That was the story until she found the Coaching Institute in Melbourne

Since that day, Leanne’s life changed forever. She not only found the tools and support she needed to create her own practice, she also found the most amazing tools to change her clients lives as well. Once discovering what coaching was and how powerful it is, Leanne knew, without a doubt that this was the perfect career for her. 

Leanne always knew that she wanted to take clients further than she could in counselling. She really wanted them to create their Ideal life and move forward with passion, hence the journey began.

Draw a Line in the Sand

Once she found coaching, that was it. Through coaching Leanne has been able to conquer any fear that comes her way and create the successful business that she knew was possible. She has already surpassed her personal and business goals in so many ways.

The journey has not only changed her life forever, but also all of her kids lives. Through her coaching journey, Leanne realised that the chaos that she experience on a daily basis had changed into calm without even working on the children. For over 10 years she tried to work on the children and not take her own needs into account. Once she learnt about herself and how to fulfil her own needs, her chaos just dropped away.

The Missing Piece of the Puzzle

Leanne has attended nearly every parenting course on the coast and many on the internet over the years and although they were good, she never found they were sustainable for creating the change that she wanted for the long term.

Leanne applied a different unique approach for each of her children and found the missing piece of the puzzle for creating lasting change within families. She worked with other families to see if this would also work for them and the feedback, just after one session was remarkable. This promoted Leanne to further her studies in this unique area.

Through her studies, Leanne realised how impactful it is to have a full understanding of your child’s individual behavioural profile. Since applying her knowledge of this, along with Meta Dynamics and the core needs of children, Leanne is able to connect with all of her children on such a deeper level. 

The understanding of their profile and how it interacts with our own is a life changer. Now Leanne get’s to see first hand the amazing results this knowledge has on other families too.
