Heartful Coaching

Let's have a heart to heart


Leadership can be tough, right? Big expectations, constant change, 24/7 emails.

But at the heart of it, you know that you've got what it takes.

There's a bigger purpose that keeps you going. You just need to reconnect with it.


That's where I come in. 

As a qualified coach, I help you get past all the heady thoughts and get to the heart of who you are, why you're here and how to be your best.

A coaching session is a confidential space where you can get clear on where you're heading, design a clear action plan, and ignite the confidence to take it forward.  

Why work with me?

I've got your interests at heart and I believe that you've got the answers. My job is to help you uncover them.  

Coaching has helped me to develop the courage to lead with heart. Now, as a coach, I help shape more courageous, caring leaders which our world so badly needs.

I also lead workshops to engage teams in conversations with a clear outcome (like a team plan or a strategic plan) and I facilitate Community Liaison Groups. Creating a safe and inclusive space where everyone can contribute makes me smile.

A few fun facts: 

  • Integrity, connection and growth are what make me tick. 
  • I'm great at listening, designing strategies, leading workshops, and helping you communicate a clear message.
  • I've led teams in the utilities, logistics, health and medical research and not for profit sectors through privatisation, drought, protests and changes in leadership, and I've been the youngest and only woman on an executive team.
  • I've got a degree in Arts/Communication Studies (PR and Journalism), am a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, have completed Professional Coach training, and I'm currently doing an MBA.

I coach Australia-wide via Skype or over coffee in Newcastle/Lake Macquarie,

If you'd like to have a mini heart-to-heart and find out if coaching is for you, choose a time here.


Lauren Eyles

What's it like to work with me?

Working with Lauren was an opportunity to remind myself of my strengths and motivators. She really helped me to define goals, to identify any gaps and most importantly, she connected me back to the skills I already have that allow me to achieve those goals. 

It was helpful in many aspects of my life, both career and personal . We tackled big issues as well as simple techniques to apply. I’d highly recommend Lauren as a coach. Her genuine encouragement, gentle questioning and overall support made such a positive impact on both my mind and to my actions. 

Liz, Manager 

Working with Lauren was both challenging and comforting at the same time. Each session built on the previous one but the real magic was that all the ideas seemed to come from me!  That is a reflection of Lauren’s style and her skill as a coach. I’ve grown in confidence over our time together. 

Just having dedicated time to focus on the issues I am dealing with, to get them ‘out there’ and to challenge my habitual ways of thinking, was pure gold. I highly recommend coaching – and Lauren in particular! 

Ruth, Business Leader 

As a recent Biotechnology graduate looking to begin my career I have found it immensely helpful working with Lauren to identify my personal goals and to set up a five year plan. 

It enabled me to reflect on my own strengths and values in such a way that I can now readily identify and describe them to potential future employers. 

Her passionate, patient and engaging approach made the coaching sessions very comfortable and I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone commencing their career or seeking to further develop themselves.
