Coaching By Lara

DOES YOUR LIFE LOOK GREAT ON THE OUTSIDE BUT DOESN’T FEEL SO GOOD ON THE INSIDE?

SUCCESS AND SELF-CARE ARE MY SPECIALTY.

YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU CREATE FOR EVERYONE AROUND YOU

I’m Lara Heacock, and I teach successful professionals how to enjoy the lives they work so hard to create.

My clients are the ‘strong ones’, the one who holds everyone else up, and keep everything together – at home, at work, and in their communities.

They are at a crossroads in their life and career, who know something has to change, but don’t know the next steps and need support. They’re taking care of everyone else, and don’t want to shatter the illusion that they have it all together. They’re the one everyone turns to, but who never ask anyone else for help; who are juggling career, home and everything in between.

Has your professional success taken priority over self care?

Do you say “Yes!” to everyone but yourself?

I hear you. I spent decades trying to check all the right boxes, juggle everything and keep it all under control. Even though I was outwardly successful, I realized that I wasn’t enjoying my life. I kept hearing how great and together my life looked, but I wasn’t happy.

That realization inspired me to give an old dream a chance. When I received my degree in Psychology, I investigated Life Coaching, and the desire to be a Coach never left me. In what I now know to be one of the best decisions of my life, I took a chance on me, and became a Certified Life Coach. I am now committed to helping you learn what took me a decade, and a lot of pain, to learn:

Success and self-care DO co-exist!

It’s possible – I’m living proof.

You deserve to:

  • Feel good about life
  • Be able to handle life’s curve balls in a healthy way
  • Make choices that feel good to you
  • Make yourself a priority without feeling selfish
  • Build real, lasting self-confidence
  • Own your worth and set healthy boundaries
  • Be more engaged with everyone around you
  • Feel like yourself again and find BALANCE!

When you treat yourself with love and kindness, everything shifts. Imagine not holding yourself back; taking the class, making the speech, booking that trip.  Making decisions that feel right in your gut – decisions that fill you up – enables you to offer more to the world- more energy, more wisdom, more creativity, more of EVERYTHING because you’ve filled your own reserves.

Testimonials

The thought of saying no left me feeling guilty, like I let someone down. It wasn't until I started to work with Lara that I found a way say no and work through the emotions that this generated. I learned that it wasn't my responsibility to fix everything.  Now that I've had practice, I don't feel guilty for taking care of myself or saying no. I find myself operating from a much calmer, more deliberate, and more authentic center. It turns out, that's actually a much more effective place to help from.
- Cristie, Coach & Mental Health Epidemiologist, North Carolina
I no longer live ‘on the defensive’ at work. I practice ‘doing the right thing’ daily, based on facts and my expertise. I can keep my calm much more effectively (instead of going into emotional melt down), and I know how to soothe my primitive brain. Giving this part of me a name, learning to hear it and having the option to put it to one side has helped me hugely with my confidence. I feel like an equipped adult capable of playing in adult spaces safely. I have recognized some of my key attributes and strengths, the properly deep core strengths I possess, not the superficial horoscope type strengths, but those on which my identity is based. This has even encouraged me back to passions and interests I had as a child and teenager that I put aside to focus on ‘academic’ pursuits.
- Nicola, Marketing Professional, UK
I worked out the pain coming from a difficult professional situation that was still there. I learnt to trust myself again. I learnt to assert myself and my desires more often and more naturally. I loved working with you! You have this special way to help me to listen to my heart and to acknowledge my emotions, my frustrations and desires. It’s full of kindness and compassion and this is the part I love the most. Your presence is so human, compassionate and authentic.
- Diana, Confidence Coach, Switzerland
Coaching with Lara has been a simultaneously calming and invigorating experience. From her, I've learned specific practices that help me immensely with decision-making, prioritizing, connecting to myself and others kindly, focusing on my values and making progress with gentleness.
- Rachelle, Organic Farmer, Canada
THEN: I had no job satisfaction, no ambition and just no lust for life. I knew I had to make a change in my life for me to be really happy. NOW: I am in touch with my inner kid and my adult badass. I love my new job and I know I wouldn't have found it without you directing me through the search process. You understood my situation and helped me get to a place where I not only fit, but where I can grow.  So, so, so happy.
