Laura Haywood Raleigh, North Carolina
Life Coach, Leadership Coach, Relationship Coach
Authentic Leadership Coach, Raleigh Coaching Academy
I passionately believe we don't have to feel stuck, lost or live in the past. We can live in a more positive and fulfilling way, improving life for ourselves and others around us.
I coach clients who have been through difficult experiences and now want to be free and in control in moving forward; who want to change how they see and feel about themselves and increase confidence and self-esteem. I also help clients navigate change and choices in a healthier and more positive way.
Unknowingly, we can be held back by negative self-talk and limiting beliefs. These can affect how we approach change and choices, whether we can move on from the past and can lead to not feeling good enough, always pleasing others, saying yes when we really mean no, not valuing ourselves or feeling overly critical. Working with me can help you to dig deep and find who you truly are, what you really want, and to let go of old beliefs and ways of being.
I am energized by coaching from a heart-based place, rather than simply working to the goal. This style of coaching can empower you to create meaningful and sustained changes in your life. I can help you see your blind spots so you can positively re-frame the cycle of long-held limiting beliefs, inspiring you to have a better relationship with yourself and others.
I am an insightful, grounded, caring and challenging coach that helps you to nurture who you are today and embrace who you can be tomorrow.
I became a professional life coach after relocating to the US from the UK, where I was a therapist for many years. I am Head of Professional Integrity for Raleigh Coaching Academy and an ICF (International Coach Federation) Global Member and a member of the ICF Raleigh Chapter.
