Lara helped me discover tools I didn't realize I had, to rise up to the challenge, while she gently introduced me to new ones. The idea, she kept subtly reinforcing, was to let your so-called limitations challenge you, rather than define you. Every insecurity, she reminded, stemmed from a person's urge to improve, to be better; It proved that you were open to change, which was (I later realized) what the EIA journey had been about all along.
I am delighted to say that my over a year long venture with Lara has helped me improve both academically and professionally. In this, it seems that our collaborative endeavour of combined learning and coaching sessions not only significantly improved my academic writing skills but has also better prepared me for dealing with the organisational aspect of my career which seemed deeply disharmonious prior to this joint enterprise. This in turn, allowed for more space to focus purely on enhancing my skills as a professional and as a proudly developing academic.
With her deep understanding of how to handle stressful situations, Lara Statham has been an inspiration for me during difficult times, caused by health issues. She has helped me to deal more effectively with inner, mental stress, mainly by making me reflect and see things in a different light. She also provided useful tools to practice externalising some inner emotions without those emotions being too “explosive”. I am grateful to her for her help and believe this help has lessened my burdens has also spread across or filtered through to family and friends. Thanks Lara!
As a coach you need to walk your talk. That’s why I have Lara as my coach. Being coached by Lara helps me sustain my high performance and making sure that I achieve the most important things in my life that will give me the best results. She challenges me when she see that I am trying to put something important off and also makes me aware of the consequences. She helps me build an action plan that is helping me achieve and attract success in my life. Lara is an incredible coach and she accounts for many successes that I have achieved as well as successes to come. Thanks Lara
I found my coaching sessions with Lara very productive. Each time I was ending up with a great, smart action-plan to go and implement immediately. Lara skillfully guided me to commit to what I really could do by being very patient, supportive and positive. Her style is gentle and encouraging, which worked very well with me because I don’t like people pushing me to do things. Lara allowed me to figure out my own pace. The coaching sessions with Lara helped me to gain more confidence in my abilities, realise my strengths and my potential and created a huge list of possibilities that I hadn’t seen before. It’s been a wonderful journey.
