PRAISE & TESTIMONIALS

Kind words from some of the incredible humans I've worked with

 

I had the absolute privilege of having the opportunity to have Emilia coach me. Emilia was uniquely skilled to motivate and inspire me on my journey towards more happy, balanced living. 

She is knowledgeable in goal setting, intrinsic motivation and defining priorities which helped me to set solid, realistic goals for myself.

She is patient and understanding and makes you feel in charge of your life. What sets Emilia apart though is her endless positivity; encouragement and praise that helped me align my goals positively rather than feel like tasks to do. Emilia is a great coach and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

ERIN ADAMS, NEW ZEALAND

When I started with Emilia I had a dream of starting up a life coaching business. I had my coaching qualification and years of my own self development work under my belt And yet I had blocks and limiting beliefs holding me back from stepping into my dream. It was deeply frustrating, I was so close, I had come so far and yet, it still felt out of my grasp.

Emilia expertly helped me build up my self worth & self belief whilst simultaneously supporting me as I removed the stories and beliefs holding me back. 

Emilia helped me realise how capable and deserving I am of the life I deeply desired; & how available it was to me. It was available to me because, as she beautifully demonstrates in her own business, it's about celebrating who you are and drawing out your unique experiences and interests.

I now believe (& know) that bringing all of me into my business is where the magic lies...taking away the layers and expectations of how a coach 'should' behave, left me open to step into how I, Issie, wish to behave and serve as a coach. I now fully embody the vision and values I aspired to before we started our series. Now I have a coaching business which feels true, authentic and deeply rooted in ME. I know with this foundation I have created with Emilia my business is unique and sustainable...I feel truly excited and confident about where my business as a coach is leading. I would highly recommend Emilia as a life coach. My experience from start to finish was nourishing and enriching. I am now a confident and capable coach and business owner. 

ISSIE FREEMAN, SURREY ENGLAND 

When I started my coaching series with Emilia I had just moved to London and I was feeling very overwhelmed and anxious.

After our first session I realised that I was pretty anxious and quite negative about myself. Throughout the sessions a lot happened in my life – good and bad – I noticed myself dealing with the bad a lot calmer and more mindfully then what I would have usually.

In particular when my contract at work ended, I was philosophical about the change and looked at it as an opportunity for something better and more aligned with my goals and in turn I think more opportunities have arisen which are more aligned with what I want to do!

​Thank you so much for an amazing coaching series, whatever has been going on I always felt so much more in control after speaking with you. I noticed such a huge shift in my mindset, and my routines, throughout the series. I have been noticing myself slowing down and being more present in my day – whether it’s at work or sitting on the tube – I feel so much calmer and content with myself.  I believe this has set me up to deal with whatever life throws at me and left me excited (rather than anxious) for my next step –thank you, thank you, thank you!

GRACE CARR, LONDON 

Before I attended my initial session with Emilia I was slightly nervous. I had a done a lot of work before this point to address some of my mental health struggles and get to a place where I felt more comfortable and confident in myself. However I knew deep down there was more to be done but I wasn't quite sure how to go about it.​ ​Spending that hour with Emilia was fantastic.

Her openness and ability to create a space for you to talk honestly is incredible. I felt comfortable and safe with her, knowing all the while she was there to support and help me. Together we identified key areas that I wanted to make change in and ended up creating a beautiful goal that I would work towards. When she read it out loud to me it gave me goose bumps!

Not only did I come away with a goal but also a plan of action to help me move towards it. These actions were realistic in the sense that I could incorporate them into my daily routine but they were stretching and pushed me outside of my comfort zone. Emilia was on hand the whole time, if I had any questions or was struggling slightly then she was there by email or phone ready to support. Sometimes just knowing that was enough. The check in call came around so quickly I couldn't believe it!

 

Again it was so lovely to review the progress made and celebrate the positive changes I had made. I feel encouraged and able to continue on towards my goal after being given the insight and tools through the coaching session.

 

I feel extremely lucky to have been able to spend time with Emilia, she is incredible at what she does and I can't wait to see how many more people she helps to realise their potential'

 

EMILY HOUGHTON, LONDON

I can’t thank you enough for our  Soul Session, Emilia! It’s made such a difference; the perfect mix between mindset and biz coaching.
Before reaching out to Emilia, I was feeling disheartened as I wasn’t reaching my ideal clients in the ways I wanted to. I wanted to make a bigger impact and serve on a larger scale. I was hoping that our session would help me to gain clarity on steps to take to achieve this. Emilia helped me to remember the value that I offer as a coach. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that but I now feel confident in my services and excited to offer them to my ideal clients. My approach to business now feels more light and exciting. I now feel more confident in myself and am less likely to compare myself with others in my industry. (I now know) that my services are of high value and in recognizing that for myself, potential clients have an easier time recognizing that too. 

JESS DEMUNCK, AUSTRALIA 

My soul session with Emilia truly changed my life. I come from a coaching back ground myself and I pride myself in constantly developing my strengths and mindset, but there were areas of my life where I felt trapped and I just couldn’t figure out how to take control.

Emilia listened closely to every word I said, and was able to pick out certain things, which I kept coming back to.  She was very understanding and at no point did I feel judged when sharing my weaknesses and struggles.

Emilia helped me come up with an empowering Mantra to help me to feel more fulfilled with my life, and I can honestly say, I have thought about the mantra at least twice a day and it has helped turn the feeling of anxiety into moments of gratitude and triumph.

Emilia also allowed me to open up about things that have been on my mind, and even getting in the way of my life and career. She helped me set some mini goals to go away and work on, and although I didn’t do them all straight away, they were brought to the forefront of my mind and now, a couple of months later, I have taken action on all of them.

I couldn’t recommend Emilia's Soul Sessions enough. If you’re looking for a breakthrough in your personal life or career, Her kind and empowering nature will leave you feeling inspired and motivated to take control of your whole life". 

 

VICTORIA SPENCE, MANCHESTER

When I first came across Emilia online, I instantly knew she was the coach I needed. I was feeling a little stuck in truly connecting with myself on a deeper level and wanted to create complete trust in myself, the decisions I was making and to start making real shifts in allowing abundance in. I knew now was my time to shine. 

I was nervous, as this time my coaching would be over the phone. Surely this would feel cold and I'd find it hard to really connect with the stranger on the end of the line. Absolutely not! It was as though Emilia could really see in to my soul.

Her support was so beautiful and she really made me dig deep into what I needed to do and how I could get the best out of our time together. 

Going into our first session, I felt excited and nervous but in an instant Emilia made me feel completely at home. I knew what we would be covering and it felt like she transported me into another world. Where it was just the two of us. Time standing still but change happening all at once. By the end of our first session I knew the goals that I had created were so aligned to me and would support me in the journey moving forward.
The biggest change I have seen in myself is that I now choose to speak to myself in such a motivating, loving, caring and respectful way, the barriers (have) come down and I'm just so much less hard on myself. Loving yourself isn't really something you're encouraged to do or taught and Emilia helped me design what worked best for me.
It has been been really impactful working with you. Thank you so much for the energy and care you brought to every session.

ELAINE WILLMOTT, ENGLAND 

I really enjoyed my coaching experience with Emilia “It really helped me to get clear on what was going on and why I couldn’t make the changes I kept saying I wanted to make.

She was warm, friendly, had lots of energy during our session and put me at ease straight away. The session flowed really well and we got into the heart of the topic very quickly which was great. Emilia asked insightful questions and really listened to my answers which enabled us to get clear on what was really going on for me.

This was super helpful and I learned things about myself that I hadn’t realised. 

The session helped me to realise what the deeper reason for me feeling stuck was.

It helped me to be more gentle with myself and nurture rather than force the changes that I wanted to make.

Thank you for your honest and friendly coaching style, it really helped me to get clear on what was going on and why I couldn’t make the changes I kept saying I wanted to make. I loved our session and am so glad I went ahead with it!"

 

EMMA ARGENT, ENGLAND 

When I first connected with Emilia I was totally confused in my career, lacking direction and confidence. My health and fitness were suffering as a result and I was feeling tired, unfit and uninspired by my work life.  

By the end of our first session I knew exactly what it was that I needed to change in my life. And then exactly how to tackle these things in a way I’d never tried/thought of before.

 In the sessions we created actions that went deeper than I’d ever tried before and also were a far more intelligent way of approaching my goals.

They were specific and they took a step back, having me focusing on the things that may have set those goals up for failure when I’d tried in the past. It was a light bulb moment. The biggest change has been my energy levels.

By making changes to my diet and fitness I now feel like I can fit more into my day, and still have the energy later into the evening to tick more things off my to-do list.

I also am performing better in my job as my mind is sharper throughout the day, and this helps my confidence. This has also meant I have more energy; fully present and giving those people my 100%. I really appreciated everything Emilia had to recommend and found the coaching series to be empowering, innovative & productive. Thank you again - you were such an amazing coach!! 

 

INDIA WILLIAMS, SYDNEY 

I booked a Soul Session with Emilia as I wanted to pursue a career change but I needed help gaining clarity and direction. She too had been through the process of changing careers I knew she would be a coach that could relate to my situation and use her own personal experience to help guide me towards my true authentic self.

My Soul Session helped me to establish achievable goals that would help progress me towards a job that I loved. Emilia asked me the right questions which made me really think about the things in my life that make me happy and how I could use these passions to find the right career for me.

Emilia's positive energy and openness allowed me to explore all the things that had been holding me back from fulfilling my potential and by the end our session I had a framework which would help me implement my dream of being self-employed. 

                                       ALICE COOK, ENGLAND 

After packing up my life in London and relocating to Sydney, I knew that the year that followed would be an emotional roller-coaster.
Tiny things that normally wouldn’t bother me felt HUGE without my support network around the corner and I found myself feeling very negative which was reflected in my behaviour. My Australian boyfriend (who I moved here with) did everything he could to help, but unfortunately he was the one taking the brunt of my mood swings, home sickness and rising anxiety.

I connected with Emilia via Instagram and booked myself on for a 12 week coaching series where we talked through my emotions and set realistic goals to help manage my feelings and work towards the Jamee that I wanted to be.

Through these sessions and exercises, I gradually started to change my behaviour and attitude towards certain scenarios and genuinely started to feel more content and more at peace than ever.

Whilst I know I will always miss my family in the UK, I understand that these emotions do not need to be reflected in my behaviour and I can use the skills gained through my sessions to stop and think before old tricks sneak back in. 
I am so pleased that I found the wonderful Emilia and would highly recommend her as a coach to anyone, in any country. We were 10,000 miles apart but it had no impact on the success of our sessions what so ever. 

JAMEE GOULD, SYDNEY 

When I first met Emilia I was juggling A LOT. I was working my full time corporate job, teaching part time at Psycle London, studying for my Personal Training certification, and preparing to start my life coaching training.

I had never worked with a coach before and so my expectations weren’t very strong. I never could have imagined possible what we were able to achieve together.

I was able to dive deeper than I ever believed possible because of the trust she allowed me to feel with her. The way Emilia empowers you, challenges you and cheers you on allows within the first session to feel like you can take on the world, like ANYTHING is possible. The biggest change I saw in myself was the ability to trust myself, being enabled to put into ACTION what I wanted.

I was able to actually break down what needed to get done and make it happen. Because of that I ended up leaving my day job. Something that used to be such a looming, big, intimidating thought, was broken down into manageable and achievable steps. Now I have the confidence that however big my dream may be, I can make it happen.

The main thing I took away was that we all have the ability deep down to get to where we want, but having someone with you, helping you, holding you accountable, it just allows it to actually get done! My dreams have become bigger, my perspective broader. Emilia’s coaching was the glue putting all my ideas and dreams together into a plan that I could run with.

 

It’s hard to put into words what Emilia has given me, because I really have reached more since working with her, than I ever thought possible. She is born to coach and her natural way of uplifting people is something I truly admire.

SARAH ELLIOT, LONDON 

When I came to the coaching series with Emilia, I was feeling stuck in certain areas of my life. I was feeling down about my body, out of tune with the universe, and fearful about money.  

My goal was to create harmony in these three areas.The biggest change I witnessed was movement towards what I wanted to achieve.  I was able to create clarity around how I was feeling and which direction to move in. There is still work to be done, but I feel closer to achieving my goals and that layers have dissolved.

I was really able to hone my focus around my goals through our conversations and her careful questioning. Concentrating on actions and being held accountable was very helpful, I am grateful for the time we spent together and it was an enjoyable, revealing, action oriented coaching series!

STEPH THOMPSON, MELBOURNE 

Everything about Emilia's delivery is grounded, authentic and real. The biggest take aways from my time with Emilia were moving into a real and active place of trusting myself and learning to recognize when I was playing small, sitting in a victim mentality and that I had the power to move into my bigness, to be the person that I was put on earth to be.

When I finished my three month coaching session with Emilia, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that our work needed to continue. Not because I felt like I wasn't enough but because she showed me the gateway to all that I can be. I knew that if she could help me create such profound shifts in my personal life, she could also help set my business on fire.

LAURYN ALLMAN- LONDON

Working with Emilia is a dream. I never properly understood what coaching could offer me and therefore was blown away by the value I gained from working with Emilia. 

This is a woman who knows how to ask the most precise and incisive questions because she is astute and an incredible listener. 

Emilia is confident in her guidance and never seems at a loss for how she can help guide you to your next break through. 

She is warm, positive and never once made me feel judged or bad about myself. 

Emilia puts so much into her work because she truly loves it and wants to help you realize just how magnificent you really are.

None of this is done in a cheesy or flimsy way. 

I wanted to take myself to that next stage in my career as a life coach but  felt like I didn't fully have the skills and knowledge on how to get myself there. I felt like there was a block that I needed to remove, I just wasn’t fully sure what that block actually was.

Emilia is real, honest, and herself; fully, proudly and completely, and gives you the space to be the same. Once given that space, it is amazing the powers you realize you have within you, From there, you really do begin to feel unstoppable.

I realised after the first session that I was part of the block standing in the way of my own process of moving forward with my own business and career as a life coach. 

I’ve become kinder to myself and actually allowed myself to slow down and not rush/push myself or focus on what everyone around me is doing. I have been focusing building my career slowly and with more care, focusing in more on what feels right for me, fills me up & what feels good to my soul. Emilia is a phenomenal coach, you just needed someone to believe in you and to make you believe in yourself enough to bring you forward.Emilia is that person. She is that coach.

LILY BEAUMONT ~ LONDON

Before I started coaching with Emilia I was in a state of disbelief and feeling like a fraud, I felt I wasn’t capable of what my heart knew to be true so in that I hid away from all my potential. I wanted to create an authentic me who had a voice, a community and working towards a business close to my heart ,which is coaching. My business has transformed massively. I am a lot more confident and know who I am not the labels put on me – I am a smart woman who has experience worth sharing and have a skill set to empower people. I am on the right path in my life and I always knew who I was I just neglected her. I have a lot to offer and I can use my voice to cater to my clients. 

I have no filter and have learnt to adapt that as a strength – It is not about moulding to the industry, it is about being me and fearless and trusting that my voice will be catered to that type of audience.I  had a coach that genuinely believed in me and I have learnt that I am a business women who can work on something that is heartfelt, meaningful and freeing to me.

 

~SABRRINA JOHNSON, LONDON 

I have had the most fabulous coaching experience with Emilia, which far exceeded my expectations (and they were high to start with!).  With Emilia’s expert guidance and support we created three goals that seemed scary and exciting to me at first but, as I look back over the three months of coaching, I'm amazed at how my thinking and my life has changed.  I felt in safe hands with Emilia; she listened closely and asked insightful powerful questions that helped me to understand, and let go of, what had been holding me back.  I’d always been a goal setting person but had never before achieved them in such a powerful way.  Emilia’s professionalism and training, combined with her innate intelligence and wisdom, makes her an amazing coach and I look forward to working with her again.

~CLAIRE FERGUSON, LONDON

To put it simply, Emilia changed my life. I came to her after spending a long time trying to improve my self-worth and confidence but I was stuck and just couldn't seem to move forward. I had no experience with coaching before and didn't know what to expect but from the very first interaction, Emilia was so warm and supportive and made sure I knew exactly what was ahead. She encouraged me and helped me achieve things I didn't think were possible! When I first set my goals, I wanted to believe that I'd meet them but to be honest I didn't.

A safe and open space from Emilia where I could reflect and be challenged through powerful questions meant I met my goals and more. She helped me breakdown the things I thought were holding me back and take charge of my own life. Without Emilia, I would still be hiding away and not letting my true self shine through. She is a fabulous coach and I'm so grateful to have worked with her.

~ZOE PATTERSON, ENGLAND

Working with Emilia was an incredibly empowering experience. I was in a phase of transition in my life, both physically and in a career sense and Emilia guided me to realise that I was able to thrive regardless of the circumstances of my surroundings. We worked together to create goals and actions which had significant meaning in my life.

The growth I envisioned at the beginning of our time together was achieved and built upon more than I ever could have imagined.

Emilia builds strong relationships with her clients to truly understand them at their core, allowing for deeper work to be covered and impactful transformations to occur. With the strategies gained from working with Emilia, I now interact with the world around me in a truly purposeful and fulfilling manner, which really is an everlasting gift.

~ MICHELLE WEEKS, AUCKLAND

When I first started with Emilia I was in the initial stages of my business & stepping into actually putting myself out there as a coach and wanting to attract clients in. In my life I was pretty stable – but my mindset around building a business was the biggest gap.

I was struggling with how to structure my business, what I should be doing, how to step into attracting my ideal clients and how to structure my content in a way that was attracting.

I knew after the first session that this was going to be great, for my business, but more for me personally in terms of how I was going to connect with myself, my intuition, but also my business.

I’m now much more willing to just put something out there and see what happens. I was too focused on needing things to be perfect or ready before I put them out there, but since working with Emilia I’ve been open to just popping it out there and seeing what happens.

It’s flowed into so much of how I show up as a person. I’ve also learned to look at things with a different lens, I’ve welcomed in more ease and I’ve allowed myself to be more open to different opportunities, even ones that don’t look “exactly” as I had imagined.

Now I’m coming from a place of ease, curiosity and excitement, more is finding me which is amazing.

I surprised myself with how much I have already achieved, i.e. paying clients, running two workshops, ran a company session, and been invited for more collab opportunities.

Thank you for holding a beautiful space for me, It was incredible and I wished it was longer.

~TASH PIETERSE, NEW ZEALAND

When we first connected I had just signed-up to train as a coach and was full of hope as well as fears & self-doubt about my future and whether I could become a coach.

I wanted to trust my intuition regarding my decision to become a coach as well as find my inner peace and start listening to myself more.

The biggest change is that I know who I am and what I want and that makes me smile every time I think about it. I am really happy with my life and my choice of becoming a coach. Life is a never-ending process of learning, but it is so much lighter & brighter when you know who you are. And above all: I trust myself.

You were so lovely, encouraging, motivating and above all made space for me that I felt safe and could trust you 100%... after just a few minutes talking to you. That felt great.

Further, I loved it that you made me verbalize and write down my goals. It made them tangible.

I have learned to trust myself, to face my fears and to love myself as I am. And as soon as I realised that I got requests from friends of friends regarding a coaching series and started coaching.

Thank you for our wonderful six month coaching series, for being yourself and letting me be myself as well. For challenging, encouraging and motivating me. I am ever so grateful for this life changing & mind blowing journey.

~DOMINIKA PRESCH, AUSTRIA

I met Emilia by pure synchronicity and grace. I am so thankful to have met her as she has made a significant impact in my journey after just 2 coaching sessions. I have spent a large amount of my life involved in the self-healing work that many of us have been called to undertake. However, the paradigms I had built shaded so much of my experience that I needed help outside of myself. Looking back, what I needed at the time was a hammer to knock down the walls I had built. Emilia became the first hammer, and a catalyst to what became a year of fundamental transformation. I met Emilia as a suggestion from a friend. My friend wanted me to figure out if Emilia “was the real deal”. I can attest that Emilia indeed is an authentic, caring, and enlightening coach. She has a feminine energy which is so needed in our lives, particularly when she is guiding us through layers of our consciousness we hardly ever question. I came to Emilia an ungrounded workaholic with little boundaries. After our sessions, and allot of personal healing work, I am a woman owning her own life purpose, happier, healthier and ready to manifest my wildest dreams. Emilia’s help was a key catalyst to the start of a more evolved journey towards self love. Thank you Emilia.”
