« Laura showed me how my relationships, job, and emotions were making me turn to food which led to my gaining weight and feeling unhealthy in every way. I didn't know I was doing that. She showed me my habits which I didn't see for myself and taught me real ways to change them. Now I've been feeling much more clear about what and who I want in my life. I am energetic and look forward to my day instead of waking up tired and not caring. I always thought it was about finding the right diet and losing weight but now I know it isn't. »

Yes! You Can! Fears/Anxieties are natural and desirable. Learn how we use them to our advantage!

Methodology

(To see reviews/comments from clients, please scroll down to the reviews section and read reviews from Anne-claire and Richard.)

Whether speaking to one person or one thousand people, the energetics of performance anxiety and stress are ours to use to our advantage - when we understand what they are, why they show up and how to use them to fuel a great performance! Everyone experiences them. If you don't, THAT would worry me!
In Paris 2001 - 17, I worked in English and French with clients from all over the world on ESL and public speaking with a specialization in accent neutralization, vocabulary and self confidence development.
Let's collaborate on your text. Let me coach your delivery. Working alone on any performance can't deliver the potential available. Even Rafa gets coached and improves!
With a passion for learning and natural talent/skills for teaching/coaching spanning nearly 20 years, including the University of Chicago, I know we are all individuals who learn in our own, unique ways.

I invite you to schedule a brief chat at no charge intended to help you decide if I am the right person for you to work with.
Cheers!

Background

An Emmy awarded television, radio and print journalist with an education in theatre/music, I have been coaching and speaking publicly for many years. I will happily share client comments in English and French from clients from San Francisco to New York to Paris where I lived/worked 2001 - 2017. Among my main commercial clients are LVMH, Canal+ and Microsoft.
I invite a brief chat at no charge. Let's see if I am the right person for you to work with.
Cheers!

I am so grateful Laura is on this journey with me. I have lived with food/body related issues most of my life and felt hopeless so many times. A friend recommended Laura to me and I am so grateful! I have never felt so well in my entire life! I needed to find someone who could understand and give me practical ways to tackle and solve this issue permanently, not just tell me "how to eat." These issues go so much deeper. Laura works with all the components: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. She holds me accountable, is a cheerleader and always has encouraging, kind, sensitive words to keep me on track.
Thank you so much, Laura!

Laura is an exceptional coach! We neutralized my accent, the main thing that has always bothered me and made me hesitate to speak in front of native English speakers. Now I'm confident when my job requires me to speak with clients or in front of meetings or groups. She catches old, bad habits and gives practical solutions for correcting them. I recommend Laura for non-native speakers who need to use English in their professions or just for the pleasure of feeling confident to speak well.

I love my sessions with Laura. She really hears the details in my accent and vocabulary errors, coaches me with warmth and humor. She is never judgmental and this has been a problem for me with other ESL teachers. She makes me want to improve, makes it easier to advance and fun again!

English is not my first language and my profession requires me to speak publicly. I always felt terribly anxious and shy about my accent and fearful of not saying what I meant to say, choosing my words correctly. Laura's coaching built my skills and confidence so strong that I now enjoy speaking publicly, something I never imagined I'd feel. Her warmth and sense of humor make it all so natural, like being coached by a friend. HIRE HER WITHOUT HESITATION!

My experience with Laura was awesome! She helps bring out the best of you. She has the kind of disposition that makes you relax and enables you to receive instruction and then be able to perform. I experienced all this in our first session.

R
Richard

Laura helped me draft my speech and provided wonderful feedback to make my speech more lively, natural and fluid. With Laura's coaching, I gained the confidence I needed to do a great job, deliver my message and enjoy speaking in front of a group - something I've never enjoyed, only felt anxious and fearful in the past. Thanks, Laura!
