Lorna Wilson is a breath of fresh air in the coaching world. She is an outstanding coach who intuitively listens for the unspoken and gently pushes her clients to stretch to create a life filled with purpose and joy. I worked with Lorna initially to support my choice to live an alcohol-free life. She met me where I was and quickly, but patiently, helped me gather all my past learning and resources in this area to reach success. Through our work I was truly able to step into a new chapter in this area of my life.
While we began with a focus alcohol free living, Lorna guided me towards creating a vision of a rich and full life filled with all the things I am yearning to create beyond freedom from alcohol. She held me accountable while at the same time allowing me to be and do what I needed in the moment. Lorna is a delight to work with and I am eternally grateful for her support.
I have loved working with Lorna. During this past year, she has guided me with wisdom, kindness, and honesty, helping me to find my way to a retirement that is rich in new experiences.
Lorna is an amazing listener, and she has a range of exercises that have allowed me to open my eyes to my strengths and my weakness with frankness and curiosity.
With her as my mentor and guide, I have improved relationships, started a retirement business, experimented with creative expression, realized that I don’t need alcohol to be brave, and learned to trust myself.
In this transitional period of my life, Lorna has walked by my side. Thank you, Lorna!
Having been in and out of therapy most of my adult life, I found Lorna when I knew I needed some help – not to hash over my childhood once again, but to see the possibilities for the years ahead. I desperately wanted to stop substituting wine for love, widen my circle of friends, and forgive myself for what I saw as a string of failures. But I didn’t know how.
Lorna was patient, kind, funny, and a constant presence when I so needed one. As I came to see I could trust her, I was slowly able to open myself up more, while being gently guided to see some of the warped thinking I was using that had been holding me back, keeping me stuck in a place I knew didn’t want to be.
In time, I stopped depending on alcohol to hide from my feelings (it’s a year next month!),accepted that my “failures” were an expression of my humanity, not inherent “badness”, and what’s possible doesn’t stop – ever.
I would tell anyone to reach out to Lorna. That free 30-minute Discovery call was the first step on my path to now waking up and looking forward to what each day brings. Working with Lorna was one of the best commitments I ever made.
My time with Lorna as my coach was invaluable. Before coaching, I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted to be different but found it very difficult to clarify my thoughts and voice what I really wanted to have and do with my life.
Due to situations beyond my control, the way I had previously envisioned life unfolding wasn’t going to happen now, and I was struggling. Through working with Lorna, I determined my values and have been adjusting how I approach my work and life based on them and took back some control that I felt I had lost.
I appreciate the thoughtful way that she guided me through some self-realization and how she helped me recognize and prioritize the goals I had personally and professionally. Her gentle, yet challenging approach led me to feel more confident and courageous in my work and life choices. The insight and strength I gained through my work with Lorna has been a real gift that came when I needed it most.
I contacted Lorna after hearing her on a podcast, as I was touched by her warmth and wisdom. I was coasting through life and had a new business up and running for a year and wasn’t really doing anything with it. I wanted to make a major life change but couldn’t find the courage to pull the trigger. There was an overarching theme in my life of playing small and living small, it was holding me back, so it was time to invest in myself.
Lorna brought a calmness into our sessions which quieted my inner critic and helped me nurture my inner mentor. I recognized my inner strength to make big changes.
I’ve made tremendous progress in my business and am no longer being paralyzed by fear.
Lorna’s coaching is heart led and laser focused. Each session left me with increased self awareness and the inner confidence. When fear and self doubt come up now, I operate from “I’ve got this” as opposed to “I can’t.”
I have recommended Lorna to several women I know who are in the same situation, stuck in playing small. I’m incredibly grateful for making this decision to invest in myself and hire Lorna as my coach. I’ve been forever changed by her work and the rewards will keep coming!
. Before working with Lorna, I was struggling with a lack of confidence and clarity around my coaching business and faced a difficult decision to end a relationship that was no longer serving me.
I wanted to let go of my imposter syndrome and align my inner feelings with what others saw on the outside. Through coaching, I made a values-aligned decision about the relationship.
Lorna brings a calming, supportive presence to her coaching, creating a safe space. I felt supported and could dive deep to find my answers. Lorna listens underneath my words and then asks thought provoking, evocative questions that challenged me to think and to question beliefs that were no longer useful.
My time in coaching with Lorna was a significant period of growth for me. I quieted my inner critic and tapped into my inner mentor, taking steps outside my comfort zone. I was selected to coach in a group coaching program and faced the challenge with increased confidence.
For anyone considering coaching with Lorna, make the investment. Her non-judgemental, supportive approach will help you see things through a different lens, and you will grow in ways you never thought possible.
I began working with Lorna in a time of major transition in my life both personally and professionally.
Our time together helped me challenge the beliefs that were holding me back and Lorna would often create these beautiful visions of what life could look like when I put those aside. She provided a comforting, and challenging (in the best way), relationship and environment.
I am grateful to have worked together and know that she is an amazing woman and coach I can come back to at any time!
I’ve worked with several types of practitioners, mentors, counselors, therapists in trying to make a focused effort to bring about change in my life and launch a new business.
Lorna has, by far, been the most effective for me. She has an incredibly unique range and complement of skills; she’s at once brilliantly practical, down to earth, and constructive, while also being remarkably intuitive and insightful.
She offers shrewd business advice and guidance for going deep, in a seamless whole. I highly recommend Lorna, as their coach, for anyone who wants real change in their life.”
I found Lorna after exploring This Naked Mind’s website and I felt that I resonated with her story and experience. Having been recently widowed, I felt like my life was drifting and I wasn’t sure what was next for me. I was curious about coaching and learning more about the alcohol-free movement as well as finding a path forward now that my husband was gone.
Today, six months later, I have learned so much through our coaching relationship. I am embracing new opportunities, have done some coach training myself, made the decision to become alcohol free and am enjoying life! Lorna’s style is compassionate and forward thinking. Her humour puts you’re feeling stuck and unsure, I highly recommend Lorna as your coach.
