Hello, I’m Lusanna. A life coach, business woman, and mum to two amazing young adults, who are my world. You'll find me down to earth, I love to laugh, have fun and enjoy the freedom life's adventure gives me. I am passionate about my coaching amongst other enjoyable things such as the outdoors, music, and having fun. Others describe me as charming, gracious, and perceptive, with a bubbly nature and an unshakeable optimistic personality. These are qualities I believe support me in life and business.
My thirst for personal development and self-education has been my driving force. I’m passionate about life and the people in it, and I have a natural talent of helping others take action and find their purpose. Having found mine, I can say with so much gratitude, I live an amazing life where a feeling of love, warmth, and collaboration is what inspires me to help others create a positive shift in their life that allows them to take more care of their needs.
Life has not all been plain sailing. Life has dealt me my fair share of ups and downs, and I've experience incredible heart ache and pain, never more so than in 2018 when within a 12 month period my whole world turned upside down. My marriage ended—a marriage which had lasted several decades—I moved out of a house I'd lovingly renovated and believed to be our forever home, and I relocated to a new area to start my life over. Only, the universe wasn't done yet because this was followed by the loss of my both parents from this world, within weeks of each other, parents I had been caring for over the years. Despite these traumas, I have found strength, through my coaching and with the love and friendship of people around me, to heal and move on with a new and exciting chapter of my life. Hey, when life deals you lemons, as the saying goes, make lemonade! How I got to here. Before becoming a coach I was an area manager for one of the top building societies in England, This was both challenging and rewarding. The position came with large amounts of responsibilities, such as, countless regulatory exams, courses, a sales target of £13m, developing each member of my team, and improving all-round performance. I built a reputation of setting up and running highly successful teams. Moreover, I loved having a career and enjoyed helping my team find their potential. I’m proud to say, I was the catalyst for many to forge a successful career in their own right. After the birth of my beautiful daughter, I returned to work and became this frantic, busy career woman with a family and home to run. And, as if my days weren’t thoroughly packed, I also found myself juggling the renovation of our house and studying for essential exams.
Time rolled on, and with the birth of my second child, a beautiful baby boy, I continued carving out an even more successful career for myself. However, I began to feel I was the only one holding it all together—believing if I eased up it would all start to crumble around me. I worked long hours to keep up with the demands of the job, whilst doing my best to be the perfect wife and mum, fearful if I let go I would be letting others down. I used to be full of energy, enthusiasm, and loved adventure, yet I didn’t seem to relate to that person anymore. My needs always appeared way down the list, and I always seemed to be playing a part: a wife, mum, daughter, career woman … the list was endless.
It took me a while to realise all the pressure I placed on myself had changed me. Now, the changes I made might not be the same changes you need to make. My point is. I became aware I had to make a decision, be more responsible and take more care of me. My changes led me on a journey of self-discovery and self-development until I eventually found my purpose. I enrolled to study and become a life coach. I also worked extremely hard with my own coach to get where I wanted to be. After, what seemed like, endless case studies and exams I needed to pass during each module, I finally achieved a high distinction and qualified in the spring of 2006. My journey as a coach truly began then. Over the years, my coaching has taught and given me so much more than I imagined, which is why I'm dedicated and committed to empowering others to take action and make positive shifts in their lives. I want to help you take more care of your needs and balance professional success with personal happiness, where love and contribution come as second nature and lead to a life you enjoy and without having to sell your soul to get it. One important thing I have learned is when you are looking for change the first place to start is with you.
