Hi, I'm Leigh-Anne. I am a Certified Master Coach who specialises in addiction recovery coaching, and working with individuals, families and groups impacted by addiction, substance use, behavioural, and mental health disorders. The focus of my coaching work is to act as an accountability partner who supports and challenges my clients to move forward with their recovery and wellness in a meaningful and sustainable way. This means focusing on how to get the most out of your personal and professional lives, and create a recovery plan that works for you!
I also train and certify professional recovery coaches, as well as running a successful outpatient programme, both live and online. I am also a certified life and business coach, and would love to connect with you to discuss your coaching and training needs.
My coaching ethos is based on cocreating courageous conversations to create sustainable recovery and wellness. Working with my clients to develop workable, manageable plans to support their ongoing recovery from addiction, substance use, behavioural, and mental health disorders.
Please feel free to spend some time on my website, and contact me if you have any questions. I'd love to connect!
All I know is that our stories shouldn't define us and we need to be careful of the stories that we tell ourselves. I am still writing my story and as a coach I believe that the more we work on ourselves, the more flow there is in life. Personal development and growth are an ongoing gift that we give ourselves as we move through the unfolding chapters.
As a master coach I have had so many opportunities to use coaching to assist individuals, families and groups that are invested in creating connection with themselves and the people around them. With a business and education background, coaching has been an integral part of my own personal and professional process. I have more than 15 years of lived experience in recovery, and continue to work on my personal recovery and wellness on a daily basis.
I have completed numerous coaching training, including:
IMCSA Master Coach Certification
U-ACT Certified Professional Recovery Coach
U-ACT Certified Professional Facilitator
Starting Point Master Recovery Coach
Inner Life Skills Life and Business Coach
I hold a Bachelor of Social Science Degree (Management and Economics) from Rhodes, University. I continue to attend coaching courses and I am fascinated by the Neuroscience of Coaching. I completed this course in 2022 through Coaches Rising, and continue to self-study and focus on areas such as mindfulness, neuroscience, psychedelic-assisted therapy, trauma, and the current work of individuals such as Gabor Mate, Brene Brown, Andrew Huberman, Susan David, Adam Grant, Nicole le Pera, Daniel Siegl, and their contemporaries. I am a life-long learner with a strong value for knowledge and education, and spend time studying, reading, and listening to improve my knowledge around substance use, addiction, mental health, human behaviour, and how the human mind works so to better assist and support my clients in their recovery and wellness processes.
My own recovery and wellness are strongly based on the empowering process of coaching, which ensures that I am clear on my personal and professional needs, wants and values and I am able to communicate them with courage and authenticity to the people in my life. Being congruently connected to my purpose and meaning, ensures that I am able to combine my values of education, authenticity and creating sustainable change to work with you in a unique and client-centered way. My story continues and my coaching is constantly evolving as my work expands and deepens. With me learning, and growing and always striving to be an authentic, courageous woman.

Acudetox (auricular acupuncture) is designed to support physical, mental and emotional healing. It eases the physical and emotional symptoms that individuals who are detoxing from habit-forming substances experience. It also supports general well-being and lessens feelings of anxiety and stress, and is helpful for the easing of mental health conditions and insomnia.
Women of Wellness Coaching Programme
omen of Wellness is a coaching programme that has been designed for you! That might sound a little lofty, even a tad arrogant, but in my years working as a coach I have become increasingly aware that there are themes that are common all of us. From taking, or not taking, time for us, feeling unworthy in our personal and professional spaces, and uncertain of our place in our own lives.
WOW! is about reconnecting with yourself, rediscovering your place in your life, and redefining what you want moving forward. It’s about learning to nurture yourself with love and compassion the same way you do for the others in your life. It’s about deepening what serves you and letting go what doesn’t. It’s about giving yourself the space and time to really know yourself, from a place of non-judgement and enoughness, and learning to speak your authentic truth.
