Welcome to Coaching to Fulfill Dreams, I’m Lauren Lemieux. As a Whole Life Coach, I work with humans who are stuck, fed up, and done feeling frustrated, professionally or personally, and craving the courage, confidence and clarity to create a life they love, not just tolerate.
Sometimes, our life’s most tragic and consequential events allow for revelations to unfold. My revelation happened during a cold, April rain at my family’s boat yard:
I worked in a beautiful setting with my family. When an unplanned change was made in the midst of our success, the whole dynamic of the company shifted. After months of tolerating the discord, an unanticipated, emotional conversation occurred bringing everything into focus for me.
On the surface, I’m certain many would describe my choice to leave my family’s business as a midlife crisis. On the contrary, my desire to leave was born the day I started working there.
For the 18 years I worked at the boat yard, apathy quietly simmered below the surface. I was complacent. Existing on autopilot after relinquishing control of my life’s direction, experiencing little to no passion or purpose, settling for what was easy.
I mean, I did have a nice view, a great salary, lots of freedom and there were even a few dogs. But, I had settled into a hollow professional life.
There is a HUGE difference between living your life and tolerating it.
My revelation was that I actually did have a passion. I had felt a spark in Psychology 101 in college, yet ignored it. Out of a skewed sense of obligation, I settled for the easy path that was before me.
For me, during that one pivotal conversation in April, the heavy, dense fog of obligation was lifted. I had been telling myself a story. And, in that moment, all my options became clear. Who I wanted to be and how I wanted to live my life meant it was time to move on.
As I shared my revelation with a childhood friend, she made a suggestion as to what I should do next – What about life coaching? My response was, “WTF is life coaching?” So I started poking around online and that was it. What came next brought my true life’s purpose into view. I trained, studied, and earned my professional coaching certifications from the Coaches Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation.
That was nearly a decade ago.
In that one moment, I went from living life on autopilot to choosing to take control of my life’s direction.
And you can, too.
When you choose to partner with a coach and commit to doing the work, you’ll gain the confidence, clarity, and courage to recognize what’s truly possible. Once you realize what your options are, the choice to take control is now yours.
I’d love to hear about what’s holding you back and keeping you stuck. Whole life coaching will get you where you want to be in your life.
“I had no idea what coaching was but I was impressed by Lauren’s ability to listen and how open minded and empathetic she is. In the end, coaching really helped me gain clarity on my roadblocks and helped me understand that every little step counts! It’s totally an experience I’d recommend to anyone. That’s the great thing about it – coaching is tailored towards each individual and their unique aspirations.”
“For weeks I’ve been working with Lauren, identifying what I secretly believed to be my limits. What I have joyously learned is that the only limits I have are the ones I place on myself & there is actually no limit to what I am capable of doing. I’m learning how to embrace being uncomfortable, to confidently take actions and to make decisions that positively affect my life purpose. Without fail, every time I finish my session with Lauren, I take a new tool to keep growing. Thank you Lauren!”
"Lauren’s empathy, openness, and confidence in herself, and others, are refreshing. Guiding me through self-reflection and seeing things from various perspectives, was so rewarding. Lauren provides a platform for you to be yourself and she leads you to discover inner thoughts/fears that may not have been in the forefront."
"“Lauren is an exceptional Life Coach because she is an exceptional human being. Her intuitive nature allows her to see the true potential in her clients – even before they do! This is what Lauren has done for me, and the strategies that she has taught me have helped in just about every facet of my life! I can’t recommend Lauren Lemieux enough. She literally changes lives for the better!”"
"Lauren is born to be a life coach – this is her calling. She works in a professional, approachable, organic way that feels comfortable, yet productive. Lauren’s innate ability helps you identify your Raison D’Etre; to look at your dreams and have them come to life in a concrete, tangible way; realize your goals and find the means to achieve them; identify your fears and realize the tools to overcome them are already a part of you."
“Having a Coach like Lauren gives you the ability to look at aspects of your life from all different angles, some you knew were there and some that were hiding and others that you never saw coming. The magic in her coaching is drawing out those angles and giving you the confidence to know you are on your right path. Thanks Lauren!”
"Her words of wisdom gave me the right push at the right moment to make difficult decisions with my practice. I highly recommend life coaching to individuals who feel stuck or stale in their career or with life in general. I will always be grateful for having met Coach Lauren and the huge impact she has made in my life."
Yours in health,
