How can coaching work for you?

“I have tools to create healthier behaviors!”

“I joined Leslie’s group coaching because I am the person who likes to start things, and then move on without finishing. I bought a new photo scanner and still have stacks of photos to scan. I have a beautiful Christmas stocking to embroider for my young daughter – Santa still has half a beard and she is now 25. Now, I have started a project that really matters – completing my doctorate degree. I knew that if I did not change my habits, I would end up with lots of hard work and no degree. I also am the person who thinks that I alone can change deep-seated habits. When I heard about Leslie’s group coaching, I actually considered that maybe I need help addressing the behaviors that are holding me back. I am so glad I took the leap and joined! I leave each session with a better understanding of my behaviors, as well as tools to deconstruct them and create healthier ones. I also love hearing what the other participants say about their journey. Sometime it is hard for me to put words to my own thoughts and feelings, but it helps to hear others verbalizing, or stumbling too, as I do.”

-Michelle H., Associate Director

“I navigated a family crisis with clearer eyes!”

“I am so grateful for Leslie’s coaching! Despite being a successful professional, I was often plagued by doubt and vague dissatisfaction, and unsure what to do about it. Leslie helped me to solidify my core values within the first few sessions. She helped me to recognize how my daily efforts were or weren’t working towards those values. Mid-way through our sessions, I had a family crisis. Leslie helped me to navigate that with clearer eyes. Leslie has just the right balance of compassion, encouragement, and “telling it like it is.” Don’t go it alone – coaching with Leslie is a valuable tool that really enhances your life.”

Jennifer K., College Biology Professor

“Our family moved forward after some struggles!”

“We used Leslie for family coaching to help us move forward after some struggles that we had. Leslie listened to our needs, guided the sessions in a manner that addressed everyone’s issues while respecting our needs, and supported us by helping us set relevant goals. I really appreciated working with her and, if we need more assistance in the future, we all agree we will contact her first.”

“I shed the things that were no longer working for me!”

“We always know when things are not going well in our lives. But sometimes we simply can’t figure out why! Leslie brought a new pair of eyes to the problems I was facing. Just like an athletic coach, she sought out my strengths and helped me utilize them. She also gave me new information and strategies for redesigning my response to stressful challenges. Leslie helped me realize that I was limiting myself and that I needed to examine my beliefs and standards and formula new ones more reflective of who I am now. Based on this newfound understanding, Leslie gave me the support and tools I needed to move my life in a different direction. She helped me shed the things that were no longer working for me. Leslie is highly knowledgeable, well spoken, and considerate. She worked with me as I am. She never directed or passed judgement. The benefits of working with Leslie are countless. Coaching with Leslie has truly changed my life. I am beyond pleased.”

“I regained my footing after my cancer diagnosis threw me into a state of confusion!” 

“I consulted Dr. Bosch when my cancer diagnosis was confirmed. Shocked and in a fog, I knew I needed a game plan for coping. First, we defined what was most important to me in my life. This helped her work with me to go beyond the lifestyle advice we all know and to work out a game plan for just what I needed. Then, Dr. Bosch walked with me step-by-step suggesting clear simple actions I could take. This constructive support ensured that I never felt helpless. I learned how to think and act in all this confusion. Over my time with her, I felt myself gaining strength and balance from her gentle coaching, learning skills that continue to help me day after day.”

“I experienced deep spiritual, relational, emotional, and vocational growth!”

“Working with Leslie was exactly what I needed! When I started our sessions, I often felt confused, unsure, and pressured. Though I had many wonderful things in my life, I just couldn’t settle into enjoying them. Over just a few months, I feel more confident and self-assured than I ever have. Coaching has allowed me to experience deep spiritual, relational, emotional, and vocational growth. Leslie was a joy to work with and I truly could not have gotten here without her guidance!

“I received a job promotion and coaching helped me during the transition!”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better life coach. I was mostly looking for professional coaching to help guide me through the first few months at my new job, which is always stressful. Leslie is a great listener and helped me successfully navigate my first 3 months. I learned a lot during my sessions. I highly recommend Leslie. Also, she was always punctual and very accommodating. I will be going back to her for sure.”

“I regained a sense of control over my life!”

“I went from working 65-hours a week, and barely getting 3-5 hours of fitful sleep at night to working 40-hours a week and consistently getting 7 hours of restful sleep every night.

Instead of feeling exhausted all the time, now I have a renew sense of purpose and passion in my personal and professional life.

“Coaching proved a lifesaver when I was quarantined in Uzbekistan for 6 months!” 

Bosch Integrative Wellness Testimonial by Jennifer“What was supposed to be a vacation turned into a nightmare when the pandemic hit and I was quarantined in Uzbekistan for 6 months. The stress during that time was unbearable! Leslie taught me a variety of strategies that helped me see the experience as an adventure. This shift in perspective allowed me to actually enjoy the experience, which I thought was impossible. Checking in Leslie weekly allowed me to decompress and set manageable goals. The strategies I learned helped me remain calm and engage in healthy behaviors. Leslie was present, warm, and genuinely caring. I can’t imagine what would have happened to my mental and physical health without coaching. Instead, I emerged from the experience stronger than before. I can manage stressful situations so much better now. I feel proud of myself and hopeful about the future. Coaching with Leslie has been a lifesaver.”

“I’m free from the beliefs that used to drive my fears!”

“I began working with Leslie in the midst of a personal identity crisis, hoping I wouldn’t need to take antidepressants. Leslie’s facilitation of the integrative approach brought immense clarity and peace into my life at a critical time. Leslie’s wealth of expertise in human development and psychology coupled with her active listening skills and ability to facilitate discussions built a trusting space where I could discover truths about myself that I was afraid to face. Now, I am no longer confined by the beliefs that used to drive my fears. Throughout our weekly sessions, Leslie was my cheerleader, accountability buddy, and anchor. Again and again, she brought me back to my purpose, celebrated my achievements and lessons learned, while giving me permission to choose, at my own pace, how I could be successful. I would highly recommend Bosch Integrative Wellness to anyone at a crossroads in their life.”

Thus, I created a workable and highly personalized strategy for tacking the stressful situations in my life. Leslie’s encouragement made the process fun and enjoyable!

“After retirement, I created a Dream Space!” 

“I recently retired with a long list of interests but too little direction. Since then, organizing my time and varied projects has been an overwhelming balancing act. Leslie helped me to prioritize what is most important to me and to identity the underlying meaning behind my desire to create a “Dream Space” studio for myself. Leslie’s gifts for appreciating my skills and interests, sharpening my focus and developing a set of action steps with me produced an achievable plan I can use to help me accomplish my goals. I enjoyed working with Leslie. She brings enthusiasm, curiosity, and sincere interest to the table. I highly recommend her and her services.”

“I feel more in control of my life and my outcomes!”

“Being a young adult, I often felt overwhelmed with expectations and doing the “right thing.” Working full time, going to school full time, and getting married, I began to feel like every time I put one foot in front of the other, I was being pulled back like a dog on a leash. I was still putting one foot in front of the other and going through the motions, but I wasn’t in control. While working with Leslie, I began to re-identify with myself and to tap into my own sense of right and wrong. Leslie helped me reconnect with values and attributes that I had carried all along but had forgotten to utilize. Not only did I relearn how to use them, but how to claim them as my own. Now, I feel more empowered to make my own decisions. I feel more in control of my life and my outcomes. I attribute my success to Leslie’s wealth of knowledge in human development and her active listening throughout the coaching process. I recommend working with Leslie in any area of your health that’s lacking. Working with Leslie today could have a huge impact on your health and well-being in the future. Why wait? Start today. You’ll be glad you did.

Taylor Castel De Oro

My exercise routine has been established and I’m really feeling the benefits. I feel stronger. I have more energy. I’m calmer and I’m happier. If you need a boost to get started or help staying on track, I highly recommend Leslie’s services. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll reap the rewards. You’ll be glad you invested in yourself! ”

“I put self-care first!”

“As a social worker, I work long hours with really sick people, which is really stressful. I was feeling exhausted. As a busy professional, I struggled to find the time to get outside and relish it all. I was reluctant to try coaching because I just didn’t have time for yet another obligation. But I liked and trusted Leslie so I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! Leslie worked with me to clarify what I wanted most to change, specifically. Creating and sticking with a focus can really be challenging but it makes all the difference. Being accountable to Leslie kept me on track and helped me put my self-care first.

“I have learned so much about myself!”

“Leslie has been a dear friend and mentor of mine for over eight years. Leslie’s ability to use developmental theories, to shed light on why people do the things they do, has been extremely eye opening, validating, and encouraging. Leslie is warm, funny, and very relatable. She’s nonjudgemental, which makes it really easy to talk about challenges you might be inclined to keep hidden. In addition to her PhD and coaching training, Leslie has tons of real life experience and insight. Her ability to draw on all this information is remarkable and extremely valuable. Trust me, I have applied her vast knowledge to many aspects of my life including my divorce, which proved a difficult transition! I highly recommend Leslie’s services. If you’re on the fence, take the plunge! You’ll be glad you did!”

“I improved my communication with my wife!”

“My wife and I were having some difficulty communicating. We read a few books about communication but we just weren’t getting anywhere. I was reluctant to try coaching because I didn’t know what to expect. But after the free initial consultation, I decided to give it a try. Great decision. Leslie worked with me to understand and practice something called “non-violent communication,” which was news to me. Since hiring Leslie, my confidence has grown and my wife is so much happier! Although I was skeptical at first, I’m now convinced the process was worth every penny!”

Steve Foster, Math Instructor, University of Arizona

“I strengthened my resiliency!”

“I’m an adult educator and part-time yoga instructor. I worked with Leslie to get back in shape after an injury. Although Leslie didn’t function as a physical therapist or a personal trainer, having an additional professional to hold me accountable and to celebrate successes with was priceless! She was an enthusiastic and positive coach! In addition, during the pandemic, working with Leslie really helped me make wellness a priority. The integrative model allowed me to see how getting enough sleep, eating properly, exercising, and connecting with loved ones served to shore up my resiliency and empowered me to keep teaching and supporting others during this unprecedented challenge. I highly recommend Leslie’s services!

Erin Galyen, PhD

I feel more hopeful than ever about being able to put my mind to something and achieve it. I’ve learned so much about myself and am happy I decided to invest in myself. I highly recommend Leslie’s services!
