Quick facts 5 - bottom jpeg optmSince my teens, I always wondered what ‘we’ were doing ‘here’ and this led me to read extensively in search of the answers. Over time, and through a process of self-discovery I now believe that we all have a purpose while on earth – to live our dream life, to live our best life … whether that is to be the best mother or father we can be, achieve success in the corporate world, be a world renowned author, athlete or clergyman … it is a calling … something we feel in our hearts. Sometimes we hear the ‘calling’ early in our lives and sometimes it comes much later.

In my case, my talent for inspiring and motivating others only became known to me whilst pursuing a career in training. This led me to developing and facilitating many successful inspirational workshops. My dream is to create a Network of Achievers through my workshops and also through personal development coaching. This is a dream in progress and one I hope you will be part of.

Listening to your heart and following your dreams is never an easy journey, nor is it meant to be…. I am testimony to this as I am sure are many others. It is, however, a journey worth every tear, worth every tumble, worth every moment of doubt and uncertainty. I truly believe that we are all special and are meant to live a life of significance. I think you believe this too…. My passion is to inspire, encourage, guide and support you in, not only achieving success and balance in all areas of your life, but to find your purpose and live the life you dream of.

Clients have said to me, ‘I am blessed to have you in my life’ … and this is wonderful to hear…. I feel blessed to have them in my life, for in me helping them to discover their purpose and live their dreams, they are helping me live mine. I look forward to the possibility of sharing your journey with you.

Warm wishes

    After 21 years of hiding from my own self with clever ways of sabotaging my life through justifying, blaming and procrastinating, I have managed through the guidance of Georgina Laros, my Life Coach, to unlock my own truth. She has given me the tools necessary to break the cycle and emerge strong and true to how I am. Each day brings me closer to being free from all that previously held me back. I bear no illusion in making things happen overnight, thanks to her guidance and I take joy in every milestone I achieve no matter how small. So to whomever feels ‘stuck’, with no direction, I highly recommend my Life Coach, Georgina Laros. Before you know it she will feel like your best friend…..

    There are the fundamental criteria of a Life Coach… and then there’s Georgina. Nothing about her approach to Life Coaching is text book. It is evident that she has studied but Georgina brings her own brand of warmth, sincerity, encouragement, knowledge and life experiences to the table. I have had the privilege of being coached by Georgina and as a result, am seeking out and following my own life’s purpose. Chikita Coach ~you’re an inspiration!

    Georgie has done for me exactly what she promised- to help me work out what I really want, and what I really stand for, and then to give me the tools to go for it. I have really looked forward to our conversations as I know I will be re-energized and refocused, and will also laugh quite a lot!
    As a result of my sessions with Georgie, I love getting up in the morning, I delight in my children and my husband, and I am allowing myself to enjoy the journey.
    Georgie’s guidance, creative approach, support, and honest feedback is teaching me to embrace life and live in a way that truly brings me joy.

    I was referred to Georgina last year – I started the process in July – when I originally met with Georgina I made mention that I felt the light in me had gone out.. I was no longer excited about things such as being a wife and mother a business owner – Georgina made me realise that it was up to me to light that fire again – and that there are steps to take – you need to find direction – well it is now January 2010 and my fire has been well lit for a while now – I need to keep things going and stay on course and if I sway a little all I need to do is stop and get back on track. Thank you Georgina for helping me find myself again as I was lost for a while – you are a true gem and wonderful person.

    Apprehensive at first, holding on to my personal beliefs on Life Coaching, but unhappy nevertheless, I decided to book my first session with Georgina. Georgina’s professional approach changed my whole perspective on the coaching. She helped me realise how easy it is to set a goal and taking small steps and staying focused, I soon began to feel the change. I felt completely recharged and motivated after each session, thanks to her constant positivity and the sharing of her own life experiences and skills. What sets Georgina apart from other coaches is that she is the perfect example of someone living their dream, and if she can, so can we all. If you are looking at doing something with your life and are not sure of how to go about it, contact Georgina. Georgie, thank you for everything.

    Georgina Laros… You are ‘The One’

    Let me tell you my story. I have recently been toying with idea of a mid life career change.I pray everyday that I find my niche. When suddenly a consultation with a certain life coach, takes away my fear and replaces it with a renewed feeling of excitment and determination. I then take it upon myself to investigate this life coaching a little further and Bill Burridge sends me the NIA brochure. I go home thinking, about how I’m going to make it work and how good this all makes me feel and so on…. but something tells me to be 100% sure and to choose the best institute. So I go a little further and emailed ICAS and asked them for institutions that provide life coaching. Last week Thursday, I’m paging through the Benoni city times. I’m sure you know, our local newspaper and by chance read your article about the book you wrote and that you send it, to Oprah as well. I silently wish you well. Then I read on to find out that you are a Life coach yourself. So I immediately put a reminder note on my phone to call you the very next day. Your reminder alarm goes off and I don’t get to call you and tell myself I’ll do so later.But in the mean time, I’m still waiting for confirmation from the universe since nobody knows about my plan. SO whilst I’m living my day to day life. I’m still waiting and getting verrrrryy impatient and fearfull that this positive good feeling is going to whither away unless I do something. Hah! and then I subscribe to the Insights e-zine. I’m scrollling down the list of titles of previous publications when ‘Follow your heart’ gets my attention… I read this inspiring poem and at the bottom, it was signed by Georgina Laros. I laughed so loud with appreciation and happiness.I know what I have to do and I’m confident with the decision I’m making. So thank you, without you even knowing it, you were my sign. I do believe that we all connected in someway or the other. Even now looking at your picture. I’m smiling…

    Georgina has been fantastic to work with, helping me to achieve clarity and confidence during a period of considerable change in my life – enabling me to take the road that will lead to fulfilling my personal goals
    She has helped me to identify issues that have stood in the way of business success and assisted me in developing techniques for working around or through these issues. If you are willing to really dig in and find a fulfilling life, a life you deserve, she will guide you on that journey.
    So my last words to anyone reading this would be to JUST GO FOR IT! =)

    Georgina is my inspiration, she has helped my through the deepest darkest pit in my life, she helped me find true friends, she helps me to see clearly the goals that i would like to achieve in life… She truly is one of the most amazing people i know 🙂
    one thing Georgina taught me that has really stuck, is that no matter how bad a day you are having, looking in the mirror and shouting ‘Megan you are AMAZING’ really does make everything better 🙂

    You can tell people about what you have learnt, but the real reward, what you are actually remembered and appreciated for, is what you potray, and how you live your life. Through Georgie’s wise, kind and caring guidance, I learnt how to be positive & that living out your dreams is as easy as waking up in the morning and believing. Thanks to Georgie, and her fantastic knowledge of creating & setting goals(not forgetting our rewards), I created my own personal ABC system to live by: Attitude, Belief, Commitment. This is not a quick fix, it takes your own hard work to change, but Georgie(being as amazing as she is), helps bring out the wonderful, confident, positive and successful people that we all are. I have blossomed as a person and this has not only fired up my personal life, but has had an extraordinary impact on my work performance, which I have been complimented on by those around me – and let’s face it, we all love doing a good job.
    So Georgie, I must say a true & heartfelt “Thank you”.
    You are a friend, a teacher, a great listener, and a living inspiration to all around you.

    Warm & Happy Wishes,
    Roxy :o)

    When I first started the course, I was still unsure if I should go for life coaching or psychotherapy. What eventually made me choose life coaching was my viewpoint on psychiatry. I am not willing to be judged by what is considered the norm of human behaviour and then probably be given some sort of drug to sort things out.

    Through the insights, guidance and inspiration of Georgina, and some mental images of a brick to the head, she taught me the value of living life according to my dreams.

    Today I am a happier person, I find myself enjoying the process of the unfolding life without pushing my requirements upon it.
    I learned and found that by just handling life as it comes my way, and doimg what is necessary when it is my turn to act, life has become simpler and as things happen to be, all my needs and my wants is and will be met, it turned out that it is just a matter of perception.
    We do not need psychotherapy or expensive drugs to get to our happy place.

    I would recommend life coaching especially to parents for many of the lessons I can now transfer to my daughter, so she can live a life full of potential without making the mistakes I have if she so chooses.

    I read an article about Life Coaching and thought…”THAT’S what I need” and doing some research, found Georgina. What a treasure! We clicked straight away, and she drew out my abilities and potential. When I read my first session now I am amazed..what on earth was wrong with me?? I mean, of course I am capable of all this, I have done it all and more. The spin-offs are astounding. What silly things we are, and all we need is a Georgie to help us break out of that mold and get on with life !!!
    Highly recommended!!

    Testimonial to the worth of Georgina Laros,

    One often hears the word “life-coaching” and automatically assume that sessions are likely to be like a pep-rally, or even worse a room filled with over-eager people with extraordinary positivity-similar to the movie Yes Man

    My experience with life coaching began after the tragic death of my mother from a metastasized cancer in February 2010. My dad had suggested that I go through the program as he had been through it, and was just about to celebrate reaching his goal that he had set at the beginning.
    As far as choosing Georgie was concerned, the decision was easy: she was my dad’s coach, and she was his sister-in-law so I felt comfortable with the prospect of entering into this adventure. Now one might wonder how authentic could my experience had been if I had known Georgie outside of coaching? Well I think that it was even more authentic than most.
    What most people forget is that one invariably makes a deep connection with ones coach, and because Georigie knew many of the people I spoke of in my sessions, progression was relatively easy. Of course, the other side of the coin begs the question: Was Georgie impartial, given her close connection to my family? The answer: Absolutely. It had been a long time since I had encountered someone as sincere, nurturing and full of spunk (seriously she runs on Jet-fuel, next time your Kulula flight is running late you’ll know why 😉 )

    The coach however is only one part of the experience; the other is the stuff you actually learn about yourself and those around you. I can still hear Georgie saying, “You know Ricardo, why not eat a roll at home instead of buying food on campus, it’s cheaper”. I have learnt many skills that help me not only with my interaction with my own day-to-day life, but also with my interaction with others.

    My goal was to enroll for a LLB at Wits, get someone to sponsor me and move in on my own. Today, I live on my own; I have a Merit Award, which pays my tuition, and an unexpected turn was enrolling for a Master of Arts Degree at Wits. Life coaching has helped me to think to achieve, before doing to achieve and it has made the world of difference.

    I heard about Georgie from a work colleague, whom had heard good things via a friend of hers.

    I was at a serious cross road in my life, full of fear and confusion.
    In a moment of desperation and in great need of some guidance I emailed Georgie via her website. Please help!

    I didn’t know what I needed, but all I knew is I needed to talk to someone who could help me recognise my truth.
    I had considered a shrink, but like others whom have written testimonials, I didn’t want to go through countless expensive sessions, pulling out all the dark and reliving it in the hope of some clarity… Medication was also a big no-no.

    Within the same day Georgie and I arranged an appointment.
    After the first session I already felt clearer and the load got lighter.

    Georgie helped guide me through my own thoughts, fears, wants and needs to realise the path I needed to follow to change.

    Change happened fast – so fast it even surprised Georgie!

    Georgie has been understanding and supportive every step of the way. She has given the space to attend sessions in my own time, and she has been flexible with her time too.

    The change I experienced has affected my whole life – every spoke in my wheel of life. I think adjustments (in thinking, wanting, dreaming) are infinite, they can’t stop, neither can change and rerouting your path. Guidance along the way makes the journey much smoother and a whole heap more clearer!

    I was coached by Georgie in 2009 into 2010 and have been kicking up my heels in Italy for the past 5 months as a result. Looking back, every session I had with Georgie was like the next rung in the ladder – ‘upwards and onwards to brighter and better’. I’m living ‘My Dream’ and loving life…and take this opportunity to once again say ‘Grazie mille di tutto’. ‘You are, and always will be my rock in this world’. SmileyLove, Ali x

    At the beginning of this year I knew something had to change, I was alive, but not living. Work completely consumed me. It felt like I was looking at life through a very dirty window. Georgie showed me how to clean the window and now I can see clearly! I realise the window is going to require continuous cleaning, but I CAN DO IT. I am extremely excited about life and now live every moment. Thanks Georgie.

    In January 2011 I took the challenge of studying to become a certified life coach. Without too much direction on knowing where this would take me I hand picked Georgie for guidance and to walk with me on this new path.
    Wow, what an inspiring woman. Even through there are slow times in business, Georgie is always there giving me hope, to stay on top of things and reminded me that through the law of life results always come to those who believe in themselves. She is inspiring and motivating and I intend, through the rest of my journey as being a life coach to have Georgie by my side. x

    In 2011 I took on the wonderful challenge of starting with the New Insights training course. Even though this was one of my lifelong dreams,I soon realised that I was going to need some help on this journey. Someone suggested on the NIA Forum that trainee coaches can benefit from mentor coaches and I contacted Georgie. From that moment on my whole journey changed. We immediately “clicked” and Georgie helped me with planning as well as staying focused and motivated. Georgie took me on with open arms, explaining concepts, brainstorming ideas and sharing all of her expertise and experience with me. I completed my exam and am now busy with my practice clients and Georgie is still part of my life, giving advice and being my soundboard and holding my hand every step of the way. She is truly an inspirational woman and I am proud to say that she is part of my life.

    Dear Georgie.

    When I first met you for coaching I was in a very bad place. Dealing with anger problems and not even sure if I was at the right place.

    And so our coaching started and I could feel weight being lifted from my shoulders and over time I could see light at the end of the tunnel. You have made me a stronger person and I have learned so much from you. Every day at work I put all of it to good use and this has made me a better person and better employee.

    Thank you again for the changes you have encouraged me to make in my personal and professional life – I will always be indebted to you.

    I have recently turned 25 and I completed my Honours Degree and have been working but a question was posed to me by a work colleague “Is this where you want to be and is this how you want to feel?” and my answer was a resounding “NO!!”
    I wasn’t doing the work I wanted to and it was causing strain on my well-being and the relationships with those I care for most.
    I then met with Georgina — AND MY WORLD CHANGED. She showed my that anything is achievable and with the right amount of focus, forward-thinking and the correct approach you can change your life. I am now going back to studying full-time to follow my passion. I am now extremely happy, eager to get going and working towards something that is still and has allow been my passion, and this is all thanx to an amazing woman who wants everybody to succeed.

    THANK YOU GEORGINA, you are exceptional!!!

    Dear Georgina

    After just two sessions of your life coaching, I can honestly say that I feel as if something good has shaken my foundations to the core.

    My feelings of aimlessness, insecurity and self-doubt are gradually becoming overshadowed by a new sense of awareness of the value of the time we have NOW. For the first time in a long long time, I have the reason and the courage to be honest with myself about what I really want to accomplish to enrich my own life and through that, the lives of others.

    Yes, I still sometimes fall by the wayside and lose sight of my goals, and yes, the picture of “what I really want” is still a bit fuzzy around the edges. Old habits don’t get broken overnight and instead of beating myself up, I resort to a couple of the valuable lessons I learnt from you – breaking things down into manageable pieces and acknowledging and celebrating the successes.

    It was only after my first session with you that I realised that, just like having a great teacher at school, us “grown-ups” sometimes need a great teacher to help us make sense of the “stuff” that is our life. So far for me, the coaching has made a good few jigsaw pieces fit into the right place.

    Georgie, thank you for being a great life teacher. Your input, guidance and encouragement means more to me than words can say.

    Yours sincerely
    Janet Hartley

    I came back from overseas with absolutely no idea what to do with my life. I did not want to fall into the same old ruts that leave me always feeling so “unfullfilled” for want of a better word. I was one of those people that thought “Can’t someone just tell me what to do” – well I found that someone, BUT Georgie did not TELL me what to do – she COACHED me. I was out of balance. Thanks to Georgie, I can gratefully say I am more balanced in all areas of my life. Sometimes in life you just need that one person to put you back onto the path and let your wishes and dreams guided you the rest of the way. Georgie is that person.

    Georgie’s positive energy and optimism is contagious and uplifting! Through the life coaching process Georgie has helped me in real and practical ways, more than the various therapists that I have been to. Her honesty and encouragement during the coaching has assisted me in identifying and dealing with a number of issues, all the while providing the tools to help me focus and remain motivated.
    Georgie, thank you so much for the value that you have added to my life and that you continue to add though the lessons that I have learnt during our coaching sessions.

    I never realized how important Life Coaching could be Georgie, thank you.
    I found your work to be brilliant, wise, insightful and practical, great fun to talk to, and with the impressive ability to get to the root of any problem. Georgie is incredibly intuitive, often recognizing perceptions and views that I had no idea I held. With a fun and creative approach, she gets results and my goals and objectives started opening up before me. I had not worked with a Life Coach before and so it’s difficult for me to provide a comparison, but in the short time I’ve known Georgie I’ve become happier with myself and started to truly live life on purpose. Georgie is understanding, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, innovative, resourceful and positively challenging. Georgie’s straight forward approach has added value to my personal and professional life, and as a consequence my better understanding of myself has empowered me to add more value to the lives of others. Georgie’s coaching helped me to evaluate my situation by taking a closer look at my core values and belief system. Through this process, it became clear to me which direction to take. Together we established realistic goals, and my whole outlook at life and work as a result has hugely improved.
    While, like most things in life, you get from personal coaching only what you put into it, there is always the “X” factor, the quality of the life coach you choose to lead you through the process. The right coach can contribute knowing and analysing ones exact needs and in so doing assisting enormously towards the process of maximizing the benefits received from the efforts one puts in to the entire coaching process. For me, Georgie has been that X factor.
    In short, Coaching with Georgie has been extremely worthwhile and if you want clarity; inspiration; motivation; guidance, or all of the above, I can highly recommend Georgie.

    I would like to thank Georgie for her exceptional life coaching and guidance she has given me throughout my coaching. I have never met anyone so passionate about what they do than Georgie, she not only coaches but also uses her practices in her daily life. After my sessions I felt alive and that I could accomplish anything I put my mind to. I really enjoyed my coaching and I would recommend anyone who is looking at wanting to make changes in their lives or just to learn to be positive and upbeat to try Georgie!!!

    Georgie, thank you for all your time and effort with me – I will definitely be back in the new year!! Reach for the stars!!!!

    When I think back, I cannot believe that I was nervous when I went for my first Life Coaching Session with Georgie six months ago. Georgie immediately made me feel comfortable and at home with her warm smile and genuine interest in me as a person. I started studying to be a Life Coach, but it seemed like an enormous task for me to get through the course while having a full-time job. I didn’t want to let go of my dream though, so I decided to contact Georgie.

    I already felt extremely excited and energized after our first Coaching Session. Georgie assured me that I would be writing my exam in six months time. It seemed impossible at the time, but she was right. I achieved my goal and I passed my exam! During this time I also achieved many other goals. I also learnt a lot about myself and how I could change my way of thinking and doing things to improve my life. Georgie was always available with good advice and lots of encouragement. I can honestly say that Georgie was one hundred percent committed to my achievement. With her help I achieved more in the past six months than I ever imagined!

    Georgie is an excellent Life Coach because she is always professional, yet she also is a wonderful caring and compassionate friend.

    Thank you, Georgie. You have touched and changed my life for the better!

    This is a testimonial with regards to the great work that Georgina does in her life coaching sessions; I joined the Life Coaching program with Georgina at the beginning of November. I had asked to do the life coaching as I felt that I had lost direction in my life, nothing was working as I would have liked it to and I felt that I was going backwards instead of steam rolling forward.
    When I finally met Georgina, she explained straight away what the program entailed and what the outcomes would be if I took the course seriously. She asked me to be honest with her and explained that this course was for me and no one else and that what I said and felt was between her and I and she would never betray the trust that we would build over the 13 sessions.
    I now see Georgina as a person I would like to have around me for life as a friend and a person to go to for advice on the best way is to make the most of any situation as well as how to deal with issues in a relaxed and forward thinking way. The way Georgina coaches is a refreshing change from what most people are used to and it came as quite a shock to me. Georgina never fails to smile and looks at the positives in any given situation.
    Georgina is always excited for every session with her client and is always upbeat. She finds a way to make all sessions exciting and interesting and her belief is that positivity is key to all that happens in one’s life including her own. Georgina always has an uplifting verse or poem that she will throw out and it will always suit the situation at hand and will never cease to surprise you.
    She has a gift of making people walk out of every session with a new view on life as a whole and makes you feel like you can take on the world and at any point, you will be prepared and ready for any obstacle that you might encounter along the path to success.
    Georgina Shows you that life is not just about being successful with materialistic objects such as money, cars, houses etc. but to be successful in your relationships, your beliefs and values, and this is enough to make anyone that attends these sessions prosper for life.
    I feel without Georgina’s talent I would not be where I am now. I have got a great job, my income as more than doubled, my relationship with my girlfriend could not be better as well as my family. I have not felt this good in years and all that I want has come to me. Don’t misunderstand me – all that I have achieved so far has been hard work but without Georgina’s expert guidance, I would not have achieved all of this in the space of seven months.
    I highly regard Georgina and I challenge everyone that wants to take up this course to take it seriously. The benefits are immense and there is no doubt that you will benefit.
    “Most important of all, to be successful in life demands that one makes a personal commitment to excellence and to victory, even though the ultimate victory can never be completely won. Yet that victory might be pursued and wooed with every fibre of our body, with every bit of our might and all our effort. And each week, there is a new encounter; each day, there is a new challenge.”

    Georgie’s warmth and her generous spirit set me at ease quickly. She helped me set goals with such an infectious passion and enthusiasm that I could visualize those goals more easily.

    I am the richer for her input; her contributions have been really helpful and have helped me see things from a new perspective.

    A great Big Thank You!

    It took me a while to make up my mind about doing the life coaching course with Georgie, partly because I was stuck in a rut. I didn’t believe in myself and was afraid to rock the boat and make a change in my life. I am so very grateful that I eventually did take charge of my life and make the decision to join. Not only did I make a wonderful positive friend in the process but the life skills I have learnt is absolutely priceless. The constant support, encouragement and motivational emails, check ins and sms’s kept me interested and on track.

    I have discovered who I am and what I really want in my life, I have also learnt that I am in control and in charge of my own happiness. I have learnt to let go of little things and have learnt that no matter how big or small a goal is, everything is achievable if you put your mind to it and focus on what you really want.

    While ticking off the little goals I put my mind to I realized that there is much bigger, exciting things I want to accomplish and will accomplish in my life. I know for a fact that I am definitely on the right path. I am 100% happy in all aspects of my life, and the best part is I am pregnant! (something I only ever dreamed of). I am overwhelmed with joy and happiness. I really am on top of the world!

    Sure there has been a few speed bumps along the way but with Georgie’s help and guidance and tools she has supplied me with, nothing and no one is going to stand in my way of achieving my dreams. Without this course I would still be stuck in a rut, being a people pleaser and hitting my head against a brick wall.

    Thank you Georgie, I am super amped and excited and can’t wait to get out of the bed every morning and live my life to the absolute fullest.

    Great big hugs
    Bronny 🙂

    Where to start… Just a “WOW” program to participate in. I met Georgina at my 1st session and we immediately got on so well! Such an amazing woman and life coach! I was lucky enough that my current employer sent me on the course.

    I only realise now that the program was a life activator for me, like a trigger for life to begin and that there should be no hassles. Life and all its ups and downs became more clear to me and achieving my personal short term goals became easier.

    Nearly all areas in my personal life including my health, my partner, vocation, money, emotional and spiritual grew and I embraced it with open arms.

    The “NEW-INSIGHTS LIFE COACHING PROGRAM” opened my eyes to achieving everything I want out of life. I am now ready to take on its challenges.

    A must for everyone!
    Thank you Georgina, SIMPLY FANTASTIC!

    From the start to finish, Georgina, you excelled with my course. When need be, you were always on the other end of the phone.

    You helped me over hurdles I never thought possible. Goal setting, so installed through the course, are still my action plan.

    Georgina, you set me in the right direction with your dedication, inspiration and support.

    Thank you for your undivided support and attention to detail.

    Dear Georgie

    I would like to thank you for this wonderful experience that we both started in January 2014. It is amazing to see what I have achieved, with your assistance, in this short space of time.

    We set milestones and goals, that, at first, I thought were impossible but was amazed every time I reached them. From making a decision to change the house I had purchased in February to my graduation in September, I have learned that if I have a detailed plan for each goal, I can achieve it.

    Thanks for the books you have loaned me, for me to learn even more. You have not only been the guide but an ear that listened to my dreams and helped make sense of them. What you have shared, are life skills that I will never lose.

    Thank you for allowing yourself to be used in this way. You have not only helped me but my family for generations to come, as they now have a different daughter, Mom and future grandmother, with so much confidence.

    Again, thank you for the experience. May you remain blessed.

    “Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”

    These words stuck with me since I heard them the first day on a motivational video in 2012. At first I could not understand it although I really wanted to. I knew that the message was powerful but I just could not comprehend it. The words “greatest fear”, “inadequate” and “powerful beyond measure” struck a chord with me. At that stage in my life I was 36 years old, a mother of two small children, in an abusive marriage, trying out a new career path and I was not happy. Circumstances forced me to take action although I didn’t know which way at first.

    After a divorce and a lot of life changes I found myself two years on in 2014 feeling afraid, worried, confused and depressed. I felt that I could make things so much better but I didn’t know how. My first thought was maybe a psychologist and more meds but since I have been on that road before I wasn’t sure that it would be any different this time. So I “googled” Life Coaching and that action changed my life. I met with Georgie and from the first moment, I knew that this was going to change my life. Besides her attentive and intuitive nature, Georgie understood my concerns from her own experience and we bonded over a cup of coffee.

    The whole process was so insightful and cleared up all my issues from the past. I was able to deal with the past and make peace with it. From there I was taught the skills to make life more productive and goal driven for myself and my two children. During my course I completed the first year of my studies (six subjects) with two distinctions and got promoted at work. The change in my attitude was so obvious and everyone noticed. I went from fearful, uncertain, no confidence and depressed to happy, content, goal driven, confident and full of life. Sure, the fear and doubt does occasionally slip in but I now have the tools to address these issues and deal with them.

    Looking back, I realise that the life coach makes a huge impact in your life and I thank my lucky stars that I found Georgie. I have found a true friend in her. Her tactical, straight forward approach made us bare all the ugly truths early and deal with it. She is a phenomenal women, friend, person and coach and I am the lucky one for knowing her.

    With Georgie as my guide, I now finally understand the statement above. Fear makes me feel inadequate even when I am not. Fear keeps me from being powerful beyond measure and that the role of fear in my life is within my control. I realised that greatness is already embedded inside of me and I have to let it out by using the key (my ability) in my hand. To have the courage to face my life’s challenges and having the tools to deal with problems is a feeling of confidence and power and for that I thank you Georgie

    Lots of Love

    Dear coach,

    First of all I want to thank you for opening my eyes to a whole new world. I have been given this opportunity to change my life by someone that believes I am far better than what I reflect. Having this life changing experience with you has opened so many new possibilities to take back my life that I had buried after my dear brother passed away almost 4 years ago.

    You taught me that life is mine and I must grab every possible opportunity that comes my way. I strongly live by the beliefs and rules we have set together.

    Life begins outside your comfort zone …. true words so often spoken. I have formed this safe guard around myself because of my disappointments and heartbreaks in my past. Well, time does not wait for no one and I am moving on to take my life back again.

    My sessions with you were uplifting and always full of laughter. With the greatest of pleasure I will refer anybody to you that has no idea of how to take back their life.

    I will always look out for your poems as not only did they inspire me, but I treasure the way that they reflect on my own life – thank you for always sharing them with me.

    Thank you so much for your devoted time you have spent with me. I will always treasure you as you are the best coach and friend one can have in life.

    Love you lots, always

    Dear Georgina,

    Thank you – two simple words which cannot begin to convey how truly grateful I am to have you as my coach and that you traveled this journey with me.

    When I first came to you, there were some areas in my life I wanted to work on and the sessions did not only give me the tools to use on a daily basis, but they also changed the path on which my new life will follow.

    You have shown me that anything is achievable.

    Thank you for the wonderful experience.”

    I met Georgie almost a year ago and I bravely decided to take on her 13 module programme for Personal Development.

    The first step for me was to commit to the programme! I am proud to say that I went the distance!

    I feel my personal growth has surprised me and I feel a whole lot more confident and unafraid of what lies ahead!

    Thanks Georgie! Wishing you all the best and I’ll see you next year!

    Before I was introduced to Georgie and the life coaching course, my life was chaotic.

    25 years I’ve spent trying to figure out where I fit in and what I want to do. I’ve achieved many things in life but never knew there was an actual process one could follow to achieve more. Living in the past will never get you there. It’s all about the now and the future.

    This course has given me the tools to use in every situation and enabled me to become who God created me to be.

    We were not created to just live day by day and watch how others succeed in life but in the end, it’s up to us – ask yourself – how badly do you really want it?

    I would recommend life coaching to any person who is struggling to find their passion & purpose, who can’t let go of things of their past, who is feeling down & depressed on a regular basis.

    Life coaching will teach you how to deal with everything negative, to eliminate it and make more space in your life for a purposeful, fulfilling, and happy life. A goal driven, positive life.

    According to the New Insights Life Coaching website…

    “A life coach is there to guide and inspire his or her client to bring about a clearer understanding of their aspirations, goals and life purpose and to effect the necessary changes in their current and future behaviour to ensure the realisation of those goals and aspirations.

    With the motivation, support and caring that a good life coach can provide, most people are capable of achieving far more and leading more fulfilling lives than they would if left to their own devices – human nature being what it is.”

    Georgina Laros has been exactly this and more! I was referred to Georgie by a close colleague who was coaching with her at the time. The changes I saw in him were so motivating and inspiring. I immediately set up an appointment with Georgie, excited to see what would come of it.

    Meeting Georgie was like sitting with an old friend, conversation flowed easily and she just “got it”.

    She understood how I was feeling, the rut I was in and how frustrated I was at not being able to move forward. I had goals but they seemed so far away and unreachable. With Georgie’s encouragement and firm belief in me, she convinced me that together with her help and my commitment, we would reach new milestones.

    In my desperate attempt to reach my goals, I had an awful habit of starting things and not completing them. When I began my coaching with Georgie, I had 4 online courses that I had started, a website that I was trying to build and various other interests that I was dabbling in. It was all just a chaotic and unproductive mess!

    The first thing Georgie did was make me write out my goals. I had to make it clear to myself exactly what it was that I wanted to achieve within the following 3 months. I also had to write out a 3 to 5 year plan – my ultimate goal!

    That alone was so liberating!

    Once I knew what my goals were, we set up a series of milestones and action steps that would help me get closer to them. I was given homework on a weekly basis that was aligned with everything I am so deeply passionate about. As I reached these milestones, my self-confidence levels soared! I started seeing the results I had been trying so hard to achieve on my own. The difference was that, the steps were smaller, more manageable and I had guidance.

    My favourite session was on breaking down my negative beliefs. Georgie made me realise that I could believe anything I wanted to. My negative beliefs were just excuses as a result of fear and a lack of self-confidence. All my beliefs are developed and adopted by choice. I get to choose what I want to believe!!

    With all the tools and resources that were shared with me, I surprised myself with what I managed to accomplish in 3 months.

    I completed two of my online courses and as a result I have qualified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist – one of only two in the country. My website is up and running, although it will continue to be a work in progress. I wrote 3 blogs with this being my fourth one. All this while working a full time job and being a wife and mother to my beautiful family.

    YES, it can be done!

    I am super excited to be on this journey of self-discovery, working towards my ultimate goal. I have only just witnessed the tip of the iceberg, what is waiting for me underneath is going to be an exhilarating adventure.

    I’ve learned so much about myself during my coaching sessions with Georgie, she is such an inspiration!!

    She uses her own life experiences as examples, and this helped me to not only relate, but to open my views on different ways to handle situations.

    Thank you so much for all you have done for me.

    I was a bit hesitant when I first heard about life coaching but I have such a thirst for bettering and understanding myself and I had all these strong feelings, beliefs, values, ideas about myself, vocation and life in general, which I was battling to channel , so decided to take the first step and contact Georgie.

    Coaching has really given me a stronger understanding of who I am, my strengths, my weaknesses, values & beliefs & provided me with the tools to work through and with them.

    It has helped me on such a deep level – to uncover all my blocks, limitations (mostly on an unconsciousness level) and to work with them in changing my life for the better.

    I’m extremely grateful for the past three months of coaching with you Georgie. You have an amazing gift to make your clients feel secure, safe, supported & comfortable throughout the course.

    To anyone thinking of hiring a coach, it will be the best thing for them. BUT… They must commit 100% and be prepared to put in the work. It’s not always easy dealing with certain issues or weak areas in your life or personality but the result of working through them is so rewarding.

    I really enjoyed the course and will continue to share my experience and the positive influence that coaching has had on my life. And I will carry on recommending your services Georgie! Thank you again.

    I was at cross-roads in my marriage and for many reasons I was unhappy, confused and unsure what to do. Because my husband kept saying that everything that was happening was my mistake, I decided to go for coaching – anything for us to be happy and have a normal family again.

    I, looked on the internet and saw this ladies face (Georgie Laros), decided I wanted to contact her, and so emailed. She replied immediately, which was a sign for me that this is meant to be.

    I, met Georgie, and what a wonderful person, she made me feel so comfortable and at home in her office and after our first meeting, I asked if we could do the programme in three months, to which she agreed.

    I started on the coaching programme with the intention of reconciliation, and that was the goal I set. To work on myself to improve my marriage.

    I, had my coaching sessions every Saturday – and loved my homework that I had to do weekly, which made me think and dig deep sometimes. In the early stages of the programme, I would share what I had learned with my husband to include him in the process and because he initially showed an interest. However, after a couple of sessions, he showed less interest and there was very little evidence to support him wanting a reconciliation.

    As I continued with the programme, I learnt much about myself, became emotionally stronger and regained my confidence and belief in myself – and as a result I realised that my original goal was no longer what I wanted.

    I booked an appointment with my attorney half way through the coaching and filed for Divorce – I had had enough and realised that although I wanted more out of life, I didn’t, as I originally thought, want it to be with my husband.

    I completed my Course and because I enjoyed it so much, I also did the VIP day with my coach which gave me clarity in terms of how to move forward in a few other areas of my life.

    Georgie was the most excellent coach and yes she was the third one I tried, and she made me feel so comfortable and supported me throughout the programme.

    This was the best money spent and the best course that I have done, and she changed my life, saved my life and opened my eyes and gave me the tools to make my life a much happier place.

    I got divorced, my ex moved out and I sold the house and bought and moved into my dream home in Pretoria – which was on my ‘Vision Board’.

    I’m not confused anymore. I am meeting a lot of new friends, have reconnected with members of my family with whom I initially had estranged relationships, and I’m travelling a lot. It’s sad to start really living at the age of 51 but it is also so much fun and I love it. I owe everything to my coach who helped me get through this mad time in my life.

    I, still have some dips in life, but during these times, I WhatsApp my coach and she guides me through and gets me back on track – she is my Angel.

    Love you lots,

    When I decided to go to Georgie for Life Coaching I was at a crossroad in my life. I was not enjoying my job, I felt depressed and hopeless. I had no clear picture of the life I wanted.

    Georgie was exactly what I needed. Her gentle, yet direct approach, guided me through many of the barriers that were holding me back. She gave me the tools I needed to build my self-confidence to a point where I started my own business and started writing my first book. She helped me develop a skill set that I use on a daily basis to stay positive, goal-orientated and live a life I love.

    My time with Georgie was life changing. She offered support and guidance on a daily basis. I always felt she related to my journey and offered fresh ideas and approaches to constantly keep me moving forward and motivated.

    If you are looking for life-changing coaching then Georgie’s wealth of experience, depth of knowledge and incredible passion will certainly take you there and so much further.

    I have worked with other coaches before, but Georgie is most definitely the best coach I have worked with.

    I requested, from the start, for her to be “tough” on me since I really needed somebody to hold me accountable. She did exactly that, but she also guided me through the coaching process with the perfect balance between being tough and also being flexible and compassionate when it was necessary.

    She was also very creative in coming up with different strategies to help me achieve my goals.

    Georgie has a lovely sense of humour to keep things light, whilst being serious enough to ensure results.

    Thank you.

    At the end of 2016 I felt like everything was too much. My mom googled until she found life coaching by Georgie. I decided to go, because I mean what’s the worst that can happen?

    In the beginning of our sessions I questioned Georgie a lot and wondered when is this going to start working. After a few weeks I noticed the difference in the way that I was feeling and behaving. Georgie was there to help me see my goals in life and what life is about. She helped me re-discover who I always wanted to be.In 2017 my life changed thanks to Georgie.

    I know life coaching is not only about the coach but also what you do to reach your goals.

    The other thing I know is that if it wasn’t for Georgie I don’t know if I would have gotten through 2017 with a positive mind. I know now who I am and what I want to do. Thank you, Georgie, for helping me through everything.

    Thanks again. Janet

    A couple of months ago I was given life coaching sessions with Georgina from my Sister who reckoned I needed help.

    I do agree as at that point in my life I was convinced that the world wanted to kill me and hated me. Nothing I said or did was ever good enough. I hated my job and boss so much it was making me miserable and then to top it off I did not want to even go home as that was a nightmare on its own.

    Georgina showed me how I was allowing all of this to negatively affect me and that I can take control of my life and be happy. I was shown a new way, a much better way to take what is thrown my way and turn it around to benefit me. I am what is important, and I came to realise that when I am happy with me and life, then everything seems so much better. There is a silver lining around the dark clouds if you look closely enough and they are there to show me that when it gets hard (which it sometimes does) that it is not life attacking me but maybe just directing me in a different way.

    I had 3 wonderful months with Georgina and I am so grateful for everything she has shown me and taught me as I am truly a much better person than I was, I am not so negative anymore and I enjoy my job now. My boss is still the same, but I can now deal with him. My life has improved so much, and it has also improved my home life.

    I don’t think about where I would be right now if it was not for the life coaching classes, I think about where I am and where I am going to be in the future. It is awesome and something I look forward to every morning and night. Life is not as bad as I thought it was and there is so much I now look forward to.:)

    You are truly special.

    Dear Georgie,

    What an awesome experience. I had no idea that attending the 12 week life coaching course would change my mindset so much. I am more positive and happy than I have been in years.

    Thank you very much for your guidance and helping me find my confidence and ‘myself’ again. You have taught me so much. One of the many tools which I have learnt, is that I am in control of my life and although outside matters may influence certain things, it’s my choice to be happy & successful in whatever I do and to overcome challenges.

    Georgie, you are a professional, compassionate, sincere and an exceptional Life Coach and I thank you for your energy, your guidance and for being a positive influence in my life.

    I highly recommend life coaching with you.

    Kind regards

    Georgie… I am sure that you have heard this 100’s of times before,but you are such a special human being! You embody so much of where I still want to get to and live life with such dignity,generosity and love!

    Your impact on me can’t be put into words, your honesty in making me see how ridiculous I’ve been in the way I looked at life and the importance of ‘Spike’ will NEVER EVER be forgotten! Realising for the 1st time that I was my own worst enemy in achieving what I wanted to through my beliefs and goals etc. has been incredible!

    You have given me a new lease on life , a way to see that I have a Hell of a lot to offer all those around me and that I can do it by being who I am and what is important to me, not what I think is NB to others and perceived impressions from all around me ..but to me!!

    I go back and read the notes I made for myself before seeing you the 1st time and I just shake my head… I don’t even know what to say about that guy (I will definitely tell him to go see Georgie if he ever shows up again, Hehe!)

    I think the best point to say about you Georgie is that you have found and are doing your true calling in life, never have I come across another professional and thought to myself that they should be doing nothing else in life!! You are so incredibly blessed in what you do and especially in How you do, I honestly do not believe that any other Life Coach would have gotten me where I am today!!

    There is still so many thoughts and things I want to say as I feel I still haven’t quite explained how grateful I am for you in my life. But I am going to be quiet now,and live life with a smile on my face knowing I am still going to do so much good going forward !

    I will forever be grateful for the impact you have had on me!
