Lindsey began her career in financial services, and although she was doing well, her work wasn’t entirely fulfilling. When her job changed, as part of her professional development, Lindsey found herself in an operational management role she hated.

When she found herself with thoughts of driving her car into a ditch and injuring herself, just enough so she didn’t have to go to work, Lindsey realised it was time to ask for help.  LindseyReed

Her employers we incredibly supportive and offered her coaching and counselling.

The coaching Lindsey received changed her outlook on life and the direction of her work.

Listen below to our conversation to hear Lindsey’s amazing story.  She also shares her wisdom on confidence and living a productive, stress free and fulfilling life.
