Testimonials

As a young professional who was finally ready to explore if I really wanted to make a major career change, I sought out working with Lucy. After 9 sessions, I left with a clear understanding of my strengths, skills, the exact characteristics I wanted from my job/career/ life, and the foundation of a realistic plan to make a major career change! On top of all that, I also left with several new and tremendously helpful habits that I continue to practice daily in both my personal and professional life.

I thoroughly enjoyed Lucy’s approach with me, which was a flexible mix of both life and career coaching. Each session is what you want it to be; you are in the driver’s seat! And while I expected our sessions to be mostly career focused, the life-coaching aspects unexpectedly helped me through an extremely dark and difficult patch of real-life work struggles, and provided me with practical, helpful, and sustainable practices and thought patterns. Lucy has such a well-balanced style of being simultaneously firm and direct while also gentle and comforting; I was held accountable and challenged all while feeling completely supported, cared for, and safe. 

If you have any doubts, just book an initial session with Lucy – you will not be disappointed!

If you want to move forward in your work or your life, you should hire Lucy Meadows as your guide and coach.  When I began working with Lucy, I knew that I needed concrete tools to approach my job search differently.   She provided these every step of the way to help me assess and define my interests and skills. These concrete tools and outcomes are exactly what I hoped to find. 

What I did not expect is that as she coached me week to week, I felt a growing sense of self-confidence and started to think differently about myself and most importantly, how I wanted work to fit into my life.  Lucy’s observations led me to realize that I have the skills and experience to forge a new path for myself that should better provide for my family while allowing me the career ladders that were missing in my former line of work.

Lucy will take you wherever you need to go!”

Lucy helped me work through a pivotal career moment when I felt frustrated, confused, and exposed. Through her gentle questioning and thoughtful responses, she helped me develop a framework that put me back in the driver’s seat. Her encouragement gave me the accountability and positive energy I needed to move from logical step to logical step. I had never worked with a coach before and was afraid I might have a cookie-cutter experience, but Lucy was highly attuned to what I as an individual needed. I enthusiastically recommend her.

Lucy is great to work with, and I would highly recommend her! I was really in a rut and felt lost making the decision of, “What’s next?” Especially when it came to my career.

Working with Lucy was a wonderful experience. Under her guidance, I reflected on my interests to better determine what brings me joy, and how to incorporate that into both my professional and personal lives. Using techniques that she taught me, I now take a bird’s eye view of my life to recenter myself and determine what is really important. I frequently think back to the ‘big picture’ view to help make decisions. Lucy’s positivity and zeal for helping her clients had me looking forward to each session.″

Lucy’s work with me began when I was quite discouraged and didn’t have a clue what to do next with my life. Her questions helped me to focus, to set realistic goals, and to make incredible progress getting my small business off the ground. She has a lightness about her that helped me open up to her, and through her, to myself. We did great work together.″

Coaching with Lucy has been nothing short of transformational for me personally as well as professionally. She asks challenging questions; she encourages me to stay focused and positive; she really listens to what I’m saying and gives me the space to say it, then helps get at what’s going on behind the words.″

E.M., Somerville

Lucy Meadows is an extraordinarily gifted life coach who, in minutes, stimulated a small class to hone in on the topics we want to change in our lives. She did this with tact but also conveyed the idea that these are serious issues that require real dedication. I found her approach completely appropriate for intelligent adults who need, every once in a while, to rethink their priorities and to make commitments. The process is both enjoyable and necessary.″
