You’re a wisdom curator. The way you can reference and weave together ancient and contemporary culture is incredible — you always have the perfect theory or story (or a song or a poem!) But the best gift is your presence — your steady, cherishing presence. You help magic happen for everyone around you.
— Danielle LaPorte, creator of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions

Lianne is both one of the smartest people I know and one of the most loving. She knows — truly knows - how to nurture, mentor, fortify, and teach others. She is wise, and she is silly and fun. If you have the opportunity to be graced by her presence, take it.
— Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big
When Lianne makes a connection with you, it is deep and genuine as her core spirit is all about truth. She is also gentle, generous and kind. If you were to work with her, I believe you would find yourself in safe harbor with someone who always has your back and is committed to helping you experience success in the exact way you most desire.

Since working with Lianne, my life has gone from shades of grey to full colour.

 

Long before I met Lianne, a friend described her to me thusly: Lianne is a (double chest thump) WOMAN. I have come to learn that that gesture means deep, wise, soulful, passionate, curious, powerful, creative, fearless, generous and someone who won’t let you buy into your own bullshit. In sum: the woman you want in your corner. I give thanks that she’s in mine.
— Tanya Geisler
Lianne has the profound and courageous capacity to envision-into-being the potential of others, to compel them toward doing what they can only imagine, and to love them into strength and power they’d barely dare dream. She’s done that for me -over and over again.
— Ronna Detrick

COACHING 

My life has been forever changed by coaching with Lianne. Through our sessions I have been able to contact a whole new place inside myself - the wisest, deepest part of me. I have also greatly strengthened my relationship with myself and I know this will serve me well all my life.

Honestly, life feels easier since working with Lianne. Even when things aren’t perfect, she has helped me access my flow, ease, and see things from all the important vantage points. She brought to our work an immense amount of knowledge, not just from two rich coaching schools, but also in psychology, spirituality and yoga. The wisdom she has gained from her own personal spiritual practice, professional experience, and rich life journey make one on one time with her profoundly enlightening. I don’t doubt that I will turn to Lianne for coaching time and time again in my life – she is an incredible, loving, wise resource.
— Rachel W. Cole, Life Coach & Host of FEAST

 

Lianne's ability to see into the core of me coupled with the respectful and kind way she treads there has earned my absolute confidence and trust.

 

I first contacted Lianne for help sorting through my unhappiness in my work. I was doing work I love but I felt stifled. I wanted a partner who would help me with my decisions and figure out what was stopping me from moving forward in all areas of my life. I felt that I was often making contradictory choices. I’ve been working with Lianne for three years. It’s very helpful to have the consistency of ‘a mirror and a memory’, reminding me of how far I have come and what I have worked through. Lianne holds a beacon of light, during those moments when I am hyper critical of myself. I’m frequently given new ways of looking and thinking about my ways of being. She extends compassion to me that I’m not able to extend to myself. I feel more centered, grounded, capable, clearer. Lianne is my thinking partner and she’s my witness.
— Michelle Royale, Executive Coach Evokeleadership.ca
I began working with Lianne because I wanted help with anxiety and self esteem issues. Because of our work together I now trust myself. I feel more alive, more of who I am. I am myself with much less fear and trepidation. I have a stronger relationship with myself and thus with my family and friends. I feel like a more complete version of myself.

Lianne is a kind, compassionate and honest coach. She will ask you the hard questions and will help you find the courage to answer them. She is so loving. She teaches you how to find that love and compassion for yourself. She is ethical, honest, and full of wisdom. Thank you, Lianne, for lighting the way for me. I love you!
— Wendy, Education Administrator

 

Lianne has provided the most amazing insight into my life that I never would be able to see myself. She has a rare gift of seeing into my soul and speaking words that I cannot articulate. 

 

Lianne was my coach thru divorce, the loss of my father and the launch of my start-up. She fit into all that with fierce, solid, intelligent love. She made our sessions together super solid. They anchored me to myself. I’ve become a thriving consultant/coach because of her. Her intuition, professionalism and confidentiality set the bar high.
— Patti-Jo Wiese, Consultant/Coach

My biggest fear in life is not living to my fullest potential. I started working with Lianne because I wanted to have a safeguard in place to ensure I was being held accountable to this and not neglecting any areas of my life. I also want to be living with intention and vision even if that intention at some points is focused on “rest” and “space” not always just focused on “hustle” and “growth”.

As a very busy entrepreneur with multiple businesses I constantly have huge decisions to make. Often times I feel there are more decisions with huge impact I can make at one time by myself and when I lose my full capacity to hear my own inner voice Lianne gently awakens and raises the volume of my inner core through questions, stories and wisdom. I had no idea that working with a life coach where our focus isn’t “numbers and business” has actually made my business and leadership much stronger. And according to my husband I deal with stress a lot better and respond rather than react as much as I can.

Working with Lianne has been so amazing. I really think everyone should have a coach that they connect with to help elevate them in every aspect of their lives.

Lianne has provided the most amazing insight into my life that I never would be able to see myself. She has a rare gift of seeing into my soul and speaking words that I cannot articulate. She is a perfect blend of compassion and belief that “you can do it”! I often will hear her words in my head when I am working that keep me on course. I always walk away from our sessions together with a sense of clarity and purpose. I am forever grateful for her deep level of love, acceptance and support!
— Lynn Korst, Parent Educator
I contacted Lianne because I wanted help with loving myself truly, madly, deeply; finding joy in who I am and what I do in the world. As a result of our work together, I’m so much kinder to myself than I used to be (more aware of my negative thoughts, and choosing/knowing to think differently). I found the courage to retire from full time teaching in order to pursue my interests as a professional musician. Many of my shifts/results were things I hoped for but didn’t really think could happen: being compassionate with myself, getting so much better at letting negative thoughts go, losing weight, feeling less fearful and finding more courage to take risks; retiring was one that I hadn’t even imagined could happen yet; also, discovering my spirit guide and learning to listen to them and trust them.

I used to feel that things were hopeless; that I was too entrenched in fear, self-hate, and self-pity to ever change. I’ve learned that change is possible, even for me. Lianne has been a lifeline and major support to me. Feeling completely and utterly accepted and loved by her, no matter what, has allowed me to learn to treat myself the same way. This is a miracle.
— Barbara Evenson, Professional Musician and Music Teacher
I wanted help finding peace in the craziness of life, with all it’s full and rich moments, it was busy. I was unhappy and unsettled. I wanted to see and feel joy in the midst of it all. And I wanted to feel authentic in my life. I was (and am) seeking more still, more simplicity, more connection to my intuition, more authenticity. All of which Lianne unearthed in our work together. What a gift. I have also found a growing closeness toward my husband when in the beginning I felt like we were incredibly far apart.

Working with Lianne allowed me to find deep within a confidence in who I am and that the universe is unfolding as it should. I’ve learned that allowing my intuition to guide me will deliver a level of happiness that cannot be matched. I remind myself regularly of the importance of stillness and seeking the space I need to live within my most authentic self.
— Courtney Evans, Director, Greening Our Children; Mother of 3

 

Because of our work together I now trust myself. I feel more alive, more of who I am. I am myself with much less fear and trepidation.

 

It’s hard to describe in words how much Lianne’s coaching and support has meant to me , but I will try...

When I first started working with Lianne, I felt stuck. I wanted help getting unstuck. I wanted a “gentle kick in the ass”. I was frantically trying to figure out what to do next. I knew that wasn’t serving me, but I didn’t know how to stop.

I am more confident in my own skin. When I fall into franticallytrying-to-figure-it-out mode, I am better able to release it, trust, be curious. Working with Lianne has been life changing. When we chat, I feel unconditionally supported, loved, and profoundly understood. Her wisdom is amazing.
— Lindsay Warshaw, Farmer
I began working with Lianne because I wanted help with a difficult life transition. There were lots of variables in my life at the time, so I was looking for a coach who would help me to define what I was looking for to ease the uncertainty I was surely about to dive into. I was in need of support, commitment, flexibility and clarity and I wasn’t looking for answers on the surface. I wanted to dive deep. I interviewed many life coaches in the period of a week, from coaches who offered spiritual guidance to those who offered a cookie-cutter approach to coaching; the unlock your true self using our patented coaching model in only 3 months kind of approach. I’m sure there would have been good in all of those methods, but as a woman who already has a wide spiritual network and a natural tendency to question outcome-based services… I was interested in something different. I knew that there was someone out there who was ready to individually tailor a coaching program to me. When I first spoke to Lianne, I was on my lunch break from the job I was about to leave. I went out to my car and I answered her call. Lianne immediately put me at ease. Her voice was calm, she spoke of wisdom, and she immediately challenged me to show up authentically as myself… no cookie cutter approach. I felt a real sense of emotion and power after our short fifteen minute call. For me, jumping into a coaching relationship with Lianne seemed engaging, intriguing, and heart-felt. I said YES!

Lianne will challenge you in the best way possible. She will do it with love. She will push you to answer the right questions, but she will also be there to support you when you fall down. Lianne will guide you to zoom in on what you need most, but you will always be in the driver’s seat. When you don’t know what to say, she will hold space for you in silence or take you through a guided meditation. Lianne will meet you where you are, and take you somewhere new. She will hold you accountable, but she will never judge. Coaching with Lianne is truly about you. She is warm, but focused. Passionate about your life, but impartial from it too. All in all, Lianne has an incredible capacity for emotional intelligence and it shows in the quality of her work.

Lianne has connected me to my own inner voice and to a core strength I didn’t know I had.

 

When I made the decision to work with a Life Coach I had the opportunity to choose between three individuals who came highly recommended to me. I met with each to determine the best fit and although all three were strong, I was drawn to Lianne’s energy and I was intrigued by her training through the Martha Beck program. I have had the immense pleasure of working with Lianne and the impact she has made to my life has been tremendous. I feel that Lianne has connected me to my own inner voice and to a core strength I didn’t know I had. She has been a critical piece of the journey to having a deeper and more fulfilling sense of self. Which I have come to realize is the layer of foundation that is needed to having a fulfilling life and being the best I can be. Lianne has a unique style that leaves me feeling that I am the driver yet she is there to provide direction when I am unsure what to do next and also doesn’t allow me to hide from what I need to see. She is intuitive and can guide me to the exact place I need to explore. I feel that Lianne is able to draw from her accredited training but perhaps even more importantly she draws from her own intuition to guide our discussions. I have a deep level of trust with Lianne which allows me to go to a deeper and more honest place during our coaching sessions. Lianne provides me with a sense of accountability to move forward and make progress in my goals. She also makes me feel that I have a cheerleader who is there to root for me. I would highly recommend Lianne to anyone who is considering a Life Coach.
— Sandy, Marketing Director/Entrepreneur

 

I felt continuously heard, seen, and held by Lianne the effect of which was both validating and empowering at the deepest levels. Lianne is full of light and love — her generosity of spirit shines through readily.

 

Lianne’s wisdom, her inner knowing, is uncanny in its instinct for unveiling truth. With a gentle, guiding voice and firm commitment to dialogue deeper, she has helped me design a new, extraordinary path for my life. Lianne’s a remarkable, natural coach and a beneficial ally!
— AmyK Hutchens, CEO of AmyK International
In working with Lianne I feel known and understood in a very unusual way. Lianne is able to probe - gently but persistently - to the heart of the conflicts that are causing me the most grief. As she does that, she helps me untangle the knot of emotions that sometimes presents as a sharp lump in my chest. Lianne’s ability to see into the core of me coupled with the respectful and kind way she treads there has earned my absolute confidence and trust. I believe that to feel understood and seen is the deepest need and desire most of us have in life, and I am very grateful to Lianne for providing that for me.
— L., writer, recruiter
I can highly recommend Lianne as a coach. She brought her curiosity, humour, and straight shooting style to our coaching calls. She always helped me find new perspectives when I was stuck, and challenged me in ways that felt safe, supported, and kind of intriguing! I really liked how she cut through some of the justifications I had been telling myself, and saw what I was able to do, even when I couldn’t. (And she was right!) She was a great help to me, and emboldened me in all the right ways. Thank you, Lianne!
— Clare Connolly , Human Resources Manager, Worksafe BC

TEACHING/FACILITATION

I would highly recommend Lianne for any workshop (in person or virtual). I was fortunate enough to be part of a 6 week workshop facilitated and lead by Lianne. During this time, I experienced her grace, patience and enormous insight. It was so obvious to me that Lianne had a great deal of experience and knowledge about what she was teaching and sharing within the workshop. But what impressed me the most, was the way in Lianne had of gently connecting, encouraging and lifting women up within the workshop. My impression was that Lianne allowed women to open up, share and be vulnerable in a way in which they were fully supported. For me personally, there were many light bulb moments.
— Clare Lavender

 

Her wisdom and experience in walking our group through deep processes was truly soulful. I have taken many workshops and seminars and this was truly the most meaningful.

 

Lianne approaches her work with her whole self. Workshops aren’t the most comfortable right off the bat for me because there are new people to meet, an air of expectation of “what will I get out of this” and the knowledge that I will get to be vulnerable in front of these people if I choose it. Lianne creates such a loving space and her energy is one of permission. She is grounded in her heart and rooted to her intention to each individual, so much so, that after the workshop was over, I found myself missing that energy. Trusting her to lead me through my own experience was easy. I am profoundly grateful to have met her and the benefits of the workshop I attended were countless.
— Liz Noell, Dallas, Texas
You have got to take a workshop given by Lianne Raymond! You will get more than your money’s worth. Her wisdom and experience in walking our group through deep processes was truly soulful. I have taken many workshops and seminars and this was truly the most meaningful. Her mastery of the processes took us to a whole new level of depth.
— Dr. Caren Rich
Lianne has a beautiful gift of being able to set a sacred container over the telephone. Her soothing voice emanates caring, compassion, support and non-judgment. She meets each participant just where they are and honors their words shedding light onto the paths of others. I love that one of her CDFs is “cherish” because it is palpable. It embraces the tone of her work and permeated my experience working with her.
— Christina Stinchcomb
I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Lianne. She is the consummate facilitator - graceful, connected, warm - and despite the fact that this was a virtual experience with participants circling the globe, she has a magical way of creating true presence among us all. I’m honored to have been a part of something so special, and recommend Lianne’s work wholeheartedly.
— Emily Verkruyse

 

She can exquisitely understand what you are experiencing and has the depth of deftly and lovingly applying skill and knowledge that will support you through it all in a way that few people can.

 

If you want someone who will make you feel loved, and who really hears you and makes you feel safe enough to be vulnerable? Go and see Lianne. She can exquisitely understand what you are experiencing and has the depth of deftly and lovingly applying skill and knowledge that will support you through it all in a way that few people can.
— Catherine Haymes
I would highly recommend Lianne as a coach, facilitator and trainer. After participating in a 6 week virtual workshop with her (during which I didn’t even speak up) I feel like I know her just as well as I would if we had been in person. Her comforting spirit can be felt through the way she creates a safe space for participants and creates routine connection. Lianne’s workshop delivery is the perfect balance to focus on your own thoughts and feelings and forget that you are in a workshop, but rather, experience it from the soul.
— Krysta McNutt from www.empathconsulting.com
I just participated in the most soul-lifting workshop with Lianne Raymond! If you ever have an opportunity to work with her, don’t ponder for more than a minute- take the leap!!! I promise you will be thrilled with the experience! Lianne has an amazing capacity to dispense information and insights in a way that is both useful and perceptive to the specific needs of her audience.

I look forward to working with her again!
— Alexandra Hill from AuthenticAlexandra.com
Lianne’s coaching/facilitation style is an inspiration. I am in awe of her ability to be simultaneously soft/gentle/compassionate and powerfully present. She has a gift for creating and maintaining the sacred space necessary for truly transformational shifts to occur. I felt continuously heard, seen, and held by Lianne (no small feat in a group of 400+!) the effect of which was both validating and empowering at the deepest levels. Lianne is full of light and love — her generosity of spirit shines through readily. I have such a deep sense of gratitude for the time I spent in her workshop, and my own approach to coaching/facilitation has been deeply influenced by her presence. Do not pass up an opportunity to work with Lianne; She will love into your next evolution!
