Coaching Explained

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself!

Moment by moment, breath by breath, heart beat by heart beat, your life slowly passes you by. Are you existing or truly living your life to the fullest? Is life filling you up or tearing you down at the moment? You weren’t born with a downloadable instruction manual (heaven knows why not), but instead left to figure it all out yourself. It’s up to you to learn how to overcome obstacles with ease, create your own magnificent story, nurture your body, engage your mind and nourish your soul.

Life can be draining when you’re not doing what you love or finding it hard to push through challenge after challenge. The stress it can cause can have serious implications on your health, wellbeing, family and social life.

Instead, wouldn’t life be more fulfilling if you felt like you were on course, doing what you love, achieving goals and enjoying beautiful relationships. You’ve left the challenges or sticky situations of the past, well back there in the past  and are FREE to create the life you love. Coaching for Personal Growth can help you achieve this by facilitating deep internal change and give you the resources (and a bucket load of tools) to better navigate through life’s daily challenges.

How Can Coaching Help?

Easy! When asked the right questions, you will discover the right answers.

Coaching for Personal Growth is a relationship between a professionally trained coach (in this case Larissa) and yourself.  Real change comes from within you so Coaching is a meaningful conversation that can help you through the mud and draw the answers from within (not just open ended “talk therapy”). It can help you figure it out and take meaningful, powerful action towards the outcome, life or business you desire. It will increase  life satisfaction, self confidence and fulfillment.

Whatever challenge you are experiencing right now, I can assist you in gaining that longed for relief  and overcome your emotional charge or current stessor.

Thanks to my work with world renown Human Behavior Specialist Dr John Demartini and the Australian Institute of Life Coaching, I can take you where no other Coach has taken you before. From our first consult you may start to view yourself, your life, business, relationship, fear or challenge in a whole new refreshing way.

One of my clients described what I offer as  “Deep transformational change”. Then one of her clients called me up and asked “I want what she’s having, can you do the same with me”! “Absolutely” I replied and I can offer the same to you.

Angela Raspass’s Coaching Experience

How can I describe the experience of working with Larissa?
How can I possibly encapsulate all the ways in which I have been stretched, challenged, supported and expanded in sessions with this remarkable woman over the past 2 years (and onwards).
Larissa has helped me to overcome fear, let go of misbeliefs, recognise my personal power, own and value my traits, identify and reduce my triggers, reframe “failures”, be kinder to myself, turn the volume down on my Comparison Queen, realign my business with my values and so much more…
There is deep practical magic in what she does – she has an intuitive knack of tapping into exactly what I most need to look at, uncover and explore every time we meet. It’s not always comfortable to delve into the territory of personal growth, but it’s always worthwhile. I leave each session with a breakthrough in understanding, confidence, clarity, calm and resolve.
She is my secret weapon in business and life and I highly encourage you get her on your support team today!

Coaching is like Product Development

And YOU are the Product!

Larissa is my go-to coach whenever I get all up in my head: emotional, too scared or too unconscious to get out of my own way.

I always had a level of self imposed judgement about my body that I know holds me back in many ares of my life. That was until I sought out coaching with Larissa.

Who Do I Work With

I work with people from all walks of life experiencing emotional upset (including anxieties and stress), mental blocks (in life or business), who’d like to aim higher in life or business, gain confidence, clarity with their mission and purpose, would love enhanced physical vitality or gain relief from their past pains so they can move forward and create a life of inspiration.
I work with a wide spectrum of people from teenagers, entrepreneurs, many coaches, allied health professionals, Mums, celebrities and more. If you are willing to do the work then that’s a great start.

A word from Larissa

“I want to see people have the energy and create the right atmosphere in their minds, without the stress and self judgement,  to go out there and do what they truly love in life”

Kellie O’Brien’s Coaching Experience

Before I started working with Larissa, I’d only just began delving into the importance of working on your mindset to accelerate business and personal growth. I commited to a year long program with her, enjoying monthly consults.
I’d already identified that I had some issues with feeling responsible for clients and perfectionism. I’ll admit, during sessions with Larissa I often wonder “where is this leading?”. And then she pulls out a piece of pure gold that just opens my mind to a completely new way of thinking that changed the way I see myself, my life and/or the way I approach my business.
She seems to have this incredible ability to ask the right questions to uncover things that are lying just below the surface. The things that you don’t really look at, but are impacting your thoughts, feelings and outcomes.
 The tools she has given me have truly transformed my life, my way of thinking and what I feel is possible of creating in my business and life.
– Kellie O’Brien, online marketing and client pathway coach
“When you know that bad things aren’t so terrible and good things aren’t so terrific, you can be quietly grateful for whatever occurs. Balance is neither pessimism nor optimism.”
Dr John Demartini
Your challenges are your gifts, hurdles are your stepping stones and your desperation can become your inspiration.

Jenna Kennedy’s Coaching Experience

Larissa came to see me as a physio client. I asked what she done for work and she told me she is a Life Coach. This sparked something inside of me as I have always dreamed of starting my own business but I really lacked the confidence. I asked her if I could make an appointment, and I’ve never looked back.

I was unsure where to start and Larissa helped me beak down the massive idea I had into small manageable steps. She helped me build my self confidence which has not only helped me in my professional life but my personal life as well.

I have now opened my own Physiotherapy Practice and Pilates Studio. She has helped me shape the business to be a success and also to fit in with my lifestyle. I can’t thank Larissa enough for what she has done. If it wasn’t for her coaching I may still be working hard for somebody else.

Kylie’s Coaching Experience with Larissa

“Larissa is my go to coach whenever I get all stuck up in my head and too unconscious to get out of my own way. From our first meeting I was feeling more connected to myself and my vision than I had in years. She has a beautiful mix of talents including straight talking, sifting through what seems like the mess in your mind and somehow brings it all together to get you through that icky stuck in the mud feeling.
Each consult bought about a new insight, which left me feeling lighter, more inspired and refreshingly released from past “baggage” that was holding me back.
I am a mind set coach myself and certainly know the value of working with a skilled coach to bring about the change that is needed to move into living the life you see in your mind”
– Kylie Patchett, Mindset coach for Women Entrepreneurs 

Bianca’s Coaching Experience with Larissa

“I first met Larissa when she was a special guest speaking at a marketing event I was attending. I really enjoyed listening to her speak about the laws of the universe and sought her coaching services out. Being an athlete and in the fitness industry there is always a level of self imposed judgement about my body that I know holds me back in many areas of my life.
Larissa gave me a huge epiphany right from the very first session, which was like chopping down a massive tree that was standing in my path and had been holding me back for so many years. I really can’t describe the feeling when that happens, but it’s absolutely priceless”
– Bianca Aiono

Andrea’s Coaching Experience with Larissa

Over four years ago my world turned completely upside down. I needed to start unravelling all of the knots and start working my way back to the truth, my own truth. Larissa had been on my radar for a while, so the day came where I decided to take a risk by reaching out to Larissa for some coaching.

The experience was profound, damn scary and I felt so vulnerable working on my own stuff, but I knew I needed to own it in order to move forward.

Larissa and I worked together using the Demartini method and Coaching. This woman knows her stuff. I felt safe in her hands and she’s authentic, which I love so much. I respect her work and am so grateful that I had and will have her on my cheer squad going forward.

Needless to say, my world today is a very different place and I owe a lot to Larissa for her gentle guidance and helping me own my shit and restoring the balance back in my life.

Larissa, thank you!


Linda’s Coaching Experience with Larissa

I had reached a stage in my life where I knew that if I didn’t seek some help it would be detrimental to both my physical and mental health.  I felt like my wheels were spinning and I was stuck in the one spot not able to move in any direction. You know husbands, kids, grandkids, working, the whole lot was going on, being pulled from pillar to post.

I was suffering from anxiety, a lack of motivation, feeling physically ill and I was very confused about the direction and steps I needed to take to get my life back on track. I knew what I wanted my life to be like but I didn’t know how to make it happen.

So, as I had been Larissa’s yoga classes and was aware that she was a life coach I booked some sessions with her. At the end of my first session I felt like a load had been lifted and there was some patches of blue sky in amongst the foggy haze I was living in.  There was a light at the end of the tunnel.

Most importantly Larissa encouraged me to listen to and acknowledge my body as our body sends us messages all the time that things aren’t quite right and if we keep going when we should stop and rest we’ll pay for it big time. The other thing Larissa instilled is it’s okay to so NO, something I’ve struggled with my whole life.  It’s amazing how this alone has improved my relationship with my family and friends.

Larissa was able to draw out of me what I wanted my life to be like (I was amazed at what came out of my mouth) and provide me with both the motivation, strategies and the starting point to make it happen and not to sweat the small stuff.

Thanks to Larissa my mental health has improved as has my physical health.  I am now studying part time, heading back to work soon and I make sure I do something every day that is just for ME.

I definitely recommend coaching sessions with Larissa.
