I’m Veronica Leonardo and I’m a mindset coach.
I empower and support women who have experienced significant and impactful challenges in their lives, and are now looking to reconnect, rediscover and recreate their new normal.
This can be hard when you’re lacking confidence to make the right decisions for yourself; thinking of the future is difficult particularly if you’re feeling somewhat disconnected from yourself and your intuition; the shock of your experience has left you fearful and anxious of stepping forward and forging your path ahead; and you’re unsure what you want your place in the world to be now that your perspective in life has shifted.
I have experienced every single one of these emotions myself. I have worked with a coach, mentor and counsellors to nurture and nourish myself physically, mentally and emotionally to bring me clarity, confidence and empowerment to now be able to help others with similar experiences.
I have long been a believer that coaching, counselling and mentorship are critical for our holistic wellbeing and growth in life. It took a major life event to see the full impact of all of these and how they will always play a role in my own personal development.
Being a mindset coach is a calling, and I came to this vocation following two significant challenges in my life. The first was two unsuccessful attempts at IVF in my late 30s. Having only been married 12 months, it was a confronting time for us both, and the first step in an awareness that the life we assumed we were to have just wasn’t going to happen.
Six months after the IVF attempts, came the biggest shock to us all – family and friends included. At 40 years young I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, which had already spread to the lymph nodes in my armpit.
I am now in remission and working to regain my ongoing fitness. I haven’t wanted cancer to be the everything in my life, although it has “reset my button” completely. As difficult a challenge as it’s been, it has also been my greatest gift.
Personally, I would describe myself as a lover of life, good food, and even better company. I love spending time with my family and friends, walking my fur baby along the local river…water is my healer.
I look forward to empowering and supporting you on your mindset journey of reconnection, rediscovery and recreating the outcomes you want and deserve for yourself.
