Some of the places I have been featured
Hi, I’m Lorraine Hamilton and my clients call me their SECRET WEAPON in their businesses.
I am the founder of lorrainehamilton.net and custodian of the Facebook Group The Coaches Community. I am the creator of Side-By-Side Coaching and Above The Noise Mentoring Program as well as the owner and lead trainer of the internationally accredited Coach School.
I’ve been previously featured in The Huffington Post, Coaching Life Magazine, Inspired COACH Magazine, Raspberry Magazine, stuff.co.nz, Her Magazine, as well as a number of podcasts and international telesummits.
I’ve completed certified training in: life coaching (LCH Dip), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP Prac), Timeline Therapy and Solutions Focused Brief Therapy.
I have been awarded by Conquer Club in both 2015 and 2016, and was instrumental in 2degrees’ 2015 win ‘Most Improved’ company for engagement from IBM Kenexa.
I have 1.2k fans on Facebook, 5000+ members of The Coaches Community and 500+ email subscribers.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from Glasgow Caledonian University.
I bring a unique perspective and curiosity to my work. I have a way of making people at ease whilst gently and expertly challenging their deepest ‘stuff’.
The result is similar to my engineering background. We deconstruct everything and then put it back together better than it was – usually with some parts leftover, but it turns out they were just gumming up the works anyway!
I use simple tools that address powerful stuff and all whilst having fun! (Yes mindset work can be fun!)
My inspiration for this business came from living this business!
I started out as a life coach who had no clue how to stand out from the crowd, and by following the rules, blueprints and advice I just got caught up in Imposter Syndrome and fear.
When I began to break those rules, I realised that I didn’t have any competition and that I could truly do things my way. Once I realised that the information was actually holding me back from being me, I ditched it, followed my gut instinct and starting doing things back-to-front and upside down.
That’s when I began to learn what works, and what made me stand out from the crowd.
Making A Difference
Basically I’m anonymous where I live. All my work is online and global; I like it that way.
One day I decided to get out of the house and do some work in a local tearoom. I love this place. It’s called Over The Teacups and they serve Devonshire Teas on fine china with dainty tablecloths and whilst playing 1940s music.
This particular visit happened not long after it had changed hands. I went in and ordered my lunch at the counter, and the server (who was also the owner) used my name. I thought, ‘Boy that is some customer recall!’ having only been in once since the changeover, but no! She was actually a member of my Facebook Group and on my mailing list, and she watched all my videos!
She said she looks forward to sitting down with a cuppa and watching her, ‘Lorraine videos’!
The strangest thing I think I’ve ever been called in regards to my business is probably a midwife!
The moments where I have wanted to give up have been when I haven’t properly planned and it shows! I recognise this as a mindset challenge though – I need to go all in for it to work.
I’ve committed to just…keep…going for the past few years.
Now when I look back, I can see that I have come so far, there’s no way I’m giving up now!
My business is going to have a massive impact on the world, but not through me directly. It’s going to be through those clients that I work with who are doing the REAL GOOD in the world and changing it.
I am just empowering them to do that as best they can. When they shine, the world shines.
Side by Side – a coaching experience like no other:
- Powerful mindset coaching for high achievers who want to eliminate self-sabotage, silence their inner critic and bust through their upper limits.
- I reframe fear so that the only option is forwards.
- I work in partnership with my clients.
- What makes this coaching different is the way it is structured to make the most of the relationship. Rather than regular sessions, I work intensively with clients, then break for new blocks to rise, before working together again to build resilience. Long term ongoing support is built in.
Above The Noise – mentoring to stand out from the crowd so uniquely and authentically, it’s as if the competition has melted away:
- Drawing on a decade of experience of building my coaching practice online, clients find their own purpose, and their unique way to speak it on and offline.
- Clients claim the confidence and clarity to stand out in a powerful and purposeful way.
- No blueprints or cookie-cutter approach.
- Clients will create a stream of messaging that is irresistible to their perfect clients.
