First-hand stories of healing
Leslie is a gifted, intuitive, and knowledgable practitioner. I first met Leslie over fifteen years ago when she worked for me as both a Pilates/Yoga instructor and a front desk manager in my physical therapy practice. Her exemplary skills in compassionate communication led me to encourage her to further her work in healthcare as she has an innate ability to support others who are suffering. She furthered her education in psychology with expertise in somatic experiencing and I have been referring patients to her ever since. Her strong ethics, deep knowledge base, and exemplary skills in compassionate listening make her a leader in her field.
I really was struggling to find myself and my place in life. I'd changed jobs, my son was away at school, I'd been dealing with some health issues and put on weight. I was just trying to get through each day and and didn't know who I was anymore.
I think most helpful was that we started with small attainable goals that when taken all together became huge achievements.
I didn't feel like I was overwhelmed with any of the work I was asked to do and so much of it was reconnecting with all that I loved about myself and things that made me happy.
One of my biggest challenges was that I didn't believe in myself in the way that other people believe in me and now that's changed.
I still have a way to go but I value myself now and I'm able to bring that value to my daily life and my relationships.
Instead of going to bed each night, stressed about getting through another day, I'm excited about each day and when things do get challenging I have the tools to deal with it.
Leslie's work is full of integrity and it heals. Her skills and knowledge in combination with her ability to be fully and unconditionally present is profound. She has the rare ability to address an issue from multiple levels. The healing I have experienced by working with her whether in yoga class, group meditation or one on one spiritual work has taken place physically, emotionally and spiritually. She has gently helped me find my way after feeling quite "stuck". Leslie lives what she teaches and this is inspiring and motivating. She really is a rare find in teachers. Having Leslie as a teacher has proven to be a sweet gift to myself.
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart....:)
I decided to try Leslie for one session, then immediately signed up for 3 months. My time with her has been so beneficial, I just renewed for another 6 months!
Leslie started working with me on my posture and showed me breathing techniques and meditation practices to manage my lower back, abdominal, and neck pain. These methods also help me manage my migraines.
I highly recommend Leslie Porter to anyone who is suffering with stress-induced pain or low energy. Her Holistic Lifestyle Method can help you recover and feel more relaxed and in control of your day.
I worked with Leslie for 3 months. I had not worked with a wellness coach before, and I contacted her to learn to take better care of myself and improve sleep. Even though I thought I was eating healthy, she taught me about improving my meals. We also explored several, daily habits including breathing and sleep exercises. Even a few months after working with her, I have continued the habits that she taught me. I eat better, exercise more often and sleep better than before. Leslie is passionate and knowledgeable about wellness, and she customized a program for me that changed my life for the better. I am grateful for her, and I recommend anyone who is curious to try working with her.
Since working with Leslie, friends and family have recently commented that I seem less angry, more present with better eye contact…
I have also noticed less blaming of others.Best of all, my husband says I’m becoming more fun!
Recently, I worked with Leslie. First, I would like to say she has top-notch follow-up skills and has kept in contact with me to see how I am doing. Also, she helps my mother.
For my Mother: She hasn't done anything else differently, and I don't think she is consistent with the protocol, but she went from looking really worn out and tired (I was getting nervous) to seeming a lot brighter and energized.
Myself: I’m noticing a bit less pain and inflammation with my injuries I’m hopeful this will continue to improve
Thank you, Leslie
Leslie's style of training me is thoughtful and diligent. I truly feel that I have been through a serious [Pilates] workout after my hour with Leslie and we both agree that I have been making progress over time. I definitely feel stronger and I have actually lost an inch or two in my waist!
