    “Ella gave me her 100% and genuinely held me throughout the creation process and saw my magnificence when I could not. She is resilient, she gets me, she is always there, fun to work with, a source of strength, ideas, business advice and a faithful companion on whatever journey needs to happen.

    She has this playful, wise, kickass energy about her that is just a delight to work with! Always insightful, motivating, cheering, going deep and transformative in her unique, blended ways that don't hold anything back of what she lived, learned, and felt as she did all the work herself first!”


    Founder + Chief, Driftwood

  • Ellany Lea

    “Working with Ella has been one of the best personal and business decisions I have ever taken. I had been running my coaching practice for over 3 years, and was close to burn out. I love my work but found it challenging to define and honor my time and boundaries. Ella helped me liberate my genius so that I can create the impact I want to AND live the life of freedom I yearn.”


    Executive Coach, Marya Leadership Academy

  • Ellany Lea

    “I feel so much more focused and clear. I decide! I decide who, what, when. I've given myself full permission to rest and live and put myself first. One of the greatest things you had me do was collect testimonials and see for myself how amazing and capable I am. Thank you for guiding me along the way. You've given me confidence and a soft place to land.

    Our fast-track day was exactly what I needed. So much got done! It was so simple, I love how clearly laid out my business is, and I feel sooo much lighter. Sitting down with you helped me get clear on how I make decisions with my time, energy and direction. I am planned and secure! I am capable of freedom! I am not alone on my island, but Queen of my world!”

    I would recommend anyone who wants to create a program online to reach out to Ella. She walks her talk, meet you where you are, liberating what needs to be liberated and is able to take you where you are meant to go. She is an amazing liberator! Thank you Ella! ”

    Founder + Coach, The Courage Agency

  • Ellany Lea

    “Sooooo much has unfolded for me (and still is, and shall continue to) since our fast-track day. You truly unlocked the next level for me to go deeper - trust myself, trust the universe, seek my inner voice and listen to myself. I'm just getting started!

    You especially guided me to let things unfold at the pace they’re meant to. Thank you, deeply.”


    Owner + Director, Big Sky Strategy

  • Ellany Lea

She has given me not only the practical guidance on how to get my nutrition business on its way to becoming a thriving practice, but also the inner skills I need to navigate myself, my time and the world around me. That in itself is priceless.

    I am so grateful you had me do all the inner work before hand. I now have everything I need right here. I feel like I can rock this now. Wanted to say an extra thanks, Ella!”

    Working with Ella helped me rise stronger after some setbacks. I was able to shift my old mindset to a new one: freer, younger, more authentic and wild. I am now more confident. I learnt how to honor my inner sparkle by honoring my time: setting boundaries, blocking time, listening to real resonance, filtering feedbacks. I decide.”

  • Ellany Lea

    “Our fast-track day was intense and full of energy and light at the same time. I got great self-awareness of my being and what I want for myself.

I’m generally the care giver in all other aspects of my life, so asking for help and inviting allies into my world has been life changing. It felt great to commit and follow through.

    Ella helped me get clarity on what I needed to do, how I was going to do it, and most importantly, why I was doing it! I now feel more confident and clear about how I am going to grow my business and I'm sooo excited that I can't stop smiling. ;)”

    Aside from her tremendous business and leadership coaching skills, I would recommend Ellany particularly for her intuitive intelligence and tremendous sense of humour :)”


    Expressive Therapist + Yoga Teacher, Mind Body Solutions

  • Ellany Lea

    “Through her coaching and mentoring, Ellany provided me:
    Simplicity - focusing in on my one big project of the year, instead of diluting on many smaller ones.
    Clarity - about hiring and soulful marketing, especially that becoming a boss-lady is brave, vulnerable work.
    Grace - it's normal to have waves of fatigue and important to do enormous amounts of self-care.
    A Safety Net - knowing I could always call Ellany and get more insight, more clarity, more grace.
    A Roadmap - seeing a clear path and the pieces that need to be in place for life-changing packages”

    Working with Ella has been very beneficial in many ways - both practical and spiritual. It feels really good to have Ella in your corner.

    Her sunny cheery personality always brings light and energy to our sessions, I always hang up feeling re-energized!

    I now feel way more equipped to run my business in a professional, sustainable way and be able to get my message out to the world more effectively. Ella's program was the best investment in myself and my business that I have ever made! A big hearted Thank You!”

    Ellany's process allowed me to create a business and a life that is a reflection of who I am. I had that concept in my mind, but it didn't connect until I walked this journey. I had to first ask myself if I like what I'm seeing and then had an opportunity to create it. Pretty awesome!”
