Leslie Fluence

After achieving her Masters in Social Work from the Southern University of New Orleans, Leslie Fluence completed further training and became a certified life coach. With a friendly and outgoing disposition, always with a smile on her face, she is passionate about her work, providing others with the tools and strategies they need to navigate through their lives successfully. So, what does she attribute as the reason for being able to do this? Personal experience plays a large part. In fact, it was when travelling through Jamaica when Leslie herself experienced a life-changing moment. She had the opportunity to experience some words of wisdom from a local there who told her ‘it’s never a problem, only a solution’, words which to this day, Leslie still uses with her clients to help them transform their lives. Although Leslie admits that she is able to offer high-level advice, which her clients always listen to carefully, she is equally a good listener herself. She aims to help everyone with their own unique situation. Aside from her clear passion for the work, Leslie is also a married mother of two wonderful grown-up children.

Starting her career as a licensed barber and stylist, it was mainly life experience which brought Yakima to becoming a Cognitive Behavioral Integrative Wellness Life Coach. Within her job as a stylist, she built a high level of rapport with her customers, many of whom eventually trusted her to confide in the most personal of problems. Things which happened in her personal life were also a significant influence on Yakima changing careers. Between the ages of 27 and 28, she sadly lost both her step-father and mother, while at 36, her biological father, unfortunately, passed on. This affected her deeply, mostly due to the deep connection she had with her own mother. It was at this point when she started to heal herself from the trauma and pain she had suffered. After she achieved this, she decided to train in her current position as a Cognitive Behavioral Integrative Wellness Life Coach. She works alongside all of her clients, helping them to heal and lower the pain. Described as having a beautiful energy, she particularly enjoys helping women who are struggling to find themselves or have suffered a loss in their lives.
