Michala Leyland spent 5 years in the education sector and over 12 years in the charity sector using her high level training and coaching skills before taking the brave step to leave her well paid leadership role and become an accredited self-employed Solution focused Coach. Using her varied skill sets and love of all people's personal potential she set up Wood for the Trees Coaching to support and inspire women to lead the calm, content, or wild and adventurous, enjoyable life they deserve.
Michala is an accredited Life Coach, a motivational speaker, author of Bounce Back from Burnout, founder of the Solution Focused Sisterhood & creator of the Clearing programme. She has 18 years’ experience teaching, training and coaching in the education/business and charity sector. She is passionate about helping women make positive changes, sod the shoulds, in order to avoid feeling overwhelmed, and create a definition of success that works for them.
When she isn't supporting fantastic, like minded ladies to lead the life they love and free themselves from the perceived stresses and strains of being a modern woman by sodding the shoulds and working out their musts, she can be found playing in the woods with her little treasures and the love of her life.
She is also a singing sensation (in her own head) and lover of all things musical (Eclectic taste doesn't even cover it). Having started a Facebook page for her business she is now officially addicted to the groups she's joined and had to impose strict boundaries on when she can use it in order to grow her business.
