Amanda Coburn

I have been a medical social worker with over 20 years of expertise in adult mental health and substance abuse conditions.

I love the opportunity to participate in people realizing wellness and achieving their goals and dreams. Knowing first hand how the Life Design Program facilitates this, I became a Certified Life Design Coach in 2017 and offer individual and group programs.

Why Life Design?

I created many new external changes in my life through Life Design, the biggest impact occurred with my “internal world.” Before Life Design I identified as an old soul, shy, introverted and socially inept. I had daily anxiety and low-grade depression. I was a homebody who lived within an 8-mile radius of my home to keep safe from the fear of looking badly in public.

Since Life Design, my experience of my life has joy and happiness. I am confident in my interactions with others and regularly enjoy time out of my home and being with people. Many have reflected that I “look different” as a result. I feel different! My life before the program looked successful and put together, but I now experience the true joy and happiness of living a fulfilled, successful life – by design!

Fun Fact

I create fabric postcards that I mail for special occasions and have traded with people across the US and abroad including Sweden, England, Canada and Australia.

My Mission Statement

I am a powerful listener creating a sense of serenity and centeredness. I model creativity, authenticity, and compassion inspiring others to manifest their highest expressions.

Life Design has been a gift for me.  I have struggled with depression, anxiety and addiction for most of my adult life. Life Design coupled with my coach’s guidance gave me the tools I needed to break free from the bondage of my ego and open the door to discovering the power of my true essence.

Life Design provided a structure to reevaluate all the areas of my life.  I now see clearly what I came here to do and what talents I could use to be of further service in the world. If you are feeling that your life lacks focus and meaning, Life Design is a great place to try look through a different lens with a strong life coach and powerful tools of transformation to shift your levels of awareness and your life.

In the Life Design program, I found an inner strength and confidence. Four years since completing Life Design I have paid off back taxes, doubled my income and have become a Licensed Teacher in my Spiritual Center. I have found the Life Design Program such an integral part of my growth and well-being that I have also become a Certified Life Design Coach. I am doing and accomplishing things now that before seemed like just a dream.

I took Life Design several years ago. It is a expansive, and impactful coaching process. Truly life changing! So much so that I became a certified life design coach. I would highly recommend this.

Karen Leavitt

I have taken Jackie Woodside 's Life Design program twice. The process is transformational. What I love is that it combines concrete activities to assess and change your life to reflect your desires and provides easy strategies to shift the negative underlying limiting beliefs and fears which impact the experience you have of your life.
