What's possible for you and those you help? Here are just a few testimonials and before/after examples of how the Pressure-Free Method has transformed lives:

Meet Emma Woodhouse.

Emma is currently completing the Pressure-Free Living Certification Program.

I wanted to work with Elle because I wanted to add another skill to my coaching repertoire as pressure is a HUGE part of being an athlete and successful athletes know how to be calm and “pressure-free”. I also wanted to be Pressure-Free myself. I felt stressed all the time. I was binge-eating, biting my nails, and feeling like I was unable to control myself. I needed something to change.

I’m so much more aware of what triggers the stress response for me. Before I would be in a downward spiral, unable to figure out why I was getting so worked up. Now I’m able to notice when and why I’m getting stressed as well as having the tools to calm myself down in a matter of seconds!

I no longer bite my nails. My nails have never looked better! I did a photoshoot recently and it was the first time I was able to relax when getting my picture taken because I wasn’t thinking about how my hands looked. I’m so happy that I no longer have pain there.

When I’m Pressure-Free, good things come to me. Within the first few weeks of working with Elle, I got my first ever coaching client! I was not even trying to acquire a client at the time. Good things happen when I show up confident, joyful, and Pressure-Free all of which I learned with Elle!

I love working with Elle because I feel like she gets me! She understands what I’m going through because she has gone through them herself. Her kindness and generosity towards her clients is unmatched! She truly cares so deeply about my transformation as a healthy, Pressure-Free person as well as my business goals! I could not have asked for a better coach! 

Elle gave me tools that I could use every second of every day of my life when I felt that stress coming on and reduce it immediately, if not just get rid of it. It's fantastic. I became a better boss for my employees, a better mother to my daughter, and an overall better person for the world.

I think a lot of people in sales would extremely benefit from this, because if we're not aware how to stay stress-free, we interact with those negative emotions. That's not going to get us the sale. That's not going to form a good relationship, and that's not going to form that good impression that we need.

How do you put a price tag on your physical and mental and emotional health? - Kyra Wallace

After two months of not booking any high ticket clients in my business and dealing with the stress, fear and uncertainty, I had an opportunity to learn the Pressure-Free method from Elle. I immediately put into practice and saw a drastic change in my being and my reactions to stressful situations. Two days after her coaching, I booked a $5000 client out of the blue.

I am incredibly thankful for Elle’s method and I’m blown away by her passion to help people stop being victims of stress and start achieving lives full of joy. - Heather Chesky

After the first session, I felt stronger, like no challenge was unconquerable. As the sessions went on, I noticed I was doing better than I ever thought I could.

In 8th grade, I was struggling to maintain B’s in my harder classes. I soon had all A’s. As for my cross country, after all my sessions, I had nearly broken my goal by 2 minutes. I can’t tell you how much this has changed my life.

My advice to anyone is to take these sessions and start living stress-free. You have no idea what you can accomplish until you don’t have stress anymore - Nicholas Newton

What if you could show them simple routines that start to turn around procrastination and perfectionism? In the Pressure-Free Certification Program, you will:

  • Test-drive routines for yourself that you can then teach to others that include concepts like optimal timing.
  • Understand why we get stuck, and have a rubric that helps release us from what holds us back and causes self-sabotage.
  • Experience a variety of concepts for visioning, long-term planning, daily planning, financial systems, and tracking for success.
