4. Coaching Conversation with Lynette Le Roux

Tribe Sober – Your guide to alcohol-free living!

After running Tribe Sober for 5 years and helping hundreds of people to ditch the drink and embrace alcohol-free living, I’ve learned a thing or two.  My biggest insight has been that sharing our stories around alcohol is the most powerful way we can help others – that’s why the heart of this podcast is recovery stories.

In this episode I interview an important member of Tribe Sober  – Lynette Le Roux.  She came along to a workshop a few years ago, ditched the drink and then qualified as a coach so she could help others change their relationship with alcohol.

In this Episode

  • Lynette explains how her drinking gradually became problematic for her due to stress at work.
  • The workshop enabled her to stop drinking for 3 months but then she decided she could have “a glass of wine”.
  • She talks to us about how that “glass of wine” escalated to vodka drinking.
  • In spite of returning to drinking she kept connected to Tribe Sober and eventually got back on track and stayed alcohol-free.
  • Benefits of sobriety for Lynette included getting her energy back, feeling alive again – and full of joy.
  • We then talked about coaching – a thinking space to clarify our needs and purpose – your coach is your thinking partner.
  • She believes that everything we do in life (or don’t do) is because of how we feel.
  • She recommends journaling as well as coaching to get in touch with how we are really feeling.
  • Lynette asks us to get curious about our cravings – what do we really want?  What else would make us feel better?
  • “Don’t lose yourself looking for that buzz” – she says. “What you are really looking for is connection.”
  • She recommends that people use journaling and coaching to help them apply the techniques they learned on the workshop.
