Travels With A Daughter’s Ashes
Now Available as an Audiobook
Becky Livingston is a writer, teacher and author of the memoir The Suitcase & The Jar: Travels With a Daughter’s Ashes, completed after travelling across the globe for more than two years.
As a man moving out of a rewarding career and a great job into another phase of life I was very uneasy about what the future might hold. I had the good fortune to be introduced to Becky and to work with her as my coach. Becky was wonderful to engage with – insightful, intelligent, respectful, and committed to the process. In some of the later meetings she would remind me of something I had said when we started working together which connected numerous dots and really demonstrated the level of attention she paid to working with me. With Becky’s coaching I am moving forward with a much higher level of confidence in, and excitement about, what lies ahead for me.

What a night! What a reading! It was wonderful. In all ways. Festivals love good books but they need great presenters, of which you are one.

You know that brilliant advice you give to all your friends and loved ones…the voice that seems to have wisdom and experience all under the belt? I was, like many others, unable to hear it for myself. Through coaching with Becky, I learned to locate that voice and now, it is louder and clearer than ever before and I am finally listening to myself. The difference this has made in my life is massive to say the least. Becky came to every session prepared, dedicated and with an open ear. Becky listened with such intent and understanding, remembered all the details from our sessions (large or small), and created an open and safe space throughout every second of the experience. I am very thankful for Becky’s time and commitment to this journey.
