I’m Paul Lessley

Certified Peer Recovery Coach

Helping You Find & Forge Your Path of Recovery

Peer Recovery Coaching

You want to overcome alcohol and/or addiction but you’re not sure where, or how to start. I understand the process of recovery because I’ve been where you’re at, and can help guide you through it.

Guiding You to Sobriety Success

Release the True You!

The Best Version of You has been in there all along. It’s just been hidden… until now.  There are many reasons why people like us slip into addiction. For some, it happened after being prescribed medication by a doctor and for others it may have began in our youth as we tried to find ways of escaping our reality.

Whatever your reason, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to use ever again. There is a world out there just waiting for people like you to come out of hiding, and share your amazing gifts, skills and talents with the rest of us. Won’t you join me in sharing the real you with the world?

Build & maintain healthy, balanced relationships.

Build an unbreakable spiritual practice.

Get healthy in all aspects of your life, including your physical self.

Discover the joy of having a healthy, happy home life.

Connect and engage with your community.

Start using the skills, gifts and talents you were born with.

Ally & Confidant

You’ll learn that I’ve got your back and you can always talk to me about anything, and I can’t and won’t share what we talk about with anyone else.

Advocate

More than just having your back, I’ll go to bat for you too! Not sure how to deal with an organization? Ask me, and I’ll be there to do it with you.

Truth Teller

I won’t sugar coat things for you. You need someone in your life who will give it to you straight so you can keep moving forward to the best version of you.

Community Organizer

By community, I mean a network of friends and allies I’ll help you meet. Nobody successfully recovers alone, and you won’t have to.

Motivator & Cheerleader

You’ll get excited  about everything you’re doing to be a better you, and I’ll be your biggest cheerleader when you can’t do it yourself.

What is Recovery Coaching?

A recovery coach is a friend, companion, and advocate who wants to help guide you to achieve your goals in recovery. The difference is that this friend has been through the process of recovery and has the knowledge and information you need to expertly guide you on your journey.

I won’t tell you what to do or what I think you should be doing. That’s not my place. And, I can’t do the work for you, but I’m here to make sure you do the right work, according to your recovery goals.

Who is Recovery Coaching For?

I help people who are in the earliest stages of recovery. I know that something has already happened to get you here, and I’m here to help you move forward and take back your life.

About Me

First and foremost, I want to thank you for taking the time to check out this page. #Grateful

Of the many things I’ve learned about myself is that my success in sobriety is directly tied to those I work with. Of course, I absolutely love what I do in helping people like you achieve successful and lasting sobriety, but if I were here just for your sake or I was somehow here to fix you then I would be some kind of self-important jerk and a prisoner of my own ego.

Rather than view you as someone I can egoically bestow my knowledge upon, I believe you are the most valuable resource in my recovery. I need you, maybe even more than you need me. Because of this unique win-win relationship that I know is true and possible, I invite you to have a conversation with me.

Let’s talk and see what the future has to offer us both.

Warm Regards,
Paul
