It Can Be Lonely At The Top

Dr. Austin Leigh is a globally recognized life strategist known for her unparalleled expertise in helping extraordinary individuals achieve as much fulfillment personally as they do professionally.

Exceptional success — whether as the CEO of a sprawling empire or as a celebrity dazzling under the spotlight— comes with hidden challenges. For all the accolades and achievements, there are unwelcome and unspoken trade-offs that put health and happiness at risk: the weight of countless decisions and unrelenting responsibilities, the silent pressure of always being observed, judged, and possibly misunderstood, privacy concerns, and limited trust circles that lead to isolation, loneliness, and unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Dr. Austin Leigh has a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by the world’s top one percent and believes passionately that professional success should not come at the expense of personal happiness. She will help you achieve both – because when it’s lonely at the top, you need someone you trust to walk beside you.

Dr. Austin Leigh has been helping people achieve happiness, optimum health, and personal fulfillment for over two decades and has worked with some of the world’s most creative and successful individuals who turned to her for her unparalleled level of advice and wisdom when the weight of their professional lives threatened to overshadow their personal happiness.

Over the decades, she has gained extensive experience working with exceptional people on a one-to-one basis, as well as speaking to large audiences about emotional intelligence and relationships. She taught “How to Boost Your Creative Brain Power” at Stanford University and “How to Achieve Well-Being” to corporate audiences worldwide.

Dr. Austin Leigh has penned award-winning books, contributed to Psychology Today, and has been a national radio and television guest. In her earlier years, her work with teen girls was lauded by top psychologists and psychiatrists, and her work in the benzodiazepine withdrawal field, both as a coach and a teacher to medical professionals, gained her global recognition as an expert in health and wellbeing.

Dr. Austin Leigh’s professional experience rests on solid academic achievements: a doctorate in psychology, trauma recovery, postdoc studies in social neuroscience, polyvagal theory, the gut microbiome, and certification in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University and board certification in sexology. Her proprietary Four Cornerstones of Well-Being ™ were born from these studies.

Her clients credit her as being the single most important person to help them achieve as much success personally as they do professionally. They do not hesitate to recommend her services; thus, most clients come to her through word of mouth.

Services - Customized Well-Being

Dr. Austin Leigh provides tailored, bespoke support for mental, emotional, relationship, and social well-being, enabling clients to achieve as much personal success as they do professionally. Dr. Austin Leigh’s services are as unique as her clients. She doesn’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach, recognizing that each client has distinct needs and circumstances. Her work is rooted in discretion, confidentiality, and a deep understanding and empathy for her clients.

Her services are certainly not right for everyone, and she is as selective about who she works for as her clients are about who they choose to work with. Working with only the most exceptional individuals, she helps her clients navigate the unique challenges of fame and fortune and the emotions, desires, fears, and dreams hidden behind their public persona that prevent them from being truly happy, healthy, and fulfilled.

Everything Dr. Austin Leigh does is about personal service and attention. Most clients commission her to spend time with them in person, so she is happy to travel to them. However, she also meets clients at the San Francisco office or connects virtually. Private individual or group retreats in serene locations are available.
