Our Story

IMG_1129_no spot.jpg


Hello from Lianne and Hannah, auntie and niece and co-creators of A Handpicked Life. Although we are from different generations and have very different personality types and life experiences, our common thread was apparent. In how transformational the combination of life coaching with somatic practices had been in our lives.

This inspired us to create the A Handpicked Life Membership coaching program. We want to share the wisdom and provide the continuity and support that has enriched both our lives with as many people as possible.



Hello, I'm Hannah Cummins, I am an astrologer and co-founder of A Handpicked Life. I specialise in combining ancient wisdom, archetypal systems and the cycles of nature for deeper self understanding, compassion and fulfilment. Drawing on many tools such as astrology, human design, ancient Chinese philosophy and more! I began my journey and career in the personal development space after a few years ago after a major identity crisis. 

Like many people, I have a tendency to be very 'in the mind', logic driven and disconnected from my body. Which in our society served me well (on paper), yet I never felt content or truly happy with my life. I found myself taking an unfulfilling path that was 'expected of me'. Caught in a cycle of 'just getting through' and burnout and I always lacked balance. 


It was only when I began to work with somatic practices and energy work that things really began to shift. When using these practices, partnered with life coaching exercises, I was able to get my body on board with my mind, cultivate balance and start to ground in real, sustainable changes into my life.

​Hello I am Lianne Campbell, life and wellbeing coach and somatic guide, Co-Creator of A Handpicked Life. I have over 30 years experience in the field of health and well being.

Before becoming a life coach 15 years ago, I started my career as a dancer and choreographer. From a very young age I was always acutely aware of how my physical state affected my mental and emotional wellbeing. When I hit problems with my health, which in turn affected my career and every other area of my life, it led me to study ancient philosophies, practices and complimentary approaches to health and wellbeing. Many of which became powerful aids on my own healing journey, shaping my career into what I do today.


From a personal perspective and from feedback from hundreds of clients over the years, I have experienced time and time again how energy work and embodiment practices partnered with life coaching techniques are key in creating profound and lasting change.

Today I love sharing that which has enriched my life and that of so many others in ways that I could never have dreamed possible.


My memoirs are documented in my book, Lessons From Leela.
