About me and what I do
Hey! I'm Laura, a Self-Love Expert & Empowerment Coach for women. My method is using a holistic approach. I empower women step back into their power, by rewriting past beliefs to help them gain clarity and confidence in their lives for the most fulfilling, vibrant future!

I'm a certified NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapy Master Practitioner, with a diploma in CBT, life & spiritual life coaching, as well as psychology and mindfulness.

My journey from self-loathing to becoming a Self-Love Expert & Empowerment Coach
It all started at the age of 18, when I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, my world changed so quickly, from a once energetic social kinda gal, to feeling lost, scared, numb and quite honestly, depressed.
This is when I experienced my first spiritual awakening. A near death experience which led me to speak up and finally ask for help. One thing I did know, was that I didn't want to die, and so my healing journey began...
It of course, like anything in life has been far from linear. If I was to tell the entire story here, I’d be close to writing a book (which one day, I will) so I aim to keep it as brief as possible, but will also try to give you a real, honest picture of what it’s been like.
After my diagnosis in 2009, I had my first inpatient hospital admission, which I wasn’t prepared for. It was demeaning, degrading and the treatment completely disgusting. In some ways I do believe that admission made things worse for me mentally and the support just wasn’t there.
I discharged myself after a few months because it was becoming more detrimental than helpful. A few months after that, with no after support, I began to relapse. This time I tried to manage on my own fearful of going back into hospital.
I ‘coped’ as well as I could but I felt alone in this battle, people around me didn’t really understand. I was cold, miserable and really unsure of who I was. My life felt pointless and I felt completely worthless.
Despite this I tried to carry on and got into university, far from living my ‘best life’. They say uni years are the best years of your life, mine definitely weren’t. I felt isolated from everyone else because I wasn’t ‘normal’ so I had to deliberately distance myself as I didn’t know how else to manage. It was all too much, too overwhelming and my anxiety was eating me alive. It was certainly no way of living and mental health then just wasn't spoken about..
I managed to graduate after 5 long years and several more admissions, but it was far from easy. I was SO proud of myself after being told on many occasions, by so many people that it wasn’t possible for me and that I ought to just give up. That gave me drive to keep going, and keep living! I wouldn't be beaten.
Many years of my life have been taken away due to one of the most severe mental health illnesses with the highest mortality rate amongst all, anorexia. Despite my setbacks, I have remained strong enough to know I had more to give life and much more to see. I had a purpose and a calling...
I’ve had many spiritual awakenings through this crazy journey, and in my last hospital admission, something changed...
I felt positive, empowered and determined to get better, to get my life back on track and do all the things that I dreamed of. After all, the only person stopping me was myself! Anorexia did not, and does not rule my life!
From then, I read a lot of self-help and personal development books, I decluttered my space, my environment, my mind as well as removing everything that no longer served me whether that was social media accounts, news outlets, email subscriptions, unhelpful apps, you name it, I ditched it. All so that I could start living in a way that felt wholesome and nourishing, allowing me to grow.
I began to rediscover myself through meditation, journaling, working with coaches, doing a deep dive to uncover old limiting beliefs. I was fully committed to changing my life for the better and this is exactly why I now do what I do, helping other women live the life they desire, because no one should be left feeling stuck or unhappy; whether that's your mindset, your body, a job or relationship, it's time to change, take action and live life on your terms, in a way that feels f*cking amazing!! Because it is POSSIBLE!
We only get one life and it’s my mission to help other women live it in a way that feels incredible, not by the means of society or other people.
If you've got to this point and think "I f*cking need this!" then I would LOVE to take you on this journey to freedom within yourself and your life.
